More About The Cult of Alien Gods by Jason Colavito
 
 
 
Overview
Many Americans believe that so-called ancient astronauts (visitors from outer space) were responsible for historical wonders like the pyramids. This entertaining and informative book traces the origins of such beliefs to the work of horror writer H. P. Lovecraft (1890 1937). The author takes the reader through fifty years of pop culture and pseudoscience highlighting such influential figures and developments as Erich von Daniken ("Chariots of the Gods"), Graham Hancock ("Fingerprints of the Gods"), Zecharia Sitchin ("Twelfth Planet"), and the Raelian Revolution. The astounding and improbable connections among these various characters are revealed, along with the disturbing consequences of Lovecraft s "little joke" for modern science and public knowledge."
