History is Wrong?
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.
Mr Daniken is praiseworthy for daring to think outside the dominant archaeological paradigm; however, there are other options to explain the mysteries he deals with, such as the Lines of Nazca. We do not need aliens when we provide boats to the Megalith Builders. Not so famous as the Lines of Nazca, but much more ancient, the neighboring Lines of Palpa can provide the clue to solve the mystery. I am working to demonstrate that these trapezoids were pointers to key sites of Europe and Egypt. The explanation is relatively simple, based on astronomic considerations, as I will explain soon at http://onemysteryless.wordpress.com
Von Daniken was convicted of fraud and sent to jail. While in jail he published his second book. The most amazing thing about it is that he supposedly did all his original on location research from his jail cell. He has published fiction under the guise of fact and has bilked many a person out of their money.
I have not read enough Von Daniken to be able to argue intelligently for or against his claims. I do think he has raised an interesting alternate view to the accepted though. If you do not pause and give a respectable pause and thought to his theories you are cheating yourself. We should never blindly accept what anyone says is fact. We should continually research and ask questions. Find out for yourself. Don't just take what someone says as the truth.
