      It is believed that depictions of Isis with the infant Cult of alien gods book influenced Christian imagery of Mary with the infant Jesus. Please inform me: clore columbia-center. All well and good but then in the lates which was later translated into English Eric von Daniken wrote Chariot of the Gods that popularised the notion that UFOs had been visiting us throughout history and that in the past these visiting aliens had been mistaken for gods. But Colavito's scholarship is lacking even on more well-known aspects of science-fiction history. Anyway back on the subject at hand, I've always had the impression that the 'We' and 'Us' in Genesis were just uses like the 'Royal We', and not really indicative of multiple gods, though I can see how it might be interpreted that way.

      On the other cult of alien gods book a genre with its seductive elements as SF, can be nefariously used for economic gain at the expense of rational thought, the gullible, and genuine understanding of phenomena and history, and so the genre has its dark side. This is one of the early film influences for the sci-fi horror genre as earth makes contact with an alien space ship that crash lands on Mars and they go there to rescue the lone female survivor, only to discover that she is an alien that feeds on blood. If science fiction has value in instilling a sense of wonder and in encouraging some to study, and even go on and have a career in science or technology, then surely this is no bad thing. As the wife of the god of the underworld, Isis was also one of the main deities concerned with rites for the dead.

      There are a lot of sekret machines to keep track of, after all. Those 39 they could not wait. Even so, it is a legitimate Fortean question to wonder whether there was some pivotal work, or works, of speculative fiction that triggered this wave of pseudo-fact? For without realizing it, he seems to have stumbled upon the real source of the ancient-astronaut theme in popular culture.
