ISAIAH 60:9
What are these ships that skim along like clouds, like doves returning home?


Also read Ezekiel.

@Poseidon,
ISAIAH 60:9
9
Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

@Poseidon,
My vote is translation issue since I know how translation messes things up (I study ancient Greek).

@Poseidon,
The bible has a lot of weird things, I know there is one part that describes angels in a way that sounds very similar to machines or UFOs.

That's Ezekiel. Plenty of cool stuff in the Bible.
The parting of the red sea effect happens in many places,
albeit on a smaller scale.

Those guys were hi-tech.

Translation issue?
Evidence?

Poetic metaphor?

@jgweed,
Because of this post, I spent the last few hours researching supposed ufo encounters throughout human history. From the bible to the Mayans to the Sumerians to the 1960s. I liked this one the best:

Read the bottom of page 10 starting with "On September 19, 1961..." up till the end of the chapter.

On the subject of the bible, I find the comparison between Genesis 1 and the scientific theory of the creation of the universe up till man to be strikingly similar. Just more poetic and with less scientific words. I dont understand why creationists dont agree more with evolutionists and vice versa.

a poetic metaphor would be 'like clouds', or 'like doves'.

Because it uses both, it implies a more realistic simile.

@Poseidon,
There is also a description of an encounter of one of the archfathers with Angels climbing up and down a ladder reaching vertically upwards into a cloud.
Sadly, I've forgotten exactly where to find it. Somewhere in Genesis I think.
