Up until 70 years ago or thereabouts most western historians and Egyptologists lavished praises on ancient Egypt for its accomplishments and contributions to Greece and therefore Western Civilization in science, mathematics, architecture, art, medicine, astronomy and the many elements of advanced civilization. 

For some reason all of that has changed during the last 70 years.  Without presenting a shred of evidence, contemporary historians and textbook publishers have demoted the accomplishments of ancient Egypt and denied their contributions to Greece and the world, and are now touting ancient Greece as the inventor of mathematics, and the modern scientific way of thinking that is responsible for today's advances in science. 

Were this just a matter of giving credit, the hype could be ignored, but unfortunately, the elements of ancient Greek culture has hampered the progress in western mathematics and science that has caused America to rank number 36 in the world in science and mathematics.

In Not Out of Greece, 2nd Edition, Ra Un Nefefer Amen fully analyzes the history and scientific works of Egypt and Greece to show the indebtedness of the latter to the former as well as what must be done to restore America to the top rank in mathematics and science.
