Advanced doesn't have to mean they had the ability to leave earth's gravity and reach the moon or be able to launch satellites into orbit.
My take exactly. "Advanced" is a loaded word. I think it's probably difficult for modern people (self included) to conceive that technological progress or any given advancement might not look anything like what we're familiar with.
They clearly had knowledge of things that we still don't have today.
I think that's particularly difficult for people to accept and why the conversation goes immediately to aliens.
Aliens may have interacted with ancient peoples and may have a significant role in shaping our world... who knows? It's possible.
....but I think that's a disservice to our human ancestors to jump to that conclusion before accepting that they might have known more than we do.
