“Could it be that God was an extra-terrestrial? What do we mean when we say that heaven is in the clouds? From Jesus Christ to Elvis Presley, every culture tells us of high-flying bird men who zoom around the world creating magnificent works of art and choosing willing followers to share in the eternal glory from beyond the stars. Can all these related phenomena merely be dismissed as coincidence?” 
― Erich von DänikenChariots of the Gods

 

Born on April 14th, 1935, in Zofingen, Switzerland, Erich von Däniken was educated at the College St-Michel in Fribourg, where already as a student he occupied his time with the study of the ancient holy writings. While managing director of a Swiss 5-Star Hotel, he wrote his first book, Chariots of the Gods, which was an immediate bestseller in the United States, Germany, and later in 38 other countries. 
Erich von Däniken's books have been translated into 28 languages, and have sold 60 million copies worldwide. From his books two full-length documentary films have been produced: Chariots of the Gods and Messages of the Gods. Of the more than 3,000 lectures which Erich von Däniken has given in 25 countries, over 500 were presented at universities. Fluent in four languages, Erich von Däniken is an avid researcher and a compulsive traveller, averaging 100'000 miles each year to remote spots of the Earth. This enables him to closely examine the phenomena about which he writes. 
Erich von Däniken is a member of the Swiss writers association, the German writers association, and the International PEN-Club. He was awarded with an Honorary Doctorate degree by the State University of Bolivia. He received the "Huesped Illustre" award from the cities of Ica and Nazca in Peru. In Brasil he received the "Lourenço Filho" award in Gold and Platin, and in Germany he was awarded with the "Order of Gordon Bleu du Saint Esprit" (together with the German astronaut Ulf Merbold).(source-http://www.goodreads.co

                       

                       GIORGIO A. TSOUKALOS 

has often been described as the real-life Indiana Jones. As a trailblazer he is changing the way the world thinks about the Ancient Astronaut Theory.

Giorgio A. Tsoukalos is also Erich von Daniken’s official representative in the United States and the rest of the English-speaking world. For over 10 years, Tsoukalos has been the Director of Erich von Daniken’s Center for Ancient Astronaut Research (A.A.S. R.A. – Archaeology, Astronautics and SETI Research Association). He is also the Publisher of Legendary Times Magazine, the world’s only and definitive Ancient Astronaut research journal.

Tsoukalos has traveled the world extensively (54 countries …and counting). Today, he is one of a few people who have actually visited and explored nearly all the mysterious places our planet has to offer. Giorgio has conducted and participated in several risky expeditions and adventures to the remote corners of the planet in search of the mysterious. In his undying quest to uncover the Truth he has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles, seeking out strange archaeological artifacts and monuments which will further strengthen his research. Over the years, he has gained first-hand access to, photographed and measured ancient artifacts and other archaeological relics not currently accessible to the general public.

 Phillip Coppens

started his writing career as an investigative journalist, covering intelligence activities and politics.In 1995, he was a co-founder of Frontier 2000(later called Frontier Magazine), a periodical with a circulation centered primarily in the Benelux countries. In 1999, he served as the primary researcher for The Stargate Conspiracy, a book about ancient Egypt and the degree to which its history serves as a continuing influence on contemporary politics and politicians.

Coppens' second book, The Canopus Revelation (2004), questioned the assumption that ancient Egyptians associated their god Osiris with the constellation of Orion. Instead he proposed Canopus, thesecond brightest star in the night-time sky. He appeared at Quest Conference 2005 to give a presentation on this idea.

In Servants of the Grail (2009), Coppens suggested real-life counterparts for the characters in Chrétien de TroyesPerceval, the Story of the Grail. These included the identification of Rotrou III, Count of Perchewith Perceval. Also in 2009, he contributed a chapter to Ancient Code: Are You Ready for the Real 2012?, entitled "Ancient Inroads Towards a New Age".

From 2010 to 2012, Coppens was a frequent contributor to the History Channel's Ancient Aliens series. Nigerian journalist J.K. Obatala, writing about a month after Coppens' death, described him as an "ancient alien buff."Obatala credited Coppens with helping to debunk a claim that the Dogon Ayantu (spiritual leaders) of Mali had astronomical knowledge they could only have obtained from visitors from Sirius – in an article entitled "Dogon Shame."

In October 2012, he was a featured presenter at Intrepid Magazine's Paradigm Symposium.

A eulogy for Coppens, published in Intrepid's January print edition, included a quotation from Coppens' final post to his personal blog: "I was diagnosed with an extremely rare case of cancer, angio sarcoma, which affects less than 200 people in the U.S. (each year). Each case is almost by default unique… and so I found that the man who normally studies anomalies, has become a medical enigma a well.”Roughly a fortnight later, Coppens died.Wiki

                                   George Noory

George Noory, host of the nationally syndicated program,Coast to Coast AM, says if he weren’t a national radio talk show host he’d be in politics. Heard by millions of listeners, Coast To Coast AM airs on approximately 564 stations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Guam.

While hosting The Nighthawk, a wildly successful, late-night program on KTRS in St. Louis, Noory was recruited by Premiere Radio Networks to guest host on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell.  He became the permanent host of the phenomenally successful over-night program on January 1, 2003, following Bell’s retirement.  Since then, Noory’s audience has continued to grow.

Noory captivates program listeners with his discussions of paranormal phenomena, time travel, alien abductions, conspiracies and all things curious and unexplained. He is driven, he has said, by the desire to solve the great mysteries of our time. From his first days as a radio broadcaster he says, “I’ve wanted to cover stories that the mainstream media never touch—the unusual, the paranormal and things like that. I learned that broadcast was the best business for exploring these issues, and I’ve been doing it for 33 years.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             has created award winning digital products and services. Mr. Martell consults with clients on what strategies they can pursue in the mobile, interactive and social gaming space. Mr. Martell's extensive experience in all forms of mobile and interactive media have proven invaluable to industry leading companies like UNBC, Intel, HP, Yahoo!, MTV, JDATE, and many more.

Jason also co-founded the successful sites www.Godtube.com and www.BooyaMedia.com before moving onto to his current project which is currently being developed in "Stealth Mode".

For over 15 years, Mr. Martell has also been one of the leading researchers and lectures specializing in ancient civilization technologies. Mr Martell's research has been featured worldwide on numerous television and radio networks such as The Discovery Channel, Syfy Channel, and the BBC. He is currently a regular guest on the show "Ancient Aliens" on the History Channel. His latest book "Knowledge Apocalypse" is available on Amazon.com.

Most recently Mr. Martell garnered worldwide attention by recreating a working model of one of science's most profound mysteries - the "Baghdad Battery". Residing in the national museum of Iraq, the discovery of this 2,000 year old device suggests the modern day battery was not invented in 1800 by Count Alassandro Volt, but was in use two millennia earlier. Mr Martell's recreation was instrumental in proving the Baghdad Battery was capable of generating current.
