I wanted to read this book a long time ago, but never got time for it. Now after listening, I understand why it was a bomb when it came out. For a people who feel that there is much more out there that official sources are telling us, this material is an eye opener. I believe this book has inspired a lot of scholars to re-think conventional history of our world and made some scientists to question there knowledge (although I don't think many would admit it). There many great articles and other books that, I believe, this book had given birth to. There are more then 45 years passed since it came out first, but questions this book rises are still unanswered. For further seek, I suggest to read Earth Chronicles by Zecharia Sitchin, where author elaborates our history from translated clay tablets of ancient Sumeria.
This book is definitely for open-minded people. But even if you are a strong believer in the Bible, you have to admit that some things mentioned in this book make sense. You don't have to believe them, but it makes you think.
Love history books, the one that tell the truth not the one with all the lies and deception!
This is a great book
All of it
No i read the book and saw the movie.
Creates Open Mind
The facts were delivered from the authors viewpoint and it's up to the reader to agree or not.
yes the facts just kept coming and making a lot of sense by putting new logical answers to ancient questions.
This is a book I would listen to more than once as it has so much information and leaves a lot of room for thought and reflection.
Glad I listened to it. There are some very interesting, thought provoking ideas brought into focus. I've been to many of the sites mentioned and it is almost unbelievable to think that the native peoples did these remarkable feats without any assistance from a more advanced culture.
The book toke me away in a journey that made me think
What moved me in this book are the facts that are explained in a deterrent way
This book gets you to think about Alien beings visiting the Earth. I really enjoyed the questions that he made throughout the book. If you keep an open mind when listening to this book, you might just believe that Alien did visit the Earth.
I was thrilled to see this book and others by the author added to Audible's offerings. I first read this book when I was a teen; even at that green age, its veracity resonated. There is a core of truth in Chariots of the Gods. I hope to see more ancient astronaut literature on Audible, particularly all of the books of Zecharia Sitchin.
Chariots of the Gods should be the basis of science courses. It should also be read along with any traditional materials in world history courses.
I like this book, has lots of great theories. But it is outdated, I recomend other books unless you know nothing about Erich Von Daniken.
This book examines the theory that the earth was visited by aliens to alter mankind's DNA and boost its "humanity" by planting new beliefs. Bold supposition and the author offers no clear proof, but does raise some compelling arguments based on ancient artifacts and documents. It is an interesting listen but don't expect to find a smoking gun or to have an epiphany after reading this. Its just a bunch of theories that are fun to listen to and hold as much weight as any other theory that can't be proven.
Most of the reasoning was fine however it annoyed me when he would say something like "look at all the things we didn't think were possible 20 years ago but that now are accepted as normal." as if this proves or predicts anything.
My real question here is "why". Why should these aliens do all this and then walk away? Also I wonder why the author is so aggressive about his theories that he attacks the "narrow mindedness" in the scientific and religious communities. What is he trying to accomplish with this book? If we accept his theories then what?
