Erich von Däniken, born on April 14, 1935 in Zofingen, Switzerland. During his formative years at the renowned College St-Michel in Fribourgg Switzerland, Erich von Däniken immersed himself in ancient holy writings and unsolved archaeological puzzles. As a young Gastronome, he began writing topic-related articles before eventually authoring his international best seller Chariots of the Gods?. Erich von Däniken has held countless lectures and discussions at public forums and educational institutions. His 40 books have sold over 67 million copies and have been translated into 32 languages.

Year after year, Erich von Däniken’s ideas gain more momentum in scientific circles. For example, the Nobel Prize holder Francis Crick published a book, Life Itself, where he states, “Life on Earth began in the form of micro-organisms that were sent into space towards Earth by a higher civilization billions of years ago with an unmanned rocket.”

Together with the mathematics genius Nalin Chandra Wickramasinghe, the world-famous British astrophysicist Sir Fred Hoyle published the work Evolution from Space, where the scientists support the idea that life was not created on Earth and Darwinian theories should be amended. In reality, mutations came from intelligent lifeforms from space. Erich von Däniken initially proposed these same ideas in his 1977 work According to the Evidence (Chapter 5).

In the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, No. 36, Dr. Robert A. Freitas from the Xenology Research Institute, suggested a new research project by the name of SETA. In contrast to the existing project SETI (Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence, SETA (Search for Extra-terrestrial Artifacts) would research evidence of extraterrestrials in our solar system. This is precisely what Erich von Däniken has done for 50 years.

In 1985, the first scientific anthology about Erich von Däniken’s topics appeared in From the Depths of Space. The following scientists provided contributions for this: -Dr. Luis Navia, Philosophy Professor at the New York Institute of Technology, New York, USA; -Dr. Philip A. Ianna, Astronomy Professor at the University of Virginia, USA; -Dr. Harry O. Ruppe, Aerospace Engineering Professor at the Technical University Munich; -Prof. Dr. Sir Fred Hoyle, Astrophysics Professor, Great Britain; -Dr. Francis H.C. Crick, Nobel Prize holder and Microbiology Professor, San Diego; -Dr. Dileep Kumar Kanjilal, Sanskrit Professor at the Calcutta Sanskrit College, Calcutta, India.

In the meantime, hundreds of book titles about Erich von Däniken’s ideas exist throughout the world by a multitude of authors. Countless television series and films are based on his thoughts, such as Stargate and Prometheus.

In general, it can be concluded that despite criticism from conservative chairs, the science community is warming up to Erich von Däniken’s ideas more and more. Erich von Däniken is already no longer capable of fulfilling the countless requests for lectures and discussions.[1]


1 - Chariots of the GodsChariots of the Gods?: Unsolved Mysteries of the Past (1968)

The groundbreaking classic that introduced the theory that ancient Earth established contact with aliens.

Immediately recognized as a work of monumental importance, Chariots of the Gods endures as proof that Earth has been visited repeatedly by advanced aliens from other worlds. Here, Erich von Däniken examines ancient ruins, lost cities, spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that point to extraterrestrial intervention in human history. Most incredible of all, however, is von Däniken’s theory that we are the descendants of these galactic pioneers—and he reveals the archeological discoveries that
prove it…

The dramatic discoveries and irrefutable evidence:
• An alien astronaut preserved in a pyramid
• Thousand-year-old spaceflight navigation charts
• Computer astronomy from Incan and Egyptian ruins
• A map of the land beneath the ice cap of Antarctica
• A giant spaceport discovered in the Andes

Includes remarkable photos that document mankind’s first contact with aliens at the dawn of civilization.

Chariots of the Gods – Documentary (dvd)

Fifty million stars in our galaxy have the potential of supporting life forms capable of traveling to other planets, says world-renowned authority Erich von Daniken, whose film version of his best- selling book, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, gives stunning visual proof that some form of life from outer space landed on Earth centuries ago. It took five years for von Daniken to document, on film, the physical evidence of visits by galactic travelers who came to Earth. Just what they did here and the influences they left behind is the core of the film. In search of basic truths, the film, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, takes the viewer into the far reaches of underground caves and tombs, and to the tops of desolate mountains on every major continent to show the evidence von Daniken has been collecting. Although this controversial film may provide the answers to age old mysteries, it may be the beginning of an entirely new set of questions.


02 - Gods from Outer Space

Gods From Outer Space: Return to the Stars or Evidence for the Impossible (1969)

Erich von Daniken has a very interesting approach to investigating the origins of the human race (do we come from the outer space?). He is not an educated archaeologist – he is an hotelier with great interest in history of human race, of its origins. He is ready to travel wherever there is something interesting to be seen and not yet fully explained by contemporary science. He does not claim that what he says is the truth (unlike many people who write these sorts of alternative-history books) – he only raises questions, brings forth very interesting findings.


03 - The gold of the Gods

The Gold of the Gods (1972)

Erich von Däniken, whose books have enthralled millions of readers around the world, now presents astonishing new confirmation for his revolutionary theories. Erich von Däniken’s The Gold of the Gods unveils new evidence of an intergalactic “battle of the gods” whose losers retreated to, and settled, Earth. He explores a vast, mysterious underworld of Ecuador-caves filled with gold and writings in solid gold that go back to the time of the Great Flood, bolstering von Däniken’s theory of a prehistoric earthly “era of the gods.”

Pathways to the Gods? (1981)

A spaceport in the Andes! A computer chart in Egyptian ruins! Primitive sculptures of figures wearing space suits! Erich von Daniken’s Chariots of the Gods stunned the world with the archaeological discovery that alien beings once colonized earth. Now, in Pathways to the Gods, von Daniken reveals the story of his travels following the trail of the ancient visitors-from the technologically sophisticated stone ruins in the Bolivian Andes to the sensational Sanskrit descriptions of space battles in Calcutta-new proof of von Daniken’s startling theory that man descended from the stars!

10 - The Eyes of the Sphinx.png

The Eyes of the Sphinx: The Newest Evidence of Extraterrestrial Contact in Ancient Egypt (1989)

The world-famous bestseller Chariots of the Gods introduced the theory that ancient Earth had established contact with aliens. Now, Erich von Däniken’s The Eyes of the Sphinx reveals startling evidence that could prove it.

Erich von Däniken’s theory of alien contact with the ancient world is so incredible, yet so logical and convincing, that it has become part of a wide-ranging debate that continues to this day. His claims that an alien race helped create the pyramids of Egypt were based upon the ruins themselves. And it is these ruins that now provide researchers with a never-ending source of clues, compelling discoveries, revelations, and evidence that Earth was indeed colonized by an alien race.


11 - The Return of the Gods

The Return of the Gods: Evidence of Extraterrestrial Visitations (1995)

With over 140 photographs, specially designed maps, models, and drawings, Von Däniken applies the same fact-filled analysis to Nazca that launched his 1968 Chariots of the Gods to continuous bestsellerdom. He reports on his many visits to the lost civilization of Nazca, an ancient, isolated settlement deep in the Peruvian desert. He analyzes aerial views and closeups of extraordinary markings that stretched across the land for miles, forming complex shapes and designs unnoticed from the ground but unmistakable from the air. How could primitive people have achieved such an amazing feat? Von Däniken concludes: Forget the theories about religious rituals, irrigation systems, and astrological calendars; these are creations of extraterrestrials. Impossible to explain or even envision from the ground, the mile-long “landing strip,” the curious etchings of beasts, and the immense geometric designs and giant mandalas are simple to execute–if their creators could see them from the air.


12 - The Arrival of the Gods

The Arrival of the Gods: Revealing the Alien Landing Sites of Nazca (1997)

With his 1970’s blockbuster Chariots of the Gods, Erich von Däniken challenged the scientific community to open their minds to new possibilities: “Suppose the ancient supernatural beings of traditional religions are no mere figments of mythological imagination, but are arrivals from outside our planet. Now, the world-famous author continues his controversial research into extraterrestrial visitation. Von Däniken’s latest offering draws on mountains of new evidence of unexplained phenomena, from UFO sightings and alleged abductions to archaeological discoveries of unearthly-looking beings, as well as research on human genetics that casts light on our origins outside the solar system. Armed with a collection of color photos, charts, and illustrations, Von Däniken re-examines ancient texts and cave drawings of strange beasts with no known counterparts of the times, to support his theory that they could have been created by aliens, and to form an audacious conclusion: “We are much on the minds of other life-forms in the universe.”


13 - Odyssey of the Gods

Odyssey of the Gods: The History of Extraterrestrial Contact in Ancient Greece (1999)

Erich von Däniken’s monumental Chariots of the Gods changed the way generations have looked at mythology, ancient history, and the possibility of advanced beings from other worlds visiting Earth. Now he tackles the history of Greece and again challenges our beliefs about how our civilization arose.

Using painstaking archaeological research and evidence from the writings of Plato and Aristotle, he suggests that the Greek “myths” were, in fact, very much a reality, that the Greek “gods” were actually extraterrestrial beings who arrived on Earth many thousands of years ago.

Many of you may find von Däniken’s conclusions astounding, but they are argued with such vigor and clarity that you’ll be forced to consider the implications of his findings for mankind.

Odyssey of the Gods includes new, eye-opening information about:
• A revolutionary interpretation of the sites and legends of ancient Greece
• The conflict between “alien” gods and humans
• The true origin of centaurs, the Cyclops, and other “mythical” creatures
• A startling new explanation of the Atlantis legend


14 - The Gods were Astronauts

The Gods were Astronauts: Evidence of the True Identities of the Old ‘Gods’ (2001)

Why do nearly all the world’s major religions share such similar myths and legends? Erich Von Däniken, author of the runaway international bestseller Chariots of the Gods, believes he knows–and the answer is as wondrous and awe-inspiring as it is controversial: the winged angels populating the Bible, Koran, and other religious texts from cultures the world over were in reality extraterrestrials who visited the Earth in ages long past. Fully illustrated with compelling full-color and black-and-white photographs, the book takes us from the jungles of Myanmar, where ancient pagodas point heavenward in the unmistakable shape of spacecraft, to Portugal’s mysterious legend of Fatima and on to the unexplained “landing strips” of Peru and Egypt, offering persuasive evidence that actual living beings inspired the legends that became the basis for many of our religious traditions. Intellectually challenging and provocative, these findings shake the foundations of both science and faith.


15 - History is Wrong

History is Wrong (2007)

Erich von Daniken again shows his flair for revealing the truths that his contemporaries have missed. After closely analyzing hundreds of ancient and apparently unrelated texts, he is now ready to proclaim that
human history is nothing like the world religions claim and he has the proof!

In History Is Wrong, Erich von Daniken takes a closer look at the fascinating Voynich manuscript, which has defied all attempts at decryption since its discovery, and makes some intriguing revelations about the equally incredible Book of Enoch.

Von Daniken also unearths the astounding story of a lost subterranean labyrinth in Ecuador that is said to be home to an extensive library of thousands of gold panels. He supplies evidence that the metal library has links not only to the Book of Enoch but also to the Mormons, who have spent decades searching for
it, believing it to contain the history of their forefathers.

And what about the mysterious lines in the desert of Nazca that resemble landing strips when viewed from the air? Archeologists claim they are ancient procession routes. Think again! cries von Daniken, as he reveals the data that the archeologists never even thought to check.

History Is Wrong will challenge your intellect…and maybe a few long-held beliefs. This is Erich von Daniken’s best book in years!


16 - Twilight of the Gods

Twilight of the Gods: The Mayan Calendar and the Return of the Extraterrestrials (2009)

High up in the Bolivian Andes-4,000 meters above sea level-lies Puma punku, an ancient ruined city that simply could never have been constructed by its Stone Age inhabitants.”Something here really stinks to high heaven,” writes Erich von Daniken.

“In Twilight of the Gods,” says von Daniken, “I document precisely what it was that left the first visitors breathless as they stood before the mighty stone blocks some 400 years ago. I will show you what archeologists discovered hundreds of years ago and demonstrate how much has been destroyed over the centuries. Intentionally.

“I will also prove that Puma punku was not built by any Stone Age people.

“And in December 2012, the gods will return from their long journey and appear again here on Earth. At least that is what the Mayan calendar would have us believe.

“The so-called gods–the extraterrestrials–will come again. We’re headed for a ‘god shock’ of major proportions.

“But doesn’t anyone with half a brain know that interstellar travel is simply impossible because of the sheer distances involved? And that extraterrestrials would never look like us?

“Well, dear readers, I destroy these preconceptions. Systematically. One bit at a time.”

In his own inimitable way, Erich von Daniken picks these preconceptions and prejudices apart with a clarity no other author could manage.

19 - Remnants of the Gods

Remnants of the Gods: A Visual Tour of Alien Influence in Egypt, Spain, France, Turkey, and Italy (vol. 3/5) (2012)

“Erich boldly continues to challenge our understanding of history.” –Philip Coppens, author, The Ancient Alien Question

We live in an age of information. But there are things in our prehistory “about which we do not have the faintest idea,” writes best-selling author Erich von Däniken in his gripping new book, Remnants of the Gods. Stone structures erected by master builders, mysterious underground complexes, geometrically aligned stone circles, the breathtaking pyramids of Egypt–who built them? And, perhaps more importantly, where did these builders obtain such incredible knowledge?

Erich von Däniken shows in detail how whole countries were surveyed thousands of years ago. Hundreds of Stone Age holy places are located at equal distances from one another, forming giant squares and triangles.

How was all of this possible? Classic archaeology provides no answers to these questions. Worse still, it doesn’t even appear to be interested. Are we all threatening to become “camp followers of disinterest,” as Erich asks?

Featuring more than 160 color photos and illustrations, Erich reveals the secrets of “impossible buildings” in Europe and the Mediterranean region, describes “crazy facts,” and relentlessly exposes false doctrines.

Remnants of the Gods will make even strident skeptics reconsider what they think they know of the past.


20 - Impossible Truths

Impossible Truths: Amazing Evidence of Extraterrestrial Contact (vol. 4/5) (2013)

Impossible Truths showcases the classic, provocative von Däniken theories for a new generation. For more than four decades, Erich von Däniken has been elaborating his astounding thesis that the inhabitants of other planets have kept in contact with humanity since the earliest times and that they are still communicating with us today.

In this book he presents new eyewitness proof of extraterrestrial activity, as well as evidence from expert informants that has remained secret until now. He also highlights the findings of new research that he has been able to undertake as previously inaccessible areas have opened up, such as the jungle city of Buritaca in Colombia.

It was once thought that only the ancient Nazca people of Peru scraped gigantic images in the ground. Now, thanks to Erich von Däniken, we know that this is a worldwide phenomenon seen all over the world, from Jordan and Saudi Arabia to Chile and Mexico: immense circles and wheels, mile-wide images that look like dragons or supernatural beings with rays extending from their heads. “When will people finally grasp the global basis of the Nazca phenomenon?” asks von Däniken. He believes these ancient geoglyphs were created as messages to the gods, to signal to the extraterrestrial beings that people had seen with their own eyes moving about the sky.

More than 150 full-colour photographs substantiate von Däniken’s theories and let the reader assess from themselves the stunning visual evidence. These spectacular findings from the world’s bestselling non-fiction author will teach us how to be truly amazed again.

22 - The End of the Silence

The End of the Silence (2014)

Something about our past – the one that took place thousands of years ago – is not right. And members of lodges and the heads of great religions are aware of this. They are keeping their knowledge to themselves. The people are to remain religious and ignorant. But when it is about comparing knowledge and intelligence with ignorance and stupidity, most people will prefer intelligence to ignorance and stupidity. The mentality of a society that does not receive an alternative for its beliefs and its ideology because the monopoly in question does not allow it must fossilize.

At our universities the same nonsense that was taught a hundred years ago is still being taught in Ethnology and Theology. “1000 years’ worth of musty odor under the academic gowns” is what it said on the banners the students were carrying during their demonstrations in 1968. Nothing has changed. And that is what this book is about. Erich von Däniken meticulously lists proven cases of cultural confrontations during which a technically superior civilization collided with a technically inferior civilization. The result was always the same. The technically inferior civilization always classified the other side as being “supernatural.” The effects of the technical devices were regarded as “miracles.” That is what happened last century; that is what happened during the age of discoveries and that is what happened during the Stone Age. That is when extra-terrestrials landed on earth that behaved like ethnologists. They observed a number of societies and disappeared again, promising that they would return some day. The Stone Age people hadn’t understood anything and categorized the foreigners as “gods.” And that is how religions were established.

How could knowledge like that be lost over the millennia? And why is it still being suppressed in our day and age that is so enlightened?

Erich von Däniken makes a clean sweep. He locates and depicts inconsistencies that are about to be forgotten in our vast reservoir of knowledge. This book will show you how to be amazed again.




Who were they?… Why did they come?… What did they leave behind?… Where did they go?… Will they return?…
