Ao saber mais sobre o problema, percebo que me faltou a gasolina. Basta estudar o Sol. E como consegue que as pessoas acreditem nele? E fez muito dinheiro. O Daniken, ao menos, foi original. Nada mais.

Do centuries-old legends of gods and heroes tell of space travelers who came to earth from distant parts of the Cosmos? Are some of the ruins of antiquity remnants of great airfields, the favored landing sites of extraterrestrial craft? The popularity of such a sensational theory should not be surprising.
Immanuel Velikovsky created a similar stir almost twenty-five years ago with the publication of his "Worlds in Collision", suggesting that the present state of the solar system can be explained by a series of spectacular cataclysms among the planets. Sensational hypotheses such as these generate such levels of interest that they tend to become self-sustaining, quite apart from the question of whether they are true.
Established science has always shied away from such remarkable claims. On page 9, Von Daniken serves up a "basic rocket equation," derived by one Professor Ackeret, purporting to show how time slows down for space travelers who zip along at velocities near the speed of light. Every equation is a mathematical statement of the equality of two quantities: this equals that.
But his "equation" contains no equal sign, and hence it cannot be a real equation; it must be intended as window dressing, since it serves no legitimate mathematical purpose.
Yet that is not the only absurdity in this non-equation. A term in the denominator is multiplied by a very strange constant: ONE! Did Professor Ackeret think that multiplication by one was a necessary step in his calculations?
Von Daniken himself must have known better, as even schoolchildren learn that any number times one equals itself! There are, of course, many legitimate equations which deal with this aspect of the relativity of time. Why then has Von Daniken selected such an obvious humbug to support his "scientific " claims? What is the history of our earth-moon system? It finally disintegrated and was replaced by the moon.
Supposedly this message, dating back 27, years, tells of how this satellite emeritus made revolutions around the earth a year, which was then only days. Are we expected to believe that during the great Ice Ages the earth was some twenty million miles closer to the sun than it is today?
How could a satellite slowly spiraling earthward pull both earth and satellite farther away from the sun? Where are the fragments of this disintegrated moon, and where did our current moon come from? Von Daniken gives no answers. On ancient Egyptian astronomy: " If Sirius appeared on the horizon at dawn at the same time as the Nile flood, it was pure coincidence Sirius, he neglects to mention, is the brightest star in the sky.
His claim that Sirius was hardly visible at all to the Egyptians is simply false. Sirius, in fact, is visible from anywhere on earth except the extreme North Polar region, and observers in Egypt see that star higher in the sky than we do here in the northern United States, where it dominates the sky on crisp winter evenings.
There is no dark mystery behind the development of the Sirius- based calendar in Egypt. The priests there noticed a simple regularity: each year, when that brilliant star first became visible in the morning sky, the Nile flood began.
Does this not prove that the Egyptians had contact with a race of space travelers? Without going into too much detail, let us observe that the famous number Pi is what is called a "dimensionless constant": it is a pure number, with which no units of measure are associated.
However, the ratio of an area to height is not dimensionless, hence such a ratio cannot yield Pi. By choosing our units carefully, we can obtain the number 3. If we measure the same pyramid, Von Daniken style, in inches, feet, and yards, we will obtain three different ratios. Choose your own units, and the ratio can be made to equal any number at all!
Von Daniken writes that the pyramid of Cheops "has inspired hundreds of crazy and untenable theories". Not satisfied with this collection, he has given us one more. More evidence of the ancient Visitors: "The Mayas were intelligent; they had a highly developed culture.
They left behind not only a fabulous calendar but also incredible calculations. They knew the Venusian year of days. He conveniently forgets to tell us that this day period is not the true Venusian year, which is days. Instead it is the apparent Venusian cycle as seen by an earth-based observer, which is precisely what we should expect the ancient Mayas to record by simply counting days, without any extraterrestrial insight.
On the other hand, if they had recorded the true Venusian year of days, which implies a knowledge of the Copernican sun-centered system of astronomy, that would have been a bit more remarkable. In these few short pages I have scarcely begun a list of the inaccuracies and half-truths to be found in Chariots of the Gods?. But a thousand-page refutation of a hundred-page book would hardly make good reading. Sensationalist theories have always attracted more readers than refutations of the same.
Looking into his past, Ref: New York Times Book Review , we should not be too surprised to find that his rather broad criterion of truthfulness has, at times, brought him into conflict with the law.
A court in his native Switzerland found Von Daniken guilty of embezzlement, forgery, and fraud, sentencing him to three and a half years in prison. While operating a Swiss hotel. It was during this stay as a guest of the Swiss government that he wrote his second book, Gods from Outer Space, now also a best seller. Once a liar, however, does not infallibly prove him always a liar. The followers of famous psychics are never shaken when their leader is caught cheating: they only cheat on bad days!
In fact, we have in support of these theories one bona fide, highly reliable eyewitness who saw these creatures disembark who can now describe it: none other than Erich Von Daniken himself! He revealed how he can now leave his body at will, transcending all concepts of space and time. Page numbers refer to Bantam edition. March 31 , National Enquirer, March 17,
