    All ancient civilizations were developed in the _South_. It wasn't until after the collapse of Rome there were any Northern ones.

    Could the fact that only 33 % of the Southern Hemisphere is land and a large portion of the land is in Antarctica? As opposed to the Northern hemisphere having 67% of the land.

    we removed the Power of the Roman Catholic Church thanks to Henry V111 by Elizabeth 1 time were Not required to go to church without being abused with hellfire and damnation we had time to Think and Invent the Germans made the First car and a few years late the British made the Best car the Germans built the First Jet engined aircraft the British made it better the germans Built the best tank the Tiger the Americans and the British made a tank Killer the Sherman Firefly all done without church interference

    if the Church was involved the UK Canada and the USA would have never Built the First Nukes

    the Germans under Hitler could have beat us but the Dictator lost interest the Cult leader said No to a heavy Bomber the Lancaster destroyed Germany as did the B17 and the B29 where Hitler only built 2 heavy bombers he needed 5000 to beat the USSR

    Recommend Jared Diamond's Pulitzer Prize book "Guns, Germs, and Steel". It explains the haves and have nots of the civilizations of the world.

    They weren't. You just cannot be bothered to find out about the ones that were in the Southern Hemisphere. While it is true that there are more land masses in the north it is not true that "almost all" ancient civilisations developed in the north.

    There's less land in the Southern Hemisphere, by a long way, however there are certainly forgotten civilisations, the BBC done a couple of interesting series called "Lost Kingdoms"...of Africa and South America. One of the interesting facts to learn is not all civilisations were hierarchical, another interesting fact is a huge Amazonian civilisation may have been completely wiped out by a single voyage of European explorers who spread debilitating diseases which natives had no immunity to.

    Like Liar said, there's simply more land in the north for peoples to have settled and developed.

     

    But your statement is actually not terribly factual.  Central and Southern Africa has played host to a wide number of civilizations who were revolutionary for their architectures and exploration.  South America was obviously far, far more advanced than the nomadic tribes of the north.

     

    Australia was just so cut off that the peoples there never had any exposure beyond their own culture.  Peoples don't thrive when they're unchallenged.

    Nearly 70% of all land on Earth is in the northern hemisphere.
