Why were the British so much blessed with great theologians and churches?

I can't think of any great American theologian/preacher except Jonathan Edwards

Is post-war Leni Riefenstahl the greatest example of pussy pass in history?
Do you think a male director who worshipped and idolized Hitler, made propaganda movies for Goebbels, personally knew both of them, and picked concentration camp inmates as movie extras would get away with it by just saying 'lol i didn't know!'

What base aspect of human nature has the most negative impact on the the future of our species?
31 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
The greed of leaders and the apathy of the people.
Yeah those are good ones, I'd also propose maybe fanaticism and the desire to mold into groups and make any group one is a part of basically a religion one is everlastingly loyal to.
Obsession with sex in men and sociopathic tendencies in women.
Perhaps blind following.
Unwillingness to sacrifice. We could be so much farther ahead if people could just think in the long term.

Study on IQ predicting SNP's across races
Average for East Asians: 0.72
Average for Hispanics: 0.65
Average for Whites: 0.63
Average for Indians: 0.59
Average for Blacks: 0.48

What I find the most interesting is that the most native american country, Peru, scores almost as high as East Asians with 0.69, while Mexico and Colombia which are more mestizo score around .64/.65, US whites score .62, and Spaniards score .60 (lowest european score)
This would imply that the spanish genetics are dragging the native american potential on hispanics, asuming that peruvians are 30% spanish 70% native that would mean that a true native american score would be around the .73, among the highest scoring asian countries

They are protected by nature.

To the East, the Andes mountains
To the West, the Pacific ocean
To the North, the Atacama desert, the most arid desert in the world
To the South, the Patagonian fjords

To invade Chile would be the most retarded decision ever, you can blockade the by sea, but their coast is too large, they have ports in the most nothern part and the most southern part.

I don't know about how efficient their internal logistics/transportation going north-south and viceversa, but that would be another advantage if they have it/develop it

>tfw no results for omnicient
Idiot, your brain has been rotted by semitic devilry.
they did tho, Mithras got so popular because it still allowed Paganism and the various old traditions they loved. Mithras worship also followed the idea of one Almighty. That certainly came from mental gymnastics that they performed to keep their old ways alive while rejecting the Truth of Christ. You gotta remember that Christianity and to an even greater extent Islam under Muhammad - PBUH - were both designed to be powerful from the base up. Ancient people listened to all this evidence that they carried. Both of those religions from their inception were granted the power to sweep aside thousands of years of polytheistic beliefs within a generation.

To OP's point, they do. And it is perfectly believable. We cannot possibly fathom being an infinite being with limitless knowledge, power, and ability. If God had the ability to snap His fingers and create the universe that we take for granted around us... He certainly could afford to manifest as different energies and entities. I know people like to use the three phases of matter as an example, but that's just our silly mortal minds trying to throw a tangible science onto something immortal and intangible.

If we go last two digits like OP then U-8 was a training boat. Not a single instance of combat, scuttled after the war.
If we do last 3 digits then U-508 operated until ‘43 when a USN Liberator sank it with all hands after 6 patrols, sinking 14 ships

A legitimate academic journal actually published an article about the /AskHistorian jannies.

> "I run the world's largest historical outreach project and it's on a cesspool of a website." Moderating a Public Scholarship Site on Reddit: A Case Study of r/AskHistorians

Online communities provide important functions in their participants' lives, from providing spaces to discuss topics of interest to supporting the development of close, personal relationships. Volunteer moderators play key roles in maintaining these spaces, such as creating and enforcing rules and modeling normative behavior. While these users play important governance roles in online spaces, less is known about how the work they do is impacted by platform design and culture. r/AskHistorians, a Reddit-based question and answer forum dedicated to providing users with academic-level answers to questions about history, provides an interesting case study on the impact of design and culture because of its unique rules and their strict enforcement by moderators. In this article I use interviews with r/AskHistorians moderators and community members, observation, and the full comment log of a highly upvoted thread to describe the impact of Reddit's design and culture on moderation work. Results show that visible moderation work that is often interpreted as censorship, and the default masculine whiteness of Reddit create challenges for moderators who use the subreddit as a public history site. Nonetheless, r/AskHistorians moderators have carved a space on Reddit where, through their public scholarship work, the community serves as a model for combating misinformation by building trust in academic processes.

>I think a mod called "Zhukov" trawled through my post history to do a character attack as well.
There's something wonderfully ironic about these people doing exactly that and then criticizing Israel's background checks as racist/bigoted.

That being said, is there any study on how moderation influences internet communities? It could be a very interesting subject.

I was gonna talk about that one (the author is named Sylvain though). It was also surprising to learn how much the byzantine teaching curriculum was reliant on the knowledge of the ancients, especially because of the "Dark Ages" myth.

To be fair, it was one of the tallest in the world when it was built, but that was in the late 1800s so there's been plenty of time for new statues with more modern technology to overtake it.

>I saw the Rusiyyah when they had arrived on their trading expedition and had disembarked at the River Atil. I have never seen more perfect physiques than theirs—they are like palm trees, are fair and reddish, and do not wear the qurctaq or the caftan. The man wears a cloak with which he covers one half of his body, leaving one of his arms uncovered. Every one of them carries an axe, a sword and a dagger and is never without all of that which we have mentioned.

>Their swords are of the Frankish variety, with broad, ridged blades. Each man, from the tip of his toes to his neck, is covered in dark-green lines, pictures and such like. Each woman has, on her breast, a small disc, tied around her neck, made of either iron, silver, copper or gold, in relation to her husband's financial and social worth. Each disc has a ring to which a dagger is attached, also lying on her breast. Around their necks they wear bands of gold and silver. Whenever a man's wealth reaches ten thousand dirhams, he has a band made for his wife; if it reaches twenty thousand dirhams, he has two bands made for her—for every ten thousand more, he gives another band to his wife. Sometimes one woman may wear many bands around her neck.
