Somebody asked why Egypt always has to figure into mysteries, and I think I can tell you. It's because they aren't black, or even exceptionally
The Euro-centric school of thought seems to tolerate middle easterners because that school is descended from the closed mindset of the old church, and
that mindset can acknowledge Arabs as offshoots of God's chosen people, the Jews. They might even suggest that Jewish slaves built the pyramids if
you listened to them long enough.
Blacks, on the other hand, were once considered descendants of the sinner Cain, which made them the last ones acknowledge for anything (although it
doesn't help that they never built a pyramid or a stonehenge to get our attention).
Asians are disrespected in the same way, because they are essentially lost to biblical history. The closest reference you can find is that the semetic
descendants of Lud travelled beyond the lands of Elam (southern Iran). Indirectly, you might also find out, depending on your source, that the elamite

According to archaeologist Dr. Bruce Bradley, both the Solutreans and the Clovis folks made beveled, crosshatched bone rods, idiosyncratic
spear points of mammoth ivory, and triangular stone scrapers.
Solutreans are from Spain/France.
2. As stated earlier, the Clovis start in the East, not the West, as would be expected.
3. (somebody help me out because i couldn't get a source at the moment) Isn't Hurricane a european word? Yet it is the name assigned to the "heart
of the sky" in the popul vuh. Why did Europeans use a South American God as the name for a weather phenomenon?
I feel like this post is falling short of what I hoped to prove, but it's long enough for the moment, as has been my day. Sorry if I didn't shatter
all of modern anthropology in a single stroke.
