>tfw your most famous work was only appreciated after your death
Anyone else know this feel?
>tfw your life's work was not only widely ignored during your lifetime, but to add insult to injury the vast majority of people who appreciate it posthumously are nihilistic degenerates who don't understand it.
My work will never be appreciated... Welp, better go off myself.
Just how does something like this happen?
Same way a lot of the colonial wars happened. Technological edge, and even more so, a modern western military discipline and training against poorer tactical and operational troops lead to extremely lopsided results.
Was slavery something common in european countries before the discovery of the New World?
It did happen but never on an industrial-esque scale, and it wasn't nearly as race driven.
But yes it did happen. I know there were some African slaves in England in the middle ages (but I lost my source, so you're just gonna have to call me a liar or take my word for it)
So, apparently it took 12 legions, literally half of the regular force, to put down the Bar Kokhba revolt. What the hell made a bunch of desert jews so tough?
But they didn't have "that many dudes", sending that much force to Judea left the border stripped up by the Danube; and while nothing slipped through at the time, it was a pretty nasty risk to take.
Not to mention the expense in shipping troops halfway across the empire. Generally, the Emperors wanted to keep the troops where they were if at all possible.
Was the invention of the wheel a needed step for society to go on? IIRC, most sources say it's an individual invention that just spread, probably originated around Ukraine a lot of time ago. The wheel was never a thing in the Americas before european conquest, so, do you think had they been left alone, would they eventually had to come up with it?

>There have been over 3000 political philosophies, only yours is true.

You sound just like the religious you hate
Are atheist hypocrites?
Before some atheist come in here and claim agnosticism is the same thing as atheism
In the popular sense of the term, an agnostic is someone who neither believes nor disbelieves in the existence of God, while a theist believes that God exists, an atheist disbelieves in God."
Do you believe in God?
Agnostic: Maybe or I will neither confirm nor deny
Don't overthink it
How do Catholics deal with the fact that the Church murdered protestants? I'm pretty sure all Catholics today think that's immoral, but the Pope is supposed to be infallible. Do they think it was right to kill heretics at the time but not now?
>le pope is infallible may may xDD
Confirmed for not knowing dick about theology or the Church's history in general.
The Pope is only infallible when speaking ex cathedra, this is the only time the Holy Spirit will not allow him to say a heresy. Ex cathedra has only been used a handful of times in the Church's history, and none of them were used to condemn Protestants.
That said, I'm glad they burned them. Proddies are heretical fucks who completely rewrite Scripture to serve their own purposes. It's a shame...

The Roman Church was the creation of the Babylonian Brotherhood and the Pope still wears a mitre shaped like a fish head to symbolize Nimrod.
The Chair of St. Peter in the Vatican was claimed to be a holy relic, but in 1968 it was exposed by a scientific commission as being no older than the 9th century. More significantly, according to the Catholic Encyclopaedia, is that it is decorated by twelve plates portraying the twelve labours of Hercules.
Hercules was another name for Nirmod before becoming a deity...

Is there a philosophy/psychology term which describes the act of ignoring people's suffering - provided that it is in no way related to your own life?
(Tool seem to describe this situation well in the song "Vicarious" )
That is to say - ignoring other people's emotions and pain in order to maintain and further your own happiness. In fact possibly even getting happiness from seeing others suffer. I think most people have a bit of it - its a growing aspect of capitalist society, kill or be killed, and be cold or you will lose out.
I don't think it's fair to put 'indifference' under the same category as 'sociopathic behaviour.' necessarily. If you get some sort of fetishistic satisfaction from it, then yeah, but just saying "that's how it goes sometimes lol" doesn't seem sociopathic to me.
>Jews and Muslims fought together to defend Jerusalem against the invading Franks, but the crusaders entered the city on 15 July 1099. They proceeded to massacre the remaining Jewish and Muslim civilians and also pillaged or destroyed mosques or the city itself
Why did they do this?
What was cause for anti-jew sentiment before the crusades?

I laughed when in King of Kings, he mentions that the entire series was him trying to find a starting point to talk about Cleopatra.
>the Quran contains scientific miracles of knowledge
There's probably a half dozen of these retards on /his/, so come on, lets hear it. Convert me to Islam.
You have to read the Qur'an, there isn't really a way to spiritually understand Islam without just reading it.
Historically you can analyze it or you can watch TV and watch it get ruined, but in order to truly be a Muslim you just have to sit down and begin reading the Qur'an.
>reading the Qur'an
I'd say "studying the Qur'an". It's a very complex book, which is incredibly difficult to understand without deep linguistic and theological study. I've stopped reading the translations, I'd rather study Arabic and study the Qur'an as I go.
Can someone explain what mainstream economists think of economics in one lesson? I saw it insulted in econjobrumours and a quote by paul samuelson.
lots of "educated" guessing based on oversimplified models that make blatantly untrue assumptions.
t. econ major
I approve. Of course there were other who also tried to teach people about economy. Make it easy to understand. Especially in countries that had no rich history of free market.
I applaud their effort.
Has your unparalleled knowledge of history and mastery over philosophical rhetoric ever won you an evening with a beautiful young woman, /his/?
my wife is fucking HORRENDOUS and we both work in the same museum
i tell her my trips to taiwan are purely for researching the history of the natives but i'm really banging cheap 9 year old hookers
Actually, it did. I got into a pretty good conversation about South American history with a Columbian who was in one of my classes.
Is this true?
No one claims Nazis wanted to exterminate them, they were so few they were of no consideration. But now people who post that picture want to exterminate them anyways, so the point of the picture and the people who post it are stupid.
