A message from Erich Von Daniken
In brief what Daniken was proposing was that proof of other civilizations and visitors from other planets that visit us would negate our belief in Gods, Magicians, the Moon, Black cats and Religions. We are still an emerging species. I have commented before we are not unlike an ants nest on the edge of a 10 lane highway compared to our visitors.
It is no wonder the institutions particularly the powerful Religious Industry Ptd Ltd or those that control what we read and hear were not enamored with him.
An article in the New York Times not a particularly trustworthy newspaper accused him of being a playboy, stealing $130,000, a fraudster, an embezzler, a thief, a forger and a prestige‐seeker. While managing a hotel he was supposed to have obtained money by misrepresentation of his financial situation, falsifying the hotel's books to make it appear solvent, and that his second book Gods from ‘Outer Space’ was written in prison”
Hang on don’t go away there is more. “A liar and an unstable and criminal psychopath with a hysterical character, yet fully accountable for his acts”
Much to the accusers credit he was not accused of being a Pedo but yes it does appear he was also racist. His theory was that the first experiments were not a resounding success. The New York Times saw that as a racist comment, which is strange as there were no races perhaps no tribes. A group of primitive, grunting primates roaming an almost barren earth not unlike Monkeys but they did not constitute races.
When the first paragraph by Daniken above becomes reality the New York Times has some apologies to make. The moral here, criticize governments by all means but don’t mess with the church.
Carl Sagan wrote of Daniken’s book , "I know of no recent books so riddled with logical and factual errors as the works of Von Daniken." It was earlier Sagan who originally warmed to Extra-Terrestrials was told by the American Military intelligence to shut up talking about bloody extraterrestrials. He duly complied.
Racism had to appear somewhere in the charges and it did. Archaeologists and historians were equally critical, with some pointing to Von Daniken's racism for claims like "Was the black race a failure and did the extraterrestrials change the genetic code by gene surgery and then program a white or a yellow race?"
We were until the experiments took place just another group of Primates. Did the NYT prefer to use the word race instead of group of primates?
A very valid question which should be opened up for comment, a comment made well after the word tribal was swapped with the word Racial. We were not tribes nor races we were a continuing experiment.
Our forefathers and foremothers looked very much like our closest cousin DNA-wise which was the Ape and they we not all shapes and colors of the rainbow but we are, so what happened you ask.
In the order of things it was only recently that females of the species were accepted into this prestigious male club I assume because gender diversity was becoming extremely popular and the females of the species were bitterly complaining accusing the church of being an old boys club and talking about the lack of inclusiveness and they also wanted a part of the action, and quite rightly so.
Religion creates order in the word, it holds humans terrified and in a state of awe. We are terrified of Hell, Fire and the wrath of this God and the afterlife that was to meet us if we transgressed his Laws. I have written before, the Sumerians also had ‘Gods’, they arrived as Gods and Angels from the sky in Chariots of Fire.
Mr Daniken wrote about them at length, they arrived thousands of years BEFORE Christianity and Islam. Christianity arrived about 8000 years later and merged many of the Sumerian beliefs myths, beliefs, superstitions and symbols into their own religion. But their visitors were real, the primitives also saw them as ‘Gods’
We can believe that Lot's wife disobeyed God's warning by watching the destruction of Sodom and was punished by being turned into a ‘pillar of salt’ and that our God made ladies from the rib of a man, but people cannot believe in “Flying Saucers” No, we have our own Gods why do we need any more?
Now I am not by nature a gullible person but I would find those stories a very hard ask to believe along with thousands of others. So the question I pose is why are the “outer space” visitors who are technically billions of years ahead of us in technology long ago also not believed, but Gods and Wizards are.
Now say for example if one wanted to draw the full wrath of the establishment for denying the existence of a Supreme being first installed in the minds of man at the dawn of time then denying him will be met with ….…well ask Mr Daniken and this Carl chappie.
