Publisher's Summary

When Chariots of the Gods was published 50 years ago, it began a worldwide change in humanity's view of the cosmos. In an era of the military space race, Erich von Daniken boldly proclaimed that Earth had been visited by more advanced beings early in our history. But prescientific man had no concept of spaceships, so he called their vehicles "chariots", and those driving the chariots became "gods".

Over the next five decades, von Daniken's 32 books built an ever-stronger case for Earth being visited by extraterrestrial visitors. And Chariots became an international best seller, with 30 million copies sold in more than two dozen languages. Also during that time, the case for ET visitations millennia ago was being reexamined by contemporary UFO researchers, who found evidence of modern visitations. And von Daniken expanded his perspective to encompass the present.

Now he presents his long-awaited sequel to Chariots of the Gods, proclaiming that the gods never left us, with all-new material to show that ancient aliens are still with us.

The Gods Never Left Us contends that recent advancements in biotechnology, astrophysics, engineering, and artificial intelligence not only give us a fresh perspective on his ancient astronaut theory but actually validates it. We are - as a race - embarking on the exact same trajectory of our own interplanetary colonization, just as von Daniken suggested Earth itself was colonized.

ETs are definitely at work today. And that affects all of us.

Same Information

If you've read the first book in the series than there is absolutely no need to purchase this one.

intricate to the point of almost boredom

I was really looking forward to listening to this book. Especially with all the technology that has become available in the years since chariots of the gods was written. this book paid attention more to genetics, genomes and the like. that is not to say that I did not enjoy the book... which I did. I will definitely be downloading more of Eric'h's works. he has no problem with throwing caution to the wind. and he stands behind every word he writes.I was just hoping that there was going to be a lot more of the use of technology to prove his theories. I loved the story of the retired geometry professor and his son. and I love how they wrapped with it. especially the part with Schrodinger's cat. I think a good story could be written about that in in and of itself. looking forward to downloading my next Erich von daniken book!

Erich has once again done an outstand job.

I would prefer to have this on real CDs, but... I have been following Erich for many years and I've asked so many of the same questions and many more. He's unafraid to challenge the mainstream. I've also been talking about reincarnation all of my life. I've told many people I remember past lives and choosing this life. Not any kind of punishment, but free choice again. I adore that Erich and many others are not confined to the chopped stories of the Bible. I was taught it when I was small, my Grandmother was convinced of it. I wasn't, and I started asking a lot of questions because the "God" in the Bible is mean. Not that I was wondering about the contents, but why she accepted most of the Bible as accurate. Years later I could answer that... She didn't consider herself an awesome. She loved her kids more than herself. Which should have been more mutual. After her croaking I started asking Churches questions they did NOT like!

I was also booted from Church, some even were less than "Please leave." For years I've watched as people in power at Churches have dismissed Pagan ways, and called Pagans Satan Worshipers. Funny, because I was part of Pagan ways for many years after my Grandmother croaked and "Satan" never came into anything. Nor was anything evil. So, I adore the intelligent questions very much and diving into so much more.

I'm not a "believer" in the religion of Science. Most Science tends to ignore reincarnation and dismiss it. After all, everything is only the brain...and we are all blank slates when we're born. Well...that's not accurate, not at all, there are many that know they have lived before! The Anunnaki make sense to me, So does what Edgar Cayce did... A fantastic book, even though it's not read by Erich, Sean seems to capture him pretty well. I also very much adore the comments about "None Binary"....I have thought the exact same stuff, Erich!! Go, Go, Ancient Aliens! Hello Enki!! As well as those that were before them. Very fascinating and makes 100% sense.

Excellent Text w/ Undeniable Evidence

this book is information packed and worse listening to. to the reader, or listener in this case, is that the narrator Lacks enthusiasm for the words he is reciting. This book would have been far more entertaining and no doubt have elicited greater income for Audible had it the narrated by Stephen Bel Davies. Davies as narrated the series by zecharia sitchin and has John out of this world job at capturing the intent behind the words. The narrator of this book Falls far far shorter of that standard. It is nevertheless worth suffering through the narrator for the information the book contains. that said, I would highly recommended on the merits of the book's content.

I can see why the book is free. Not worth buying. There are much better books on the subject.

not worth the time or money

I thought this book was supposed to be a sequel, but there wasn't any new information. If you're up to date on ancient aliens there's no need to read this book

Too far fetched

Much preferred the prequel which at least was novel .
Too far fetched, and repetitive with minimal Evidence given

Very interesting

Narrator has a good flow.
Story told very well.
Interesting to say the least.
If the differences and similarities of religion and language fascinate you this is really worth a listen to.

Nothing new

Nothin I have not read before in other books. I was looking for the book to deliver something new
