To play Devil's advocate for a moment...many of the "UFO"s in ancient art are actually misunderstood symbolism... (and known symbolic tools for
those in the area)... However, sure, there are some which defy explanation.
Still though, the argument is valid. The simple fact is that "flying saucers" became a household word before we were building them. In addition,
the ones we've built (and at least have footage of), are unweildy, unstable, and completely impractical...which is why we don't see fleets of them
over Iraq, and billions poured into programs like the Raptor.
The Nazi saucers like Vril, Shreiver, and Hannaubrecht (sp?) seem to be more flights of fantasy than real technical blueprints. It's possible some of
the experimental Horten craft was mistaken as UFOs, but again, there is still the problem of sightings prior to this, and not over Germany or it's
Furthermore, there are numerous sightings and footage of craft by credible witnesses, including law enforcement, military officers, etc. that show the
crafts exceeding any standard capabilities of human flight of the time (or even now).
The idea that ALL UFO sightings are simply misidentified test craft is a complete fallacy that even scientists would deny.
