All I've seen on /his/ is arguments over what race Ethiopians are, or cool stuff about their previous empires, but no one ever mentions that it's literally the birthplace of humanity.
Why is that? Pic related, oldest Homo sapiens skull found in history.
It's because most people are not very interested in pre-historic history. As the name implies, it's not even really history. Humans weren't all that interesting until we started writing symphonies and building cathedrals. It doesn't really matter too much where we came from, except from a biological anthropological perspective.
Majabahit, Khmer Empire, Cham Empire, all vanished the 1500's. What happened?
Moluccas showed up and started a pirate empire of Sorts
Double teamed by Thailand and Vietnam.
Ded by 1400's. Due to Vietnamese State doing unto others what China did to them.
By 1500's, the new kids on the block was Burma (well, not really that new), Thailand, Vietnam, Moluccas, and the Bruneian Empire.

What can be said about the Olmec culture? Also no WE WUZ KONGZ, it derails threads and makes them go to shit.

Female warrior thread?
>>Sikelgaita frequently accompanied Robert on his conquests. She conducted the siege of Trani (1080) while Robert moved against Taranto. Although at first she tried to persuade him not to attack the Byzantine Empire, she nevertheless brought troops and accompanied him on his campaign against them. At the Battle of Dyrrhachium in 1081 she was on the field in full armour, rallying her and Robert's troops when they were initially repulsed by the Byzantine army and were in danger of losing cohesion. As a middle-aged woman...

I'm interested in evolutionary psychology and I want to study it and learn it to the fullest extent that I can.
Where should I start? Where should I go from there?
Do you have a decent understanding of psychology to begin with? Do you know psychology's history as a field? I think that is the best place to start then move on studying research and theory you can apply.

why even live?
Heh, I've got at least one of those. Coming from the mystic east, I have ancestors who descended from legendary god emperors, and even bear the name to this day.
Of course there's an asterisk there considering deification was posthumous.
I wonder if people in Greece still bear the family names of the Argeads, or the Atreids.
Find some /his/tory pick up and all day you'll have a triggered board.
How accurate is this, /his/?
Actually, if oyu look at the rates of death in battle in ancient Greece compared to deaths in childbirth of at least Roman times (as far as I'm aware, nobody compiled even cursory statistics about Greek death in childbirth), bearing children was enormously more dangerous than fighting in battle. Orders of magnitude more, especially for the Spartans, who won a lot more than they lost.
So could there be some shred of truth to some of the tumblr historians?
Is war ever morally justifiable?
Why didn't anyone outside of Europe try colonizing?
Could Morocco have colonized, and if yes why didn't it?
Because Europe is keked by Islam and Italians off the Main trading routes of the world.
Meanwhile the likes of China, Ottomans, Indians aren't.
The only one that tried was Japan and boy did it fail.
The greatest trick that religions ever pulled was to pretend that the central religious question is "does God exist"?
Actually, from a societal point of view, that question doesn't have much to do with anything. The real question is: "Did God interact with the physical world to found a religion?"
Christians and atheists shouldn't be arguing about God, they should be arguing about whether Jesus had supernatural powers.
But every religion I'm aware of answers the second question in the affirmative, that the God or Gods they worship affect the world with explicit supernatural actions.
That's viewed as secondary to the "Does God exist" because the usual evidence advanced for God's existence rests on these miracles, which, if believed, demonstrate an affirmative answer to both questions.
ITT: people who didn't deserve it
entire family, even the qt princesses, dragged into a room and mercilessly shot to death by bolshevik filth
The political logic was undeniable though.
Damn shame, he should've passed up that crown and become a full time family man before 1914. Guy was a pretty awful Czar, but by all accounts a top-tier husband and father.
Boo fucking hoo
Do you honestly expect anyone to reasonably care about one family in 1918, when both WW1 (which caused 18 million deaths) and the Russian Civil War (which led to 9 million deaths) were simultaneously happening? Yeah, just focus all your mourning on the people who actually needed to/deserved to be killed.
He would not spend his time in petty wars with rising and dying countries, and would had probably crushed the Khazarian powered revolutions.
