    What is modern "Hellenism" and "Hellenic" culture?

    An honest and fair assessment would be nice from the Greeks here.

    Language aside, which (despite its dubious significance today where it concerns 'Greek' after its forced spread over years of propaganda from the 1700's) if used as an argument would make half of the world followers of Angloism and Anglo culture.......

    1) What exactly is it that connects you to the ancients in terms of culture?

    2) How exactly does this culture distinguish you from the other Balkan peoples?

    3) What is unique in your culture?

        To answer your question SOM, first you must tell me what you understand Hellenism to be.

          I don't understand it at all RH, hence the request for an explanation.

          Care to have a crack at it? I simplified it into 3 questions on the first post, please feel free to explain it to me.

            1) What exactly is it that connects you to the ancients in terms of culture?

            The culture is dynamic and is continually evolving. I am part of this evolution from the ancients.

            2) How exactly does this culture distinguish you from the other Balkan peoples?

            The culture has its differences and nuances just like any other culture has. Language, writing, music, are some of these differences.

            3) What is unique in your culture?

            The fact that God chose the Hellenic language to reveal his New Testament.

                  Was the above supposed to be a joke?

                  The dynamic culture was Roman and Christian well after it was "Hellenic" 2,000 years ago. In this we all share from the Balkans.

                  I specifically said apart from language, of which writing is a part of, for the previously stated reasons. As for music, you aren't talking about those out of tune songs and eastern music that would fit into any Turkish shop? Or its Italic influences, seriously....

                  God didn't choose the "Hellenic" language, the people that wrote the bible 2,000 years ago chose the languages which were in most frequent use at the time on an official level, apart from Hebrew that is Latin and Greek - Greek, not "Hellenic". In case you are unaware, "Hellenes" are pagans and devils in Eastern Christianity.

                  Gee, and I was beginning to think that you were at least half normal....only to find out that you are another cult member in this 10,000 years of "Hellenic" continuity theory...ts,ts,ts.

                      Aside from the New Testament bit ... I am equally Hellene. And Daskalot explained the New Testament bit very well. Although, it should be noted that nobody is sure what the original texts of the New Testament were actually written in.

                        No, I think you do mate, the crucifiction has nothing to do with the language(s) of the bible.

                            I don't laugh about the language, but the implication that God chose it.

                            Have you discussed this lately with God, if maybe he is going to announce newer Testament in Hellenic? Or he changed his preferences, now it will be in English?

                            Greet God from me when you drink a Turkish ups Hellenic Cofee with him.

                              Daskalot explained? Where?
