To me, the texts speak of an elite who had use of the skies and even the ability traverse the solar system. Where it all falls flat with the skeptics is his, in my opinion, erroneous conclusion these guys were aliens. But this is a fair conclusion to make when most of us would not entertain the thought all that technology could have come from an intelligent elite at the dawn of humanity with near unlimited resources (in a world that we most probably mistake for the carboniferous age).
Think of it - mankind has been far too preoccupied with food shelter and warmth and fighting to worry about making toys like flying machines until the past hundred or so years. The ideas were there but you need access to resources and people from all over the world. This was not possible until the New World Order came along! But back then it is plausible to believe survival was not something they stived at. They devoted their days entirely to making these machines to find out more about the universe - to be 'gods' so to speak and this is why they were venerated as such. What better way to control a populace that to perpetuate this belief, keep them paying taxes and enjoying it and keeping everything for yourselves!
Ok you'd probably start fighting each other over things in the end and this is borne out by the texts also. The texts only begin to make sense when they are viewed in this way. Otherwise they come across as a mass of silly stories about gods fighting in the air lol.
And just look at the mess that is the Solar System. One of Uranus's moons has clearly been smashed to pieces and pushed back together like a squashed toffee. And our Moon's face testifies to multiple large impacts, as does our Earth now we can analyze the geology properly. This calamity is what the Sumerians predicted would happen from the object 'planet' X that I believe broke up leaving the asteroid belt and perhaps the comets. The stories all over the ancient world of 'gods' fighting are these planetary upheavals and the corresponding in-fighting with the elite characters who identified themselves with certain planets or became associated with them over time.
And don't forget the use of electricity we know the ancients used.
