It’s official – Philly gets its Wings – In Lacrosse We Trust
Philly gets its WINGS; alumni and fans come out for official name unveiling
Team will start play December 2018NLL Commisioner Nick Sakiewicz poses with Philadelphia Wings faithful during name the team ceremony (Photo credit: Rocco J. Granato)
A sound that used to echo inside the Spectrum and Wells Fargo Center was silenced on July 11, 2014 as the team relocated to New England and became the Black Wolves.
Fast forward to November 29, 2017 and the infamous chant came back to life outside XFINITY LIVE, as a skydiver delivered the team name and the lacrosse fans of Philadelphia received their WINGS once again.
Wings alumni Jake Bergey, Scott Gabrielsen, Paul Deniken and others were on hand with die-hard fans as it became official.
“It feels great seeing the Wings name again,” said Gabrielsen. “Wings fans are very passionate, and made their voices heard.”
Paul Deniken echoed the same feelings and added “I can’t wait to bring my kids and see the old faithful fans.”
Long time season ticket holders and Philadelphia Wings Fan Club Members (PWFC) were on hand and celebrated. Jay Davidson, also known as Chopper, said he “cant wait to get the chants going again.”
Eric Schultz (Big E. ), President of the PWFC, added “Now we have to wait another year, but it will be worth it.”
After a preliminary name selection by the fans that started on September 14, the final three names selected for the final vote were Founders, Fire, and Wings. The name the team contest generated more than 7,000 entries through an online vote, and it was made very clear the fans wanted the Wings back as they received over 5,000 votes.
“The Wings are clearly the favourite, and we’re happy to give the fans what they want,” said Lindsey Masciangelo, Executive Director of Business Operations.
Comcast Spectacor partnered with GOBI advertising in Haddonfield, NJ, to design the team’s logo, which embodies the city and the fans, according to Masciangelo.
“Respecting the fans’ desire for the Wings name, we wanted the look to feel fresh, but also pay homage to the history of indoor lacrosse in Philadelphia,” she said.
The Wings logo features a throwback to the previous team’s mark with a familiar “W,” but slightly refreshed. The color scheme features red, gold and charcoal, a combination that no other team in the NLL possesses, although the gold is similar to the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights. The “P” on the side of the uniform, representing Philadelphia, will serve as a secondary logo. It is also a connection to Comcast Spectacor’s other Philadelphia-area professional sports team, the Philadelphia Flyers, of the National Hockey League.
Starting in December 2018 the NLL will have 11 teams.
Eastern Conference: Philadelphia Wings, Rochester Knighthawks, Buffalo Bandits, Georgia Swarm New England Black Wolves & Toronto Rock.
Western Conference: Calgary Roughnecks, Colorado Mammoth, San Diego Seals, Saskatchewan Rush, and Vancouver Stealth.
NLL Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz was also in attendance for the event.
“Today marks yet another great milestone for the city of Philadelphia, its team and our league,” said Sakiewicz. “Philadelphia fans are among the best and most passionate in the world and today they spoke loudly through the fan vote revealing Philadelphia Wings as the team’s official identity. There are so many exciting things going on in the NLL right now that also mirrors this city’s dynamic sports scene. It’s great to see the fans get their Wings back as we inch closer to seeing the best lacrosse action in the world starting here in the 2018-19 season.”

“The world does not need to be saved” – Ogonyok No. 10 (5168) dated 03/14/2011
“History is Wrong” – a new book by Erich von Daniken, the author of the alien hypothesis of the origin of civilization. What mistakes the famous hoaxer is looking for in history, “Ogonyok” found out
The book “History is Wrong” is published by the publishing house “Peter” and is devoted to the study of the so-called Voynich manuscript, persistent attempts to decipher which so far have not been crowned with success (see help on the same page).Daniken did not succeed either, but after examining the “Voynich manuscript”, he discovered in it … a cosmic trail.
The main idea of Erich von Daniken is that in the image of ancient artifacts (obelisks, wall paintings in caves, in pyramids, in ancient books), as well as in ancient legends (for example, a description of the ark, chariots of fire) you can see rockets and aliens from other planets that once visited the Earth. And now, in his own house in the town of Interlaken, lost in the Bernese highlands, he, having taken out an album with illustrations from the manuscript, enthusiastically runs his finger over the pictures with images of unknown animals and strange plants and convinces us that they are related to space and the stars. to ancient astronomical knowledge…
Erich von Daniken is a traveler and archaeologist, publicist and popularizer, collector of facts and artifacts, the father of an incredible hypothesis about the origin of human civilization and the influence of aliens on its development.
Without graduating from any university, von Daniken wrote more than three dozen books. They have been translated into 30 languages, the total circulation of his publications exceeded 62 million copies. Daniken’s first and most famous book is Memories of the Future (based on which the Austrian director Harald Reinl later shot the famous popular science film).This book gave millions of readers an unconventional view of the history of human civilization and completely changed the fate of the author, pulling him out of debt and opening the way to world fame.
– How many people believe in your hypothesis?
– Faith and knowledge are two fundamentally different things. Faith is accepted without proof. Faith is religion. I am more sympathetic to a critic than a believer. I don’t believe, I know. In my field – we are talking about aliens, ancient religions, mythology, legends – I am the best in the world.This is my main quality, and in all other respects I am the same as everyone else.
For a hundred years now, scientists have been puzzling over what the unknown author of the “Voynich manuscript” illustrations portrayed

– How did you find this area of yours?
– It’s a long story.I grew up in Switzerland in a Catholic family. When I was a child, I imagined that God must have at least a minimum of certain qualities: he does not make mistakes, he is omnipresent. He does not need transport to get from point A to point B. For six years I studied at the gymnasium at a Jesuit monastery. I was 16 years old, we translated a lot from Greek and Latin, including from the Bible. And then I realized …
Read, for example, the prophet Ezekiel. It describes God descending from the clouds in a chariot.The noise of the chariot, the divine vehicle, he compares to the roar of a huge stream of water. The chariot has wings, wheels, and metal legs.
I wanted to know how things stand in the legends of other nations, whether they have similar stories, as in our Bible. And I noticed repeating elements: smoke, fire, noise, the earth trembles … I assumed that we are talking about aliens. That’s how it all started.
– Do you no longer believe in God?
– I pray every day.But I don’t know what God is. A large number of people much smarter than me tried to find God – unsuccessfully …
Let’s assume that I’m right: our ancestors, people of the Stone Age, were visited by aliens. And our ancestors came up with the idea that aliens are the gods. If this was so, then the next question naturally arises: where did these aliens come from? What evolution have they undergone? It can be assumed that they were fertilized by another solar system, and that – by another. So the situation can be played almost endlessly, hundreds of millions of years ago, but someday we will find ourselves at the beginning of the chain.And then we respectfully say: it is here that the Creation is, here is God! I have not lost the concept of God, I am not an atheist, but I am not a Christian either. It is unlikely that God has a son or daughter crucified on the cross. I don’t believe in that.
– But do you read the Bible?
– Only when I need to find something specific, lately it is very rare, because I know it almost by heart.
– Are you claiming that alien civilizations exist?
– This is generally accepted today.Where life can arise, there they are formed. Take statistics and look at just one of our own Galaxy, the Milky Way. After all, this is just a microscopic part of the universe, which, however, is inhabited by billions of stars. And if we assume that the conditions for the birth of primitive life are found only on individual planets, which make up a few percent of the total number of existing exoplanets, then we can say that only on our Milky Way we can meet several thousand highly developed civilizations.And the Universe is infinite, there are billions of galaxies in it!
– Suppose that aliens arrived, settled on Earth and met people. And what, they also had love, and sex, and offspring?
– Good topic. The idea that aliens copulated with beautiful girls is not mine, it is from ancient texts. Apocrypha do not belong to the biblical texts, because our ancestors did not understand them. Meanwhile, in one of the apocrypha, in the book “Enoch”, strangers are described – “guardians of heaven.”They descended from the sky, took beautiful women, had sex with them, and later they gave birth to children – giants.
So this whole fertilization idea has already been in history. Scientists, for example, object: aliens could not be what we were and are. And I answer that it was the aliens who created us in their own image and likeness! We are like them, not they are like us. It’s not the same! And then it all fits together. There is no doubt that there was sexual contact between us, that a common offspring was born.
The alleged author of the manuscript is the monk and alchemist Roger Bacon
Genetic manipulation and artificial insemination were known in antiquity. For example, Noah, a Flood survivor, is just such a “product”. This is not my invention, it is all written in ancient texts. Immaculate Conception, for example … It is believed that this story is only 2 thousand years old, but in fact Christianity borrowed it!
And the aliens – they will come back, you will see!
– Will you come back? When?
– When ?…. Every culture on Earth has its own calendar. Each calendar has its own starting point, it plays a very important role in the development of culture. For example, we who live in the Christian world count the time from the birth of Christ. Muslims have a different calendar, it begins in 622 AD, when the Prophet Muhammad decided to move to Medina. The Jewish culture, which is more ancient than the rest, has its own calendar, according to which 5700 is already running. In Central America, the Maya people also had their own calendar, it began on August 14, 3114 BC.NS. There were even several of them. Analysis of the Mayan calendars each time leads to a special date – December 23, 2012. According to the Mayan legend, everything will return to its origins. And the gods will return.
– So soon?
– The important thing is that the aliens will appear on Earth. Maybe tomorrow, maybe in 100 years.
– And what will happen? Apocalypse? Do we need to prepare for their arrival?
– Get ready.
– Read my books.
– You have several dozen of them. How did the first appear?
– My parents had a hotel and a restaurant. After high school, I studied to be a waiter, then a cook, and soon became the director of a first-class hotel. All these years, all my free time, I went to museums, traveled the world, read a lot, analyzed. My first book, Memories of the Future, was published in 1968 and immediately became a bestseller. I had money, I didn’t have to work in the hotel anymore.I turned out to be the lucky one whose hobby became a profession.
– How did you convince your first publisher to trust you, the hotel director?
– In the evenings I talked with the guests, we talked a lot. One journalist, the science editor of the German weekly Die Zeit, sat at my bar every year. And every time we talked about aliens. Once he said: “Erich, you need to write a book.” I told him that I have a book, but no publisher.Twenty publishers have already “sent” me. Then Thomas von Rando – that was the name of the journalist – replied that he knew one publisher and would try to help. He immediately went to the phone and dialed the number. I heard him say that he knows the author with a “crazy theory”, but the author himself seems to be not crazy …
But the title of the book “Memories of the Future” is really crazy: not a single editor wanted to accept it! I still remember exactly how this name came to my mind. It was a warm summer night, I was drunk and thinking about the cycle of life, and suddenly it came down!
For a hundred years now, scientists have been puzzling over what the unknown author of the illustrations of the “Voynich Manuscript” portrayed

– Do you still travel a lot?
– Six weeks ago I was in Bolivia at an altitude of 4600 meters.
– But it’s hard to breathe at this altitude!
– Not for those who talk to the Universe.
– What language?
– Without words.
– What is the purpose of your expeditions?
– I want to know as much as possible about alien visits to Earth. If possible, find some evidence – an object or thing. I haven’t found it yet. At least half of my expeditions have yielded nothing: you are looking for something and you do not find or you find some nonsense and you cannot use it anywhere.But maybe someone else will find it.
I’m pretty sure the aliens will return. In books and reports, I want to warn people: be careful, we are not alone here, the universe is full of life! They will return – you will be shocked and defeated. You will not know what to do with your religion, your science. So which is more reasonable: it is difficult to imagine or categorically deny?
– What is the biggest mystery to be solved in the near future?
– Definitely – this secret is under the pyramids and sphinxes! Two and a half thousand years ago, Herodotus wrote that there is a lake under the great pyramid and that there is a sarcophagus in the crystal clear water of this lake.Nobody believed it. Three years ago, a mine was found right under the pyramid. I was there, I have good photos. Herodotus was right. He also wrote about the gods who descended from the stars to people …
When I was not yet famous, I studied a lot of mythology and archeology and found that I often look at some objects – ornaments, stones, maps, for example – in a different way than specialists. I know many scientists, they are wonderful and witty people, but they are all “narrow-minded”. They see everything only from their own perspective and at the same time make claims to me that I, they say, look at everything only from my bell tower! For example, I read the Bible, the Old Testament and see that it is about aliens.The theologian reads the same book and the same text, but he never even thinks about it. His faith, his approach are completely different from mine. Therefore, the question is which view is considered more reasonable. We are all specialists, and we all look at things rather narrowly. But over the years, we become more open. And if in my youth I was very offended by criticism, today I just don’t give a damn about it. We are all people worthy of love.
– Who is the main critic of you?
– Archaeologists and theologians.Sometimes anthropologists.
– What do physicists say?
– “Thank God that you are writing about this! We cannot, because our colleagues will not take us seriously, it should be done by someone not from our circle”, – this was said with admiration, for example, by Harry Oscar Ruppé German rocket engineer. Many years ago, I also had close contact with Werner von Braun, a genius pioneer. It was he who sent the Saturn-5 rocket to the moon.

– You are a connoisseur of the past, but what can you say about the modern world?
– I’m afraid we are heading in the wrong direction – towards the rule of laws and regulations.We call ourselves democracy, but more and more we go into dictatorship, chopping off freedom in pieces. Take, for example, political correctness in journalism – you can no longer say and write what you want, otherwise you will be sued. Smoking is prohibited everywhere. Of course, we are respectful of non-smokers and do not smoke in the restaurant, but leave us at least the bar! What is it for ?! Again diktat, diktat, diktat !!!
– Who imposes it?
– People! They are the worst thing on this planet.Each person believes that only he is right, and tries to impose his own way of thinking, way of life on another. But we are all one of a kind, like me or you no longer exist. This can be proven by fingerprints or at the genetic level, and this confidence in one’s own uniqueness can give a person a sense of pride, self-confidence, but at the same time a sense of modesty, because those with whom he comes across are also unique. Why it happens? What spoils people? Economic problems, power ?!
I often read lectures and at the end I say to the audience: “Ladies and gentlemen, please do not believe this! Check it out! This is just my opinion, and I believe that I am largely right, but I leave the questions open.And you shouldn’t think I’m right. “
– What can save our world?
– The world does not need to be saved, it is what it is.
Interviewed by Marina Karlin, Alina Tukalo90,000 Science, Education: History: Surprising Discovery: Erich Von Daniken: read online
In the spring of 1927, Peruvian archaeologist Toribio Mejia Xesspe worked in the valley of the small river Rio de Nazca.Climbing the mountain, he decided to take a break. He looked down and saw something unusual: clear, straight lines stretched in front of him on the almost black sands. Only 13 years later, having measured two strange lines with steps, he finally wrote about his find .
In June 1940, the historian Paul Kosok traveled to Nazca. He examined several pistas (stripes), lineas (narrow small lines) and spirals. His article on this was published only in 1947 .
By that time, the German geographer and mathematician Dr. Maria Reiche had arrived in Peru from Dresden.Dr. Reiche knew nothing of the Nazca lines; for her, the study of calendar connections between different points of observation of the sun, which could be in Peru, was of greater interest. By a happy coincidence, she met Paul Kosok. He enthusiastically told her about the strange signs that he saw from the mountain. At first, for Maria, this was only a minor project, but soon strange signs seriously carried her away. Together with Paul Kosok, she published a long article on the plateau in the journal Archeology .
In the following years, Maria Reiche was completely absorbed in the Nazca mystery. Her research in the desert became the meaning of her entire life. She spent many years cracking the mysterious nut. Already at that time, Maria Reiche compared some of the lines to runways: “Then the air passengers … discovered large triangles and squares with clear lines on both sides. It seems that they were neatly drawn along a ruler … you might think that some of them were once runways ”.
When I wrote about the same lines in 1967 (by then the self-published books by Dr. Reiche were no longer available), the critics tore me to pieces . Since then, any quotes on this topic have always been attributed to me – in every edition imaginable – even if I never uttered them. Oddly enough, some “serious” publications wrote the most ridiculous nonsense imaginable. Here is a perfect example of how a statement can be misquoted and then end up in the press archives, from which it is constantly dug up and misquoted again.
In addition, many people declare (unfortunately, even in scientific publications), really indignant, that I called the Nazca plateau something like a “landing site for spaceships” . None of these words are written in my books [9, 10], especially in my book about Nazca “Signs turned to eternity” . It so happens that one author copies the mistakes of another, adding something of his own. That is why, and I am sorry to talk about it, I can no longer take seriously any of the so-called scientific authors writing about Nazca.
Dr. Maria Reiche did not find the answer to the Nazca puzzle. Just before her death in 1998, a respected elderly researcher spoke out sharply that Nazca was probably the creation of shamans and spirits.
There seem to be as many theories about the Nazca mystery as there are fish in the ocean. In my book on Nazca, I wrote as many of them as I could. I will skip the bibliography and go straight to the list of the most popular theories.

100 years ago, the White Guard troops of Anton Denikin approached Moscow at a distance of about 350 km.The general was already dreaming of the quick capture of Tula, which opened a direct route to the capital. However, at Orel, the Denikinites were stopped and forced to retreat units of the Red Army. The threat to Soviet Moscow has passed, and soon the White movement in the South of Russia will be defeated from which it will no longer be able to recover.
Denikin’s unfulfilled dream
On October 17, 1919, units of the Armed Forces of the South of Russia, under the general command of General Anton Denikin, occupied Novosil, an old town near Orel and 350 km south of Moscow.It seemed that the campaign of Denikin’s troops, proclaimed back on July 3 and since then quite successfully developing, would end with the capture of the ancient capital and the overthrow of the Bolshevik regime.
The head of the Council of People’s Commissars Vladimir Lenin was indeed very afraid of the advance of the White armies from the south, having issued his famous proclamation “All for the fight against Denikin!”
However, that was a little earlier, in the summer.
By October, the Reds had thrown off their panic, found additional resources, including human resources, and already clearly knew how to stop the Denikinites on the distant approaches to Moscow.The commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of South Russia, like his headquarters, blinded by a series of successful operations and the capture of large cities from Kiev and Kharkov to Voronezh and Orel, had already seen Tula arms factories through binoculars and dreamed of the golden domes of Moscow.
The expectations of the White Guard command were not destined to come true, even if General Nikolai Yudenich was simultaneously advancing from the north to Petrograd, creating the illusion of a vice in which the anti-Bolshevik forces intended to squeeze the red center of the country.Alexander Kolchak was doing extremely badly in the east. Denikin’s hopes of uniting with the Kolchakites — only this could put Lenin and the Soviet regime in a truly difficult position — were dwindling every day. The unification of the armies never happened. Between the travels of Denikin and Kolchak, only occasional contacts took place on the banks of the Volga near Tsaritsyn.
And Novosil in the end remained the point of greatest advancement of the Armed Forces of South Russia, whose base was considered Yekaterinodar and Taganrog, to Moscow.In the Orel region, the Reds stopped the whites, turned them around and drove them back to the Black Sea.
Subsequently, General Pyotr Wrangel, opposed to Denikin, will indicate in his memoirs a lot of reasons why the offensive of the White Guard forces on Moscow failed.
Moving forward, he writes, the Denikinites did not bother to create defensive knots and a strong rear.
In other words, when they were forced to retreat, they had nothing to catch on – in the opposite direction, fields and steppes stretched for hundreds of kilometers, without a single opportunity to gain a foothold and start a positional struggle.In parallel, the whites were significantly annoyed by the then allied rebel detachments of the ataman Nestor Makhno – the so-called black-greens.
On October 11, the numerically superior Red armies, reinforced by Latvian, Estonian and Chinese national units, launched an offensive in the Oryol-Kursk direction. Initially, unusually fierce battles on the whole were in favor of whites who were more sophisticated in military art: by the end of the second decade of October, volunteers occupied the Novgorod-Seversky – Dmitrovsk – Orel – Novosil – south of Yelets – Don line.But, by this time, their offensive everywhere had drowned, and on the Sevsk – Dmitrovsk – Kromy – Oryol line, they hardly repulsed the enemy’s onslaught.
So, Novosil, first mentioned in the annals in 1155, marked the beginning of the end of the Denikin movement – one of the most significant military-political forces in Russia in 1918-1919, which had the goal of overthrowing the Bolshevik regime and acting from a position of unresolvedness. After the vigorous offensive of the All-Union Soviet Socialist Republic is replaced by an unorganized retreat, the threat to Red Moscow will finally disappear.
White staff-captain against the red general
History has preserved the name of the officer under whose command one of the units of the Armed Forces of Yugoslavia came closest to the Kremlin during the Civil War. Famous for his bravery, Staff Captain Pyotr Buzun, at the head of the elite 1st Alekseevsky Regiment of the Volunteer Army (this was the core of Denikin’s troops), knocked out of Novosil the 3rd Infantry Division of the 13th Army of the Red Army, which was commanded by a former tsarist general who had defected to the side of the Reds, Vladimir Gondel.
At the same time, units of the 2nd Kornilovsky regiment almost took the village of Kromy, but were forced to abandon this idea due to heavy losses. At the critical moment of the battle, the pride of the Red Army, beloved by Lenin and Leon Trotsky, the Latvian Rifle Division, arrived in time to help the crushed Red Army soldiers. The enemy dragged the Kornilovites into a long battle, frustrating their further advance: they had to forget about the attack on Tula. This allowed the command of the Southern Front of the Red Army, led by Alexander Egorov, to gain time.
While the strike forces of the ARSUR were occupied with positional battles, the Reds accumulated the reserves that had approached and deployed them to launch a counteroffensive.
“Retreated, suffering heavy losses”
On October 18, another “colored” (elite, formed from the best officer cadres) part of the Volunteer Army – the Markovites – went to Yelets, where they ran into the Red reservists preparing for the operation. It was not possible to take a strategically important city. Heavy oncoming battles were fought along the entire front line.White gradually began to lose the initiative. Fearing encirclement, their command decided to leave Eagle, which was done without a fight on the night of October 20. It was planned to vacate this intermediate point on the way to Moscow temporarily in order to gain a tactical advantage. However, contrary to the calculations of Denikin’s headquarters, White will not return so close to the goal.
“On a 500-verst front from Bakhmach to Zadonsk, heavy battles of the Volunteer Army were fought against an enemy three times superior to it (20 thousand against 50-60), – General Denikin told in detail about the events of those days in his“ Sketches of Russian Troubles ”.- Having weakened his right wing and concentrating the main forces on the Bryansk direction, General Vladimir May-Mayevsky managed to inflict a number of defeats on the shock group of the 14th Soviet army near Sevsk and Dmitrievsky, while his troops on the Oryol and Tula directions successfully repulsed the offensive. th army of the Reds.
But the general situation near Voronezh forced the army to leave Oryol and Livny.
Meeting the resistance of only a thin line of the Markov division, the 13th Soviet army continued the offensive, and several of its regiments in the 20th broke through to Fatezh and Shchigra, threatening Kursk.At the same time, Budyonny’s group attacked Kastornaya from October 24, meeting a strong rebuff from the Markov regiment that occupied it and the cavalry of Andrei Shkuro.
As a result of 30-day bloody battles, constantly maneuvering, gaining more than once private victories and suffering heavy losses, the troops of the Volunteer Army withdrew to the Konotop – Glukhov – Dmitriev – Kastornaya line. ”
On October 23, Gondel’s 3rd Infantry Division recaptured Novosil from the Alekseevites of Buzun. This minor episode, as it turns out later, was the turning point of the entire campaign.The clash between the Whites and the Reds in the Oryol region, starting with Novosil, upset the plans of the AFYUR command. Soviet Russia could feel calm.
“Moscow has already faded for us. Dark Russia with a dark space drove the hordes of the Bolsheviks. In the depths of their souls, many felt a sense of doom, ”the famous Drozdov officer Anton Turkul stated sadly in his memoirs.90,000 Aliens from outer space are seen throughout Daniken. All “miracles” in one book
Aliens from outer space are seen by Daniken everywhere
“It seems to us that the classical method of studying the prehistoric past has reached a dead end and therefore cannot provide correct and irreproachable conclusions.He is too attached to the chosen model of thinking and leaves no room for imagination and guesswork, which alone can give a creative impulse. ”
What is currently beyond the power of thousands of scientists around the world is undertaken by Erich von Daniken. So, in any case, he asserts in the book “Memories of the Future”; in his next work, Back to the Stars, he writes: “In the Tassili Mountains in the Algerian Sahara, there are many hundreds of rock carvings showing figures in fancy costumes.On their heads are round helmets with antennas, and it seems that they are floating in zero gravity. First of all, perhaps, it is necessary to mention the famous Tassil ball: in this drawing, discovered by the French explorer Henri Lot under a semicircular rock vault, where in a group of hovering couples a woman is distinguishable pulling a man behind her, a ball with four concentric circles is clearly visible. At the level of the upper circle, you can see an open hatch with a modern TV antenna extended from there, and on the right side of the ball there are two clearly distinguishable hands with spread fingers.The five floating figures accompanying the ball have their heads hidden under tight-fitting hoods, white with red dots or red with white specks. Are these colorful, eye-catching hoods, perhaps astronauts’ helmets? If our children were asked now, giving them a full set of colored pencils, to draw a flight to the moon as they imagine it, they would probably depict something very similar to the subjects of Tassili’s frescoes. After all, most likely, the “savages” who imprinted in their memory and then painted on the rocks the visit of the “gods” were at that time at the level of development of a modern child ”.
This mural from Jabbaren, Tassili, was hidden under a thick layer of shale dust. Can it be argued that the huge figures depicted on it are dressed in space jumpsuits? Henri Lot believes that “arrows from a bow with tufts of feathers on the head” are drawn here.
Daniken mentioned here the Frenchman Henri Lot. He is an outstanding scientist who published impressive results of his research in Tassili, in the central part of North Africa in the book “The Rock Carvings of the Sahara”.Daniken borrowed from this work many photographs, which he interprets in his book “Back to the Stars” in his own way: in the images he invariably sees aliens from space, and in one of the drawings he even saw the open hatch of an interplanetary ship. In the already cited critical article “Daniken and Prehistory” Herbert Kuhn points out that the oldest of the Tassili frescoes appeared in 8-6 millennia BC, the subsequent ones belong to later times, up to the present day.“The question arises again, what actually happened 10,000 years ago, when aliens from other worlds allegedly appeared on Earth? This is the era that, according to Daniken, is unknown to us. And it is she who chooses as the arena of miracles. But it is unfortunate for ourselves, because we know this time in sufficient detail. According to the 4000 known drawings made by people – contemporaries of the Ice Age, 4000 objects of art found in the earth, and even about 6000 carefully restored sites of prehistoric man, we have a fairly complete idea of the time from 40,000 to 10,000 BC.There are no gaps in it; the development of the culture of this era was not disturbed in any way. ”
But Daniken obviously knows better, although he knows nothing at all about the information that science now has.
Another quote from Memories of the Future complements what was said: “It should be clear: we are not going to question the history of the last two millennia! We are talking only and exclusively about the gray-haired antiquity, about those times hiding in the darkness of years, which we are trying to rethink, only by posing questions in a new way …
Left: Australian Aboriginal drawings.Right: depiction of the Japanese “kappa” or “reed man” – 8th century AD. NS. There are many legends about him. He supposedly could fly through the air at incredible speed.
We can not give any numbers or dates when extraterrestrial intelligence began to influence the young human mind. But we dare to doubt the dates established by scientists regarding hoary antiquity! We have good enough reasons to claim that the event in question took place during the Early Paleolithic, that is, between 40,000 and 10,000 years.Modern dating methods, including radiocarbon dating, leave much to be desired when it comes to periods more than 10,000 years ago. The older the object under study, the more unreliable its radiocarbon dating becomes.
Professor Kuhn, however, calls Daniken’s reasoning about the possibilities of the radiocarbon method “groundless.” Since Daniken has nothing to object to this, he embarks on general discussions.
“The Ice Age has fascinated me throughout my life,” emphasizes Herbert Kuhn, who has written many scientific books about him.Before attacking scientists in this field, Daniken should have armed himself with accurate knowledge.
Of the 120 known caves with prehistoric painting, Professor Kuhn writes, Daniken speaks of only one, namely the Lascaux cave near Montignac (Dordogne department, southern France), which was discovered in 1940. The walls of this cave are dotted with drawings and reliefs of the Ice Age. “And then he raises two questions that sound completely childish.” Let us cite these questions here as they are asked in the book “Memories of the Future”: “In the Lascaux cave in the south of France, the most magnificent drawings of the Stone Age were found.This picture gallery amazes us so much with its freshness, plasticity and integrity of images that two questions inevitably arise: how was the cave illuminated during the painstaking work of the Stone Age masters and why are the walls of the cave decorated with this amazing painting? ”
“On these issues, one can immediately understand that the author has not the slightest idea of the century-old scientific research in the field of ice age art,” says the devastating conclusion of the ancient history specialist Kühn.”But his method of discussion is attack.”
“Let the people who think these questions are stupid, Daniken continues,“ explain to us such a contradiction: if the cave dwellers of the Stone Age were primitive and wild, then they could not have created such striking paintings on the walls of the caves. But if the savage was able to paint such a picture, why couldn’t he build himself a comfortable and secure shelter? The smartest people admit that birds and animals have been building nests, holes, dens for themselves over millions of years.However, our thinking system does not want to allow such an ability in Homo sapiens of that period! ”
“Everything is wrong in these phrases,” says Professor Kuhn. – If Daniken made the minimum effort to leaf through any book on Ice Age art, let alone read it, he would know that there are about a hundred Ice Age lamps known. A particularly beautiful lamp was found just in the Lascaux cave, which he named ”.
One of 100 Ice Age lamps from Lascaux Cave (Southern France).It served as a source of light for Stone Age artists while painting caves with paintings – a cult celebrating a successful hunt.
Answering Daniken’s other question – why the walls of the cave are decorated with such amazing drawings, Kühn refers to S. Reinach’s explanation, made back in 1903: this is a hunting religion, hunting magic.
Daniken has no idea “about the finds of dwellings of people of the Ice Age. They have been known for about a hundred years, many of them have been perfectly preserved. “
Again and again Daniken throws his accusations against professional scientists. If scientists, constrained, according to Daniken, by stubbornness and prejudice, pass over in silence the statements of the science fiction writer, this does not mean at all that Daniken is right and they have nothing to answer.
“I am not happy to attack,” confesses Professor Kühn, “but what Daniken claims goes beyond all limits … he uses photographs from my book When the Stones Talk” and claims that they depict astronauts; however, if he had bothered to read the text, it would have become clear to him that the photographs belong to the post-glacial period. “As for the drawings discovered in the United States in the state of California, which Daniken uses to strengthen his conclusions, they date, according to Kuhn, our millennium.
The image of a deity with an ornament on his head from Val Camonica in Northern Italy makes Daniken suspect even here, isn’t he an astronaut? ”
But what is the image really? Deity decorated with deer horns. His arms are raised, one of them is wrapped by a snake. In this, as Professor Kuhn emphasizes, the Celtic and Etruscan influence is felt, “weapons and jewelry are evidence of it.”The drawing appeared probably between 500 and 250 BC, that is, during the times of Greek and Roman culture, “known to us from the records of all important events.” Cernunnos is the name of the deity whose symbol was the deer. We meet with him on another find – a silver bowl from Gundestrup (Denmark), where he is also depicted with deer horns on his head and an arm entwined with a snake. This silver bowl was created either in the first century BC, that is, in the era of Emperor Augustus, or even in the first century AD – a well-known historical period for scientists! To see an astronaut with an antenna in a rock painting from Val Caponica is at least to interpret facts lightly and irresponsibly.“The drawing belongs to a certain historical era, and yet, according to Daniken, it depicts the arrival of astronauts. But after all, according to the fantastic version of Daniken, they should have arrived on Earth between 40,000 and 10,000 BC.
But Daniken attacks scientists not only with the help of rock carvings. He claims that Egypt also has no reliably known ancient history. There is no greater untruth than this. The history of Egypt is especially well known, and a huge number of books tell about it.Daniken doesn’t take it into account ”.
Perhaps the historian Kuhn has found us the best way to deal with Daniken’s ravings: “Laughter liberates. If you can laugh heartily, then this, like nothing else, will help to get rid of Daniken’s books.
Still, it is difficult to understand why such a huge number of people … buy them. When you ponder what is the reason, you come to the conclusion that I have already mentioned: “We are dealing with scientific facts.” It is the disguise as science that captivates us, as well as the desire for a miracle hidden in this “scientific” package.
What to do?
Such books should not be regarded as scientific treatises … Let us recall “Iovsiad” by Karl Kortum (1784) or Wilhelm Busch (1874): a certain candidate Iovs appeared before the examiners. They ask him a lot of questions, and to each he answers with fiction. Both of these books by Daniken must be considered fiction. ”
“He has never been in a dungeon”: fan_project – LiveJournal
“Der Spiegel”: Mr. Morich, in his early book Erich von Daniken claims that he, together with you in Ecuador, descended into the mysterious world of caves.Morich: Daniken has never been to the caves, except that he was launched there by aliens on a flying saucer.
Der Spiegel: He writes that you allegedly showed him in the caves a prehistoric library engraved on metal sheets, a whole zoo of gold, a hall with a table and chairs.
Moric: If he claims that he personally saw the library and other items, then this is a lie. This is extremely dishonorable on his part. We did not show him these items. He distorts even with photographs: the picture on page 15 of his book “Sowing and Space” was taken by our expedition back in 1969; The picture shows an underground corridor washed with water.The amulet on page 20 was not at all found by me in the cave, as he writes.
SPIEGEL: So where did he get all this? Morich: I told him everything. He interrogated me for hours, days. He demanded more and more details. He even offered me $ 200,000 if I showed him the caves.
According to Moric, the expedition to the caves in eastern Ecuador would have lasted at least fourteen days. But since Daniken was in Ecuador for only a week, Moric only led him to one side entrance to the so-called “underworld”.
“In two days we drove with him in a jeep to Cuenca and there we showed him one of the many cave entrances. But through this entrance it was impossible to enter the cave: it was filled up. Daniken can lie to him as much as he wants, but I have no intention of doing it. ” But the discoveries themselves, allegedly made by Juan Moric, do not carry more extensive information. After all, answering the question of the editor of Der Spiegel, did he go through this entire giant system of tunnels, located in the bowels of the huge mountain range of the Andes, Moric admitted: “No, but I saw the entrances to this system.My idea of it is based on the content of myths and legends. ” When asked if these tunnels could be of natural origin, he replied that many of the caves arose as a result of water erosion, while others, on the contrary, are of artificial origin. But who did this gigantic job in the latter case? Are they really aliens from another planet, as Daniken seeks to convince his readers?
Morich has another, no less curious explanation: in the mythology of the Quechua Indians, a mysterious beetle is known that supposedly broke through these caves.But during one of the expeditions, namely in 1969, when Moric, at the head of a detachment of seventeen people, walked through the jungle from the Rio Santiago River (eastern province of Ecuador – Morona Santiago) to the caves of Cuevas de los Tayos, they are in the very actually came across one artificial cave. “Having squeezed through a narrow passage, washed with water, we suddenly found ourselves in a huge hall with a height of at least 80 meters. The walls inside were smooth, as if polished, and there were steps on the floor. ” Morich called it “the cave of the high priest.”But there are no treasures in it, except perhaps a meter layer of bird droppings and stalactites and stalagmites, usual for karst caves. Plus, according to survey engineer Augustine Paladines of the National Geology and Mining Authority, this and other caves in the east of the country certainly arose naturally. This opinion is shared by many geologists. Thus, for example, the West German cave researcher, physicist Dr. Herbert W. Franke, sees in the “tunnel system” of interest to us a typical bed of a dry underground river.And in Germany, in the Swabian Alps, you can find similar cavities in the zone of distribution of the Jurassic limestone formation. The priest of the Josephine monastic order, professor of archeology at the Catholic University of Quito (Ecuador), Porras, who in more than a quarter of a century discovered at least a dozen caves in eastern Ecuador, did not find in them the slightest trace of the activity of intelligent beings. “Absolutely nothing, no processed stones, no cave painting, no clay shards, not even soot on the walls.”And in the Archaeological Museum of Quito there is not a single exhibit that would have been found in the limestone caves of the east of the country.
But the “scientist” Morich did not say a single word about all this in his conversation with “Der Spiegel”. Surely he had something else on his mind. After all, when asked whether he was in a huge hall with a height of at least 80 meters, where Daniken allegedly discovered and so enthusiastically praised a metal library, he confessed:
“No, she. in another cave, about 30 kilometers from here. “
“Did you get there during your 1969 expedition?”
“No, we ran out of food then.”
“When did you see the library for the first time?”
“This I cannot say, because, having learned this date, someone will be able to establish where I was at that time and reveal the location of the cave.”
How did you find the library?
“They brought me there”.
“Who was your guide?”
“I cannot open this.”
“Is the golden zoo in the same place as the library?”
“Well, actually, this is not a zoo, but exact copies of plants and animals, similar to those that, judging by the Chronicle  Inca Garcilaso de Vega, were once there, for example, in the imperial gardens in Cuzco.Besides, I cannot say that they are really made of pure gold. Maybe just gilded. ”
“Have you counted the sheets of the metal library?” – “Does Daniken correctly indicate their dimensions – 96×48 cm?”
“No, I can’t say how many sheets there are, but I didn’t have a ruler.”
“In what language, in your opinion, can there be records on these sheets?”
“Perhaps the signs refer to the culture of the lost Atlantis.”
“Did you manage to decipher these signs?”
“I believe it is possible, but I was not there for long.”
“How then do you know that the history of mankind is recorded on the sheets in chronological order, as you say in your statement, certified by the notary Gustovo Falconi?”
“My guide told me so.”
“Why didn’t you take at least one sheet with you?”
“That would mean certain death. The keepers of these treasures do not allow them to be taken away. ”
“Are these Indians of the wild Hivaro tribe?”
“No, they are nice people. This is one tribe called “Belas”.They are superior beings. White Indians with light eyes. When someone enters their domain, they force the alien to stay with them until the end of his days. ”
“How did you manage to get away from them?”
“Well, there are exceptions …”
