Below, each section of the book has been broken up to make things easier to manage, but only certain documents will be available for now.  The rest will be rolled out through 2019-2020, whether public or password-protected.  AVG012 - Pillar 33 contains special evidence, available now for academics to argue over and yell at me about.  Just remember, it's supposed to be a genealogy report for everyone!

To be clear, Part One has speculation about other sites up to the end of the ice age, but there's little to no speculation in Part Two.  Göbekli Tepe is what it is.  Part Three explores the supernova after agriculture and domestication took root, right up to the invention of the telescope, which ended a way of thinking about the sky that could, just maybe, have been held by the majority of humans for over a hundred thousand years.

 

Part One - On The Potential for a Common Root Religion

  • AVG001: Introduction, and a look at some key capabilities of early humans.
  • AVG002: Persistence hunting compared to lunar tracking, plus the human tendency to link things together, like the moon to tides, water and shells, leading to gratitude, perhaps, with the moon being a major helper while South Africa was a desert during the last ice age, over a hundred thousand years ago.  And one interpretation of the Blombos Cave ochre etching, dated around 70,000 BCE.
  • AVG003, AVG004, AVG005: Race for the Danube. The evolution of social sky watching in Europe and some new interpretations of famous ice age art, partly inspired by new findings from Göbekli Tepe.
  • AVG006, AVG007: Coming out of the ice age (Kebaran/Natufian/Epigravettian), and the evolution of mobile art.  Two pebbles are considered as possible pocket almanacs.

Part Two - Göbekli Tepe

  • AVG008, AVG009:  Pillar 43 as being like the welcome sign at a big theme park.  Alpha and omega for one particular serpent.
  • AVG010, AVG011, AVG012, AVG013:  Full tour of every pillar in Enclosure D, and the incredible evidence on Pillar 33 that makes this entire book plausible.

  • AVG015:  Highlights from the remaining enclosures, and special snakes.
