I will never understand the reversed logic which says that standing up carved stones 12,000 years ago means we, as a species, have regressed today.
When archeologists find a 12,000 year old skyscraper buried in the West Asian desert, then I'll accept that there was some kind of mass erasure of
human understanding where we had to restart our learning process. Until then, I'll stick to my theory: it wasn't aliens, nor any advanced Atlantean
civilizations. It was us. Plain, simple, hard-working human beings.
We raised the stones of Gobekli Tepe.
We built the stone-step ziggurats of Mesopotamia.
We shaped the pyramids at Giza.
We stood the obelisks of Egypt.
We arranged the massive stones at Stonehenge.
We moved the Thunder Stone in Russia.
When human beings are determined, we can do anything
Further, History Channel's bias is very present in the video you linked. From
The researchers matched up about 130 of the blades, which would have been used as tools, with their source volcanoes... (snip) ...The blades are
made of obsidian, a volcanic glass rich with silica, which forms when lava cools quickly.
So they did use tools, which the video makes a big point of saying they didn't. This is meant to sway the viewer in a particular direction. That
being: these were super-advanced people in a civilization which could move massive stones without tools. As you now know they did use tools, you can
realize the History Channel's view for the lie that it is.
Additionally, when the video says they found abstract human shapes carved into the stones, what they really mean are they have seen (most likely) low
resolution photos of carvings which they cannot identify. One of the biggest, and most interesting elements to the site, when news of it came to the
States through National Geographic, was the lack of human figures
on the carvings.
There were no depictions of man, or traditional West Asian deities like Baal, Shaushka, or Yahweh, who became the religious idols of the tribes which
later settled Turkey. In fact, not even a Mother Goddess, which has almost universally been found at megalithic sites, was found at Gobekli Tepe. So
the site is not a stone temple reference to Noah's Ark, or any Judeo-Christian religious myth.
It is most likely a cosmopolitan location used for trade, worship, and education. This would also account for why there have not surfaced any tombs or
burials at the location. People did not live there permanently, as they did in temples across the rest of the ancient West Asian sites.
Not to say the site isn't extremely interesting. But it is interesting enough, without people and TV channels inventing lies to make it seem more
interesting. Figure out the real mysteries before you invent fake ones.
