Evidence of an ancient city that could predate the Egyptian Pyramids has been discovered in Syria.

Fox News said:

A mystery city lies in Syria’s deserts, one older than the pyramids -- but the war-torn area is preventing archaeologists from decoding its riddles.

Its a shame, we will probably never ever get to see it.

Who knows what else is to be discovered in places like Syria and Iran, guess we will never know, atleast not in our life time.

Sad, these places are so important to world history. I think even back then they knew the importance of tourism.  When you destroy your history you destroy the jobs you would have  from visitors who want to see and understand these places.

Another fascinating find that will have to wait the end of human stoopidity.  So sad.

Here a bit more, plus a couple of photos of this "Stonehenge" (looks like the goats have already eaten it, lol):


Dr. Mason set out to look for more stone circles and chambered structures. This time he brought a monk with him, from the monastery – a good idea, since he was near a Syrian military base.

“Lurking around in the hills above a Syrian military base with a digital camera in one hand and a GPS unit in the other is the sort of thing that makes you want to have a monk in your presence,” he said.

The two of them went to a rock outcrop – a place that would have been a good source of flint in ancient times. He found the remains of more of these corbelled structures – between six and eight of them. In the valley below they found another corbelled structure with a stone circle right beside it.

The monk who travelled with him sensed that this high outcrop would have been of great importance to the people who lived here. “This is a high place” he told Mason, something which their next find would justify.

This struck me as indicative of the accuracy and possible correctness of the article, if not the referenced presentation.

Quote

Egypt’s oldest pyramid, the Great Pyramid of Giza, was built about 4,500 years ago.

I believe there were at least 3 great pyramids before the Giza pyramids were built. Dojier's Pyramid, the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid, that I can remember off the top of my head.

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

if it is older than the egyptians there would be more conflict with the Church.

Huh??

Lots of things are older than the Egyptians.

Göbekli Tepe in Turkey is 11,000 years old.
