In another article, an overhead view of the temple it reminded me a little of Stonehenge- but fancier.

That's really interesting. I've been reading and hearing a lot lately about very ancient religions/temples. There are some really interesting discoveries going on at the Isle of Skye, too, though later than this find.

all ancient sites seem to be aligned with some star systems, mostly Orion, Sirius (e.g. also the Gizeh plateau or Nabta Playa in Egypt)

here's more on Gobleki Tepe, a doc which I saw recently:

I will sing about the mother of all,
the well-founded and eldest who feeds all creatures as many as they are,
all that move on the trusty land,
and all in the sea,
and all that fly,
all these are fed from her wealth.
Hail, Mother of the gods, wife of starry Heaven.
- Gaia


Hail, and Amen
