How does offering an alternative explanation to use of hallucinogens make me "clearly out of my depth"?

Not sure that it's possible to have any kind of discussion unless other explanations are considered as being as equally (or more) plausible as your own theory. Or is your conclusion that every human activity involving applying patterns to a surface can only be a result of use of hallucinogens?

The days of a drugs as an explanation for rock art in Britain and particularly Ireland were in early 90 's , it has had it's day and evry if any few researchers accept it these days ,for obvious reasons .

They knew in the early 90's because nearly everyone my age was off there heads, that's why they knew then, ending up at these places in those states, the places make the most sense then, i was at castlerigg once when half a rave turned up, even cope used to jokenly call Avebury - Ravebury.

you should learn your drug use history . There was a period in the late 60's and early 70's too , before things went belly up . It was academics who suggested the idea and was lapped up by the punters as is the norm with all punters ,they like to to believe their heroes , in this case "the ancients/ancestors " may have had similar experiences or behaved like them , evidence rarely enters into it .

Oh i know, they understood more in the 60's as well what with all that trippin.
