Missing Arms Photo
The reason we see ancient Greek sculptures with missing heads, arms and penises
is due to Christian hatred and need to destroy all that the Greek civilization
had to offer. Thou the ravages of time did some damage many of these beautiful statues may have been in pristine
condition after 2,500 years if it were not for the Christians.
Aghia Sophia (Holly Wisdom) in Constantinople has no external protruding
structural supports or buttresses yet it has been standing for 1700 years,
through countless earthquakes.
Architects of Aghia Sophia: "Anthemius of Tralles" and "Isidore of Miletus"
Aghia Sophia, once the center of the Greek Orthodox Religion, it is now a museum and no longer functions as a Christian Cathedral.
The Turkish government will not allow it. It would be great if
the Orthodox faith, one of the worlds great religions could again be
seated in Aghia Sophia. I propose that the Aghia Sophia get the same sovereignty
and protection afforded to the Vatican, even more so as it is in hostile
On a similar note, Greek religious sites, temples to
the Gods, amphitheaters and other monuments built in ancient times and now
occupied by Turkey should be offered international protection. The Turks
financially exploit these sites and do not even mention that they are Greek. I
suspect other cultures have similar problems with their big and powerful neighbors. These big
bullies should not be allowed to mutilate the cultural heritage of others.
By the way, the Renaissance, the rebirth of Greek
ideas and innovation was initiated Constantinople, renamed Istanbul by the Turks.
Prior to the Renaissance, Constantinople was the center of Greek learning. See

Non-Euclidian Geometry in Ancient
Interesting that the ancient Greeks had issues with the
parallel postulate. See:
The twenty million or more Kurds is the biggest nationality in
the world without their own country. Such a large nationality should be
supported by the big powers to gain independence and a homeland inside their
The True Modern Olympics
I propose that we commemorate the
1859, 1870, 1875 and 1889
Modern Olympics. These Olympics were held
in Greece prior to the Olympic revival in 1896 and should be recognized
as the Original Modern Olympics.

Have you noticed that all Greek statues have the toe next to the big toe longer
than the large toe? Also have you noticed that in Greek Orthodox icons the feet are set
at 90 degrees. Why? I do not know and for those with inquiring minds see *. No, I do not have a foot fetish!
At present my second toe is shorter than my big toe. This has changed several times during my
life as I willed it. I know it sounds odd that my second toe would do this but
Believe it or not! No, I do not have a foot fetish!
* In the process of trying to find a photo of a long
second toe I came upon a site that discusses this issue. Apparently podiatrist
Dudley J. Morton also noticed it:
do not have a foot fetish! Now a sock fetish? Well I won't say.
Revolutions of the Heavenly Bodies in 1543, he was reviving the discarded
heliocentric theory of the century BCE Greek thinker Aristarchus. In the highly
technical work Copernicus launched a head-on assault against Ptolemaic geo-centrism. The main issue between Copernican astronomy and the older worldview
was not one of mathematical precision, for both were mathematically solid and
thus equally able to predict planetary positions and solar and lunar eclipses.
Rather, the basic question between the two systems was which was simpler. Much
of the reason for the longevity of Ptolemy's geocentric calculations was the
they could be used to predict the motion of the planets.
Galileo described Copernicus as the "restorer and confirmer," not the
inventor of the heliocentric hypothesis. For most of the 1,800 years between
Aristarchus and Copernicus nobody knew the correct disposition of the planets,
even though it had been laid out perfectly clearly around 280 BCE. The idea
outraged some of Aristarchus contemporaries. There were cries, like those voiced
about Anaxagoras and Bruno and Galileo, that he be condemned for impiety. The
resistance to Aristarchus, a kind of geocentricism in everyday
life, remains with us: we still talk about the Sun "rising" and the Sun
"setting." It is 2,200 years since Aristarchus, and our language still pretends
that the earth does not turn.

The size of each atom is not tiny as we normally think that they are. Each atom
is actually the size of the universe. Its sphere
of influence fills the complete universe. Its influence radiates outward from
the atom having an effect on all phenomena including each every other of the
nearly countless other atoms in the universe. This influence distorted by all
the other atoms and phenomena then returns back to where it started.
To extrapolate since we are made of atoms we also the size
of the universe. Our brains are the size of the universe and we, all of us
occupy the same space at the same time. Only the tiny center of the atoms cannot occupy
the same space at the same time.
Founding Fathers Almost Vote to Speak Greek?
After the successful American Revolution, the founding fathers turned to
classical Greece, its sense of democracy and culture, upon which to erect the
foundations of the new Nation. This classical revival affected education,
painting, sculpture, theater, even women's fashions. Shortly after the American
Declaration of Independence, a motion was introduced in the Continental Congress
to adopt Greek as the national language. Many of the Founding Fathers
considered Greek to be the most fitting form of expression for the direct
successor in spirit to the Athenian Republic. The motion was defeated by one
vote. Benjamin Franklin, one of the dissenters, explained that
he considered it more practical for the Americans to keep English and let the
British learn Greek.
Greek - The International Language:
Greek is the ideal international language because it
has the homogeneity and richness of German, the flexibility of Spanish, the
precision of French and the musicality of Italian.
