Wikipedia: "no direct evidence has ever been found indicating where in Africa coffee grew or who among the natives might have used it as a stimulant or known about it there earlier than the seventeenth century."

Here's a challenge to you. Name an "island country" that does NOT have at least one secondary island. Remember, rocks jutting out of the sea, or located in a lake or river, are islands.

To take a moment for pedantry, the very first national entity to adopt Christianity as a state religion (it is claimed) was the small semi-autonomous kingdom of Edessa/Osroene in modern-day Turkey, sometime in the late 2nd century. Armenia (it is claimed) adopted Christianity as a state religion in 301 AD. Aksum (Ethiopia) made it a state religion in 330 AD (before this the country was mostly Jewish). The Roman Empire mandated Christianity as a state religion in 380 AD. Evidence for each of these claims get sketchier the farther back you go into antiquity. We only have strong records verifying the exact date of the Roman conversion; which is why the claim from Edessa is often dismissed and the claim from Armenia is also sometimes disputed.
