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?
