While many Western texts still refer to Sumer as being "the oldest civilization with writing," Ukraine has something far older. [Hail the Goddess Inanna.]

This was the cradle of civilization -- at 22,000 BCE -- and Kamyana Mohyla was its most significant sanctuary. This is a very special place. It is the oldest known sanctuary-observatory in the world.
Aratta is now recognized as having been the world's most ancient known civilization. It developed on the steppes north of the Black Sea, in modern Ukraine, long before the Sumerian civilization originated, and from there it radiated its culture into India, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Western China, Ireland, and across Europe. More relics of Aratta are increasingly being found and identified in Ukraine.

There's a saying: "If you're one step ahead, you're a genius. If you're two steps ahead, you're a lunatic." That would explain in large part why Wisdom Quarterly is willing to talk about such outlandish things long before the gatekeepers, media, and dictators of our "consensus reality" catch up. We must get to the truth however unexpected it is or how ever much it violates our preconceived notions.
It's not so surprising if the Buddha were from North Asia. Dr. Ranajit Pal says the Buddha was born in Bamiyan, Afghanistan (one of the three seasonal capitals of people the Ancient Greeks would later call the Scythians/Shakyians, the other two being Kapil/Kabul or Kapilavastu and, we surmise, the incredible Mes Aynak). Ukraine is just above that and the formerly Buddhist "stans" of Central Asia, which later formed the USSR/Russian Empire:
- Buddha, Jesus, Egyptians were Ukrainians (Pravda)
