I saw a video of a crane trying to move a massive block of stone. It makes it hard to believe that the pyramids were built with a bunch of malnutritioned slaves. The amount of bodies and engineering prowess is just mind boggling. Ancient civilizations had to be more advanced than we give them credit for.

Evolution of the body is complete.
Among the silliest things I have ever read on ATS.
The Ancient Aliens theory uses the same idea as religion to say that it explains things. We don't know exactly why this is the case, so insert magic/alien intervention. It's beautiful since these supposed aliens' technology level is unknowable to us so we can give it the same mysticism we gave magic in the past in the case of religion. However, this reasoning is just an updated version of the God of the Gaps argument.

Odd how our writings in history just "BLAM!" showed up fully set all at once, no sub-human languages, nothing. cunieform, the earliest written language just appeared POOF! out of nowhere, what i find odd is how we soo no "incomplete" attempts at written languages in history, and only find the remainder of sudden sprouts of complete sets. no sudden untranslateable scribblings older than them all in sum primitive symbols, just a few untranslateable intricate newer or late-age writings in separate cultures. all in all what I mean is we see no "beta-versions" of languages appear with just a few words, we see the full language and writing forming sentences, ideas, and thoughts perfectly.

we do have to toss out all religious things because they rely on faith not evidence. but where is the evidence of ancient aliens? guy with crazy hair discredits that idea. . . is that on purpose or not . . . have to assume on purpose.

It's probably a combination of factors --- What with mankind's bipedal ability to outrun most mammals at long distances, weapons that could take-down large mammals and birds for meat --- and with the eating of meat at regular intervals --- causes an evolutionary trend for enlarged brain capacity, including solving and performing complex tasks.

If it weren't for the "Dark Ages" we'd probably already be an interstellar space fairing species.
You're right, imagine if war and hunger never existed?
