I don't get why this is so hard to understand.
Saying its paranormal is lazy, i.e. ALIENS
Humanity is roughly 250,000 years old, that is the current version.
Ancient man had the same intelligence as we do (not knowledge or education but brain power)
It took modern civilization 12,000 years to rise give or take a few thousand years.
IN the past 200 we have seen HUGE leaps in tech.
12,000 is a drop in the bucket compared to 250,000, there is no reason what so ever that civilizations could of advanced to a level near if not equal
In 10,000 years what will remain of our super advance civilization we have now? would we just have a few stone structures, with anomalous radiation in
weird places from all our pollution...
Recently, I said this in another thread - plz continue to read after this, the point we disagree
on (and it shows that we clearly agree,

Furthermore (addendum to post, immediately above), think about our own 'evolution' as a civilization, 'this time around' - let's assume for a moment,
that we have, as a civilization, only been on this planet 6,000 yrs (if you want to go longer, it only supports my argument, further)...
Over 95% of all technological advancements have occurred in less then 5% of our existence on this planet - less than a mere 200 years ago, we had only
'evolved' roughly 3.5% of where we've come, now. That is to say, we were much, much closer to our 'caveman ancestors' (or, survivors of the
last cataclysm - see recent highly rated 'Caveman' thread) just 200 years ago, than we are, today - so, why would this notion seem 'farfetched'
to anyone, is beyond me.
Having said all of that, I do not think it is 'lazy' to say 'aliens' - but when I say 'aliens' I do not mean in the LGM fashion, rather our
who developed differently scientifically
than we did, this time around
That is to say, I think it things like the Great Pyramid of Giza are perfect example of anomalies that can easiest be explained away by past
iterations of ourselves, being more advanced, technologically - in certain areas - than we are today.
Yes, I've seen Slayer's How the Pyramids Were Built thread. It was another fantastic job (structurally and argumentatively) - as all of his threads
are. I respect this guy's input, immensely, I just happen to disagree with him completely on this matter haha
(pretty sure I even commented
(positively/agreeing) in another one of his threads today, come to think of it)
**and, when you begin to understand that truth, you ultimately have to come to the subsequent conclusion that life on this planet began
by a visitation from a civilization FAR more advanced than where we have currently gotten ourselves, today - whether you are god or an alien, they had
an understanding of genetics far greater than we do to this point [insert chimara (and, mythology) thread notes here
] - I am complete atheist (and,
converted evolutionists (yes, I am aware of punctuated equilibrium, and I do not subscribe to that theory either, explaining away some remarkable gaps
in our development) - but, this is material for another thread.
