Hypothetically, if the Dacian religion survived to today. Would there be people getting killed to send a message to Zalmoxis?

It would be voluntary for all involved I assume. So is there really an argument to be made against it?
>Would there be people getting killed to send a message to Zalmoxis?
Fucking keeeeeek

Only of in a country where its the biggest religion and has been since forever. So only in an alt-history Romania. Maybe.

Did the Greeks copy the story of Samson from Tanakh and turned Samson into Herakles?

There are many similarities

>Both were born in odd circumstances
A trope used all the time in mythology, and numerous times both in the bible and Greek fables
>Both were super strong
Again, that's just the trope of these stories. There's no real connection. It's like asking if Zeus is a copy of Susanoo-no-Mikoto, simply because they are both gods and gods of thunder who have problems with their god siblings
>Both face a series of ordeals
Or what is called a story
>Both died because of women
This is the only real similarity but, they are very different how they meet their end, you can't chalk it up to anything but coincidence.
Ironic that Palestinians try to claim their right to the area by saying the Philistines were an ancient Arabic tribe.
no, hercules was inspired by the nephilim of the preflood world
the ancestor of the greeks, yawan, learned of these half demon creaturres from his father japheth, and thus with time the story of these giants got confused and we now have the demigod myths
Samson died because he pulled down a temple, not because his wife betrayed him. He chose to die there.
Didn't Samson have the whole hair gimmick tho.

A number of twin studies have found that the heritability of political attitudes is generally of a similar magnitude to the heritability of other behavioral traits.

Your thoughts on such findings? Do you have similar political views to your parents and siblings? What might a confirmed heritability of ~0.5 for broad political attitudes mean for the future of policy and society?

Personally, my views varied a lot during adolescence (I had communist friends), but now I'm more center-right on most issues, which roughly comports with the orientation of my close relatives.

Why did Ancient people never visit America?

How hard could it have been? The Atlantic isn't even that huge.

Were they literally retarded?

Why didn't they settle then?
"scholars who reject even the possibility of Atlantic voyages in antiquity seem" to be accepting a myth promulgated by the Phoenicians that the Atlantic was inherently impassable with the seafaring technology of the period.[2]


>Numismatic evidence favoring the hypothesis of a Carthaginian presence in North America has recently come to light. The evidence is twofold. The first piece of evidence consists of a particular group of early Carthaginian gold coins (caIled staters) that bear a map (derived from modified Punic letters) showing both the Old World and the New World. Going from east to west, the maps show India, the south coast ofEurope above Sardinia and Sicily, and America.


fuck off and never post on this board again no argument shitter
a quote from D.H. Kelley, earlier a critic of the findings of ancient Celtic scripts in the New World, in which he recants. “I have no personal doubts that some of the inscriptions which have been reported [in the Americas] are genuine Celtic ogham. [...] Despite my occasional harsh criticism of Fell's treatment of individual inscriptions, it should be recognized that without Fell's work there would be no [North American] ogham problem to perplex us. We need to ask not only what Fell has done wrong in his epigraphy, but also where we have gone wrong as archaeologists in not recognizing such an extensive European presence in the New World. (Kelley, Spring 1990)

Traces of coca and nicotine found in some Egyptian mummies have led to speculation that Ancient Egyptians may have traveled to the New World. The initial discovery was made by a German toxicologist, Svetlana Balabanova, after examining the mummy of a female priestess called Henut Taui. Follow-up tests of the hair shaft, performed to rule out contamination, gave the same results.
Is this the guy who claimed that some Phoenician coins supposedly depict the American continent?
And nobody knew. It took a fuck ton of balls, or desperation, to even attempt a voyage like that. Since as far as they know there might not be anything out there, the ocean might be endless.You've basically killed yourself trying to sail out that way, let alone the real dangers that might actually kill you

When did you realize that history is nothing more than a school for sadists?
80% of this board is vapid bickering about which catastrophe or senseless act of bloodshed was most "based."
Is there anything more disgusting than sallow little creatures illuminated by the pale glow of a monitor cackling wildly as they revel in the tragedies of history?
Because all the blood is "exciting."
Then let it be your own.

>When you judge others, you’re only judging yourself.
13 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
He doesn't mean project literal particles.
Morality is abstract, so is judgement, and so is character, you judging someone's character based on your set of morals only defines what kind of person you are, not them, because they can't feel you judging them, they are only themselves being themselves, while you judging them defines what kind of person you are as your judgements might be meaningless and shallow or correct and knowledgable. Therefore by judging others in a particular way, shows what kind of person you are, meaning you judge yourself.
Shut up kike.
Let’s get real.
Neuroscience says you’re just an imprint of your environment. Whatever the worst insult or compliment you can thing of represents only you ultimately. The human brain is a closed circuit system.
Einstein was a hypocrite. Just check out his quote on racism.
Meaning judging others is judging yourself.
