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.

Long-lost Armenian ship, the stuff of legend, to become living museum in the Caribbean: Explorers unravel mystery of “Quedagh Merchant” hijacked 1698

Long-lost Armenian ship, the stuff of legend, to become a “living museum” in the Caribbean: Explorers unravel mystery of the “Quedagh Merchant” hijacked in 1698
by Emil Sanamyan
"According to British records, Kidd captured the Quedagh Merchant (also known as Cara Merchant) in January 1698 from Armenian traders near the coast of India and then sailed on it to the Caribbean....

"When I first heard of this Armenian ship in early 2007, I thought to myself: right, this is just another fable that Armenians like to brag about among themselves," recalled Pavel Galoumian, who together with his wife Isabella Agad, was recognized at the U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo on June 1 at an event dedicated to the discovery of the shipwreck.

But after checking British sources, Mr. Galoumian learned that the Armenian provenance of the vessel was well-documented....

... the Galoumians - he a physicist who had worked at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva and she a professional translator ...

... joined with sea enthusiasts from Yerevan's Ayas Nautical Research Club led by Karen Balayan, who in 2004-6 had sailed around Europe in a replica of the 13th-century Armenian vessel Kilikia.

In a sketch, "The Quest for the Armenian vessel: Quedagh Merchant," prepared in March 2007, Ayas members said that beginning that December they would undertake an expedition to the Caribbean Sea aboard a 46-foot yacht, Anahit, sailing under the flag of the Republic of Armenia....

But just days after the Anahit sailed from the United States came the stunning news reports.

Researchers from University of Indiana (IU), acting on a tip to Dominican officials from a local resident, found what appeared to be the long-lost Quedagh Merchant....

Tutankhamun: Hawass of Egypt Supreme Council of Antiquities to reveal King Tut DNA at February 17 Press Conference: Discovery News

Who was Tutankhamun really?

Only DNA can tell.

In one week, reports Rossella Lorenzi of Discovery News in her article
Hawass To Announce King Tut DNA Results,
we are surely going to have a much better idea about Tut's true identity.

Paul Schemm of the Associated Press on January 31, 2010 wrote at the Washington Post

DNA examinations like those of Tutankhamun are to conducted in the future on the mummies of the Pharaohs and other important personages from the Pharaonic era.

Norman Hammond, Archaeology Correspondent, writes:
"Evidence for the world’s earliest seafaring has emerged from an archaeological survey in Crete....

What sort of water-craft might have been used remains a matter of speculation, but it seems that our forebears were forging their way across Homer’s “wine-dark sea” tens of millennia earlier than anybody had supposed."

Bible Possibly Written Centuries Earlier, Texts Suggests

Bible Possibly Written Centuries Earlier, Texts Suggests
"Scientists have discovered the earliest known Hebrew writing — an inscription dating from the 10th century B.C., during the period of King David's reign....

'It indicates that the Kingdom of Israel already existed in the 10th century BCE and that at least some of the biblical texts were written hundreds of years before the dates presented in current research,' said Gershon Galil, a professor of Biblical Studies at the University of Haifa in Israel, who deciphered the ancient text."
