What is Göbekli Tepe’s True Age?

Our History Has Been Corrupted

Fig 1: Göbekli Tepe is not a sanctuary, it is an ancient calendar. Its age spans a period of 250,000 years and was (re)built in several stages. More about how it worked and how it was used will be published in the future.

Many people who land on this website are interested in Göbekli Tepe or in some other ancient site that we have analyzed. They probably already questioned the mainstream stance about its history. Even here, we find too many ancient mysteries left unexplained.

Somewhere in our subconscious mind we already know that the official versions are incorrect. What then is the correct version?

If you carefully read the articles on this website, you already know a little about the true history of humanity and how it expanded over hundreds of thousands of years all over the globe. The official version of history (mankind’s age) has been compressed – it has been arbitrarily reduced to 1/50th from what it should be – and yet, it is said of Göbekli Tepe that it is one of the oldest temple complexes on Earth.

Our facts indicate that Göbekli Tepe is “just” one of the many ancient sites around the globe, which are very much older than you have ever thought possible.

Logos or Mythos?

If you prefer to label Göbekli Tepe with fancy words such as “early Neolithic sanctuary” to address the alleged age of Göbekli Tepe, you probably do not have much affection for mathematics and numbers. These descriptive labels are meaningless, suggesting merely that the user is an “expert” in his field.

These experts (Archaeologists) seem to be unable to enlarge their attempts to fit this site into the current academic world view. They do not seem to understand what they are dealing with. Because this website mostly deals with numbers and mathematics, it can explain our forgotten history much more accurately, and thus departs considerably from what you might have learned about history.

Fig 2: When it was found, Göbekli Tepe was covered with many feet of soil. Stratigraphy records of this region show that the soil builds up only 4 to 5 feet every 100,000 years. How old would Göbekli Tepe be then? What does this tell us about the modern dating techniques and the established ideas?

How Old is Göbekli Tepe in Reality?

Göbekli Tepe’s age spans over a period of 250,000 years. Some of our readers might refute this statement by saying “Oh, that’s impossible!” But is it? We have major indicators and mathematical truths leading to this inevitable conclusion. These indicators dwarf any other so-called “evidence” that “experts” have gathered at the local scene.

Archaeology will, of course, disagree with this conclusion. Archaeology is, because of its frozen paradigm, an irrational discipline, unable to deal with the facts as they really are. Archaeology, as is currently practiced by the established academia, has nothing to do with real science. It is little more than a belief system to keep the existing paradigm intact.

There is no Significant Difference in Ground Level Between Roman Buildings and New Buildings

Fig 3: This Roman temple in Croatia (on the left) is said to be about 2,000 years old, lies at the same ground level as the surrounding contemporary buildings (right and behind). Why is this building not positioned much deeper? Chronostratigraphy states about this region that the natural rate at which ground layers build up is very slow – only 0.1 feet (1.2″) per 2,000 years. That is why it is equal with the current ground level!
Fig 4: Another example of an ancient Roman temple in France. There is also no difference in levels between the temple and the contemporary surrounding buildings.

Roman Buildings Are at the Same Ground Level

When we look at the many buildings in ancient Rome, or at the many ancient Roman settlements around Europe, we see that the levels of ancient Roman buildings and contemporary buildings do not differ significantly or not at all. This raises the question: why was Göbekli Tepe covered by many feet of soil?

Some Archaeologists might argue that Göbekli Tepe had a ‘roof which collapsed’ to justify the thick layer of soil with which the site was covered. Other Archaeologists claim that Göbekli Tepe was intentionally buried before it was abandoned. These are typical arguments of academia who like to keep their belief systems intact rather than advance their science with real research to discover the truth.

All the bickering does not explain why Göbekli Tepe lies deeper than the surrounding area. Was the surrounding land also deliberately back-filled? These are arguments of people who are unwilling to think rationally. The only reasonable explanation is a very old age.

What is easily acknowledged is the possible argument that Göbekli Tepe is much older than Roman temples. Archaeologists claim that Göbekli Tepe is about 6 times older than Roman temples. To many people, large numbers are meaningless. One thousand years, or 12,000 years, let alone 250,000 years. It all exceeds the time frame of the mortal ego multiple times.

But if we follow the chronostratigraphy of that region, Göbekli Tepe would, if it is really 12,000 years old, be covered with only about 7 to 8 inches of soil. The site would still be in plain sight, ruined but possibly covered with some vegetation.

Fig 5: Why is this ancient arena in Arles at the same level as the rest of the city? Why did its immense weight not cause the colossal structure to sink many feet beneath the contemporary ground level? Because it is “only” 2,000 years old, and the difference in level is only 1 to 2 inches for the area.

How Deep Did They Have to Dig for Göbekli Tepe?

That is an important question to ask. As a rule, the deeper something lies, the older it is. The depth where a site can be found depends on the rate at which the ground layers are built up over time.

If the depth of a specific site (to be dug up) is about 15 feet below the current ground level, and none of the Roman temples ever had to be dug up, how old could it really be?

Chronostratigraphy gives some of the first indications of its true age.

What is Chronostratigraphy?

Chronostratigraphy is the study of the age of ground layers. It attempts to label an age to a certain ground layer. The rate at which ground layers build up varies somewhat, depending on the region.

The common rate at which ground layers build up in a typical region, such as Southeast Turkey where Göbekli Tepe is situated, is around 4 to 5 feet of dense soil per 100,000 years. Because Göbekli Tepe was covered with a layer of soil of between 10 to 15 feet thick gives an indication of its true age, which is approximately 220,000 years.

Are there other indicators that point to a similar age? Yes, there are. The structural orientations reveal a more differentiated and accurate age pattern.


Fig 6: This chronostratigraphy graph shows the rate at which soil layers build up in Southeast Europe (Italy) over a long period of time. It takes about 100,000 years to build up 4 to 5 feet (1.2 to 1.5 m) of densely compressed soil.

First Rough Indications of Göbekli Tepe’s True Age

The original ground level of Göbekli Tepe varies between 10 to 15 feet beneath the current ground level. All the sand, rocks, and soil that the Archaeologists had to dig away were deposited there in a natural way. That takes an enormous amount of time, between 200,000 to 375,000 years, depending on which part of the construction you are considering.

Archaeologists assert that Göbekli Tepe is roughly 12,000 years old. However, no facts are available that will support this claim other than associative and assumptive evidence gathered at the local scene.

In addition, Göbekli Tepe was never covered with any kind of a roof. Nor was it intentionally back-filled because, according to our calculations, the site is hundreds of thousands of years old. The alleged roof, which is believed to have collapsed, or the back-filled version, is invented by archaeologists because that much soil cannot build up in just 12,000 years. The surrounding area is also at a similar higher level, hence this debunks instantaneously the theory that Göbekli Tepe had a roof or was hand filled. Otherwise, the rest of Turkey had a roof as well! And it all collapsed!

Göbekli Tepe was a calendar which served to measure the time of the year. It was an open-air construction to measure the seasons, and every T-shaped construction was once oriented to another geographic pole. The proof is in the numbers.

Fig 7: Here is another example: There are still people who believe that the Mayan culture was not more than 2,500 years old. But the stratigraphy records show that the person standing at the bottom of the Mayan ruin (shown above) looks at soil records that are 650,000 years old. An academically conditioned mind is unconvinced.

The Big Bamboozle

Each separate construction of Göbekli Tepe belongs to a different time frame, which I will show further on. These time frames are many tens of thousands of years apart.

Archaeologists want you to believe that all of Göbekli Tepe was built during the same time period. This is incorrect and part of the current cover-up. The people who dominate the sciences have agendas that exclude anti-diluvial high-tech civilizations. Once you understand how the science community really works, you will understand how important it is for them to keep us ignorant. An example is the long-entrenched dogma of natural evolution from primitive to sophisticated. Generally unknown is in fact that we are descendants of highly-developed cultures that spanned the entire planet. We are also survivors of the last (almost) life-extinction-level event which ended 26,000 years ago.

Once we understand how the science community really works, we can understand how important these dogmas are. It imprisons us into the false narrative of natural evolution from primitive to sophisticated, while in fact, we are descendants of highly-developed cultures that once spanned the entire planet.

But these ancient species became subjected to genetic manipulations, became enslaved into a corrupt system where the few rules over the masses. That is where we are now today and we are starting to awaken very slowly. Dogmatic Science will try to prevent this at any cost, hence the big bamboozle regarding ancient history.

Göbekli Tepe’s Original Ground Level

Fig 8: This is how Göbekli Tepe might have looked at one time, according to this artist impression. Many feet of naturally deposited soil had to be removed. That is the first sign of an age of several hundreds of thousands of years.

The orientation of the Large T-shaped Pillars

Fig 9: This map shows how the major T-shaped stones are oriented. Because these orientations match 3 out of 4 with the already proven former geographic North poles, we can calculate the probability of these orientations to be coincidental.

The illustration shows how the four constructions are oriented. All four constructions are differently oriented and are negatively oriented in regard to our current geographic North pole.

Archaeologists do not seem to have paid attention to the negative orientation of these sites. The question why this site is not oriented to our current North pole has never been addressed. Where was the site oriented to? And why would these constructions be oriented so oddly and so differently to each other? Why are the large T-shaped pillars not oriented towards the solstices? Archaeologist do not know what to reply, except for wild guesses and irrational nonsense.

The answer is that the site of Göbekli Tepe was reoriented after every crustal displacement. Each crustal displacement resulted in another geographic pole position. This process extended over a period of more than 250,000 years

Because the crust (and also the geographic poles) had moved, Göbekli Tepe was reoriented in regard to the current geographic pole. How large are the odds for this statement to be actually true?

We have seen that the stratigraphy records are pointing to the oldest age (A) of between 350,000 and 375,000 years. Can we reinforce this age with other evidence or even proof? Yes, we can.

Note that the older a structure becomes (which you can derive from its orientation), the greater appears its counter-clockwise orientation. It is therefore older. At the same time, it is likely that little remains of the original structure. Patterns appear and seem to match other patterns. Let us look at further proof.

How the Large T-shaped Pillars Correlate to Ancient Geo Poles

Fig 10: Göbekli Tepe correlates with 3 former geo pole locations. The odds for this matching pattern to be coincidental is very small. Because the odds are so small we have very clear evidence for its true age and the reason why the site has been reoriented after major crustal displacements.
Göbekli Tepe Relates to: Probability for this correlation to be coincidental*: Age of the Pole (Kyrs)**:
Pole I 0 – 26
Pole II (C) 5.83% 130 – 155
Pole III (B) 7.44% 210 – 225
Pole IV 240 – 270
Pole V (A) 10.17% 335 – 345
Combined Probability 0.044% or 1 to 2,267

*Probability calculations are based on all poles. 

**Latest data November 2017, they may differ from earlier publications. The periods in between the stable pole positions are crustal displacements. Cultures flourished mainly during a stable crust which lasted between 10,000 years up to periods of 30,000 years. Note that periods of unrest are longer than periods of stability.

The Conclusions

The conclusions of this research are clear:

  • The stratigraphic records point to an age of between 350,000 to 375,000 years for the oldest, deepest constructions. This age correlates with the (re)orientation patterns of the site. This relation alone is very small to be just coincidental, which is not taken into consideration in the probability calculations.
  • The orientation patterns reveal more subtle ages between 350,000 and 100,000 years.
  • The certainty of the claim for Göbekli Tepe to be older than 100,000 years is 99.997%.
  • It is for 99.997% certain that Göbekli Tepe has been reoriented due to crustal displacements.
  • The part of Göbekli Tepe marked as “D” (fig. 8), that is oriented between Pole II and Pole I, has been built during the shifting crust and became obsolete after a few millennia.
  • We can pinpoint the age of “D” somewhere between 70,000 and 80,000 years.
  • None of the calendars are oriented to our current geographic North pole because the site was not restored as a calendar once more. This happened around 70,000 years ago after “D” became obsolete.
  • The older a structure, the less is left of it. A is the oldest, D is the youngest.

There is nothing in and around the site that is pointing to an age of only 12,000 years. This age is unsubstantiated by current academia and is based on unscientific methods.

If you have to dig for ruins many feet below the current ground level, your alarm bells should already go off. Check out the chronostratigraphy records of your region to get an indication of how the soil builds up over time.

If you have the opportunity to use ground-penetrating radar, work from rough to fine. Scan the contours of the structure and find out how it is oriented in relation to our current geographic pole. If it relates to one of the ancient poles (which you can find on this website) and you find a similar match in the stratigraphy records, you have already a 1 to 10,000 hit they match up coincidentally. You have found its most probable age without placing a single spade in the ground.

  1. The main conclusions are derived from orientation, and not from the fact that Göbekli Tepe had to excavated. If you reread the article you will come to the same conclusion. If it would have been hand filled like you suggest, the site would lie above ground level and be sticking like a pimple above the ground, which is not the case. The surrounding area is at similar levels as the top of the site, before excavations.

    It is all right to translate some parts of the website. I will have a look at your website. Thanks for exposing the material to a larger audience and also thanks for your contribution.

  2. All publications on Gobekli Tepe indicate that the site has been backfilled by the human hand. It is so that having found biological remains in the embankments they date the site of 10000 to 14000 years BP. This corresponds to the end of the last glaciation the younger dryas 12900 to 11700 BP.
    To obtain an Age of 350000 years you assume that there has been no backfilling by man and take into account the results given by the Chronostratigraphy.
    I believe that your theory on the alignment of ancient monuments on the geographical poles is very interesting and could explain all the enigmas of the origin of humanity. From the first civilized men through the meeting with the extraterrestrial peoples who visited us and were able to bring us knowledge to advance us or otherwise enslave us to their service. And it happens also these global catastrophes that have repeatedly erased civilizations or living beings on earth with some survivors, may be refugees on the moon or on March if their technology had allowed them to travel. You’re going to have a hard time getting your theorizer to admit if it were true, it would upset the whole current history and put down all the religions, all the fixed scientific beliefs, the governance of the people,
    People would realize that they have been betrayed and this could destabilize the established social order and lead to revolts or wars and a questioning of everything.
    Only about 5% of humanity is sufficiently educated and able to question official paradigms.
    Anyway, for two years I have been creating my site where I ask myself questions about the origin of humanity in parallel with the study of ancient civilizations. I discovered your theory which is exciting and deserves to be studied and followed.
    I request your permission to reference your page on my own site where I will translate some of your writings into French for those who can not read in English.
    Yours sincerely
