Huckster Von Däniken Tries to Convince Jews They are “Part Alien”

erich-von-daniken-nestandard2IT HAS BEEN exactly 50 years since Erich Von Däniken (pictured) claimed in his controversial work Chariots of the Gods that the Bible “proves” ancient man met with aliens, adopting new technologies from extraterrestrials. [Like the Webbs’ Soviet Communism: A New Civilization? — a massive work said to have contained everything about Russia except the truth — Däniken’s work was first published with a question mark in its title, which was triumphantly removed in later editions. — Ed.] Many “Biblical prophecies” are, according to Von Däniken, UFO sightings described in Biblical terms.

Though controversial and much-contested, his theory was enough to sell millions of books in the 1960s and 70s, though sales have dropped dramatically in recent decades. Van Däniken may have found a way to get his name back in the headlines, though: pandering to Jewish egos by asserting that Jews are successful and “chosen” because they have “alien DNA.”

Von Däniken is a compulsive world traveler and has made claims that many ancient sites — the Giza Pyramids, the Moai stone heads of Easter Island, Stonehenge, Pumapunku, and many others — are evidence of alien/human interaction. But, he now says, the real inspiration for his theories “comes from the Bible.”

Raised as a Roman Catholic, he attended the Saint-Michel International Catholic School in Fribourg, Switzerland. Bible studies led him to look towards the heavens, but his conclusions were not those the priests had intended.

As he told Breaking Israel News, “That’s where it all started…I am still a deep believer in God, although I don’t know what God is.”

He claims the Bible is replete with cases of extraterrestrial contact. He cites Enoch, who lived before the great flood (Genesis 5:24). Enoch and the prophet Elijah were the only two people described as being “taken” without dying. In Elijah’s case, he was taken by a “chariot of fire and horses of fire” that “went up to heaven in a whirlwind”. These, Von Däniken explained, were alien abductions.

The title of his first book was based on the prophet Ezekiel’s vision of a celestial chariot. Von Däniken believed the vision the prophet described in the first chapter was actually an extraterrestrial spacecraft. Classical Biblical commentaries say the measurements of Ezekiel’s Temple refer to a future temple.

“The Temple was not a Temple after all,” Von Däniken explained to Breaking Israel News, “Ezekiel was describing the space station.”

According to Von Däniken, the revelation of God at Mount Sinai (Exodus 19), the pivotal event in Jewish history, was the launch of a massive rocket, accompanied by sound and fury, that required all of the gathered people to distance themselves or be vaporized by the massive blast.

Taking paleo-contact a giant step further, his latest theory posits that when the extraterrestrials left the earth thousands of years ago, they didn’t just leave behind pyramids and other perplexing artifacts.

“Jews believe you are the ‘chosen people’ and I believe, yes, you are the chosen people but not in the way you believe,” he told Breaking Israel News. “Many Nobel Prize-winners are Jewish because you have something different in your DNA which comes from the extraterrestrials.”

Von Däniken explained that Jews were chosen, not by God, but by extraterrestrials. Ancient astronauts came to earth and manipulated the DNA of Biblical Israelites to make them and their Jewish offspring more intelligent.

Von Däniken’s theories are contested by numerous scientists and he has been accused of using faulty techniques to draw untenable conclusions.

In the 1970s, there was even a book titled The Lost Tribes from Outer Space written by a Marc Dem. As the saying goes, paper can put up with anything.

I bought and read Chariots of the gods in 1973. And, for awhile I entertained the idea he espoused. But as time passed
I began to see that it was all a load of Bullcookies. Then the tv series ancient aliens rolled around. I watched the series then after several decades of this garbage. I realized that all of it is just to make us puny humans feel small and stupid as in we just could not have been capable of such wondrous achievements. And, the archeological record is beginning to bear out the truth that we are not only capable but we actually did have wonderful achievements hundreds and thousands of years ago.
Great article exposing this charlatan.

I agree with “Noman”. The achievements of some civilisations are staggering. Suggesting that the Great Pyramid, or the Nazca Lines, or Machu Picchu, were built by visitors from “outer space” totally demeans that achievement. Imagine how a savage would feel in the Roman amphitheatre. What was the (Gladiator) movie line? “I did not know Men could build such things”. The Inca built great buildings because of their imperial way of life, where work for state was completed as a form of taxation. The Egyptians had much the same principle, but of course each Pharaoh constructed in order to “make his mark”, to measure his greatness against his predecessors – not just for the good of the land. In Egypt, a clear progression is shown in tomb building – from rock-cut… Read more »

I wonder why Von Däniken did not dare speculate anything about the achievements of the Ancient Greeks. I mean, yes I am biased but last time I checked, and I check often, no one has claimed anything else as more magnificent, spectacular and above all timeless. Btw, there is no such thing as “Roman Amphitheatre”. The Romans did not built amphitheatres because they had no use for it. Once they conquered the Greeks and saw their amphitheatres they copied it but not for theatrical presentations but gladiator games. There is some difference you know.

Let’s not hate the guy for making an absurd statement about Jewish intelligence. After all, he has brought to light numerous bona fide archaeological discoveries including Egypt’s great pyramids that according to Robert M. Schoch (professor of Natural Sciences at the College of General Studies, Boston University) may be at least 100,000 years old.

The fact is that there appears to be on this earth a gang of filthy parasitic scoundrels (otherwise known as Cherubim) that have been mandated to prevent the rest of humanity from progressing to the next evolutionary spiritual level.
