    There is a book entitled ''Forbidden Archeology '' floating around out there but I found it nearly unreadable-searched forever for it and could make NO sense of the subject matter.KR , you might want to give it a rip.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    I have heard of it. It can't be any harder to read then anything Sitchin has wrote can it?

    There was a pretty cool video after this one played worth checking out too:

    I wouldnt consider 14,000 years old pre-Biblical but maybe to some it would be.

    The oldest I have ever heard the Bible being estimated at is that Moses wrote some of the Torah in the 15th Century BC. Now perhaps the stories of the Flood go back farther. (The pyramids are estimated to be built about 2500 BC though I personally think that those dates are way off.) Abraham was 500 years before that, then the flood, a 1000 years before that & then the garden of eden a few thousand before that so I would put the earliest Biblical stories at about 5000 BC. Gobekli Tepe goes back another 5000 before that. So I would call them pre-Biblical.

    Its tough to gauge the age of the Garden of Eden because we don't know how long they lived without sin. As far as I know there are no references to Adam or Eve's age so they could have lived many times longer than Methuselah before the original sin.

    Definitely an interesting topic and some really cool finds.

    Job is the oldest book of the bible.. But I would say that technically since the bible tells a history that starts at the beginning of the planet, nothing could predate the history of the bible. It could out date the age of a physical written bible.
