Skip to comments.Huge Geometric Shapes in Middle East May Be Prehistoric
Posted on 12/02/2015 2:52:48 PM PST by BenLurkin
Thousands of stone structures that form geometric patterns in the Middle East are coming into clearer view, with archaeologists finding two wheel-shaped patterns date back some 8,500 years. That makes these "wheels" older than the famous geoglyphs in Peru called Nazca Lines.
Those are just some of the findings of new research on these Middle East lines, which were first encountered by pilots during World War I. RAF Flight Lt. Percy Maitland published an account of them in 1927 in the journal Antiquity, reporting that the Bedouin called the structures "works of the old men," a name still sometimes used by modern-day researchers.
The "works of the old men" include wheels, which often have spokes radiating out from the center, kites (stone structures used for funnelling and killing animals), pendants (lines of stone cairns) and meandering walls, which are mysterious structures that meander across the landscape for up to several hundred feet.

I saw these on the science channel today.
Paths made by Jews wandering in the wilderness for 40 years.
We have those too.
Well, if they aren’t wouldn’t we have a history of them?
and some people don’t believe in aliens.
WWMD, What Would Mohammed Do? Destroy them as relics of an ancient religion.
Certainly not done by the moose limbs - they’re too busy murdering Jews.
The bulls eye reminds me of the old conspiracy classic movie—”Hanger 18”. (spoiler alert....)
The punch line was “Designated Landing Area” :-)
Awsome, something new for ISIS to try and destroy!
Looking at the pictures, it’s hard to imagine aliens who probably had the ability to travel here in some sort of sophisticated craft would ‘draw’ something that looks like it was done by a 3 year old human.
Of interest ping. Fascinating article.
Thanks, looks like preceramic settlements, each one holding a single (extended) family and their animals. :’)
