what did Greece ever do except introduce middle Eastern and Asian inventions and ideas to Europe?LOL how can sumerians blow all western nations in terms of innovation when they weren't even better than the ancient Greeks? Thats right, Sumer was the first civilization. But the Greeks destroyed them when it came to innovation. Sumer literature, philosophy, art, architecture, science has absolutely nothing on what came out of Greece.
First =/= better. Then Britain & France came along and destroyed everything any ancient population (including Greece) ever did.
And Britain also comes out on top in the book of Human acomplishment. Their feats are even more impressive as well because British Isles is just a land full of small islands, and at the time Scotland & England especially Scotland had much smaller populations than the majority of Asian nations. Yet their small population was able to outdue nations of millions.
The stuff they told europe was known to everyone else for thousands of years. even the native Americans were more advanced than mideival europe
