Basically, the answer to all these questions is that our society- the way define ourselves and the way TPTB want us to think, allows for no flexibility in this domain unless 100% irrefutable, studiable, and explainable evidence is provided.

Because no one has ever demonstrated these alternative technologies in a controlled environment, showing they work.
That's why. Don't have a go at science for being science. Have a go at fraudsters for being fraudsters. Science is a methodology, not an organisation.
1. Because there's no proof these ancient technologies even exist, let alone are better than their modern equivalents
2. Because nothing has been demonstrated that can overcome limitations of current technology
3. Science doesn't. Science rejoices, and learns more. The Coelacanth is a great example of that.
4. They don't. There's no evidence for that.
5. That hasn't happened.
Just because people claim things doesn't make them true. We've got to use critical thinking and a rational approach when evaluating new discoveries. It seems the new discoveries you are referring to didn't pass muster when it comes to real science. Again - don't attack science, attack snake oil salesmen.
We are told this is what happened, but many other things happened that are relevant. Artifacts like Piltdown man were manufactured, presumably to make the "discovers" rich and famous, but we must realize that this gave a big boost to the theory of evolution. If the science was so solid/compelling, why would they need to manufacture evidence? Where was their faith in the theory of evolution itself?

But that's not exactly what I was saying. I was implying that when the government finds out about new technology, they get to use it first, profit from it and then we get it.
Sure, I don't have evidence, but don't forget this is what happened with the internet. ARPAnet was being used by the army for many years before the protocols where released for use by the public.
