I don't know - it makes sense to me that any civilisation visiting another planet would use the most available and easy to use raw materials.
I wonder would we still use stone if it was easy to transport, shape and construct with?
Think of a race 10,000 100,000 a million years a head of us, I do not buy it. They would maybe use our natural resources but to build at the tech level of us for that time I do not see it.

It is a reasonable thought that many of the Nazca lines were made for their gods. The question is who are they? And why the heck did they make sculptures only visible from the sky in terrain that would remain untouched for thousands of years? So far from their cities that they would have to travel and make these. Most ancient cultures that worshipped gods didn't make their tributaries like the Nazca. That is why it remains such a mystery.
The problem is people do not have faith that humans can do all that, I wonder why... Also do you find it strange of an advance alien race that comes here and then works with raw stone and simple metals? It is like nothing cool and crazy can be human origin. I think aliens are just a cop out for an easy way to explain how something was done instead of really trying to figure out how it was done.

I think there are numerous signs, clues, whatever, showing alien presence here. Indeed, if the hypothesis put forth by Human Genome Project 10+ years ago, that parts of the human DNA strand are extraterrestrial in origin, are true, then we humans are living artifacts of aliens.
Understanding that our "conventional wisdom" regarding human history is grossly incorrect, alien influence cannot be denied.
Actually what the Human Genome Project found was that a lot of our junk DNA or epigenome has a lot of virus DNA incomporated into it. Not from aliens flying in spaceships DNA.

That's a big question of mine. If extraterrestrial entities have been on Earth for so long and also stabilished some civilizations, outposts or whatever like some people usually say, why we can't find artifacts or any kind of vestige from extraterrestrials beings on Earth?

A very interesting point, would a civilization like that continue to evolve new technology's or would they eventually level out at a set level, I personally think for a civilization to last that long they would have to level out in order to prevent themselves from destroying themselves or even replacing themselves.
But I wonder if a race could actually go so far that they would leave the physical dimension behind though this would require them to not level out but to change and adapt becoming more than they were and changing into something entirely alien to there original state of being.
They've been here all along. Before we ever were here.
