Good for you Dennis!

Well said all!

The theories of ancient advanced technologies and even
civilizations is often ridiculed because of the limit of the
ridiculer's level of awareness and irresponsibility.

Sometimes you'll get a guy who'll stand on a soapbox claiming
that Bigfoot is an extraterrestrial emissary yet then call
anyone else's theories 'absurd' or 'ridiculous'. You'll even run
into ufologists with about as much proof of ETs as Luckey Charms
Cereal has about leprechauns, but will call anyone else with any
other theory 'absurd' or 'ridiculous'.

I grew up around the best in archaeology, history, theology. One
thing that they instilled in me was to always take a second and
third look at conventional data as one must be aware of the fact
that it may not be the full truth. Keep on keeping on. When I
grew up and worked in the news business I got to see just how
true that was. What I learned in college about the hominids has
now had to be re-written several times. Even when I told my
anthropology professors that I had seen chimps fashioning tools
for weapons they would get hot under the collar but now we've
learned I and others who had seen this may well be correct. All
I did was asked the people who lived near the chimps what they
did and there were stories that went back for generations.

When mining company experts as would talk about hushed up
findings I thought they were off their rockers. I have several
top professors right now who have sworn to me about thousands of
artifacts and documents etc. which irrefutably point to the
existence of earlier human and humanoid civilizations yet
they've been sworn to secrecy of such items as should they come
to light it would upend our social structures.

In a nutshell, our present civilization is built upon crimes
against our fellow human beings based on justifications to do so
based on the corruption of religious and social beliefs. As long
as that illusion is maintained we don't have to look and feel
guilty for the murders and thefts. Let it be known otherwise and
it all falls apart.

Bottom line is we don't know everything about physics, this
planet, ourselves. We don't have the manpower to do so yet. What
we need to do is just sit tight and face what is discovered and
presented and let it go at that. I'm certain Earth has been
imaged to depths of at least several miles and there's some
things that have yet to be disclosed publicly. Look at it from a
strategic point of view. Let us say we did discover a buried
ancient civilization. We don't want our enemies to start digging
it up first now do we? Who knows what ultimate death ray or some
such gizmo would do in the wrong hands.

Did humans of the past employ technologies we can't duplicate
yet? Sure! Did these technologies come from aliens etc? We have
no way of knowing. Best bet is that Earth has had some very,
very smart people on it from time to time. Nutrition, peaceful
weather patterns, all the good things going in tandem for
several thousand years could cause any number of good things and
people to spring up.

What happened to them? Who says anything happened to them? :)

The skeptics would say, "Well where are their cities and
factories and why don't we see remnants etc.?".

Keep digging.
