>metaphysics is dead
When will this shit meme end?
Man you know what, fuck Rome.
Are there any stories from history of the good guys winning against impossible odds and fighting for just reasons?
... and don't give a shit about the Christianity and the Church?
Pascal said that the God of philosophers is not the same as the God of Abraham. What if I agree with him and just think that the God of Abraham is shit and the God of Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas is better?
Can one separate metaphysics from religion? In particular can one purify the system of Thomas Aquinas from Christian theological excretions?
Inb4 Catholics saying that the God of the Bible and Thomas Aquinas are the same. Sure thing buddy...
Inb4 Marcionism, Gnosticism.
Subject says it all.

I'm very much interested in US foreign policy and looking to get into its relations with Chile during the Allende and Pinochet regimes. I don't have any background with Chilean history so some of the "classics" on this topic would be appreciated.
pic very much related.
>Two books about Allende’s election to power in Chile during the Cold War—Harmer 2011 and Qureshi 2009—add significantly to the understanding of US opposition and response to an Allende-led Chile.

Who is to blame for the start of WW1?

What countries needed to be added to the map to properly show the world before the finno-korean hyper war, Mind you this is around a few hundred years before the war so I want all the small minor states to exist before they get swallowed up by the Finns and Koreans before the Hyper War.
Well, the landmasses are wrong, since the sea is at modern the levels. The British Isles should be connected to continental Europe and the basic map is missing Lemuria, Atlantis, Mu, Hy Brasil, and Ultima Thule.
But if this is the map you're stuck with, make sure you've got the Aryan Empire in northern India and central Asia. Keep in mind that their six-armed gods with flying nuclear palaces were still around at this point.
I'm thinking of modding the old landmasses later. Could you draw in paint the locations of those missing landmasses.
On a scale of 1-5 where should each state be placed in the tech ratings?
Is it true that to be a Christian you must hate your own life?

>We do not allow oral contraceptives, which have always been prohibited by the Church, because they are a kind of abortion. We do allow the use of condoms in marriage, because we consider them just an advanced form of coitus interruptus. Did some Church Fathers dislike coitus interruptus? No, only Saint Augustine opposed it (all of the other quotes by them supposed opposing it are talking about oral contraceptives, or are by people not considered Church Fathers by the Orthodox Church--to be a Church father, you must be both a saint...

Also Catholics who use ANY BC are in the wrong as they by fucntion remove the natural outcome of sex from the equation and make it more about the pleasure of the couple than about the uniting act of bringing forth life through the love of Husband and Wife as Christ loves His Bride, The Church.
Since crossbows were easy to use and very deadly why they even bothered with infantry? Why not just have an army of crossbowmen instead?

Why is the slippery slope even a fallacy?
If there isn't any solid evidence for something, then there's nothing wrong in making predictions for that something
>The problem with this reasoning is that it avoids engaging with the issue at hand, and instead shifts attention to extreme hypotheticals. Because no proof is presented to show that such extreme hypotheticals will in fact occur, this fallacy has the form of an appeal to emotion fallacy by leveraging fear.
Read the example and then you'll understand, maybe.
if you have situation like - there's burning burning, firefighters put it down and then you want to check if its structural integrity wasn't fucked up then you're retard who does slippery slope
you're committing the fallacy if you want to check if the building is well prepared against flooding because since it was on fire now it may be flooded later because the building is totally cursed
>if you have situation like - there's burning burning, firefighters put it down and then you want to check if its structural integrity wasn't fucked up then you're retard who does slippery slope
I mean that it doesn't work like that
