- Science once told us that man, as we are today, descended from the ape kingdom, and that our closest living relatives on the evolutionary chain are chimpanzees. Today, however, we know it’s a bit more complicated than that, for we know we are not directly descended from existing ape species, but have common ancestors with them.
The biggest mystery asked in evolution is how and why humans have evolved to become so varied. “The Missing Link” refers to the last common ancestor we have with chimpanzees. So far archaeology is yet to find fossil evidence of an animal that was ancestral to both chimpanzee and homosapiens. These ancestors are thought to have existed about 6 to 8 million years ago, and Darwin believed that archaeologists would eventually find this link in fossilised proof, confirming man was descended from apes.
Could there be a possibly larger, and more perceived bizarre and disturbing answer to that enigma?
Maybe we have not discovered this link due to the fact that perhaps, there is more than one ancestor - and also, perhaps, it’s of an extra-terrestrial source!
In 1968 a book emerged into publication called Chariots of the Gods, and 55 years later still courts controversy, ridicule and scepticism by the mainstream scientific community and lay-men alike. Its author, Erich Von Däniken, would go on to write several more books and would cement himself as one of the main proponents of the Alien Astronaut Theory, an idea that extra-terrestrial beings made contact with early man and helped shape and influence early civilisations.
Von Daniken’s claims and works have been labelled “pseudo-science”, “pseudo-history” and “pseudo-archaeology”. The general claims through these books are that “Ancient Astronauts” visited Earth many millennia ago and helped early man “evolve” from the apes. It is also put forth that these entities helped humans construct great structures and monuments, such as the Pyramids in Egypt and the statues that are found on Easter Island.
Believers in this ideology would also argue that man was taught by these beings language and writing, agriculture, the arts, technology and social organisation, and that we were, perhaps for some time, slaves to these “Gods”, providing them with food, labour and perhaps even companionship.
What happened to these beings and why they are not around now is also cause for speculation and theory.
Believe it or not, but there is evidence to support this theory. Apart from the structures mentioned earlier, that still today have an air of mystery surrounding their creation, there are ancient temples and buildings with pictures depicting early man possibly interacting with strange looking men, depictions of flying machines with men in them, and carvings of lines and objects in sand in southern Peru.
Also many ancient tribes, including the Mayans and Australian Aboriginals, had knowledge of astronomy, mathematics and geometry. A remote African tribe told two French explorers in 1931 that they had acquired their knowledge of astronomy from beings called the Nommo, that resembled fish and were here to watch over mankind.
Many ancient tribes and clans speak of “men from the sky” who appeared and either guided and instructed them or caused destruction, mayhem and grief. Is it possible that perhaps humankind is descended from an ancestor that was genetically mixed, through laboratory experimentation or sexual breeding, with chimpanzees?
Or perhaps there was/is more than one ancestor?
Could the fact that we have many cultures, languages and nationalities be because we are the product of breeding done by more than one species of extra-terrestrial visitors?
Could that also explain the many religions, myths, folklore and belief systems that exist?
“Mainstream” scientists and academics, as well as general sceptics, would call this “fantastical nonsense” or “lunacy” and even science fiction, and Von Daniken has, as many people before him and after, been criticised and critiqued. To his detriment, he has admitted that he has made up/fabricated a small portion of events experienced by himself to “add more interest to his work”.
So is a little embellishment to gain a little more publicity enough to discredit a whole theory?
The theory, Von Daniken and his works, as well as works by other proponents of this theory, continue today to be popular and are met by many with an open mind. However, more evidence is needed to further the notion and “enlighten” the scientific community.
Are we the result of an alien breeding experiment by colonies from other worlds?
If so, are they still around and continuing to help us evolve? Are we ever to find evidence of this? Are there “Missing Links” yet to be discovered by archaeology or palaeontology? Are we descendants from “Gods”?

This man has put a HUGE! impact in my life, he has enlightened me! :)
Erich von Däniken, the world’s most successful non-fiction writer of all time, has written 26 books on the topic and has sold over 63 million copies worldwide. His books have been translated into 32 languages. In the United States Erich von Däniken won instant fame as a result of the television special “In Search of Ancient Astronauts,” based upon his first book Chariots of the Gods.
So we all know who we are, right? That we are all God, eternal extensions of Source/All That Is, that ‘the kingdom of heaven is within each of us’. That we are free, infinite beings. That there is no God judging us up there in the sky - this is all just a given, right? So now a question: Who are these numerous ‘gods’ talked about in the ancient Christian, Hebrew, Hindu and Buddhist scriptures, and the Sumerian tablets, and many other ancient sources? These ‘gods’ that came down from ‘heaven’ or ‘the stars’ in ‘chariots of fire’? I am sure a lot of you know, the information on this isn’t hard to find anymore.
So why contemplate this or research this? Because, if humanity knows its real ancient history it can move forward more easily. If humanity can see that not only were we seeded with genetics but also many other things such as money, desiring of gold, kings, kingdoms, elitism etc, and can also see that we have forgotten about many magnificent technologies, and techniques we used to use (that we used to generate free unlimited energy, for example) - then it is easier to move forward and co-create a more harmonious, loving and peaceful planet.
If you really research this, and dig around, you may find some of this information hard to get your head around, like you have just switched to some sort of alternative Earth, best to keep your mind and heart very much open. The amount of evidence is overwhelming though - we have been so deeply asleep! Some of the information can evoke fear in some, but when you start putting the pieces of the jigsaw or threads of the tapestry together, from many varied sources, you will see that there is nothing to fear and the future is very bright and exciting, if you prefer it to be :-) Some get angry that the elite have systematically hidden this information from us, but we have hidden this information from ourselves, there are never any victims in truth, it is all co-creation. At a soul level, we have chosen all this for ourselves, partly to rediscover these things - for some exciting revelations.
