Anybody familiar with the ancient astronaut theory, which has over the years grown to be called the ancient alien theory as well, has more than likely
heard of Erich Von Daniken and his work on the subject, as well as the ridicule he has recieved, but he's been at it for awhile. And he sparked
interest in a number of other fields of research and specialists as well. This is not a phenomenon being looked at by general public observers as a
nice hobby, but rather a topic being tackled from various specilized fields of study over a broad specrtum transcending individualistic beliefs.
In other words, intelligent people are showing they have an interest in this, interests they may have a foundation for believing in.
Feel free to research and contribute your take on Von Daniken's work. There is so much on him out there a list of links would be a waste of space
But, here is a link to the Ancient Astronaut Society's website, a good place to start some research if you are interested:
Hence, The first episode:
Here is a list of the individuals who took part in the development of the first episode, beyond Erich Von Danken, and provided interviews that aired
in the show. Most of them are supporters, or speciealists who entertain the possibility. But, of course the show offers critics and skeptics
perceptions as well.
Here is a list of the interviewees, and their credentials. I'll provide some of their quotes, and more information on their credentials later. after
i do some more research. I'm going to start with the first name on the list, if anyone else wants to research anyone else on the list, and provide a
brief bio, and sny possibly relevent quotes and info on them.
