Explains how ice age events eradicated the civilization of the time and set humanity back thousands of years, only to reemerge around 3500 BCE with scattered memories and nascent abilities. Explores within this framework, how many megalithic monuments, underground cities, and ancient legends fall logically into place, as well as the reinterpreted Easter Island rongorongo texts and the intentional burial, 10,000 years ago, of the Göbekli Tepe complex in Turkey. Schoch reveals scientific evidence that shows how history could repeat itself with a coronal mass ejection powerful enough to devastate modern society.
Dr. Robert Schoch turns his attention to the paradigm-busting site of Gobekli Tepe, a sophisticated megalithic complex unearthed in southeast Turkey, which dates back more than 10,000 years ago. Nobody knows who built it, but its age and existence irrefutably points to the presence of a highly sophisticated yet unknown culture who obviously possessed a great deal of technological knowledge and social organization at a time when most archeologists believed the human race was little more than nomadic cave men, capable of nothing more interesting than eking out a primitive, subsistence mode of survival through hunting and foraging. The discovery of Gobleki Tepe has turned the world of ancient civilizations and human history on its head, forcing what will eventually amount to a complete rewriting of human history.
