Which I why I stated WESTERN Civilization. Why do I get bogged down in ignorance. See the source material, Evolution of Civilizations by Carroll Quigley, and educate yourself.<quoted text>
You do realize that the Greeks and Romans were European, right? Both civilizations included parts that were in Asia Minor, but Greece and Rome are definitely European.
