According to scientists, intricate stone carvings found at Göbekli Tepe—the oldest temple on Earth—are evidence that a come impacted Earth around 11,000BC, a cataclysmic event that wiped out wooly mammoths, giving rise to civilizations. Curiously, Graham Hancock presented this idea in his book Magicians of the Gods before experts even decided to see if there was a connection between the symbols and constellations in the sky.
For decades scientists have speculated that the impact of a comet could have caused the sudden drop in temperature during the period known as the younger Dryas—a crucial period in mankind’s history believed to coincide with the beginnings of agriculture and the first Neolithic civilizations.
In the past, analysis of meteor craters in North America where the comet is believed to have struck seemed to discredit that theory, but new evidence points otherwise.
In an investigation by experts at the University of Edinburgh, which analyzed mysterious symbols carved from stone pillars in Göbekli Tepe in southern Turkey, scientists discovered the depiction of a devastating impact that marked history, changing our world like never before.
Scientists analyzed the intricate stone carvings at Göbekli Tepe and asked whether the symbols carved onto the massive stone pillars are related to constellations.
Experts studied animal carvings made on one particular pillar known as the vulture stone and found that the animals are in fact astronomical symbols. With the help of sophisticated computer software, scientists matched the symbols to patterns in the sky, finding that they related to an event that occurred around 10,950 BC.
As scientists explain, the symbols carved on the stone pillars relate to a cosmic event which is believed to have been the break-up of a massive comet from the inner solar system, precisely during the period known as the Younger Dryas. This period is considered as a crucial stage for humanity since it coincides with the appearance of agriculture and the first Neolithic civilizations reports The Telegraph.
Interestingly, way before scientists even decided to take a look whether the animals carved at the stone pillars of Göbekli Tepe were related in any way to constellations in the sky, Graham Hancock presented this idea in his book Magicians of the Gods.
