what happens after death
What ethical theory should I follow and why /his/?
Pic very related.
Who was the greatest single combatant to ever live?
>Enforced islamization across Pakistan, introducing a blasphemy law and public whipping
>Armed radical militants (Hekmatyar's gang of thugs) and built an entire network of Jihadi schools across the region
>produced weapon-grade plutonium and uranium and lied to the international community about his country's nuclear program
Why did the US support this guy again?
Constantine Palaiologos... had a hard life
I don't see why people have a hard time accepting that a historical Jesus would most likely look like this rather than as some germanian or a sub-saharan African
Historical accuracy scares Christians.
Take for example that fact that all historians can agree on is that Jesus was baptised and crucified.
So, is it true? Could the Native Americans have banded together and kicked out the white devil?
I'm sure if reports came that native savages ransacked colonizers, the colonizers would send actual military to dispose of them
but if the natives were successful, the colonizers and would-be colonized would form a shaky pact.
I'm not sure if they'd be the super power they are today, but the native americans would be a global force nonetheless, should they survive
Unlikely but maybe, however it really doesn't matter, the natives hated each other and would've never been able to join together enough to chase the colonists out. If they did manage to chase the Euros away I'm not so sure that they could have become massively important nations but they definitely wouldn't be anything insignificant
Hey /his/ Whats the difference between Proto-Indoeuropeans and Indo europeans?
Has organized crime existed thru out human history?
So, tell me about tenochtitlan and why it's the best city ever.
>built in the middle of a lake on top of the water somehow
>most populated city during its time
>even Spaniards were amazed by its magnificence
>"When we saw so many cities and villages built in the water and other great towns on dry land we were amazed and said that it was like the enchantments (...) on account of the great towers...

Tenochtitlan was cleaner and more populous than London at the same time period, they also had chinampas which were floating gardens that could yield up to 7 harvests per year.
They also came up with the idea of transporting food and materials via canals (something only until the industrial revolution was implemented in Europe) which is why they never really had the need of beasts of burden and wheels.
Why did Japan attack the US in Pearl Harbor?
What was the point? Why not simply continue conquering china and stuff?
They needed oil. Modern militaries need oil. America was by in large the leading supplier of oil. When America stopped selling oil to Japan they were fucked. Only two places in the area had oil, Indonesia (Dutch owned which will protected by America and Britain) and Siberia which will lead to the Soviets kicking their shit in and invading China directly. So they need to fight America to get their oil back to continue invading China and the rest of Asia. So they made the best...

Also, they hoped the Americans wouldn't go total war, but would be afraid to commit to massive retaliation. They might have known that they would lose an all-out Pacific war in the end, but were hoping that the US would be afraid of the potential losses of such a war, even if they were victorious.
>let them eat cake
What did she mean by this?
I always find interesting the history and story behind how places, cities and countries got their name.
What are the histories behind various countries and places names?
I'll start with The United States of America. America was the continent's name the country was in, names after an explorer. After several colonial states united and became the country called The United States of America.
I'm from the UK
The UK is actually called the United Kingdom, and it's called that because it is one kingdom that has united several regions. We call it UK because calling it the United Kingdom is long.
Does anyone have the rare pee pee poo poo of the Hannibal Barca Pepe standing in front of a casualty list of the Battle of Canae?
Also, Carthage general, I suppose. I find Carthage one of the most fascinating of the ancient civilizations. Would have been interesting if Rome and Carthage had both survived the Punic Wars and went on to become rival superpowers for millennia
>Would have been interesting if Rome and Carthage had both survived the Punic Wars and went on to become rival superpowers for millennia
Basically the UUSR and USA except instead of the Pacific as a boarder it's the Med
And it would have culminated in an ancient WWIII around 400-500 AD when both empires were growing weak due to corruption and needed one last hurrah to restore their glory.
God damn that would have been an historian's wet dream. At least to me it would have been
Furthermore, I believe Carthage must be destroyed, to be honest
Were dogs ever used in warfare, or wolves. I would think they would make good anti cavalry troops. Also general animals in warfare thread
