Guardians of the Universe
From the Publisher:
This author is one of the earlier writers who criticized authors such as Erich von Daniken, Morris K. Jessup, Roberth Charroux, Robert Temple, who suggest that "ancient astronauts" or "gods from outer space" have visited this planet. His earlier book, The Space-Gods Revealed was an in-depth examination of Von Daniken. In this book he now takes a closer look at those theories. Story says: "much of von Daniken's broad appeal derives, I think, from his use of the Bible as an authority symbol while at the same time reinterpreting the scriptures to suit his own needs."
He writes: "contrary to what Von Daniken would have us believe ... All sorts of magical rites and primitive religions can still be observed in what are called contemporary 'stone-age' cultures. These modern-day 'primitives' worship some of the same 'gods' and perform similar ceremonies as their ancestors did, thousands of years ago."
But while Story takes pains to weed out those theories that do not seem to stand up to tests of reasonability, he is also open-minded and sensitive to the possibility of the existence of UFOs and of some form of extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs. His book will therefore appeal to the growing number of people who require a sensible appraisal of the subject.
Story has also included the most complete Bibliography ever to be published on the Ancient-Astronaut theory and related subjects. The result is a book that is one of the most informative, fascinating and controversial examinations of the many ET myths and mysteries surrounding our past—and, perhaps, our future.
