Take a close look of that picture above. He was Pakal the Great, ruler of the Maya polity of Palenque in the Late Classic period of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican chronology. During a long reign of some 68 years Pakal was responsible for the construction or extension of some of Palenque's most notable surviving inscriptions and monumental architecture. He reigned sometimes around the 7th century BCE.
Well, need I point it out? Can't interpret the picture? Well, according to Von Daniken, that dude is doing some controlling in his spaceship with the computer and he is doing some typing and it does look like somekind of spaceship. I mean look at the fire coming out of the back. So, unbelievable right?
Oh and guess what? Thomas Alva Edison didn't invent electricity. Electricity has been among us since few centuries after Jesus was born.
And again, unbelievably, there are lots of cave paintings, manuscripts, artifacts, ancient writings that describes astronauts, spaceships, or aliens. You just can't believe how much ancient description/pictures are there of astronauts and aliens thingy.
There are also, architectures that are so "modern", infact beyond our technologies today that seems so "impossible" to be done long ago without "help". The Giza Pyramid, Pumpapunku, Stonehenge, Moai of Easter Island, and way much more.

The origins of many religions are interpreted by von Däniken as reactions to encounters with an alien race. According to his view, humans considered the technology of the aliens to be supernatural and the aliens themselves to be gods. Von Däniken claims that the oral and written traditions of most religions contain references to alien visitors in the way of descriptions of stars and vehicular objects travelling through air and space. One such is Ezekiel's revelation in the Old Testament, which Däniken interprets as a detailed description of a landing spacecraft.
My opinion? Well I think this might be true, though well- who knows for sure? This is a mystery. But, I stand true to my beliefs and religion. But though maybe, some ancient civilization might be fooled by an intelligent being imposed as Gods. But, then again- who knows?
