The Great Flying Saucer Myth by Kelly L. Segraves

Chariots of the Gods

Erick Von Daniken has written several books, Chariots of the Gods, Gods from Outer Space, Gold of the Gods. He is responsible for a major television special, "In Search of Ancient Astronauts," and he bases much of his entire theory and concept upon what he refers to as a literal interpretation of Genesis. Von Daniken was reared in church, but never had his questions answered and Genesis 1:26 always bothered him. "Let us make man in our image." Von Daniken could not conceive of one God when this passage talks about plurals. Evidently he had not studied closely or he would have realized that Elohim, the first word for God in the Scriptures, always refers to God in the plural. He evidently missed the point of the Spirit of God moving upon the face of the waters (vs.2). He overlooked the New Testament passages referring to Jesus Christ as the One who created all things. These three references alone give us a perfect picture of the Trinity. He says that the "us" in Genesis must refer to plural gods. Von Daniken says he has problems with the miracles of the Bible and also has problems with evolution. He claims the evolution of man cannot explain man because the evolutionary concept, according to Von Daniken, cannot explain the intelligence and technology of man.
