Thank you for sharing the video. I am glad it is not translated so many of us can make our own conclusions. I agree it is natural, with some obvious quarry activity going on at the site. As one person has stated, this area was above water over 10,000 years ago and could have easily been used to quarry material needed for building.

Oh my, I can't believe there are some people in this thread that believe this is a natural formation!

Sorry bro but I'm not buying it... Theres way too many "coincidences" here for me to believe this is a natural formation...
Although I have the feeling that regardless of wahts found, you'll still deny it.

i still say natural erosion and water current over years and years made it that way.
But ive been wrong before lol

The Dropa Stones were fictional and acknowledged as such by the guy that wrote about them. Google David Agamon and Von Daniken. Not one person in the account ever existed and half the Chinese names were made up. The hand of Daniken strikes again!

How's your geological knowledge?
I guess more work needs to be done to see if there are any tool marks, any out of place items, check the talus slope for evidence etc.
Q: How do they know Gobekli Tepe is so old?
A: The archaeological team at Gobekli, working under Klaus Schmidt, has used radiocarbon analysis on the soils adhering to the stones. The analysis shows that the main stones at Gobekli Tepe were erected between 10,000 and 9,000 BC. The characteristics of flint arrowheads found here confirm these dates.
Q: How could hunter-gatherers build something so complex?
A: Farming did not start in this area until 8,000BC. It is therefore certain that hunter-gatherers did build Gobekli: there was no one else around. Klaus Schmidt (right) speculates that large bands of hunters congregated here during the construction. (Bones and arrowheads support this thesis.) They then dispersed, perhaps returning to Gobekli at specified times of the year.
Q: Why was the site buried in 8,000 BC?
A: No one knows. But the way the dust is packed around the stones shows that Gobekli was entombed deliberately, and with some care.
Certainly though, volcanic outcrops can appear 'unnatural' to those predisposed to excitement!
