So whats the deal with these guys? Were they guilty or not? What is the consensus?
I'm continental'd the fuck out. What are some of the most fascinating arguments and concepts in analytical philosophy?
>tfw you realize the illusion of free will amounts to and is indistinguishable from the reality of free will
>tfw you realize determinists are btfo
what do you guys know about doggerland/the cultures that lived there?
it is proposed to be the genesis of haplogroup r1b, correct?
Apparently. There were cro-magnon and neanderthal inhabitants of what is now the British Isles well prior to that, and they were actively hunting in the area. I know a bunch of mammoth bones have been dredged up from the Dogger Bank, and we all know how delicious mammoths are.
I've seen some really based summarizations of stuff on 4chan. Could any if you guys give me some sweet musky knowledge on the history of relations between these two red giants? Every time somebody gives a good explanation of stuff like this it really clarifies current day scenarios.

atheists abstain from opinions until science tells them otherwise. their viewpoints rely on the data, whereas religion just believes whatever a book tells them to regardless of certain things being disproven
>well you see it started with the big bang
how did that start
>w-well we think its an infinite cycle of collapse of expansion
how did that start
>w-w-well we think there are virtual particles that can borrow energy from vacuums and immediately explode and that the big bang is the maximal amount of energy that can be released from this
how did that start
what do you think about Göbekli Tepe?
it's rather extraordnary
>over 9 000 BC
>megalithic structure predating Stonhenge by thousands of years
>buried around 7 - 8 000 BC for unknown reasons
>built by hunter-gatherers
thoughts? I find it fascinating, but I wonder who built it. there were no Semites in the area at that time. was it the proto-Sumerians?
There's no reason hunter-gatherers would be incapable of building monumental structures its that they have less reason to aggregate in one area than agriculturalists although sites such as starr carr saw seasonal occupation and hence more developed structures.
Could one group have started it as a shrine, another group finds it and adopts it as such, and instead of fighting over it they both agree to use it in cooperation, and the whole thing snowballs from there?
Thread for atheists and those who are interested in being atheists. Questions and answers welcome.
Tell me about the Armenians /his/
What caused continental philosophy to become to laughingstock of the intellectual world? Was it their unwillingness to side with science?
Also who are you favorite analytical philies?
>Why do people who agree with me share my distaste for a certain group
It is and isn't a laughing stock depending on the university you are in, even down to the department.
>implying the historical context of a philosophy isn't incredibly important.
Why is more important than when and what.
What ethnonym should be affixed to the ancient speakers of Coptic who built the Pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx and lived in northeastern Africa, along the Nile?
Coptic didn't exist until millenia after the pyramids and the sphinx were built, it's the latest evolution of the ancient Egyptian language.
The people you are referring to would be termed Egyptians, as opposed to Arabs.
Why is Greenberg's autism still tolerated?
What would you think if you had to walk this way?
Why did Celts mostly disappeared without a trace?
Because "Celts" do not exist, they are mostyl a 19th century invention. Each of the individual tribal groups that we now consider to be Celtic thought of themselves as completely distinct, as a result their culture has evaporated in basically all of Europe apart from the Celtic nations.
"English" people today are almost completely identical to the people of Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
