“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.”
