Is pop philosophy going to be the next pop science?

Same question for the Illiad.

Was the Renaissance an improvement for society in anything other than arts?
Right. Fuck Newton and the likes. An interest in science has never helped any society, right?
It didn't improve the life of the layman but neither did anything until well after the working conditions of the Industrial Revolutions were made non-abusive.
The only animal to rise to the rank of Sergeant. Could detect gas undetectable by humans, pulled men out of "no man's land" by detecting their language and adored with many medals for his bravery. American hero.
Post cool maps.
>that time I drew an extensively detailed map and simulated realistic human migration patterns before writing up a fictional biography of a king by cobbling together multiple semi conflicting diary entries, propaganda, historic texts all composed by his friends, enemies, family, peasants, and fellow nobles
I am become Tism
Destroyer of social events
here's a better resolution, if anyone wants a closer look:
That's really cool. I know someone who's doing something like that with simulators for accurate geography and fault lines and such. Really cool stuff. I kind of wish I had the patience and creativity to go somewhere with a project like that. Do you mind sharing?
Question for Anti-Hedonists: Do you eat meat? If so, why? If you argue that it is for nutrition, do you eat Offal as well (Organs contain the most vitamin in the body, so eating them would be most efficient)? If Neither, then you do realize you put an animal through a lifetime of suffering for your own pleasure and convenience
>then you do realize you put an animal through a lifetime of suffering for your own pleasure and convenience
>implying this is bad
By extension of this principle, reproducing is immoral as you are subjecting another animal to suffer a life for your own innate desires.
How does the war go if this was the result? Note: Bismarck's rudder is functional. Damage report:
- Anton turret knocked out, needs port for repairs
- Bruno turret knocked out, needs port for repairs
- Slight list to port
- Moderate damage to secondary armament
Still leaking oil from engagement with Hood/PoW. In summary, it will definitely need to race for France to put in for repairs.
How did modern European identity came about after the fall of the Roman Empire? Specifically in Western Europe where you had the Franks, Visigoths, and Lombards running around; how did these groups create a "French" or "Spaniard" identity?
Phillip II of France stylized himself as King of France for no reason when all the previous monarchies were King of the Franks, for example.
The short version is when a ruler controls enough of a region and has enough security he can "King of ___". Prior to that he might associate with a group of people (King of the Franks) or acknowledge a higher power (King in Prussia).
After that, that monarch and his descendants go about purging the state of religious minorities and establishing a common language.
This is, of course, a vast generalization. But in general geopolitical entities start as a state and then become a nation.
>how did these groups create a "French" or "Spaniard" identity?
Those identities were more loyalty to a King and the idea of common interest. This wasn't ethnically based. Once that shit started France was smart enough to kill regional linguistic groups ... Spain wasn't.

Why did Nazis hate Slavs?
They were living in their farm land/living space and weren't currently working as their slave labor force.

What happend to the souls of aztec sacrifices?
Where they eaten/stoppend to exist? Or did they serve the gods they were sacrificed to?
The Aztecs believed that people had 3 'soul centers', one in the mind, one in the heart and one in the liver.
The mind's soul (Tonali), was linked to the highest heaven of the universe and it was directly related to the gods. Tonali comes from the etymological root heat (Tona) and the hair was the physical manifestation of this soul, just like the sun rays are the physical manifestation of the sun's Tonali.
The heart's soul (Teyolia) was related to blood, literally and figuratively, since it was related to the ancestors and the knowledge....

I think one of the best ways to have a closer understanding of these concepts and their perception of life is through their poetry:
What was it that your mind perhaps was finding?
Where was your heart?
That is why you give your heart to every thing;
without direction you take it; you go about destroying your heart.
On the earth, can you go in search of something? Can it be lived on the Earth?
Not for always on earth: just a little here.
Even though it be jade it breaks,
