[A comment on the Smithsonian magazine website about the Gobekli Tepe archeological find documented on the site, which is thought to be the world's oldest known temple, estimated 11,000 years old.]
"Seems to me like the Bible is correct after all. If Noah's ark landed in the Mountains of Turkey and Russia, then Noah would have built a temple for him and his family to offer sacrifices to God"

It says nothing about "sacrifices to God" on the building permit.

"If Noah's ark landed in the Mountains of Turkey and Russia"
What's the matter, Joseph, your faith wavering there?

Well, I don't know about you guys but, if I'd just spent over a month on a barge stuffed full of animals and only one window in an age with no concept of sanitation, medicine or food preservation, I'd certainly be bursting with energy to build a temple.
Oh, wait, no I wouldn't - I'd most likely be malnourished, ill, exhausted, feeling like shit and probably covered with it. I also wouldn't waste my time building a pointless religious structure when my people would need food and shelter, and all the farmland on the surface of the earth had just been destroyed by floods.
