How did 900 Spaniards defeat 100,000 Aztecs?
103 replies and 12 images omitted. Click here to view.

He just types a lot of bullshit. The little tiny dot is Tlaxaca, Cortez’s ally The rest of the map is the Aztec Empire.
Look at that even tinier "dot" where tenochtitlan is... that's where the vast majority of the aztecs who faught the spaniards lived. The rest of those states were likely glad to be rid of the aztecs and did not wish to help either side.

Of course

India was massively overpopulated in 500 BC

We shouldnt be eating any animals, we can get the protein we need from bugs. And no one likes bugs so there shouldnt be any issues.
You can't really milk a dog or a cat
wrong on all accounts. Pigs do hunt for food, pigs compete with humans for food, they eat the same things we do. They weren't kept in the middle east because they are fucking terrible in hot dry weather. Have you ever eaten dog? How do you know it tastes bad? on the same account have you ever eaten a wild boar?

What modern population do they most resemble today? Nordics? Churkas? Persians? Pashtun? Tajiks?
23 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Central Russia is the region around Moscow.
They don't really look anything like Persians.
Why isn't that so obvious to people in the first place? Europe in the third millenium BC and Iran in the second millenium BC should've been drastically different in terms of the population density. There was no way Iran or India could've inherited the share of the steppe ancestry that was inhereted by Europe.

is the key phrase here, ww1 was the first time we got really involved. spain had been a second rate power for 200 years at that point and all the fighting was done in the caribbean and philippines, hardly places of any real importance to the other powers. you are right that the spanish american war was important to the US but the outcome was not unsurprising to the top tier of european states

Yeah pretty much. Even Canada, which liked being part of the British Empire, got to leave.
In fairness France is like the 2nd most meddling country in the world when it comes to affairs outside its borders, second of course to the US.

>Jesus never existed
What's the origin of that idea?
Are they're any contemporary accounts of Jesus in the first century?
Kinda? They all are from like 30-50 years after he died and are mostly secondhand accounts but hey, that's not too bad from the standard of the time when it came to historical records.
He's an amalgamation of messiah cult prophets.
Also, you know you could put a little more effort into your posts than just buzzwords and wojaks, I'm sure plenty of people would love to discuss your topics on pykrete and the historic validity of jesus.

>Why Americans obsess over race/ancestors
in a diverse society you realize that the person you are talking to is not like yourself. In a homogenous society that extra layer is gone so you can focus on more substantive things. Also ancestry is important

>Lost respect
Modern day soldiers get way more respect than old-times soldiers ever did. There is a reason why, in the past, governments often had to force people to join the army, and many still do.

just the ruling class
what did you think "at least partially" meant?

So the guy being executed in this photo wasn't even a legitimate combatant? He was some random serial killer/child-murderer who was using the Viet Cong as a cover to slit children's throats? Why isn't this fact better-known? Everything I can find says that he was summarily executed for murdering multiple children in Saigon, not for anything related to legitimate wartime activities.

Nah, I think it was the crisis that had only 6 media companies end up owning everything.
and I support
Journalists were trash then and they’re trash now. I would happily live in a more authoritarian state if it meant that all journalists were purged. Thing of me like a guy in communist Romania or Mongolia after the bolshies sent in their hatchet men to establish the regimes. Would I care about needing to make an alliance with Stalin to purge them? No. I would happily fight for the American empire if every journalist could be strapped to the front of the armour as a meat shield.
The journalist and TV host Phil Donahue was actually fired by the "liberal" TV network MSNBC for opposing the invasion of Iraq. And his colleagues were pretty much silent on the matter.

Yes, because some lines from a lowly journalist in some magazine make up the essence of Nazi Ideology(TM).

The world once looked like an alien planet :o
20 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
All of our ideas of alien life are just based on shit we already have or have had on earth. Gray aliens that are pretty much just abstracted humans. Squid-like aliens that are just based on our cephalopods. Insectoids that are based on our insects, etc etc. In reality, we likely cannot comprehend what actual alien life would look like, plant or otherwise, having evolved under conditions different from anything like that in Earth's history.

Born with sin I think, something something original sin. For instance angels aren't made with the original sin which Christ died for, they are unlike humans
>It's not merely a potential if God knows what will happen and it's all part of his plan. Then it's just creating evil with extra steps.
That's ridiculous.
Think of it like an equation, only the end product matters.
Agency is the biggest meme in history. We're all just reacting to shit. Think about it.
You know I'm right.

Any good biographies on her? I'd like to understand Joan and her life better. I know Mark Twain was in love with her and wrote a book on Joan, which he considered his best piece, but I fear that his bias will lead me to incorrect data.
Joan is so cute.

Holy shit she looks just like my mom in that pic. This is crazy. Would ultra snuggle with.
