This guy pokes his head out of his car at you and says
>History is inherently unscientific
How do you respond?
Hey, /his/ half brit half chilean fag here. My old man was a revolutionary during Pinochet's time in power and he always claims that it was the American's lone fault that Pinochet took power.
Personally I think this is bullshit, and even without American support Allende fucked up so much that it would've resulted in a coup either way.
Chilean here. Allende arrived to power with only 1/3 of the voters. The votes were divided with 1/3 on the right (national party), 1/3 the left (the unidad popular) and 1/3 the political centre (christian democracy). He was elected by congress after a pact with the centre. He led a very polarizing goverment and he didn't had the support of the majority, not even the left ( the left was divided between communist and socialist). The coup wasn't inevitable, but he was destined to fail in his plans
Is racism a neuro-masculine trait? Does it serve a biological function? I've come across a lot more racist men than racist women in my life, and I think it has to do with the fact that men are more worried about interlopers from other tribes coming and "stealing" their women, so they had to make this ingroup solidarity with other men in the tribe. Women never had to develop this urge, and instead only value strength, because they will reproduce regardless.
I don't believe that racism is natural. Racism is learned behavior.
What causes racism is that certain groups, such as blacks, behave in antisocial ways : they are rude, loud, commit a lot of crime, etc.
So let's settle this once and for all. Was America founded on Christianity or not? Most evidence I have seen points to no
the colonists literally came to the colonies because the church of england was oppressing their meme religions, usually deism and wacky off shoots of protestantism
>only had one reference to religion
Except that part where it mentions "their Creator"
Was Mansa Musa richest guy who ever lived on this planet?
I've read stuff to the effect of Bill Gates being the richest in terms of actual purchasing power, but since wealthy Romans could and did pay armies out-of-pocket, I have trouble believing it. Who knows how many mercs Bill could buy, though?
Everything about Joseph Smith and this region is fucked up
What went wrong during the 1970's?

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
the war on drugs has not failed. Anyone who says otherwise is a meming faggot. The reason crime rates increased is a direct consequence of increasing drug use/addiction and repression tactics were the only logical means to staving off the problem
Fuck off op
>its a social construct, therefore it doesn't exist
how do we stop this meme?
How can anyone earnestly be a Christian after having read these guys?
Christianity is BTFO and it requires willful ignorance to not see that.
Most people are Christian because their parents are, and never bother to learn philosophy. It's the sad truth. That's why Christianity is growing like mad in uneducated places like Africa and shrinking in the West
About how fucked was Italy after the wars of Belisarius and Narses? Were all the cities depopulated? Did Rome get abandoned? I've heard the entire land became a desert but that can't be true can it?
I can't give you any exact data but on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being Rome under Augustus and 10 being a Mad Max wasteland, lets go for a 6.5/10.
The WRE had fallen but Italy was still Romanesque by the sixth century. The Gothic War fucked it up and divided the peninsula between Byzantines, who were too distant to govern well, and Lombards, who were barbarians. Arabs showed up a century later and raided the place.
>History exam covering The New Deal, WWII, and The Cold War
>Barely read any of the chapters
>Exam in less than 3 hours
Any tips for me?
The New Deal was useless as fuck, the thing that actually improved the economy was the war effort
PS: I have no idea what the New Deal is, but I read a post saying that earlier on this board
is logic an illusion?
When in the history of humanity has a country ever been destroyed because it didn't breed enough to keep its population up?
I want just one objectively true case where a country was destroyed not by outside influence, not by anarchy or revolution, not by anything except for lack of breeding speed.
I can't think of a single case where a strong country just suddenly died because no one was breeding.
Your question is stupid. Low population growth and a lack of breeding would be a contributing factor to getting conquered or assimalated into a larger country or culture. Unless you have walls that will completely cut you off from the whole world.
What are the manliest philosophical concepts?
The categorical imperative is fucking manly, no bullshitting just rules.
Was "free trade" originally just an excuse for European countries to exploit their dominance of global trade at the expense of all non-European countries (e.g. The Opium Wars)?
