Yet another wonderful Freudian slip .E.P. Grondine wrote: ESPECIALLY NOT THE HOLED STONE'S LOCATION AT GOBLEKI TEPE.
Why did you ignore the problems with holed stones when repeating the incredibly unlikely Collins claim for the holed stone . Did you never wonder why there is no pic of the “alignment “ ? or did you simply accept the reproduction without question because it suited your agenda ?
There are various holed stones at GT most of them are quite low down on the pillars but the recent find has been claimed to have been a sighting hole for the putative “alignment” but the description and subsequent image give a false impression , the picture of the holed stone between the pillars is not how it was found , it’s merely a wishful thinking reproduction . Look at the holed stone in enclosure C , i.e. in it’s actual; position , not a “reconstruction “ you would have to lie down to see through it and you still wouldn’t see the horizon , it was not used for “sighting “ anything .
Not only does the reproduction site a holed stone where there was no evidence for one having been it provides an impression of a view to the north that may not exist , as we don’t know the extent of the dept of the debris at the top of tell which currently blocks the view .The open aspect of the site , roughly to the south is a given and if you want to suggest an alignment, then that is far more likely , if still contentious , to be in that direction The northern direction ,where the sun is never seen to rise or set is eschewed in the vast majority of alignments in all cultures .
