Star Systems of the Gods? Are Ancient Petroglyphs in Surface Stones in South Africa Talking about the Night Sky or about the Microscopically Small?

By Jock Doubleday

Do ancient petroglyphs discovered in November 2015 in Waterval Boven, South Africa depict stellar constellations?

What do the channels between circles represent? Are these rock carvings meant to depict molecular configurations?

These ancient petroglyphs, discovered by Jock Doubleday on November 12, 2015 in Waterval Boven, South Africa, have the feeling of a map.

Do these carvings depict star relationships in the night sky? Do they depict structures so small that we have only recently been able to begin to see some of them with the help of the Atomic Force Microscope?
