How's this possible...?
Despite the fact that we've studied our ancestors, their cultures,
their origin, and their way of life, we have failed to answer many
questions related to our past.
The countless monuments scattered across the globe are an ancient
message left behind by our ancestors, a message which despite
extensive studies, we have yet failed to decipher.
One of the most mysterious ancient temples on Earth is located in
modern-day Turkey, more precisely, the city of Urfa.
There, we find an ancient temple complex which is believed to have
been erected around 9,600 BC.
Göbekli Tepe is considered among many experts as the oldest temple
on Earth, and despite its importance, we know very little about it.
Not only is this ancient temple complex important because of its
age, but it's also of great importance because by who it was built,
and perhaps, even more interestingly, by the symbology it offers.
Notice the curious position of the hands.

Statues from Tiahuanaco in Bolivia, and archaeological sites in
Mexico, as well as Mesopotamia, feature the very same symbolism:
massive stone statues and hands coming together.

these ancient cultures shared a common designer...?
