Aerial assistance really has no bearing on the Nazca lines. The designs of the lines can only be appreciated and seen fully from the sky. The thought
is that whoever made the lines was advertising to someone flying in the sky in those days.
As for as the OP is concerned, I can see what you're trying to "debunk". However, there were still physical flying craft in the bible in the form of
clouds, chariots, furnaces, pillars, platforms, vessles, rolls.
In John 18:36, Jesus himself said:
"My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But my kingdom is
from another place."
Where and what other place could Jesus' kingdom possibly be? Christians will say "heaven" (the sky), but what's in the heavens/sky? Other stars and
If you take the bible literally without any thought, then you believe in giant flying rolls, flying pillars, flying furnaces, and flying chariots.
We know none of those things fly. But we do know that spacecraft fly. That's how the gods and angels ascended and descended from the heavens (sky).
For instance, in Exodus when "god" descends from the sky and lands, there was great smoke and fire associated with his landing, and the ground quaked.
And then in Exodus 19:12, "god" told Moses:
And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, "Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch
the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death."
Other bibles have removed "mount" and replaced it with "mountain". How do you go into
a mountain? Normally, we go onto
mountains. How do
you make a perimeter or border around a mountain? What part of the dirt or grass does a mountain end and begin? Why would "god" kill people for
touching the border or edge of a mountain?
Because that's not how the bible was supposed to be interpreted. The King James bible uses the word "mount" for a reason. A mount is "a means of
conveyance" (transportation). In this case, "god" descended from the sky in his mount, told Moses to make a perimeter around the mount, and anyone
that touched the mount would die, which is exactly what the King James version says.
A more literal translation would be that "god" descended from the sky in his spacecraft, told Moses to make a perimeter around the spacecraft and to
not let anyone touch the spacecraft or they would die, probably from radiation or heat related to the propulsion of the spacecraft.
Just as our space shuttle emits smoke and fire, and also makes the ground quake when it lifts off. Furthermore, you also cannot walk up to the space
shuttle when it's sitting on the launch pad and touch it because you would also likely be killed from the heat of what's being burned:
In the Book of Enoch, Enoch was taken into a chariot (spacecraft) by angels, flown around the world, and then taken up into space. He was shown the
moon, sun, stars, orbits of each. The seasons, number of days in a month/year, etc. I guess it all could've been a hologram or on a display panel
inside a ship, but Enoch explicitly states he was able to view the orbits of the earth, moon, etc. from far above the earth.
"God", Jesus, and the angels, were all physical beings who flew in physical craft, and likely from another world like Jesus himself has all but
