Not a single shred of evidence was found of a “Mycenaean” people or from a “Mycenae”, which completely squashes Greek mythology that is being fed to our students by our daft and treasonous Ministry of Education.


A quick wikipedia search downgrades most of your claims of 'true facts' to unconfirmed theories.

Tangible evidence that has already been scientifically dated and deciphered and can now be found sitting in museums, is no longer up for debate!

Enjoy yourself...

This is the ONLY Cradle of Civilization known in the region where language, alphabets, pottery, the wheel, religion, and everything else was invented or discovered before it made its way everywhere else and ultimately to Europe, so forget Greek mythology and green horses!

So, letters from the time period between 1400 and 1300 B.C. refute claims about the Myceneans having sufficient boat technology to arrive to Cyprus at 1200 B.C.

I have one word for you: BULLSHIT

If nothing else, the Phoenician's arrival to Cyprus 100 years before the Greeks proves that ship building technology was already advanced enough for the Mycenaeans to travel to Cyprus without a problem.

:roll: I just picked 1200BC for my boat thread as a rough number just for the sake of the argument but I think you'll find that those selling the Mycenaean mythology are talking about 1300BC to 1500BC or thereabouts.

But anyway, try not to waste our time will feeble reactions like this (and like you did in the other thread where you ended up derailing it) because you're clearly not well versed in these matters so if you sit back and enjoy you may actually learn a thing or two.

I'm now going to fast-forward by about 1500 years to see what the bible has to say about Cyprus in the next post...

The Bible's "Acts of the Apostles" (or book of Acts), is considered to have been written sometime between 60AD-150AD and includes this interesting verse...

"Some of them, however, men from Cyprus and Cyrene, went to Antioch and began to speak to Greeks also, telling them the good news about the Lord Jesus."
Acts 11:20


This verse clearly informs us that (1) Cypriots were among the first people spreading Christianity to others and specifically to Greeks in this case, and (2) that Cypriots and Greeks were considered and treated as two separate and distinct people.

Once again, there is no mention of "Mycenaeans" or any suggestion by the author that Cypriots were "Greeks", in fact he clearly differentiates and distances the two people where they encounter in the north of the Levant (Antioch) and Libya (Cyrene).

The Cypriots were the first people to embrace Christianity outside the ME. Biblical evidence of Cypriot faithfulness in Christianity follows:

Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the Lord, and with your children's children will I plead.

For pass over the isles of Chittim, and see; and send unto Kedar, and consider diligently, and see if there be such a thing.

Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.

Jeremiah 2:9-11


In other words... God is telling someone off by saying... "Have a look at the Cypriots... do they obey idols?" as example to others.


* Chittim = Tziti in Larnaca

God used the faithfulness of Cypriots as an example to others in the bible! (<--Thanks to the great Cypriots like Varnavas and Mnason but more on them later)

Isn’t that something to be proud of? :)

The same piece made easier to understand in the New International Version...

“Therefore I bring charges against you again,”
declares the Lord.
“And I will bring charges against your children’s children.
10 Cross over to the coasts of Cyprus and look,
send to Kedar[a] and observe closely;
see if there has ever been anything like this:
11 Has a nation ever changed its gods?
(Yet they are not gods at all.)
But my people have exchanged their glorious God
for worthless idols.

Christianity in Cyprus goes back to the days when Jesus was in his final days in the flesh thanks to great Cypriots like Varnavas and Mnason that I mentioned earlier. These early individuals were partially responsible for the spreading of Christianity into Europe and Greece of course which brings me to another important point…

From the onset of Jesus’ arrival Cypriots became devout Christians but Greeks were not and this is further strong evidence that they are in fact two distinct people for the church of Cyprus goes back to 431AD but the church of Greece only to 1833AD! That’s a massive time span!

It is impossible for “Greeks” to have followed two separate religious paths… proving yet again that Cypriots had no religious affiliation with Greeks because they were a distinct people going separate paths. :wink:

Some of the disciples from Caesarea accompanied us and brought us to the home of Mnason, where we were to stay. He was a man from Cyprus and one of the early disciples. Acts 21:16


We can clearly see that Greeks were NOT Christians but idolaters whereas Cypriots were devout early followers of Christianity so it is therefore IMPOSSIBLE for these two people to have been the same!

Honestly, your posts are just layers built upon layers built upon layers of atrocious feces. The more you let the rest of the forum pick your mind, the more primitive and hateful your outlook on the world seems.

From the onset of Jesus’ arrival Cypriots became devout Christians but Greeks were not and this is further strong evidence that they are in fact two distinct people for the church of Cyprus goes back to 431AD but the church of Greece only to 1833AD! That’s a massive time span!


The Ecumenical Patriarchy of Constantinople was founded in 451 AD and served as the Christian Church of all Eastern Orthodox (Greek speaking but not limited to Greeks) Roman subjects of the Byzantine and later on Ottoman Empires.

1833 was the year the Ecumenical Patriarchy of Constantinople gave Autocefally to the preexisting regional church of Greece for political reasons, because they had just gained their Independence from the Ottoman Empire.

The only Greeks who didn't convert to Christianity right away were the Maniots, who lived in solitary, inhospitable villages that in some cases could only be accessed with boats. Eventually, they all became Christians around 800AD. Feel free to wail on them for it all you want, but just know that during Ottoman Occupation the Maniots were the only Greek lot that consistently got their way with the Ottomans. They massacred the Ottomans who tried to subjugate them, time and time again.

At the same time, we the Cypriots, have always been the docile pussies that let everyone come to our land and take whatever they want, then support them on top of it. We did it when we dropped our swords and left Onisilos to die by Persian hands. We did it when we allowed Rome to rule us with a petty governor and never once revolted. We did it when we just let Richard the Lionheart sack the island wily nily.

At least, in our history we also had people who had a bit of a backbone, and I hope someone like that is born soon, but we'll probably kill him before he can save us.
