It is only in revisionist Western written 'history' that those who enslaved others, committed genocide and looted people and lands far away were 'saving the souls of those 'barbarians' for Christ, civilizing them and bringing them democracy. They are doing it to this day and still spouting pious BS...
There is convenient, pretended ignorance of knowledge and facts known to other cultures for a long, long time before western scientist discovered them afresh.. That the earth was not the centre of the universe. That there were stars and planets and that the planets revolved around the sun. There were existing stories of evolution of various species, in the correct order. These are all dismissed as 'myths' of supposedly primitive cultures.
The culture of the Middle East, Iran, India and China were rich with knowledge. Sure, then, just as now, the more valuable knowledge was always kept exclusive by a few for their own benefit and advantage. What was considered very esoteric and valuable then is cheap now, but we still have some knowledge that is very exclusive and guarded as treasures because they give some an advantage over others.
What we are witnessing is a gradual change in attitudes and perceptions, and confidence in the world. Asia is rising again after centuries of being down. These are natural historic cycles and will repeat themselves well beyond our little lifetimes.

You bet it is unrevised.

The largest source of Ancient Greek and roman works was found on papyru ...

""The Greeks and Romans knew, unlike the Chinese, that history was more about glorifying yourself with lies.""

I agree with you on this. Thanks for dropping your pretense that ancient Greek and Roman history.
We both agree that ancient Greek and Roman history was nothing more than lies intented to glorify themselves
to anyone in the future stupid enough to believe the stuff.
Of course there are a lot of gullible people in the world. Take the Christians.
They believe God came down from heaven and knocked up a virgin.
The offspring was such an obnoxious know-it-all that he got himself killed and then came back to life a few days later.
And God said anyone who believes this crap will live forever in heaven and those that don't
will suffer forever in the flames of hell.
Yes, there are a lot of stupid people in the world. Some even stupid enough to believe this.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

And, of course, the other two big business religions are just as preposterious.
So if anyone has any doubts about the idiocy of the west they need look no further than the religions of the west.

The abrahamic religions are coming from the ME.

The west has embraced those religions.
The vast majority of Europeans and people in the lands they stole embrace the big three
abrahamic religions.
This proves the vast majority of Europeans are idiots.
