Were Native American warriors actually that good? Or was it a matter that they only had to fight dudes with extremely slow guns. Did they develop any truly advanced tactics or strategy?
Al-Rāzī was a Muslim theologian that argued against the validity of prophets and revealed holy books. He reasoned that a perfectly good God would make knowledge available, that all knowledge from of how to live and how the universe was formed could be figured out rationally. It wouldn't make sense for God to conceal this information and restrict it to only a few prophets and their followers. He also observed that prophets and holy books create war and strive as people endlessly fight over who has the "right prophet" without end which could not be the work of...

To fight against Islam
To lead Islam
To found, interpret, and spread Islam
To pretend to be muslims and corrupt it from the inside with their pagan attitudes
Did the Saxons split off between those thaat migrated to England and those that stayed in Saxony? What is known about the Saxons which stayed behind in Germany and how did they differentiate themselves from the English Saxons?
Yes. But the idea of "Saxon" was thrown onto many Germanic peoples. They were all Germanic, but there is a reason we call the Saxons that went into medieval England "Anglo-Saxon". The land was named after them they were so influential.
The Saxons that remained in Europe were a large conglomerate of tribes. They were influenced by their still Germanic neighbors. Once Charlemagne and his Latinboos started carving up Europe, they came under threat of invasion. Unlike their Anglo cousins on the Isle,...

Am I the only one that hates it when they construct modern style buldings in a historic district?
What country or city has the best old or classic architecture?
In what countries am I the least likely to find abominations like pic related?
Is this for example more common in Germany (which was badly bombed) than in France?
Why was Portugal a powerful colonial power during the Age of Exploration, and such?
Confess your boos /his/, i'll start:
Guys, I want to go to the beach, but the entire state of Georgia is in my way.
What should I do?
When Greece became independent from the Ottomans, was there anyone (politically important/relevant) calling for the restoration of the Roman Empire? Or did everyone agree on creating a new Greek state?
Greeks still called themselves Romans up to about the 1980s, some older people still refer to themselves as Romans to this day. So why was their monarch titled the King of the Hellenes, and not of the Romaioi?
They just wanted Greece.
When you say they called themselves Romans, they weren't really calling themselves Romans, it was just the word for themselves, it had long since lost the direct meaning of Roman. When i say im English i don't mean im an Angle from north Germany.
First battle of the Greek war of independence was in Romania, the war grew out of an effort to restore the whole Byzantine Empire, they wanted to grab Constantinople as late as WWI. But they failed, so "Greece" it was.
So let's settle this once and for all. Was America founded on Christianity or not? Most evidence I have seen points to no
the colonists literally came to the colonies because the church of england was oppressing their meme religions, usually deism and wacky off shoots of protestantism
>only had one reference to religion
Except that part where it mentions "their Creator"
About how fucked was Italy after the wars of Belisarius and Narses? Were all the cities depopulated? Did Rome get abandoned? I've heard the entire land became a desert but that can't be true can it?
I can't give you any exact data but on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being Rome under Augustus and 10 being a Mad Max wasteland, lets go for a 6.5/10.
The WRE had fallen but Italy was still Romanesque by the sixth century. The Gothic War fucked it up and divided the peninsula between Byzantines, who were too distant to govern well, and Lombards, who were barbarians. Arabs showed up a century later and raided the place.
What is "western civilization", /int/?
Where does it begin, and where does it end?

Does anybody here have any thoughts on the mysterious Vinca culture? Was it actually an Ancient Civilization or just a highly advanced culture?
Some fun facts about the Vinca are as following:
>Early form of proto-writing that predated development of Sumerian proper
>Advanced farming technology
>Produced the first copper ever
It wasn't really a civilization, they probably lacked a common political power. Culture in this definition means a group of archeological sites with similar features, whetever they were the same ethnicity or power is unknown.
As for the protowriting, thats not unique either, we know about many symbols before proper writing began, such as Chinese Neolithic signs or the Dispillio tablet. If you think about its only natural there were first these highly ideographic signs before actual writing.
Looking at the finds themselves, I think it speaks for itself.
The disk itself is the more interesting one, I find it funny how many people overinterpret it, back in HS my history teacher said to him its just a comic about hunting that tells x number of hunters set out with bows to shoot down y number of game, then they had a big fire and danced around it.
Instead there are quasi fringe ideas about it shoes some mystical whatever with deep connection to cultures at the globes other side.
It's one of the more interesting ancient cultures of the world along with the Natufian.
Not much is known about it and hard to assess the level of civilization. Overall the copper production is probably the most
