Comment on Stuck in the Neolithic

gamma Sat, Nov 29, 2008
Hello. I often wonder about scales and time. You know, like in India where they used to compete in who will say a bigger number. This article is this number: 11000 years.

"Six miles from Urfa, an ancient city in southeastern Turkey, Klaus Schmidt has made one of the most startling archaeological discoveries of our time: massive carved stones about 11,000 years old, crafted and arranged by prehistoric people who had not yet developed metal tools or even pottery. The megaliths predate Stonehenge by some 6,000 years. The place is called Gobekli Tepe, and Schmidt, a German archaeologist who has been working here more than a decade, is convinced it's the site of the world's oldest temple."

Imagine! Those people didn't just see the ice age, they wondered which one - the first the second... I wonder do they know better how humanity is done, performed, or how to be contacted by aliens or develop genetic memory.
