In the OP this is mentioned as evidence that these particular "Gods" are not divine.
They made the gods seem human not because they were humanoid aliens but because it was human beings who were making up the gods to begin with.
Yes, the two major versions are well-known:
Religion: "These Gods were Divine. Lets worship them"
Atheism/Academia: "The Gods were Human / Fantasy"
Ancient-Astronaut-Theory offers something in between, something that matches their behavior which is neither divine nor human.
Arrow's existed at the time and they did sometimes whistle I'm sure;
So the question is what do these similarities mean, that great myth writers think a like or that true miracles (conducted by gods/aliens) are taking
place? Can we truly ever know for sure?
We cant know for sure. But we also cant know for sure that its all just "made up" as you say.
It makes much more sense that what spawned the myth was our imagination
...that all these cultures from around the globe essentially told the same fictitious story? You see, thats what I doubt. Hence this research.
There's no need for it to be real or taken literally.
No? The ancients told us what is fiction and what is history (see for example the Korean myths from Part 1).
You echo the predominant view of modern Academia, which sounds reasonable and all...but there are some holes in that view.
Want to know what I think caused de-evolution? State-Sponsored religion.
Modern Academia which is antagonistic towards Religion if I may add...and from this antagonism has formed a view of ridicule toward all texts
mentioning Gods...thereby filtering out what the texts actually
The idea of historical accounts being fiction comes from the 16th to 19th Century in which flight and space-travel was considered impossible
Do you think the rays that caused them to hide in the caves could have been better explained by meteor strikes
If they would have meant meteor strikes, wouldnt they have said "balls of fire" rather than rays coming from a flying disc?
