Say a true fact about history doesn't have to be special I'll start

>true fact about history
History is not composed of truth or facts but wie es eigentlich gewesen, to show the past essentially as it happened. To show, not truth, and as it happened in its own terms, through the attempt to be essential about the past, from the past's own sources.
Most people don't understand this not particularly special aspect of the discipline.
Blue collar ignoramus here. Recently disgusted by how little I read, but I've always preferred books about history to fictional literature. Is there a list of /his/ essential books? I want to buy 5 books while there's still holiday sales going on all over the place. I've heard Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich by Sherer is very good and respected.

What the fuck happened?
Wonder how Europe is going to look in 15 to 20 years with all the middle eastern refugees they've taken in. I don't think it's so much they they are Muslims, but more the combination of coming from a war torn country + Muslim beliefs that is going to cause a fuck load of problems.
/his/, can you recommend me any solid books about the history of Knights, especially during the Early and High Middle Ages? Looking for Anglo-French books, but anything on Italy would be pretty cool too.
Alternatively, books on the overall nature of war from the Norman Invasions of Sicily and England to the Hundred Years' War.
Richard Barber has various jobs about knights and chivalry.
Jean Flori has another easily readable book in the subject.
Georges Duby has an small article about about the young and the chivalry society that its really funny and interesting to read.
Not really. There was cavalry, but previously this was mostly light cav that used javelins. IIRC the Normans largely defined the role in the 11th Century, with the Norman cavalry deciding to hang onto their spears in Hastings instead of tossing them.
Is a degree in Classics the way to go?
Half of my university's political science/history courses are about muh colonialism and immigration.
A degree not in history would be preferable, unless you are aspiring to be the assistant manager at Starbuck's.
Unless you're doing history for pre-law you're probably fucked.
But yeah that said my concentration is in classical studies. Anything else and you're going to hear endless leftist white guilt and self-flagellation.
Ah, then yes. Do classics. Like I said, most other histories will be invaded with SJWs doing it for a humanities credit and spewing their toxic white self-hate. However studying classical civilizations tends to scare them away so you'll be fine

There is no true universal or objective morality.
Prove me wrong.
Protip: you can't.
Why do people still say "modern day" instead of saying "post-modern day" or "contemporary day"?
Modern being used to describe the present day makes sense. It's terms like "post-modern" that don't (at least without an external reference to what period or movement they are actually refering to).
It would appear Islam forbids animation with some exception. To anime fans who have wondered about whether or not anime is forbidden in Islam, here is one place to clarify.

Is Judas in hell according to christians? I don't think he should be seeing how he repented.
>if this guy was proclaimed a saint
Judas is probably fucking some boys in catholic heaven.
Not according to many Christians. After all, without Judas there could have been no salvation of man. He was integral to God's plan. The more interesting question is whether or not Judas had free will.
None of us have free will. And this isn't because of God, it's because we have too many factors in life that make the notion of being completley free of doing whatever one so desires, completley ridiculous.
I didn't even choose to be born.

>tfw christianity destroyed greek culture
>not realizing Christianity is a product of Greek culture
From NT until early Middle Ages Greek was the language of Christianity, Greek philosophy was used as the basis for Christian Theology and Greek art as the basis for traditional Christian Art.
