My position is this – yes it is likely there are many hoaxes and false claims. And for researchers such as myself it is impossible to know who are the hoaxers and who is telling the truth.
However it seems to me there are far too many unexplained ancient buildings and artefacts to dismiss them all as hoaxes. And many of the claims for OOPArts that are millions of years old seem credible; (i.e. Table Mountain in California). So even if one of these claims is correct then history as we know it needs to be re-written.
