What Nordic Civilization?
« on: August 03, 2017, 09:22:06 PM »
Middle East, Sumeria. Mediterranean, Ancient Greece. Southern Italy, Romans. Northern Africa, Ancient Egypt and Carthage. Western Asia, Persians. South Asia, Indian civilization. East Asia, Chinese civilization. Vietnam, Dong Son. Cambodia, Khmer empire. Indonesia, Surya. Americas, Aztec, Incas, and Maya.

What about Scandinavia? I don't think Vikings were great civilizations.

Nordic includes Finland, which is distinct in culture from the other Scandinavian countries. Also, Scandinavians are just one branch of Germanic culture.  Germanic culture itself is also very new and includes all the rich Northwestern European countries but its civilizational foundation is Latin and Christianity.  Civilization is really hard to get started.  That is why the Sinosphere is a civilization sphere with a bunch of cultures within it.  Vietnamese words for law, medicine and philosophy all came from China, same with Korea and Japan.  Vietnamese use of the same Chinese deprived word sounds different from the same Chinese deprived word in Japanese.  For example, my first name in Vietnamese is Quoc, which stands for nation or country.  In Korean it sounds like "goo ga" and Japanese "koo ka" and in Chinese "kook" but in Vietnamese pronounces like "Ku oc." So yes, Chinese is not a culture but a civilization.

Didn’t you read my post about Vietnamese genetic transformation? We were Chinese before we transformed into Vietnamese. That explains our Chinese-derived names.

Not it does not explain it.  Culture is far more influential then genetics.  As a conqueror you cannot entirely decimate old enemy (not 1000 years ago at least) but you can culturally destroy them.   Genetics describes what potentially happened but does not prove anything.
