Mother goddesses are basic good however some did require young virgins to be killed in their behalf.

I have never been convinced of the soundness of the theory behind archaeologists' interpretation of "mother goddess" figurines found around the world. We make plenty of similar figurines ourselves and for entirely different purposes. If someone digs them up in 10-20,000 years they may make up as much bizarre nonsense as our archaeologists do.

In late August 2012 our SF Fandom Historian wrote an article about how the idea of Gobekli Tepe being an ancient temple has now been credibly challenged on the basis of new evidence.

Archaeologists have basically humiliated themselves by lumping every undecipherable structure and carving into the "it was a religious thing" category. We have a lot of work ahead of us, unteaching 150 years of nonsense interpretation that have been coupled with otherwise sound scientific growth.
