Well at least you are not hiding that this is just a white-pride issue for you anymore. You clearly are not concerned with facts. You would rather
hold onto beliefs that make you feel better to be white, when they are contrary to facts.
Druids 5000 years ago
There were no Druids in ancient Briton or Ireland or Germany 5000 years ago. The Celts in ancient Briton around 600BCE and the early records of Druids
There is no evidence of druids predating the 2nd century BCE. Greek and Roman writers on the Celts commonly made at least passing reference to
Druids, though before Caesar's report merely as "barbarian philosophers". These writers were not concerned with ethnology or comparative
religion, and consequently our historical knowledge of druids is very limited.
Sorry to burst your bubble.
The archeological records and science shows that Western civilization is older than Eastern civilization
Really and what archaeology is this? The Indus Valley and Yellow civilisation of India and China are the oldest civilisations and contemporary with
Sumeria and Egypt. There was no Europe(Western) then. Most of Europe was uninhabitable. If it had any habitation it was tribal communities which
eventually got civilised by the Aryans.
Since when was Egypt Western?
Reality check: There was no Western civilisation until the Indo-European migrations. No Greeks, no Romans. Nada. Eastern civilisation(which includes
middle Eastern) is the oldest civilisation on the planet and they appeared around 4000BCE.
There is no reason to ignore the great wisdom and accomplishments of Eastern civilizations, but there is also no reason to ignore what held
them back from progress.
What planet are you on and which planets history do you have in front of you? It’s certainly not Earth. The Indian and Chinese civilisation
are the most technologically, economically and scientifically advanced civilisations of the ancient world and their supremacy continued right up into
the late middle ages. Even during Roman times Indian and Chinese civilisation were ahead of every other civilisation in every department.
No progress? Are you serious, or is this is a joke? If it’s not you just lost all your credibility in one go:
Urban planning: Remains of major Indus cities (mature period c. 2600–1900 BCE) display distinct characteristics of urban planning such as streets
crossing each other at right angles, well arranged rows of structures as well as neatly built, covered drainage and sewage lines, complete with
maintenance sumps, running along backlanes. Drains in the ancient maritime city of Lothal for example, designed to be able to take out the
city’s entire domestic sewage and storm-water were mostly underground, and built to high levels of uniformity, whereby the slopes never exceed 1 in
10,000. In terms of segregation, Lothal was divided into three districts: the citadel, the lower town and the dockyard, which were further
divided into smaller administration centres, all having well planned infrastructure such as wide, straight roads along neatly arranged buildings to
suit their purpose.
Plastic surgery: Plastic surgery was being carried out in India by 2000 BCE. The surgeon Sushruta contributed mainly to the field of Plastic and
Cataract surgery. The medical works of both Sushruta and Charak were translated into Arabic language during the Abbasid Caliphate (750 CE).
These translated Arabic works made their way into Europe via intermidiateries. In Italy the Branca family of Sicily and Gaspare Tagliacozzi of
Bologna became familiar with the techniques of Sushruta.
Oven: The earliest ovens were excavated at Balakot, a site of the Indus Valley Civilization. The ovens date back to the civilization's mature phase
(c. 2500-1900 BCE).
Basu's theorem: The Basu's theorem, a result of Debabrata Basu (1955) states that any complete sufficient statistic is independent of any ancillary
Binary numbers: The modern system of binary numerals appears in the works of German polymath Gottfried Leibnitz during the 17th century. However, the
first description of binary numbers is found in the chanda sastra treatise of the Indian mathematician Pingala.
Binomial coefficients: The Indian mathematician Pingala, by 300 BCE, had also managed to work with Binomial coefficients.
Atomism: The earliest references to the concept of atoms date back to India in the 6th century BCE. The Nyaya and Vaisheshika schools
developed elaborate theories of how atoms combined into more complex objects (first in pairs, then trios of pairs). The references to atoms
in the West emerged a century later from Leucippus whose student, Democritus, systematized his views. In approximately 450 BCE, Democritus coined the
term átomos (Greek: ?t?µ??), which means "uncuttable" or "the smallest indivisible particle of matter", i.e., something that cannot be divided.
Linguistics: The study of linguistics in India dates back at least two and one-half millennia. During the 5th century BCE, the Indian scholar
Panini had made several discoveries in the fields of phonetics, phonology, and morphology
Panini-Backus Form: Panini's grammar rules have have significant similarities to the Backus–Naur Form or BNF grammars used to describe modern
programming languages, hence the notation is sometimes referred to as the Panini–Backus Form.
Formal language and formal grammar: The 4th century BCE Indian scholar Pa?ini is regarded as the forerunner to these modern linguistic fields.
Pascal triangle: The so-called Pascal triangle was solved by the Indian mathematician Pingala by 300 BCE.
Fibonacci numbers: In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers are a sequence of numbers named after Leonardo of Pisa, known as Fibonacci. Fibonacci's
1202 book Liber Abaci introduced the sequence to Western European mathematics, although the sequence had been previously described in Indian
mathematics. The so-called Fibonacci numbers were also known to the Indian mathematician Pingala by 300 BCE.
Calculus textbook: The Yuktibhasa, written by Jyesthadeva of the Kerala school of astronomy and mathematics in circa 1530, is widely considered to be
the first textbook on calculus.
Derivative and Differential: In the 12th century, Bhaskara II developed the concept of a derivative and a differential representing infinitesimal
Differential equation: In 499, the Indian mathematician Aryabhata used a notion of infinitesimals and expressed an astronomical problem in the form of
a basic differential equation. Manjula, in the 10th century, elaborated on this differential equation in a commentary. This equation was eventually
solved by Bhaskara II in the 12th century.
Dock (maritime): The world's first dock at Lothal (2400 BCE) was located away from the main current to avoid deposition of silt. Modern
oceanographers have observed that the Harappans must have possessed great knowledge relating to tides in order to build such a dock on the
ever-shifting course of the Sabarmati, as well as exemplary hydrography and maritime engineering. This was the earliest known dock found in the
world, equipped to berth and service ships.
A list of Indian inventions:
Seismometer: The official, astronomer, and mathematician Zhang Heng (78–139) of the Han Dynasty (202 BC–220 AD) invented the first seismometer in
132, a large metal urn-shaped instrument which employed either a suspended pendulum or inverted pendulum acting on inertia (i.e. ground tremors from
earthquakes) to dislodge a metal ball by a lever trip device; this ball would fall out of dragon-shaped metal mouth into the corresponding metal toad
mouth indicating the exact cardinal direction of where a distant earthquake had occurred in order for the state to send swift aid and relief to the
Although it is recorded that the Han Dynasty (202 BC–AD 220) court eunuch Cai Lun (c. 50–AD 121) invented the papermaking process and established
the use of new raw materials used in making paper, ancient padding and wrapping paper artifacts dating to the 2nd century BC have been found in China,
the oldest example of paper being a map from Fangmatan, Tianshui; by the 3rd century, paper as a writing medium was in widespread use,
Woodblock printing: The earliest specimen of woodblock printing discovered is a single-sheet dharani sutra in Sanskrit that was printed on hemp paper
between 650 and 670 AD; it was unearthed in 1974 from a Tang tomb near Xi'an. A Korean miniature dharani Buddhist sutra discovered in 1966,
bearing extinct Chinese writing characters used only during the reign of China's only self-ruling empress, Wu Zetian (r. 690–705), is dated no
earlier than 704 and preserved in a Silla Korean temple stupa built in 751. However, the earliest known book printed at regular size is the
Diamond Sutra made during the Tang Dynasty (618–907), a 5.18 m (17 ft) long scroll which bears the date 868 AD
Although evidence of gunpowder's first use in China comes from the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms Period (907–960), the earliest known
recorded recipes for gunpowder were written by Zeng Gongliang, Ding Du, and Yang Weide in the Wujing Zongyao military manuscript compiled in 1044
during the Song Dynasty (960–1279); the gunpowder formulas described were used in incendiary bombs lobbed from catapults, thrown down from defensive

Ahem, what were you saying about India and China not progressing?
