Assyria paved the way for everyone else.........LOL, Stop trying to act like Assyrians started everything, there were much older civilisations than the Assyrian one
UM, no, theres a reason why our area is labeled the CRADLE of civilization...Ever heard of King Sargon of Akkad and the FIRST WORLD EMPIRE? There was no other military force in the world like we had, there was a reason we conquered what we did, and advanced weaponry was a part of it, chariots were a part of it (Assyrian style not the later Roman)
BTW, Assyrians built the city of Ashur in 4750 BC, this is why our new year is 6755...our history goes back to at least 5000 bc but our calender kicked in like I said, in 4750...and why do you appear to me as a "guest" are you the same buddyrydell???

Why not include the civilisation we're living in right now? An age when man can not only fly to other countries, but also to outer-space. An age when man can recreate life, though not in the most ethical manner, an age when someone can dream a building and it can be created, an age where mathematics allows us to do what we're doing right now. We're living in the greatest civlisation of all time and it all comes from the industrial revolution!

LOL, the Ottoman empire wasn't Ancient, but we still kicked their asses out of Greece The Pesian empire also got their asses kicked by Greeks Listen pichko, theres no need to take cheap shots at Greece just because your country has no history Im sure your ancient people made lovely mud huts
Listen: Ancient Greece was great. That's a pity that their descendants are not so great. But at least you have gyros.
Insults against ethnic groups are a violation of the rules of the board
Greatest Ancient civilization is yet to be discovered. Remember the ancient sea level was 100 meters lower than today due to prolonged ice age. Clues of some sumerged civilization was found nearby the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean near Asia, also Mediteranean sea, and Base of Black sea.
someday when archeologist has good enough equipements and $$$ , they will uncover these mysterous ancient civilizations. world is not 6,000 years old. and also modern history is written in tilt to favor western world. various pyramids ( 100+ ) were found in Xian China probably as old as egyptian's. Chinese are keeping ousiders from exploring these pyramids. Experts are claiming that location of these pyramids will most likely reflect the ancient constellations chinese saw in night skies.
( i don't have links to all that i have said but ... trust me, i have no need to b.s. )

This is possibly a dating mistake. The submerged town is right in the vicinity of the Indus Valley civ.
and Pacific Ocean near Asia, also Mediteranean sea, and Base of Black sea.
-The possible man-made cuts in the stone under the sea off Japan does not constitute civ. -dunno bout Med. -Black Sea? You talking about the submerged villages after the rise in sea levels?
various pyramids ( 100+ ) were found in Xian China probably as old as egyptian's.
These are what you're talking about? -the tombs of the Tangut kings?, a Sinicized civ. in the NW of CHina that got absorbed? -the tombs of Chinese emperors -the tombs of rulers of an obscure civ. in Manchuria
Listen, monkey: Ancient Greece was great. That's a pity that their descendants are so degenerate. That's the biggest shame I can imagine: dumb offsprings of such great ancestors... But at least you have gyros.
Oh come on, everybody knows that nowadays the world is going shit, the Great Persian Empire can only be found in history books whereas (what wants to be called as) the Great Ottoman Empire is in no better condition itself, licking everybodys asses to be labeled a... european country ;D
hahaha......a relationship of trade? "trade"? Is that the PC term for tribute nowadays?
Wow, your a fanatic! I said nubia "outlasted" dynastic egypt, which it did. Comparing egyptian nubian relations to puerto rico and america? No, Lets set a few things straight.
1. I've noticed you've made quite a few erroneous statements, probably out of fanatical egypto-centric zeal,
I don't think Nubia was Christian and I doubt they were in the Crusades.
was one of them.
2. Because of your history, people are less likely to take your statements seriously, instead of reacting out of zealotry, pause, and think about your response.
3. It is a fact of archeology that nubians and egyptians developed concurrently, pre-dynastic egypt there was no "upper" or "lower" egypt, the distinction was not made yet, likewise, the movement of nubians/egyptians up and down the nile aided in the spread of cultural ideas and trade.
4. Egypt *never* conquered all of nubia, mostly lower nubia and middle nubia to an extent. And nubia did'nt get its "civilization" from egypt, kerma nubia was already a centralized kingdom.
5. Nubia remained indepentdant 700 years after the fall of egypt to the muslims, long after the last egyptian dynasty. It continued to flourish even as a muslim egypt sat on top of it. Leading armies in upper egypt several times on the behalf of the besieged christian population.
6. You completely ignored the archeological data from topdog, and instead made an ignorant comment, shows your respectability.
7. Don't get your panties in a bunch, I was'nt assailing egypt's greatness, (even though egypt got beat up by pretty much everybody) I was merely pointing a fact of history.

Nubia did not last until 1450, which you are trying to say. And Nubians never lead armies on behalf of Christian populations. Show proof. Nubia (as in Lower and Upper Nubia) was under Egyptian control much longer than vice-versa, and Lower Nubia (Aswan to the Sudano-Egyptian border) is TO THIS DAY a part of Egypt. Aswan was not a part of Egypt, it was also a Nubian city, yet today it is a fully integralized part of Egypt. Furthermore, Egypt and England had control over the Sudan in the 19th and 20th centuries. It was called Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. Egypt didn't get its asses kicked by everyone, it co-operated with everyone, stop your dumb AFrocentrist banter. You know Egypt was superior to Nubia, but you can't bring yourself to admit it. Do you think people nowadays even care about "Nubia". Of course not! There is not a more popular civilization to the Western world than that of Egypt, which explains why so much hype is being given to the King Tut tour of America. And King Tut was one of our crappiest, least important kings! Imagine, if we found Ramses' tomb fully filled, yeah, imagine that.
