>tfw your most famous work was only appreciated after your death
Anyone else know this feel?
>tfw your life's work was not only widely ignored during your lifetime, but to add insult to injury the vast majority of people who appreciate it posthumously are nihilistic degenerates who don't understand it.
My work will never be appreciated... Welp, better go off myself.
Just how does something like this happen?
Same way a lot of the colonial wars happened. Technological edge, and even more so, a modern western military discipline and training against poorer tactical and operational troops lead to extremely lopsided results.
Was slavery something common in european countries before the discovery of the New World?
It did happen but never on an industrial-esque scale, and it wasn't nearly as race driven.
But yes it did happen. I know there were some African slaves in England in the middle ages (but I lost my source, so you're just gonna have to call me a liar or take my word for it)
What are some good books about the history of public housing in the US?
What can /his/ tell me about the Cristero War?
How accurate is this movie?
So, apparently it took 12 legions, literally half of the regular force, to put down the Bar Kokhba revolt. What the hell made a bunch of desert jews so tough?
But they didn't have "that many dudes", sending that much force to Judea left the border stripped up by the Danube; and while nothing slipped through at the time, it was a pretty nasty risk to take.
Not to mention the expense in shipping troops halfway across the empire. Generally, the Emperors wanted to keep the troops where they were if at all possible.
Was the invention of the wheel a needed step for society to go on? IIRC, most sources say it's an individual invention that just spread, probably originated around Ukraine a lot of time ago. The wheel was never a thing in the Americas before european conquest, so, do you think had they been left alone, would they eventually had to come up with it?
How do i kill a god?
Ok so this may belong to /tv/ if so, sorry
I'm looking for historicaly accurate movies about the discovery of the Americas
It can be about pretty much everything, from the very first travel of Colombus to the western Frontier of the USA, trappers in Canada, the conquistadores...
By historical and accurate I mean either movies depicting actual events or fiction with good reconstitution of the times and places etc
Malick's The New World is surprisingly good for accuracy. The Pocahontas/John Smith stuff is all fiction, but most of the rest of the movie is very accurate, especially its depiction of the normal lives of the Jamestown settlers and nearby Native Americans.
Apocalypto od pretty solid if you forget the whole Mel Gibson thing.
The main inaccuracy is that it merged some aspects of Aztecs into Mayas and set the plot in the latest Classic period (Actually during the Maya collapse) , which was long before the Spanish arrived.
>There have been over 3000 political philosophies, only yours is true.
>There has been over 3000 physical models, only yours is true
>There has been over 3000 moral codes, only yours is true
You sound just like the religious you hate
Are atheist hypocrites?
Before some atheist come in here and claim agnosticism is the same thing as atheism
In the popular sense of the term, an agnostic is someone who neither believes nor disbelieves in the existence of God, while a theist believes that God exists, an atheist disbelieves in God."
Do you believe in God?
Agnostic: Maybe or I will neither confirm nor deny
Don't overthink it
How do Catholics deal with the fact that the Church murdered protestants? I'm pretty sure all Catholics today think that's immoral, but the Pope is supposed to be infallible. Do they think it was right to kill heretics at the time but not now?
>le pope is infallible may may xDD
Confirmed for not knowing dick about theology or the Church's history in general.
The Pope is only infallible when speaking ex cathedra, this is the only time the Holy Spirit will not allow him to say a heresy. Ex cathedra has only been used a handful of times in the Church's history, and none of them were used to condemn Protestants.
That said, I'm glad they burned them. Proddies are heretical fucks who completely rewrite Scripture to serve their own purposes. It's a shame...

The Roman Church was the creation of the Babylonian Brotherhood and the Pope still wears a mitre shaped like a fish head to symbolize Nimrod.
The Chair of St. Peter in the Vatican was claimed to be a holy relic, but in 1968 it was exposed by a scientific commission as being no older than the 9th century. More significantly, according to the Catholic Encyclopaedia, is that it is decorated by twelve plates portraying the twelve labours of Hercules.
Hercules was another name for Nirmod before becoming a deity...

Is there a philosophy/psychology term which describes the act of ignoring people's suffering - provided that it is in no way related to your own life?
(Tool seem to describe this situation well in the song "Vicarious" )
That is to say - ignoring other people's emotions and pain in order to maintain and further your own happiness. In fact possibly even getting happiness from seeing others suffer. I think most people have a bit of it - its a growing aspect of capitalist society, kill or be killed, and be cold or you will lose out.
I don't think it's fair to put 'indifference' under the same category as 'sociopathic behaviour.' necessarily. If you get some sort of fetishistic satisfaction from it, then yeah, but just saying "that's how it goes sometimes lol" doesn't seem sociopathic to me.
>Jews and Muslims fought together to defend Jerusalem against the invading Franks, but the crusaders entered the city on 15 July 1099. They proceeded to massacre the remaining Jewish and Muslim civilians and also pillaged or destroyed mosques or the city itself
Why did they do this?
What was cause for anti-jew sentiment before the crusades?
Did Catholics (particularly those in Hungary and Spain) really consider frequent bathing to be a sinful/Islamic activity?
Id like to mention that bathing has diminishing returns on sanitation. It agitates the skin and kills your antibodies along with all the germs it kills. Id like to mention that our body also uses several types of germa as mercenaries, mny of which the body contracts slower than it does bacteria.
Id like to mention how important beds are, because they act as a breeding ground for our mercenaries.

I laughed when in King of Kings, he mentions that the entire series was him trying to find a starting point to talk about Cleopatra.
