Ages ago, the gods not only walked among us, but as Erich von Däniken explains, they flew through the air, and beyond, in great flying machines. Whenever the gods descended from the sky, they brought advanced teachings in calendrics, mathematics and astronomy. Upon the site of such a landing, a temple was often built, topped with a depiction of a Vimana. When we examine similarities of temples found in India and Central America, we begin to see the extent of the extraterrestrials’ influence in ancient times. Perhaps these stories are not just mythological tales and allegories, but depictions of extraterrestrial beings interacting with ancient civilizations.
