In Reply to: ARE YOU ALL REALLY GREEK!!!!!???????? posted by Gunter Steiner on April 26, 2001 at 11:09:39:

: I read a book many years ago written by a German Anthropologist who claimed that there was VERY LITTLE CONNECTION IF ANY between the ancient greeks (who enlightened the world with their culture) and the countries modern day inhabitants who he claimed were a mixture of halfbred turks and slavs but mosltly turkish.He also highlighted earlier periods of history with the destruction of cities like Sparta and Athens which were destroyed,its male inhabitants killed and women sold into slavery and the cities reinhabited by Roman citizens from surrounding areas.I dont personally now how true or Factual his study really was as i have never seen or heard of anything similiar in any anthropological journal but modern day greeks look identical to their Turkish-Arabibic Cousins therefore if the proof is in the pudding he must have been right.Does anyone remember this Anthropologists name and if so what are your thoughts on his theory?????
reply to gunter steiner.
A)regarding the writer gunter steiner. obviously the text of mr. steiner is insulting to any modern greek. when someone like mr. steiner insults a whole nation, he is either stupid or mean. stupid because he might not realize that hes offending any modern greek, or mean because he realizes that his text is insulting but he writes it anyway. stupidity is not our issue here so I wont continue to analyze it. meaness is our issue here. If we read his text carefully well see that his attack to modern greeks is not direct but hidden. people that dont have the guts to attack directly have fear. I would advise him to stop reading books for a while, and visit a psychologist.
B) A nation( very famous and very old on this planet) has a paragraph in its manifest. This is "if you cant destroy greeks, at least imitate them".
