No matter where you'll try to scratch the surface, true colours do not touch the light...I am talking about ,history books presentations ,of their storys...But i get that nusty feeling, that after the fall of last Imperium,first west than east,all western human history was :return of old vampires back on stage...
  After the fall of imperiums,lot of people lost there homeland...So they were "inventive" and were created by there imaginations and  power,states like they are today,lying in the books,there ex. slaves about truth...And after 1600 years,after West fall,550 years,after East fall ,you need very inventive person(maybe Borg civilization, member),that can conect all strings in logical wholeness.In meantime real civilizations from that theritory,were distroyed(or pushed to live in alusions) and real histories were erased...We know that like:Divide et impera.

The Parthenon could look so much better with the original marbles put back on the temple. However, those marbles should be put to the new Acropolis Museum. Replicas of those marbles should replace the original items at the British Museum.

I can't agree with supporting the return.  Had they not been taken to England, we would not have them now.  In the British museum, you can see copies of some of the marbles that were not taken to England, and the copies are now all we have left - the originals that had been left in Greece are now lost.  The truth is that taking them to England saved many of these marbles from destruction.

Moreover, London is more accessible than Greece - if they had been left in Athens I likely would never have had the chance to see them in person, having never been to Greece, and no plans to do so in the future.  London is a lot closer to people in America and most of the people in western Europe.
