Erich von Däniken
1 Season, 29 Episodes
Gaia is proud to present the legend and world-famous author, Erich von Däniken, in this exciting new series: "The Gods were Astronauts," where he presents his life’s work in German, with English subtitles.
Von Däniken convincingly suggests that intelligent supernatural influences have influenced early human cultures and thus made the "ancient astronaut" hypotheses popular. He takes us beyond the myths and legends which have influenced our view of history.
From the buildings of the Egyptian pyramids and Stonehenge to the ancient works of art and written representations of astronauts and flying technologies, Erich von Däniken explains that the origin of religions is nothing more than depictions of contact with alien beings. He offers explanations from the Bible and the Indian Vedas to substantiate his ideas. Erich von Däniken shows us a different view of the world in "The Gods Were Astronauts" and thus offers us a fascinating perspective on the monuments of the past, which has defined our history.
