El Naschie's Rosa column: Not dead yet

Amazingly, a column for Thursday 10 February 2011 has appeared. The road to Alexandria. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

He talks about Alexandria's glorious scientific past. He name-drops Leonhard Euler, and the Greeks Diophantus and Pythagoras. He talks about his PhD in structural engineering. And about the golden ratio. But this column, like the last two, seems canned. There is no acknowlegement of current events or, as far as I can see, any clue to suggest it was written recently.

  1. El Naschie says that Pythagoras studied first in Alexandria. As far as I know, Pythagoras died almost 150 years before Alexandria was even built.

  2. From Wikipedia:

    "In ancient times, Alexandria was one of the most famous cities in the world. It was founded around a small pharaonic town c. 331 BC by Alexander the Great."

    "Pythagoras of Samos (Ancient Greek: Ὁ Πυθαγόρας ὁ Σάμιος Ho Pythagóras ho Sámios "Pythagoras the Samian", or simply Ὁ Πυθαγόρας; c. 570-c. 495 BC)"


    Hossam, I am in awe. Respect!
