There is no one "Germany Wins WW1" that you can start diverging alternate history from. Depending on how Germany wins; you can branch off into all sorts of different scenarios.
A world in which
>Schlieffen plan is supplemented with a suicide cruise like Lisle Rose recommended, BEF is severely delayed, and the Germans spill over at the Marne (or the Marne never develops like it does historically), war ends in the western front in 1914 but with most if not...

Science believes that 20 billion years ago, nothing exploded, and became everything. And then 3.6 billion years ago, the Earth's surface cooled, and clouds formed from volcanic gasses and it caused rain. And then it rained on the rocks for billions of years and it formed a soup, and then the soup came alive, and formed the basis for all living things, including humans.
Science will teach you about how the eye, for instance, had to evolve slowly over billions of years, through trial... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This is quite an old idea found in some classic works like E.R. Dodd's 'The Greeks and The Irrational'
You really see Greek philosophy in a new light when you read it alongside Indian works from the same period.
>While scholars have sensed a philosophical kinship between Eastern and Western cultures for many decades, THE SHAPE OF ANCIENT THOUGHT is the first study to provide the empirical evidence. Covering a period ranging from 600 B.C. until the era of Neoplatonism and a geographical expanse reaching across the ancient world,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>509959 Start reading articles in academic journals. You'll find things you don't know about, have to research them for yourself, and likely have to do some further looking-up whilst doing that. Bibliography is key.
You need to know the scholarship if you're going to have anything interesting to say, even if it's only marginally original.
>>509905 Rousseau, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche think so, it's just that happiness is only a measure of chemical response in the brain and we can control that easily with drugs, as we can with the Will, so both Will and Happiness seem like insignificant things to base the worth of life on now that we know that.
>>509900 If you're looking for salvation, you just don't. If God is truly benevolent, then it would understand your skepticism and as long as you are a good person, you will rewarded. If it is not benevolent, it probably isn't worth worshiping in the first place.
The answer is subjective, there is no objective true religion so as long and you live for god, being to help fellow man that seems to be the most objective thing followed in most religions. If anything is the correct way to do things that's it.

So I think this is a cool time to make a thread about the history of the search for effective birth control throughout the ages. Was this a universal endeavor for every society? Feel free to post some great sources. I have a few from ancient Rome. For some reason placing some deer hide with spider worms on a woman was seen as effective according to Pliny the elder. Also smearing honey in a chick's vag by Soranus .
The protestants contacted the Orthodox Church in order to determine whether they might merge together, but the Orthodox felt the need to "correct" the protestants on some of their theology, which the protestants didn't take too kindly to.
Did the third world "Non-Aligned Movement" actually achieve anything of value during the Cold War or was it as completely irrelevant as today?
In principle the idea of poorer nations banding together to protect themselves from the ambitions of the Western block and the Soviets seems pretty cool... but they didn't actually achieve anything did they?
>>509014 They ultimately failed in most cases to protect against the influences they sought to reject. Especially in Latin America and Africa, there were tons of superpower-backed revolutions, coups, and upheavals that there was little international cooperation to combat.
That being said, there were a few nations like Yugoslavia, Egypt, Syria, etc who played off both sides for their own benefit.
