The World’s First Temple “Göbekli Tepe” Turkey’s 12,000-year-old stone circles were the spiritual center of a nomadic people.

Around 12,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent, which includes Turkey, expressed ideas that mirror even, if only in a small part, most of today’s modern religious or spiritual myths. Religions as we think of them today, if true, would have come as full packaged things and not things more akin to playing with Legos and their ability to add and remove pieces. Religions today with their several long hidden patterns of group superstitions are developed creations. Thus, current religious thinking holds little more credibility than superstitions of our ancestors, you know the ones we think are laughable.
