Because it's Awesome

The Smithsonian Magazine reports on the discovery of megaliths in Turkey that predate Stonehedge by some 6,000 years.

6,000 years.

That makes them 11,000 years old.

It means that they were built by people who hadn't even invented pottery yet.

Archeologists think it is the oldest temple ever found.
