I took a course on the ancient Near East in college in which the professor made a statement that sticks with me to this day.  He said that, when the Greco-Roman world was exposed to the ancient knowledge of the Near East, they had the opportunity to adopt advanced mathematics, astronomy and scientific concepts.  What did they take away from the Near East?  Magic potions, advanced forms of augury, fortune telling and astrology.
