“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent.”

I was always wondered, how Western civilization would be now if we had all records and art from Greece and Rome?
Maybe they could avoid dark ages?
I think that the influence of Dark Ages is still here.

It's hard to say. There are alot of Historians that would argue that the Dark Ages is a bad way to describe a period in History where the world was undergoing radical transformation at fundamental levels in terms of agriculture and industry.

In some parts of the world yes, things were done differently. The East suffered no such slowdown :)
