Hi. I am gathering material and inspiration for my fantasy novel.
Was there ever a religion that preached only selected few are real human beings created by God and the rest are in fact just soulless philosophical zombies crerated by Anti-God to decieve them?
Meme Empires in history .
Basically all these 50 Empires created after 4th crusade.
Why did the Councils choose to permit marriage for their clerics, whereas the catholics did not? Could it be somehow related to Matthew 19:12?
> the Councils choose to permit marriage for their clerics
Did they? It was established tradition before Catholics decided to change it because Pope wanted more power over the Church. It's not about choosing differently, it's about keeping the tradition unchanged.
Are the methods of Hegelian dialectics majorly prevalent in the current waters of global politics? Are there any blatant examples of it which you know of?
when I saw that pic, I questioned myself, how that scene would play out today? Let´s say, me and my friends come across a isle noone has ever laid hands on and nobody claims it...how could we claim it for our own? Surely we would have to follow some "legal" line, and I don´t think waving around a flag and telling some nearby birds that we claim it for ourself would be enough.
I heard that "urbanizing" it would bring us a deal, is there any source on that?
>iran = perisa
>iraq = babylonia
>syria = assyria
jordan = ?????????????
also, why didnt they keeo their old names?
the endonym for Iran IS Iran. Stemming from the word Aryan (not the nazi bullshit Aryan, true Aryans as in a specific tribe of Proto-Indo Europeans). Persia comes from what the Greeks called them, land of the Persians (or Parsa as they would have been called then). You should learn history before posting on /his/, newfriend.
My professor showed me these pictures today that he said proves Australians created civilization. What does /his/ think?
Why were the colonial powers so shit at creating nice, stable borders along ethno-cultural-linguistic, economical and religious lines EDITION.
>yfw multi-ethnic states in 2016
Who /nationalist-decolonization/ here?
>tfw exploding Brits cry about "muh terrorism".
In most places creating neat little nation states is impossible, as ethnic boundaries are not clear lines. There's usually a border zone where villages of two or more different ethnicities/cultures can be found. There'd always be people on the 'wrong' side of the line.
That said, there's plenty of nations with a plurality of ethnic/cultural groups who haven't failed - borders aren't nearly as much of a determining factor in stability as you might think.
Can someone tell me what are the club designs next to morningstar? And holy shit all of them look painful I would be more scared of them than swords.
What countries achieved all their irrendist claims? Which one have the best borders?
According to Perkins, he began writing Confessions of an Economic Hit Man in the 1980s, but "threats or bribes always convinced [him] to stop."
He also passed it off as truth for years before he revealed it to be fiction.
So fuck your shitty book and fuck your entire, parasitic hippy existance, you miserable, motherless fuck.
He never claimed it was all fake, the book is semi-autobiographical, of course things were played up for dramatic tension and such.
Honestly his claims are pretty on the money for what actually did historically happen.
>thinking about studying history in college
>check their programs
>50% is national history and the rest is modern
>ancient, medieval and early modern his is barely covered in 2 courses
Why are /his/ programs so shit?
Soup, /his/ it's your good friends from /k/ again with our weekly horrors of war thread.
Ah, the horrors of war... Like a nice glass of lemonade and a cohiba on a hot july afternoon. We think you guys are pretty cool, so why not come join us?
Idealists, say something nice about Materialism.
Materialists, say something nice about Idealism.
Idealism is true in the sense that we do only interact with mental objects in the sense that "I" thr ego is contained within the whole of the mind and informed by perceptions,which is nontrivial and interesting. But materialism simply has the causitive and explanatory power that idealism lacksh
Materialism is a good way to understand concrete principles of how the world works, but it lacks the idealism that needs to be present in a human being in order for them to be happy i.e. Being an idealist tickles youre brain in a certain way that it was meant to be tickled, on a very primal instinctual level
Just finished this book. Makes me want to vomit at the thought of the British Empire as some kind of civilizatory force.
How legit is this work?
