Erich von Däniken Tweets Out Bombshell Claim
In a bombshell tweet seven hours ago, Erich von Däniken claimed to have seen extraterrestrial skulls in Paracas, Peru. Erich von Däniken is best known from his role on the hit TV show Ancient Aliens. He also authored the world famous book, Chariots of the Gods which gave birth to the Ancient Aliens theory.
Erich von Däniken believes extraterrestrials or “ancient astronauts” visited Earth and influenced early humans.
The theory of ancient extraterrestrial visitors inhabiting the Earth in the past and being uncovered as mummies is a hot topic in the UFO community after a 2017 viral video claimed to show an extraterrestrial mummy uncovered in Peru. The so-called alien mummy was never scientifically verified.
The tweet by Erich von Däniken was published at 3:01 PM on February, 11 2018. Originally written in German the English translation reads:
“Today I saw a thousand-year-old collection of skulls. Including certainly some et’s. (picture) where? In Paracas/Peru”
Here’s the tweet from Erich von Däniken’s personal Twitter Account:
Heute sah ich eine jahrtausende alte Sammlung von Schädeln. Darunter mit Sicherheit auch einige ET‘s. (Bild) Wo? In Paracas/Peru pic.twitter.com/maXWx7lEq6

Prehistoric Treasures In Paracas, Peru
Located on Peru’s west coast, Paracus is a town best known for it’s beaches. Paracus is home to the Ballestas Islands where Humboldt penguins live.
A massive prehistoric geoglyph, called the Paracas Candelabr, is located on the Paracas Peninsula.
Erich von Däniken’s Ancient Alien Theory
Erich von Däniken has published several books that provide an explanation for his Ancient Astronaut theory.
Monolithic structures such as the Mayan Pyramids, Egyptian Pyramids, Stonehenge, and others around the world were construction projects too complicated for human builders of the past. Erich von Däniken believes the structures were constructed with the help of an alien race that brought advanced technology to Earth.
These alien beings and their vehicles, he says, are depicted in artwork found throughout the world and even are mentioned in the Christian Bible’s Old Testament.
Erich von Däniken believes religions were originated from contact with these alien beings.
Where’s The Evidence?
Unfortunately the tweet was not accompanied by any scientific evidence, or evidence at all, of the claim made.
A frustrated Twitter user responded with the following, “How do you know that for sure? Have they been scientifically investigated? If so, sources and not just guesses!”
Here’s the response originally written in German:
Woher willst du das mit Sicherheit wissen? Wurden sie wissenschaftlich Untersucht? Wenn ja, Quellen und nicht bloss Vermutungen!
