There are some puzzles that remain for me, Dave.

The gold airplane found in Central America proved to be over a
thousand years old. The wooden model found in an Egyptian Tomb.


Each is of course is said to be copies of birds or perhaps
butterflies; ignoring the fact that not one bug or bird on the planet
has a vertical stabilizer, with horizontal stabilizers as well.

One culprit might fit the bill, a certain species of the flying fish:


The gold trinket is a delta winged artefact and has a cockpit and a
windshield right where it should be.

Paintings and wood cuttings from hundreds and thousands of years
ago remain to haunt us with depictions of objects flying through
the skies without the usual angel appearance.

Archaeology is constantly coming up with evidence of human
occupation of the Americas long before the ancestors of the
Indians showed up.

3,000 year old Egyptian mummies with cocaine in their remains as
well as tobacco. Where did the banana come from? Who dug the
tributaries on the Amazon River? Once thought to be natural even
though they are straight, they now find that many were dug and
are not natural.

From space one can see huge tracts of the Brazilian jungle was
once cultivated and irrigated. Estimated population of that
area; 99 million several thousands of years ago.

Lots of mysteries. Few answers.
