Do you really think this is the first time I'm having this discussion?!?

You assume too much.

My directly retrievable knowledge of "debunkery" depends on the topic as I've invested more time in some topics than others. For example, I can reference numerous examples regarding criticism of Holocaust revisionism (Himmler's Posen speech, the Einsatzgruppen coffin map, a few passages from the Goebbels diaries, ...), 9/11 (the NIST pancake theory, "pulling" meaning "evacuation" rather than "demolition" when Silverstein used it, claims that the structure of the WTC was only meant to take the impact of smaller planes, the lack of any direct links to CIA or Mossad, ...) or the domination of Jews over Western civilisation (Jews became bankers and thieves because they had no other option due to bigotry, most Jews are unaware of any anti-gentile agenda, many gentiles are also powerful and immoral, Jews and Jewish movements are ideologically diverse, ...) however I know only little about the "debunking" arguments regarding the murder of Kennedy or Roosevelt's explicit provocation of Pearl Harbor and would have to look up details in those cases.

Where is the logic in this statement? It means nothing.
We are currently not capable of space travel (beyond earth orbit) because our current state of technology does not allow this in a safe, efficient and affordable way. Similarly, we're currently not capable of building some of the structures the ancients built (like the pyramids) because our current state of technology does not allow this in a safe, efficient and affordable way. Ignoring evidence of advanced stone building techniques is as silly as ignoring evidence of space travel as both imply advances in civilisation beyond our own.

Capice?!

Who's mentioning aliens? I never mentioned aliens at all. You're the one leaping to conclusions.

All I'm saying, is that the pre-Columbian presence of coca in Egypt and negroes in South-America is anarchronistic from the POV of the official historiography. All I'm doing, is looking with an open mind for an alternative to the official historiography that does explain this as well as other anomalies. The existence of a lost pre-Egyptian civilisation with highly advanced knowledge in fields like shipping, stone-carving, astronomy and theoretical physics (whether called "Atlantis", "Lemuria", "Hyperborea", "Shambala" or otherwise) is such an alternative that I'm considering as it not only explains these anomalies but also provides a different perspective on ancient mythology (eg. Gods and demi-gods being both symbols for natural occurances and references to ancient colonisers from this civilisation).

To my knowledge, it is only accepted that Vikings set foot on the Americas a handful of times with their boats and that Mongoloid peoples once crossed the Bering strait from Asia to North-America when it was frozen. This by no means explains the presence of negroes in South-America or the presence of coca in ancient Egypt.

You're the one who should get a grip. Where did I imply ANYTHING about this being supernatural?

True. However, when the shades of grey are very similar a comparison is justified.

All conspiracy theories are based on anomalies within the mainstream explanations and attempt to provide a logical explanation that is consistent with those anomalies. Sometimes this logic is farfetched and implausible, while other times it makes far more sense than the mainstream account.

Yes, because there's no way idiot blackies could do stuff like this. Aliens, no doubt white Belgian speaking ones, told them how to do it.
You're the one bringing up aliens, not I.

My hypothesis is that there was a lost EARTHLY civilisation capable of colonising other nations and actively doing so, posing as Gods to increase their grip on the colonised peoples. Like many civilisations throughout history, this advanced civilisation collapsed and fragments of its knowledge ended up in libraries (eg. the library of Alexandria), while others were passed on orally between generations by mostly the sages (usually priests).

I'm talking about the use of portable furnaces able to mould a connection between two blocks each weighing tons at the spot, as the ends of the metal part requires it to be moulded within both stone blocks itself. This would still be a puzzle for many 21st century engineers.
