The recent sensational discoveries by a team from the German Archaeological Institute [the first findings were made in 1994 and are still ongoing], led by field director Dr. Klaus Schmidt and Harald Hauptmann -- at Göbekli Tepe [lit. navel Mountain, highly probable that this is the primordial name of the place, and navel is associated with the Navel of the Earth [Port in Armenian, connected with port[al] in Greek Omphalos, the Delphi [oracle] in antiquity was called the Navel of the Earth. Generally, the omphalos, or navel-boss, was the emblem of the AYA -- The Mother Goddess. Our ancient ancestors considered a woman’s navel the seat of her sexual passion, throughout Siwnik there are still remnants of phallic/mountain shaped portak‛arer literary navel stones that according to ancient traditions would be visited by barren women who would genuflect on the sacred stones in the hope of divine impregnation -- so we return to the name of Navel [feminine] Mountain [masculine]..., 15 km northeast of the city of Sanliurfa, near historic Urfa or Urha [Edessa], the point o origin of the Armenian Solar cult of Orion that later spread to other parts of the globe, has been a truly revolutionary archaeological discovery. The cult site consists of circular stone formations that look similar to those in Stonehenge, only that Stonehenge is about 6,000 years younger.
