Gobekli Tepe: Proto Indo European Settlement   qwK4Yxzsolc7UFMkLYjLLTl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBUQF1ynBdGblrT wPcv2AQe

40 ton megaliths, carbon-dating shows that the complex is about 12,000 years old, that means it was built around 10,000BC. By comparison, Stonehenge was built in 3,000 BC and the pyramids of Giza in 2,500 BC. Gobekli is thus the oldest such site in the world, by a mind-numbing margin. It is so old that it predates settled human life.

 

It is pre-pottery, pre-writing, pre-everything. Gobekli hails from a part of human history that is unimaginably distant, right back in our hunter-gatherer past. How did cavemen build something so ambitious? This is also near where Noah was said to have settled following the deluge that covered Atlantis.
