ITT: tales of bizarre colonial ventures.
>In 1883, Nikolay Ivanovitch Achinov visited Abyssinia in order to establish clerical and political ties between the two countries. After his return to Russia, Achinov voiced his plans for an 1888 expedition to the Gulf of Tadjoura to establish a settlement, while claiming to be a free Cossack.
>On 10 December 1888, Achinov along with 165 Terek Cossacks boarded Kornilov, a ship heading from Odessa to Alexandria. The expedition then boarded the Russian ship Lazarev which brought them to Port Said. There, Achinov rented the Austrian ship Amfitrida, which entered the Gulf of Tadjoura on 6 January 1889. The expedition was greeted by a group of Ethiopian priests.
>Achinov struggled to keep the Cossacks under his control, but some raided the Danakil, stealing a cow and a sheep after driving off the local tribesmen with rifle fire. The sultan accepted 60 francs from Achimov as reparations. The French foreign office demanded an explanation of Achimov's actions, and the Russian ambassador in Paris distanced the Russian Empire from Achimov.
>On January 14 the abandoned Egyptian fort of Sagallo was chosen as the new base of the expedition. Achinov named the fort New Moscow. A tent was erected to serve as the church of St. Nicholas and a flag of the expedition was raised.
>Rumours about the formidable size of the expedition quickly spread through the press. Later, several colonists escaped to Obock, informing the French of the settlement's whereabouts. On 5 February, the Cossacks noticed one cruiser and three gunboats. An ultimatum was issued, but Achinov misunderstood it and did not surrender. The artillery barrage that followed came as a complete surprise for the Russians, leaving 6 colonists dead and 22 wounded. A white shirt was raised to show surrender. The Russian Government disavowed Achimov, accusing him of disobedience to the Czar and acts of piracy. Participants were arrested and deported back to Odessa aboard Zabiyaka.

Why do racists always claim to be backed by "science and facts", but when actual qualified biologists who know what they're talking about disagree with racists, they chimp out and claim that science is a spook?

It appears as though racial lines are somewhat quantifiable when you look at autosomal DNA. Though it is blown out of proportion. Human’s haven’t diverged from each other long enough for us to be cladistically distinct.

I recall a study on two distinct chimpanzee populations from the same part of Africa having more genetic distance between them than the entire human race.
its just general tribalism, to trust people who look similar to you, do things similar to you rather than someone who looks completely different and has different culture.

>this is the education level of the average /his/ poster
Horses were hunted to death in the americas by the first natives 12,000 years ago. There were no horses in the americas after that until the europeans came.

Seriously, why is this board filled with so many retards
spanish diseases still would have killed almost all of the indians
they weren't hunted to death there was a an asteriod impact IN GREENLAND 13k years ago that purposely wiped out horses in america. this explains the ancient egyptian civilization as this turned the earth global period

it was majority. nobody was riding around in horse and buggy during ford motor age.
>Yes, that's...
Oh, you're dismissing it and being petty because that irritated you.
If that's enough to set you off, I don't think we'll be able to have a discussion.
alright now, we weren't having a discussion to begin with, i corrected your mistake where you pretended children don't and haven't rebelled from their parents instructions, pointing out some obvious sociological principles in nature whereby they must do all the time as a matter of course, which is demonstrably higher in our society over the last 100/300 years and is basically synonymous with childhood development and natural evolution.

you thought this was a myth put about by the media.

discussion? nooo. don't have the time or energy to try to convince a person that the grass is green or the sun rises in the morning.
>alright now, we weren't having a discussion to begin with
Oh, so it's an argument then.

So here's the empirical evidence that people tend to conform to whatever their parents believe:

My conjecture based on that is that while you have pertinent examples of rebellion, the majority do not rebel to any significant degree, and will conform overall to their parent's beliefs.

You then brought up the hippie movement, I pointed out that was a minority movement, you then responded with "No u", :) and "No it wasn't!" despite it being the counter to the mainstream culture, and conflated technological development with cultural development.

Now that we're all caught up, your "common sense" that "the grass is green" is empirically false, contest it with argumentation or evidence (a hint, you will need evidence to dispute what I just posted), otherwise I will just I assume I win, and that this all just petty gesticulation because the mean man wasn't nice to you.
>You then brought up the hippie movement,
i didn't bring that up, but i knew that's what you were thinking when you used the term counter-culture; in fact I was talking about everything, I mean, it should be obvious, the move away from their parents ideals to go to college, etc, for women to leave the kitchen, etc, it was much more than "the hippie movement" which you're right was fairly small.

but it should be evident to prove my point that young persons had then and continued to reject whatever their parents said, almost just because their parents were saying it; hence the comparison "almost as rite of passage"(or coming of age, whatever i said).

it's so everywhere that i said in the first place that you couln't have been living on planet earth not to have noticed this, so i replied with your quote and changed "media" to "alt-media" because it's mostly the "fake-trad" kids and e michael jones who try to pretend that this didn't take place, which is where the words came into your head from at somewhere along the line, i have no doubt.

>no u!
No you!!

No i wasn't meaning to do that, I was doing a rhetorical turnabout where a thing you had claimed actually applied to you; I suppose defacto it is a "No u!" but it's a legitimate instance here.

also this has virtually nothing to do with the thread, so if we're gatecrashing and kicking this mans house apart for fun, did you bring drinks?

Why aren't kids being taught that the skulls they're finding after "human sacrifice" in mexico come from conquistadores who faked it and planted the skulls (after genocide)?
This can't be true. Mesoamerican human sacrifice was supposed to have just been a racist myth, this can't be fucking happening.

All action is a result of preference. The most preferable life is the most moral life, as it makes no sense to choose the less preferable over the most preferable. So the consequences of an action and the effects thereof upon your experience are what determine what is moral. The problem is that we cannot always know exactly what the consequences of an action will be.

>Free Will
Can we truly choose how to act? Or are we pre-determined? The answer is irrelevant. The purpose of action is to seek preference of experience, regardless of our freedom or lack thereof. People only desire freedom, or lament their lack of freedom, insofar as they believe they would benefit by being free. Surely if we were omniscient and had full power over the will, then we could always act in such a way that we would bring about the most preferable life. Yet even without this reality, we should still focus on what we can do with our ability to achieve our best possible life.

>Knowledge, Belief
Can we know anything? Maybe not. But we have belief. And it’s through belief that we live and benefit. Truth is only valuable insofar as it benefits you to know the truth. A belief is good insofar as it benefits you to believe.

>Does God exist?
The better question is whether or not you should believe in God. Morally speaking, if we compare the life of the devout theist with the life of a strong atheist, then the evidence favors theism. And that’s not even considering the afterlife.

>Which God should we believe in?
Though evidence may play a role, such as through prophesy, history, perpetuity of the religion, etc. we can simply ask what’s practical. Most religions emphasize good works, yet Christianity emphasizes faith while also upholding the importance of good behavior. To be a believing Christian while also doing good works is therefore the safest choice.

Helen was literally kidnapped and also fictional. If we’re including fake made up nonsense then I say Lilith, or maybe that broad in paradise lost who birthed death who immediately grew up and raped her and her womb filled with wolves who rip her apart from the inside
She literally did nothing wrong and the Iliad is a sad tale from when or after the seaniggers ravaged the ancient world and ruined everything.

I'm not saying it was a forgone conclusion, but Hitlerism was precipitated by the same social ills that caused the rise of Communism in Germany. In another world, Germany had the revolution and Russia turned fascist, and in other one both might have succeeded. Its just in our historical conditions, fascism won. And then lost and then liberal-bourgeoisie won again. Great Man theory is bullshit, Hitler gained control only because he appealed to the petite-bourgeoisie and capitalists. He himself individually couldn't have achieved any of it.
Stalin was a bank robber, he probably killed a few people on his own
Bankers aren't people.
false info, he was actually a femboy slave under BASED ATATURK who took KARA BOGA COCK to please the superior TURKISH RACE

Stalin was also a Jew

And he was only 5'3 he lied to his personal doctors and had them forge the documents to make him taller, he also wore platform shoes and liked to wear dresses and high heel shoes

(also armenians aren't real)
