cool, but whats theoretical about a screenplay in involving stargates in ancient egypt, if not stargates?
for example, it says in one of the blurbs, that it was nearly identical to the original, with the exception of some nae changes. sounds about right.

Because unless I have missed something huge; they haven't, in the real world, found a 'stargate' in Egypt.......writing a sci-fi/fantasy story about something doesn't mean it is true.

Göbekli Tepe, is a hilltop sanctuary erected on the highest point of an elongated mountain ridge some 15 km northeast of the town of Şanlıurfa, in southeastern Turkey and 500 miles away from Istanbul, Turkey. It is the most astonishing archaeological discovery in modern times and also thought to be the oldest advanced civilization on Earth.

This is pretty fascinating, 12,000 years old and 7,000 years older than Mesopotamia known to be the 'Cradle of Life'. Before stone hedge, and the Great pyramid. According to biblical tradition the world began in 4000 BC but that was 8000 years later than the foundation of Göbekli Tepe. Something with advanced tools and a way to move rocks that weigh many tons made all this.

That was quite interesting, but can anyone tell me how they made the jump into the 'great flood'? It just seemed to come out of nowhere haha

It did come out of nowhere! They seemed to be going off on a biblical tangent at the end. This film (which I watched again) is a good example of fringe believers taking a known site and trying to make it as mysterious as they can......, Gobekli Tepe is interesting in its own right

Some of the stuff the video points to is amusing; like they repeatedly said the stone is 'perfectly carved', well no they are not and you can tell that from these non-detailed images, 'no tools found' , well yeah, etc


I'd suggest the following articles for more real information


Schmidt, mindful that future archaeologists may develop better techniques, refuses to be rushed. At 53, he’s got 12 more years of digging until he retires, and he envisions the site’s excavations lasting another halfcentury.
Mindful of archaeology’s destructive nature, he’s carefully leaving something for future excavators. “The idea is
not to excavate the entire settlement. The idea is to excavate as little as possible,” he says. “We just have to have enough to be sure we understand what was really going on at the site.”

The Helladic period dates back to the 30th Century BC!

And like I said the 12k are just an estimation and a very vague one, too. And no we're not talking about Turkey because this is irrelevant since Turkey is only roughly 800 years old. So this is of course nothing Turkish. And I gave a very plausible explanation.

It was always the dominant culture since ancient times

Ok, first you said hellenic... then you say helladic. Ok... I sincerely hope you know the difference.

Still... the early helladic dates back to 3000bc so... your point is? 3000 bc is NOT 10000 bc... 10000bc is not bronze age like the helladic, is neolithic - lithic as in STONE... 10k bc is still a stone age (a new stone age ok, but still a stone age) not a metal age. We're talking about a 7 or 8 thousand years difference.

I dont mean to be rude or offensive but...

Do you even know what you're talking about? I mean... I'm a history major, and I never ever seen anyone mixing hellenic or hellenistic with helladic... Come on... you want ppl to take you seriously, please learn your history because I'm not here wasting my time with someone who cant understand history and cant tell a stone age from a bronze age and the years between them. - this is like... 8th grade history.

Thank you Thank you FraternitasSaturni !
Well put -
I've been reading the drivel on here and wondering :- Does anyone know their history???
This is basic history we are talking about ! I was almost about to stop reading until I read your post -

But, I think I'll not read any further on this post - I believe there are other posts regarding the same subject -

HM interesting, never heard of that one. And I follow archaeological news. Thanks for the tip, gotta look further into it!

At first glance the "T" stones look kinda like supports for a spiral staircase.

There is a slight possibility that I could be wrong though.

“Between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis…” Seriously, is Turkey really the land of the survivors? What did they look like? Were they blonde hair and blue eyed, tall and fair skinned? It seems their ritual of burial was to behead and feed the body to the vultures. And they liked big curvy ladies.

The tower of Babel. Or the tower of the elephant.
Okay, question for someone a little more versed in this subject.

From what I am reading on Göbekli Tepe, Çatalhöyük, Jericho, Nevalı Çori, is that they were all abandoned sometime before the Bronze age, which itself had a mysterious ending as well. So what the heck happened?

I have not read the entire thread so my apologies if this has already been suggested.

Has anyone considered these as supports for a stair-case/walk-way?

from another angle. please forgive my spiral.

And something I didn't see while watching but during skulking of the frames for the above. Though maybe I am just seeing things after 4000+ frames of video.
