Yet they are simply the moon and the sun, in the positions they appear in the Bible's written description of the Crucifixion of Jesus......in a painting called "The Crucifixion of Jesus" .

Why would Giotto, or Michelangelo or any other Christian artist , 1000 years later, paint "alien lizards", instead of the moon and sun, in his painting the "Crucifixion of Jesus" and get arrested for heresy. Why not just paint a picture of the alien lizards on their own?

Not sure, but you seem to mean that the Bible never sez 'spasecraft'.

Bekuz they had no consept uv spase ships or any advansed teknolojy. This iz the basis for the entire debate - are portionz uv the Bible accounts uv alien vizitation az interpretted by low-tek humanz?

So why aliens in particular? Why should we believe that they are extraterrestrial and not just something from around here?
Good kwestion.

It seemz unlikely that we woud not hav stumbled across a hidden sivilization by now. Even a fallen wun, like in the Atlantis story woud hav left tonz uv fizikl evidens.

It iz possible a sivilization coud hav developed the tek to hide themselvez, but if youre offering that az an alternativ to extraterrestrialz, wuts the point?

I liv in Wauconda and I can verify there iz no futuristic tek here. Sertainly no impenitrable invizability dome like Black Panther'z Wakanda.

The Bible story specifically says the "Sun" and the "Moon". I quoted it. That's why we know they are the sun and the moon. :D

You do realise the whole point of the crucifixion story was the moon blocking out the sun? It would be a odd painting of the crucifixion if the artist left the sun and the moon out, but included alien flying saucers that no one mentioned in the Bible.......don't you think? :D

There was pen and paper in 36 ad. By todays conventions, we call that ocher with stylus and papyrus. Same thing. If anyone drew Jebus, its been lost to history until the next round of found documents shows up. It strikes me like UFO's in medieval paintings, once we find a label, its easy to find Matticisms everywhere we look.

You can't can you. It is that simple.

As you are a true idiot, you also didn't realise that the image of the cross also didn't exist until after 200AD. All the imagery in the renaissance paintings, more than a thousand years later, are based on the narrative of the Bible. :lol: :lol: :lol:

HAH!!!! Well there is Matticism No2: Never answering a direct question instead of clearing up an obvious ambiguity, go for the personal insult and change the subject instead. Not well done, as much as too much Matt.

You cannot draw images of flying saucers with a stylus. It is for writing words, you complete idiot.

Soooooo you are unable to find one example of an eyewitness drawing from Jerusalem in 36 AD. I already knew that.

Have you two geniuses worked out that the renaissance painters in 1300 AD in Europe weren't actually in Jerusalem in 36AD? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I didn't know that. Can you confirm: a stylus can write a word but cannot make an image? What is the inhibiting issue? Is this another Matticism? Tell me it ain't so???

We used to have an excellent beer pub in my neighborhood. It had a 2 x 20 ffoot Egyptian hieroglyph over the Bar from 5ooo years ago which was a recipe for brewing beer.

So why did you lie and claim these eyewitness drawings (which don't exist) actually exist?

Why do you claim a painting of the sun and the moon, specifically mentioned and called the sun and the moon in the Bible narrative is actually a flying saucer?

] Firstly hieroglyphs are not eyewitness drawings, you complete idiot. They are words copied by scribes. Secondly, The sun and the moon in renaissance paintings are not hieroglyphs but paintings of the sun and the moon.

What tools were used to make hieroglyphics?
Stone workers in ancient Egypt used hand-held stone tools for carving text, which were replaced in later eras with implements of copper, bronze and finally iron after 1000 B.C. The ancient Egyptians used brushes and pens made from reeds to write on papyrus paper.

We only know about what we find in the tombs. We know next to nothing about the day to day life of the average Egyptian.

Unlikely. The Pharoahs told the story they wanted to be portrayed. Probably nothing like the real story. History means "His Story."

The daily life in ancient Egypt was actually much different than the vision that commonly comes to mind. Relics found in archaeological digs as well as paintings and drawings on pyramid and tomb walls depict images of life in ancient Egypt that was, in some regards, not that much different than life in Egypt today.

Again this is complete crap. The wall reliefs in mausoleums included the everyday workers who would look after the deceased in the after life. Here is a scribe with his hot wax tablet and stylus.

We've excavated the villages where the quarry workers lived while working on the public works. We know how much beer they got each day.

That's BS. What you see is what someone wanted people to see. It's no more realistic than learning about the Pleistocene by watching the Flintstones.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

THE GREATEST "BS" STORY EVER TOLD by Jo753 and Bobbo
Once upon a time in 36AD, a Palestinian scribe just happens to be walking through the execution hill for Jesus and other criminals, carrying his wet clay plate and stylus. Although all the other witnesses note and write that they saw the moon blacking out the sun, our scribe doesn't notice this but notices two spaceships flying behind Jesus and the other criminals. Our scribe magically draws an "eyewitness picture" using a tool for writing words on the clay.

"I will never write this down or tell anyone for 1350 years" says the scribe. "I will leave my clay tablet for an Italian painter, in Europe, 2000 miles away, who can't speak Aramaic, so they will copy my drawings and include them in a Renaissance painting of the "Crucifixion of Jesus".

Thankfully, Michelangelo, 1314 years later, who had never been to Palestine found the clay tablet and included paintings of the space ships. When the Pope asked "Where is the sun and the moon, that signifies the death of Jesus, in the painting I commissioned?" Michelangelo, replied "Well,....i found this magical clay tablet with weird letter drawings on it, that I can't read, so I used that for inspiration .

Next week our new story will be
