Erich von Daniken

Erich von Daniken

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)

Opening Quote;     

     “If you take us as the crown of creation, or the top of evolution, we look at our self as the greatest, the biggest. We say, how incredible, uh, unique we are in the whole universe. We forgot to learn modesty.”

The Last Quote;

     “I think we have something, the whole humanity, in our genes. Somewhere in our genes, it is coded that extraterrestrials were here thousands of years ago.”

Subject: My theory on aliens By: Jeff Date: 20/07/2019

I remember reading about how there are actually 3 heavens. The heaven god resides in. The 2nd heaven which is outer space and finally the 3rd heaven which is the sky above us. If god cast satan and his followers out of heaven then that means they now reside in outer space. And if satan and his followers eventually get cast down to earth then my theory is these so called aliens will in truth be satan and his minions disguised as aliens,probably acting benevolent at first. Tell me what you think of this theory

Von Danniken was convicted of fraud three times and was jailed twice. He is a complete charlatan. Don’t you people know this?

I think everybody makes mistakes. But you must be perfect and been a good little child. This is about Ancient Aliens. If you can't say anything that relates to this show, then burgeroff!

Subject: Re: My theory on aliens By: Debunker Date: 18/08/2019

Your theory makes no sense. VonDanidork is a convicted fraud who spent time in jail for embezzlement. His writings are speculative nonsense. He is a con-man.

Subject: alien exist/ suggestion By: edwin bernardo Date: 16/06/2019

i love watching your show's anything about alien, to all the thing 's that you show proof about aliens I surely believe that the alien exist . but all the question's and showing the impossible structures . I believe that the reason why the alien 's doesn't show themselves , probably they're walked and live among us in the fast and something very wrong happened because of their appearance , their look's . that's the reason why they decided to help us behind the scene. just a thought of a simple Man like me. thank you !

Subject: A very strange story telling little rock. By: Donald Date: 01/01/2019

I believe this little rock tells the story of the beginning. There's a fossil of sorts on it. To help prove part of the story it tells. Amongst many, many other sites on it. This little rock is so balanced, if you touch or rock it just a little. It vibrates down to a door stop sound until it stop's. There's at least 6 or more different minerals involved in the make up of it. Contact me, I have picture's I can send. I Believe you might want to be involved with this discovery. Thanks

Subject: Get it right ! By: Rico Date: 02/12/2018

It's the Sun of God...the sun is a living entity...not just a ball of hydrogen gas.
The holy spirit is not a ghost but a acsended human trying to lead us home.
If you want to say
