So who really built the box and why? Islamist say Abraham built it but it seems there is no evidence to prove that claim.
prove me wrong
ITT we talk about unsolved mystories.
Who's the young man with Raphael ?
here's a better unsolved mystery: why were the vikings literally unstoppable?
I want to study religions as much as I possibly can.
Is pic related a good way to start? How many faiths is it missing?
ITT we post interesting /his/-related things in your town. They can be graves, museums, locations, plaques, etc.
I'll start with a couple of locations from my own home city. Pic related: Old Calton Burial Ground, Edinburgh. The round building is David Hume's tomb, and the statue of Lincoln is a memorial to Scottish soldiers who fought for the Union in the Civil War. It was the first statue of a US president outside the USA.
Waverly Station, Edinburgh's rail hub. It is the only railway station in Britain, and possibly the world, to be named for a fictional character, Sir Walter Scott's 'Waverly'.
A wee bit outside Edinburgh, but Scotland is so small we might as well not care - the house on Kirkcaldy where Adam Smith wrote 'The Wealth of Nations'.
The causeway out to Cramond Island. The island formed part of Edinburgh's naval defences in the WW2. You can visit the island by walking across the causeway at low tide, but you need to get back before high tide or you'll be stranded. The large concrete spikes to the right were built during the war to stop submarines or shallow-draft vessels infiltrating past the island at high-tide.
>National Socialism and any other form of conservative revolution was a false revolution, or at least a completely inauthentic political movement, because it wasn't Communist
Why do so many people parrot this garbage, as if the only way a movement can be 'authentic' is if it abides by a set of principles nobody outside the Ivory Tower cares about? Zizek always says this.
I laugh every time people try to use the dictionary strawman of Fascism, as it is a one size fits everything.
When in reality, Peroism, National Socialism, Francoism, and Fascism are all very different things.
I would define fascism as "for the health and well being of the people".
As in capability, not equality, not liberty.

>HURR WE GO TO DA VILLAGE WITH MUH BITCH AND THERE IS 30 SOLDIERS AND WE ARE UNHARMED AND WE WON AND ODIN XDD
it's Amon Amarth: The Show
When did the Wagnerian romanticism go over the top, with people actually believing in romanticised pictures of pillaging seafaring peasants dominating the history of Europe in the early Middle Ages.
people are tired of 'muh epic vikings' shit that is being pushed everywhere.
Now that the dust has settled, do we know whether water is H_2O ?
what are other breakthroughs of logical positivism and other analytical schools ?
Logical positivism is stupid and dead.
However science is pretty great because scientific truth is determined by something outside of humans so there can't be any disagreement.
where were you when a muslim btfo the entirety of christianity in just 30 mins?
I read Zealot, it's full of inaccuracies even if the general message is correct.
Also considering Islam considers Jesus to be a prophet of God and his mom a virgin I don't get how this fucker can call himself a muslim.
>Also considering Islam considers Jesus to be a prophet of God and his mom a virgin I don't get how this fucker can call himself a muslim.
They also consider Moses to be a prophet of God, but that doesn't make them Jewish.
In order to be a Christian you need to believe that Jesus IS god.

are these easily histories most overrated warriors? If so, who are the most underrated warriors of history?
Is there any book that covers the history of Russia? From the czars to the cold war, all those countries affected by the revolution and communism, specially Romania and Czech Republic. Also episodes like Holodomor and Nikolai Yezhov.
I'd appreciate any recommendations, thanks.
I never saw threads about the Holodomor. It's obviously less marketed in world, so people feel less inclined to talk about it or deny it.
I met Russians who would often scoff at it and call it Ukrainian lies.
>Sikh bodyguards kill Hindu prime minister
>Hindus start a pogrom of Sikhs, government turns a blind eye
>Only 3000 die
How is it that something this inflammatory and religiously charged occuring in a non-1st world country could only result in 3000 deaths?
Is something like this really not enough to trigger a full-blown genocide?
Just a guess but Sikhs likely would have defended themselves.
Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
"To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his Gods."
Whoever is a Serb and of Serb birth,
And of Serb blood and heritage,
And comes not to fight at Kosovo,
May he never have progeny born from love,
Neither son nor daughter!
May nothing grow that his hand sows,
Neither young wine nor white wheat!
And may he be dying in filth as long as his children are alive!
