This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

Who draw this?
Pincer attack with Japan could have defeated Soviet Union but Japs were retards and Germany could still get nuked by Yanks.
Best Chance of winning would be to befriend Stalin and abstain from attacking USSR. If they planned to attck them why give them half of Poland?
Making Japan not bring the US into it
Investing early on in some decent landing craft so they could invade Britain
Don’t attack Stalin until the situation in the West is fully under control
by winning ww1, thus not starting ww2. aka kaiserreich
>>not losing, staying the hegemon of Europe
by not invading the USSR and not declaring war on the US
Not possible either, Germany's entire economic revival worked around building a massive arms industry. Also, they went into debt while doing it hoping to pay it using spoils of war

But it would have resulted in a better world since most other countries didn't have to launch nukes. It would have been a white-free world.

>discarding data because of sample size in favor of preconceived ideas without data at all

And if the data doesn't demonstrate a general case it proves at least that regular warfare can exist in hunter-gatherer societies.

The idea that these cases are aberrations doesn't pass occam's razor.

>dogs bond to us at least 60,000 years ago and offer us thousands of years of protection and companionship
>repay them by degenerating their species into a hellish shell of its former self

I blame women, their incessant need to make things cute created rat dogs
I doubt that the trend was instigated by women but this desire that you mentioned no doubt increasingly exacerbates it. Every women whom I've discussed to any degree the degeneration of animal breeding has ended their argument by saying "but they're cute..."
I blame white males and their tendency to bitch about everyone else before themselves
Are you implying I’m wh*te?

How long does the idea of Pan-Europeanism exist? Has there ever actually been any real sense of European identity beyond being white and Christian?
The Roman empire gets mentioned by EU federalists, but it's a pretty weak claim considering the Romans thought of Africa and Egypt as more civilized and integral to their empire than Gaul or Dacia

Like >>5830622 mentioned, it's really mostly one of Wilson's pet projects than one with a proper historical basis. Even old "international" political movements, like the Mazzini's Giovine Europa, were more of a response to European absolutism and occupation by other (European) countries than a pan-European movement. Napoleonic Europe came close, though, and revolutionised the means of government within the occupied countries.

The justification for a pan-Europeanism is really more economic than cultural nowadays. It was a (legitimate) method for smaller, more vulnerable European countries to avoid being at the economic and political mercy of the US or the Soviet Union (probably countries like China nowadays) without fading into irrelevance.

>CHG was 0% ANE to begin with, at least the J1 and J2 guys weren't.

It's a mystery how exctly CHG formed and from what but CHG is like ~60-70% ANE-related+25-30%% basal eursian in monte. Although based on its PCA position ANE that went into CHG was admixed with a different type of mongoloid than Siberian ANEs. ANE/EHG is Amerindian shifted whereas CHG is shifted towards East Asians proper (but is admixed with something not closely related to modern east asians).

>CHG itself is a mixture of ANE and Basal

Yes but their ANE related ancestries were different.
>ABA population

What is that?
>Sredny-Stog don't cluster with Yamna

Do you have any PCA with them?
What study?
SHGs were deemed that they do not contribute to modern populations. Moderns got it from the EHG.

>Damnatio memoriae is a modern Latin phrase meaning "condemnation of memory", i.e., that a person is to be excluded from official accounts. There are and have been many routes to damnatio, including the destruction of depictions, the removal of names from inscriptions and documents, and even large-scale rewritings of history.

>It was a form of dishonor that could be passed by the Roman Senate on traitors or others who brought discredit to the Roman State.[citation needed] The term can be applied to other instances of official scrubbing; the practice is seen as long ago as the reign of the Egyptian pharaoh Hatshepsut in the fourteenth century BC.

>historical accounts might be biased
wow, what a revelation

The fact the Romans admit it and had to go through a little procedure to do so shows they were exceptionally devoted to the truth compared to their peers that would just fudge records at will and never admit it.

>Geneticist and anthropologists previously suspected that ancient Africans domesticated cattle native to the African continent nearly 10,000 years ago. Now, a team of University of Missouri researchers has completed the genetic history of 134 cattle breeds from around the world. In the process of completing this history, they found that ancient domesticated African cattle originated in the "Fertile Crescent," a region that covered modern day Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Israel.

Except that's what Christianity was like under the Roman Empire. The Pope only became relevant after the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the Catholic-Orthodox schism was mostly about the pope and Eastern Emperor fighting over who should be the leader of Christendom.

Christianity was adapted to fit Roman needs, and as such reinforced the Emperors rule and the Roman legal system.

The Justinian Code is a good example of this.
