Europe Regional Message Board
If we're looking at just the land, then we shouldn't count Russia as Europe either. But we do because they have cultural ties with Europe instead of the Asian steppe people.
Turks have stronger cultural ties to Balkans and the Caucasus than the Middle East with the exception of religion. And most Turks aren't extremely religious either. They drink, they smoke, they don't go to mosques (except for the Friday prayer and I don't even think a quarter of the country even attends that) etc. Hell, wearing headscarves were banned in public workplaces and schools until 2010.
I don't think this would even be a subject of debate if Assyrians at the time didn't fail to convert Seljuks to the Nestorian church and you'd all be counting it as another European country.
there is no need to involve the beauty of the rest of the world in this. we know there is ha long bay, victoria waterfalls, amazon rainforest, disneyworld, great barrier reef, etc.
but tell that to all these wannabe european countries, like turkey and georgia
okay by land russia is 23% which is a lot more than turkey anyways, but look at the population: 76% of russian population lives in the european part. but i have no problem disowning russia as europeans if that satisfies those who get butthurt by those who think the entire nation of turkey is europe.
the rest of your argument is just subjective blabbering about culture and religion which is a debate that will never end and no one can win
A Russian living in Vladivostok is still a Russian, therefore a European by the basis of culture. There is little difference between Turks who live in Edirne and Ankara.
And those are not subjective, those facts that I know since I live here. But yes, just because I tell you Turks are closer to Europe, is not going to change Turkey's geographical condition so no-one can ''win''. I think our arguments seperate there. You look at geography while I look at the people. (Though the Bosporus will be gone in a few million years. Then we can argue.)
Ooooh... How low.
Turkey is in Europe. They left much in Europe, changed history forever and done much to us Europeans anyway. It is shame to cut them of. Great Britain and France were safe from Turks, so you don't care? What do yo think, that West of Europe is important, and other parts are on border with Asia, barbarians. I wouldn't say so.
You should remove Britain, Iceland, Scandinavia and America (yes, America) from Europe, instead of Turkey and Russia. Differences make our continent great. And you have so much Turkish influence in Macedonia, Albania and Bosnia. When we talk about obvious influence. When we talk about hidden influence, like grammar rules, way of thinking, way of making food and traveling, way of righting and etc., Turkish influence spreads even to Ukraine and Hungary. So they are part of Europe, even thought they came from Asia
like i'm not against turkey, i am saying that just because turkey shares some arbitrary cultural stuff with europe doesn't make them europe. thats why the best way to determine what continent a country is in, is by taking out a map and see where most of the country or its population physically live in. in the case of turkey it's undisputedly in the asian part, which renders it asian, not european. when you talk about culture, that is up for discussion, but then we don't talk about turkey, but rather turkish culture and i agree that turkisch culture is very european. but turkey as a country is asian , so perhaps turkey is in the wrong continent and have bad luck that they are not in europe.
yes okay, but on the premise that turkey want to be part of europe, it would be bad luck of course
While I agree that it's not any lesser for it, I would probably say it's a bit unfortunate, yeah. Oghuz Turks moved west, south of the Caspian, through Persia. Bulgarians and Hungarians moved through the Northern Black Sea. Now they are in EU and with Schengen, with freedom of movement, while I have to wait for weeks for a visa haha
Of course, that is a very small thing but eh.
