>Europe was, is and continues to be the eternal center of humans
Europe was a mouthbreathing redneck backwater for thousands of years. During the bronze age, writing developed in the middle east, india, china, and south america. Europeans didn't even have writing until the romans forced them to learn Latin. THE ROMANS (who learned to write from greeks, who learned to write from middle easterners). Shortly after thereupon, the entirety of Europe (bar England) being raped by Huns, Mongols, Moors... and even after that violent period of darkness (where history is lost because European barbarians were fucking illiterate), well into the late middle ages and the renaissance, the majority of people in Europe were still illiterate slaves.
I guess it depends on what you mean by "eternal center of humans". If you mean the center of rape, pillage, recurring disaster and an absolute blender for cultures... then yes it's a rather befitting description.
