The biggest problem with the time traveler artifacts is that sometimes they look like other things. Like the balls with the lines on them. Some kind of ball-like thing could sit in water half way up and erode or get eaten by sea critters in lines. They could also have been worn down into grooves by people using them as bolo balls to hunt game. Footprints? Some kind of animal footprint that flattens out or fills with mud a certain way.
I would love to see some good evidence of time travelers, although if they really wanted to keep their activities a secret they could always go back until they get the evidence they left behind. I think that accounts of sightings of "angels" at places like Jesus's tomb sound a lot more like time-traveling humans than aliens.
The Earth buries its past pretty deep, though.

Yeah but time traveling Humans don't wave a hand and make romans gaurding Jesus' tomb fall asleep, and time travel is impossible, there are not humans from the future because mankind will wipe itself out left to its own devices, so there can be no time travel. The amount of energy it would take is beyond mankinds ability to create.

You can travel to any date you want in the future, right now! All you have to do is travel near a black hole, time will slow down for you while everyone far away is still zipping thru time at the normal speed. You can also freeze yourself and wait to be awoken until a later date.

It is theorized that the true age of the earth is about 4.6 billion years old. Source
It's believed that humans originated about 200,000 years ago in the Middle Paleolithic period in southern Africa. By 70,000 years ago, humans migrated out of Africa and began colonizing the entire planet. They spread to Eurasia and Oceania 40,000 years ago, and reached the Americas by 14,500 years ago. Source
As of 13 February 2010, the Earth's population is estimated by the United States Census Bureau to be 6,802,400,000. Source
Based on those theories, our existence is but a mere drop in the bucket.
So let’s do some math…
4,600,000,000 (earth years) ÷ 200,000 (years it’s taken our civilization to be as advanced as we are now) @ 6,802,400,000 (estimated population)
= 23,000 (give or take a few) civilizations that could have reached our current level of advancement or higher (theoretically). I haven’t forgotten the slot for the dinosaurs to have their little run of existence. There are plenty of slots within that equation for them to have had their run.
If you’ve ever seen the show Life After People on the History Channel it doesn’t take long for proof of a civilization’s accomplishments to be consumed by Earth through erosion. I can’t recall how far in the future the show actually goes off-hand, but even when they go a mere 1000 years after people, there isn’t much left to show for our existence. Now add even 20,000 years to that, there wouldn’t be much to go on as far as what the civilization had accomplished in their existence or how truly advanced said civilization had actually become. With this notion, the remnants of civilizations of previous existences, that may or may not remain for us to see today, could have stemmed from elaborate intelligent infrastructure from these past civilizations.
An example of these types of structures and remnants:
Ancient Underwater Road Discovered in Wisconsin
and the ever popular…
…albeit farfetched in my opinion, this…
Who Left Us an Alphabetic Message Over Four Billion Years Old?
The aforementioned is just a theory I have and I am sure of the fact that I have not accounted for multiple variables. Merely suggesting that we think we’re this uber advanced civilization, when in fact we may qualify as mere apes in comparison to civilizations that theoretically could have inhabited this planet many times over, in the same respect, we could appear as Gods to other civilizations that may have inhabited Earth.
Look forward to your thoughts and opinions.
