Yes it is an intense beam of light, a perfect dish should make something close to a point, but because of the spherical geometry and the width of the sun, it makes a tube of light. That is seen by blowing smoke across the volume. It is incredibly potent and able to deliver the miracles of the OT.
Manna is an intriguing one. I have read of explanations that are based on water condensing on the font lid and worms growing in the moisture. this is explained away as a source of protein, which is reasonable enough I suppose. But manna from heaven is heavenly food, I suspect it is more to do with the fact they cooked bread in the Ark chest with the power of the sun. It is tough to prove of course, but showbread is the result according to the OT.

The ancient solar premise is just a framework to deliver this.

Ain't that the case, somehow we have to cut back thru the mist to the realities behind the stories. Otherwise the future researchers will have an even more difficult task.

It is not enough to prove the current paradigms have failed, there must be something to put in its place otherwise the same arguments will continue in their ever decreasing circles.
