Von Daniken’s Mistake
by Doug Yurchey
The following statement goes out to not only Erich of ‘Ancient
Astronauts’ fame…but to David Hatcher Childress, Michael Cremo,
Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, George Noory, all the evolutionists and
believers in Von Daniken’s theory of alien contact long ago.
Recently aired on the History Channel was a 2-hour, 2009,
documentary called ‘Ancient Aliens.’ The menu blurb read: ‘Whether
aliens influenced mankind in ancient times.’ Erich, who did not look
his age, was interviewed along with the lineup mentioned above.
This writer (Yurchey), which once strongly embraced the idea that
aliens account for the fantastic enigmas and grand achievements in
prehistory, realized that the true answer was even more incredible.
The mistake made by proponents of the ‘Ancient Astronaut’ hypothesis
is they diminish the phenomenal stonework created by the human race
with advanced equipment. A. A. theorists denigrate what our
ancestors achieved by unbelievable, technical means.
Von Daniken must maintain early humankind was primitive and that
archeology books are ‘right on the money’ for his viewpoint to ring
true. If we were primitive during the so-called ‘Stone Age,’ then
the construction of pyramids; cutting and transporting huge
monoliths would be impossible. We would need ‘help’ and
‘assistance.’ Since so many pyramids and alignments of great
megaliths indicate/incorporate vast astronomical knowledge, then it
is sensible that we have been visited in the past by
Certainly, we have been visited in the past by aliens. The
question is, ‘Where do you place the state of prehistoric humans?’
Did we need help and assistance? The answer is, ‘Not if WE, us,
humans were super-advanced during the Stone Age or the time of
pyramid building.’ Aliens are not necessary to explain the
extraordinary wonders of the past if people lived in high-tech
societies and traditional history erred. Our ancestors lived and
thrived in high-tech societies during numerous ages, over long
epochs of time. We can clearly trace (in stone ruins to earthen
mounds) their passing as devolution and retrograde technology. But
once, in the beginning of humankind, was magnificent Atlantis.
The missing element in Von Daniken’s philosophy is Atlantis.
Atlantis is the source of the early and seemingly otherworldly,
advanced technology. Atlantean knowledge, passed down to the
Pre-Egyptians and Pre-Incas, accounts for the pyramid building and
transport of super megaliths. Atlantis, an ultra-human colony,
explains many similarities between first cultures across the ocean.
It was not aliens, Erich…it was our ancestors.
[This writer can speak with confidence as I announce the completion of the manuscript ‘We Are Fallen Gods’ - ‘How the work of Nikola Tesla destroys Darwin Evolution and changes the Human Race into gods.’ The conclusions are the result of 35 years studying Atlantis and Tesla. Read this writer’s ‘Atlantis Power Grid’ article to discover a connection between Stonehenge, Easter Island , the Great Pyramid, etc; that form a World Grid in prehistoric times. The world construction was created by HUMANS as each grid-point became a Cradle of Civilization].
In the documentary, Von Daniken presented an onslaught of
evidence showing what could only be the work of supermen and
superwomen from some distant past. But, each time the stonework at
Tiahuanaco; Teotihuacan ; Puma Punku; Peri Reis maps or the Bagdad
Battery was mentioned…he said it was the result of
‘EXTRATERRESTRIALS.’ How does the Bagdad battery or the Antikythera
Machine prove extraterrestrials? The mistake is to assume our
ancestors incapable of such technical wonders. EVD is to be credited
for his research, findings and 45 years (like a relentless
juggernaut) of pushing the alien agenda. But, Von Daniken is wrong
in the respect that every shred of ancient miracle is really a true
testament of the high state of humans in prehistoric times.
When Erich points to aliens as the answer, he should be pointing
to the greatness of early HUMANS. Darwin Evolution is 200 years old
and has already been shown to be an obsolete concept. The above list
of researchers and writers as well as many others believe our
ancestors were primitives. (This writer told George Noory on ‘Coast
to Coast’ that our ancestors, on their own, had high-tech. He did
not buy it and soon yanked me off the radio show).
Ancient Astronaut theorists point to items like the amazing
carving at Palenque as evidence of the ‘alien’ theory. Erich will
demonstrate stone reliefs of Egyptians carrying what could only be
light bulbs. Wait a minute; these were HUMANS; the Mayan and
Egyptian figures are our early ancestors. They were people, not
aliens. The Indians did not fly back to their alien planet; they
degenerated into the next/lesser stage of human over much time.
Where are the depictions of 3-headed, 5-eyed creatures that are (you
know) ALIEN? The colossal constructions of pyramids and knowledge
within them could easily have been manufactured by literal supermen
and superwomen, our ancestors.
On prehistoric cave walls, on numerous continents, are paintings
of ‘round-heads.’ The humanoid figures also seem to employ modern
equipment. EVD suggested these are ‘extraterrestrials’ in spacesuits
when they could also be humans in radiation suits testing a
devastated, nuked area.
The key is to take everything Von Daniken reports and apply it to
the prehistoric HUMANS. It is proof, not of aliens, but of the
greatness of our human heritage; evidence of a long, lost, technical
paradise on Earth; an Atlantean utopia; an Eden and what humans can
achieve at their best! (Biblical angels were human).
The documentary assumed the truth was either Von Daniken’s
viewpoint or on the side of the skeptics and debunkers. The answer,
to account for fantastic anomalies (EVD material), was either ALIENS
or ‘no aliens.’ Either Erich was correct or his skeptical critics.
Those two alternatives cannot be the only candidates. We must allow
for the possibility of HUMAN HIGH-TECH in the distant past; a New
Genesis where humans needed no aid from the heavens to do what they
The oddity is EVD knows of the large-brained Cro-Magnons. He has
shown us the ‘impossible’ brain operations (holes) in skulls
discovered at Cuzco . These were Cro-Magnon, our large-brained
ancestors. Yet, Mr. Von Daniken fails to make the connection. The
skulls were humans and not aliens. We should not run to the ‘alien’
explanation when the evidence suggests a grander form of human.
Archeologists have a large problem on their hands. How can they
explain the Von Daniken material? How do traditionalists or
conservative archeologists account for the massive, transported,
stone blocks as well as the extraordinary (astronomical and
geophysical) knowledge within the constructions of our ancestors?
First, they inform us that the stonework is not so extraordinary;
the buildings were basically temples, observatories, tombs and idols
to deities. Second, they educate us that the anomalies of the past
are not that old. Historians and those of traditional sciences teach
us that Mayas lived a few hundred years ago; Incas were a few
hundred years earlier; Cahokia is 200 years old and the Great
Pyramid is a tomb built a few thousand years ago. The ruins are so
extraordinary that even placing their origin dates at hundreds of
years old, rather than thousands, also does not work and makes no
None of the accepted dates are true for those civilizations.
Nothing can be dated for certain. Even interpretations of Indian
(carved) number systems should also be questioned. ‘Dating’ is done
by references from previous books or first seeing the current
landscape of ‘what is accepted by science.’ Then, dates are given.
Dates are not arrived at by a ‘tried and true’ method of accurately
dating something. They are ‘guesses’ based upon earlier and even
more misguided guesses.
The Great Pyramid, Tiahuanaco , Puma Punku, Pre-Incan/Andean
fortresses have been referred to and described by the ‘impossible’
adjective. They are only impossible because of misinterpretations by
our traditional educators. By conservative, conventional standards
of only having primitive techniques…the major pyramids and other
fantastic structures should absolutely not exist. The physics
required, the technology required, the knowledge and ability to
execute on such a grand scale, was not supposed to exist AT THAT
TIME! The fact is the mega-abilities of our ancestors do not exist
at the present time! We will only be able to build on that
incredible scale in the very far future.
The super constructions or existence of advanced knowledge in the
past is a true paradox. But it is only a paradox if you are a part
of the majority; believe in a form of Darwinism and see our
ancestors as primitives. If readers are inclined to accept the usual
status quo without question, then they have to greatly diminish our
TIME OF GODS (Atlantis) and also remain blind to the exceptional age
of prehistoric ruins. Traditionalists cannot fit into their brains
or philosophy that an extremely ancient item can be super advanced.
‘They’ think sophisticated technology did not exist way back in the
Stone Age. They are wrong. It makes more sense putting a mystery
many thousands of years old than hundreds. Truth is…super-technology
existed on Earth a long, long time ago.
Maybe our entire view of the past through the eyes of
mainstreamers needs a complete overhaul? Instead of labeling an
anachronistic puzzle as something simple as ‘tombs’ or ‘temples,’ we
should attempt to see its modernism. Rather that saying, ‘Oh, that’s
nothing, primitive people were remarkable back then,’ we should
really understand that they were far better and far greater than us
at the present time.
Where do you place a futuristic wonder found to exist in the
distant past? Erich Von Daniken’s philosophy is misplaced. He has
compiled an enormous mountain of mysteries that rub the
traditionalists the wrong way. The anomalies are only paradoxes and
‘ancient mysteries’ if you regard our ancestors as primitives.
DON’T; they (we) were once extraordinary supermen and superwomen
using large portions of our brain. All of the physical evidence and
lost times say so and lead us to a very startling conclusion:
We were once gods and have lost the high-tech.
