    You are unaware of Chinese Civilization? Or civilizations in the Indus Valley?

    As a noob asst. prof, she's surely going to be burdened with teaching the intro. to sociology class, and if so, she'll have random students taking care of degree requirements. When she teaches her little niche courses and generally speaking, she will have only students who share her interests. I don't know how many black men are going to be interested in her theories of what's wrong with them either.

    You guys should really learn how to read, or something, because apparently "civilization" is a modern invention (not really an invention anyway but Ill play along) and the Holocaust is happening today.

    Welcome to the year 2015 gentlemen. It is neither BC nor is it the 1930's and 40's. Read guys, READ.

    Who invented reading, by the way?

    If memory serves I may have heard those names somewhere before. Are you saying there's a city (not merely a settlement) that predates Eridu (roughly 5400bc)?

    Civilization wasn't an invention either, huh? Wonders never cease.

    In order to have true civilization in the modern sense one would need a government, bureaucracy and a code of laws, all of which requires writing. The Sumerians had this first as cuneiform, which predates any other system of organized writing.

    Oh, that's another one for you, wsuwarrior, the Sumerians invented writing.

    Writing is no biggie either, huh? Lol. I guess the invention of law is also irrelevant. Certainly can't see how that applies to anyone living today. Since I and others have pointed out numerous modern inventors and you've dismissed all of them as irrelevant, you're going to have to share with us your personal definition of relevant, because I don't think any of us can figure out what that is for you. It's also entirely possible your definition of "modern" is unique only to you.

    No, but I am saying that it is pretty ignorant to try to argue that all of human Civilization arose from one source in one place.
