Publisher's Summary

Erich von Daniken has exhaustively researched and analyzed the great world religions, their myths and belief structures, in an effort to find an answer to a question that has fascinated humans for millennia: who, or what, were the Gods described in ancient stories? His extraordinary conclusion? The Gods were not metaphysical beings born of humanity's overactive imagination, but extraterrestrials who left traces of their presence everywhere on Earth. The book includes:

The suggestion, based on a thorough examination of ancient texts, that alien beings employed high-tech vehicles in epic aerial battles
Compelling evidence that the Gods used awesome weapons of mass annihilation, both against themselves and humankind
A radical new interpretation of evolution on Earth that contradicts both established religions and modern science
