Why do you think everyone needs to be equal in intelligence at all? This is very liberal cultural imperialist attitude, that everyone must be equal, the implication being 'as equal as europeans', in ability to invent and all that. Everyone is different, so what if they aren't able to make a civilisation? Progress is a western superstition.
As for egyptians, their leaders were greek. From ptolemy to cleopatra.
Already addressed in previous post.
Yes, yes, I know all about Greek ideas about beauty being defined by symmetry, proportion and whatnot. Too bad plato was not a scientist and is not the final word on anything.
They were busy being subjugated by the turks, you know.
You are proving my point.
IQ and the wealth of nations.
Yes yes, slavery is always the excuse. Slavs used to be slaves, hence their name, yet they managed to get somewhere. I think its simply the fact that the people you are talking about are incapable of anything, so they constantly blame white people. Easier to blame other people than to take responsiblity for your own actions and life.
So oppression is a good enough excuse for the Greeks, but not for Negroes?
Anyway I don't think this is going anywhere. I'm going to stop.
