Redating the great sphinx of giza schoch
In 1994 however, a chance discovery by a Kurdish shepherd and the forgotten notes of a previous archaeological survey led German archaeologist Klaus Schmidt to the find of a lifetime.A series of megaliths located in Southeastern Turkey known as Gobekli Tepe indicate civilization may have existed much earlier than previously thought.Since the discovery, there have been many theories about what these megaliths have to tell us. Did the pillars that remain once support roofs to house the people in the area?What of the animal carvings on nearly every surface?Carbon dating, a method that determines the age of something by measuring how much of the radioisotope Carbon-14 is remaining, places the earliest time of construction at 11000-12000 years ago.That being the case, civilization has quite possibly existed much longer than previously speculated.Gobekli Tepe is certainly an interesting place and whether you believe in ancient alien involvement or not this is a fascinating glimpse into our own ancient past.~ David Slone Gobekli Tepe: The Greatest Story Finally Told?
Civilizations, which consist of human beings living in societies of religious worship, scientific advancements, and a political process have previously been thought to go as far back as the Sumerians (around 5000 BC).Gobekli Tepe, which literally translates to “potbelly hill” is located on a mountain ridge just northeast of Sanliurfa, Turkey.Looking south, one can see the border of Syria, which was once part of ancient Mesopotamia, or the Fertile Crescent. More than fifteen years of excavation and study haven’t brought us much closer to the secrets of this structure that challenges every theory presented in modern history.Could this structure have been orchestrated by these beings, using humans as slave labor?Schmidt believes that for this to have been done by human beings, it would have taken a minimum of 500 workers who would have had to have supplies brought in from elsewhere.
The “Ancient Aliens Theory” holds that at some point in our distant past extraterrestrials interacted with human beings.
