The ancient egyptians had writing systems and maths while the rest of the world was just trying to come up with a way of tallying how much wheat they had. And people still marvel at the pyramids because historians and scientists are still uncertain how components of the construction were managed with the technologies of the time - which is why we have idiots that go on about aliens.
Not to mention they had a system of ethics that basically went: for every bad you do, you should do a good... or else a crocodile will eat your heart in the afterlife. Preferably more good than bad, because I'm not sure what Anubis was supposed to do if the scales went even. Still, it was the first record of "do onto others as you'd have them do onto you", which is a pretty chill way of looking at things especially compared to everyone else at the time. Hey, times were rough, and not everybody was advanced as the Egyptians who am I to judge.
But seriously what's not to be impressed by?
Again, its been estrablished that writing happend multiple places, around the world at aroudn the same time. It wasnt an Egyptian invention. But none the less an important one. Same goes for the idea of keeping track of your shit. Its part of becomming an empire, most around that time did those things. Sure Egypt did it aswell, but it sounds to me like youre implying i need to be impressed with something, that multiple empires did? Sure, Egypt was fucking amazing for a 2000 BC empire, they did all the things required to build a basic empire where people didnt starve, and they had a surplus of workforce to go kill other plebs. But so did others. Nothing amazing about that.
Having gods isnt really an impressive feature either, pretty standard. Judging our morals and values onto the Egyptians in an attempt to make them seem greater than they were contemporary, isnt something i find humorous. I do adore your attempt at it. But even then, i dont believe in karma, so im not sure i would personally condone the corc eating my heart. And the scales were not anubis, it was Osiris, but multiple gods partook in the ritual.
Anyway, the argument you're making is that Egypt was special. It wasnt, actually it has been known to be one of the lesser ancient empires, CEPT for its ability to stack stones. For some reason, they fucking aced that shit. Maybe its due to the God-King idea. Anyway. No, Egypt wasn't amazing compared to contemporary Empires.
I can be as objectively true, if you think what they did was impressive to you, so be it. Just dont be negligent in your beliefs. Egyptians werent really that special, the reason we learn so much about them, is due to the romans and greeks taking over their shit and propergating their culture to us as White Europeans.
Egypt wasnt impressive compared to other empires at the time. They didnt do anything others didnt, and the only reason we know much about them is thanks to the Greeks and Romans.
I actually agree with you on what you're saying here, although the writing system didn't actually develop in Egypt, but ekusas (who was a bit of a dick, granted) did specify sub-Saharan.
no its that he said Ancient Egypt wasn't all that impressive
psh yeah right
The ancient Egyptians were catalysts for agriculture, culture, architecture, and many other things for the development of civilization in not only northern Africa, but Europe, as well. Ever heard of the library of Alexandria? Granted, that came later than "ancient" Egypt, I guess, but it was still created in 305 B.C. It was known as the largest masses of knowledge and libraries in the world until it was burnt down. Egypt has a very rich culture that is tainted by the adoption of invasive and zealous religion. Before the modern shitfest that the Middle East and most parts of Africa came to be, Egypt was a powerhouse and center for culture and wealth. They made MANY important discoveries, and influenced a large part of the world.
Yea, i have, and it was a greek idea and invention, you inbred retard. Egyptians build shit out of stone, thats what they did. They hardly invented anything, and were given everything by nature naturally. They created an empire, based solely on what nature had provided, while never taming it. As expected of 2000 BC empires. Cant give them more credit than its due.
If you want to be impressed by ancient empires, look into china or middleeastern plebs. They got it figured out.
Egypt? Was and still is, about a stacking stones, and hoping the nile, doesnt run dry.
Also, did you think Alexandria was named after some Egyptian or? Like.. Wtf was the reasoning you used to make that argument? Its a well known fact, that Egypt after being manhandled by Alexander, like the rest of the world, tried HEAVILY to make Greeks migrate there, due to the nature of Egyptians being complete and utter dogshit compared to Greeks, at pretty much everything. Alexandria specifically was for greeks... Like come on man, are you dumb or?
Egypt is not sub-Saharan, and do you know why the city was called "Alexandria?"
Because it was founded by Alexander, the Macedonian (Greek) king who ruled Egypt at the time. In that case, the culture didn't go from Egypt to Europe, but from Europe to Egypt.
Not that Ancient Egypt didn't have significant accomplishments, but your example is poor.
Egypt is not Sub-Saharan.
Whoops. It was late and I totally missed when he wrote "Sub-Saharan"
King Mansa Musa from the Malian Empire once made the Hadj to Mecca and along the way distributed so much gold that he crashed the economies of everywhere he went, then tried to buy the gold back on his return journey after realising what a mess he'd made, but it was too late.
That's pretty amazing. It's not magnificent or anything, but Mansa Musa is a fun and interesting cautionary tale. It's an exception to what is otherwise a fairly dull continent, but let's be fair, Africa is not exactly conducive to proper civilisation building. Agriculture is hard, native farmable plants and animals are few, raw materials for construction are scarce, and the heat makes hard labour incredibly difficult. It was just much easier to build civilisations in other parts of the world. Doesn't mean we should discount the lack thereof and the reality of what that means, but we can be at least a little bit sympathetic as to why it never happened.
So the best thing they had was a Trump with a bigger ego
and a warlord with anger issues.
I'm sure there were better things out there... well, hopeful at least, but I don't have a comprehensive understanding of the subject so I'ma just say it would be nice if we had more readily impressive examples than those two, yes. It is a little... underwhelming.
Actually, the only thing Africa lacks is bovine.
Zebra are a good substitute for horse, fair land is plentiful and edible plants are everywhere. And in terms of mineral richness, it far outstrips Europe and possibly even South America.
Africa is the Garden of Eden. But ya it's hot.
To add on to what questionableferret said about zebras, another big problem is that they don't have a social structure. Zebras stick together because that makes it less likely that they'll die by lion, but there's no leader that the others will follow. On the other hand, catch, lead or train the dominant horse in a group and the others will follow suit, as will their offspring.
Zebras are very, very different tho horses. They can not be domesticated. They are distinctly violent creatures. Plus, they're actually closer to donkeys than they are to horses. The edible plants are everywhere but because of low rainfall the land is hard to farm and irrigate because of how dry it gets. These plants typically can not exist in large clusters like you need for farming. It is more efficient to just let them grow where they can grow and remember where they are for harvest.
Mineral richness is one thing, but it's hard to get to that without the proper tools and knowledge, both of which never made it too far down into Africa specifically because of how impassible the continent is.
I mean, I'm thumbing you up because you're right, just wish ya'd be polite about it.
Eh. I'm trying to be nice where I can. No point holding hate in your heart. I cannot hate those I don't know. But I do not advocate allowing them to overtake the world. TBH I think the world would be better if it were just whites, asians, some hispanics, and native Americans. I know that saying that means there'd be no more jontron or dave chappelle, but I think the world would be able to live with it.
Jontron has no black in him, Persian is still Caucasian. As for Dave Chappelle, well he'said not bad, but he'said no Robin Williams.
Nobody is robin Williams but robin williams. But dave chappelle is a funny motherfucker. He's one of the few blacks that are ok, and by few I mean somewhere debatably in the thousands but still, that's few in the big picture.
