There is no european, it is not a defined entity but a group of different cultures on a particular land mass.

Being Cypriot is just that, born, bred and with culture, religion and language, so you cannot compare and cannot say do you feel european as there is no such thing.

Hope that helps.

...we are Europeans politically, we choose to be (read: State). By birth, it is a matter of who nurtures you, a language, a habit/custom, a faith, a community in which there are communities (read: Nation).

1. How do you think whether Cyprus is a European country?

Cyprus is where all started; without Cyprus you wouldn't have Europeans. People like the English, the Germans and the other barbarians would still live in caves, without us.

I would just like to point out that evidence of some of the oldest artificial dwellings anywhere in Europe can be found at Star Carr in Yorkshire, in England, dating back to about 8770 BC, with evidence of the oldest carpentry in Europe...so we managed to move out of cave dwelling without any help of Cypriots, thank you very much. And we were building massive stone structures long before the Mycenaeans in Greece - see Ness of Brodgar dating from about 3500 BC...

Name a few ancient English philosophers and their works, dog...

I'm waiting... (but not forever) :mrgreen:

That's nothing!

Prehistoric axes found on a Greek island suggest that seafaring existed in the Mediterranean more than a hundred thousand years earlier than thought.
