Greeks ‘borrowed Egyptian numbers’

By Paul Rincon
BBC Science

The astronomers, physicists and mathematicians of ancient Greece were true innovators.

But one thing it seems the ancient Greeks did not invent was the counting system on which many of their greatest thinkers based their pioneering calculations. New research suggests the Greeks borrowed their system known as alphabetic numerals from the Egyptians, and did not develop it themselves as was long believed.

Greek alphabetic numerals were favoured by the mathematician and physicist Archimedes, the scientific philosopher Aristotle and the mathematician Euclid, amongst others.

Trade explosion

An analysis by Dr Stephen Chrisomalis of McGill University in Montreal, Canada, showed striking similarities between Greek alphabetic numerals and Egyptian demotic numerals, used in Egypt from the late 8th Century BC until around AD 450.

Both systems use nine signs in each “base” so that individual units are counted 1-9, tens are counted 10-90 and so on. Both systems also lack a symbol for zero.

Dr Chrisomalis proposes that an explosion in trade between Greece and Egypt after 600 BC led to the system being adopted by the Greeks.

Greek merchants may have seen the demotic system in use in Egypt and adapted it for their own purposes.

  1. BLACK TO THE FUTURE,CAGOTS on their way out taking their lies wit them.The Black gene can create BLACK just like the creator that made us in their image brown,red,yellow the lightest, then you have the outcast cursed to be white as snow.The original had to be black in color a hue.All things started Black just like creation. The apple don’t fall far from the tree,but mutant albinos came from a different tree.We are the original created, not made up. It’s too late for so-called whites to get it together,we have always had that priviledge we are the real that the creator gave the earth to,all these misconceptions will be corrected,his-story will be corrected.Our HUEMAN children will be the inheirtors of the land only we can pass down through the family.Knowledge is power.2013 year 1, we had B.C AND A.D that’s when the Cagots STOLE OUR BIRTHRIGHT so 2013 must be B.B the year BACK BLACK Or should it be Fear of a BLACK nation is here. But we must be willin to kill to regain our lands and knowledge for our greatest treasure,our only treasure, our seed,and inheritor of this world.Our civilizations spanded 6000 years,all along the whites were in the caves.In less than 500 years those mutants have destroyed our motherland and mother’s children with their CAGOT lies & philosophy gathered from a non melanined mind.We knew then what we know now.We can never live in harmony with a non-HUEMAN.TOO EVIL.Satan is their father,they have no mother, at least we won’t be claiming them. But no worry the battle has already been won,mother nature is getting them pay back for Katrina & Rita, the only thing Jah true chillin’ can do is get out the way our mother is helping us out sending a warning via Afrika.She travels the same path as the ships that the CAGOTS brought our people over here,that was a blessing us Indians, MOORS, were damn near wiped out by the disease of leprosy.Cursed white as snow,frequent visits from masser. Our Black enriched brothers & Sisters put the black back in us,curing the disease of leprosy our cave dwellers tried to inflict on the true children of the creator.They know we taught them and saved them since we first laid eyes on them.nOW THE TIDES ARE TURNING the lands they stole are cursed,the lies are out.How they set themselves up to be us the creators children created not made.Peace only for ourselves me say war.

    1. Are you blaming outsiders for Congo being a charnel house?

      Or the anarchy in Somalia?

      The genocides in Sierra Leone and Liberia?

      Seriously?

  2. Just so we are clear here. If there were no black people white people wouldn’t exist. All white people are born abominations aka freaks of nature. You are the recessive genes of black people. This is why scientists use albino rats to test drugs on because it closely matches your genetic make up. The very people no one wants to give a place in this world are responsible for your very existence. We need to stop hating one another and reach out to everyone. No one needs to talk of killing. Only God can free an enslaved mind not us. We just need to keep telling the truth.

  3. “Time is the Space between” Black and White, and Time is cyclical. As our Father Sun heats up, where will the inheritors of our melanocytes, but not our melanin take refuge? Back to their caves? If we’re allowed to stick around we may be lucky enough to observe the Neotenous aspects of creation.

  4. Classical civilization collapsed because it did not invent the experimental model. Had they conducted scientific observations with single variables they probably would have continued undisturbed to get to the moon 500 years ago. Experiments that could be considered modern really only got going 500 hundred years ago, largely in France, Italy and England. Most of classical civilization required slaves. Modern civiliations are different in that they use machines. Arguing about the authorship of Aristotle and Plato is like arguing about the authorship of Augustine or St Paul.

    It describes another bygone era.

  5. Excuse me, but does anyone recall a rather controversial documenary a few years ago which aired in the U.S. that stirred up the racist riff because the advertisement for the program claimed that the genetic ‘Mother’ of all current populations was a black woman?
    A salient point was that the genome project ‘proved’ that we all decended from a bottleneck population of around only 4 thousand Africans, after a large extinction event approximately 75 thousand years ago. I can’t recall exactly if the program indicated that these last humans were in Ethiopia or Nigeria.

    One point of the story claimed that archeological evidence suggested that the remaining human population of 4000 split up to various points of the compass. The demographic climate changes eventually caused genetic evolutions which permanently changed pigmentation in the skin and eventually accounted for the European-Nordic white, and asian populations we have today. Those that remained in Africa maintained the original skin pigmentation.

    Needless to say the racist redneck bigot crowd went wild over the program, and it was never aired subsequently to its original presentation. And everyone went about their usually delusional business. You can take the cognitively decedent to the well of life giving enlightenment…but you can’t make them drink.

  6. Why are you trying to deny the Egyptians civilisation their rightful place in history. The Egyptians laid the foundation for the future science, computer, internet technology satelite and radio. If this is not true, then WHY are they still digging in the sands of Egypt to this day an forever.
