How is it falsifying biblical theology? The gods, angels, Jesus were all physical beings who traveled around in physical crafts. They traveled around
the earth, and from the earth to the stars and back in physical flying craft.
Ezekiel described a physical, flying machine with moving mechanical parts. And that physical flying machine created physical effects in the
atmosphere, and audio effects that Ezekiel could hear.
Enoch was taken by spacecraft and flown around the world, then taken up into space and shown the sun, moon, stars, the earth, their orbits, the
What about when "god" descended on Mt. Sinai in great smoke and fire causing the ground to quake? He told Moses to make a perimeter around the
chariot (ship), and to let no one touch the chariot. For if they did, whether they be man or animal, they would be killed.
"God" descended from the stars in a physical craft, which caused physical effects in the atmosphere (smoke and fire), and caused physical effects on
the ground (ground quaking/shaking).
Our former space shuttle did the exact same thing:
If a man or animal went near the space shuttle, they would be killed because there was usually something burning like imaged above. There was also a
perimeter around the space shuttle so that nobody could go near it for security and safety reasons.
When the space shuttle lifts off, it creates smoke and fire, and makes the ground quake.
There's nothing "false" about discussing the physical craft that the gods, angels, Jesus flew around in. If "god" was an all-powerful,
all-knowing, all-seeing, omnipotent being, he wouldn't need a physical craft to fly around in, would he?
Our creators used science and technology to genetically create us in their own likeness and image. Artificially inseminated Mary. And stored DNA
samples of every living thing on a spacecraft called the "Ark".
To the OP: fantastic thread with some amazing images. Although the wheels would make for a bumpy ride and don't seem logistical, everything else
seems like it could be a real and actual craft.
You may have actually invented a new craft for humankind in the near future. I love the idea of using rocket engines to slow the craft down after
entering the atmosphere, then using individual rotor blades (like a quad-copter) to guide the craft through the atmosphere.
