Ancient philosophy

The ancient Greek philosopher Thales, who lived more than 2,600 years ago, said that
260 years after Thales, Aristotle demonstrated that earth was more dense than water. This proves Thales to be incorrect.

I’m on a riverboat travelling from Üsküdar to Beşiktaş, Turkey.

Aristotle’s claims were likewise debunked.
