Nostradamus

Posted April 20th, 2016 at 02:44 PM by achillz25

I have not seen a Nostradamus post that is correlating current events to the prophecies.

Top ten TURKISH scholars

Posted April 11th, 2016 at 08:20 PM by Piccolo
Updated April 19th, 2016 at 07:19 PM by Piccolo

Well, I never really viewed the Turks as a cultural/intellectual power in the same sense as the Persians or the Greeks. HOWEVER, they produced some notable scholars; so I will not gloss over them.

3.

4. Mimar Sinan- Turkish architect...
