Incredible sculpture, giant statues, ornate pillars, elaborate architecture.
Previously we were told that our ancestors were barely down out of the trees going "eek-eek" like monkeys and throwing their own feces at one another while foraging for grub larvae in rotting trees during this period.
Rather than being an early settlement I would be the first to suggest this is prime evidence that Gobekli-Tebe was a mere outpost of a worldwide oceanic empire that had existed for a long, long time. All the different animals in the carvings, are any of these even native to this area? They seemed to know about all kinds of different flora and fauna far outside this region. There is also a clearly established rank and file with different head gear and clothing for different orders of the society. These guys were not mammoth hunting last year and then decided to switch careers mid-life and become stone mason monolithic builders the next year. No way. If you read the preface that's the exact absurd story these scienmagistic types are trying to front-load so their existing chronology is not disrupted. Sometimes you have to wonder where their priorities lie, in discovery or concealment of information. Science seeks to discover, hierarchies seek to conceal.
If you look at many Neolithic structures and ruins in Europe, those are obviously pretty crude efforts by people who did not specialize in masonry or stone work. Heaps of big rocks and stone huts, these guys could have been mammoth hunting one year, building some religious centres the next. Gobekli-Tebe is a whole world away and completely different from any of those settlements in Europe. This looks like a society with an extensive division of labor and countless centuries of people who made a nice living getting paid to carve stuff and build things.
