Göbekli Tepe is "unbelievably big and amazing, at a ridiculously early date," according to Ian Hodder, director of Stanford's archeology program. Enthusing over the "huge great stones and fantastic, highly refined art" at Göbekli, Hodder—who has spent decades on rival Neolithic sites—says: "Many people think that it changes everything…It overturns the whole apple cart. All our theories were wrong."

I do understand where you are coming from with this as I have touched on it on another thread (which I started) and on other posts.
Gobekli Tepe is something that was built way before 'God created the heavens and the earth' so obviously poses a problem to those with strong religious beliefs. Although I am one who has never 'found the faith' I am an admirer of those who have as, to them, it is everything. To most of them their religion is their rock, their faith, their belief and everything they live for and places like Gobekli Tepe are disturbing to them. What if irrefutable proof was found amongst these buildings that Extra Terrestrials had indeed visited this planet and Genetically modified us to become the beings we are today? There would be pandemonium throughout the world! Would it not be better to just 'tone down' the discoveries somewhat and just allow enough to leak out for Georgio "The Hair" Tsoukalos to shout "Aliens" in his own inimitable way leaving the discovery open to derision?
Whereas we have much to learn from ancient monuments and buildings there has probably been discoveries that may be best left alone in the volatile world be live in, for the time being.

There's hardly been any coverage of the Bosnian Pyramids, the oldest and largest pyramids (openly) discovered... and hardly any coverage of the chamber found underneath the Sphinx in Egypt, nor most of the amazing archaeological discoveries of recent times whose acknowledgement would threaten the narrow minded scientific views of the establishment, this stuff gets tossed under the rug all the time for Justin Bieber or whatever the hell they call "news"... it's the way those in control want it.edit on 23-8-2012 by tbizzle because: (no reason given)

So you're not even worried about looters?
Game changers...well seeing we are on a UFO'ish site, that might give you a hint as to some
of my thoughts. :
I'm a Primativist and I hope it shows evidence of Mr. Zerzan's theory where he thinks that humans might have tried out city living then give it up when they see it's non sustainable, a few times throughout prehistory.
So my bias is to look for what I want to find and I think Pro-Civ people are biased too.
I think we need as many hands on deck as we can get with this site.
