Aliens visited the earth in ancient times?
“Ancient astronauts” (or “ancient aliens”) refer to the pseudoscientific idea that intelligent extraterrestrial beings visited the earth and made contact with humans during ancient and prehistoric times. Proponents suggest that this contact affected the development of modern cultures, technologies and religions, and even human biology. A common position is that deities from most, if not all, religions are of extraterrestrial origin and that advanced technology brought to earth by ancient astronauts was interpreted as evidence of the divine status of early humans.
Ancient astronaut theory asks if the gods are indeed aliens from outer space. Erich von Däniken claims that his theory has a basis in science and facts.
Erich Anton Paul von Däniken (born April 14, 1935) is a Swiss author of several books that make allegations of extraterrestrial influence on early human culture, including the best-selling wagons for the wagons? was published in 1968. Von Däniken is one of the main characters responsible for popularizing “paleo contact” and ancient astronauts’ hypotheses.

Ancient astronaut speculation (also called paleo-SETI), often labeled pseudoscience or modern myth, is still awaiting in-depth research. Focusing on Erich von Däniken and reconstructing his views on God and cosmology from scattered statements through his books, this article analyzes his attitudes towards science and religion as well as his notions of God and creation.
In this respect, his pantheistic combination of big bang theory with a model of god as supercomputer is of particular interest. By analogy with Roman interpretation, Däniken uses what I call a technological interpretation and explains myths by converting them into technological language.
Based on works by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Jean E. Charon, the Swiss writer also develops the vision of a cosmic tendency for increased knowledge and information. A brief comparison with Raël shows that similar ancient astronaut myths can lead to different applications or worldviews.
