There have been alien visitors to our planet in ancient times - at
least Philip Coppens, author, investigative journalist and lecturer, is
convinced of that. But for him, his conviction alone is not enough, so he
takes a great many of the popular myths about alien aliens - including
quite a few by Erich von Däniken, probably the Godfather of ancient alien
research due to his book Chariot of the Gods - and takes them apart. And
what he finds is sometimes less than inspiring, because many of the
popular myths are incredibly easy to debunk, be it by mere scientific fact
or by speculations leading to another direction (like lost civilisations)
that might be far-fetched in their own right but less far-fetched than
There are some myths however that do lack explanation,
that might offer alien visitors as the best possible speculation. Does
this at all prove we've been visited?
No, not even in the eye of our
host Philip Coppens ... but it does leave enough room to continue
Out of all the "documentaries" about
ancient aliens/alien visitors, this is very probably one of the best ones,
simply because Philip Coppens hasn't set out to make anyone believe but
instead tests many a popular theory, if they hold up to his standards as
an investigative journalist. And unsurprisingly, only very few do. What
makes this work though is that Coppens doesn't look down on these theories
he has debunked from his elevated position but simply sticks to facts -
for the most time at least, in some instances it does become clear that
Coppens reaches the limitations of his expertise, some times he all too
clearly "wants to believe", and other times, the speculations he
presents as alternative explanations somehow lack footing in fact.
that as it may, this documentary does probably more to open the minds of
doubters or non-believers in alien visitations than any number of
pseudo-scientific alien researchers/ancient alien preachers alike, simply
because it remains amacingly sober throughout and avoids sensationalism
that would only marr its intentions.
