I just wondered if all this woo has specific counters somewhere:

We have articles on a lot of the artifacts -- check OOPARTS. The major issue with this sorry is that it lists no sources, and just expects us to believe the dating methods and finds. FuzzyCatPotato!™ (talk/stalk) 12:10, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
While I'm not against the idea of "out of place artifacts", I got to ask why are they assuming this mean pre-ancient civilization and aliens? Mean, not Impossible, just improbable. There could be an hundred to one other reasons that would be much more sane. For one, misdated artifacts and the fact that humans must always associate random object and patterns and say "IT IS MAN MADE" ect (yet another reason why I dislike determinist; they assume that X therefore Y when it could've been just true random chaos). Hell, why isn't any of the conspiracy seekers saying it was caused by time travel? — Unsigned, by: Steampeng MK.1 / talk / contribs
