    Re: Greece demands UK return Elgin marbles

    All the legacies of the various countries should be returned to them unless that country gifts them. For example, there are numerous examples of Greek pottery in the Royal Museum in Toronto and Greece could just allow them to keep them since they have numerous examples of their own. The Brits should give back the marbles and be done with it. I will be attending the Brit Museum as soon as I can since I am a researcher on the ancient world, in particular, Greece. But it would be so much better if the marbles were closer to the place where they are found. Archaeologically, that makes far more sense. By the way, the Germans need to do that same since the Nazi bastards stole some amazing relics.

    I also think that the Turks should return Hagia Sophia to the Orthodox church as well as all the other churches they have vandalized. They claim to be a secular society, but in a Muslim country that doesn't amount to much more than allowing posters of half naked women and booze. Beyond that, it's a Muslim country.

    Erm ... why?
    Is the Cordoba going to turn back into a Mosque? How about the Al Asqa Mosque be knocked down for the Jewish Temple ... Even better, lets just hand Mecca to the Pagans -.-'

    I guess you are in the minority, relics will not be returned to the country of origin when there has been a hundreds/possibly thousand year gap from when it was taken. It will destroy Museums around the world and historical relics of the world.

    Oh and BL, NO we should not give back the Queens jewels.

    But as i said previously, you can keep the moral ground. It means little as long as the priceless artefacts is in our possession.
