    because the Nobel prize is truly an accurate estimation of the most prized and beneficial members of society - thank you for reminding me, I almost forgot
    Yes, it is. Unless you have a better way to know them.

    Again, you're putting words into my mouth. I didn't say that non-Western civilization deserved ALL the credit. But similarly, to say that Western civilization does when like you said, advancements at that time were interlinked and always a product of some prior discovery or step towards discovery is horribly limited. And sure, Ancient Egypt and modern Egypt are not similar in many ways but how does that pose a justifiable reason to disregard an entire nation's contribution to progression?
    The contribution of ancient Egypt to our modern knowledge is extremely limited. The overwhelming part of what we know has been discovered in the last decades, and the overwhelming part of that has been made in the West (if you count Japan in the West). It is changing now with the rise of China though.

    De Solla Price famously said "80 percent to 90 percent of the scientists who ever lived are alive now".
