There are many wonders of the ancient world which boggle our minds and inspire the heart, but what happens when a site of such precision and magnitude proves beyond a scientific doubt the existence of man to be older than anything known before?
Such is the case of Gobekli Tepe which puts human history as we know it into question. First uncovered in 1994 by a local shepherd in Turkey, Gobekli Tepe contains megaliths weighing 7 to 10 tons and stands 18 feet high.
Biblical history is commonly accepted and dates humanity at a mere 4,000 years old. Linda Moulton Howe proclaims that this discovery literally doubles the age of human history. But now, carbon dating firmly establishes its age at 12,000 years old – 7,000 years older than Stonehenge.
What is Gopekli Tepe? In the time of cavemen, just before the Ice Age, without the wheel, tools or agriculture, Gobekli Tepe appears with advanced technologies, detailed architecture and astronomically aligned with the cardinal directions.
Lying in the very heart of the cradle of civilization, this exquisite preservation is a gift of epic proportions.
Buried for 10,000 years, the sacred site was discovered quite by accident in 1994. German archaeologist Klaus Schmidt was called in for his expertise and what he unearthed created a quandary of our understanding of humanity.
The level of technique and detail is what first stands out. Richly carved in limestone, animals of the world are captured in both intricate carvings and sculptures. The impressive scope of wildlife depicts foxes, birds, boars and snakes.
The T-shaped megaliths soaring some 18 feet tall stand boldly in place. The carvings on these are carefully crafted with hands, arms and clothing. These towering beings all face each other in a near perfect circle.
Klaus Schmidt’s belief was that Gobekli Tepe was a sanctuary site, dubbed the World’s First Temple. No bones, no cooking utensils nor tools lie among the ruins. It appears that this was not a place where people lived. Only pristinely preserved structures standing in glorious contrast to the desert they now inhabit.
Gobekil Tepe appears out of the primitive beginnings of civilization when brutish humans gathered berries and hunted as nomads.
From these crude origins, a site that questions all accepted history appears out of nowhere. Did these neolithic men stumble into sophisticated craftsmanship? Or was there are a spark that inspired their skill?
Graham Hancock suggests there must be an outside influence that taught advanced masonry to humans. He calls this a Transfer of Technology.
Whether descended from the stars or a lost civilization which the world has forgotten, it is these lines of inquisition that inspire the greatest possibilities for the creation of Gobekli Tepe.
We must re-examine those stories and myths believed to be mere allegory to understand the implications of Gobekli Tepe . Atlantis, the Niphilim, the Annunaki and the Garden of Eden all are often connected to theories of what Gobekli Tepe could have been.
What was once believed to be mythology now becomes a valid line of inquiry. All doors of pseudo-science are now open to explore as a plausible hypotheses as we seek to recalibrate what we know of human origins.
If, as Hancock suggests, the achievements of Gobekli Tepe were a gift from an advanced civilization, we must explore the possibilities of Ancient Alien visitations which kick started humanity.
Resting in the fertile crescent, at exactly the birth of humanity, Andrew Collins reminds us of the Watchers (a race of Angels documented in the Book of Enoch) who guarded the Garden of Eden. Urfa (just miles from Gobekli Tepe) is said to be the legendary Garden of Eden, a terrestrial paradise rich with flora and fauna.
Though the Book of Enoch was omitted from the Bible, several versions found throughout the world legitimize it’s apocryphal legacy.
These Angels came from the heavens and laid with the wives of man to create the Nephilim. Known as the Annunaki to the Babylonians, Collins suggests the terms may be interchangeable documenting the simultaneous arrival of reptilian giants on the planet.
These advanced races came to assist humanity with arts and knowledge. Gobekli Tepe appears in this same moment and marks a huge leap in knowledge and skill that didn’t exist on the planet before.

Very difficult to confront the public or even the Vatican with this information?
It goes against their fabricated narrative?
