Amazing discovery. Might have to rewrite history.

History in the Remaking
A temple complex in Turkey that predates even the pyramids is rewriting the story of human evolution.


"The site is such an outlier that an American archeologist who stumbled on it in the 1960s simply walked away, unable to interpret what he saw. On a hunch, Schmidt followed the American's notes to the hilltop 15 years ago, a day he still recalls with a huge grin. He saw carved flint everywhere, and recognized a Neolithic quarry on an adjacent hill, with unfinished slabs of limestone hinting at some monument buried nearby. "In one minute—in one second—it was clear," the bearded, sun-browned archeologist recalls. He too considered walking away, he says, knowing that if he stayed, he would have to spend the rest of his life digging on the hill."

... Well. Let's hope the things are actually ~real~. Maybe they'll find out more while I'm still alive www

It would certainly be incredible if it doesn't turn out to be some huge mistake.

Indeed. Well, we'll see about that.
It's already been there, they just have to make SENSE out of the whole thing, I guess x'D

What exactly is it they've found that has to do with evolution? As someone who doesn't believe in it the article is a little tl;dr, I want to cut to the chase XD

As I don't really get what you're saying there, I guess you'll have to take it out to msn after all, to explain... >.>
