    Oppenheimer quoted the Mahabarrat after the Trinity test.

    "I am become death, destroyer of worlds"

    If you look at some of the very old writings, it can make you wonder if there was a previous great civilisation that somehow failed.

    Or more recent civilizations were clairvoyant.

    I like the Incan hot-air balloon explanation for huge symbols drawn in the Nazca desert of Peru.
    Balloons require the fewest high-tech, high-pressure, high-precision parts.

    What is curious to me is what the little group of objects on and about the horizontal stabilizer would be?

    It's a coincidence of shape and pattern. If you want to see an aircraft, you can find similar shapes when you have several thousand years of history to comb through. You could probably find artifacts that resemble a bored teenager on a cell phone, or power tools, or a laptop if that's what you want to see.

    The Indian one has a shape that almost resembles a helicopter, except that large notch in the middle. I guess you could say there's another aircraft shape, but it's a stretch. The text accompanying it is just pure new-age bullshit.

    The detailed Quimbaya ones look more like a fish coupled with a bird. The most common "plane" looking one has those 4 posts that make me think there may have been something tied there or are there for another purpose.

    There would be massive amounts of evidence if either civilization actually had the technology and infrastructure needed to produce an engine capable of propelling either a helicopter or a short delta winged aircraft.

    I've been told there's proof that Amelia Earhart ended up going back in time after flying through a worm hole in the Bermuda triangle. The Incan people found her after she had washed ashore in South America. She eventually became a high priestess and taught them the mysteries of flight. Unfortunately the Incan people met their demise trying to get their aircraft made out of gold to fly. I know this is true because I read it on the Internet.

    Don't know if these are going to show, but you should be able to click on them.

    Perhaps the Incans found a helium geyser. Or their chemistry was advanced enough to make hydrogen. Didn't they draw rockets? Were those actually Hydrogen balloon mishaps?

    Most likely an offering to the sun god that was in the original artwork that they modified for the picture, some type of grain maybe?

    Naw, that’s the larval form of the alien that taught them about drones.
