Were they just tree bark that resembled clothes and not clothes at all?

Or clothes made of tree bark?

The paper abstract says
https://doi.org/10.15184/aqy.2021.89
The use of local fibres for textiles at Neolithic Çatalhöyük

> Woven textiles from Çatalhöyük in southern Anatolia are among the earliest-known examples of weaving in the Near East and Europe.

Barkcloth is made by beating the inner bark into matted sheets and is not woven.

My question is if they could make cloth why didn't they clothe their goddess?

Goddess can do whatever the f*ck she wants.  And she clearly didn't feel like putting pants on that day.

I just love that we're accepting 8000 year old cities now and the fact that it goes much further back with Golbeki  Tempe. People may have to accept that the earth is a harsh place to live and yeah it maybe climate change  but hotter or new ice age lol.

Sorry for your  loss. I'm sure it was badly stated . I've sorta been  getting into the pliestocene and early holocein.  Go figure and don't  wanna touch on modern taboos, lol.

IMHO Mother Nature is the fiercest thing we face. One of these days they're going to find their dating methods are deeply flawed and 'facts' will be revisited. But weather is such a force, I think extreme climates have changed and shaped the planet more times than we'll ever know.

Yeah, a lot of that has the flavor of Young Earthers and their insistence that the Grand Canyon was created during Noah's flood.

I think I could pull off that look, if I do a little manscaping first.  And lose some weight.  And have gender reassignment surgery.  And a whole body skin graft from a recently deceased underwear model.

There were probably cities far before then but they would have been built with hide and sticks like a lot of native american cities were, so they never would have lasted long after they were abandoned

The only honest truth we can say about ancient times is that they were probably far more intelligent than we believe and that most of the things in textbooks now are just arrogant and ignorant assumptions made by stupid old white people from the middle ages
