And even NASA understands the value of algae in supporting human life for long periods of time. Given that, who knows what some may find hidden in other ancient writings which have also been dismissed as myths? Personally, as something of a weapons authority, I can easily see through some of the ancient descriptions of alien air battles to discern weapons we would today label as laser rays, submunition dispensers, nuclear warheads, guided missiles, etc. And I would contend per my flight understanding of aerodynamics that some of those trinkets which are seemingly birdlike are in fact viable airplane designs. And you don't even have to take my word on that because some engineers actually built scale models of some of those trinkets and found them to fly quite well.
Perhaps what is really needed to convince the skeptics is merely some recognition and endorsement of findings made to date for what they actually appear to be from persons of prominent scientific reputation? It would be easy for them to start by simply reviewing the AA tapes and picking projects from there to study and evaluate. For example, they could go examine ancient alleged aircraft runways and landing platforms.
Sadly, most of the professionals that could do this avoid doing it in fear of the treatment they would receive from peers and superiors. In today's world, being funded is everything. Few scientists would dare to risk the consequences. Everyone would rather play safe and leave the job to someone else. Thus we continue to wait ...
I'm not familiar with any 'algae' machine related to the Ark of the Covenant (which was how they spoke to God and also contained the tablets) that the Hebrews used in the desert but 'manna' allegedly fell from heaven....do you have a link to this algae idea?
Air battles from myths and allegories are certainly open to the interpretation one wants to use and again which trinkets mentioned in the Bible or in other myths were built by modern engineers?
I know one engineer drew a design, which ended up looking like a bizarre helicopter, from the Exekiel event that he felt was described in the Bible.
I still don't see any solid tangible evidence to explore or a good place to start.
The Nazca lines have been looked at by many and nothing has been found to indicate aliens used it as a landing site though one can interpret it that way if they like.
And that's the problem with all of the ancient alien 'evidence'. It's not evidence of aliens per se unless one wants to interpret it that way.
I honestly don't think that reexamining these myths etc will tell us anything more and will not prove ancient aliens. We need something solid for people to take it seriously.
What I did find interesting a few years back was the original work done on what was called Junk Genes found in the human genome. These genes did not seem to code for anything and it seemed like they were extra material. A Boston genetic expert who was involved with the genome project and other related work used Zipf's Law on these junk genes as well as on the regular genetic coded genes and he found that the junk genes acted as a 'language' regarding Zipfs law but not with the regular genes. Zipf's law applies to all human languages and basically states that all languages have a definte ratio showing patterns of words used most in any language. This geneticist found it interesting but not sure if it meant anything. He joked once to some friends in the field that maybe aliens had used these junk genes to hide a message to us so when we we evolved enough we could read it.
Nothing ever came of this from what I have read and not too long ago they have discovered that they aren't really junk genes and do code for certain functions in humans.
I wish I could find that article but it was several years ago and I didn't bookmark it.
Here are some links on this idea...a Google search brings up others.
links that actually talk about alien codes:
