Not so sure about "great civilizations" but more wondering if there were "other civilizations" that existed alongside the ones already discovered.

Is it possible? Perhaps--we'll see, with more scientific and genetic testing. Aren't scientists discovering unknown critter species all the time? So why not other human(oids)?

My mind is also open to head binding or even a hoax. The evidence is sketchy at the moment.

They've moved mans time here on earth back to 3 million years or so, that's a lot of time for other civilizations to have existed and been lost to time. Even if one had existed say 1 million years ago most any evidence would be gone. No way to prove it, no way to disprove it.

Not once do the so called PHDs use the term "this is a theory", they state it as fact with little or no evidence, much like shows such as Finding Bigfoot and others.

They use the phrase "according to ancient alien theorists,..." often in the program.
