Can abstract entities be destroyed?
But then doesn't that just eventually culminate in destroying yourself? Even if you don't subscribe to said abstract entity, it's already still infected your mind if you understand it well enough to want to destroy it.
Yukio Mishima was kind of a neat person.

You're on a humanities board and good and evil are abstract constructions with subjective definitions. These things don't work without canonical morality within a fictional setting.
I've been considering learning an ancient language recently. Any recomendations which I should study? Any tips for learning a dead language?
You're going to have a fucking terrible time finding english-based learning materials for anything other than Latin or Ancient Greek
My first tip is that you should make sure you really want to spend all that time and effort learning something that you won't be using at all. You could be basically fluent in Spanish in like 6-8 months if you work at it and it'll look amazing on your resume (assuming you're American). That amount of time is what it takes just to get started on something dead.
Well Latin and ancient Greek would be the obvious go-to's.
Less common but still widespread would be Syriac or old Persian.
If you wanna go really obscure you could learn old Armenian or Coptic.
I've seen books in libraries for every one of these languages so you might have to drive a little to get to a library that has it but there should be enough resources to get started.
It's very, very common that methods for ancient languages other than Latin assume that you already know some Latin.

Start with Latin op.

I'm taking someone that did me wrong to court. He will be spending a long time in jail without a doubt for a felony warrant. The problem is I don't want him to have the chance to get revenge by finding me. Will the court or attorneys give him any of my personal information/address to find me? I know the police report has my address.

You already have your answer. You need a PRO, Permanent Restraining Order.
Why people believe in thousand years old prophet word, but when modern guy tells everyone that he is prophet of God, they say that he is crazy one?! Isn't that hypocritical at best and insane at worst?
One has stood the test of time, at least.
Also, if I were religious, I wouldn't trust that modern religious scholars were competent to determine whether a self-proclaimed prophet was the real deal or not. Theological training these days is a joke. Evangelical Protestants are having a big fight right now over the Trinity. The fucking TRINITY.
Is there any philosphy that will be challenged by the new world population, and the fact that civilians deaths are now reaching record levels?
We can all agree that postmodernism is stupid right?
used to shit on pomo all the time
except for some pretty wanky stuff it's actually very solid and very fascinating, as long you keep your feet on the ground and don't get swept away by the le u cant kno nuffn bullshit
jfc, who approved these trash names? Did no one have any goddamn foresight? What the hell are we going to call the shit that starts 50 years from now, or the shit after that, and so on. How much self absorbed tunnel vision do you need to be going through to name your own era like this?

Why was the King of Bohemia fighting for the French at Crecy?
How did the Soviets treat the survivors of concentration camps, or even western allies POW?
The post-WWII period both east and west was pretty tragic. The holocaust survivors were treated better by both the Soviets and AmeriBrits but still a lot of people died in the aftermath of WWII or remained displaced for years afterwards.
The Soviet sphere was more damaged by the war with led to more deaths and the whatnot. But the Soviets did try to do well by them, of course this meant allocating food to them after a war that led to the destruction of much of the arable farmland of the Soviet Union and the rest of Eastern Europe and food lines and even a decent sized...

pretty much this, you can shorten down Allied treatment of camp survivors as "as well as they could provide"
The Soviets transformed Auschwitz's remaining buildings into hospital units, as transporting them to another city would likely kill many of them mid-journey, and treated the remaining prisoners to health from there.
After which, the camp served as an NKVD post before being turned over the Polish in 1947, where it was made a memorial/museum.
How is Saladin Kurdish?
>The name of his oldest brother: Turan Shah
>The name of his younger brother: Böri/Börü, (the name of Khan's guardian during Göktürk and Uyghur periods)
>Another brother of Saladin was called "Tuğtekin"
Saladin's father Necmettin Ayyub served to Seljuks and Zengid dynasty as Amir and settled among the Turkoman tribes in Azerbaijan. His mother was the sister of Şihabeddin Mahmud ibn Tokuş (Turk), Harem Amir of Syria,...

explain this bullshit
Well OP, what is your explanation?
It's a parable which codifies the rejection of human sacrifice among Early Judaism (Hebrews, in this case the Javists or Yahwists (followers of the traditions in the "J" source).
Pretty simple really.
