/his/ are films inspired by comic books the result of a desire of people to escape the physicalist world view? As religion is dying out in the west, people seem to feel like a mechanistic physicalist world view is inescapable and comic book inspired films might be a form of escape to a reality where gods do exist and the perceived determinism of human and social life can be transcended. I myself would love to know what can we propose that would make space for this new kind of freedom. The freedom from a deterministic world that incorporates human life completely within...

Take the bread pill, anon. Once you open up yourself to a relationship with the Infinity, no amount of movies or le edgy fedora nonsense can dissuade you that there is more to existence than this physical world and the physical world is only an incredibly small part of creation.

>>552529 No. JEEBUS is an idea that cannot return as it was. It had its time and place, much like greek and roman polytheism. We need new tools that are appropriate for our time to create a place within the modern world view and ideology for freedom from a mechanistic physicalist world view.
What does it mean to be an artist?Does it mean not to rely on popular conventions? Does it mean making decisions about what you do that are the result of your own personal ideas? How can this distinction be made if all of us are the result of the societies we live in? What is the ideal artist? Is it a person that builds structures and opinions about the world (that do not rely too much on popular opinions and conceptions but also do not become too personal and obscure) and uses those structures of ideas to create things inspired by these ideas? Art IS usually identified... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
And should "complex" art be appreciated as an ideal to strive towards or is it simply art adjusted for the developed tools and standards of criticism(i.e. works that are designed specifically to be analyzed by those analysis theories that are available?) mastered by art critics? If so what is its opposite? A piece that is completely unplanned created quickly at a moment of inspiration?

I read a study that said atheists tend to rate disproportionately higher on tests for autism or something like that.'
While obviously not all atheists are what medical science would deem autistic (to say nothing of 4chan's understanding of the term), this did make me wonder if famous atheists or agnostics in history display any behavior that we'd consider legitimately autistic in their lives or writing.
>>551702 The Africans were immune to European diseases? Unlike the natives, Africans were in close promity with Europeans/Middle Easterners. They also didn't want to take and settle on the lands in Africa but rather exploit the resources.
To what extent can one believe in Christianity if they do not believe that Adam and Eve existed at all?
I am not necessarily referring to the account in Genesis. Bar a few protestant churches most people have clocked on to the fact it's allegorical.
That said, even Catholics are required to believe in them as historical figures:
"390 The account of the fall in Genesis 3 uses figurative language, but affirms a primeval event, a deed that took place at the beginning of the history of man. Revelation gives us the certainty of faith that the whole... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

It's only literal to people whose God and vision of reality is so small they don't understand the fall is an allegorical depiction of the dawn of the limited, discriminating consciousness, the descent from Being to Becoming
There is evidence that European civilization may have been the first and most advanced at its time, more advanced than Sumeria
I'm sure you know most European (and also a good deal of Asian) civilizations come from a single culture, right? The Proto-Indo-Europeans were a people who lived (probably) on the steppes north of Caucasus (hence why we're called "caucasians") and, about five thousand years ago, spread into Anatolia and Eastern Europe; the Greeks and Romans, the Celtic, Germanic and Slavic tribes, all of those were just different migration...

We wuz kings, snownigger edition. Seriously, if you can't prove it and have no evidence, how can you know? Proto-writing isn't writing, and I have a strange feeling your society isn't accepted by any mainstream archaeologists.
Let's educate people on historical misconceptions. Explain one popular case of history that is incorrect.
When Karl Marx writes that "Religion is the opium of the masses", he does not merely bully the religious. Opium here refers not to the popular 19th century image of London opium dens where the privileged go to entertain themselves. Nay, Marx is speaking of sedation as a suppressant of pain. Marx considered religion to be a human invention created to heal the wound created by the alienating world. Most of his philosophical influences at the time, while... Comment too long.

Unlike your average documentary or history teacher tells you, the medieval economic system was a very efficient apparatus given all of its limitations and issues. Also, serfs were not slaves and they couldn't be somehow freely be executed by noblemen. In fact, all the nonsense Game of Thrones et al presents about direct hierarchy and all that did not exist. Landlords were in practise neutered mafia bosses, who didn't govern the villages but collected the reaps. The most they usually did was sometimes bullying the farmers and create insecurity with land grants. But... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Despite the claim that 6 million Jews died in the holocaust there is no evidence for it. Anti-Semitic historians have attempted to keep the number low in order to trivialize Jewish suffering. The actual number is closer to 20 million
All of the men in this picture died. Some of them died with frozen shit and piss molded into their legs if that part of their body died first. Some of them will contract disease and be thrown from buildings by their comrades. Most of them will starve or freeze to death, however the lucky ones will be killed in combat.
