Hmm this thread is hard to vote on because it is so generic. so i am going to say the romans. because their empire lasted 1000 year. but their descendants also started empires. so the romans by far.

I'm not saying it wouldn't happen but you are diminishing them to some irrelevant civilization that accomplished a lot for being isolated geographically and evolving much faster than their European counter parts in the same era of their time.
When they were discovered they were in fatal decline, and were still many centuries behind the civilization that discovered them. That's why my argument is that they didn't make any lasting contribution to the progression of humanity.

Well, I'm more into the classics like Rolls Royce, Jaguar, Mercedes etc. However, they're not quite as popular these days with the younger folk (at least I don't think they are) - so I'd be interested to know what the dream car would be for the average 20 somethings of this generation. If money was of no concern.

Your still not making a great case against them. You are arguing a hypothetical as fact stating that they would have declined and disappeared in the time you set, which is just opinion.

Second, the fact that they did not contribute to anything in Europe is irrelevant. You don't just judge a civilization based on comparison but comparison to other cultures in the same time frame.

When Europeans were in their stone age, they were no where near as advanced as the ancient Mexicans and South Americans. You are talking about people who had advancements in mathematics, agriculture and engineering. Yes they were savage in many respects but some might even argue that the elite class used religion and those beliefs to control the population and not necessarily believe it themselves.
