It's tripe because you post this:

Wether they were real or not isnt the focus of the thread but instead to share stories and information about them so we can learn more about them and perhaps what they could have been.

in it and then immediately post two vids - right in the OP - that claim Vimanas are real.
That's tripe by definition.

Not the foodie definition, the flapdoodle definition.

To simplify:
You claim you want stories or myths and aren't concerned with the reality.
You post nothing whatsoever except claims for the reality of Vimanas (albeit someone else's claims of reality) while if someone else posts anything at all concerning the unreality, you cry "foul" and pretend innocence.

You can't have it both ways.

ATTENTION ALL

That will do thank you.

Let's not go further off topic about being off-topic.

Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean they are insulting you. And when you disagree with someone you don't have to get personal about it.

Play the ball not the player.

Thank you.

The ball here is deflated and barely worth the effort of pumping it back up to have a proper game with. I'm as in love with the idea of ancient aliens as anybody, but it doesn't mean I'm going to believe every ancient text describing a flying object was actually describing physical reality, rather than fanciful thinking.

Let's put it differently then: If you don't have anything of value or worthwhile to add to the discussion/thread, then move on to the next one.

So, there's nothing worthwhile in reminding those who believe in ancient flying machines that people back then thought that meteors were signs from the gods?

There are alot of ancient stories about flying heavens, similar to flying cities. I wonder is an ancient vimana could be the size of a city or even a planet for that matter. . . .

“The Pushpaka chariot that resembles the Sun and belongs to my brother was brought by the powerful Ravana; that aerial and excellent chariot going everywhere at will…. that chariot resembling a bright cloud in the sky … and the King [Rama] got in, and the excellent chariot at the command of the Raghira, rose up into the higher atmosphere.”

In Ramayana it is mentioned that Ravana abducted Sita and took her with him to Lanka in this Pushpaka vimana. The Pushpaka then landed at Werangantota in Lanka, the first place where Sita was brought to Lankapura. Weranganota in Sinhala language means the place of aircraft landing. The legend has it that Vishwakarma removed the part of burning matter from the sun to reduce its heat. The matter which was removed fell on earth and from this matter the Pushpaka vimana was created.

In Sri Lanka Pushpaka vimana in Sinhala language is known as Dandu Monara Yanthranaya or Large Peacock Machine.

Where exactly in the Ramayana does that text appear? I can't find that passage anywhere in the text of the actual Ramayana. Only on fringe sites.

sloka 6-7, page 1425, Valmiki Ramayana published by Geeta Press, Gorakpur, Uttar Pradesh, India).

Each part of Pushpak Viman made of gold is delightful to see. It was studded with precious stones including sapphires. Secret rooms inside are shining like silver. On the top of the aero plane the white silken flags designed with golden colored lotuses looked grandeur. Small bells hanged on a lace made of pearls and precious jewels on the Aero Plane provided a pleasant sound. The aircraft made by Viswa Karma (divine architect) looks like the tall Sumeru Hill with spacious rooms covered with silver and pearls. Floor was covered with wonderful crystals. The airplane houses an expensive throne studded with sapphires . It goes with the speed of mind and nothing stops in its way. Rama and Lakshman got surprised looking at the hill like huge aircraft stationed in front of them. (slokas 21- 30, pages 1426-1427). Number of Vanaras could be accommodated in the aircraft (sloka 13, page 1428). Vibhishan also joined the flight along with his ministers (sloka 25). When everyone boarded the swan like plane, it got airlifted with Rama's command (slokas 25-26). All Vanaras, Rukshyas, strong Rakshasas were comfortably seated without any inconvenience (sloka 27). On Rama's command, the aircraft lifted automatically into the air and then attained greater heights making sound (sloka 1, page 1429).


Or so it says on fringe sites lol....ill see if it can find a more direct reference in the actual texts

This comes from the Rig Veda however -



HYMN LVIII. Pūṣan.

1. LIKE heaven art thou: one form is bright, one holy, like Day and Night dissimilar in colour.
All magic powers thou aidest, self-depen. dent! Auspicious be thy bounty here, O Pūṣan.
2 Goat-borne, the guard of cattle, he whose home is strength, inspirer of the hymn, set over all the world;
Brandishing here and there his lightly. moving goad, beholding every creature, Pūṣan, God, goes forth.
3 O Pūṣan, with thy golden ships that travel across the ocean, in the air's mid-region,
Thou goest on an embassy to Sūrya, subdued by love, desirous of the glory.
4 Near kinsman of the heaven and earth is Pūṣan, liberal, Lord of food, of wondrous iustre,
Whom strong and vigorous and swiftlymoving, subdued by love, the Deities gave to Sūrya.

Well Thor god of thunder and lightning flew around in a sky chariot which could have been a kind of aircraft which rumbled like thunder, or produced sonic booms.

The quoted text from the Rig Veda appears to be authentic. I'd still like to see specific citation for the supposed quote from the Ramayana, though.

Interesting story out there on the net about a vimana being found, dunno if its true or not but its definatly interesting.

A couple of reports began resurfacing about an object that unnamed military scientists allege was discovered in a cave in Afghanistan sometime in 2010. According to these reports, a 5,000 year old Vimana was discovered entombed in a time well that had resulted in 8 troops disappearing, likely being incinerated. These reports have even suggested the Vimana is still activating, which is what caused the death of the soldiers as well as the disclosure that the original owner of the magical Vimana was none other than the ancient prophet Zoroaster.

It would not surprise me, if a genius from our recent past was able to build flying contraptions that have been lost in history. Nor surprise if the earth has harboured many advanced races that may have been wiped out by near extinction events (Toba catastrophe theory etc). Perhaps one day, someone will stumble on a find that will re-write all our history books,
