But actually Turkey is well ahead of China in those fields.

Indeed, killing of millions of Armenians in the early 20th century and in present days the attempt to eliminate the Kurdish population.

Yes, agreed, the Turks are far ahead.

indeed, those are also obstacles, some others are the Greek/Turkish relations and Cyprus.

Cyprus is indeed an obstacle. Funny is that both nations are NATO members but are hostile towards each other.

Iceman left descendant destitute...

This bit of humour may be beyond most of you.

Wasn't it Prof Brian Sykes'  "Seven Daughters of Eve" which printed the humorous story about how the Irish Times reported that the "Iceman" left his relative destitute?

Prof. Sykes' team tested the DNA of the "Iceman" and found it to be the same as that of an Irish lass working in Bournemouth, Dorset who donated a few strands of her "long red hair" for research purposes. That means the ancestors of the Irish lass and the Iceman must be from the same "clan mother".

...
The reporter had asked Marie if she had been left anything by her celebrated predecessor. Shockingly, she revealed that she had not; so the story appeared as "Iceman leaves one of our own destitute in Bournemouth".
...


Alas, poor Yorick...

The Greeks have been around for at least 6'500 years.

And Stonehenge has been carbon-dated at over 5'000 years of age.

But why give Buddy a cursory introduction to European history? This guy lives next to the British Museum and certainly none too far from Stonehenge. It seems he prefers deriving his superficial knowledge from obscure and highly esoteric text books rather than from historic sites.


The Greeks were taught by the Indians, fool!
Most ancient Greeks made references to how advance Asian civilization was compared to theirs.
For proof, look up the video documemntary on The History on India done by the western BBC, village boy.
There you will also learn how recent your piddly Stonehenge is compared to thriving Asian civilizations at that time.

Keep up to date,, fool.
So don't say that I don't teach you anything, poor foolish "English" teacher!

Don't upset yourself...

Professor Brian Sykes isn't credited with the identifying of OETZI in the Alps; I don't see any connection between that and your "joke".



Don't upset yourself too much, it's okay if you don't see the connections in anything.

Have a cerapax with herbal tea, a good lie-down and then go talk with emu, the world will look less confusing to you then...
