Philosophy ... Why do people think extraterrestrials were necessary for civilization building?

I mean, we know some of these ancient civilizations lasted for thousands of years. I don't understand why some people think those civilizations couldn't figure out, in those thousands of years, how to build things on their own ... without help from extraterrestrials. Is that thinking a result of constantly being told we're no better than animals?

It's an insult to our ancient ancestors to assume that they were unable to build pyramids and monoliths without help from aliens ... but how DID they get those giant blocks all the way up there so far from the quarries and so high above the tree line? I'd love to know how they got those perfect right angles carved into those rocks. How did they get the blocks hot enough to achieve vitrification? Things that ma ya say Hmmmmmm... This is why I love to watch Ancient Aliens in History Channel! Haha! :-)

I know, Tony. I watch it too ... but I think "how many times did we (humanity) try before we got it right?" And then would we have just left all the errors around, or cleaned them up and used the ones we could for other things?

Merely not knowing how they did it doesn't mean that they couldn't. Or rather, we are more stupid than they are. We may be more advance, but that's just us benefitting from inventions that are passed down from generation to generation. The average person doesn't even know how to put together a computer ( a fairly simple task). If you ever travel the countryside, you have to wonder why natural selection isn't as thorough.

I think it is because they saw no need for civilization. This is because they were much contented with the kind of lifestyle they had back them. This is not because we're no better than animals but because that time allowed people to live that way.

They had a never ending supply of slayves(misspelled purposely) to do all the crazy work that was involved. Slayves working around the clock to accomplish these things. Humans have been accomplishing crazy things for a long time. People that are spoiled by technology these days have a hard time believing that things used to be done manually through HARD labor! I mean even the act of taking down a tree has been changed DRASTICALLY, amongst tons of other things that we take for granted these days. But the ancients trick was extreme man-power, flat out.

Egyptian pyramid builders weren't slaves, they were given wages. Neither did they have dark african-like skin.
