    Göbekli Tepe is a fascinating mystery, but I think that Klaus Schmidt is assuming too much in what Newsweek quoted (misquoted?). Religion probably played a major role in whatever was going on at/around Göbekli Tepe, but his whole argument is based on assumptions about the carvings, the implausible lack of local settlements, and the motives/worldview of neolithic people whose society is much less well understood than nearly any other known human society.
