Neolithic Cathedral..... unearthed in Orkney Dig

Another amazing archaeological find has been unearthed in the Orkneys. This time it is a Neolithic Cathedral.

The article at the Times Online site says “The dig site at Ness of Brodgar has been described as potentially as important as Skara Brae. Worshippers would have been led through a passage to a chamber at the heart of the building”

Hmmmm. Interesting.

But, this article caught my attention for several reasons, not the least of which is that I have been to both the Ring / Circle of Brodgar and Skara Brae. What a great trip it was, another awesome family adventure and most memorable!

The ‘old earthers’ will ultimately place the building of these structures in the very distant past or else they will say that these structures were built by ‘primitive’ folks.

In reality, these were most likely erected by people traversing the earth looking for new places to settle after the Flood of Noah and after the Tower of Babel dispersion. Looking at these archaeological finds from that perspective makes these extremely interesting.

Oh, I would like to ‘wax eloquent’ on the topic. But, for the sake of space and time, will not and will just let you read the article, remembering that it is not written from the Biblical perspective.
