9 steps to understanding Gobekli Tepe

Recommended Posts

Erik Schimek: A subject I find fascinating is the evidence of possible ‘missing civilizations’ in our history, which would bring back the origins of human civilization back several millenia.

However, many of these locations (such as the Gulf of Cambay, and off the coast of Cuba) are difficult to investigate. Therefore, even if they were proven to be more than oddly-shaped natural rock formations, they would offer little insight into the ancient cultures that built them.

This is what makes Gobekli Tepe so interesting: People armed with arrows and flint knives built a series of temples in the middle of the fertile crescent thousands of years before the earliest civilization, and then deliberately buried them under thousands of tons of earth.

This was a fascinating and informative piece. I had not heard of the Gobekli Tepe prior to this article. After researching a little further, only 5% of it is uncovered. Further underground/radar surveys show there is much more to the location. I must wonder....antediluvian?

Awesome if it is...

I have read that there was a comet storm around 13,000 years ago that wiped out many animal species and caused other environmental changes. If so, that could have contributed to the decline and fall of the monolith cultures.
