They did not apply the concept "zero" to its numerical system, hence the lack of symbol; so, they could not handle too big or too little numbers and operate with it.
Yes, they can; even the year we live in.

"Strong" ehr? So how strong was it during the enlightment?

You don't need big fakkin' math for an industrial revolution. Steam engines don't require math.

Nothing is a human concept; we start out with it.

Zero was NOT invented; it existed long before the Indians had their character for it. OURS comes from the arabic culture, not the Indians.

Shortly after some mathematicians started their work and made technology possible.
Basic tech didn't require math.

Not in any sense, and history proves so.

And yes, I will defend that position until you come with something convincing. No math was required for the revolution, and Romans are a bit weird suggestion to start with.
