This of course, deals with astronomy and space, etc.
I can imagine that Erik von Daniken is regarded in low esteem by many here? He coined the phrase "Was God an astronaut?"
He was not the first to make the connection between religion, god and UFOs. M K Jessup in his 1956 book "UFO and the Bible" said that the description in the Book of Ezekiel - is all about a UFO sighting, described in the language of it's time. Also it is apparent that similar descriptions elsewhere in the Bible, again refer to UFOs.
Joseph Blumrich - a NASA engineer designed a spacecraft according to the description in the Book of Ezekiel - shown in his book "The Spaceships of Ezekiel" of the 70s'. My own personal view, is that it is most probably not that accurate at all, to the original, but shows inspiration via the description.
Much like that mentioned by Nick Cook in his book "The Hunt for Zero Point" Energy - he mentions an aircraft designer who was inspired by UFO design, to design his own version of a similar looking plane, based upon a personal sighting of a UFO. This book covers secret projects by the Nazis during WW2, the birth of the US aerospace industry, Zero Point Energy (Read up about the 'Casimir Effect' as to what Zero Point Energy is) - as well as other strange inventions, etc by a writer who normally writes for an Aviation magazine.
Anyway - all gods for all cultures - were in effect ETs. Who taught mankind how to feed, clothe and house themselves. The connection is immediately obvious - they all came from the sky - ie. heavens - and went back there.
And Biblical prophets were UFO contactees - they all met with 'God' an ET - in remote places - such as in the desert or on a mountain top. And yes - Billy Meier is such a prophet today. He does his best to set the record straight, with true and accurate information.
You have only to start reading his contact notes - to see whether this information is believable or not?
The reason why statues for the gods, were so huge - such as Greek gods and the Easter Island statues - is that, they were giants.
