Is the Gobleki Tepi Vulture stone a record of Younger Dryas Comet strike?

A new paper is making the case that the Vulture stone at Gobleki Tepi records the an a prtoposed ancient comet encounter that kicked off the Younger Dryas cold period.


We have interpreted much of the symbolism of Göbekli Tepe in terms of astronomical events. By matching
low-relief carvings on some of the pillars at Göbekli Tepe to star asterisms we find compelling evidence that
the famous ‘Vulture Stone’ is a date stamp for 10950 BC ± 250 yrs, which corresponds closely to the
proposed Younger Dryas event, estimated at 10890 BC. We also find evidence that a key function of Göbekli
Tepe was to observe meteor showers and record cometary encounters. Indeed, the people of Göbekli Tepe
appear to have had a special interest in the Taurid meteor stream, the same meteor stream that is proposed
as responsible for the Younger-Dryas event.

ARCHAEOASTRONOMY: WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY? Martin B. Sweatman* and Dimitrios Tsikritsis



I have not had a chnce to fully read the paper, but it looks very interesting.


I am of the opinion the celestial events form the basis for much mythology and some events were recorded by early people in the form of rock art.

Wow, I read Graham Hancock's book "Magicians of the Gods". I don't recall him saying that specific block was a record of a meteor strike, but his whole book basically lays out the premise that the Great Pyramid of Egypt marks a point 20 years in the future(from today) that we pass through the Taurid Meteor shower. He also states that this meteor stream is responsible for the the Younger Dryas event which destroyed the last civilization on earth. Supposedly North America took the brunt of the damage and we can see a lot of big land based mammals going extinct, like the saber tooth tiger and the wooly mammoth. They didn't go extinct because of over hunting, it was because their food supply was decimated by a massive meteor strike.

I often wonder if the Elite have always known that we are going to pass through this meteor shower in 20 years. After the decimation of our last world wide civilization we had to come up with a plan. That plan was to create a materialistic world view to create technology over the next thousands of years to bring us to the point we are at today so we can defend ourselves from this cycle of destruction Earth has always been on.

Supposedly Warner Von Braun said the threat after terrorists will be aliens, and the threat after aliens will be meteors. Or was it the other way around?

Either way, very fascinating, the evidence is starting to stack up.

If that was the plan, I hope we can make it in time, without the elites nuking everyone first before the next 20 years are done....

The article in The Telegraph credits Hancock for the initial idea which is what first surprised me. I've never seen an alternative theorist get the credit for a scientific discovery before.

Weird been thinking about this subject a lot lately.

Been binge listening to podcast about it lol.

Nice find if true.

We pass through the stream that is the likley source for this event, twice a year. It has been depleted in the past 20k years, but still give spectacular showers and occasional fireballs.

So, meteoric (civilization erasing or at least mega fauna wiping) strikes with some periodicity isn't so far afield as once thought, huh?

I wonder what fringe theory will be found to have a factual basis next?

Not that I'm happy about it, or anything... cosmic mountains slamming into the landscape is a poor start to a new day, or so I've heard.

Earth has always been going through meteor showers. The best one was in 1833:

www.richmond-dailynews.com...

The theory is that the Earth went through the tail end of a comet, which saturated the atmosphere with fine reflective dust. That would be enough to reduce the growth of vegetation and starve the dinosaurs. There was also a major supernova event 110000 years ago which led to the irradiation of 30% of the Earth. Chert has been found with evidence of radation exposure. Could a supernova have been followed by an expanding cloud of dust and comet?

I say it's all a load of old crap - to quote Ringo.
