The Rest of the Story about...

Akan sular durmak (lit. To stop flowing waters) -- This idiom is used to acknowledge the definiteness of a law, the truth of a conclusion/oath/word, the validity and strength of a command. It figuratively means 'to be indisputable, be beyond contradiction'.

The story... Turkey's idioms come from her culture, of course -- and that includes her religious culture. In Islam, it's believed that a doomsday cometh. On that day the stars will fall from the sky and burn up, the sun and the moon will break away, mountains will 'walk', the earth will tremble, and water will cease to flow. Thus, according to the idiom, the certainty of the 'Law of Gravity', for example, will endure -- right up to that final judgement day when all earthly things cease to matter, and when even water ceases to flow.
