Alexandros, there is no doubt that science and ideas had periods of escalation in the aforementioned locales, with the suspicious being Arabia and South America. South American countries that were later inhabited by the European descendants and Jewish diaspora brought their knowledge and abilities with them. The Arabs like to own all sorts of scientific achievements that are questionable. It is also evident by your assessments that the barbarism was committed by 'mainly' caucasoid Christianity in the form of the crusades with the exception of a brief mention of the Mongoloid invasions. This does smack of racism. The crusades were attributed to the church of Rome with strong political influences. I'll use the word church lightly, here, because this is an adulterated corrupted version of true Christianity. Their intents were to take over Jerusalem, just as the Arabs and counterfeiters are doing today. It is this same church of Rome that accused the Jews of murdering Jesus, whereby it was actually Rome that physically tortured and murdered Him. Hypocrites! The high priest et al. released Him over to them. Rampant anti-semitism then and now, including church replacement theology of the present age. But no one had the authority or ability to kill Jesus since He laid down His own life by His own will. Since He is God, and the potter, He has the prerogative of determining what race of people he places His "choseness" upon. He has the prerogative of blessing with certain capabilities of whom He will. He has the prerogative of inspiring with knowledge and understanding what group of people He determines shall bring forth the oracles and truth to the lost gentiles, and all families of the earth shall be blessed by his chosen. He also has the prerogative of exponentially elevating the countries of the United States and Israel with scientific achievements well beyond any achieved at any period in time, as long as they elevate Him above all the falsities and corruptness of the wood and stone and human gods of these other nations. As He allows the rain to fall on the godly along with the wicked, so shall He allow the judgements to fall on a nation because of the wicked. All cultures are not equal, nor do they move the people forward.
