Geographic Determinism: The shape and location of continents, flora, fauna, microbes, water, climate, topography determine history: Civilizations benefit because human populations with an east-west orientation (east-west) have a more consistent climate than those with a north-south orientation (Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies, Jared M. Diamond).
No, it cannot.
Civilizations benefit because God and the House of Rothschild so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son to the human populations with an east-west orientation, that whosoever believeth in him shall not have to obey the laws of nature.
Original sin entered the world when man went from trying to survive, to trying to justify his existence. "Cogito, ergo sum", less ambiguously translated: “I am thinking, therefore I exist", which is the foundation of Western philosophy.
