You don't know what you're talking about here.
Howdy Doody was way before Ori's time.
When he was a child "Chariots of the Gods" was a best seller, and it talked about Baalbek. There weren't many in the 70's who hadn't heard of the book. In 1973 a documentary of of the same name was released that also talked of Baalbek and shows the Pregnant Woman stone, and probably every ancient site on the planet. It can be watched at my link where you can see it was in color. Anyone who had an interest in ancient history knew of Erich von Daniken. If you hadn't read the book or seen the film, your parents were talking about it. It would set off an explosion of renewed interest in the unexplainable.
In 1980 Arthur C Clarke's series "Mysterious World" hit American television. American's were soaking it up and the seeds were planted. Well, not in your mind they weren't

You're making some seriously dumb assumptions. I accepted the orthodox spiel until my late teens, when I began to question their stupid explanations, thanks to von Daniken.

Using the phrase "most of us" hardly warrants your over-reaction and name calling. You've used it yourself in claiming everyone thinks like you do.
