Did anyone ever stop to say "Wow, don't you think this is a BIT excessive?"
How would the world look like without Christianity? Would it truly be a better place? I'm an atheist but I'm not so sure about it on one hand yeah Christianity did plenty of bad things but so did pagan religions let's not pretend human sacrifice wasn't a thing and that christianity didn't abolish plenty of fucked up practices then again some other religion or philosophy would propably do it as well. To think about it let's say Christianity never existed and some other religion would become a dominant one in Europe do you think it would abuse it's...

The fall of Rome would probably have a harder effect on Europe when warlords have less religious unity or and pagan religions that encouraged warfare.
Zoroastrianism would be the main monotheistic religion, unless Islam still rises without Christian influence which is certainly possible if Jews still exist.
If Islam still forms Europe is fucked.
Have you read them all, /his/?

How different would England be if the last Anglo Saxon King Harold Godwinson defeated the French frog Duke Willian the Bastard at the Battle of Hastings in 1066?
>Mfw the last invasion of France attempted by an Anglo Saxon king ended up with the best soldiers and commanders of England btfo by pesants and a bunch of french knights
How possible would it have been for Ireland to defend against invaders or even expand if they had got their shit together and United? Were they known for being good fighters or is their only impressive trait being the guys who protected some sort of scripture or knowledge which was burned elsewhere or something?
Not even the first time I've heard this.
I heard the following things worthy of mention:
>Ireland preserved knowledge or writing for places with bigger dicks which helped prevent some sort of disaster
>Ulster kicked ass in the First World War with some dickass rifles
I only know the latter to be widely accepted as true.
Other that, I see very little. Apparently the IRA were a force to be reckoned with at one point.
When was the horse domesticated and by who?
The lengths at which the white man will go to put himself in the spotlight.
They arent europeans. They arent even indo-europeans yet. But some of them may be one day, so best mention it!

Did God create other humans before Adam and Eve?
It states in the Bible God created them male and female in reference to creating man. The Bible then states that God created Adam, Eve and the "animals" AFTER creating man. When Cain was banished he replied "Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.".
Who exactly would slay Cain if the only people on Earth...

It is universally known that Adam was the first man and Eve the first woman. It is therefore generally accepted that Cain married Eve (after Adam died) or a (partial) sister. The old testament is full of incest so it's not all that bizarre in the overall narrative.
Most likely Cain's brothers were set on revenge for Abel's murder. However the bible says Cain was marked so he would not be killed.
>Did God create other humans before Adam and Eve?
Yes, Adam and Eve were only considered to be the ultimate ancestors of Abraham, and thus the Hebrew people by its original authors. "Adam was DA FIRST PERSON EVAR" came later.
So why exactly do people need a "leader" to guide them and tell them what to do? Can't people think for themselves? Is there a historical reason why this is the case or did evolution just make us that way.
the best way to acquire a skill is to submit to someone's authority
usually a book written by an expert, or a tutor
point is: true authority is natural
ideally those who are best suited to lead should lead
but it's difficult to implement any such system in practice
le "most people are dumb" epin maymay xD
me so smart hue hue :-P ^_^**
I know that 0.999... = 1

Why victimless crimes are a thing?
They're poorly defined as "victimless," when in reality, they have victims, its just not obvious to many who see these crimes as only affecting the individual. Consider how illegal drug use is usually defined as a victimless crime. That drug had to come some where and most likely came from an organized crime syndicate who is financed by the drug and who are also associated with other, more major, crimes.
tell me about history of russian language
It's heavily based on written Church Slavonic language as opposed to spoken dialects due to colonial nature of Russia. First person who laid the foundation for modern Russian language was Lomonosov with his High, Middle and Low styles - modern one started to be developing around Middle style.
Alexander Pushkin is generally considered the first person writing in proper modern Russian language.
Historical memes you want to make a comeback in 2016:
"Men who sleep with lots of women are effeminate degenerates" - the Romans.
"Any hole's a goal (as long as you're the fucker, not the fuckee)" - the Romans.
"Cats" - the Egyptians.
>pants are for barbarians
>curvy women with dark hair are perfect
>tall people with light hair and light eyes are disgusting barbarians
romans just better taste
curvy doesn't mean fat you moron, it means big tits and a nice hips and ass
Spengler's Eight Civilizations (and one emergent high culture)
Are Slavs in Western? Huntington lists Orthodox as a separate one.
Western Slavs are indeed Western. The Czech were associated with HRE since the beginning and later just the Habsburgs alone. Poles went with them and later they irreversibly turned to West thanks to Napoleon.
Thinking about buying this, is it as good as people say?
if you want to know about the rise and fall of the third reich then I'd say it's a pretty good place to start, you just need to get over the awkward bits where the author complains about homosexuality for a sentence.
