Abstract:

"Could extraterrestrials have really come to Earth thousands of years ago? Did they bequeath humanity its first civilizations? Were there "ancient astronauts"? For nearly half a century, a flurry of books, movies, and television shows (with more cropping up each year) have said yes, over the objections of scientists, educators, and archaeologists." "In The Cult of Alien Gods, author Jason Colavito reveals for the first time that the theory that aliens visited Earth in the ancient past - and may even have genetically engineered humankind - began not as science fact but as science fiction in the work of master horror writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937). This comprehensive survey examines Lovecraft's body of work as well as his influence on maverick historians, occultists, pop culture, and a modern UFO cult trying to clone a human being an orders from the "aliens."" "From flying saucers to lost civilizations, The Cult of Alien Gods also explores the decline of reason and the dramatic challenges that rocked science over the past century. Lovecraft created the first ancient-astronaut story in 1926, and the saga of how his fictional aliens - his "sheer fun"--Became a powerful threat to mainstream science rivals the ancient-astronaut theory itself for sheer outrageous improbability. Only, this story is true."--Jacket.
