Pavel Somov, Ph.D.: Göbekli Tepe Complex of Interpretation

Pavel Somov, Ph.D., at the Huffington Post says to be careful about religious interpretations for the

Göbekli Tepe Complex of Interpretation.

Göbekli Tepe and History in the Remaking at Newsweek : All Our Theories Were Wrong

Göbekli Tepe is featured at Newsweek online in an article from the March 1, 2010 issue of Newsweek magazine. At History in the Remaking: A temple complex in Turkey that predates even the pyramids is rewriting the story of human evolution, Patrick Symmes writes: "
"The new discoveries are finally beginning to reshape the slow-moving consensus of archeology. Göbekli Tepe is 'unbelievably big and amazing, at a ridiculously early date,' according to Ian Hodder, director of Stanford's archeology program. Enthusing over the 'huge great stones and fantastic, highly refined art' at Göbekli, Hodder -- who has spent decades on rival Neolithic sites -- says: 'Many people think that it changes everything…It overturns the whole apple cart. All our theories were wrong.

[Klaus Schmidt - chief archaeologist at Göbekli Tepe - theorizes that] it was the urge to worship that brought mankind together in the very first urban conglomerations. The need to build and maintain this temple, he says, drove the builders to seek stable food sources, like grains and animals that could be domesticated, and then to settle down to guard their new way of life. The temple begat the city."
All of THEIR theories (the theories of mainstream archaeology and astronomy) were wrong.

OUR megalithic archaeological and astronomical theories, on the other hand, are looking better all the time.

We have always linked the stones to astronomy and both to ancient belief.
There is more to these stones than just having an ancient sundial in your backyard.

The ancients were doing important things with these ancient megalithic sites, as already discussed at the LexiLine Journal:

Gobekli Tepe is only 12 kilometers (about 7.5 miles) from Urfa (currently called Sanliurfa or Edessa), the legendary birthplace of the Biblical Abraham, and only 38 kilometers (23.75 miles) from his later residence at Haran. ...

The mainstream archaeologists use the absurd argument that since no grain was found at Gobekli Tepe, then it must predate the origins of agriculture. But the Amorite data tells us that their primitive state of culture prevailed in this ...

I definitely think that this is where the Hebrew calendar may have started and that Gobekli Tepe represents the location where the astronomical calculations necessary to start such a calendar were probably made. ...

[Reply by Andis Kaulins 2010: Gobekli Tepe will be shown by me later in a posting to LexiLine Journal to be the location from which Abraham and the Hebrews came and where they first instituted their calendar in the 4th millennium.] ...

Schmidt's rather esoteric idea that the temples were the reason for human urbanization and agricultural domestication is of course far-fetched. Forget that.
