Now they are some good web site's I must admit and quite enjoyed and I am not against the creationists but do agree they tend to distort the fact's
especially when it come's to dating though there is no malevolence in there research and even if there interpretation is questionable at time's they
also are a great wealth of information though maybe requiring unbiased interpretation and verification (I can't help but like them though and being a
fellow Christian an loath to put them down on there opinion's, as you know many of them are very highly qualified and educated individual's whom have
been pushed to the fringe by the increasing secularism and anti religious bias that is changing western culture and maybe not for the better).
Not related but unusual I just happened on this while surfing and though I do not know the site it has this story in not much detail.
Our biggest problem is simple and can be summed up fairly quickly.
1. There is insufficient evidence to provide concise empirical evidence of a previous sophisticated (Technologically) civilisation.
2. Any traces of advanced technology would not even be handed to archaeologists as they would automatically be assumed to be from the near past and
any archaeologist that stumbled on such would probably never stick his career, reputation and friendships on the line for such.
3. The Biological record that is available to us at this time does not show the existence of any previous species that may have been able to
accomplish such and we believe from that same record our species to be a very young addition to the ecological record.
4. There are even if unfeasible to us alternative explanations to any anomalous find's or object's with the rare exception and the usual case of the
discovery of such is that they tend to be found by non archaeologists and the site is usually destroyed in the process (such as mining, quarrying and
other destructive procedures).
5. There are always other interests that may be put before the satiating of public curiosity.
Still it is through the search for this knowledge and the belief in it that archaeology has actually benefited over the years from private funding
and public interest were the story of uncle fred the chimp like pre bipedal ancestor would not.
And there are still anomalous site's like this that may be not alien but ancient defence if the legends are to be believed.
Then you have a large number of underground city's in many part's of the world such as those found in turkey,
Which though maybe not that ancient do point to the way people would try to protect themselves and in Mesopotamia as you probably know they had
poison gas they would prepare and place in clay jars that they would throw at there enemy thousands of years ago.
More recent and not ancient but really interesting nevertheless and this would give a modern take on the use of the underground.
Then there is this one that would fit nicely into GargaIndias thread.
6. military interest.
One final thought I do not know if you have ever experience anything shall we say out of the ordinary but there are a lot of people whom believe in
aliens visiting the earth and that anything not made by our civil aviation or military aviation or space company's therefore is alien but how do the
explain these seemingly solid metallic object's flying through solid rock into mountains and even into the ground, while some may be alien what if and
it is a what is they are actually ghost's like the roman soldiers a plumber once saw in chester while he was in the cellar (Basement) of a building
performing repair's, later excavation revealed a roman road in the same place and orientation several feet below the cellar floor.
