Has there been further developments on this story? Looking at sites such as this and Gobekli Tepe, it seems quite clear that high civilisation existed well into (and possibly before) the last Ice Age, and the conventional thinking that humans only started to organise around 9600 BC is a huge error. What is of particular interest is the siting of the Pyramid, again we have an incredibly old built artifact orientated along astronomical and geodesic lines. Again it is in a part of the world which ostensibly had no contact with the other parts of the world in which these structures pop up. Again, for some baffling reason, the mainstream of archaeological thought chooses not to acknowledge the common threads between these sites all over the world.
I get the distinct feeling that what we are looking at with this and other similar sites is being distorted by our modern world lens. I'd be eager to hear any further news anyone has. Meanwhile, this provides some good background of the current scenario.

Tks that's really interesting! I wonder if those 'stone logs' in those places could be dated to around the same time period as Padang, West Java?
It is always a dramatic encounter between fire and ice when a glacier-clad volcano erupts. Hot lava can flash melt portions of glacial ice triggering mudflows and causing devastation for miles. Or, if the lava is slow moving and the ice is massive, the ice can cool the lava, stopping it in its tracks. As the lava cools, it cracks into hexagonal columns that point toward the source of cooling.

This one is being rejected by archeologists. There is a megalithic site, but only on the top layer and not anything like 20,000 years old:
