Why do the responses to the abydos-picture always only refer to the helicopter? This is the correct wording for you: "The helicopter, submarine,
plane and tank on one single picture, are a mere coincidence".
undermines your point most effectively when he points out that if helicopters or saucers were actually a common occurence they would be on every stone
in Egypt, and they aren't. Sorry.
Who claimed they were a common occurence? Not me. I am claiming they were a rare occurence of "Gods" showing up once in awhile, often not even
staying for more than a brief visit.
You classify the word "myth" as a distraction - that's misleading, because it suggests myth making was not a deliberate literary movement -
Yes. The only problem is that "fiction" is usually labelled as such and "non-fiction" is usually labelled as such. Today and back then.
You are entitled to stick to your guns and I've no interest in trying to dissuade you. But I'm still struggling to see what the purpose of this
thread is other than to revive a debate that it seems to me you have already lost.
A few people have been telling me I ought to quit providing my case. Thanks for the suggestion, but I think I will pass on it.
There is so much more to discuss and to show on the topic, you cannot possible fit it into a tiny debate. And you know what? I am going to be showing
it and discussing it right here.
I dont see the point of people coming here suggesting that I quit talking about it and providing information as I and others see it.
I dont have the time today to provide more, but sure will. Why? Because all in all, and looked at from all sides, the "ancient astronaut theory" is
not a closed case just yet. There are plenty of serious and intelligent scientists out there who are STILL considering it.
