Thanks Polaris. Since you have resurrected this thread I might as well use the opportunity to provide a link to my website I have only just got up and running.http://mannamachine.weebly.com
It purposely does not force the manna-machine theory on to the reader but does try to show that there really was a large and dangerous device within the Holy of Holies. The intention was give a summary of the evidence in a simple way to show that, even though it seems unbelievable, the accounts cannot easily be explained away. But too much incorrect information on the manna-machine is being put out, so it is no wonder people reject it.
To ever understand what really took place in the Wilderness I believe we must learn in what way Akhenaten and the 18th Dynasty was connected to Moses and Aaron. Two days ago, for example, I had the idea that could Akhenaten's city (in the middle of nowhere) actually be that Wilderness? And could his elder brother Tutmoses, who vanished early in his life, be relevant in these events?
Comments and criticism on the website would be welcome so that it can be improved.
