Does anyone else here immensely enjoy haplogroups and population genetics?
There have been many times when I find that some ancient piece of text refers to a people related to others which is confirmed by haplogroups.
where does this map comes from? are there any further indications? I'd like to know the haplogroup of my zone.
to answer your question: I love this kind of studies, I've read som Cavalli-Sforza, but I hate when /pol/tards use it to support some wacky racist theory. If it is done seriously, it is a great field of studies
Could Germany have won WW2? Starting from the fall of France if the German leadership had made different decisions could they have kept control of Western Europe or at least avoid total defeat?
If they captured Moscow instead of pushing into Crimea that would have helped (would have brought Japan into the war).
declaring war on the United States was a mistake.
Making a better mass produced tank would have helped with their armor shortage.
It really depended on if Hitler could make peace with the West so he could attack Russia unimpeded.
Has there ever been a dictator who changed his country for the better more than this guy?
He's definitely the most successful that's lived in our lifetime at least.
Has there ever been a crazier modern leader?
'The attempt on my crown has left me battered and tired, but I assure you my resolve has never been stronger. Henceforth, the Saxon Kingdoms shall be reorganised into the first unified English Kingdom, for a safe and secure Anglo-Saxon Hegemony.'
"You turned them agaisnt me!"
And also is it possible that Poles genetically don't have a resistance toward it? Because if I were to inject such a disease in your common Western European citizen and a Pole today, would they both hold out or would the Pole instantly die?
Very interested. Please comment.
Are Muslim caliphates the only examples of successful theocracies in history?
Technically, China and Japan were founded as theocracies, but their respective tribal shamans grew to something else (i.e. largely secular rulers such as the Chinese Huangdi and the Japanese Tenno.)
Has familial closeness always been a part of humanity or is family just a marketing gimmick invented to fuel another capitalist money grab?

You do know the first fucking societies in the world was the family unit right?
Like people are already "racist" to you because you're from another clan village back in the real early days.
Sup /his/, something different for a change: any fans of legal history here?
For the past week I've been working on an essay on the czech legal history and I have to say, it's a fascinating new perspective on history.
Unfortunately there is this gigantic circlejerk of every author here on the continent of
>muh roman law
The fucking french made an awesome civil code, so the germans of course made theirs way too technical. Meanwhile, you got the british hanging on to their 'fuck any systematic law' attitute.

Can we discuss Krtek history instead? He's way more based that some law garbage.
why didn't we (by we, the americans) forcibly integrate the native americans instead of pushing them off more and more of their land?
I don't know their thought process, but, I think that they thought of it as too much of a hassle and them as too much of a threat.
While the field of fashion in itself is a social construct, dependant on the changes that occur societies, why aren't we undergoing a sudden surge of new ideas when we're at the eve of a war? There's nothing truly innovative in today's fashion and we are simply recycling ideas that were already there and the clothing which truly is innovative is not as accessible to the general populace or the bourgeois classes as it was post-WW2.
What's the verdict? Glorified dictator or liberator and saviour?

Why is this not the history book to end all history books /his/?
Redpill me on this gem, I'm all ears.

what's your take on it senpai?
It's not a bad book, especially as an introduction to this sort of thing, but it attributes way too much to geography when there are certainly other factors that contribute to the success of certain civilizations. It also fails to address some of the more obvious criticisms.
We need a reading list edition
Why don;t you guys believe in Sola Scripture?
