People wear hats in Peru! Because: Aliens!

Re-Watched Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Daniken for the first time in years.
I first watched it in 1971 (I think) when he was touring the world showing it in school/church halls.


Can't believe I ever took this seriously.

The process is something like this:

"People in Peru wear hats. Here are pictures of statues on Easter island. The hats are strikingly similar."

"Huge stone blocks! Pyramids! Thousands of tons!"

And so on.

It's never explicitly stated but the underlying message that should be added to every sentence is:


The past is human and when this kind of bollocks is produced and distributed it demeans the achievements of our ancestors.

Here is a table:

| Question:                 | Because: |
| Vimyana?                  | Aliens!  |
| Ark of the covenant?      | Aliens!  |
| Wall paintings of people? | Aliens!  |
| Ezekiel?                  | Aliens!  |
| Hats?                     | Aliens!  |
| Maths?                    | Aliens!  |
| Legs?                     | Aliens!  |
| Brains?                   | Aliens!  |
| iPhone?                   | Aliens!  |
| Democrats?                | Aliens!  |
| Republicans?              | Aliens!  |
| Sean Hannity?             | Aliens!  |
| Putin?                    | Aliens!  |
| Glenn Beck?               | Aliens!  |
| Obama?                    | Aliens!  |
| Taxes?                    | Aliens!  |
| Big Foot?                 | Aliens!  |

Depressingly familiar, no?

And just for the heck of it, go to and read some of the articles.
I was particularly entranced with:


As it has a lot to do with:

Because I'm a developer and *KNOW* the web consists of chicken wire and chewing gum.
We're all doomed.

Because: Aliens!
