So the notion that we owe it all to the northern European is pure nonsense, but then expected when another idiot peddles idiocy of black superiority.
Not only that, but the rural medicinal practices in Africa were often times more advanced than that of Europeans. Just take C-sections, which most of the Western world believed they taught others, was already practiced in parts of Africa.

"While Barry applied Western surgical techniques, nineteenth-century travelers in Africa reported instances of indigenous people successfully carrying out the procedure with their own medical practices. In 1879, for example, one British traveller, R.W. Felkin, witnessed cesarean section performed by Ugandans. The healer used banana wine to semi-intoxicate the woman and to cleanse his hands and her abdomen prior to surgery. He used a midline incision and applied cautery to minimize hemorrhaging. He massaged the uterus to make it contract but did not suture it; the abdominal wound was pinned with iron needles and dressed with a paste prepared from roots. The patient recovered well, and Felkin concluded that this technique was well-developed and had clearly been employed for a long time. Similar reports come from Rwanda, where botanical preparations were also used to anesthetize the patient and promote wound healing."

Uh, yes.

Quantum physics
General relativity
The uncertainty principle
The internal combustion engine
Manned flight
Spaceflight
Capitalism/Communism/Socialism
Splitting the atom
Representative Democracy
Higgs-Boson
Antibiotics
Dark Matter
Dark Energy

And on and on.

Actually, ancient Africans and other groups already had antibiotics. Again, this is why it is important to gain exposure to other groups.

The extent of knowledge in Western Africa prior to Europeans is only now being discovered and virtually unknown to the Western world.

Today, the Ahmed Baba Institute has nearly 30,000 manuscripts, which are being studied, catalogued and preserved. However, during the period of French colonial domination of Timbuktu (18941959), many manuscripts were seized and burned by the colonialists, and as a result, many families there still refuse access to researchers for fear of a new era of pillaging. Other manuscripts were lost due to adverse climatic conditions for example, following droughts, many people buried their manuscripts and fled.

The manuscripts themselves range from tiny fragments to treatises of hundreds of pages.

Four basic types have survived:

key texts of Islam, including Korans, collections of Hadiths (actions or sayings of the Prophet), Sufi texts and devotional texts
works of the Maliki school of Islamic law
texts representative of the 'Islamic sciences', including grammar, mathematics and astronomy
original works from the region, including contracts, commentaries, historical chronicles, poetry, and marginal notes and jottings, which have proved to be a surprisingly fertile source of historical data.

Actually, that is debated. It is also irrelevent, as I specifially said the last 500 years. Anitbiotics were not being used in Egypt before Alexander Fleming.

As I demonstrated in the last black egypt thread and a dozen others, I have forgotten more about history that you know. If you want to talk about major world-changing discoveries and theories coming out of Africa in the last 500 years, then list them.

It is very relevant as the point is that Europeans did not invent antibiotics. You don't invent something if it is already in existence...LOL.

As mentioned earlier, the rest of the world is now duscovering the wealth of information existing in Africa, specifically Western Africa, which Europeans tried to burn. So we'll see.

It is quite interesting to see the level of insecurity that existed among many Europeans and their descendants were, claiming that Africans couldn't read or write when in fact many simply read and wrote a more difficult language(s). Now we see hundreds of thousands of manuscripts on a myriad of subjects to disprove that...

Again, it is not universally agreed that Egyptians had antibiotics. It is widely believed that they occurred naturally in Egyptian beer, but there is not evidence that they purposely made them. Take it off of the list if you like, and all of the major inventions of the last 500 years are STILL European. If you think some are from Africa, then name them. Show me when Africans went to the moon.

Just stop. No one believes that they were doing quantum physics in Africa, or that they invented an internal combustion engine. Most of the "wealth of information" that you are talking about are texts on Islam, which are pretty worthless and retrograde.

Again I have to remind you--other people are reading through this thread, and you are embarrassing yourself. You are AGAIN only drawing attention to the fact that a lot of your beleif system revolves around fantasy and ignorance of history.

They wrote in writing sytems that were imported in the Middle Ages from Arabia and elsewhere. Ajami and the like. They wrote mostly texts on Islam. It is something to be proud of, but it hardly makes anyone insecure. This is a fanstasy.
