I've been surprised and disappointed by the posts and comments of the current author of the month. I was expecting a vigorous advocacy of the ancient alien hypothesis and intelligent well thought out responses to critical and questioning comments. Instead what we got was pretty close to zilch.

I'm seriously wondering, is this all the ancient alien hypothesis amounts to when closely examined, i.e. pretty close to zilch? Or is there solid logic, evidence and reasoning in there somewhere?

Could I take this opportunity to ask the current author of the month, who still occupies the role through 31 March, and anyone else here who is interested or has something useful to say on the subject, what in your view are your best pieces of evidence in support of the ancient alien hypothesis? Ideally I would like to see evidence that would be really hard or impossible to explain by any other hypothesis.

Although I have my doubts, which have been reinforced this month, I remain willing and open to be convinced.
