Above: Stacked rocks forming walls - African Metropolis;
Bellow: Stacked rocks forming walls - Göbekli Tepe;
The similarities are striking!

Gobekli Tepe is an awesome site.

The Mathematical Tabulation concerning the Year of "Adam's Creation" according to the Account of "Moses" (contained in the First Five Books of the Old Testament) is Absolute: 4004 BC ---Old Testament Study Manual Vol. 1 Latter Day Saint Edition This Calculation coincides with Bishop James Ussher (1581 - 1656). His Result: 4004 BC Note that this Conclusion Occurred During the Renaissance Era & thus, itself, was amidst MANY Forward Thinking Queries.
The First Latter Day Saint Leader, Joseph Smith, also agreed with the Chronology of Moses & went further a step to Calculate the Age of the Universe according to his Understand. And the Following Document agrees, from a "Christian" Perspective, by adding: "Today there are many Christians who accept the Reliability of Geologic Dating, but do not compromise the spiritual and historical inerrancy of God's word."
To this, I would like to add: If God's Word were Truly "Inerrant"-- Moses, as a repeater of "God's Words" would have therefore been "Inerrant", and Bishop Ussher's Chronology of Creation, based on his Calculations on the "Word of God through Moses", would have been Held as Admissible Fact in a Court Decision.

In Short, the Stories of ANY Religion are based in Myths cultivated by 200,000 years of Human History, which is Concluded upon in a More Accurate Manner in the following Scientific Article: Answer: The Bible doesn't say that the earth is 6000 years old. The Genesis creation account reveals a "RE-CREATION" [a refurbishing] of the earth, because something destroyed it and made it "without form and void."
Before that destruction, when God first made the universe and the earth... the Bible doesn't mention how long the earth had existed.
The chronology of the Genesis creation account doesn't say how old the earth is. It tells us that God remade the destroyed earth to "support man" and gives us an indication of how long man has been on it [approximately 5000 to 6000 years]. Note: There are comments associated with this question.

How do they know? Where is the evidence for that claim?
btw...I know, Göbekli Tepe is not a new site. It has been under excavation since 1994.
But it was immediately called temple.edit on 24.8.2012 by grobi77 because: (no reason given)
The same type of buildings have been found in Africa, dated to be 200,000 years old (the oldest Metropolis ever found on Earth).
