Right...because after Rome fell we never saw the like again anywhere else in the world. No empire ever sought to emulate their architecture, their governing principals or their academic knowledge.
Rome and Atlantis, both lost to the ages.
Thank you for putting words in my mouth that I didn't say. As I said above, I'm aware of the impact that the Roman Empire had -- only an idiot would try to argue what you're trying to claim I am.
As I said in one of my first posts in this argument, you're sweeping away whole swaths of history simply because they don't fit into your theory and you seem to be treating these historic places as if they're meaningless. I've already mentioned that The areas in Timbuktu where the writings from the University of Timbuktu are now UNESCO World Heritage sites. As you can see in the post where I mentioned that, there's a reason for that, the writings are still considered to have great value to scholars. The reason for that is that they improved and advanced numerous subject including Mathematics and astronomy.
The Empire of Mali had an impact on today's world, not as much as Rome did, but it still had an impact. It still has a meaning which you seem to be denying it has.
