Are the gods and angels of the Old Testament really extraterrestrial beings? Erich von Däniken examines passages from the Bible to prove that the gods and angels of the Old Testament were really beings who descended from heaven to create life on Earth and shape human destiny. According to Däniken, the surviving scriptures have been mistranslated, all along. What we once called God and the angels, were really extraterrestrial beings conducting genetic tests and social engineering for their own benefits. What befell human civilization from these machinations was documented as accounts of the Ark of the Covenant and Ezekiel’s extraordinary journey in an alien spacecraft to a spaceport in another time.
