	My father, for many years the chairman of the Applied Physics
department at Columbia University, read Chariots of the Gods, and
commented that it seemed to make a lot of sense to him, except in the
areas of physics, where von Daniken had a lot of concepts that were
completely wrong. A chemistry professor told him that the book made a
lot of sense, except in the area of chemistry, where EvD was completely
wrong. Curious, my father discussed the book with professors from many
different departments, and received similar answers from all of them.

	There are many areas where science (which can be defined as the study
of that which can be measured) conflicts with common sense. Apparently
much of EvD's theories depend on disprovable common sense.
