Here is a picture of gobekli tepe:



It should be noted that this impressive site is only partially excavated, ie this is merely the start of what looks to be an enormous ancient site. They are suggesting it was built around 9,000 BC or earlier. It is 800m above sea level, the monoliths at the site weigh up to 20 tons, and all had to be transported to the site.

According to modern ball loving "science", this is what mankind was like back then:



Entirely incapable of forming a society, let alone building a monolithic site like gobekli tepe.

Science got this wrong. Again. Science gets a lot wrong. Science says we were little more than monkeys eating bananas in 10,000 BC, flinging faeces at one another shouting "ooga booga! ooga booga!", so when gobekli tepe comes along science goes mysteriously quiet.

Why? Because modern science is wrong about a lot of stuff, but hides behind this facade of intelligentsia to pull off its con trick, so that scientists can get funding to pay for their worthless existences. That's what it comes down to. Scientists will say whatever they need to in order to get funding, no matter how ridiculous it is, and Joe Public eat it up. Scientists are essentially prostitutes. They whore themselves for money.

I'm not a scientist and i don't give enough of a s**t to look it up, but isn't the position that homo sapiens moved out of africa several hundred thousand years ago.

It's not hard to imagine that there were peaks in some areas where development occurred and advances were made that were then lost. Look at Rome for example, something we have plenty of evidence for, they created technology and architectural achievements that the knowledge was lost and couldn't be replciated for 1000+ years...

Or the best example, Greek fire.

Don't bother. He's the only one in the world who is right and can't accept that scientific consensus changes with new discoveries. He must have been laughed out of grad school for suggesting pyramids were alien landing sites.

So basically a lost civilization that shakes up the general consensus on the history and advancement of humans...?

Putting aside all the anti-scientist ranting, I think that Duritz's point.

While I don't agree with putting aside all the anti-scientist ranting, I agree with the rest.

So you mean, what happens in science frequently, happened again and he can't hack it and whinges.

Yeah mushrooms are thought to have had contributed, as is fire and the ability for us to cook our food which unlocked loads of previous proteins that we never had up until then, another one was the thumb and the ability to pick things up and use tools, also the ability for us to think as a group and plan hunting wild animals together e.t.c theres lots of factors.
