Carbon-dating shows that the complex is at least 12,000 years old, maybe even 13,000 years old.
Carbon dating? on the rocks? i would have thought they would use something else to date the rocks, specially for old rocks like the ones described here, but who knows, it bothers me thought, most people think everything can be dated by using radio carbon dating, which is not true
But anyway, it sounds interesting, but i guess i'll have to look somewhere else for more serious approach to the site excavations and a more respectable source for info..

A couple of thoughts about the megaliths, did anyone else think of the theme from "2001" A Space Odysey" when they looked at the stones? Funny how art imitates life.

Here we have a fascinating scientific find that can help us better understand the story of humanity and some people have to impose religious myths on it.
Garden of Eden? A myth. One might as well call it the location of Pandora's Box or Asgard or any one of the myriads of religious fairy tails.

An interesting find indeed smokingman a star and flag for you! This may not be Eden but it very possibly maybe the closest that we come to an actual location.
While reading the article, I was struck with how similar it was to this Fortean Times article by Sean Thomas. I was just beginning to think that the author of the Mail article had plagiarised it, when I realised that the author's name - 'Tom Knox' (incorrectly credited at the start of the story as 'Tom Cox') - is a pseudonym used by Sean Thomas for writing fiction. In fact, the Daily Mail article seems to be a promo for Knox/Thomas's new fiction novel, The Genesis Secret (Amazon UK now, and available for pre-order on Amazon US).

Has anyone heard of Stephen Mehler? Who dates the Sphinx in Egypt as possibly over 50,000 years when is was called Khemit before it was called Egypt. There is a youtube and google video of him explaining it plus his site and books too of course.
The Pyramids are said to predate Egypt also as there isn't one hieroglyph in all of Egypt showing them being built by the Egyptians.
The Temple of Osiris also predates the cataclysm or great flood too. It also has "Laser" etched symbols of the flower of life deep into the granite which apparently cannot be recreated with today's current technology with the same precision.
Fascinating stuff though.
