ANd then we would of by now found at least a few bits and pieces of hardware laying around !
Right ?

I believe the ancients didn't start recording history till much, much later than cave-drawing times, and I don't think there's any chance they would last anyway (e.g. the Library of Alexandria)..

As for the hardware.. Assuming they were made of metal (if they existed), they would disintergrate to nothing much quicker than you think.. Its believed even entire cities like L.A. or New York would be gone, without a trace, within a mere few millennia. Metals oxidize rapidly.

hardware? meaning alien artifacts?  What if they only visited for one day? Or a week? Then if they zoomed off back where they came from, then doubtless they took their bits and pieces with them... maybe even, when societies got formed into the civil structures we have now, the 'authorities' at the time hid any left behind artefacts away, (like the ARK of the covenant)

Just a one day visit of these strange looking non human creatures could inspire rock paintings as the ancients had to record/describe their unusual sightings. And we dont even know if the ancient painters even had language, do we?

If I go visit my mother for a day, I bring all my stuff back with me, including my 'travelling machine'/car!

Are you asking if humans could talk to each other six thousand years ago?

Can't argue with you there. I'm not even close to being sold on the AA theory, though, but I have seen some things that make me really scratch my head.

That is because humans are world wide, and humans have imagination, and humans create art. The books that have been written in the vein of Ancient Astronauts are stealing centuries of culture and manipulating it to suit a fantasy. It's just the wrong thing to do IMHO. More respect should be given to the cultures that created these artworks.

Its construction just be made of pure controlled energy and the actual structure made of nothing we can dream up . YET !
So Look futher my son the E.T.s are out there,Some where. Some how, SOme day ! :w00t:

Most cave paintings were of animals which they hunted for food, skins, horns for tools etc. If aliens did come here in those times, maybe the rock art is just another species they hunted, rather than seeing them as gods. And the few aliens that did come were hunted to extinction. Lets face it, if (and it's a big 'if') they were here thousands of years ago, there would not have been that many of them.
This is not my opinion, it is just a thought :)

The answer is yes, they had a spoken language.

You can be sure that if they could paint, they could talk.

This art and imagination also has power as we've seen in hundreds of magnificent churches. If you want to control your tribe, you tell them of the scary stuff the tribe protects you from. You draw frightening images like my werewolf guy and watch the members cower.

Additionally, they disregard the brilliance of these ancient cultures in their ability to build incredible structures using clever tools, simple techniques and literally armies of manpower.

It's much like what happened when colonialists went to Africa and discovered the incredible granite masonry in Zimbabwe. They asked the African natives who built these incredible structures since they knew Negroes were incapable of building anything but crude huts.

When the natives showed them how they split smooth blocks from granite outcrops by heating them with fires they asked... who showed them how to do this? They knew Negroes couldn't have learned this on their own.  :rolleyes:

Now we know... it was aliens!
