    I used "first," which I think is a relevant qualifier.

    in the post I originaly reacted to you used "all", As in claimming that all of human Civilization came from one area. Demonstrably false.

    Yes, it is my right to say what came first. So unless you can counter my claim about where the FIRST civilizations sprung up, you can quit with the straw men.

    You claimed all human Civilization came from there. Try understanding what you write before you post it.

    My exact post:

    "All of the first nation/state or town/state civilizations sprung up throughout the Fertile Crescent (Eridu in Sumeria was the first known city). I have, however, read accounts that the first glimmerings of civilization stirred in southern Turkey. Shrug. But it was the Egyptians who first made civilization cool."

    Try understanding what you read before you respond to it.

It's also entirely possible your definition of "modern" is unique only to you.
    You are not allowed to move the goalposts. When I talked about modern inventions I wasnt talking about things "invented" 10,000 years ago. No one rational would think 10,000 years ago is modern when talking about inventions.

    Duh.

    Clearly define your parameters. What is "modern," and what is "relevant?" Be specific.
