I'm sure that if they were that intelligent at the time they build that place then you have to believe that they were intelligent way before that time as well. Afterall, people didn't get smart at once. It happened slowly which means
that they had build something else way before they build the one at the present site in Turkey. The books will be rewritten over and over again until they get it right if at all possible.

If someone else than the original builders buried the place, then why they left the whole structure intact?
Rampant speculationing on my part, but it's possible that they respected it for what it was but wanted to move the people of this newly conquered/converted land on, but not by antagonising them overly. So bury the site rather then obliterate it. Even Stalin didn't knock down Saint Peter's Basilica, same thinking - move the people on by abandoning the site but not antagonise them by destroying it.

Here's a question, and pardon my ignorance, but how do we know that it was purposely buried? Various archiological site that have been discovered have had to have been dug out of the ground. Does not time tend to fill in spaces? Sandstroms could do this quite rapidly.  Was there lack of erosion or some other evidence that led to the conclusion that it was buried on purpose?

Did you ever see dirt going uphill? so the only explanation to a artificial summit on a hill is that somebody carried the dirt there. Besides that there is hardly any weather erosion on the stones, which indicates that they have been covered and never were exposed to the surrounding climate.

Hmmmmm there could be so many reasons, great topic by the way love it.

My guess would be religion too but there is maybe way, the people moved on due to weather, food, lack of water.

Iwould love to read more.

Again great topic :)

I've seen dirt going uphill on many an occasion (eve been in a sandstorm?) and endured one rather bad sandstorm that almost buried one building overnight, so yes, it is possible. Your comment on no erosion marks does make sense though.

These are very good assumptions.  I do agree that another religion could have taken over and buried it, but wouldn't it be much easier to destroy it if that was the case?

I came to a different conclusion recently with all the news about magnetic waves and alignments and all that other stuff with the planet changing.  Could it be that all planets and stars and everything else in space is changing as well?

My point is, all these discoveries in the past century, could it be the reason these monuments always have been there, in another dimension, for example 4th dimension, and now that we are so close to getting there, this consciousness is allowing us to see what has been there all along.

Like I do not know how to explain it but if u seen the movie or read the book the Mist.  The dimensions bumping into each other, so on earth we started to see creatures from the past.  I know this movie is not fact, but fact is it is recorded throughout history that people have experience 3 days of complete darkness.  Sounds like a black hole to me, and I heard something about a black hole being near us and might suck us in?  And since no one really knows what a black hole does, I am just assuming that it doesn't destroy us but may be in part of our evolution into a higher dimension.

Well there is a possibility that, given the site was built on and over a couple of times in it's past, the worshippers covered the old site over themselves with grand plans of building something new there and then all died of a passing plague, Or the religion became more nature based and the decided that all they needed to worship and connect with their belief system was a nice big tree so buried the site and planted a tree there,

My thoughts are the site was buried by a invadeing force and they are not dating that site right. Hunters and gatherers could not have just come out of the woods 11,000 years ago to build something that perfect, when theres a evolution of  architictural design and how it relates to another culture, in the rough

heck this out:

Quote

It is not known why every few decades the existing pillars were buried to be replaced by new stones as part of a smaller, concentric ring inside the older one.[33] Human burial may or may not have occurred at the site. The reason the complex was eventually backfilled remains unexplained.
Source: Wiki

These folks did a lot of burying of their architecture there every so often.

Maybe they ran out of room inside the original "concentric ring" and just walked away after that? LOL

Why would they bury these columns every few decades?  It would indicate that burying a thing meant something to them, I surmise.

If so, then maybe they buried the final thing for the same reasons.

Maybe it was buried by a giant Cat that used the desert as its litterbox.

You can`t judge the site and date it by the dirt that was dumped on it, you can only date it to how it relates to another culture.

I think they wanted to preserve some of their legacy for generations to come. Especially if there was a lot of volcanic activity around the end of the ice age. Unfortunately too much time has passed and we don't know what it means anymore. Maybe more of it will be understood once the rest 90% of the site is revelead.

I would like to see some ancient sites that were not temples and such. it would be so cool if Göbekli Tepe rings were expensive state-of-the-art condos or hotel rooms. Stone Age 5 star hotel so to speak.

Or a whorehouse. :w00t: After all it is the oldest profession in the world...
