@TylerDurden That's reasonable. I've edited it.

comment Why did Christianity disappear in North-Western Africa?
I think you are probably right, but a source would greatly add to the quality of this answer.

This is not true. The Bible does not mention that either son went one way or the other. It also does not mention any particular race came from any son. Also, I think you ignored my question. You didn't even look at the history of this Anthropological idea. That is the heart of the question, "What is the history of this idea?"

@NickStauner I did find this, but couldn't seem to find any practical advice for my particular question: Is Sociology on topic?

@NickStauner Okay, well, let's see how the rest of the community feels, then, if it is closed, I'll post there, but I would really love an answer from an anthropologist not a general historian.

I agree with you, but you answered the question from an economist's standpoint, not an historian's. If you take a peek at the selected answer you will see that the earliest source we could find for this quote was over 100 years after Rothschild's death. Unless someone finds something else, I actually have no reason to believe that the quote originated with Rothschild.

comment Is every major culture in the same year?
"how did the Europeans come to have such a strong influence over the entire planet, even over countries such as China?" Would you like a volume of books? because that's how long a decent answer would have to be. Essentially, it all boils down to European colonization from 1500 to 1800. Mostly English colonization, but the French, Spanish, and Portuguese had the same kind of influence over the world, just to a lesser extent.
