5.0 out of 5 stars The truth must always be sought., 22 April 2012
This review is from: Signs of the Gods? (Paperback)
A must read for all religious sceptics and agnostics. Don't misunderstand though, this should in no way shake the faith of believers in God, Allah or whatever, Von Daniken merely asks questions and presents evidence. Yes God exists, in some form or another I firmly believe, but he was definitely not Jehovah, who was an astronaut.
Every religion, major or minor, documents clearly, for those who want to read them, the arrival of astronauts, descriptions of their machines and weapons, sometimes in technical detail.
One often hears the bible and other works misquoted, or quoted to back up a statement or theory, so I took the trouble to reread the passages referred to, not because I disbelieved Von Daniken, but to confirm the exactitude of what he was saying. The result was a resounding confirmation. Everything you need to know is there, hidden in plain sight, from the old scriptures and writings to Hollywood's renditions. Nobody is hiding anything, it is all there for you to access, the misunderstandings are relative to historical interpretation. Before space travel was achieved by man, the evidence was considered to be 'visions' or the workings of an overactive imagination, then when man finally started his tentative steps into space, Aliens from another planet were considered impossible because we didn't then know how to travel at the speed of light, now we know this can be achieved, the real experts have had to allow that there 'may' have been such visits.
Religious works written by stone age man have gradually been adapted to suit the political climate of the time and finally lapsed into total misunderstanding as the events receded into history and could no longer be understood in the light of the technical ability and understanding of the day.
Read Von Daniken for yourself, cross check it in the books of whatever religion you are most familiar with, it is all there.
I have acquired all Von Daniken's books over the years, lent them out to 'friends' who didn't return them and eventually I forgot to whom I had lent them, so 40 years on I found them on Audio Book, allowing me to use dead traveling time to refamiliarise myself with these works and also listen to his two latest renditions I had not in my collection and was once again excited by the truth.
For any US readers, this is written in English, there are no spelling mistakes.
