Foerster's programmes should be shown on a comedy channel they are so far from reality and fact. He makes a fortune giving tours and presenting his own particular brand of lies, lies and more lies, about ancient history and is in the same class as other scammers Erich von Däniken and Graham Hancock.

As Carl Sagan said - (and the same can be said about Foerster/Hancock)

That writing as careless as von Däniken's, whose principal thesis is that our ancestors were dummies, should be so popular is a sober commentary on the credulousness and despair of our times. I also hope for the continuing popularity of books like Chariots of the Gods? in high school and college logic courses, as object lessons in sloppy thinking. I know of no recent books so riddled with logical and factual errors as the works of von Däniken.

I've read Chariots Of The Gods, it's the 2nd biggest pile of complete drivel, just beaten by every edition of The Independent.

I never mentioned Foerster. ! I was talking about the LARGE STONE in the video. NOT about him.

That stone exists and it weighs almost 2000 tonnes. There are plenty more video's about the subject on youtube.

They are said to have the ability to use sound to lift objects. This is something which our scientists are only now experimenting with. Sound can also be used as a weapon.

Acoustic Levitation. Possibly. The ancients had better skills with certain things than we do today, that's for sure.

von Däniken was a fantasist. His only gift was he knew what would sell books..!

Here's a small selection of the books I read....Which one would you chose? (If any).!

Good choice by the way..;)...As expected.

kaku talks about what can be not what could be...He talks about FACTS.

We like facts. ;)

Dawkins expertise is in Biology...Where life actually comes from...No from some made up 'GOD'..:)

You already know that..:)

A funny story....... Before i bought my own copy of Dawkins'..."The God Delusion"..I went into my local Library and asked for it just for a laugh.....'The God Delusion' By "Richard Dawkins' ???.....Everyone in the Library came to a stand still...! As if i'd asked for a book on Devil worship..:D

all the "facts" we see today may get challenged at some point in time, science is constantly updating and changing. What is fact today may be totally wrong tomorrow. I just read and learn and if it ever comes to use then all good. Least one can hold a conversation on various topics if nothing else :D . There is a lot between heaven and earth that us humans still have to discover. The ocean is one of the last frontiers for instance (yet we manage to screw that up as well as a species). Hope you are having a lovely weekend Altair - life is short :)

There is another book entitled 'We are Not the First', which may interest you. Can't remember the author's name.
