First off great premise.
For discussion's sake, let's assume ancient humans did develop sophisticated technologies. How could those technologies disappear without a trace?
Where is the concrete evidence?
Here's a few thoughts on this threads general premise/subject.
Whose to say that their 'Sophisticated' technologies had any similarities to our own? Meaning, did they even bother with developing explosive energy
for example? Could they have made a decision right from the start not to go down that route from the beginning? Electrical energy? The Baghdad
Batteries, although interesting, wont power a TV, Radio or much of our more desirable devices, yet they appear to be just that, A low powered battery
for whatever reason.
We do find things from time to time that at the time changes our perspectives on how advanced they were for the periods in question. The

never have known of it.
As far as 'Aliens' all too often I'll read 'Aliens' did it. Well, hell, I'm just as open minded as anyone else but when I see things like the

Here is the largest Egyptian obelisk. It's massive, and if we are to believe the Ancient Alien arguments also a massive ET failure too. There it
still sits, broken in the quarry.
Also, the ba'albek question. The one fact that everybody on the 'Aliens did it' side seems to miss and it's staring them in the face is that...
It got stuck and was abandoned in place and never moved.
Yet, similarly sized stones were cut and moved in antiquity and prehistory. How exactly did they do it? I've read many arguments, theories and
conjecture on the various techniques. I'm still amazed *however it was done* that they were able to do it in the first place and without our
Then, we can talk about ancient astronomers. Now, that one is another amazing accomplishment. But there again, some have made some very good arguments
that the night sky and a camp fire were all that they had for their evening 'Entertainment' so they'd become very familiar with the movements and
patterns all unobstructed by our 'Sophisticated' modern City lights.
