Erich von Däniken

Dátum narodenia: 14. apríl 1935

Erich Anton Paul von Däniken, obvykle len Erich von Däniken je švajčiarsky spisovateľ, ktorý je známy svojimi prácami o mimozemskom ovplyvňovaní ľudskej kultúry od prehistorických čias. Je jednou z osobností popularizujúcich paleokontakt a hypotézy starovekých kozmonautov. Jeho hypotézy sú obľúbené u mnohých čitateľov, avšak väčšina vedcov ich prijíma so značnou skepsou.

„Klamstvo je zlým príspevkom k riešeniu problémov.“

„Zvedavosť a túžba po poznaní sú od samého prvopočiatku hnacou silou neustávajúceho ľudského bádania.“

„Mýliť sa nie je žiadna hanba, pokiaľ sa dokážeme z omylu poučiť, že človek nesmie vynášať svoje súdy a zbrklo.“

„Svet má nekonečné možnosti, to mozog má úzke obzory.“

„Could it be that God was an extra-terrestrial? What do we mean when we say that heaven is in the clouds? From Jesus Christ to Elvis Presley, every culture tells us of high-flying bird men who zoom around the world creating magnificent works of art and choosing willing followers to share in the eternal glory from beyond the stars. Can all these related phenomena merely be dismissed as coincidence?“ Chariots of The Gods

„If we want to set out on the aruous search for the truth, we must all summon up the courage to leave the lines along which we have thought until now and as the first step begin to doubt everything that we previously accepted as correct and true. Can we still afford to close our eyes and stop up our ears because new ideas are supposed to be heretical and absurd?“ Chariots of The Gods

„Not until we have taken a look into the future shall we be strong and bold enough to investigate our paste honestly and impartially“ Chariots of The Gods

„Space travelers in the gray mists of time? An inadmissible question to academic scientists. Anyone who asks questions like that ought to see a psychiatrist.“ Chariots of the Gods

„The time has come for us to admit our insignificance by making discoveries in the infinite unexplored cosmos. Only then shall we realize that we are nothing but ants in the vast state of the universe. And yet our future and our opportunities lie in the universe, where gods promised they would.“ Chariots of The Gods

„Hemos perdido la oportunidad de saber, y durante demasiado tiempo nos han obligado a creer.“ According to the Evidence

„Wichtigtuer sind zwar zu gut erzogen, um mit vollem Mund zu sprechen. Aber sie haben keine Bedenken, es mit leerem Kopf zu tun.“

„How often the pillars of our wisdom have crumbled into dust!“ Chariots of the Gods

„On a clear night the naked eye can see about 4,500 stars, so the astronomers say. The telescope of even a small observatory makes nearly 2,000,000 stars visible, and a modern reflecting telescope brings the light from thousands of millions more to the viewer—specks of light in the Milky Way. But in the colossal dimensions of the cosmos our stellar system is only a tiny part of an incomparably larger stellar system—of a cluster of Milky Ways, one might say, containing some twenty galaxies within a radius of 1,500,000 light-years (1 light-year=the distance traveled by light in a year, i. e., 186,000 × 60 × 60 × 24 × 365 miles). And even this vast number of stars is small in comparison with the many thousands of spiral nebulae disclosed by the electronic telescope. Disclosed to the present day, I should emphasize, for research of this kind is only just beginning.“ Chariots of the Gods

„Proofs of the “truth” always start from the center of one’s own religion and work outward. The result is a biased way of thinking which we are brought up to accept from childhood. Nevertheless generations lived and still do live in the conviction that they possess the “truth.“ Chariots of the Gods

„Innumerable careful examinations of all kinds of stones in all parts of the world prove that the earth’s crust was formed about 4,000,000,000 years ago. Yes, and all that science knows is that something like man existed 1,000,000 years ago! And out of that gigantic river of time it has managed to dam up only a tiny rivulet of 7,000 years of human history, at the cost of a lot of hard work, many adventures and a great deal of curiosity. But what are 7,000 years of human history compared with thousands of millions of years of the history of the universe?“ Chariots of the Gods

„It’s hardly worth mentioning all of the hundreds of thousands of writings that have fallen victim to fire or intentional destruction over the centuries.“ History Is Wrong
