How did they carve these objects when according to the fossil record they were just starting to use basic tools at all!

Here is the link to the short blurb from the History channel. This is extremely exciting for many people who believe that we are NOT the apex of human development on this planet... as a follow up I'll post an opinion piece that is related.

Again and again it seems that ancient people were perhaps farther advanced than we are.

I would like to further add this link... discussing the potential for some of the changes that could have occured to force such a people out of their city.

Why is this in personal story's gray area?

Mate, no offence but all that stuff is old and I think everyone on this site has seen it.
I think if you look it's all been posted before. I thought you'd discovered something new.
Good luck.

Gobekli Tepe is indeed very interesting, and I believe we will find much older and more advanced yet.

If you're interested in this type of stuff, check out Slayer69's threads. Slayer is always on top of the latest finds.

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 this article:

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.
