THE IMPACT OF EGYPTIAN CIVILIZATION SUCCESS 2
The Impact of Egyptian Civilization Success on Theology, Culture and Innovation
The ability to adapt to conditions of the Valley of River Nile was part of the Egyptian
Civilization's success. The anticipated flooding and controlled water system of the rich valley
created surplus yields, which bolstered an increasingly dense populace, culture as well as
social development (Finneran, 2005). Armed with surplus resources, the government-
supported exploitation of minerals from the valley and regions surrounding the desert,
autonomous writing system development, agricultural projects and collective construction
organization, surrounding regions trade (Finneran, 2005), as well as a military planned to
affirm dominance of Egyptians. Organizing and propelling these exercises was an elite
scribes bureaucracy, religious leaders, as well as pharaoh controlled administrators, who
guaranteed the participation and solidarity of the people with regards to a complex religious
belief system.
Egypt's success led to the arrival of Alexander the Great, who changed the Egyptian
way of life. Egypt's knowledge of their glorious past was lost due to the mixture of Roman,
Greek, and Arabic cultures that killed Egypt's unique culture (Canadian Museum of History,
2001). The only thing that was left was the decaying monuments made of stone and the
hieroglyphics texts that remind them of the lost civilization. Once the Romans and the Greeks
conquered Egypt, the concept of religion changed completely. At first, they had deities
manifested in material items or just gods represented by an animal (Canadian Museum of
History, 2001). Religion in Egypt evolved with time, from small gods prayed in small regions
to a national wide god represented by the sun god. Currently, a significant percentage of
Egyptians are Muslims and a minority of Christians and Jews. Some may be taken for granted
in the modern day but were all invented in Egypt. Such products such as ink and paper,
toothpaste, and toothbrush as well as cosmetics and breath mint (Mark, 2016). They also
made advances in brewing beer, medicine, agriculture, and engineering.
