Hour 2 Erich von Däniken set off a firestorm in the late-’60s with the release of his classic Chariots of the Gods, which set forth the proposition that man had his origins in the stars and that his development has been aided by extraterrestrials. Where did von Däniken’s extraordinary notions come? He writes in the preface to the anniversary edition of Chariots of the Gods, “I come from a very Catholic family in Switzerland and my father decided that I would have a theologically-oriented education. So he enrolled 16-year old Erich at Collège St-Michel, a Jesuit boarding school in Fribourg, Switzerland. At that time, my conception of God was magnificent and simultaneously incomprehensible – and has remained so to this day. I always thought God – who or what that was – had to exhibit some minimum features. The true God would be flawless and could do no wrong. He would have to be omnipresent and need no vehicle to get from point A to point B. In particular, God would be timeless. God could not be something that did experiments and then must wait to see what resulted. Those were the thoughts my confused 16-year old brain had about God,” he writes.

Is there any topic more contentious in America in 2018 than immigration? Who should be let in? Who should be kept out? How many immigrants are too many? The U.S. is literally the melting pot of the world – is that a good thing or a bad ting? Even if you agree that certain countries are “shitholes,” aren’t the real problems the governments of those countries and the crushing weight of history rather than the people who yearn for a better life in America? Do we need a wall? What would it accomplish? Is anyone other than the American taxpayers — really — going to pay for it? What is DACA and who are the Dreamers? How do we block terrorists, criminals, and miscreants from penetrating our borders while welcoming who aspire to the American Dream?
