Gobekli Tepe

I've been reading a bit about this archaeological site this week. AMAZING! Talk about History's Mysteries! Is it the site of "The Garden of Eden"? Does it prove that organized religion drove Neolithic Man into an Agrarian lifestyle, and not the other way around as has been previously suggested?

At any rate it is one of the oldest (if not THE oldest) man-made sites ever discovered. More time exists between this place's creation and the Sumerian Clay Tablets (world's oldest written word) than between the Clay Tablets and NOW. Mind Boggling. Awe Inspiring! I must add Gobekli Tepe to the list of places I want to see before I die, somewhere after Chichen Itza and the Parthenon.
