Recently I saw a documentary called Ancient Aliens.
It left me dumbstruck for few moments , cause the explanations (though hypothetical) given in favor of the theory sounds good and logical. The video here is the first episode of the five series. And I am sure it brings forth another aspect of entire history before us.
The documentary is based on Erick Von Daniken’s book “Chariots of the God? “. It brings forth a theory that in ancient times, aliens used to visit earth and they had been in touch with earthlings. His interpretations of some of the epics like Old Testament, The Mahabharata, The Ramayana , Book of Epoch and several others shed light on his theory. The descriptions like the arrival of so-called god on some Vehicular like thing added with sound effects and smoke gives an indication of a rocket. Also the god depicted in several paintings around the world show similar structure. Their depiction of god with some halo adorn with horns looks familiar if we compare them with present day astronauts wearing helmet and antennae.
Also some amazing facts like drawings in ancient city of Nazca, ancient maps showing exact boundaries of Antarctica and several others are definitely calling for better explanations from archeologists.
Amazingly I searched for the book and luckily I got an e-Copy. Some links which I found useful:
