What's this about airships from ancient Atlantis?

Near the end of the Egypt chapters the author posits that mythical dragons may have actually been metal airships from ancient Atlantis! No evidence was provided for this incredible assertion.

After the dragon chapter I lost all trust in the author's credibility. We're forced to assume this book is conspiracy theorist BS and useless as a reliable source for ancient mythology.

Not that it matters much but the narration was good enough but not very captivating.
