On a separate note : Yesterday I ate something called a 'Turkish Donor' which essentially was a loaf of bread made out like a pocket and filled with marinated chicken, spices and salad; is that really from the Turkish cuisine ?
Armstrong, looks like a twisted version of Döner(Shawarma)
There is slight regional differences between Turkish, Lebanese and some other ones but I think originally its from Anatolia because Shawarma is a deformed Turkish word too.
Jokes aside, a personal question to those who does't believe in islam:
The Turkish culture is heavily (primarily) influenced from Islam, from family affairs to daily ethics, etc.
If you take away islam from the equation what are we left with? We will just become another European country with identical values and system. Then what is the meaning with statehood? If we are not fiighting for certain values to be kept alive then why are we fighting at all? We could just give our land to Europeans when we were occupied by them in WW1.
Since the creation of the republic our country has constantly worked by some groups with trying to eradicate religion from daily life, via the media and certain laws, which is obvious. And we can see the results today to that grand project. But we can also see there is an islamic revival among the youth, who are conscious about their religious identity unlike their parents. So the country's future is bright and full with people who are ready to fight in the name of their belief.
One of the things I love about living in the US?(and no, not the only place I lived, europe too). Their are a minimum of people, at least from the Government...up in your bussiness. (not sayin it aint here...just not as bad as many places)
Depending on where in the US you live, you might encounter similar things. I mean guns with 18 but alcohol with 21? Wtf.
Religions and taboos are shackes that humanity is willing to put on themselves because of their fear of unknown, you take the fear from concept of religion and you will lose the majority of people from faith based systems.
According to wikipedia Zoroastrianism was dated around 6th century BC.
