The biggest lie about our history is that Persian civilization started with the Medes or the Arians moving into Iran some 3000 years ago from other places, etc……… nothing is farther from the truth!!!
Science has proven Iranians made wine 8000 years ago!! (check wiki) that means civil people had to have lived there centuries prior to that. Archeologists have found 4000 years old houses around Hamedan using premitive glass on windows…… The truth (best theory up to date) is that Persia was in fact the “Craddle of Civilization” which started around the central lake of Iran (today Kavir Markazi) some 10-12000 years ago. With some very few exceptions, nobody ever migrated into Iran – just like most of us here on Iranian.com, everybody migrated away from Iran. The Irish, Croats, Bulgarians, Germans………all once resided in Persia. They all left, just as we did, and for the same reason too!!! Yep – uncivilized nomads/Arabs/Touranis in search of fire, food, wealth,…..have a history of attacking peaceful and civil settlers in Persia.
