How will the rise of modern genetics affect people's identity?
An example is England. The English have historically considered themselves to be anglo-saxons, contrasting themselves with the surrounding celtic peoples. However, modern genetic studies show that the English are almost entirely celtic by genetics.
It turns out that the anglo-saxons for them most part assimilated the celts, rather than displace them.
Will information like this change people's self-perception of identity?
I'd hope not. It annoys me to no end when people get all "muh hurritage" about genetics, when identity is much more about culture and inheriting the worldviews, rather than the genetics, of various groups in the past. Whatever their genetics, the English Anglo-Saxon culture was more based on continental Germanic traditions than Celtic ones, and that's whats important.
What historical figures deserve a biopic?
Concerning the genesis of modern humanity, there are two primary theories that receive credence in anthropological circles. One is the “Out of Africa” hypothesis, which in short argues that today’s humans are the evolved descendants of a primitive race of hominids that roughly 70,000 years ago, departed its homeland in Africa and spread across the globe. Upon entering Asia and Europe, these archaic humans displaced the indigenous Neanderthals through violent conflict and higher birthrates.
The other theory is “Divergent Evolution,” or "Multiregional Hypothesis"...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The multiregional hypothesis does no longer receive credence in anthropological circles.
Besides, your picture alone is enough to invalidate it: when has evolution ever happened so cleanly and symmetrically? At the very least, Asians and Europeans should share a more recent common ancestor.
Founding Fathers a shit.
the Vikings reached america before the Spaniards?
Yes. This is well-document and generally known, taught in grade school in most places.
This is the angle that doesn't get enough attention. There's evidence he may have been to Iceland and at least had some contacts with Icelanders.
Is there any ethnic or cultural group in Europe that were so numerous and warlike yet achieved so little?
>They are people who think he will cause a new great war
C'mon the treaty of Versailles was unfair
>peace in our time
Based Neville. We're going to enter a new golden age.
Brest-Litovsk was even worse. Any if Germany had won ww1, you bet your ass there would have been massive annexations, a fourth partition of Poland, and generally the rule of Empires continuing in Continental Europe.
Can we have a thread about the greatest military leaders and feats in history?

Throwing pots filled with venomous snakes into the boats of his opponents.
I have to do an essay for "Cultural History of the United States", about something relevant between 1920-2001.
Any suggestions? It can be anything as long as it's engaging I guess. I already did an essay for this class, about the electric feud between Thomas Edison and Westinghouse, scored pretty well, but now I can't find any topic that inspires me.
Would prefer it to be be "semi obscure", as writing about something really common might be easier to catch bullshit and score lower I guess.
What went wrong?
Mindless idealism about creating a Europe that would have no war in the future.
As it stands now, the EU and Schengen is more likely to cause another war than to stop one.
"Globalism" of the rights-of-man variety.
By shutting down regional tendencies in European states, bureaucrats went full retard not acknowledging the European Union was made for white free men. Instead we got non elected nanny state with subversive tendencies like the passion for regulating things and importing muhammadans.
Is god just a projection of your own consciousness?
No, it's a way for people to 'experience' the sublime without having to take any risks, which is how you usually experience the sublime.

Who is the best military history artist and why is it Angus McBride?
I confess that even though I despise the Chinamen/Chinkaboo ''''''historians'''''' on /his/, my cock is fully erect for this.
Why couldn't the Soviets rebound from Afghanistan like the Americans rebounded from Vietnam?

Even though the guy is a commie-pinko, if you want a full understanding of American history you ought to read his book, if only to see it from the other side's perspective.
