Ancient stone carvings confirm that a comet struck the Earth around 11,000BC, a devastating event which wiped out wooly mammoths and sparked the rise of civilizations.
Experts at the University of Edinburgh analyzed mysterious symbols carved onto stone pillars at Gobekli Tepe in southern Turkey, to find out if they could be linked to constellations.
The markings suggest that a swarm of comet fragments hit Earth at the exact same time that a mini-ice age struck, changing the entire course of human history.
Scientists have speculated for decades that a comet could be behind the sudden fall in temperature during a period known as the Younger Dryas. But recently the theory appeared to have been debunked by new dating of meteor craters in North America where the comet is thought to have struck.
However, when engineers studied animal carvings made on a pillar – known as the vulture stone – at Gobekli Tepe they discovered that the creatures were actually astronomical symbols which represented constellations and the comet.
The idea had been originally put forward by author Graham Hancock in his book Magicians of the Gods.
Using a computer programme to show where the constellations would have appeared above Turkey thousands of years ago, they were able to pinpoint the comet strike to 10,950BC, the exact time the Younger Dryas begins according to ice core data from Greenland.
The Younger Dryas is viewed as a crucial period for humanity, as it roughly coincides with the emergence of agriculture and the first Neolithic civilisations.
Before the strike, vast areas of wild wheat and barley had allowed nomadic hunters in the Middle East to establish permanent base camps. But the difficult climate conditions following the impact forced communities to come together and work out new ways of maintaining the crops, through watering and selective breeding. Thus farming began, allowing the rise of the first towns.
Edinburgh researchers said the carvings appear to have remained important to the people of Gobekli Tepe for millennia, suggesting that the event and cold climate that followed likely had a very serious impact.

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.
Linda Moulton Howe saw dozens of 19-foot-tall, elegantly carved limestone pillars erected in a series of circles covering 30 acres of a hill called “Gobekli Tepe” a few miles from the northern Syrian border. Carbon dating places the age of the finely honed pillars at 10,000 B. C., or 12,000 years ago. Beginning in 1994, German archaeologist Klaus Schmidt, Ph.D., from the University of Heidelberg and the German Archaeological Institute, began slowly and carefully excavating the large hilltop site that is more than twice the age of Egypt, Sumeria and Stonehenge. Compounding the mystery is the soil compression test revelation that about a thousand years after it’s creation, all of the Gobekli standing pillars in circles were buried entirely with soil. The immense effort required to erect the many sophisticated large stone circles 12,000 years ago and then bury them a thousand years later provokes speculation that Gobekli Tepe and stone circles such as Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia; worldwide pyramids; and ziggurats in the Middle East could be self-activating machines left behind by non-human intelligences that have terraformed Earth for millennia. Emmy Award-winning TV producer and investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe will present her firsthand research at Gobekli Tepe, along with scientific data about other stone enigmas.
Join Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt and his Emmy-award winning guest Coast to Coast AM Investigative Reporter Linda Moulton Howe for an explosive and exclusive Special Report on the shocking mysteries of ET Self Activating Technology and the Alien Connection to the Ancient Stone Circle Site Gobekli Tepe!
The mysterious Ancient Archaeological site called Gobekli Tepe, in Turkey has been dated to 10,000 B.C. which throws a wildly different light on human history and reveals signs of ET Interference on Earth. Are we Starseeds that advanced extraterrestrial beings placed here to evolve a higher spiritual vision of the universe?
Ancient Alien Technology
In this special episode Dark Journalist and Linda Moulton Howe explore her deep investigation and research visits to Gobekli Tepe to discover the strange ANCIENT ALIEN TECHNOLOGY it may represent and her shocking realizations that the patterns in Sacred Architecture, Crop Circles and Gobekli Tepe are all a part of ET Self Activating Software to raise the global consciousness of humanity!
Since the powerful ancient site of Gobekli Tepe was buried 12,000 years ago by a race forgotten to history, does the discovery of this ancient marvel in the 21st century signal that a massive paradigm shift is underway? Is humanity being activated to see a higher and deeper vision of reality that includes contact with star civilizations?
Is the cataclysm that destroyed this ancient civilization happening again and is the message of Gobekli Tepe a warning of survival to humanity that planet Earth is on the precipice of massive upheaval and destruction?
Recently I was privileged to watch a presentation by Graham Hancock, author of the newly released and certain best seller Magicians of the Gods: The Forgotten Wisdom of Earth’s Lost Civilization.
Graham Hancock is continuing the rogue archeological tradition of Chariots of the Gods by Erik von Daniken and more recently the Ancient Aliens series on the History Channel, but this very sober presentation has profound implications.
First it takes on conventional historical “fact” and turns it on its head by addressing the newly discovered astrophysical and geological findings that a cataclysmic extinction event – presumably a strike by a comet similar to what wiped out the dinosaurs – also happened between 11-12,000 years ago, with the date probably being narrowed down to around 11,800 years.
Hancock goes through the very credible conventional scientific proofs in superb detail with supporting photos.
He then lines up this timeline with accounts from Plato about the abrupt disappearance of Atlantis, and makes the startling determination that the two events coincided.
He suggests that Plato’s account of the sinking of Atlantis by a cataclysmic flood, as described in mythical accounts around the world, actually occurred as a result of this comet.
What happens next is amazing – he connects this event with the sudden appearance of immense and scientifically sophisticated megalithic structures around the world, most dramatically Gobekli Tepe in Turkey and of course the pyramids of Giza and Mexico – and the Sphinx.
More recently Indonesia has been the site of controversy over the halted excavation (by archeologists jealous of geologists) of another massive ancient pyramid at Gunung Padang which Hancock says can be dated for approximately the same time period–and certainly before recorded “history.”
His contention is that these megaliths were the attempts of the survivors of Atlantis to preserve their vast knowledge and he asks the most interesting question:
How is it that these megaliths appeared out of nowhere, suddenly, amid the hunter gatherer “primitive” humans of the time at the beginning of agrarian revolutions and the evolution of a technologically advanced culture, rather than at the end?
For example, in Egypt, if his findings are correct, the Sphinx and Great Pyramid preceded the great dynasties of Egyptian pharaohs, and subsequent structures were in fact less advanced. Their civilizations declined rather than advanced after the presumed appearance of the Atlanteans.
(This coincides with Gurdjieff’s suggestion that he had seen a map of pre-sand Egypt and that his teachings came from a “Lost Christianity.”)
In other words, the apex of these civilizations were at their origin — they did not evolve but rather declined.
