Sadly, he has a point. There are definite crusaders on the English Language
wikipedia, trying to keep it from acknowledging outside of europe influences.
Check the talk page for the list of oldest universities in the world.
Or check the article on Catalan Numbers. There is a sentence that baldly
claims Catalan Numbers were "invented here", and then there is a weasel
worded statement noting that evidence exists that Chinese Mathematicians
knew and used them.
