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.

the amount of mental gymnastics people will go through just to avoid the fact that blacks just aren't very smart is wild. Do you just not believe in darwinism?

Environments where its advantageous to have certain traits are more likely to produce those traits. You have high IQ races stemming from complex societies where, say, having an intuitive understanding of math helps when trading and paying taxes for example.

I've never seen IQ scores for australian abos but I know for a fact they have low IQs because there's just no need for it from a biological point of view. It would go against basic darwinistic principles.
Trading across the Sahara was an arduous journey, and even merchants ran the risk of their own caravans dying, so I don’t think merchants would be bringing along fleets of hungry and thirsty horses across a desert the size of the USA.
>What do you mean? How could they domesticate a horse that doesn't exist on their continent?
They used horses that were already domesticated. They literally witnessed Western settlers using it for riding and work. How is that comparable in any way whatsoever to prehistoric African tribes encountering a wild zebra?

>They could've had the same thought process that led people in Eurasia to domesticate the horse or cattle or anything else
Horses in Eurasia evolved in a place with few predators and humans in vast lush steppes. They were far easier pickings
Well somehow they got down there. Horses have been in subsaharan Africa for a while now

There also the separatism and self-glorification that the evil and those who follow their doctrine/dharma do, as mentioned in the Quran
He was wrong, obviously. It should be obvious even then.

If someone is a murderer, should we or do we allow them to continue freely murdering more people as a way of forgiveness? No, of course not. Forgiving a person for committing murder does not mean you are going to approve of the act of murder itself. But this is exactly what the sodomites want. The sodomites truly are the lowest of the low, and it's a disgrace to even talk about the evil acts of those men.

I’ll never understand genetic purists when it comes to Natives and Euros mixing. Most of South America also has African ancestry than never gets taken into account. The ones “Whites” hate are mostly always “Native” majority. You can tell the difference between a Caucasian Latin American and a majority native. Plenty of Americans have mixed native ancestry and nobody accuses them of being culturally different.
Funny but Hispanics and Whites intermarry at similar rates.
I have no problem with that but Americans still call me Latino and Hispanic despite not speaking Spanish and having an American father.

Despite our major differences, I think one think both Catholics and Orthodox can agree on is that Protestants are basically secularists borderline atheists.

Also what is this fucking cat lady bitch larping about. She doesn't understand astrology because, news flash, nobody does. That technique - in the Ellulian sense - has been lost, and in our postmodern materialism is either looked at like it's astronomy's retarded lesbian stepgrandmother or is appropriated by cherrypicking syncretic new-agers for aesthetic purpose. It's like alchemy - we don't even really know what the point was, so an overly literal interpretation of the symbols has led to scorn on one materialist side and complete fantasy on the pseudospiritual side. Fuck this dumb fake librarian cunt, Plato was right, women were a mistake

Historically Black churches are typically Evangelical Christians in terms of theology and social attitudes but they are often separated out from White Evangelicals because they have different political beliefs. Mainly-- Black Prots think its good to help the poor (second only to Buddhists), other Evangelicals think its bad to help the poor (second only to Mormons). This ripples out into voting patterns

If you aren't in communion with the Pope you have no room to say that other people "aren't Catholic". At least be consistent.

you assume neanderthal females resisted.

There is not Neanderthal Y or MtDNA in humans, meaning it was exclusively Neanderthal male, human female, halfbreed daughter that reproduced.
>There is not Neanderthal Y or MtDNA in humans
so neither maternal nor paternal lineage?
>meaning it was exclusively Neanderthal male, human female
the lack of Y would mean the exact opposite. why are you making up shit?
males become stronger and females weaker when a rape option is on the menu

Is it safe to assume that Germany and Italy would return to a basic agrarian way of life if the Nazis and fascists were to win World War I with the appeal they made to the Middle Ages rather than modernism?
I assume you mean WW2. Anyway, the answer is no. Can't have an agrarian society if all your fields are irradiated.
Yes, sorry that was a typo.
No. Industry and industrialization were important parts of both regimes. The Nazis had plans (albeit no concrete ones to my knowledge) to establish Wehrbauern (defensive peasants) in Eastern Europe once the Final Victory was achieved. The concept of the Wehrbauer has its origins in the early middle ages and those were farmers who were tasked with defensive and delaying actions against enemy incursions to win time for the actual mobilization effort. As such those Wehrbauern often has special rights like a complete exemption from taxes or larger estates. The Nazi concept of the Wehrbauern was quite similar in that regard as they should defend the eastern border of the Reich against light incursions and serve as an early warning system and defensive bulwark against stronger forces.
No, fascism is a modernist ideology
No. Mussi Mussi wanted an industrialized country and colonies to provide raw materials and food

Throughout history, why were feminine men more stigmatized than masculine women? Aren’t they committing the same social and moral transgressions?

How can any Christian with an IQ above room temperature reconcile with the fact that you proclaim your god is "all loving", yet condemns those who do not worship him to a plane of existence of eternal torment and damnation, even if they have not heard of Jesus Christ?

That he will "forgive you for your sins!" but supposedly banishes you to a burning pit for all eternal for getting ass-fucked?

That you must hate your family, or you not be accepted into the kingdom of heaven?

That he himself calls himself a jealous god and calls himself "vengeful" and "strong in wrath"?

There seems to be a significant amount of cognitive dissonance at work here, because every single "actual" Christian I know or who I have talked to says this to me all the time, that he loves you, and cares for you...Right now, the ancient Roman gods seem more loving than he does.

>an all-good creation would not create beings that are prone to evil.
Evil in this context is the privation of good. And according to the Bible there is only one good, and that is God. (Matthew 19:17)

>and you cannot have free will if your actions are known before-hand.
Yes you can. How does that even make sense to say you can't?
>Why should I consider your book?
According to OP's question, he's asking Christians to explain their beliefs. So of course I would show him what the Bible says about something.
>Why should I consider your book? It was written by men, not god.
According to Christians, the Bible is inspired by the Lord, who is our only Lord God.
Read the Gospels moron

What's wrong with Africans? Why did it take a people from across the entire ocean to colonize an island right off of their coast?

Continental Africa has very difficult waters and it took the Europeans hundreds of years (and incredible funding from the Portugese/Spanish crown) before they managed to build ships that could travel the African coast

And Arabs got their knowledge from Indians
Guess where subsaharan Africans got their knowledge from? Nowhere.

It's the same debate as to why North American natives couldnt build any civilizations while Central American Indians built clean cities that could house millions.
Autosomal DNA is crazy. You can be a complete foreigner and your grandkids will look like natives.
why didn't the polynesians colonize australia
They didn't really colonize anything but empty and low population islands. More or less their game plan was to avoid other people and run when they were found. Fiji used to be 100% inhabited by them alone but they surrendered it or got killed off there so the locals look quite different now.
Some Aboriginals seem to have their genes, so they probably tried. Or at least they landed there and mixed with them.

made up terms

historically women started being married off when they had their first period, sometimes before as betrothal.
Kids are retarded and have no money or freedom, which is easy to exploit. It's especially easy when pedos go for the ones from broken homes, which is who they usually target because they're predators looking for easy prey. Like that wormy kike Jared Fogle for example. That's what all predators want to do and would do if they could, they just thankfully lack the ability.
what's the matter dude, did your uncle molest you?
>they hated him because he said the truth

You can actually still do that TODAY if you have her parents' permission, happens all the time in fundamental religious communities; young girls are betrothed to men. But pedofags would never get that because they're creepy retarded losers, hence the seethe. No parent would marry their daughter to you in a million years. Wouldn't happen back then either, you're not nobility. Just your fantasy.
Jared Fogle tried to finger my bum hole. I am justifiably upset about it.

How did Americans go from waging a war on Islam to electing some black Arab guy called Hussein Osama? Its like if after WW2, the USA or British elected some German guy called Hilter.
He kept the American war machine cranking and opened up multiple new conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa.

Neoliberals just found out you can't criticize him because he's a nigger.
