After reading these article in the Legendary Times it sure makes sense that it could be and also worshiped as a GOD. It kept the people fed for 40 years while in their travels to home. The machine was more than likely a nucelar ran object to produce the manna and using water vapor from the air and a growing algae that is nutrious to consume. The machine had to be broken down once a week to be cleaned,The Sabbath, and only a few were to be working on it according to the laws written to keep them from radiation poisoning and keeling over. Some did mess with the machine that were not the operators and died from exposure.
The machine could have been buried under the Temple Mount as it had lots of tunnel systems under there but some say it ended up buried here in North America on Oak Island. Some engineers took some reading from old writings and designed and ran one and it produced manna.
Maybe we need a bunch of these made to feed the starving masses in Africa...
If you can get your hands on this Legendary Times copy it is a good read. Vo. 9, No 3&4 of 4 (#42/43)
