Gobekli Tepe Summary
In 1994, almost forty years after The Urantia Books 1955 publication, excavations began at the Gobekli Tepe archaeological site in Turkey. The Gobekli Tepe site already reveals 50 engraved stone monoliths, some of them dating back to 12,000 years ago, that are at least 6,000 years older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids. A full excavation to the bottom of the site has not yet occurred, and only a small percentage of the site has been uncovered. The evidence suggests that the complex of round rooms with two especially large pillars in the middle were built for religious rather than practical purposes. Gobekli Tepe is widely acknowledged as one of the most important and mysterious archaeological sites in the world. The two main mysteries surrounding Gobekli Tepe are:
1) How did people this primitive cut, carve, move, and build with enormous stones in excess of 15 tons? The artifacts are inconsistent with prevailing theories about the development of civilization because every place else in the world, where ancient civilizations have built structures with enormous stones, there is also evidence of settled communities that practiced herding and agriculture. Prevailing theories about this region suggest that around 11,000 years ago, primitive man was just beginning to evolve from being a hunter-gatherer to a herder-farmer.
2) Why did this civilization decline over a period of several thousand years and then intentionally bury the site around 10,000 years ago? One of the peculiar aspects of the construction and art at Gobekli Tepe is that both become less refined over time. The older structures are significantly larger and more ornately decorated. There are clear indications that the site was intentionally buried but nothing to indicate why.
The Urantia Book answered these questions forty years before we discovered this mysterious site existed. The history of humanity provided by the authors of The Urantia Book recounts that a genetically superior and well-developed herder-farmer civilization existed in this area over 30,000 years ago. They also explain why this particular civilization experienced a prolonged genetic degradation and, therefore, cultural decline. Additionally, The Urantia Book says that, due to population pressures, inferior and more barbaric tribes drove out this more peaceful and advanced civilization.
Adding powerfully to the intrigue of this report is its relationship to the Adam and Eve Report and the Garden of Eden Report. These two reports also happen to reveal some of the most impressive corroborations of Urantia Book history documented so far by UBtheNEWS. The story of Adam and Eve in The Urantia Book is significantly different from the one found in the Old Testament and centers around a major genetic change that occurred 38,000 years ago. Starting with the Adam and Eve Report provides some background on the genetic issues that are relevant to this report; however, it is not necessary to read that one first in order to understand this one.
"Schmidt's German-Turkish team has also uncovered some 50 of the huge pillars, including two found in his most recent dig season that are not just the biggest yet, but, according to carbon dating, are the oldest monumental artworks in the world."
Probably part of a support platform used to support large crafts landing there.. An elaborate game set for a bored ancestor?
For those that don’t know, the “Urantia book” is one of those writings that purports to be channeled or written by non-human entities. In other words, New Age drivel of unknown provenance.
Or perhaps they are not 12,000 years old. Perhaps the dating science is incorrect.
Urantia ordinary ping.
Very interesting site - and intentionally buried, so I’ve read. “Ancient Aliens” did a report on it - not sure about the alien part but the place is amazing. The guy with the wild hair was pretty excited.
I’d take Genesis 6 and The Book of Enoch over any “Urantia” type books any time. They provide also a very good explanation about the “superior” genetics.
The archaeologists assume that the same people who operated the site also buried it.
Not necessarily. It may be that (as frequently occurred among ancient peoples) the site was a place of idolatry, human sacrifice and so forth and another group, led perhaps by a man such as Enoch, came and chased the wicked people away and buried the site. Later on, the site sprang up again for similar use.
this is the most fascinating archeological mysteries in the world, IMO.
There are numerous theories for interstellar travel involving use of other dimensions.
The various string theories require extra dimensions we cannot sense above the “normal” four, with the most popular right now positing 11.
It is not utterly unreasonable to assume an advanced civilization could exit normal space in their star system and re-enter it in ours, without passing through the intervening normal space, in much shorter time or possibly even instantaneously.
Do we have a clue how to do this or even if it’s possible? Nope. But we also cannot say it is impossible.
I think Gobekli Tepe is the area where Noah gathered up his zoo. I figure the ark was built to float and hold together, not to sail or navigate in large bodies of water. That would require building the ark in and area that would make it likely the ark would rise, move a short distance, and resettle on land, not water. My thinking is that Noah’s Ark settled in the Ararat mountains on the Iranian border. ...Cedar trees, like the ones growing in Lebanon and Syria once grew in abundance near Gobekli Tepe, and I suspect they are what Noah called gopher wood, tall and straight with plentiful sap.
Whether or not Noah, or the building of the ark, had anything to do with Gobekli Tepe is another speculation altogether.
An interesting aside is a brief account of some of the flood’s survivors encountering remnants of nephilim writings and structures, and covering them up. I don’t think this was in the book of Enoch, but maybe Jasher or Jubilees. I’m too lazy to look it up.
I believe Einstein theorized about whether space and time can bend - which was evidently proven in 2007 by a satellite called Gravity Probe B launched by NASA. Maybe the UFO pilots have figured out how to do the bending and make traveling those distances possible.
Urantra nonsense aside, our hunter-gatherer ancestors were seemingly hard wired for religion. Any look at today’s hunter-gatherers would support such an assertion. Archaeologists and anthropologists consistently underestimate the intelligence of our ancestors.
Considering that cro-magnon had an average brain capacity of 1600cc vs. 14 for "modern" man, yes. There is no possibility that the average Justin Bieber fan could survive on their wits in a world plunged into an ice age due to a superabundance of green technology.
Stones. We shoulda just stacked up some dang stones.
Keep talking like that and they'll accuse you of claiming the earth is flat....
And consistently overestimate our own.
We are in very tight agreement.
Indeed. I am amazed how little attention this gets, considering it basically turns history on it’s head. Stuff this sophisticated 12K years ago, nearly twice as old as anything else out there? I truly can’t believe how they can blow off the magnitude of it.
The laws of time and space are relative in the sense that they work differently in different parts of the universe. The Vedas explain this.
I still think there is a chance this is the worlds first ZOO!
The size of some of the critters back then, could be..
What will they dig up next?
Jimmy Hoffa? Clinton’s Legacy? Obama’s real birth certificate?
I wish I had pursued archeology, and digging. :-)
Gal I knew in college was into that - she actually interned on a couple professional digs.
Series! We lived together for about a year, she didn’t even own one!
I know you have a number of links to info on Gobeki Tepe.
Why not post the most intelligent and levelheaded and let some new folks learn about this amazing archeological site?
As I recall the site is at the top of a mountain so just dragging the enormous stones up to the site is an amazing feat.
This, and the recent discovery in Indonesia, which is just as old, are simply amazing.
You know the name or got a link? Haven’t heard of that one...
Yeah. I warned my people when we first came to this planet, “Cut up some stone and stack it up,” I sez, “you’ll drive them nuts,” but did they listen? Nooo. It was nothing but “Zortan, show them fire,” and “Zortan, give them a wheel,” and pretty soon the Zeta Reticulians move in and stack some rocks and there goes the neighborhood and who gets all the credit? Don’t even start me on the Sphinx. “Put Qzzlt’s head on a horse’s ass,” I sez, and look what the idiots came up with.
Stones. We shoulda just stacked up some dang stones.
Dude! When is your book coming out?
“this is the most fascinating archeological mysteries in the world, IMO.”
I think it’s pretty interesting, and as such deserves very cool mysterious music...and a movie!
With the fighing in Syria only 80 kilometers away, and a very porous border with Turkey.... farmers are already moving out of the areas near the border towns. Hopefully no stray rockets will come near this site -_-
