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

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."

Theory is gray, but the golden tree of life is green. -- Goethe
