    simple math & geology shows
    humans around for 1.5 million years
    ice age comes and goes every 100K years
    and yet for some reason
    most humans think that civilization is 5,000 years old
    and everyone was a caveman till then

      Yeah Graham Hancock accurately points out how even if there is evidence of caveman and primitive stone tools etc that doesn’t automatically mean ALL humans were at that general intellectual/technological/cultural level at the time.. There existence says little about the possibility of advanced cultures co-existing during that time. 

      Its bizarre people scoff at this idea as if its totally insane (gee wonder why, see previous link ;] )… Reason being that even today, despite our global and highly “advanced” technological society we can still go can find primitive tribal cultures all over the fucking globe.

      In my opinion the most interesting take on all of this is when you realize that graham hancock, tony wright, mckenna, etc..are all sort of saying the same thing.

         Who said you could challenge stuff and things? My public education, dictated by wicked rich people. Whom provided textbooks and curriculum which does not include this brand of thinking. This does not parse! Now I feel stupid, How dare you make me feel stupid!

          Hate to break the news to you, but the education system has been hijacked by the leftists for decades.

          Just try to disagree with one of these socialists and see how far your education gets you.

            to be right is to be wrong, and to be left, is well… to be right.
            we generally don’t base ideas on racist, oppressive, dominating, market oriented,  land stealing, earth raping paradigms, which makes us quite a bit different;)

            “We want one
            class of persons to have a liberal education, and we want another
            class of persons, a very much larger class, of necessity, in every
            society, to forgo the privileges of a liberal education and fit
            themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks.”

            Woodrow Wilson 1909

            It’s true he was a democrat, but I doubt what passed as Democrat back then, will pass as today. I’d like to also point out that the L/R paradigm mostly serves to further separate the masses.

            Which served the industrialists such as Andrew Carnegie and John D.Rockefeller Who had much to gain from a dumbed down, obedient, working class. and likely serves the 1% even more today.

            Essentially, you are barking up the wrong tree.

      Could it be that there was a major disaster wiping out a large portion of the population and the clock was restarted at zero again?

      A lot of ancient civilizations like the Maya and Egypt say there are cycles of disasters that wipe out most of humanity, forcing us to start over again.

    Considering how many times in the past that knowledge has been lost in history, and it wouldn’t surprise me that something like this may have happened. Especially since the last ice age ended about ten thousand years ago, it would make sense that a lot of meteors falling when there’s a lot of ice could cause a lot of flooding.

    It also reminds me of what a small-time organic farmer had told me once: “It doesn’t surprise me that modern man hasn’t found any signs of advanced technology in the past. All the technical and man-made materials have short shelf lives; it’s the rocks and ceramics that last forever.”

    I bet orthodox academics wish Gobekli Tepe would just blowup and go away.

    Meteors are far less likely to have wiped out Gobekli Tepe than Genocide is, seeing as how its been discovered the site was intentionally buried not “Lost”.

    The disgusting, obscene language completely ruins the entire video! There seem to be as many cuss words as non-cuss words – a sign of gross intellectual inferiority and itsy, bitsy, teeny weeny vocabulary.

    Do some reading on actual current discoveries and you’ll find 12,500 year old pottery with designs on them….not the work of primative,,club bearing cavemen
