Abstract:This article acknowledges that Africa is the progenitor of humanity and world civilization. It postulates that early Christianity is a product of African religious ideas, thoroughly reworked and perfected in early Egypt, and appropriated by the Europe of antiquity. Furthermore, the article exposes the myths perpetuated by Western imperialist historiography, which has caused Western writers and their fans to regard the West as the chief architect of world civilization, with roots in the 'Greek miracle'.
