If God and Satan were real, with whom you would sympathies lie?
You haven't actually read Job, have you? Or did you somehow miss the parts where Satan walks up and down the earth, investigating things and then reporting them to God? Or how he has to ask God for permission before he starts smiting people?
Best secret polices of history?
keep it a /his/ quality discussion not a pol tier retarded shitfest
>Be George Washington

Say what you want about commies but comissars had awesome hats I couldn't follow a hatless man I mean what are you shitting me you look like a fucking pleb it's pretty much a fact that hats equal authority. Historical hats thread.
As I get older the more fucked up the whole commissar thing was. These were a bunch of 23-26 year olds radicalized by communist and executing their fellowman. Idk the older I get the more fucked up war seems. It blow mys mind when I hear about how young guys had a bunch of men under their command. Major Winters was only like 26 years old by the time of Bastonge.
Is it true that Portuguese or should I say "Moortuguese" people share 90% of their DNA with North Africans and are secretly Muslims?
So, how does /his/ divide the timeline of european history?
What are good books for a comprehensive introduction to the history of art? Particularly looking for something that stresses how the evolution of art fits into the larger philosophical development of European culture.
Bit offtopic, but I find Waterhouse to be one of the greats, and I feel like he never gets the attention he deserves, or maybe I just prefer his style of paintings over that of Picasso or Dali.
Do you know any historical moments where the bad guy won? Most of the times dictators etc. seem to be killed off eventually. Only ones I remember dying from old age while still being in power is Franco and Stalin.
Was the height of a man as glorified in older times, no matter what century, as it is nowadays? Did people offer you certain jobs, special military units or anything else? Did shorter people have it worse in any way, or was it completely irrelevant? If so, when did height become such an important thing in most societies nowadays?
>special military units
The First King of Prussia was obsessed with tall guardsmen. There was a height requirement to be a Prussian Guard to the King.
Also Grenadiers were big men since the belief being large cunts can throw grenades further. Eventually Grenade throwing was phased out and Grenadiers were just selected for their physical strength as they were shock troops and expected to ace in hand2hand combat.
Dump, Discuss, etc
I'll be posting some, feel free to contribute.
Is intellectual discourse really just shitposting using fancy words?
no it is fancyposting about useless shit
It's not a story Plato would tell you. It's a Cynic legend.
I love polish history. I've recently begun to write a fictional story based on early 13th century poland. Despite most modern poles being highly autistic, I think polish history is one of the greatest stories ever. How about some interesting historical facts about poland? I'd personally like some interesting info on 13th century polish principalities but anything goes really. I love it all.
>Polish nobility believed they were descended from migrating Iranians and convinced the Lithuanians that they were too.
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Living in Chicago, which has a higher polish population than poland, I can tell most poles apart from humans by the shape of their head. All poles I've met have had potato shaped heads.
Tell me, without using memes, why this isn't the greatest philosopher since the classical times.
It's obviously Descartes. Founder of modern philosophy, and creator of modern rationalism, the philosophical basis for the scientific method, which is the one objectively positive achievement of philosophy.
What does /his/ think of this show?
