Suppose there was an 'advanced' civilisation, in comparison to other human populations around the globe.
Suppose it did evolve, or was based, in one specific part of the earth but explored the rest of the globe.
Suppose through its explorations it came into contact with many of the less 'advanced' populations.
Suppose rather than viewing this civilisation as 'Amazing Technological Beings' the reality was more in line with how we've since seen divergent societies progress over time. That is, with non-linear technological advancements linked to cultural beliefs or priorities and environmental pressures or bounties.
There is no reason why they would have had to develop proton accelerators or jet propulsion to BE advanced in their own way or to have knowledge rivalling ours in some areas. After all, to give only one example of thousands, the Chinese were using mechanical clocks to tell the time when the descendents of the great Greek and Roman empires were still watching the sun in the sky and getting scared when it went away.
1. Evidence of visitor 'myths' in diverse places across the world with correlating details that suggest common sources.
2. Evidence of town/city equivalents that would suit the lifestyle (ie. on the coat) of a seafaring society when sea levels were higher.
3. Evidence of technological similarities in two or more ancient societies that suggest common sources of acquisition or development.
Let's face it, we are learning more and more all the time that those three forms of evidence are being found. Considering the total population of earth at the time we are talking about was miniscule compared to the current day and most of the post-ice age time it would be unlikely that we would be tripping over evidence from over ten thousand years ago.
Which brings me nicely back to Gobekli Tepe. Does anyone know what the latest is with any excavations there? Or is it under wrap and cover until WW3 moves away from the middle east to europe and central asia?

But one of the biggest flaws is that they couldn't see the skies over America from Turkey.
Can I point something out and then ask for help with something else?
First, if the cultural group that created Gobekli Tepe was seafaring and not confined to what is now southern Turkey your last point is irrelevent.
In fact, if there had been a near extinction event caused by an earth impact in America, the survivors of the most advanced ancient society on earth would probably seek shelter somewhere else, perhaps even way in land from their usual stomping grounds where it would be more difficult for melting glacial waters or rising sea levels to destroy them. That might also seem a good place to build and bury (keep safe) a megalithic message to future developed peoples.
Even beyond the above two hypotheses there may have been a meteor shower visible in the sky as there earth passed through a dense field. It wouldn't take a contemporary, advanced genius to link that to mass climate effects.
Overall, there is no firm reason why the location of Gobekli Tepe should discount it from being linked to an impact in America.
Second, where you refer to the 'same cultural group' what do you know of them? I have tried to research who definitively created Gobekli Tepe and what other archaeological evidence exists from the same time in the area and found hardly anything! Please can you enlighten me with what you know about them or direct me to somewhere I can expand my knowledge in this area. Many thanks for any help with this.

I'm thinking when Mars was struck,and a large portion of it hit earth about 12,000 yrs ago hitting by Australia,causing Antartica and other areas to sudden freeze,then about 1000 yrs later a large astroid hit by Mexico,causing another devastation,sure make moreesense then story's been told,would sure answer lot's of questions IMO

Nice find! S&F
Concerning Hancock, he and his colleague, Randall Carlson, were on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast about a year ago discussing their latest findings concerning the possibility of a celestial impacter causing the dramatic climate change marked by the Younger Dryas period. It's a worthwhile listen if this topic is of interest to anyone (just don't let a certain ATS mod read any of your thoughts regarding Hancock; regardless if new archeological evidence supports his and Carlson's claims/assertions...he's moron in their opinion):
