Good points. Sedentary culture will trump nomadic culture every time since everyone wants to settle down eventually.From BulgariaGuest
Hello, I am a Bulgarian. First of all some of you pretend not to be rude or at least try to mask it that way but you are! Second, all that mumbling and disbelieving can be ignored of you if you really had any interest in actual history by doing your own research in the archives of Austria, Greece, England and Vatican at least. Not to mention the stone messages in today’s Russia, Armenia, Greece and Ukraine. The archeological findings, tombs and the genome research that proves that there were never been people called Thracians. The fellow Bulgarian whit the very bad English that started this topic have a point in some degree, we were here before the so called Great Flood and yes, we did get back (yes, similar to the Hebrew (there were no Isrealy people in ancient times) story). What people call Thracians were the leftovers of our people who adopted some of the culture of the southern tribes that to be come the ancient Greeks. About Thervel / Tervel / Тервел who was first Kan (not Khan), than he slaughtered Maslama ibn Abd al-Malik over 160,000 Arabs of his 200,000 army in-front of the walls of Constantinople and another 22,000 in the early summer and was given the title of Caesar by the emperor Justinian II him self (all recorded by the roman (byzantine) Theophanes “The Confessor”)! Not to mention things like that the very furst Tzar/Tsar in human history was a Bulgarian too! The first Tzar was Prince/Emperor (Tsar) Simeon I, third son of Boris I the Great, raised to become a cleric but enthroned during the Council of Preslav. Bulgaria reached its apogee and greatest territorial extent. Golden age of Bulgarian culture. Died of a heart attack on 27 May 927, aged 63. He founded the independent Bulgarian Orthodox Church, became the first new patriarchate besides the Pentarchy, and Bulgarian Glagolitic and Cyrillic translations of Christian texts spread all over the Slavic world of the time. It was at the Preslav Literary School in the 890s that the Cyrillic alphabet was developed. Halfway through his reign, Simeon assumed the title of Emperor (Tsar), having prior to that been styled Prince (Knyaz). It was the Rome and the Vatican who gave him the title Tzar due to the baptism of the Bulgarians to the christian fate! I mentioned that we were translating christian texts in Glagolitic and Cyrilic, yes the Cyrilic alphabet was mad by two Bulgarian brothers from Thessaloniki / Solun by the direct request from the Bulgarian Ruler so that we can have new alphabet because he didn’t want more tensions whit the eastern Roman empire a.k.a. Byzantium as they were using our old one, the Glagolic alphabet that was assimilated from the so called Thracians. And all this was achievements from the ancient and early medieval times, we have gave the world much, much more that you probably don’t know, don’t want to know or you simply just deny it because of, you know, blind nationalism or some other ego problems. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a nationalist or anything like that, it’s just that this is history and history is based on facts. Many have distorted our history due to our fate, the ottoman enslavement, Balkan wars, the world wars and the Soviet regime. But evidence of our history survived in many forms and in many places and it’s about time for historians from Europe to start telling that to the world! Until that happens, jokes like F.Y.R.O.M. will tell lies, people like you will make them self look like trolls, clowns or just be rude thanks to ignorance, wars will be fought again and again and the most important one, history will not be history as it will not be based on facts but on the mood of demagogues. If was sounding aggressive, hostile or disrespectful towards the previous people who “commented”, I was. I was raised to treat others the way they treat others because you should treat others the way you want them to treat you and if you are aggressive, hostile or disrespectful towards the people that you meet, you must want to be treated that way too! Just to clarify something here, Tolerance is a term made by and for medical purpose, and it stands for state of the organism in which it turns off it’s immune system to foreign intrusion for better assimilation that turns to apathy and dysfunction of the immune system in long turn until the foreign intrusion takes complete and total control of the given organism. Think of that when you start to insult back. I hope only that after all this, you will all stop for a moment and reflect on everything you were and will say here and everywhere else in your life.
