There's more evidence for ancient aliens than all religions put together.
I'm not saying ancient aliens were real, but there are certainly a lot more artifacts than any religion.
That's just the opposite for me. I don't believe in religions. All the evidence, to me, points not towards ancient aliens but towards an ancient
advanced (human) global civilization--which could and has been taken to be ancient aliens.
Simply substitute a hi-tech emissary instead of an alien, as a god to the primitives.
Real aliens (IMHO!) would be, well, Alien. Evolved on a different world. They would not be comfortable here on Earth, not without special life support
systems to ensure the right atmospheric mix (assuming they do indeed breath), pressure, shielding, not to mention gravity compensation. Aliens would
most likely appear Very non-humanoid (not like Star Trek "forehead" aliens!) with different senses, visual spectrum, entirely different anatomy, a
biology based on a different element than carbon like silicon (assuming the word "biology" can be applied), an alien means of communicating and
reasoning... They would be incomprehensible to humans.
Alien artifacts would be Alien artifacts without question, as in consisting of Alien alloys we're incapable of producing here on Earth.
This is why I prefer the ancient hi-tech human civilization theory. They destroyed themselves through one means or another (nuclear war?) and humanity
had to evolve all over again here...but the remnants of the ancient society still remain scattered about our planet.
