Now I have a question... since this site is BEFORE pottery was invented... and all they found so far was "flint tools like scrapers and arrowheads
and animal bones. " according to wikipedia...
So they carved all these intricate, highly detailed animals, 50 ton pillars using flint scrapers? Moved them from a distant quarry? Where are the
The other thing that gets me is why do Archaeologist always assume that anything other than a home MUST automatically be a temple? Based on what?
Wikipedia says this...
"There is no evidence of habitation; the structures are interpreted as temples."
Why? Why are they temples? Considering this is an older find that predates most anything, what do they base this on?
Maybe its just a hunting lodge... Maybe old cave paintings are just ancient graffiti done by people who had no where to go during the winter months
and just simply got bored and drew on the walls due to lack of TV?
"With no evidence of houses or graves near the stones, Schmidt believes the hill top was a site of pilgrimage for communities within a radius of
roughly a hundred miles."
No evidence... but he 'believes' it was a pilgrimage site for miles around...
Now I am seeing this touted as the "Garden of Eden... and have even seen sites that say this was a "cult"
If we present that kind of 'facts' here at ATS we get pounced on by every skeptic and troll out there...
But these are the main stream archaeologists so I guess its okay for them to make wild guesses and assumptions ( and be wrong
So just HOW DID THEY CARVE THIS?
And could someone please link me to that image of the Sphinx mentioned in the OP? I seem to have difficulty finding it
And the detail these guys went to is simply amazing...
So the ducks are being caught in a net... has anyone got the figures handy for when nets were 'invented'?
Eden Home of the Watchers
Göbekli Tepe can be described as sacerdotal, in that it was clearly utilized as a place of veneration and perhaps communication with supernatural
entities and domains. This is accepted by the main excavator Dr Klaus Schmidt of the German Aarchaeological Institute of Istanbul. Curiously, in the
Turkish language Göbekli Tepe means 'hill of the naval', suggestive of the site's former role as an important religious centre serving a large
I strongly suspect that the transition was engineered by an extremely powerful and very cunning shamanic or priestly-based ruling elite, who knew how
to easily manipulate and motivate the local population. It would have required a considerable work force of hundreds of people to have constructed
sites such as Göbekli Tepe, and this has to have been controlled by a ruling body of immense persuasiveness.
I can only repeat what I have said above. We are talking about a cult of birdmen, vulture shamans, who would eventually be remembered as the Watchers
of the Book of Enoch and the angels of biblical tradition. No 'angel' has been found at Göbekli Tepe, simply carved statues of men with wings on
their backs. These hybrids are likely to be shamans wearing wings, not supernatural beings.
