Oh my God (pun intended), I was totally into this dude when I was a teenager. I thought Chariots of the Gods was more reliable than most of my text books, which succinctly explains many of the marks I got.
Anyone else remember him? He hasn’t died or anything (and, even if he did, it would be only to be transformed into a space ancestor at Stonehenge or Easter Island). His theories are on view, partly, in Ridley Scott’s new flick, Prometheus. Personally, I think he’s awesome.
Anyone else have a von Daniken-inspired revelation to pass along? Be kind. When crop circles and giant rust-free phalluses start appearing on your front lawn, you’ll regret being critical of this god-like genius.
