New NASA SETI Book Suggests Rock Engarving ARE ALIEN? IS AA Right?

Recently, there was a recent article on NASA on SETI studies, based upon Rock Carvings, the release is no longer on NASA's main site but now on a new server "Gizmodo":

Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communication [PDF] | Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communications—a new 300-page volume [1.8MB PDF] edited by Douglas A. Vakoch—are not saying these carvings were definitely made by aliens. They're saying that, since we don't really know the origin and meaning of these markings—which were made thousands of years ago all cross Europe, America and India—we can assume that they are made by aliens as a test to what we may encounter when we actually make contact with a civilization from another planet.

NASA pulled the book and press release from their site. Now the book is available here, as pointed out by a commenter. | Gizmodo

Consider again, therefore, the desirability of establishing symbolic/linguistic communication with ETI [Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence]. It is helpful to review some parallels from human existence that pose problems for us today. One of these is "rock art," which consists of patterns or shapes cut into rock many thousands of years ago. Such ancient stone carvings can be found in many countries [...]
We can say little, if anything, about what these patterns [above] signify, why they were cut into rocks, or who created them. For all intents and purposes, they might have been made by aliens.
Perhaps, Erich von Daniken is right? Ancient Astronaut, and Ancient Alien Theory?
