Same here... just not enough time to keep up with it all There are also a lot of UFO's in old paintings. I find it funny that the religious skeptics use their 'myth' to debunk the UFO myth. Neither can be proven yet so it is funny. Now some of them are things like bishop's hats, but a few like this one bear considering
This is one of my favorite... because the artist put a man and his dog both looking up at the UFO. many parts of old scriptures can easily be interpreted as UFO's especially bearing in mind the mindset and fears of those days. Demons or Greys... Angels or Pleadian Princess... it's really a matter of what your frame of reference is all about
"Madonna col Bambino e San Giovannino"
(Madonna and Child with the Infant Saint John)
Attributed to Sebastiano Mainardi or Jacopo del Sellaio
Here is another one with the Shepard looking up
"Adoration of the Child with St. Benedict and Angels" (c 1480)
And this one... Just what did these artists think about?
"Battesimo di Cristo" 1710

You can try to debunk them saying they are 'religious' symbols, but what is the difference between the belief in religion basewd on beings NOT OF THIS EARTH (therefore true ET's) or the modern 'religion' of UFOlogy?
I see none... neither have been proven true yetedit on 2-3-2011 by zorgon because: (no reason given)edit on 2-3-2011 by zorgon because: (no reason given)

Alexander The Great.
Alexander the Great records two great silver shields, spitting fire around the rims in the sky that dived repeatedly at his army as they were attempting a river crossing. The action so panicked his elephants, horses, and men they had to abandon the river crossing until the following day.
One day suddenly there appeared over the Macedonian camp these
"flying shields", as they had been called, which flew in
triangular formation led by an exceedingly large one, the others
were smaller by almost a half. In all there were five. The
unknown chronicler narrates that they circled slowly over Tyre
while thousands of warriors on both sides stood and watched them
in astonishment. Suddenly from the largest "shield" came a
lightning-flash that struck the walls, these crumbled, other
flashes followed and walls and towers dissolved, as if they had
been built of mud, leaving the way open for the besiegers who
poured like an avalanche through the breeches. The "flying
shields" hovered over the city until it was completely stormed
then they very swiftly disappeared aloft, soon melting into the
For a start, he was not "attempting to cross the river Indus". In fact, he was crossing the Jaxartes River (now known as the Syr Darya) to do battle with the nomadic Scythians (aka Sacae) in what became the famous Battle of Jaxartes, famous for his use of a well-disciplined battalion of mounted spearmen.

For a summary of Alexander's Asian campaigns, complete with map, see here:
He didn't reach the Indus river until 326 BC, where he had to fight Porus, the local Punjab king, on the banks of the Hydaspes River (now called the river Jhelum, a tributary of the river Indus).
The Indians were outnumbered and outclassed by the Macedonian army. However, Porus still had one dangerous weapon: the elephants, an army unit that the Macedonians had never encountered before.
