>ITT: Monarchs so bad that their name was no longer used
Wait, how was Henry viewed by posterity in England?
Favorite military uniforms in history?
Post you Latinized name /his/
Petrus Henrici here
Could be worse

How could Adam and Eve be punished for disobeying God? They didn't even know right from wrong, theistfags explain.
Friendly reminder that Plato and Aristotle fucked up the entire history of western philosophy. The sophists and the presocratics were the only true philosophers in Greece. If it weren't held back by Plato and Aristotle, philosophy would be able to explain the meaning of life and the nature of reality today. Also remember that it was neoplatonism which turned christianity into an antiscientific cuck cult.
What did he mean by this /his/ ?
He meant he was a cheeky bastard.
It was holy as declared by their clergy, it was Roman as declared by their emperor claiming descent from Charlemagne (Charlemagne carried on the spirit of Rome) and it was an empire (it was a collection of otherwise separate smaller German kingdoms.
Are the people of England more Germanic or Celtic?
>The Romans, Vikings and Normans may have ruled or invaded the British for hundreds of years, but they left barely a trace on our DNA, the first detailed study of the genetics of British people has revealed.
>The analysis shows that the Anglo-Saxons were the only conquering force, around 400-500 AD, to substantially alter the country’s genetic makeup, with most white British people now owing almost 30% of their DNA to the ancestors of modern-day Germans.

no, no no.
culturally, absolutely. genetically, the vast, vast majority of people on island are still the same people that built stonehenge. more fair-haired looking people were noted living there in roman days. they just got culturally assfucked by the germanic invaders and became angles, for better or worse.
Matthew 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Ok so I get that Orthodox and specially Catholics only pay lip service to the bible anyway, so who cares what the bible says. But what about protestants and young earth creationists who supposedly take the bible literally? How...

>Implying Christians read the Bible.
Have you ever looked down at one of those lists about all the old testament prophecies Jesus fulfilled? Half of them are in psalms, a non-prophetic work, and a lot of the rest aren't messianic in any way, shape, or form, like God's pronouncement to Eve that her descendents will war endlessly with the snake.
If they could read the Bible, they probably wouldn't be Christians.
This. It's like the quickest cure for soemone being a muslim is to make them read the Koran, Christians have this idea about the Bible as this special and obviously accurate book, actually reading it would be a massive test of their faith,
This drive me mad. I've gone through Matthew and looked up the scriptural sources to all the fullfilled prophecies and in my head I was screaming the whole time "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?!" by far my favorite is the fullfilled prophecy of Judas's death. the prophecy it fullfilled isn't even in the bible (well technically it is). It's a combination of a non-prophecy in Jeremiah where he buys land and a prophecy in Zechariah.
Alright, since the general sentiment on this board is is that Marx is a complete hack, I have a challenge.
I'll stop reading and believing Marx if anti-Marxists can prove to me that there exists a single society where the social order was not established through violence, and where land ownership was not established through violence. If you can prove to me that capitalism could possibly have started under nonviolent or fair circumstances, which I'm positive you can't, I'll stop shitposting Marx.
Capitalism is the continuism of our base instincts, ever since ugg the caveman reasoned having 2 goats is better than one and ugg the caveman sought out his third or fourth goat under any means
Why are myths about Africans never having any civilization, only living in mud huts, and not using their resources, and never had metal working still spread today? Can people not open a history book? Also Africa thread

We're writing /his/tory, yet you plebs do not even discuss this.
Why do idiots love this so much? It has merits, but so does any religion/philosophy.
is there a darker side to buddhism? any branch of it that advocated violence, or had otherwise crazy beliefs? from what I know, it was mostly an ok religion. regardless if you agree with their teachings or not, they at least usually left people alone.
This, pretty much. It allows you to have some sort of religion or meaning in your life besides exploitative capitalist consumption without actually believing into anything that is too unrealistic.
I don't know much about Korean history, but I'm interested in learning more. Know anything?
