Critics of the theory emerged throughout the 1970s, discrediting Von Daniken's theory to arguments that scientists and historians should seriously consider the possibility that extraterrestrial contact occurred during recorded history.

The girls might have, say, watched things like Sixteen Candles a few too many times, clueless to the reality that there are so many amazing Asian men (and, in my case, Chinese men 😉 ) out there.
