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.”

Hello Chris Defago,
I read your comment and I would like to know more about your sitings because I've been observing and communicating with ET's and UFO's near my house in northeastern AZ and it's been happening since May 2018.
I'm wondering where you are witnessing these phenomenon's and how do they communicate with you.
Hope to hear from you
Thank you,
Lainey Snyder

Mr. Daniken,
I was wondering if you and George have ever considered the similarity in shape (physical) between Oak Island and Antarctica. Could Oak Island, be a legend on a map for what actually might exist in Antarctica?

Subject: Before you go I would like to say hello By: Kori Ayliffe Date: 19/07/2016

I need you to know that your research has been correct all along. We have been on this Earth and if you had enough time you could write a book on Year Zero when the first female angel fell and was punished to live as a human over and over until her time was served. We are in this very time now and I am able to speak about my journeys and show you proof of whom I am. Even on an episode they showed my caucasian mummy that I know if you took my DNA we would have identical DNA. In the book of Revelation it speaks about me and my time being up. I could give you detail that would let you know exactly what I am and that I know of only one other person because he fell just after me and has had the punishment of reliving life over and over.He has the proof of audio of us speaking in a language that has never been spoken except by other angels. And this man is just not a man he has a huge amount of fans and popularity and leaves his lyrics right out there about walking this Earth yet it falls on deaf ears. If you are interested I promise you all your years for seeking answers you will be one of the most talked about man for years if you discover us. Please believe in me.
