Ancient Civilization(Ancient Egypt, Persia, Greece, Rome, etc.) vs Present Civilization?
Persia, because it freed slaves from the lands that it conquered unlike the Greeks who did the exact opposite. They also had the first declaration of human rights. During that time achievements such as these were a giant step for mankind.
What's civilization is older Ancient Rome or Ancient Greece or Ancient Egypt?
Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome go in that order.
Why did ancient civilizations like Egypt, Rome, and Greece fail to maintain prosperity?
All empires and states that were once powerful fail eventually or at least transform into a less powerful entity. In the majority of cases the problems are internal. The Romans had a very unstable political class and succession crises marked the last 250 years of the Western Roman Empire (although not limited to that period; political turmoil was a concern as soon as the Romans became a regional power) and for the entire history of the Eastern Roman Empire.The Greeks were rarely united for a common case, mostly fighting each other with the rare exceptions involving Persian invasions. As a result of that the Macedonians were able to overpower most Greek city states and establish a large but short lived empire that fragmented really fast after the the death of Alexander the Great into Hellenistic states that were almost always at war with each other until the Romans subjugated almost all of them (almost all because the Romans never had a claim on Bactria for instance).Egypt was a regional power for thousands of years until 525 BC when the Persians finally conquered them. But in the meantime they had long periods of time when they were in a very anarchic states while between the dynasties and between the 3 kingdoms. Most of that was due to internal strife combined with environmental issues and external pressure.There were other empires like the Sumerian, Akkadian, Hittite, Assyrian, Babylonian, maybe even Phoenician if you think about Carthage that were done under by other powers invading them after they themselves invaded others.Every single power that peaked more than 100 years ago ended up being very weak and even occupied by other powers eventually. It is always part internal political or social strife, part economic and part military that they get taken over by newer more efficient and more hungry Empires
Were ancient civilizations (Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, etc) more technologically advanced in comparison to today’s Arab countries?
The answer is no, by any means. Practically every country today (and even two hundred years ago) is more civilized than the Romans were at their peak. But it does bring an important question.How do you see civilization? What is its most important achievement? Technology? Art? Social advancements? Infrastructure? It depends on what you mean.Technologically speaking, ancient civilizations weren’t even as advanced as a good city in the middle ages.But, when we look at the middle ages, there was better technology and war techniques and perhaps culture at the elite level, but there was an immense lack of infrastructure. In fact, a lot of the Middle Ages seem terrible to us because they were still using the already centuries-old infrastructure of the Romans, but didn’t keep knowledge on how to improve it, so they didn’t know how to make more. With the fall of the Roman Empire’s central government and infrastructure planning, a lot of their construction techniques and advanced planning quite literally were lost.A lot of the Roman infrastructure is amazing to this day. And in fact, ancient Roman Concrete Is About to Revolutionize Modern Architecture, because only in 2013, after much trial and error, we reverse-engineered the formula to create that same cement they used for their infrastructure.Roads, acqueducts, temples. All were built with Roman cement and all last incredible spans of time.Roman concrete was cheap and easy to make. They were able to manually produce so much so cheaply, that they paved a lot of roads, built water infrastructure that served millions - to such an extent that arguably the middle ages can be seen to end and the Renaissance begin just as people in Europe start embarking on large scale infrastructure projects for the common man again. It is hard to overstate how much proper infrastructure can change peoples’ lives.So the story of “civilization” is actually two parallel stories - technology and infrastructure.If you have the first without the second, huge inequality and poverty follows, so there’s a civilized elite but overall you are considered very uncivilized.If you have the second without the first, daily life may be difficult, but you can bathe with clean water from miles away, you can go to a theater which you can get to on a road, smell the flowers and write poetry, and are “civilized”.And that’s why there’s a term in war - “Bomb them back to the stone age”, when you blow up all the country’s infrastructure.

Most advanced civilization - Greeks, Romans, Byzantines?
None of them are the most advanced. The Indian (Asian India) civilisation and the Chinese civilisation are 10x older than these wannabes. India's first civilisation was 9000 years ago, or 7000bc. But if you are referring out of the 3 u selected then it's the Greeks because many of the Roman's beliefs were based on the Greeks, they are basically thieves
What makes Ancient Egypt better than Ancient Greece and Rome?
Based on what do you think that Pyramid architecture is better than the Parthenon?? I guess you simply don't know much about Egypt. If you knew you would never compare it to Greece or Rome. They were by far more advanced. Egypt was a dark empire, with human sacrifices, no culture whatsoever.
