From Erich Von Daniken, author of the best selling Chariots of the Gods, comes Signs of the Gods, with startling new evidence that extraterrestrial beings have indeed shaped our history.
"If we were successful in our search for the Ark of the Covenant..., we should at least know that:
1. extraterrestrial forms of life, superior to us, exist;
2. extraterrestrial visited earth;
3. they guided groups of inhabitants of the earth in a specific direction;
4. the oldest rules for the communal life of intelligent beings came from extraterrestrials;
5. we should get to know the ancient technology of the extraterrestrials, their metallurgical skills, in short, their state of knowledge...
You don't have to tell me the skepticism that boils up as soon as an apparently Utopian idea is even mentioned. But to be fair, people should not always be asking me for visible proof of the presence of extraterrestrials, if they are not prepared to make the slightest attempt to follow up the hints that do exsist."
