In the first half of Alien Universe, Lincoln looks to Western civilization's collective image of Aliens, showing how our perceptions of extraterrestrials have evolved over time. The roots of this belief can be traced as far back as our earliest recognition of other planets in the universe—the idea of them supporting life was a natural progression of thinking that has fascinated us ever since. Our captivation with Aliens has, however, led to mixed results. The world was fooled in the nineteenth century during the Great Moon Hoax of 1835, and many people misunderstood, with calamitous results, Orson Welles's 1938 radio broadcast, The War of the Worlds. Our continuing interest in Aliens is reflected in entertainment successes such as E.T., The X-Files, and Star Trek.
The second half of Alien Universe explores the scientific possibility of whether advanced Alien civilizations do exist. For many years, researchers have sought to answer Enrico Fermi’s great paradox—if there are so many planets in the universe and there is a high probability that many of those can support life, then why have we not actually encountered any Aliens? (Apologies to those who are sure we have.) Lincoln describes how modern science teaches us what is possible and what is not in our search for extraterrestrial civilizations.
Whether you are drawn to the psychological belief in Aliens, the history of our interest in life on other planets, or the scientific possibility of Alien existence, Alien Universe is sure to hold you spellbound.-- Jocelyne DiRuggiero, Johns Hopkins University
Jim Moroney's The Extraterrestrial Answer Book is a valuable guide for everything extraterrestrial. In it, Moroney outlines steps the government needs to take to address the presence of extraterrestrials, as well as those average people can take. Full of practical advice to help you prepare for an encounter with an extraterrestrial, The Extraterrestrial Answer Book succeeds in answering the most important question in the debate over extraterrestrials and UFOs.
We are not alone.
This is what he remembers:
On that wild night, that astonishing night, extraterrestrials related the fantastic but no less true history and destiny of the Earth and its inhabitants: the origins of human life on Earth, the existence of nonhuman life in the Pleiades and Sirius star systems, and the work of the legendary "Great White Brotherhood."
To this day, Gammill still feels "on board" perpetually linked with this mysterious but exalted gathering of humans and aliens, a kind of galactic summit. It took him months to make some sense of his experience--the words, pictures, teachings, and the nature of the beings he encountered.
The Gathering contains Gammill's original account of that experience and the revelations given to the gathering about humankind, its origins, its current possibilities and likely future--including the end times, the apocalypse, and our interaction with celestial beings. The information in this book is a wake-up call to our planet: The gathering is assembling and the future is now.
Over the next five decades, von Däniken’s more than 40 books built an ever-stronger case for Earth being visited by extraterrestrial visitors. And Chariots became an international best seller, with 30 million copies sold in more than two dozen languages. Also during that time, the case for ET visitations millennia ago was being reexamined by contemporary UFO researchers, who found evidence of modern visitations. And von Däniken expanded his perspective to encompass the present.
Now, he presents his long-awaited sequel to Chariots of the Gods, proclaiming that the gods never left us with all-new material to show that ancient aliens are still with us.
The Gods Never Left Us contends that recent advancements in biotechnology, astrophysics, engineering, and artificial intelligence not only give us a fresh perspective on his ancient astronaut theory but actually validates it. We are—as a race—embarking on the exact same trajectory of our own interplanetary colonization, just as von Däniken suggested Earth itself was colonized.
ETs are definitely at work today. And that affects all of us.Why do they do what they do? What could an extraterrestrial species possibly gain from observing us in the same way we look at ants?What have these strangers wanted for the past thousands of years?Can’t they leave us alone?And what makes it so difficult for us to acknowledge the existence of these extraterrestrials?
That is what this book deals with.
"Erich's newest book is a fascination journey from the ancient past into the present with a plethora of scientific evidence and documented research. As always, he ads his own "to the point" take on it all. Readers may also like that his newest work moves in a slightly different direction from his past books. A thoroughly enlightening and enjoyable Read." —Bruce Cunningham, Director, Ancient Mysteries International LLC & Publisher of Advanced Archaeology Review magazine
