Mystery geoglyphs found in Middle East

Satellite images have revealed strange geoglyphs like the Nazca Lines over countries in the Middle East.

Believed to date back some 2,000 years, the geoglyphs are in the form of strange wheel-shaped patterns, kite patterns and random lines. "People have probably walked over them, walked past them, for centuries, millennia, without having any clear idea what the shape was," said Professor David Kennedy.

"Peru’s Nazca Lines, the mysterious geoglyphs etched into the desert centuries ago by indigenous groups, are world famous – and now thousands of similar patterns have been found in the Middle East."

I like the comment a reader had left in the article... "Keep digging, you'll find the stargate eventually."

I like the comment a reader had left in the article... "Keep digging, you'll find the stargate eventually." Yeah, so let's give Mike here a spade. I will bet he will find the "Hollow Earth" and be kidnapped by evil gremlins.

They look complete rubbish compared to Nazca. Tatty lines/shapes and do not show anything recognizable. Poor comparison to the Nazca lines, I reckon Homo Erectus could have done better seeing that he mastered the sea.

Of course there is always an elaborate cover story to attack this photo. Let us assume the photo is true and thousands of years ago giant humans once walked this earth. How would it affect the scientific communiy, epecially the theory of evolution. What changes would have to be made in the sciences of biology, anthropology and so forth? Would the scientist who discovered this giant skeleton get a nobel prize for making one of the greatest discoveries in history?

It's strange how there is a line of them and and towards the end of the line the wheels get smaller. It looks more like a spill as if some liquid splashed down on these spots and done this. A solid meteorite creates a deep dish like in the Earth upon impact. If you were to dump say 50 gallons of water on dry sand from as high as 100 feet this is what happens. You get a splash mark with a dribble and ornate rings. Just saying!

There is a group in Uganda, the Doduth, (sp?) who still live in that same fashion. They make similar dwellings. The big circle being the primary wall of protection from other people and wild animals, then inside that a place for each family and everyone else in the extended family or Klan, and a place for the cattle they raise. They, too, have a Nomadic life. The structures are made of high grass on top of the rock foundation. I think the rocks keep the leaning grass against them from sliding down. They mix the carotid blood from a nip they make in the ox's neck with their own urine, to drink ... [More]

i just posted a bout this stuff in reply to the "Nazca Lines in the Middle East" thread. They are nothing but remains of seasonal settlements of the bedouins.

Yeah... but it's not true, so all the speculating and "what ifs?" don't really matter, as the photo is simply a hoax. Probably would ... [More]

looks like a few explosions took place here. If not, our ancestors could use a few pointers from Bob Ross
