Breaking it down.
Sonorous pomp.

Bare assertions.

Straw men.

Loony links.

Re: Your acceptance of evidence is determined by it agreeing with your biasses.
Archangel writes:

I believe that rather than the mechanical technology we currently enjoy, they accomplished great feats with brain power that we can't even imagine in this Age.

I didn't see any evidence of ancient brain power in your post--in fact, no evidence at all.

Could you remind me about the evidence part?

AbE: By the way, it's spelled "biases." I don't know what biasses are, but I'm pretty sure not many of us have them.

Edited by Omnivorous, : Spelling irritation.

Why is it that you people are completely incapable of actually dealing with and responding to the evidence and issues I raise rather than just scoffing at and insulting them?

Omni's Umpteenth Law of Internet Debate: The first side to say "you people" is losing.

There was no flood. All your claims depend on a worldwide flood, date certain, for which there is no evidence.

We people don't buy the flood; why should we buy the cartoonish fantasies you've based on it?

It is you who diminishes the achievements of antiquity by claiming only fantastical, deity-bestowed (and later removed) brain powers can explain them. We acknowledge their intellectual prowess and persistence.

Tell me: How were the great cathedrals built in Europe beginning a thousand years ago without modern engines and drills?

NB: Religion probably did play a role is the massive constructions of antiquity--but by providing the necessary labor specializations within a cohesive hierarchical society, not magic fairy dust.
