The Great Flying Saucer Myth

The Great Flying Saucer Myth by Kelly L. Segraves

The Problem

Notice the crucial flaw in his logic. Von Daniken postulates that it is impossible for intelligent creatures to evolve on this planet. He says our technology is too advanced and man's thinking capabilities are too great for man to be the result of the process of evolution. Therefore, he calls upon an outside force, intelligent creatures from other planets who have surpassed us in technology, who have come in the past to bring man on this planet to our simple level of technology. My question for Von Daniken is simply, where did these intelligent beings come from? If evolution does not explain man's origin on earth, it is equally impossible to explain man evolving on some other planet, especially with a higher degree of technology than we now possess. Who is responsible for their mutation and artificial insemination which brought about their evolution to the level of super intelligence? All Von Daniken has done is beg the question. Doubting the possibility of man's development on this planet, he says that intelligent beings have evolved on other planets, and they came to earth to produce man. But he has not explained the origin of those intelligent beings, therefore he has failed to explain the origin of man.
