They are there everywhere, from Egypt to Mexico. Surprisingly though, many of them are co-linear, and located close to the Earth Energy Grid points, called the Energy Vortices. Held highly as a form of architectural paradigm, the Pyramids have a very special place in the evolution of mankind, from being highly regarded places of worship, houses of knowledge to being created as a tomb of kings who were worshiped by their subjects. What’s so special about these pyramids? Why were they made, the technologies beyond these constructions, timelessness of their nature and how such precise constructions were possible – at a time when we know, accept and acknowledge that there was no “technology” available that could “assist” humans in achieving such a magnanimous feat of architecture?

The Great Pyramids of Egypt (Giza), perhaps the most spellbinding and talked about of all the pyramids

The Great Pyramids of Egypt (Giza), perhaps the most spellbinding and talked about of all the pyramids

Let’s start with Giza – it’s been long believed that the Pyramids of Giza were created by Emperor Khufu a Fourth Dynasty ancient Egyptian pharaoh, who ruled in the first half of the Old Kingdom period (26th century BC). Khufu was the second pharaoh of the 4th dynasty; he followed his possible father, king Sneferu, on the throne. It has also been established by mainstream scholars and Egyptologists that this Pyramid was created to serve as the final resting place of the Pharaoh. However after an extensive archaeological research (which did involve considerable excavation work) we have never comes across any tomb, mummy or even a sarcophagus that could substantiate the “final resting place” theory. On the contrary we have come across some evidences in form of mathematical figures that quite reasonably point out to a possibility of involvement of a much higher civilization capable of physics, mathematics and geography, demonstrating a high level of awareness of planetary and celestial bodies. Some of these figures are – (1) The Great Pyramid is the most accurately aligned structure in existence and faces true north with only 3/60th of a degree of error. The position of the North Pole moves over time and the pyramid was exactly aligned at one time (2) The Great Pyramid is located at the center of the land mass of the earth. The east/west parallel that crosses the most land and the north/south meridian that crosses the most land intersect in two places on the earth, one in the ocean and the other at the Great Pyramid (3) The four faces of the pyramid are slightly concave, the only pyramid to have been built this way – this “indent” used to cause a unique “play of light” on summer and winter solstices when it was created (4) The interior temperature is constant and equals the average temperature of the earth, 20 Degrees Celsius (68 Degrees Fahrenheit)

(4) The Pyramids of Giza quite identically replicated the Belt of The Orion – now that’s strange. Why would an ancient civilization look for the Orion in the night sky? Without any devices that could facilitate their “research” like telescopes maybe, unless they are asked to do so, by someone who knew where the constellation lied in the light sky (5) “At 10,450 BC – and at that date only- we find that the pattern of the pyramids on the ground provides a perfect reflection of the pattern of the stars in the sky. I mean it’s a perfect match-faultless – and it cannot be an accident because the entire arrangement correctly depicts two very unusual celestial events that occurred only at that time. ” – Robert Bauval. And that dates the construction of Pyramids of Giza further by another 7000 years or more. And this has been proven mathematically.

The pyramid of the sun – at Teotihuacan, Mexico.

Moving on to – Teotihuacan. This is my favourite ancient pyramid, and I have reasons to be absolutely in love with this structure. The pyramids of Teotihuacan comprised of the entire ancient city of Teotihuacan (now in Mexico). It’s one of the most prominent relics of Pre Incan Mesoamerican history. A throbbing metropolis with an estimated population of 125,000 at its prime, the city of Teotihuacán was established around 100 BC, and was famous for its multifamily residential complex. The city was characterised by the temple of the sun, temple of the moon, the temple of Quetzalcoatl and the avenue of the dead. The name Teōtīhuacān was given by the Nahuatl-speaking Aztec centuries after the fall of the city. The term has been glossed as “birthplace of the gods”, reflecting Nahua creation myths that were said to occur in Teotihuacan.

There are astounding similarities between Teotihuacán and the Pyramids of Giza (Egypt) – According to archaeologists (even the mainstream ones) the people who constructed the city of Teotihuacán not only of architecture, but of complex mathematical and astronomical sciences, and one of the things that is just incredibly amazing and different from all other ancient sites is the fact that from the air, Teotihuacan‘s city layout strangely resembles a computer circuit board with two large processor chips– the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid. Researchers have also found numerous and remarkable similarities to the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

Teotihuacan and The Orion

Teotihuacan and The Orion

|The most important of the visible similarities is the alignment to the constellation of Orion. Just like the Pyramids of Egypt these are aligned to the Orion’s belt – “as above so below”, was the idea behind this, but the question is why? Why replicate the Orion, what was so special about that constellation, Orion and the Cygnus? There are more than one site across the world that have tried and replicate the Orion constellation. In addition to this there are other mathematical similarities that are irrefutable. For instance – (1) The base area of both these pyramids are the same (2) the height of the Pyramid of the sun is exactly half of the height of the pyramid of Giza.

And these are not mere mathematical coincidences – when the layout of the Giza pyramids are examined vis-à-vis the layout of Teotihuacan, it looks similar as though both of these are based on the same blue print. Could they have been inspired by the same builders? If yes then is it possible that Teotihuacán is older, much older than what has been proposed by mainstream scholarship?


Some places across the globe, for years, have baffled the scientific community and historians alike. These places are mysterious and possess characteristics that have not been explained scientifically, even after decades or perhaps centuries of study and research that have gone into them. Radio frequency failure, compass malfunction, aircraft going off the radar and other unexplained malfunctions of navigational and electronic equipment are some of the bizarre events witnessed at these places over the years. Names such as Zona Di Silencio or the Zone of Silence, in Northern Mexico, The Bermuda Triangle, The Devils Triangle – off the Japanese coast, The Carnac Stones in France, The Gate of the Gods are predominant names in this enlistment. Here we try to find a few answers to some of these perplexities that have intrigued mankind over the years.

Perhaps the most famous or rather infamous of all the mysterious places is the Bermuda Triangle. For centuries this stretch of ocean covering more than 500,000 sq miles located between Miami, Puerto Rico and Bermuda have tested the intelligences of scientists, experienced sailors and military investigators alike. Philip Coppens observes, “we witness planes disappearing, weird lights being seen and a whole bunch of other weirdness in this tight corner of the Atlantic. Crews of ships have just disappeared without any sign of struggle and absolutely no trace of them have been found over the years”. What caused the ships to disappear, why have the aeronautical and navigational equipment stopped working or changed course by itself? Historical navigational records show, the anomalies of Bermuda Triangle is much older than most people realize. In fact it all started with Christopher Columbus’ navigational log. He being such a respected sailor and an esoteric navigator, his logs about the journey to the new world is considered remarkably accurate. As he approached the area called the Bermuda Triangle, he witnessed strange phenomena such as compass malfunctions, the following night he witnessed a strange ball of fire hit the ocean. Also he witnessed weather abnormalities and a series of other events that cannot be explained as logically foreseen. So clearly, the events at Bermuda Triangle is not an urban myth that started in the threshold of 20th century, its as old as there are accounts of people going into that area.

About 450 years after Columbus on December 5, 1945 the USAF faced the Bermuda Triangle’s most perplexing mystery. At 14:00 HRS, 5 torpedo bombers flew from an airbase at Fort Lauderdale, Florida on a routine training exercise. Not long into the 2 hour long mission, all 5 planes were suddenly gone. The Mystery was compounded when USAF sent a rescue mission and it too disappeared. 6 planes, all flown by skilled pilots, had flown into oblivion. This incident sent shock waves across the United States Air Force and other defense establishments, because this was modern era, we had equipments to trace them, we had radio, we had the RADAR and yet 6 planes had vanished without trace. According to Philip Coppens, “as if all of these aircraft have been snapped out of our reality, into ‘something else’ and of course what that something else is, that’s the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle”.

Over the years only a few have lived to tell us what anomalies occur at the Bermuda Triangle. However, American pilot Bruce Gernon is an exception. In 1970, Gernon, his father and a business associate were flying from the Bahamas to Florida, when Gernon reported seeing a strange cloud directly in front of their plane. Then as they approached, Gernon reported seeing the cloud form a doughnut shaped hole or a vortex. “The hole was initially large but gradually narrowed down, and as I entered the ‘tunnel’, a strange thing happened. It was like looking down into a rifle barrel. It started swirling slowly counter clockwise and I witnessed some intense electricity and there were flashes going on and off and all I could see was a grayish/ yellowish fog, I call it electronic fog. I noticed that my instruments were malfunctioning and at the same time I witnessed this unbelievable sensation”. Gernon says when he finally exited the tunnel he radioed the Miami ATC, but they could not see his plane on their Radar screen. “And then about three minutes later the radio operator came online and he said he located me over Miami, and I couldn’t believe it because I had been flying only for over 33 minutes, whereas the distance should have been about an hour and 33 minutes”. Could such a discrepancy in time and distance happen and could ETs be using such gateways to travel to earth?

Herein comes the scientific angle. According to Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, it is possible. Einstein’s theory of being able to bend space using a gravitational pull, could be applied by the Alien crafts, by using these places to acquire and harness those extra amounts of energy, warp the distances and thus attain a burst of speed in a direction of where they want to go. According to another thought process, “whenever there is an energy emission from a higher dimension or a higher plane, the energy emission would be in form of Vortices, so Vortices and Gateways are the same thing”. Since wormholes are theoretically located all across the universe, could similar gateways be used for traveling across the universe?

Also could these gateways exist in smaller areas on Earth, and strange electromagnetic levels be the key to discovering them? In most of such reports we find a strange consistency involving strange electromagnetic phenomenon in form of strange vapor or cloud. According to David Childress, “its quite possible that Bermuda Triangle is one such inter-dimensional doorway that’s used by these Aliens”. With reports of UFOs appearing and ships and portals disappearing, some believe that Bermuda Triangle is a portal that works in both directions. So if, as Ancient Alien theorists believe, that this portal has been used by ETs to visit earth since antiquity, might we one day use the same portal to visit them? Also if there is a portal in the open waters of Bermuda, might there be more such portals on Land?

A little over 400 miles south of El Paso Texas, in northern Mexico, stretches a remote and rugged section of high desert. This area near the town of Ceballos is referred to by the locals as Zona Del Silencio or the Zone of Silence. Its at the epicenter of some of the strangest phenomena ever recorded on earth. Nothing seems to work in this area, the cellphone drops out of range, the radio doesn’t catch any signal, the compass just keeps spinning, its completely bizarre. There are strange rocks everywhere, we even witness strange mutated animals in the area. The Zone of Silence was first identified by Francisco Sarabia, a Mexican pilot who claimed that his radio mysteriously failed to function while flying over the area. Its located between the same parallel as the Bermuda Triangle i.e. between 26°N and 28°N of equator and as a result goes and connects to the Egyptian Pyramids. On July 11, 1970 when the USAF lost an Athena Missile that was launched from its facility at Green River, Utah. It was programed to land  700 miles away at the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. But due to some unexplained reason, the missile flew several hundred miles past its range to the Zone of Silence. According to a NASA Spokesperson, the missile mysteriously got pulled into the Zone of Silence. But this is not the only thing that got ‘pulled’ into this area. The Ancient Alien Theorists believe that an unusually large number of meteorites have crashed into the area. According to Logan Hawkes – the author of The Mexico less Traveled, “there is a very strong magnetic signature to this place and this has been proven scientifically, however we need more research to establish, whether this magnetism is strong enough to pull space debris like meteorites. And I don’t think such research is happening right now“.

Starting 3000 years ago,  the Anasazi Indians inhabited the area to the North of Zona Del Silencio, today’s American Southwest. The word Anasazi means Ancient Ones and they paid great attention to the stars. Scientists have established that at about 1054 AD, a supernova explosion was visible from earth. Many believe that that first ever drawing of this event was found inside an Anasazi cave dwelling.  South of the Zone of Silence, established cultures like the Maya, seem to have exact knowledge of such celestial events. Its often debated that Anasazi and the Mesoamerican cultures often used the Zone of Silence as their meeting place. But what other connections exist between these cultures and are they of celestial origin? Both the Anasazi and the Mesoamericans were great believers in Sky People – of beings who came from the sky. And the description of these heavenly people is consistent in their reports, as tall, pale skinned, white haired beings, and that is not indigenous to the region, but does match the South American descriptions of their Gods. According to the local legends, these ancient Gods made themselves known to the ancient people, is possible that these heavenly people are still letting them known today? We have established reports of UFO sightings in the region and its considerably higher than any other area in the vicinity. One of the most prominent ones came from the town of Ceballos one summer afternoon, when hundreds of people reported an object hovering over the desert on the outskirts of the town. It was described to be about 100 mt wide and had multicolored lights flashing, it wasn’t doing anything, but was just hovering over the desert. After a while it just ‘took off’ and headed towards the Zone of Silence. According to the Ancient Alien Theorists, there is a connection between the magnetic signature of this place, the alien Gods and the present day UFO sightings, however are there more such places across the world that could provide us more direct evidences of such occurrences in the past?

Located about 800 miles South East of Lima, Peru on the shores of Lake Titicaca is a sight that have mystified visitors from all around the world. Shamans still come and offer prayers at a rock wall on this high plateau as they have done for generations. This is called Puerta del Hijo Marka or the Gate of the Gods. Its a doorway carved into solid rock. According to David Childress, ” it really appears appears to be a Gateway, but it doesn’t really go anywhere”. Its literally in the middle of nowhere, at 14,000 ft, yet this is a perfect rectangle carved out of a solid block of rock and right at the bottom its got another indent in it, that looks like a door. The Peruvians refer to it as the Gate of the Gods. But the baffling question is, why would someone make a doorway, in the middle of nowhere at 14000 ft and one that doesn’t go anywhere? There has to be a way to get across this. According to Inca legend, the first priest Amaro Muro is said to have traveled through this doorway, using a special object to activate it turning the solid rock into what is known as the Star Gate. This Star Gate was activated by help of a golden disc and this golden disc fell from the sky. He held the golden disc into the gateway in a recessed area, and the gateway activated and he passed though it, never to be seen again. Archeologists have noticed a depression at the center of the doorway, and it is believed it was perhaps this depression, where the golden disc was placed. This disc was made of gold and other precious metals, and perhaps was a technological device which had the ability to open up inter-dimensional gateways. Furthermore, according to the local legends, these priests were called space brothers and came from other world.  May they have come to earth through this Gateway? However, could a device to activate this door actually exist? And if so, where would the doorway lead? The Gate of the Gods could well be one end of a wormhole, a type of portal used to connect to another part of the universe or another dimension. Wormholes are an accepted element of Theoretical and Particle Physics. But have they actually existed on some of worlds most mysterious places. The aliens are perhaps coming to earth in inter dimensional crafts that allow then to travel through hyper space. And they can travel between their dimension and ours in literally no time. But to do that they have to travel through these wormholes and enter planet earth through a portal. What if one end of the portal does really exist at Puerta del Hijo Marka? Does it qualify for a reason why Peru has always been considered as a focal point of UFO and ET activities? Lake Titicaca has all sorts of strange lights associated with it. All the more, people have reported seeing strange blue balls of fire and even alien crafts coming out of the lake, and even reported seeing beings in some of the sightings. And these being are reported to have been tall, pale skinned and white haired, completely non indigenous to the local population. Another way the Ancient Aliens might have traveled is through Teleportation. But is it possible to make an object disappear at one place and make it appear in another? At the Max Planck Institute, they have already been able to dematerialize sub atomic particles, and made them reappear somewhere else. This could be a secret the ancient people knew. The area around Puerta del Hijo Marka still holds the energy and its evident as you approach the area.

But is Puerta del Hijo Marka the only mysterious place in Peru? Are there other mysterious places here? High up in the mountains of Peru, 850 miles from the Gate pf the Gods, is a breathtaking 2 mile long plateau another area of reportedly high energy. For centuries it has been a powerful scared place among the Incan people. Its called Markawasi. Markawasi is said to have very bizarre energy patterns. According to Kathy Moore, “Markawasi is a place of wizards and genies and people treat it with a great deal of veneration. When people go there, they experience a special kind of energy – or a state of Euphoria”. Most geologists believe that the stone figures at Markawasi are naturally formed through weathering and other natural processes. But is there more here than first meets the eye? Some consider Markawasi as a massive sculpture garden left behind by some ancient civilization. Could this then be not just a collection of rocks, but a sanctuary of stone monuments made by ancient civilization hundreds of thousands years ago. Researcher Daniel Rousseau was the first to make this claim in 1952. According to Kathy Moore, “He was shown a photograph of a colossal head made of stone, up in the high mountains above Lima. He made an expedition just to see the stone face, and one at Markawasi, he was astonished to see there were hundreds of such carved stones”. Among these figures people have been able to decipher few very prominent ones:

If these figures are man made, who may have carved them? The local legend says that its a place of ancient giant gods. In fact when the Spanish chroniclers came to Peru and investigated the shamanic traditions there, they were told about God named Viracocha who came in garb of man to inspect his territory, and he had given men different orders, and there were some who disobeyed them, and he promptly turned them to stone. The name Markawasi provides a clue to the time and origin of the place. The name itself predates the Incan Empire. According to Daniel Rousseau, the name Markawasi probably meant two storied house and referred to the strange complex of buildings located on the site. Rousseau further states that the ancient people who built Markawasi were called the Masma and supposedly, Peru was not their only home. Robert M Schoch observes, “The Masma were very ancient, very advanced civilization, who seemed to have had a global existence and have traveled worldwide at a very early period, in prerecorded history. Rousseau spent a lot of time looking for evidences of this civilization and seemed to have finally found it in Markawasi. He thought Markawasi was some kind of a sculpture garden built by the Masma”. If a global community of such advancement existed, whet happened to it? Was it, as some believe wiped out in the great flood, described in the Bible? Was this created as a record of events or a memento that could be passed on to the future generations, because they thought they were not going to live forever and they wanted to leave some kind of a record or warning for future generations. The next perplexing question is, if such an advanced civilization existed in antiquity, where did they come from. According to Author, George Hunt Williamson, “Markawasi was a sacred forest where the Ancient Aliens met to plan for the future and many UFO researchers believe they are still returning to this day”. David Childress says, “the most famous UFO photograph from Peru, was taken by a businessman near Markawasi, who himself was trekking up to the Markawasi Plateau, and when he saw down the valley he saw a bright silvery disk floating in the valley in broad daylight. This happened in the 70s”. Does Markawasi emit a special kind of energy and if so, have they been attracting visitors for thousands of years. Although we do not clearly understand the anomalies in these areas, however the presence of a high energy emissions, electromagnetic impulses, geomagnetic anomalies, subterranean electricity and such possibilities cannot be undermined or overruled.

Is there a reason why these inter dimensional portals appear on certain spots on our planet? Is there a pattern that could be formed. Is there a code and if yes, did our ancestors know about it? According to the ancient Astronaut theorists, the energy fields around the world are not randomly located. they are connected by what is known as the World Energy Grid – a geometric pattern of energy that crisscrosses the globe. According to David Childress, “the energy fields across the world are stronger in some areas as compared to the others, and in these areas they form sort of a Vortex, thereby making the energy more useful in its sense”. The Earth Grid Theory States that the Earth Energy Fields are connected with one another by means of a geometric pattern, and this has existed since time earth was created.

The concept of Energy Grid, for our civilization extends back to the Pythagorean School of Thought in ancient Greece. The theory states that the Earth is a dodecahedron (δωδεκάεδρον) and the geometric shapes and forms is all that matter is composed of, including the Earth. Hence it draws a parallel between them causing an energy interchange at certain prominent points of the  dodecahedron. Another puzzling phenomena brought to notice by French UFO Investigator Mitchel, was that the UFO sightings do not happen in random. There is a route map and a pattern to where the UFO sightings happen and it follows not only the exact longitude patterns, but also the Earth Energy Grid. Mitchel’s report was based upon every single UFO sighting since the Roswell incident. Scientists now believe that the concentration of energy levels and UFO sightings are not a matter of coincidence. The megalithic structures in these special locations were crested to amplify the energy fields. Its a Theory known as Geomancy. By creating pyramid shaped structures and tall stone obelisks, we can magnify and channelize this power. It works on earth exactly the same way acupuncture works on the human body. In Europe, thousands of km of land stretches have been logically connected through straight lines, they are called Lead Lines. These lead lines stretch all the way from England, to France down to Italy. And on these lead lines we have names of places, and the common factor to all of these names is the word ‘star’. This cannot be attributed to the stone age man. Someone told them to do so. And they most often were called Gods, or people who came from the skies. So the question is were these people extraterrestrials? Unless the scientific community is logically able to derive answers to some of the most mysterious places on earth, we will only be left with lingering questions, and ones that cannot be answered with the approach the conventional scholarship have been taking since time immemorial. Are some of these places really inter dimensional portals, did the ancient aliens transport them through these Star Gates to another dimension. We are only left with perplexing question, that we need answers to. And answers will come only if we THINK.

Wikipedia says, “The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. They were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. The high, arid plateau stretches more than 80 kilometres (50 mi) between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Pampas de Jumana about 400 km south of Lima. Although some local geoglyphs resemble Paracas motifs, scholars believe the Nazca Lines were created by the Nazca culture between 400 and 650 CE. The hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas, llamas, and lizards.

The lines are shallow designs made in the ground by removing the ubiquitous reddish pebbles and uncovering the whitish ground beneath. Hundreds are simple lines or geometric shapes; more than seventy are designs of animal, bird, fish or human figures. The largest figures are over 200 metres (660 ft) across. Scholars differ in interpreting the purpose of the designs, but they generally ascribe religious significance to them.”

The mainstream scientific community have a consensus about a few points on Nazca:

  1. The site is ancient
  2. Its located at an arid highland
  3. The designs are complex and vast
  4. The landscape stretches over 50 Miles
  5. A huge effort has been put to create the lines at Nazca
  6. Some of them also make geometric sense

However, the mainstream scholarship has not been able to convincingly answer quite a few questions about the Nazca Lines as well. Who created this? Why was it created? How did ancient man manage the magnitude of the drawings? Because all of the Nazca figurines start taking form when looked at, from a height. So without an aerial form of supervision, its virtually impossible to create something of that magnitude. Also what purpose did these lines serve when they were made? The answers provided by mainstream scholarship is somewhat a sanitized view based upon speculations. The Nazca lines could have had a religious significance, however a different purpose, that they could have served, cannot be completely ruled out.

If the Alien GODS from outer space did visit our planet in antiquity, how would our ancestors have communicated with them? And wouldn’t there be physical evidences of the time they spent here? Perhaps a few such evidences could be located in the Nazca Desert of Peru. There over a 50 kilometer stretch, countless geometric lines and figures decorate the landscape. When you take an Arial view of the landscape you see a few lines. And these lines do look like ‘air strips’, they start and end very systematically and stretch over very long distances ending into a so called ‘Air Strip’. The longest of them is over 23 kilometer long, and contains not a single curve – that’s unbelievable.

And among these lines you find drawing of various animals such as spiders, monkeys, fishes, hummingbird and apes and so on. The magnitudes of these drawings are so enormous that they do not make any sense on the ground and are only visible from the air. There are conflicting views and theories about these lines varying from irrigation ditches, astronomical calendars or pathways used for religious purposes.

Someone has created these, thousands of years ago, with precision that we cannot match even today. However we are still not clear how, why and for whom these lines were made. The most surprising feature of the Nazca desert according to me is that fact that the table land over which the ‘Air Strip’ like likes are created, seem to be artificially flattened. You look at the hills around you, they have their summits, but here, the summit is missing, it’s gone. And there is no trace of the rubble; it’s not there in the valley below or anywhere in the vicinity. Now that demands an explanation. Furthermore, we are yet not clear about why man would invest so much of time and energy into creating something of this magnitude and precision.

Another intriguing question is, why Nazca? It has been geologically proven that Nazca is one place on earth that is abundant in minerals and ores that constitute our planet. Once there, you could make a precise assessment of what this planet could consist of.

However the mainstream archeologists as always, have vastly differed from this alternative view, and have maintained that Nazca is a work of artistic self expression of man, and that the “artworks” have nothing to do with someone capable of flight. However the artistic self expression hypothesis doesn’t hold much ground, because standing on the surface of earth these figures make no sense. They are so vast, that it could have only been “properly visible” and appreciated by someone from a great height. Since there are no higher mountain peaks in the vicinity, the “great height” could only have been achieved through flight. And who could be flying at those times, other than Extraterrestrials? I hope someday, mainstream archeology would accept this– and not the sterilized view of the world as they continue to provide today.

Located about 500 miles away from the crowded streets of Istanbul, is Sanliurfa in eastern Turkey. There over a dusty hilltop in 1994, a Shepard noticed a piece of stone sticking out of his field. He began to dig around the stone, eventually unearthing a 19 foot pillar. Its edges were precise and rising from the middle was a relief carving of a very strange animal. Upon closer examination it was determined that the finely chiseled stones have been carved by expert stone masons, using advanced tools. When the news of this discovery reached the scientific community, one fact became obvious, a Kurdish Shepard has stumbled upon the whats could be the most astonishing archeological discovery in modern times. A site called Göbekli Tepe.

Göbekli Tepe is the oldest human-made place of worship yet discovered. Until excavations began, a complex on this scale was not thought possible for a community so ancient. The massive sequence of stratification layers suggests several millennia of activity, perhaps reaching back to the Mesolithic. The oldest occupation layer (stratum III) contains monolithic pillars linked by coarsely built walls to form circular or oval structures. So far, four such buildings, with diameters between 10 and 30m have been uncovered. Geophysical surveys indicate the existence of 16 additional structures.

Stratum II, dated to Pre-Pottery Neolithic B (PPNB) (7500–6000 BC), has revealed several adjacent rectangular rooms with floors of polished lime, reminiscent of Roman terrazzo floors. The most recent layer consists of sediment deposited as the result of agricultural activity.

The monoliths are decorated with carved reliefs of animals and of abstract pictograms. The pictograms may represent commonly understood sacred symbols, as known from Neolithic cave paintings elsewhere. The carefully carved figurative reliefs depict lions, bulls, boars, foxes, gazelles, asses, snakes and other reptiles, insects, arachnids, and birds, particularly vultures and water fowl. At the time the shrine was constructed the surrounding country was much lusher and capable of sustaining this variety of wildlife, before millennia of settlement and cultivation resulted in the near–Dust Bowl conditions prevailing today.

Vultures also feature in the iconography of the Neolithic sites of Çatalhöyük and Jericho; it is believed that in the early Neolithic culture of Anatolia and the Near East the deceased were deliberately exposed in order to be excarnated by vultures and other birds of prey. (The head of the deceased was sometimes removed and preserved—possibly a sign of ancestor worship.) This, then, would represent an early form of sky burial, as practiced today by Tibetan Buddhists and Zoroastrians in India.

Few humanoid forms have surfaced at Göbekli Tepe, but include a relief of a naked woman, posed frontally in a crouched position, that Schmidt likens to the Venus accueillante figures found in Neolithic north Africa; and of at least one decapitated corpse surrounded by vultures. Some of the pillars, namely the T-shaped ones, have carved arms, which may indicate that they represent stylized humans (or anthropomorphic gods). Another example is decorated with human hands in what could be interpreted as a prayer gesture, with a simple stole or surplice engraved above; this may be intended to represent a temple priest.

For the last 15 years the German archeological team has been excavating this land and they have been performing ‘carbon dating’ as fat as they go. And it has taken them 15 years to uncover about 5%-7% of a gigantic civilization. So far the archeologists have been able to locate circles upon circles, perfect circles – with carved stone pillars 19 feet tall and weighing 15 tonnes each. Each of these pillars have been carved out of single block of stone and have been intricately decorated with relief feature of animals and birds. Tests have proved that Göbekli Tepe is almost 12,000 years old. Almost 7,000 years older than Mesopotamia, long heralded as the cradle of human civilization. No other site is this advanced and its this old. The chance discovery of Göbekli Tepe has doubled the age of human civilization.

In words of Graham Hancock, “We have this gigantic site with huge circular megalithic structure, that stands there as a mystery, asking us to go figure how was this done, whats the background to this. We have no idea, who made them. They just come out of the dark of the last ice age, about which we know nothing, and enter this stage of history already fully formed. And to my mind this is indicative of a major forgotten episode of human history”. Could the discovery of Göbekli Tepe, change our understanding of human history, and might prove that mankind’s most puzzling myths might just be based in facts. To put things into perspective, the site of Göbekli Tepe is more than 12000 years old, that’s 7000 years earlier than Stonehenge and Great Pyramid. So clearly we have something that contradicts the global understanding of the evolution of Human Civilization.

Curiously, after 15 years of serious excavation, archeologists have failed to recover a single stone cutting tool, nor have they found any agricultural implements. The history of Göbekli Tepe is further compelled by ancient stone carvings found throughout the site. Located about 300 miles from Mount Ararat, the site many Biblical scholars believe to be the resting place of Noah’s Ark, the relief carvings of Göbekli Tepe suggest a time in the region’s history when the indigenous animal population may have been of a totally different origin. But do these provide any evidence of the great flood as described in the Bible. According to Graham Hancock, “Archeologists are aware of more then 2000 myths about the great flood”. Scholars believe that stories of a cataclysmic flood as described in the Bible is also found on the pillars of Göbekli Tepe. If this is true, that would push the date of the Great Flood, to the end of the last ice age. That’s thousands of years earlier than the Biblical period.

Perhaps more compelling than that is the question, who built Göbekli Tepe? What was its purpose? And how did such a site remain in such pristine condition, for more than 10000 years? Philip Coppens seems to have an answer to this. According to Coppens, “If you look at Göbekli Tepe, this site was carefully placed under the sand. It was actually buried”. However no answer has been found to why the site was buried. It could have been to save the site from invaders, or perhaps to preserve it, in a hope to return to it some day. No matter what the reason is, the fact remains that the site of Göbekli Tepe is more then 12000 years old, and that has logically pushed the genesis of human civilization by more then 70000 years. And this could well be just the beginning. If human civilization could have thrived and existed 12000 years ago, would it be too outlandish to believe that, there were very advanced human civilizations existing in the highlands of Bolivia about 17000 years ago.

Your call. After all I am convinced.
