My problem with aliens helping our ancestors theory is why the hell stone !
1. An alien visiting here MUST have technology that is more advanced than ours today.
2. The aliens would have been seen by our ancestors using said technology and thus the aliens are not hiding anything.
3. Put 1 and 2 together then you have to ask "why the hell stone". If you are going to interfere then why not use carbon fibre, nanotubes etc even we have that! imagine what materials aliens would have and would know how to make it and would teach our ancestors how to make it.
How coincidental that the aliens just happen to use their advanced technology to manipulate the (human) material of choice at that point in time ie stone.

Advance technology refers to a technology that a time period had but was not supposed to have, or wasn't discovered until hundreds of years later.
That is the definition you apply to it. I have in past posts stated by advanced technology I mean that rivaling our own today. By your definition, we could have a wonderful debate and I would love to hear what technology you believe they used. I am intrigued. Unfortunately that is not what people here on ATS typically mean. Many here believe there have been many 'Advanced Civilizations' (such as Atlantis) that surpassed our level of technology, and these civilizations have come and gone through the history of the Earth. We are currently on a rebuilding period and not at the level of technology we have been at in the distant past. Many here also believe Pumapunku is far older than the 1500~ or so years old that it is, thus the fascination with it.
Refer to this post.

would it be the easiest explanation that stone age people who gained advanced scientific knowledge might be telling the truth when they invariably explain that sky gods instructed them? or were they liars and hallucinators that somehow nonetheless miraculously constructed things we can't match (or even move such monoliths as used) today and invented calendars that have only been rivalled for accuracy by computers?
you're not one of those pro 'skeptics' who has all the answers before the questions, are you?
You are forgetting the timeline here. First there is no evidence that the "Pregnant Stone", in the above image, got stuck rather that it was simply abandoned or for some unknown reason was left where it is. The fact remains that stones of similar size were hewn and placed on the Baalbek site.
It got stuck and was abandoned in place and never moved.
Another ET fail?
Again, as you can plainly see it got stuck where it's at and they couldn't move it. Yet, they continued building the temple unabated just switching to smaller blocks. Here you'll see the other giant blocks at the base.

My theory is that these ancient civilizations stem from Atlantis. I feel that certain inhabitants fled before the catastrophe and they carried off world technologies or had unique knowledge which they later used to rebuild.
I was lucky to see a lot of those formations in Peru this year and they truly are amazing.edit on 9-12-2012 by starshift because: add
