Horus -- Flying Disk God?

“Horbehûdti (Horus) flew up to the sun as a great winged disk; therefore was he henceforth called the Great God, the Lord of Heaven. From heaven he saw the foe; he pursued then as a great winged disk.”
[Legend of the Great Winged Sun-disk – Wiedemann, Religion of Ancient Egyptians, Page 69]
Setting aside the proclamations of the Ancient Astronaut theorists, can we assume that, at some point in the history of mankind, flying disks were prevalent or, at least, operative as aerial vehicles for a subset of humanity or even craft used by dimensional or galactic intruders?
And do those disks slip in and out of our vision or atmosphere even today?
Are flying disks mythic, or something technically advanced but prosaic when compared to the theologically induced mythos that religions have subsumed?
And while religions have co-opted flying disks, militaries of the world and most UFO mavens have also usurped flying disks/UFOs to bolster various belief systems and/or agendas, most, if not all, of which, have nothing to do with the essence of flying disks/UFOs.
That is, flying disks/UFOs are representative of something profound, transcendental, as indicated by the excerpt that opens this posting.
If flying disks/UFOs are, indeed, manifestations of something transcendental, they are removed from examination or cursory intellectualism.
They reside in the realm of theology or a kind of theology..
And observers of the phenomena, as well as abductees (experiencers, if you like), -- actual abductees – may be likened to the revered Saints of the Church.
That those simple folk – abductees, generally – can’t or don’t comprehend what they’ve experienced goes to how humanity has moved away from a religious context to a modern, technological or psychotic context.
The early Egyptians, Sumerians, Herbrews, et al. viewed flying disks in a transcendental or religious context.
Modern mankind views flying disks/UFOs in a materialistic, worldly context, while ufologists and their minions view flying disks/UFOs, generally, in a science fiction context.
UFO-atheists can be equated with religious atheists; they are the same ilk.
So, should we be taking a theological approach to UFOs?
Or should we continue to misunderstand UFOs and their mythic meaning, and continue to spin our wheels as we muck around with the misconstrued phenomena?
The choice is an intellectual one.
How many UFO hobbyists are up to the task, able to make the intelligent choice?
