Post cool nonexistent states.
Seapower so powerful they had to ask god to btfo their whole Island.
Let us begin with the Old Testament, before moving up to the New Testament. Post specifics, if able. This is hardly a thread to antagonize the Christcucks, but rather, is more of a side-project for myself, who likes to compile such information for convenience. :

>Solomon's empire is said to have stretched from the Euphrates in the north to the Red Sea in the south; it would have required a large commitment of men and arms and a high level of organization to conquer, subdue, and govern this area. But there is little archaeological evidence of Jerusalem being a sufficiently large city in the 10th century BCE, and Judah seems to be sparsely settled in that time period.

You are not a biblical scholar in the slightest.
>Christcucks think a book which can't even accurately record supposedly contemporary history can somehow be completely correct concerning the nature of divinity, cosmology and cosmogony, eschatology, transcendence, the future, and man's nature.
Why did pike formations stay dead for such a long time, /his/? Is it true that a feudal, decentralized state makes the raising of disciplined infantry formations impossible?
The swiss popularized the use of trained pike formations over feudal levies during the Burgundian wars in the 1470's
This led to the rise of semi professional armies by the time the French invaded Italy in the 1490's.
The Scots, Flemish and brabançonne people had pikes. So i'd say your thesis is fundamentally flawed.
On top of that what >>1074466 says is partially true, the Swiss were decentralized compared to their neighbours yet they popularized pike squares. It's probably good to note that they copied the pike from Austrian and Italian men-at-arms/Knights who have them a hard time occasionally.
Because it wasn't hugely necessary until cavalry became as big a factor as it did in the later Middle Ages.
And then once people started noticing its effectiveness the 1500s hit and everyone went full antiquiboo and started fancying themselves modern Romans and Alexanders.
Tell me about haiti. Why has it always been a miserable shit hole. Was it bad soil? Lack of domesticateable animals? Bad climate? Lack of staple crops?
Please tell me I'd like to know.
Believe it or not, Haiti (known as saint domingue) was the single richest colony of the 18ty century. It was the single largest producer of sugar in the world, the third largest producer of coffee , and a significant indigo and cotton producer. The colonial trade with the colony also was responsible for 1/8 of the jobs in france.
I've gone to vacation twice in Punta Kana in the Dominican Republic. Which is a beautiful and opulent styled resort town. But the regular cities are also pretty shitty.
Haiti isn't really any worse then the Dominican Republic.
Why do people choose fascism and socialism over liberalism? It's more than evident that this philosophy is responisble for all the prosperity and freedom we enjoy today.
In the western world, nobody except for autists has since the Great Depression. Even the parties calling themselves socialist have no intention of seizing the means of production or abolishing private property.
You happen to be browsing a well disguised support group for the spectrum disorders.
Why do pravoslavian christians (''orthodox'') pretend that they are part of the ''True Church'' when they're actually just schismatics? Did Jesus Christ want His ''True Church'' to be concentrated mainly in Eastern Europe? Or did He want it to be universal (Catholic) and have the gospel spread on all continents?
>And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
i am struggling with the idea of starting to study philosophy, is it a useful, or is it the meaningless chatter, like many accuse it to be ?
Provide me with arguments for and against it please
You can think differently about things.
Get into arguments.
Distracts you from getting work done.
Tricks you into thinking you are smart.
Depends what you can get. Analytic or continental. Just finishing my BA in analytic philosophy (predicate logic FTW) and going on to MA in continental philosophy, for the fuck of it. In either case as a study its overrated. Except 1st order logic and cognitivism, you'll want to shoot yourself because of all the old fags like Plato, Aristotle and Socrates.
>Humanities fags think their degree is worth more than a piece of toilet paper
Good luck with your job at 7/11, OP
I see a lot of hate for this guy on this board. Why? Scholars tend to rate him highly.
Why didn't the allies dissolve Germany post war just leaving the German states instead of one big state?
Because if they did the Germans fighting spirit would be routed again and you'd have another war within a couple years

How on earth is this religion viewed in a negative connotation? Is it merely due to the "Lucifer = Satan" meme? There is literally nothing to paint Lucifer as a malevolent being.
>Lucifer in this context is seen as one of many morning stars, a symbol of enlightenment, independence and human progression
How could this possibly be opposed?

Most successful religions formed a symbiotic relationship with governments of some sort, either offering complacency for the masses, or legitimization for rule.
If a religion does neither, it's less likely to thrive.
