I thus learnt my first great lesson in the inquiry into these obscure fields of knowledge, never to accept the disbelief of men or their accusations of imposture or of imbecility, as of any weight when opposed to the repeated observation of facts by other men, admittedly sane and honest. The whole history of science shows us that whenever the educated and scientific men of any age have denied the facts of other investigators on a priori grounds of absurdity or impossibility, the deniers have always been wrong.
YEP it seems we spend all our energy and thought trying to disprove the obvious rather we give these ancient people the abilitys to do things manually that are just unrealistic
You see our ancestors were not stupid and they existed at a time before mass entertainment and in most cases before democracy so they had endless hours to devote to building incredible monuments that we today would find tedious to assemble. We wouldn't be able to build pyramids today not because its impossible but because its impractical, because we don't use that kind or size of stone to build anymore and because techniques have changed.
So, all over the world we have relics in the form of giant constructions well beyond the scope of primitive man to imagine, never mind build with simple tools and no written language.

Are we getting closer to finding the source of our amnesia ? we as a people seem to have huge gaps of missing time evolution and technology that would be explained by a little alien stepping stone in our past. I cant wait to tune in

The reason many people spend time debunking ancient astronaut theory is because there is no direct evidence of it.

When we look out at the universe, we see countless millions of galaxies, containing countless trillions of stars, many with their own planetary systems. We know that life exists here, on this planet, so logic dictates that if life arose here, there must be any number of other planets whose relative position to their sun and the existance of water and the other building blocks of life allows for life to also be "out there".
