The Origins of Civilization - Egypt

A great documentary about Ancient Egypt that confirms that it was the birthplace of modern civilization, more than 5000 years ago. This documentary supports many of Dr. Walter Williams claims in regard to Egypts influence in the founding of Christianity and Islam. We humans have been on the Earth for more than a million years, but civilization -- life in cities -- has come about only in the last 5,000. Through history civilizations have rose and fell, carved out of nature, dependent on nature, in the end -- nature took them back. But in the past few hundred years, one form of civilization -- that of the West -- has changed the balance of nature forever. And now it is civilization itself that has become the central problem of our planet. To understand why, we must look afresh at how we see history.
