I never accussed you of making the claim that land trade routes did not exist. I just don't see how you are able to measure these things in a way to draw such a strong conclusion in favor of water transport.I did not say that land trade routes did not exist. I said they played little if any role in development of civilisations and empires. And that is easy to find out just by looking at geography of those empires.
And you are stating bald and downright incorrect opinion in this claim that land routes did not lead to the development of civilizations.
