Didn't you claim you to be "educated" and "intelligent"?

If you stand by that self-characterisation you have to retract this post. If you want to be known as the poster who says Grece was "backward" in antiquity you are unintelligent and uneducated.

You can't have it both ways.

The Greeks produced the most inventions and contributions per capita to world civilisation of all peoples.

There is a sliver of truth in your derogatory post: the Greeks don't have resources in the poor soil of their homeland, but thehy more than made up in antiquity by being creative. The Greeks had to work extra hard to survive; they had to turn to industry and trade to employ the surplus of their people in ancient times. That is why the Greeks are renowned even today as shrewd business people; less well known is that they invented so many things. Look up who invented the world's first computer... more than 2000 years ago. It was the Greeks. The computer wsas found at Antikhera. Of course, it was not a computer such as your Apple. But it was a most wonderful and accurate calculating device.

You are dumber than a stalactite.

Chinese commoners  never wore silk until the 20th century. Silk was known in pre-China days only to the monarchs and some mandarins; the ordinary Huaxia probably shared the same clothes depending on who had to go out into the public.

If you want to know about European clothes, learn where flax was used to weave into dresses. You can also do some online reading on Oetzi the Alp Mummy. Oetzi was a European who died ca. 5300 years ago after being shot by a dart while crossing the Alps. His clothes have ben meticulously investigated and researched. It is amazing how modern the EUropeans were so many millennia ago.

And for your information: Oetzi received acupuncture long before Chinese medics started plaguing their patients with golden needles.

Ah, the Insignificant Other knows that Anatolia is in "Asia"

Again, you are totally uninformed.

The West is not confined to Europe; it encompasses Anatolia, the Caucfasus - both in "Asia" - and other parts.
Europe was colonised by peoples coming from Sumer, Iran, Caucasus, Anatolia, the Levant.

WHen you use the word "Asia" you are using an originally GREEK name that applied only to Anatolia and the region that is today called "Syria" and "Lebanon".

My first reply was filtered out, and I have no idea why. I merely confronted your lies with facts.

WIthout the Greeks modern maths would not be taught around the world. The Greeks did not invent algebra but they were the cleverest at that time in working with algebraic formulae. The Greeks and the Egyptians were soulmates in transmitting ancient knowledge to us, along with the Indians.
