+ - 11,000 year old temple found in SE Turkey->

Submitted by

Ralph Spoilsport writes "In Southeast Turkey, the archeologistKlaus Schmidt has discovered an 11,000 year old temple. Normal civilisation theory suggests that agriculture created cities, and cities created monuments. This discovery suggests just the opposite — people got together to build a huge monument to their religion, and in order to sustain it, communities were formed and agriculture (already in development) quickly followed on to sustain the population. Truly a startling find with significant implications."
