Absolutely right. But I disagree with your last point, Ed. These
people have not made you look ridiculous. They have made
themselves look ridiculous with their unsupported, kneejerk
responses to your ideas.

They know there are no stones in the sky, so obviously stones
can't fall from the sky.

You are right in that we disagree on some points. I, for one, do not
rule out "angels, daemons, time travelers, interdimensional entities,
etc." I think these beings present themselves to humans in the guise
du jour, and have appeared as angels and demons in times past
because the humans of the day could believe those explanations.
Before we got out into our solar system a bit and found out the
realities, they passed themselves off as visitors from Mars, Venus,
Saturn, or other planets. Now that we know those explanations are
bogus, they claim to be from distant stars.

I don't rule out time travelers because time travel may well be
possible. I don't think FYL travel is impossible in a non-local
universe, but it may be difficult or we may just not be
interesting enough to justify it.

Lastly, I don't think an earlier technological civilization on
earth would be monotremes. Monotremes are an evolutionary dead
end. I think it far more likely that they would be dinosauroids.
But that is probably a minor point in the theory. A convergently
evolved humanoid could come from almost any vertebrate origin.

What I can't figure out is why your theory, mine, or Sanderson's
original should be so damned frightening to some people.
