why do people say Jesus looked like that ? what are the basises for these assumptions ?

Then you havent looked in to it properly. Its not a coincidence that almost all scholars are sure of his existence. Examine their claims and the historical data for yourself. Christ mythicism is a really fringe theory in the light of the evidence.
>What makes a statue of an ancient ruler "idealized"
romans and greeks scultptors obsessed with depicting human perfection. All of their statues were überchads and ultra stacies. You can't find a single roman or greek statue that deliberately made the depicted person ugly. 17th century european painting is another movement in which realism was more important.

You were saying?
I mean there was definitely some guesswork involved but he very likely looked roughly like that. Notice in any pre-modern area travel was pretty difficult and most people in a specific area looked pretty similar to each other
It’s a facial reconstruction of an average man living in that area, “Jesus” is just something media dubbed it

why are there so many ottoman apologists on /his/?
70 replies and 13 images omitted. Click here to view.
Because it's an easy contrarian opinion to have.
Ottomans get too much unjustified hate from the right (/pol/ type), and Serbs are very hard to like.
With this its easy to be a contrarian in 4chan just by liking the Ottomans.
I personally have a weird facination with the habsbourg-Ottoman wars
They have no actual identity.

Wow, Anon! I can’t figure it out either
That particular type of blue eyes comes from Waardensburg Syndrome or related genetic anomaly.
he is right tho
Slavic is probably most Aryan from European branch
take under consideration that pie waves were mixing and the most western one were already muddied by both bastard blood like children who speak their mothers languages
Or they were simply mixed out. Whoever wrote this is retarded. But then again there's the Indra poems.

It's in the Qur'an and it's about Zaynab bint Jahsh. Her husband's name is spelled Zeid or Zayd. This translation of Saint John of Damascus' Greek commentary uses Zeid. Saint John of Damascus read the Qur'an not the hadith.

Egypt has continuously been ruled by foreign conqueror invaders for 2,300 years with not a single native Egyptian ruling themselves for that time. From 343 BC since the Achaemenid Persians invaded and conquered Egypt to Alexander the Great, Macedonian Ptolemys, Romans, Zenobia, Eastern Romans, Turkic Tulunids, Berbers Armenian Sudanese in the Fatimids, Kurdish Ayyubids, Turkic Kipchak Bahri Mamluks, Circassian Burji Mamluks, Ottoman Turks, Abkhaz Mamluk Ali Bey al -Kabir, Napoleon, Albanian Muhammad Ali dynasty and the British until the Albanians were overthrown and Egypt was established as a republic in 1953 CE. Every single one of those people were foreign invaders who violently conquered Egypt.

Egypt never had the massive population of China. China outnumbered everyone but still got raped and enslaved.
Egypt had a massive population compared to almost all of it's invaders. It's neighbors populations are and were over ten times or a hundred times smaller. Egyptians outnumbered Macedonians, Ayyubids, Tulunid, Kipchak and Circassian Mamluks, Napoleon, and the Albanians by a 10000:1 ratio or even more. It's population was significantly higher than everyone else it bordered and neighbored because of the Nile river. Egypt was invaded, enslaved, and raped by a ruling caste of exclusively foreign male military elites for over a continuous two millenia with no Egyptian input or control over military or civilian state matters. There were no Macedonian, Persian, Albanian commoner or civilian women, only the royalty brought their wives, and very few Mamluk Turkic and Circassian women and they were restricted to marrying other Turks and Circassians. There was a continuous input of almost exclusively invading foreign paternal male genetics into Egypt. The common Ptolemy Macedonian Greek, Galtian Celt mercenary, and Mamluk Kipchak Turkic and Circassian troops all had Egyptian wives and concubines.
What I find amazing is that a small group of "uncivilized barbarians" like the Manchus conquered the most populous country in the world and literally imposed their will upon the entire Chinese population for centuries. The fact that they were able to force the LARGEST population in the world to shave their heads for centuries is nothing short of amazing.
Every single Egyptian man has had their foreskin on their penis cut off for over a millenia because of invaders imposing their religion and larp as their rapists. And they continue to cut their foreskins off every day in accordance with the religion the rapist invaders forced on them. Some even have their clitorises cut off for their conquerors' religion
You are really dumb. The Egyptians were the first to ever practice circumcision in history.

And to think that all those years ago I thought that the silly shaved heads in Kung Fu movies were a Chinese culture. Imagine my surprise to learn that it was imposed upon the Chinese population by foreign conquerors as a symbol of servitude.

peruvian intellectuals

I don't understand big words and fancy talk, so could someone sum up Soren Kierkegaard's philosophy in a greentext format or something like that?

Recently, there's been some people talking about the relationship between polygamy and war, and a often used example is ISIS, which is basically a bunch of incels who either slave women as a prize for winning the war, or get virgins in heaven as a prize for dying in the war.

Now my question: considering wars and polygamy were always prevalent in most societies, and also that many servants were made into eunuchs, and many soldiers were lifelong mercenaries who had no family (a prevalent theme in Romance of the Three Kingdoms), how much of the population throughout history were incels?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
It depends on the era. In hunter gatherer times most men were incels. But you had tribes which practiced a more monogamous culture.

In settled agriculture even the worst subhuman incels could get married, wives were easily provided by the rural community. Women were expected to get married and form families.

Nowadays the subhumans and even average people are incels because of technology and post modern urban culture which promotes hyper sexual lifestyles without procreating
If you want a more recent example, look at uniparental markers in Latin America (hint: the last 500 years or so were not a good time to be an Amerindian male).
Taken from somewhere on the Interwebz: "Roy F. Baumeister reported to the APA a few years ago that, while 80% of the women who have ever lived reproduced, only 40% of human males who have have ever tread the earth managed to reproduce. So, it is fair to assume that large numbers of non-alpha males died never having had sex with a woman."

That doesn't necessarily mean large numbers of sexually mature men died without sex. They could have daughter descendants and their sons were killed in prehistoric genocides before reaching sexual maturity. The data you posted is used by incels to justify their shitty attitudes.

My friend said he could name 5 American generals from WW2 alone that are better than Washington; is that true?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Yes. Washington was a brainlet, he could only win against sleeping germans.
I'd agree. His W/L record isn't golden and the consensus is that his greatest contribution was morale and inspiration.

Yeah, Washington isn't really known as a great strategic general (though he certainly wasn't bad). He functioned more as a sheer force of personality keeping the continental army together.
Considering military strategy evolved in those 200 years, yes he's right
Eisenhower, Marshall... Clark? Bradley? Patton? MacArthur?

I think given the circumstances of the Revolution the first two would be just as if not more competent in organizing, fighting, and inspiring. The rest I am not sure about.

Not even /pol/tards dispute that Hitler had gone mad by the final year of his life.
How can it be historically accurate if Hitler died in Argentina?
He's a lich
