Description:Documents the scientific inadequacy of Erich Von Daniken's theory and book, Chariot of the Gods? Refutes his assumptions about the limits of human capabilities by demonstrating how ancient civilizations, not visitors from outer space, erected the Easter Island monoliths and the pyramids of Egypt. Other examples expose the abuse of data in pseudoscience, demonstrating the suppression of data and the admitted use of unreliable and falsified data.
