    1. اريك فون دانيكن محقق و نويسنده ای است كه هزينه های زيادی را متحمل مي شود تا به رازهايی در مورد گذشته بشر دست يابدكليسا و دانشمندانی او را به سخره گرفتند و عقايدش را نوعي تخيل بچه گانه دانستند ولی اين محقق سمج دست از تلاش نكشيد و توانست با چاپ چندين كتاب نظريه اش را به جهان نشان د [...]

    2. Däniken must have won some mighty awards for this one, right? Right?I have to admit that it was seriously entertaining though, mostly in imagining who it was who played the practical joke on Däniken each time he sticks his neck out on an imagined 'fact'. Just to sum up the book: how can anyone imagine a concept like Time Travel without having experienced/seen it? Surely Victorian England was visited and ruled by the Time Lords who then vanished. leaving us to roil in our longing stories. Peopl [...]

    3. I read Erich von Denizen's Chariots of the Gods many many years ago (I borrowed it from my college roommate) and even giving this book one star, is basically (in my opinion) one star too many. Aside from the fact that the information presented is at best wildly speculative and weirdly imaginative, Chariots of the Gods also has a to me profoundly anti-humanistic (and even perhaps borderline racist) feel to it. To me, it has always seemed as though the author, as though Erich von Däniken simply c [...]

    4. تصویر فوق مربوط به مقبره ی "پاکال" حاکم مایایی است، تمدن بزرگ فراموش شده ای در امریکای جنوبی. این لوحه با قدمتی دو هزار و ششصد ساله، طرح بسیار غریبی را نشان می دهد که بسیاری از باستان شناسان را دچار حیرت و سر در گمی کرده است. این تصویر که بنا به عقیده ی عمومی یکی از تجربه های "مذهب [...]

    5. brilliant psychedelic wonderous book.even if you dont believe a word of it.if you enjoy it there is a book called 'the spaceships of ezekiel', by j.f. blumrich (a NASA engineer), in response to daniken. "for me, an engineer who began his career in aircraft desgin in 1934, and who was working on large rockets and spacecraft, such books provide wonderful entertainment, and no more; they discribe exciting events that occured at times and in places that cannot be checked. so, when the "daniken" arri [...]

    6. ‎دوستانِ گرانقدر، نوشتن و نقد از این کتاب هم دشوار است و هم به نوعی تکراری‎بهتر این است که این نوع کتاب ها را علمی و تخیلی، قلمداد کنیم چراکه نویسنده در قسمتهایی از کتاب مانندِ صفحۀ 183 الی 190 ، تکیه بر داستانِ موهوم و تخیلی آدم و حوا و نوح و پسرانش دارد و برایِ توضیح در مورد شرمِ [...]

    7. 3.5 Stars I think this sums up the book Don't misinterpret my rating. I gave it 3.5 stars based on entertainment value alone. To sum of the belief the author, in the past, aliens visited pre homo sapien man, bred with the women and came back later to check up on us and breed a bit more.The author attempts to prove his theory that aliens visited ancient man by stating repeatedly that ancient man could not have accomplished many of the wondrous things they have been credited with or have obtained, [...]

    8. Erinnerungen an die Zukunft = Chariots of The Gods, Erich von Däniken Chariots of the Gods? Unsolved Mysteries of the Past (German: Erinnerungen an die Zukunft: Ungelöste Rätsel der Vergangenheit; in English, Memories of the Future: Unsolved Mysteries of the Past) is a book authored in 1968 by Erich von Däniken. It involves the hypothesis that the technologies and religions of many ancient civilizations were given to them by ancient astronauts who were welcomed as gods. تاریخ نخستی [...]

    9. I am not ashamed to say that there was a time when I took Erich von Däniken seriously (now, stop the sniggering, it's not funny!). Maybe it was a side-effect of my mother's crazy theory, which she narrated to me again and again, that the Pushpaka Vimana in the epic Ramayana was a real aeroplane; and the sights described as Rama, Lakshmana and Sita flew back to Ayodhya from Sri Lanka was really written from first hand accounts. Well, you must admit it was a really pretty fantasy.Now here was a g [...]

    10. I think the quick answer to this is “Probably not”. Coming at this from the background of astrophysics I can see enough misrepresentation of facts, falsities and misconceptions within his description of basic physics to lose trust in the author. There were some terrible errors in this book. The thing that had me shaking my head in amusement was when the author tried to draw some deep meaning about how these certain temples are connected to the length of the year on Venus and then get that fi [...]

    11. Baseless, factless, and filled with ridiculous presumptions. It's amazing that with arguments to poorly presented that this book seemed to have such an affect on American culture in the early 70's. It's simply a get-rich-quick scheme from a Swiss ex-con that paid out good. It fed upon people's need to feel that we come from something "out there." Be that out there from a god or from aliens it's really all the same. von Daeniken just gives another "Intelligent Design" myth.I give it one star for [...]

    12. This is pseudo-science and story telling at its very best. This best selling book was probably the water shed moment in the proliferation of conspiracy theories and other pseudo-scientific stuff in the popular literature. And one can see why. To be fair, the author does know how to spin a yarn. It is an enjoyable read, fast paced, if you consider it more as a fiction novel and don't take it seriously. But the disturbing fact is the sheer confidence of the author in his most ridiculous and logic- [...]

    13. WHERE DO I BEGIN? THE FACT THAT THIS BOOK IS A 7-MILLION-COPY BESTSELLER REALLY SAYS EVERYTHING. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INTERESTED IN AND FASCINATED BY ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS,TECHNOLOGIES,AND RELIGIONS. I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS REGARDING EXTRATERRESTRIAL EXISTENCE AND VISITATION TO OUR EARTH. I AM A BELIEVER AND AS A TOPIC THAT HAS NOT BEEN WIDELY DISCUSSED OR TAKEN SERIOUSLY BY THE EVERYDAY HUMAN BEING IT IS ENCOURAGING TO KNOW THAT I AM NOT ALONE IN MY WONDER,BELIEF,AND INTEREST. ERICH VON DANIKEN [...]

    14. ارابهٔ خدایان، نخستین کتاب اریک فون دنیکن ، منتشر شده در سال ۱۹۶۸ است.تلاش نگارنده در این کتاب بر این است که به رازهای دنیای باستان پی ببرد و تاثیر نیروهای فرا زمینی (خدایان) را بر زندگی بشر کشف کند. "او معتقد است که در گذشته‌های بسیار دور، فضانوردانی از سیارات دیگر به ملاقات اج [...]

    15. I think Chariots of the Gods was a wonderful and very informative book. Honestly, I have a lot more respect for Erich von Daniken than I do bloats like the so-called "genius" Stephen Hawking. At least Erich traveled to all of these destinations, done hands-on thorough research, and has proof of all of his claims. What I like most about Erich and his books is that instead of trying to disprove ancient "mythology" (quotations are necessary because technically it is not mythology, but very old reli [...]

    16. In one group which some of my friends belong to, they're having a discussion of the ethics of giving a book a one-star rating with no explanatory review; one person likened the practice to a drive-by shooting. I could see her point; but in my case, on the rare occasions I've done it, it's been with nonfiction books read in the past that I didn't have leisure to review, but didn't want people who might browse my shelves to think I agreed with or endorsed, just because I'd read them. This book is [...]

    17. Let me start of by saying that I do not accept this as the truth, however the some of ideas are not as far-fetched as they might seem at first. One reason I love the ancient astronaut theory is because it brings light to all the thing archaeology conveniently "overlooks". When I was in my archaeology/anthropology classes and learned about the great wonders of out past surprisingly none of the "unexplainable" stuff was ever mentioned. Which is part of the reason I know look at my once favorite fi [...]

    18. Perhaps the only good thing that has come up from this book is science fiction inspired by it. Horrible distortion of history and misinterpretation of events. A total waste of time.

    19. از متن کتاب: «اصل مثبت درباره‌ی کسی که شک می‌کند این است که او همه‌ی امکانات را ممکن فرض می‌کند.»اصلا باهاش حال نکردم و خیلی سرسری مطالعه کردم. می‌خواستم 2 ستاره بدهم ولی 1 ستاره هم به این دلیل اضافه کردم که: نگاهی نو و جدید داشت به موضوعی که حتی فکرش رو هم نمی‌کنیم. فارغ از صحت [...]

    20. I have to clarify my rating here: One star for "scholarship" and five stars for entertainment value. Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods is, of course, one of, if not the, classic works of pseudoarchaeology and UFOlogy. Von Daniken blithely ignores close to a century of archaeological and anthropological theory so that he can tilt at the windmills of some imagined scientific "establishment." Most of his "arguments" consist of something along the lines of "We're not really sure how pre-histo [...]

    21. I am sure most people will pan this book - unsubstantiated, inaccurate, baseless, ridiculous, blah, blah, blah. The fact of the matter is that the author does not prove that aliens visited Earth at any time in our past, nor does he claim to have proof of it - ever. Not once in this book does he claim to have such proof, and he repeats that over and over. Anyone who argues otherwise formed their judgments before reading this book. As far as inacuracies, the book was written in the late 1960's. It [...]

    22. I remember reading this in high school and thinking it was soooo cool. I still think it's pretty cool, but maybe I don't think about aliens as much as I did then. I have to say he raised some interesting points, but my main interest was that it is often too difficult for people to believe that ancient cultures were very sophisticated and able to create things from their imaginations in much the same way we do. Hence, the idea that they were incapable of doing the things they obviously did, it mu [...]

    23. يادم مي‌آيد " اريك فون دنيكن " زماني در ايران بسيار هوادار و خواننده داشت. فون دنيكن با تئوري‌هاي تخيلي و جذاب خود بر اين اعتقاد بود كه اهرام مصر را انسان‌ها با دانش و امكانات محدود آن زمان نشاخته‌اند بلكه موجوداتي ديگر با دانشي بيشتر از سيارات ديگر پا بهزمين گذاشتند و اين بن [...]

    24. When I was young I was convinced that aliens had visited us on many occasions. I have changed the way I think about the facts now, but this book was one of the first books I ever read that made me consider an alternate narrative to mainstream thoughtd for that it will always have a special place on my 'life bookshelf.'

    25. A great deal has been said about this book in the 84 years of its publishing history. Time has undone the author and the claims he made in this book which once set the cash registers ringing in bookshops across the World. An amalgamation of lies, half truths and hearsay all stuck together with the glue of one man's passion. A passion that sees the hand of extra terrestrial intellect behind everything on our planet is pretty much how I would sum up the entire book.One thing must be said of von D [...]

    26. I'm a fan of the first season of Ancient Aliens and I wanted to read this book because it seems to be the one that started it all.Perhaps when it first came out, it was ground-breaking and intriguing, so people ignored how poorly it was written.But now that the ancient alien theory has been explored more fully - and made into an entire television series - this book falls flat.I found the writing difficult to read. Not because of large words or the difficulty of the issues. Rather, the prose is s [...]

    27. This book is a good introduction for those who know little to nothing about Ancient Alien Studies.Von Daniken, in Chariots of the Gods, has looked across broad geographic regions, evidences, and time periods to assemble a host of information that contradicts the mainstream interpretation that ancient civilizations were less advanced than our own. He also attacks the notion that ancient mythologies and artwork were imaginative. Instead, Von Daniken holds firmly to the belief that the "mythologies [...]

    28. It is no wonder that people have strong feelings about this book. Those who can simply read a book, no matter the topic, and just listen to what the writer has to say, will obtain from this particular book just another good read and perhaps pass it along to someone else. Daniken takes everything we have been taught about human nature, creationism, evolution, and the development of man and turns it on its head by simply suggesting an alternative explanation for how we came to be what we are and w [...]

    29. Is it possible that we can find life on other planets in our solar system? (Life on Mars?)Is it possible we are not the only intelligences in the universes?Is it possible that older, technically more advanced intelligences live or have lived in our galaxy?Is there a possibility that older intelligences could have paid a visit to earth?Questions, questions, questions. This book is FULL of them and thats what i love about it. This books makes you THINK.Is it possible? When you bring up the history [...]
