Robert Kirk (9 December 1644 – 14 May 1692) was a minister, Gaelic scholar and folklorist, best known for The Secret Commonwealth, a treatise on fairy folklore, witchcraft, ghosts, and the second sight, a type of extrasensory perception described as a phenomenon by the people of the Scottish Highlands. Folklorist Stewart Sanderson and mythologist Marina Warner call Kirk’s collection of supernatural tales one of the most important and significant works on the subject of fairies and second sight.

In Genesis there are strange references to ‘the sons of God’. No one knows precisely what is meant. In this book — its creation, interestingly, coinciding with von Daniken’s popular Chariots of the Gods — T. C. Lethbridge, distinguished Cambridge archaeologist and psychic explorer, argues a case that the ‘sons of God’ were advanced extraterrestrial beings, possibly from Mars, who colonized Earth during the Stone Age and gave rise to civilizations as we know it. The invaders were eventually stranded here after a ‘war in heaven’; this, again, is referred to directly in the Bible and was the subject of legend throughout the ancient world. One of the descendants of these superior orders, Lethbridge suggests, may have been the man who went so far as to call himself ‘son of God’ — Jesus of Nazareth.
And the purpose of the great prehistoric stone circles, pillars and mounds around the planet? Navigational beacons, perhaps, for spacecraft making exploratory voyages here. “There were giants in the earth in those days,” Genesis reminds us gnomically.
