Friends,

This story is great news for UB lovers. A site with sophisticated building techniques and amazing rock carvings has been excavated in Turkey. The site is at least 12,000 years old, much older than any previously discovered site that shows this kind of advanced building techniques. This places the birth of civilization timeline much closer to the UB's account.

A link to a good article;

peace,

This is cool Bill!

A book (which I have not read yet) called the Cygnus Mystery also discusses this archaeological site.

Hi William,

Good find for us. But I would want to question your definition of civilization I guess. You say this story is dating back 12,000 years and more closely matches the UB account.

The Planetary Prince's regime had ten advisory and teaching councils

1) Council on food and material welfare
2) Board of animal domestication and utilization
3) Advisers regarding the conquest of predatory animals
4) Faculty on dissemination and conservation of knowledge
5) Commission on industry and trade
6) College of revealed religion
7) Guardians of health and life
8 Planetary council on art and science
9) Governors of advanced tribal relations
10) Supreme court of tribal co-ordination and racial co-operation

This was 250,000 years ago.

So should we ask to define, "when did civilization begin?"

Thanks,

Vann

Vann,

I don't think that we will find anything in the ground that links back to the beginning of civilization. This village in Turkey pushes the timeline back on advanced building techniques; that is structures that had foundations. This is all we're ever going to find at these ancient sites. Hopefully they will find more, and continue to push back the history of civilization to the true time when it began.

Peace,

Bill

Hey Bill,

Thanks for responding. I wasn't questioning that part. I was questioning your statement: "This places the birth of civilization timeline much closer to the UB's account."


Peace
