Haha stay deluded, sheeple
I don't see why people have a hard time accepting that a historical Jesus would most likely look like this rather than as some germanian or a sub-saharan African
Historical accuracy scares Christians.
Take for example that fact that all historians can agree on is that Jesus was baptised and crucified.
How does this make you feel /his/?

Between 800bce and 500bce the Greeks develop hoplite tactics based around tight formations of spear and shield armed infantry. Hoplite tactics proves to be really effective against the forces and soldiers of the Persian Empire and so the Greeks were able to repulse the Persian assaults. The Persians never got around to adopting these tactics on their own barring a few Hellanics in eastern Anatolia or adjusting their tactics and gear to deal with them. Hoplite tactics would continue to be incrementally refined over the next 150 years by the greeks and latter the macedonians....

Which is of course, why say, Xenophon's troops stuck around and conquered the entire Persian Empire instead of trying to make a run for it back to Greece and fighting (usually but not always sucessfully) their way back to the black sea coast.
I mean, that Hoplite advantage was all they needed ,right?
I don't see your point. Nobody intelligent disregards the fact that Alexander inherited a unique state and a unique army from his father and that his accomplishments are due primarily to what he was working with. This seems like a strawman.
Why is there something instead of nothing?
ITT: We talk about the greatest empire in history.
So, is it true? Could the Native Americans have banded together and kicked out the white devil?
I'm sure if reports came that native savages ransacked colonizers, the colonizers would send actual military to dispose of them
but if the natives were successful, the colonizers and would-be colonized would form a shaky pact.
I'm not sure if they'd be the super power they are today, but the native americans would be a global force nonetheless, should they survive
Unlikely but maybe, however it really doesn't matter, the natives hated each other and would've never been able to join together enough to chase the colonists out. If they did manage to chase the Euros away I'm not so sure that they could have become massively important nations but they definitely wouldn't be anything insignificant
Where does nobility come from? Do they spawn from and eventually return to the plebeian masses? Are they part of bloodlines that have been around for hundreds if not thousands of years? Are they genetically superior to "normal" people, or were they just in the right place at the right time and it carried on from there?
Each civilisation's nobility forms at its beginning.
Western nobility formed around the 10th century, though new families joined it throughout history. Nobody can trace their ancestry farther back than that though.
Way, way back in roman times their ancestors were filthy rich and when the world went to shit they fed poor people in return for their physical labour services. Over time this made them feudal landlords. This evolved into nobility.
Hey, /his/, can you guys help me come up with a list of the 100 most significant figures in history?
I'm trying to make a study guide for my high school academic team, since we've got districts coming up in the next couple of months.
Accept it /his/. Accept it.
That'll teach'em to just stand there in a dense group while we fire from concealed cover
the painting is Stand Your Ground by Don Troiani
it depicts the battle of Lexington, Massachusetts, April 19, 1775
a battle in which the Americans did not take cover, and a battle the British had won without losing a single man
Hey /his/ Whats the difference between Proto-Indoeuropeans and Indo europeans?
How do the people of modern France view Phillipe Pétain?
How did what originally was a minor state in the Holy Roman Empire, in an incredibly swampy and to my knowledge, not very wealthy, region of Germany manage to become the dominant force and eventually the unifying force of all of Germany?
Brandenburg already was a Electorate.
So fairly relevant.
The Saxons, who had lead the Protestant movement into the empire, ruined their position as leaders of the Protestantism when decided to converto to Catholicism when trying to get the Polish Crown, paving the road for the new Protestant champion.
