If I'm up on my "Ancient Aliens" knowledge, I think that the reasoning for the theory that aliens helped out Man at various stages in our civilization's development is that there were certain scientific breakthroughs that happened suddenly with little evidence of, let's say, "scientific methodologies" documented showing a progression to them.
I think a proponent of the "Ancient Aliens" theory would hypothesise that the Aliens figured it out for themselves, because hey would have been a much older civilisation...
But until you can ask the aliens themselves....isn't it a kind of "impossible to quantify or qualify" kind of question?

I am an avid reader of ATS. I rarely create my own threads and occasionally reply to others. I have been watching the Ancient Aliens Series. They postulate that Ancient Aliens gave humanity much ancient knowledge. Like how to make steel weapons, gun powder and more. I find myself scratching my head and wondering...so..how did the aliens acquire their knowledge? It all had to start somewhere or someplace. I was wondering if anyone else had thoughts on this.
