Hop said: AFRICANS NEVER HAD AN ALPHABET SO NO WRITTEN LANGUAGE. AND MATHEMATICS MY ASS. KEEP DREAMING DOC. I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY THE MUSLIMS CONTRIBUTED NOTHING TO FURTHER CIVILIZATIONS AND NEITHER DID AFRICANS. PERIOD
You claim that Africans/Middle Easterners did not develop writing or mathematics. My claim is that they did.
Actually, writing and mathematics was invented by Arabs in the Middle East, and Africans, thru trading, were one of the first cultures to receive this advancement in civilization from the Arabs. Black Africans in Northern Africa were writing, employing mathematics, and using agriculture centuries before yours and mine White ancestors did. Heck, our ancestors were still stone age hunters when Blacks and Arabs were already living in cities.
You don't have to care about what I say, but you should
care about what archeologists and historians have to say.
The difference between my claim and your claim is that my claim is backed up by physical, empirical, archeological evidence.
Your claim is backed up by hatred and racism.
"My last vestige of 'hands off religion' respect disappeared in the smoke and choking dust of September 11th 2001, followed by the "National Day of Prayer," when prelates and pastors did their tremulous Martin Luther King impersonations and urged people of mutually incompatible faiths to hold hands, united in homage to the very force that caused the problem in the first place
