The question may sound strange but Bruce Fenton may have found a connection between the mysterious site of Göbekli Tepe and the Australian Aborigines.
Published in New Dawn magazine, a new theory by Bruce Fenton hypothesizes that Göbekli Tepe carvings display a characteristically Aboriginal shamanistic attempt to stop the coming cataclysm.
He said, “The purpose of the complex was to reverse the flooding underway during the Younger Dryas, by placating the Rainbow Serpent (they assumed this water deity was responsible).”
The Younger Dryas was a period (from about 14,500 to 11,500 years ago) that the world experienced dramatic climate shifts.
Fenton wrote: “The images at Göbekli Tepe are mostly animals; it is tempting to think that this represented a significant effort by the shamans to call forth the spirits of the animals, many of which had become extinct.”
“Many of the animal symbols on the stones relate to Aboriginal clan totems,” Fenton said. He has also noticed similarities between the only female figure depicted at Göbekli Tepe and the Aboriginal depictions of Yingarna, the creator.
But maybe even more impressive is that Fenton has identified a symbol usually reserved for the most sacred artifacts of the Australian Aboriginal culture, churinga stones.
He has also found what he believes are churinga stones at other 12,000-year-old sites in Turkey thought to be connected to the Göbekli Tepe culture. They display the concentric circles characteristically used by Aboriginals to depict watering holes, and the zig-zag lines used to depict water ways.
Fenton also find out the symbol on a pillar at Göbekli Tepe is the same symbol painted on an Australian Aboriginal elder’s chest. This symbol is held by the Aborigines to depict two people sitting to share knowledge. How could this be? You know what we think… 🙂
