Tomb of the Eagles

Yesterday we read about the Archaeological site, Gobekli Tepe.

You probably recall seeing a picture of a hand holding a small stone with a precision drilled hole. 

This was obviously not an ordinary hole.  It was a hole that surely required some type of highly advance drilling tool.

The appearance of the precision hole indicates that it was not made by someone rotating a stick (like Boy Scouts use to start fires in an emergency) for months and years but by someone using a very sharp cutting tool, perhaps unlike what we have even today.

Why do I bring this up? you ask.

Well, several years ago a group of us went to The Tomb of the Eagles (in the Orkneys) and saw a stone (the albertite 'button’) with a precision drilled hole that was very reminiscent of the stone in yesterday’s DIT (Daily Interesting Thing).

Now the question is, “Why does a stone in Armenia (Turkey today) and a stone in the Orkneys of Scotland look like the same type of tool had drilled them both?” Even the rock in which the hole was drilled seems to be the same or very similar. And what was the purpose of the drilling of the hole?


Well, we could go on and on with the questions and the discoveries.

But, the point (pun intended) remains, it seems that folks many thousands of years ago (The Tomb of the Eagles is thought to be about 5000 years old) were much more highly advanced than we give them credit for.

Yes, many likely were ‘hunter-gatherers’ but, instead of being hunter gatherers of the evolutionary process of man’s ‘development’, ---

Consider the possibility that they were ‘hunter-gatherers’ because, having been dispersed around the world at the time of the Tower of Babel event, they had much knowledge but no longer had access to the machinery, tools (except small tools), and etc available in their pre-Babel Dispersion life.

Hmmmm. What a concept. Could it be that the Biblical accounts re. the age of the earth and all the events that happened (pre-flood world, Noah’s flood, Tower of Babel dispersion, etc) are all true!

Well, YES.

So, with that concept in mind and your ‘young earth’ glasses in place, look at the stone with the precision drilled hole as well as the other artifacts at the Tomb of the Eagles.  HERE’S THE LINK
