You can look at whatever you like; everything is invented by white European people or their descendants.

From house designs over steam engines, electricity, rail ways, cars, planes.. you name it.

All inventions are made by “White” Europeans, why?

A student from a local university just came back from trip to Africa.

He worked on a “Clean Water” project as volunteer.

When I ask him what they did there, he said we were digging water wells with a spade.

So we have to send our kids to Africa so they can dig holes into the ground because the “Locals” can’t be bothered? wtf

"white" people are generally very competitive. One of the outcomes of that is that we produce many new things, usually as way to give ourselves success over others. It also, especially in recent times, has eroded our social bonds as we try to be competive towards each other. Family structure suffers as well as neighbourhood relationships.

White people are more like ants. Highly productive and despite what we say really desire a structured and controlled society.

Could it be that because the “White” northern Europeans are less focused on Religion?

And therefore take matters into their own hands, instead of waiting for their Messiah?

Re: Why is the entire world civilisation based on “White” northern European achievements?
Why? becasue for better or, probably, worse they are mostly responsible for the world we see around us. Sure that's changing now as Asia starts to gather real power in the world. But for the past 600 years or so, white Europeans were mostly responsible spreading information and technology mainly through invasion and colonization. It was there time, but that time is coming to an abrupt end.

There is nothing racist to acknowledge this as fact, they simply spread around the globe imposing there will where ever they could, and that in turn made them a stronger force in control of most of the technological and industrial breakthroughs in that time period.

That's not to say White people invented all the stuff from the past few hundred years, we just happened to be in control of the societies where these breakthroughs took place. So of course the white person in power will take advantage and ownership of any new thing that makes their lives easier or make them more wealthy.

If you go back before then you will see most technological breakthroughs taking place in the middle east or Asia, and it seems to be heading in that direction again.

Africans have never really been at the center of technological or social change. Sure Egypt is an exception, but you all have to admit Egypt was never really ran by Africans.

This may sound a little racist but the way I look at, and the facts re. human migration also support the idea that Africans are the original people, all other races 'evolved' out of Africans. So it stands to reason to say that Africans themselves never really had to go through the changes and adaptions the rest of the population did as the exited out of Africa into new environments.

So the ones that remained behind literally have not had to physically evolve to new environments, therefore they have remained relatively the same as they were 250,000 years ago. Where as all over races have had to evolve and face new environmental challenges. This eventually gave the other races the advantage of being able to deal with change and progression. Africans are not stupid compared to the rest of the races, they simply have not evolved the same adaptive resources the rest of the population has because their genome has remained in the same environment it evolved in.

With all due respect;

do you believe that Alexander Fleming searched for Penicillin to “Rule the world”?

Or that Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen invented X-ray technology just to make money?

They must have something driving them, a vision of something better don’t you think?

With regards to Asia;

Do you know that the engine in the first Toyota Celica was so well copied from Alfa Romeo that many components like Pistons where interchangeable?

Asia is good at copying things (just ask all the Patent holders around the world that suffer cheap Chinese copying), but never come up with some ideas themselves.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 974819


I guess it's how you determine freedom. Sure the world has gotten a lot better over the past few hundred years, well for most of us in the western world anyway. But You don't really think that's what they were doing when they sailed around the globe, i mean seriously you think they were bringing freedom? they were bringing colonization and they were bringing dictatorship rule in the form of the Monarchy.

I'm not saying it was all bad, it obviously wasnt and a lot of people are probably better off because of the white mans intervention..but not all by a long shot. the majority of the worlds population lives below the poverty lines and most of these people are not white. They live in nations and places where the white man's companies are still taking advantage of their resources and not giving back. Africa has the richest mineral wealth in the world, but does the average African get anything from their inherited lands wealth? Not really, it still lines the pockets of white CEO on the over side of the globe.

If you really think that they brought freedom and that made the world better, then i guess you think thats what America is doing right now in Iraq and Afghanistan, bringing freedom right?? BS, at least back in the day the Europeans were honest about that they were doing..hey we're hear we're stronger then you and will take your resources to make ourselves stronger. It used to be Spices now it's Oil, but still the same reason.

Those speculations are noise in the wind because OP makes the initial following false statement : the so-called modern technology is bringing us some progress.
That's not really sure as what you call " achievements " may rather be in fact " destructions " in the long term.
The sophistication of the tools don't make the user wiser.
And many of other cultures had achieved to create peaceful societies what we are so sadly unable to settle. Worse, our way of life is erasing those paradigms that we don't understand.

That's in some way the truth, because during those times the very same people lived further south and east from Europe then today. When the climate condition changed some centuries ago, they moved to todays Europe which had more friendly conditions then as it was a bit warmer than today and sufficient to grow any food you need.

Asia is good at copying things (just ask all the Patent holders around the world that suffer cheap Chinese copying), but never come up with some ideas themselves.

Sorry, my thesis still stands.

All inventions worth having are made by white northern Europeans! tounge

Why I am a racist?

Because I dare to ask why there is so little that comes from other parts of the globe?

I just wondered why some students have to go to Africa to dig for water?

Was it that they used superior technology (a spade)?

It’s a bit like;

I ask my neighbour to buy my groceries on his credit card, and when he refuses, I call him a racist, right? whatever

Because the British exploit Africa's richness and lazyness!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1898032


That would indicate what?

Africa is perhaps the best continent of the entire Earth.
Africa has everything, all precious metals, coal, oil, and diamonds.

Big parts of the continent could have two harvests per year.
Zimbabwe alone, could have feed a huge part of the African population.

I just wonder why you would allow your kids to starve if you have all the resources. wtf

Re: Why is the entire world civilisation based on “White” northern European achievements?
Those speculations are noise in the wind because OP makes the initial following false statement : the so-called modern technology is bringing us some progress.
That's not really sure as what you call " achievements " may rather be in fact " destructions " in the long term.
The sophistication of the tools don't make the user wiser.
And many of other cultures had achieved to create peaceful societies what we are so sadly unable to settle. Worse, our way of life is erasing those paradigms that we don't understand.
Think twice.

Re: Why is the entire world civilisation based on “White” northern European achievements?
Why? becasue for better or, probably, worse they are mostly responsible for the world we see around us. Sure that's changing now as Asia starts to gather real power in the world. But for the past 600 years or so, white Europeans were mostly responsible spreading information and technology mainly through invasion and colonization. It was there time, but that time is coming to an abrupt end.

There is nothing racist to acknowledge this as fact, they simply spread around the globe imposing there will where ever they could, and that in turn made them a stronger force in control of most of the technological and industrial breakthroughs in that time period.

That's not to say White people invented all the stuff from the past few hundred years, we just happened to be in control of the societies where these breakthroughs took place. So of course the white person in power will take advantage and ownership of any new thing that makes their lives easier or make them more wealthy.

If you go back before then you will see most technological breakthroughs taking place in the middle east or Asia, and it seems to be heading in that direction again.

Africans have never really been at the center of technological or social change. Sure Egypt is an exception, but you all have to admit Egypt was never really ran by Africans.

This may sound a little racist but the way I look at, and the facts re. human migration also support the idea that Africans are the original people, all other races 'evolved' out of Africans. So it stands to reason to say that Africans themselves never really had to go through the changes and adaptions the rest of the population did as the exited out of Africa into new environments.

So the ones that remained behind literally have not had to physically evolve to new environments, therefore they have remained relatively the same as they were 250,000 years ago. Where as all over races have had to evolve and face new environmental challenges. This eventually gave the other races the advantage of being able to deal with change and progression. Africans are not stupid compared to the rest of the races, they simply have not evolved the same adaptive resources the rest of the population has because their genome has remained in the same environment it evolved in.

With all due respect;

do you believe that Alexander Fleming searched for Penicillin to “Rule the world”?

Or that Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen invented X-ray technology just to make money?

They must have something driving them, a vision of something better don’t you think?

you're right.

all the other races have developed in warm climates, where food, shelter, water etc have not really been an issue. Where 'civilisation' got going though, northern europe, we have had to adapt to a much more variable, wet, cold climate, with little natural food available, and that has made us much more inventive, resourceful, just to survive up here.

Then we spread, to Australia. chuckle

It's also why we are MUCH more vulnerable to SHTF events, imho.

You can look at whatever you like; everything is invented by white European people or their descendants.

From house designs over steam engines, electricity, rail ways, cars, planes.. you name it.

All inventions are made by “White” Europeans, why?

A student from a local university just came back from trip to Africa.

He worked on a “Clean Water” project as volunteer.

When I ask him what they did there, he said we were digging water wells with a spade.

So we have to send our kids to Africa so they can dig holes into the ground because the “Locals” can’t be bothered? wtf

What is technology anyway excepts an extension of ourselves?

We are like the beaver that builds a dam, only we not limited to our genetic memory. We can think of new ways to warp and twist and combine the world around us into something we find useful or amusing.

We are all apart of the sprawling genetic mass that is Earth, but we are not content to merely exist with what the bio mass produces. It is in our nature to change and re-order the bio mass to suit us and we are extremely good at it. There is no distinction between man-made and natural as man is natural.

^ so that Large Hadron Collider which is currently creating mini black holes & producing elements & conditions that have not existed since the big bang, is just natures way of playing out the original scenario again...are we on the verge of creating another universe?? if so, it's natures way, maybe nature needed us to get to this stage just so another universe can be born. maybe it takes intelligence to create anything. maybe our gods are simply an intelligent species in another universe that simply went through the motions of existence and development til it got the same point. It questioned it's very beginning and set about creating experiments to understand that process and in doing so inadvertently created not only the same circumstances but an entire new big bang. Maybe it's in natures best interest to create thinking beings, not limited to their instincts. Or maybe we are just a genetic mistake destined to destroy itself. Either way it's all a natural process, now how do we define the word natural??

We've all had this "discussion many times before. It gets us nowhere. Whites this, Asian that, Arabs, Africans, Indians etc etc.
Who is best? That is a rather silly question, times change you know. Which society is ascendent now will certainly decline and another will rise. I suppose the longest lasting are thew "best". Does that mean the Asians are "better" than Caucasians?
Don't waste your life focusing on the things that separate us, better that which unites us, so stick that in your pipe and smoke it!!
