 Erich von Däniken`s topics of the speech series

UNSOLVED MYSTERIES OF THE PAST

The inscriptions on the Temple of Edfu/Egypt and it`s comparisons with the 2nd Book of the Kings in the Bible – The newest discoveries inside the great pyramid. Sumerologist translates a 4300 Year old Sumerian text and finds proofs for an extra-terrestrial contact. Was there a war in heaven?

The mysterious sarcophagus of Sechemhet of the 3rd dynasty. Did extra-terrestrials have sex with humans? Why should ET`s look similar to us? Are we just the offspring of an extra-terrestrial species? Did the gods create the humans „according to their own image»? – Which gods? And what about the distances between the stars – is it possible to travel in the universe?

 The desert in Nazca, Peru, with it`s lines and pictures is not alone anymore. Similar designs were found in other continents. And all-over the humans created gigantic pictures of such over dimensional size, that they can be seen only from the air.  Erich von Däniken shows pictures taken over Nazca, which were never published. Incredible material! Eye-openers for every sceptic. And of course, the designs on earth have to do with old writings.

 The tomb stone of Palenque, Mexico, was always interpreted in an classical archaeological manner. Now the two best epigraphs (translators) of the Mayan writings, the professors Steward and Steward (Father and son) present a new translation. Pacal, the 2nd last ruler of Palenque, is really flying out to the universe. And everything is linked to the flying <Vimanas> in ancient India, the winged Gods in ancient Egypt or the biblical descriptions about their chariots of the gods.

 What is the <Serapheum> under the desert of Sakkara?  What was really inside the gigantic Sarcophaguses, found in the <Serapheum>? Where there living chimaeras in ancient Egypt, as Maneto and other historians of the antiquity says? Which gods manipulated the DNA of some animals? And why?

 Was Cheops, the Pharao of the IV. Dynasty, the Father of the great pyramid? Where does the name <Cheops> come from? Some old documents suggest, the true builder of the great pyramid was a king with the name of <Saurid>, but <Saurid> is the same figure, which the Hebrew call <Enoch>. He was the 7th patriarch before the great flood and he was in very close contact with extra-terrestrials, which he called „guardians of the sky“. Enoch is the main witness oft the past. He even quotes the names of his extra-terrestrial teachers. Will we find the missing books of Enoch somewhere in the great pyramid? 

 Erich von Däniken shows the newest discoveries inside and under the pyramid. With incredible computer animations the audience will be transported into a world thousands of years in the past. Erich debunks the so called <vision> of the biblical Prophet Ezechiel and prove clearly, what happened to Ezechiel in reality.

 And the gods of antiquity will return. This will be the shock for mankind. The gods left many signs in the past. But our society is unwilling to see them.

 What happened 1917 in Fatima, Portugal? Why are even the Popes not telling the truth concerning Fatima?

 Erich von Däniken has 200`000 Pictures of every mysterious place in his archives. He has publised 39 books concerning the visit of ET`s in the deep past of mankind. Since his first book CHARIOTS OF THE GODS in 1968, Erich von Däniken has become the number one in his field. And he makes it absolutely clear: This planet was visited by ET`s in the past. Our stone age ancestors looked at these visitors as “the gods“. A mistake – which created mythologies and religions.

BIOGRAPHY

Biography of Erich von Däniken

Erich von Däniken April 14, 1935 Zofingen, Switzerland

During his formative years at the renowned Collège St-Michel in Fribourg, Switzerland, Erich von Däniken immersed himself in ancient holy writings and unsolved archaeological puzzles. As a young gastronome, he began writing topic-related articles before eventually authoring his international best seller Chariots of the Gods. Erich von Däniken has held countless lectures and discussions at public forums and educational institutions. His 40 books have sold over 72 million copies and have been translated into 32 languages.

 His bestselling books, Chariots of the Gods and Mysteries of the Gods have inspired two documentary films. The Baden-Baden-based television station Sudwestrundfunk filmed a three-part documentary on Erich von Däniken’s works.

 In 1993, Erich von Däniken moderated a 25-part television series on SAT-I, Germans biggest TV-Station. Its success kept it in broadcast twice a month for a whole year.

 In 1996, the US television network ABC produced a $1.2 million dollar documentary with Erich von Däniken. The German station RTL broadcast the film throughout Europe that the same year. With 4.57 million viewers, the show reached the highest audience rating on every channel. In total, 69% of the viewers were under 50 years of age. Even the rerun event on May 1, 1997 attracted 3.17 million viewers.

 The world’s largest public broadcaster, ARD, produced a 1998 documentary about Erich von Däniken and in February of 2001, the British television station Twenty-Twenty also made a biography about Erich von Däniken. It was first broadcast on Channel 4 and has since travelled throughout the world. In 2009, the US television channel History began a groundbreaking series about Erich von Däniken’s hypotheses entitled Ancient Aliens. The series received the highest audience rating History has ever received. This success launched continued filming and by March of 2018, this series will boast a total of 150 shows while running in many languages throughout the world.

Honours

Erich von Däniken has received many honours throughout the years. Including an honorary doctorate (Dr.h.c.) from the University of Bolivia (1975), as well as honorary citizenship from the city of Nazca, which gained notoriety through its mysterious lines and carvings. In the fall of 1987, he became an honorary member of the Cordon bleu du Saint-Esprit order together with the German astronaut Ulf Merbold. Erich von Däniken received the Premio Lourenço Filho in gold and platinum in Brazil. (Lurenço Filho was a Brazilian educator comparable to the Swiss Heinrich Pestalozzi).

 In 2004, the World Explorer’s Club awarded Erich von Däniken with the World Explorer Prize. The ceremony was held at the University of Lodz in Poland.

 On April 8, 2013, the Brazilian metropolis of Curitba honoured Erich von Däniken for his entire body of work on unsolved mysteries from the past.

 And the science...

Year after year, Erich von Däniken’s ideas gain more momentum in scientific circles. For example, the Nobel Prize holder Francis Crick published a book, Life Itself (Piper Verlag), where he states “Life on earth began in the form of micro-organisms that were sent into space towards Earth by a higher civilisation billions of years ago with an unmanned rocket.”

 Together with the mathematics genius Nalin Chandra Wickramasinghe, the world-famous British astrophysicist Sir Fred Hoyle published the work Evolution from Space (Ullstein-Verlag), where the scientists support the idea that life was not created on earth and Darwinian theories should be amended. In reality, mutations came from intelligent lifeforms from space. Erich von Däniken initially proposed these same ideas in his 1977 work According to the Evidence (Chapter 5).

 In the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, No. 36, Dr. Robert A. Freitas from the Xenology Research Institute (Sacramento, California) suggested a new research project by the name of SETA. In contrast to the existing project SETI (Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence), SETA (Search for Extra-terrestrial Artefacts) would research evidence of extra-terrestrials in our solar system. This is the precisely what Erich von Däniken has done for 50 years.

 The Russian scientist Dr. Vladimir V. Rubtsov suggested in 1980 at a symposium in Kaliga that a new branch of science by the name of Palaeovisitology be created. This new field describes extra-terrestrial visits in geological and prehistoric times.

 At the 33rd conference of the International Astronautical Federation, held in Paris from September 27 to October 2, 1982, Dr. Michael Papagiannis, astronomer at the Boston University, suggested searching for traces of extraterrestrial intelligence in the asteroid belt: “We would look pretty stupid to future generations if we would continue to search for extra-terrestrial civilisations on far-distant stars while the answer could be found here directly in our solar system.”

 In 1985, the first scientific anthology about Erich von Däniken’s topics appeared (Aus Den Tiefen Des Alles - From the Depths of Space - Grabert/Hohenrain-Verlag). The following scientists provided contributions for this:

 -Dr. Luis Navia, Philosophy Professor at the New York Institute of Technology, New York, USA

-Dr. Philip A. Ianna, Astronomy Professor at the University of Virginia, USA

-Dr. Harry O. Ruppe, Aerospace Engineering Professor at the Technical University Munich

-Prof. Dr. Sir Fred Hoyle, Astrophysics Professor, Great Britain

-Dr. Francis H.C. Crick, Nobel Prize holder and Microbiology Professor, San Diego

-Dr. Dileep Kumar Kanjilal, Sanskrit Professor at the Calcutta Sanskrit College, Calcutta, India

 In the meantime, hundreds of book titles about Erich von Däniken’s ideas exist throughout the world by a multitude of authors. Countless television series and films are based on his thoughts, such as Stargate and Prometheus.

 In general it can be concluded that despite criticism from conservative chairs, the science community is warming up to Erich von Däniken’s ideas more and more. Erich von Däniken is already no longer capable of fulfilling the countless requests for lectures and discussions.

 That is why Erich von Däniken holds more and more lectures in closed societies like the Lions, the Kiwanis, the Rotarians, international corporations, banks and lodges. The Masonic Grand Lodge Grande Oriente Do Parana honoured Erich von Däniken in April of 2013 for his courageous life’s work in the city of Curitiba/Brazil.

 Erich von Däniken is a member of the Swiss Pen-Club and the Swiss Writer's Guild. He is a co-founder of the association for Archaeology, Astronautics and SETI (AAS), a non-profit association that deals with his topics. He also founded the Mystery Park in Interlaken, Switzerland and wrote all the texts for it. (Today: Jungfrau-Park).

 In June 2018 EvD was the Special-Guest at the AlienCon in Pasadena, USA. This gigantic 3-day-convention was produced by the US History Channel. As „Godfather of Ancient Alien Theory“ Erich von Däniken was welcomed by 24 000 fans with Standing Ovations.

 Voices from the science world about Erich von Däniken's theories:

 "Erich von Däniken's hypothesis will have an increasing effect on society, science, literature and art. Furthermore, he contributes to the solution to terrestrial problems. The search for extraterrestrial intelligence is a concern that affects all of humanity."(Dr. Vladimir Avinsky, Geologist, Kuibyschew, Russia)

"This theory throws more light on the gathered documents about early human history than some other explanatory hypotheses. With this you have an extraordinary tool in your hands and you can detect the common theme throughout the confusing labyrinth of human development on this planet."(Dr. Luis E. Navia, Professor for Philosophy, New York Institute of Technology)

 "It is possible that extraterrestrials visited our home planet in the past."(Dr. Harry O. Ruppe, Professor for Aerospace Technology, TU Munich)

"Throughout the entire history of the Earth and life up to the time of historical records, the traces of extraterrestrial intelligence on our planet are clear.  It is a great task to detect the true backgrounds of countless historical puzzles and to reconsider the early history of humanity." (Dr. Johannes Fiebag [+], Geologist, Bad Neustadt, Germany)

 "Old Indian texts clearly prove that the Earth was visited and influenced by extraterrestrials in the distant past.

(Prof. Dr. Dileep Kumar Kanjilal, Professor for Sanskrit and Indology at the Sancrit College, Calcutta, India )
