What really happened to the Library of Alexandria? - Elizabeth Cox

Check out our Patreon page:

View full lesson:

2,300 years ago, the rulers of Alexandria set out to fulfill a very audacious goal: to collect all the knowledge in the world under one roof. In its prime, the Library of Alexandria housed an unprecedented number of scrolls and attracted some of the Greek world’s greatest minds. But by the end of the 5th century CE, it had vanished. Elizabeth Cox details the rise and fall of this great building.

Lesson by Elizabeth Cox, directed by Inna Phillimore.

The Library of Alexandria - The Crime That Set Human Civilization Back 1,000 Years

The burning of the Library of Alexandria in Ancient Egypt ranks among the worst crimes committed against humanity in known history. Lost scientific research including physics and anatomy and medicine, as well as knowledge and documentation of culture and history is widely believed to have set human civilization back significantly. Carl Sagan himself stated that the burning of the library of Alexandria likely set humanity back 1,000 years.

The library of Alexandria was located in Alexandria Egypt. It was one of the biggest and most important libraries in the world. It was the focal point of knowledge and learning during ancient times. It’s a common belief that the library of Alexandria was destroyed once, but that is actually false. The library gradually deteriorated over the course of hundreds of years. But regardless of how long it took to actually destroy the library completely, there are those who believe that ancient knowledge and artifacts could have been destroyed during its demise. So what if the library of Alexandria was never destroyed? That’s the question we’re asking right now on life’s biggest questions.

a mini-series on the missing millennium of Ancient past, First thing is to get the story on the conflict, (because there is always a conflict in everything) with what year it is really, it seems some Benedictine Monks were monkeying with the chronological timeline.Also, that the reformation and inquisition were hidden behind religious reasons but were really carried out to suppress knowledge & events and get rid of all of the books & writings contrary to their dogmatic belief system of control they were usurping the powers that be and implementing themselves in control of the people.Part 2 will deal with the book of Veles and the scattered ones of Atlantis. Why Monks and not historians were in charge of this I can only guess. So it is possible this year may really be 1017? Hmm, Fair use, full credit to sources shown below.

FYICorrection - I think I used the wrong photograph of Jean Hardouin, it was of Jules Hardouin the architect but they look very similar. I'm thinking they must have been related. Also, the young lady in the NewEarth video is named Silvie, I said Silvia many apologies, I know it isn't going to matter this only applies to the haters but, it really serves no purpose to hurl insults that didn't come until this video got 20k views so I wonder where that would come from & why? My advice would be to make a video and let me know and I'll watch it and give the same courtesy to you, nobody drug you in here but, if you wish to leave constructive criticism that's fine just use some couth, thanks.

The Humans That Lived Before Us

As more and more fossil ancestors have been found, our genus has become more and more inclusive, incorporating more members that look less like us, Homo sapiens. By getting to know these other hominins--the ones who came before us--we can start to answer some big questions about what it essentially means to be human.

Library of Alexandria

The Royal Library of Alexandria or Ancient Library of Alexandria in Alexandria, Egypt, was one of the largest and most significant libraries of the ancient world. It was dedicated to the Muses, the nine goddesses of the arts. It flourished under the patronage of the Ptolemaic dynasty and functioned as a major center of scholarship from its construction in the 3rd century BC until the Roman conquest of Egypt in 30 BC, with collections of works, lecture halls, meeting rooms, and gardens. The library was part of a larger research institution called the Musaeum of Alexandria, where many of the most famous thinkers of the ancient world studied.

The library was created by Ptolemy I Soter, who was a Macedonian general and the successor of Alexander the Great. Most of the books were kept as papyrus scrolls. It is unknown precisely how many such scrolls were housed at any given time, but estimates range from 40,000 to 400,000 at its height.

Arguably, this library is most famous for having been burned down resulting in the loss of many scrolls and books; its destruction has become a symbol for the loss of cultural knowledge. Sources differ on who was responsible for its destruction and when it occurred. The library may in truth have suffered several fires over many years. Possible occasions for the partial or complete destruction of the Library of Alexandria include a fire set by the army of Julius Caesar in 48 BC and an attack by Aurelian in the 270s AD.

After the main library was destroyed, scholars used a daughter library in a temple known as the Serapeum, located in another part of the city. According to Socrates of Constantinople, Coptic Pope Theophilus destroyed the Serapeum in AD 391, although it is not certain what it contained or if it contained any significant fraction of the documents that were in the main library. The library may have finally been destroyed during the Muslim conquest of Egypt in (or after) AD 642.

10 Things That Will Happen When Humans Go Extinct

What will the Earth be like when humans go extinct??
Subscribe to our channel:

This topic is rather morbid, but we do have a wild fascination for theories as to how our world could end. We have been taught for years that everything that begins must have an ending, and considering how long Earth has been around, the clock is ticking for our home planet. And because we are more fascinated by how things will end than just accepting our inevitable demise, hundreds of theories have emerged in order to try to hypothesize and make sense of it all. Just as the dinosaurs are extinct, everyone wonders for a period of time (or two) just how far away humanity is from extinction, and just how it will happen. Some of the theories are fairly peaceful, but there are others that are truly terrifying. Here are some of the most devastating ways that humanity could end.
The first theory is pretty real since we are in the midst of it; global warming. The years 2005 and 2010 were the warmest years compared to the previous century, and the result of global warming is bizarre climate change. With the funky seasons and weather conditions that have plagued us in the 21st century, one has to wonder if maybe we’ve gone too far with our pollution and are on our way to meet our end because of our own foolish actions. The next theory is death by asteroid, which is pretty scary considering that we don’t have much control over the course of massive rocks that could hit our planet at any moment. Our Earth and Moon have been hit with asteroids before, which is speculated as to that was what killed the dinosaurs.
The next thing that could wipe out humanity is a pandemic. With the Ebola scare, and other unknown illnesses that are killing people left and right, it is rather easy to spread a massive virus and do some population control. While vaccines are being perfected every day, they have to be updated annually because viruses and diseases are constantly adapting and evolving. That is scary in of itself right there. Speaking of illnesses, there has even been several rumors that the government is working on mind-control viruses as a biological weapon, thus setting off a zombie apocalypse. But let us not forget that we can also literally kill ourselves with nuclear war. With governments of various countries constantly pointing weapons at each other with veiled threats (for now), it’s only a matter of time before one side starts firing and sets off a rapid fire exchange of nuclear weapons, thus killing millions and setting off a nuclear winter that could last for years.
The next thing that could kill humanity is something that you are using right at this very moment; your computer. Computers are being used in almost every aspect of everyday life from work, to home, medical facilities, shopping, dining, and more. What would happen if computers would ever become aware? It’s not like there is anything that humanity could give back to them in order to survive.
From Mother Nature to our own hand, there are so many devastating ways that humanity could end. The question and mystery that remains is the how.
