A Bulgaria expedition, the fist of a kind, has left for Iran to search for proof for the Iranian origin of Bulgarians.

The 20 explorers from the “Bulgaria Our Ancient Homeland” expedition will travel 9 000 km and left in the wake of the news that Bulgarians are only 20% Slaves and there genes are very close to those of people living in the Pamir region.

The author of the above theory, Stoyan Stoylov, made headlines by his publication of the results of a DNA analysis which revealed new facts about the background of ancient Bulgarians.

“The theory is that Bulgarians are part of the large Iranian family – as anthropologic type, language, culture and religion. The first place where they lived is noted as the Imeon mountain which is largely believed to be the today’s Pamir,” the leader of the expedition, Alexander Iliev, explains.

The expedition is organized by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) and the University of Sofia. Their pilot project was a trip to Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan in 2008 where they found another version of Bulgaria’s famous Madara Rider.

The team will visit 10 ancient cities to research archeological and historic sources that can prove the connection between Bulgarians and Persian.

"I see you also have to read a book about the cradle of civilization in Mesopotamia. Looking at the map is not sufficient to enlighten you. Not only your geography is delusional, LOL. "

Blah...blah...blah...Dummkopf! When you can't find something substantial to pester me with, you always resort to splitting hairs. Pedantic Kraut! You lost the war, never forget that!

"Yes, and yes. Mesopotamia was in the fertile crescent between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, what is present-day Iraq. However, the present-day Iraqis are not Persians. The Iranians are the descendants of the ancient Persians."

I see you also have to read a book about the cradle of civilization in Mesopotamia. Looking at the map is not sufficient to enlighten you. Not only your geography is delusional, LOL.

Since you are too dense to understand it: Mesopotamia is not in Persia/Iran, and the ancient cultures there were neither created by Iraqis, nor by Perisans/Iranians.

"Where do YOU think is the cradle of civilization? The red light district of Hamburg where you met your Bulgarian slut of a wife? If she charged you more than 10 euros the first time you banged her, she swindled you. You paid 9 euros too much. lol"

Disgusting and vulgar, as usual. But I have to admit that when it comes to red light districts YOU are the better expert, LOL.

"Do you have a map at home? Ever googled where 'Mesopotamia' was located?"

Yes, and yes. Mesopotamia was in the fertile crescent between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, what is present-day Iraq. However, the present-day Iraqis are not Persians. The Iranians are the descendants of the ancient Persians.

Where do YOU think is the cradle of civilization? The red light district of Hamburg where you met your Bulgarian slut of a wife? If she charged you more than 10 euros the first time you banged her, she swindled you. You paid 9 euros too much. lol

"Mesopotamia a.k.a. Persia a.k.a. Iran is the cradle of civilization."

Yes, and Greece is East of Bulgaria, LOL.

Do you have a map at home? Ever googled where 'Mesopotamia' was located?

Mesopotamia a.k.a. Persia a.k.a. Iran is the cradle of civilization. Just about everyone originates from there. If you want to go even further back in history, go to South Africa, the cradle of the human race. Thi is hardly scientific. It is a waste of tax payer's money to conduct hare-brained research like this. i hope this expeditions get arrested and thrown in Iranian jail for spying--the REAL purpose of the expedition. lol

baba nellie would just love this misguided expedition to prove her right so she can continue with her tedious claim that Bulgaria is all part of one big islamic family.
