Mycenaean boats sailing from Greece to Cyprus? Not a chance!

CASE #1: The year is 2015AD and hundreds of refugees are drowning trying to cross a mere 12 kilometers from the nearest Turkish shores to the Greek island Farmakonisi using 21st century boats and wearing life jackets.

CASE 2#: The year is circa 1200BC and archaic Mycenaean boats are allegedly sailing with ores (a 750km perfect straight line from Crete) to settle on Cyprus!

What is the point of this thread? It will make no difference whatsoever to your "Greek" compatriots.

It’s further evidence that the notion of a Mycenaean colonization of Cyprus was physically impossible.

The only reason that those boats with the refugees sink is because they are overloaded, not because of the great distance. Why do you think nearly none of the other 1000s of boats that sail in the same sea never sink? You are again trying to argue against well known facts. Sea travel and trade in the Mediterranean during that period is an undeniable historical fact and only an idiot like yourself would question it using such simplistic and ignorant arguments. How old are you? 6?


P.S. the boats then, just like now, don't necessarily reach their destination in one go. They can make stops in other locations if necessary.

Who cares, these arguments are getting old. Nationhood is a manmade construct, it is in your head. Even if Mycenaeans did colonise the island, your genetic pool would have been mixed beyond recognition by now.

Let us know once you figure it out. :lol:

What is physically impossible is for your IQ to rise above 80.

Do you mean metallic ores, wooden oars or, as a cockney would say, - whores? :D

Go tell Akinci not to worry about nationhoods and to forget about the "TRNC".

Atta boy! :wink:
