We are not alone, and have never been alone on this planet! (Part 2 of 3)
In the years that followed publication of Chariots of the Gods, interest in our ancient ancestry (refered to as "alien activity" at that time) continued to grow. Erich von Daniken had succeeded in publicizing important archeological finds and connecting them to stories from the Old Testament, as well as to legend, myths, and stories from countless cultures around the world. This was significant from the standpoint that it connected and validated historical events, which were difficult to believe for most people, such as the story of the Great Flood and Noah's Ark, stories of Moses going to the "mountain where God dwells," and the story of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:1-28). All of these stories, legends, myths, whatever you would like to call them, occurring around 1400-1600 BCE, have supernatural implications. The so-called "gods" (beings from other physical realities) during this period in Earth's history were very much involved in man's evolution and world events.
Erich von Daniken's pursuit of the truth by documenting and connecting similar stories from different cultures in different geological areas of the world is proof that these things happened. Think about it. People of the world at that time obviously did not travel in planes, trains, and automobiles. In fact, there were very few roads to even travel beyond the boundaries of their individual towns and cities. Boats were primarily used for fishing and not built for long-distance travel across vast oceans. So how did these different cultures, that lived so far apart from each other, record similar stories?
Here's my take on that. I think that the people (the "gods") that did actually travel around in "flying machines" powered by "great energy," having what appeared to be supernatural abilities, would have definitely seemed like "gods" to the people walking around on the ground riding animals and thinking that fire and the wheel were great discoveries. I think that these gods, our ancient ancestors, people from other physical realities, were very real people and a part of our heritage that needs to be discussed as truth. I believe they could travel wherever and whenever they wanted to go. We need to understand that the DNA of modern humans is that of our ancestors, wherever they came from. We need to seek out the knowledge they passed on to humans of that era. While much of that knowledge has been lost, some still exists; and much can still be learned by changing our perspective to be more in line with our current understanding of the Universe.
There are countless other examples that I could give to support what I have just shared, not to mention other authors, scientists, research professionals, books, magazine articles, and media presentations that support these findings. There is an abundance of information you can find on the Internet that covers this topic, but no one will flat out say, "it's the truth." I think everyone is waiting for ET to land a UFO in the middle of a major city and hold a press conference to tell the good people of or planet that they are here and have been vacationing here for thousands of years:) Maybe then?
