Forget Conspiracy Theories Says Head of Antikythera Mechanism Research Team



nauagio-antikuthiron“Conspiracy theories did not exist in the antiquity. The ancient Greeks were rationalists and scientists with the original sense of the term. All scientific researches on the Antikythera Mechanism, one of the greatest mysteries of the ancient world, dated between 150-100 BC, lead to the same conclusion.

“There were no conspiracy theories,” Kyriakos Efstathiou, a professor of mechanical engineering at the Aristotelion University of Thessaloniki and head of the group that studies Antikythera Mechanism, was quoted as saying by ANA-MPA.

“All of our research has shown that our ancestors used their deep knowledge of astronomy and technology to construct such mechanisms and based only on this conclusion, the history of technology should be re-written because it sets its start many centuries back,” he noted.

Efstathiou explained that the Antikythera Mechanism is undoubtedly the first computer of the antiquity based on the scientific term for the computer according to which “it is a machine with an entry where we can import data and this machine can bring and create results based on a scientific mathematical scale. Never before did we have such a device.” Efstathiou underlined that “we do not simply refer to a computer but to a super-computer.”

  1. “All of our research has shown that our ancestors used their deep knowledge of astronomy and technology to construct such mechanisms and based only on this conclusion, the history of technology should be re-written because it sets its start many centuries back,”

    Well that settles it, we are not related to the ancient greeks then.

  2. “Conspiracy theories did not exist in the antiquity”.

    Like when King Leonedas or Charles Matel saw millions of “refugees” show up on there door step. They didn’t have to theorise what they were and knew someone conspired to horde them all into invading.

  3. Considering so many “Greeks” vote for antihellenic Marxists their lack of intelligence suggests a good case for it.

  4. What should they vote for the “anithellic” corrupted party a or the “antihellic” corrupted party b?

  5. You do reallize that greece is far behind not only in reforms but as a society compared to most european countries?

  6. They didnt have a freaking ephany and said “hur dur lets become marxist”

    They elected him for multiple reasons.

    1.They tried all the others.

    2.He and his party are the only ones who havent rulled so they are not corrupt yet.

    3. He was nothing a few years ago but couldnt shut up about how he is gonna fight them and how he can get a better deal and has alternatives, regards if the voters were peasants or not at some point he was gonna get votes just so he shuts up already and so something.

    4.He was so against the austerity and the memorandum that they thought he will fight eu really hard which HE DID, unsucessfully, but dont forget usa was constantly advising him during negotiatons.

    Not that any of that matter EU is not democratic, it is techonocratic, they wont move from their positions one bit they will make the opposition move, none of the techonocracts that run EU take their orders from EU citizens.

    5.The previous goverments didnt do reforms, young “rocket scientists” have to leave the country or cant get a job, who was gonna do a “progressive” change that appeals to the young? ND? pasok? Nope, tsipras, that is what his party supposely is about, to be more “progressive” but all the bashing you doing is not changing anything and you have yet to say anything about the idiots who vote for golden dawn.

    “We will not only continue to decay economically but due to the mass illegal immigration”

    What illegal immigration? They dont want anything to do with greece there is nothing for them here, they are going in europe which is perfectly legal and mandatory by EU laws, who created those laws? Not tsipras eu, Who pushes for austerity despite it has failed? EU, so who exactly are you angry about?

    i dont get how you can be so nationalist and yet you dont say anything about EU which is clearly a plan for a global goverment and greece wont be a nation but a state in the new EU and finally no tsipras doesnt represent a large portion, he represnts the largest portion of the people who actually do vote and are tired of the old parties who caused this mess in the first place.

    So again what do you vote?

    golden dawn? laos? leventis? potami?

    What is the solution, they are all stupid.

  7. Wrong. Ancient Greeks created the computer and did not copied middle east, because such computer and gears didn’t existed thousands of years in middle east. Talos the firs robot that defended crete was created by ancient greeks. Atlantis in greece ( when it is found ) is the only proof that will debunk middles east and asia that claims they have invented other things.

    As I said. Antikythera is ancient greek and must not allowed to tell wrong stories that the ancient greeks learnt how to build antikythera from middle east.

  8. Clearly you dont know what you are talking about.

    Ill quote the americans when they wanted to assacinate Papandreou because they thought he was a communist for talking about socialism.

    “Dont listen what he says look at what he does”

    So lets recap, do we live in a communist state? Nope. Is there seperation of church and state? Nope, did he got us out of the EU? Nope, we still own private property. He is not talking about feminsm and racial privligies, he is still selling of assets and we are in a harsh austerity program.

    So what did “marxist” tsipras actualy changed?
