  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

In a play on the old adage 'if walls could talk', a mural has been discovered that could be the world's earliest warning sign.

The 9,000-year-old painting, found on a wall buried in the ancient Turkish settlement of Catalhoyuk, shows a village in front of an erupting volcano.

I wonder if there is a older village buried somewhere near mount Hassan, like the good old Pompeii. The survivors may have moved and build a new village a bit far away (cathal Huyut).

Finally got my black belt....
