Martin Bernal's Afrocentrism
The lecturer says that the idea of Afrocentntrism by Marin Bernal is absurd and less convincing. This contracts the reading passage's main thoughts claimed by Martin Bernal, who insisted that Greek legacies are largely indebted to that of Africa and Asia.
Firstly, the lecturer argues that there is no adequate archeological evidence for Africa's colonization over Greece. Furthermore, what Bernal suggests as the prove of the colonization contradicts each other. It is true that the architectural style or the alphabet letters that Greeks created in ancient time partially referenced on that of Egypt, but the process must have been done in peaceful ways. This goes against with the reading passage's idea that Africa once took forceful dominance over Greece.
Second, the lecturer says that the philosophical traits of Greek are so unique and unprecedented. To be specific, they focus on nature rather than supernatural divine. Also, Greek made their own alphabet letters in 7 BC, which was earlier era than the time Egyptian created their own. This refutes the reading passage's idea that the philosophical works Greeks have been celebrated was merely a copied wholesome of the Egyptian works.
Third, the lecturer points out that there is no possibility about a few racist scholars intentionally spread out white European-based ancient history in the last 20 century. This is due to the fact that massive studies on Greek culture and history were done during the time, so we got to knew more about Greek than actual Greek people did about themselves. This contradicts the reading passage's idea that bias historians destroyed the tradition of Afro-Asiatic culture.
