meant to say,
>Holy Spirit is the Holy Oil
Also I brewed a small batch of what I thought it was, had some very interesting aspects, though it says in the Nag Hammadi not to disclose the recipe for everyone must find it themselves.
My only concern is doing is on a full scale and drowning in it to become baptized. I love God, and the Holy Spirit, but this will be something I have never done and my balls cringe thinking about it. If anyone else believes this give me some encouragement.
Celts seemed to have substantial territory, and done influence on the classical cultures of the Mediterranean. Why is it that they never seemed to make anything much beyond that era? I understand that Gaul was well on its way to being a nation of city-states, did Rome simply kill Celtic civilisation in its infancy? What made them never have their time like Slavs, Germanics, and Italics?

They kind of did, just "their time" was so early that it's basically irrelevant by now.
What foods would Jesus have eaten?
What was the silliest thing about the Holy Roman Empire, /his/? I imagine this gigantic clump of city-states, duchies and whatever else must have attracted some snide comments from contemporaneous figures of its era.
Good history books?
What exactly made feudalism obsolete from a practical point of view?
Also, are there any countries that still had/have a (neo-)feudal system post-industrialization?
What is /his/'a opinion on this book?
Can a depression be healed by nihilism? And how does one reach that state?
Imagine if Germany stopped existing after 1918...
Imagine where the world could've been by now...
Hundreds of millions more white people alive today. Dozens of ancient European cities would be intact. More monarchies and aristocratic families would survive. The world would be tremendously better.
>early modern philosophers were all atheistic but had to include god in their system to appease the plebs
What can you tell me about pre-islamic Arab religion? I have been led to believe that genies are a big deal, and even in some Sufi sects today they claim control of "muwakil", or good slave genies. Was their religion prior to Islam similar to Caananite religion?
Were there many Jews/Christians/Zoroastrians living there?
Look into the polytheistic Hindu influences. Most evidence 'erased' with the advent of Islam.
i have a vague memory of reading about one but every time i search about it only stupid lists like "top 10 smallest countries" shows upp.
Vatican City occupies 0.44 km^2. I'm sure many if not most ancient city states had a smaller footprint. But I guess it gets fuzzy when you consider what is a "sovereign state" and what lands actually count as part of them. Well-defined borders have not always existed.
>the American civil war wasn't about slavery
Was there a people in Germany who are racists and antisemitic but doesn't support or hated the nazi and Hitler? What could be their main point?
Plenty of conservatives were racist and anti-semitic yet disliked the Nazis. However, most of the conservatives even if they disliked Hitler preferred him over the political left, which is why they supported his cause. Without the conservative parties - including the predecessor party to Merkel's CDU - Hitler couldn't have become a dictator because he lacked the absolute majority.
