    hi, i am trying to write a paper on the massive scientific and technological achievements of the european peoples, including those in the diaspora in america, and it quickly becomes clear that virtually everything that has been invented is by those of european descent.

    surely something has been invented by others? i ask this because i want to write a balanced paper.

    sorry, no one invented chemistry.

    its always existed in some form.

    the great advancements have come from the europeans in the past few centuries though.

    To post a list of all such inventions would be too big to fit on this thread. And to educate someone of such, with such a glaringly obvious lack of education as yourself could take years.

    Your inability to research yourself explains perfectly your inability to put forward a well considered argument.

    Do it yourself. You might learn something.

    I know something the Europeans didn't invent.

    Those neck rings that some tribes put around their necks to make their necks longer so they can say "hey I have a well long neck."
