So where do the Sub-Saharan Africans, New World Aboriginals and all the different nations east of the Zagros Mountains come from? Do any of those YEC types delve into a model based on Haplogroups and Oral History to euhemeristically line everything up in a Universal History? Eurocentrism is understandable historically but come on, can we integrate that Jungian Shadow of anthropology and move on?

Death is the greatest rest of the weary. Its the most glorious conclusion to life, and the final resting place of all man. FVI FVI NON SVM NON CVRO. I didn't exist, I did exist, I don't exist, I have no cares. The Grim Reaper is not a malevolent being. Why do so many fear a final death?

> If you are aware of a state which you call "is" - or reality, or life - this implies another state called "isn't" - or illusion, or unreality, or nothingness, or death. There it is. You can't know one without the other. And so, as to make life poignant, it's always going to come to an end. That is exactly, don't you see?, what makes it lively. Liveliness is change, is motion.
I kind of understand this, but not quite.
Sometimes I hear about the idea that the endless life would feel boring, maybe that's what he means here.
>Sometimes I hear about the idea that the endless life would feel boring, maybe that's what he means here.
In a way, what he's basically saying is eternal life would eventually be indifferent from death, later in that same lecture he states that "The most real state is the state of nothing."
It makes sense if you think about it, after being conscious for trillions of years, there would be no novelty left, everything would be trivial. Boring is one way of putting it I suppose, but thats almost underselling it.

>The trinity isn't in the bible. It was slapped on centuries later.

He is God in the form of man, stainless, the minister of the father’s will, the word who is God…Clement of Alexandria (A.D.195) Ante-Nicene Fathers vol.2 pg.210

Since, therefore, the Father is eternal, the Son also is eternal, Light of Light. For where there is the begetter, there is also the offspring. And if there is no offspring, how and of what can He be the begetter? But both are, and always are. Since, then, God is the Light, Christ is the Brightness. And since He is a Spirit - for says He, “God is a Spirit” - fittingly again is Christ called Breath; for “He,” said He, “is the breath of God’s power.”And again he says: Moreover, the Son alone, always co-existing with the Father, and filled with Him who is, Himself also is, since He is of the Father. Dionysius of Alexandria (A.D. 264) Ante-Nicene Fathers vol.6 pg.92

>The concept of the Trinity or even more can be easily explained by Eastern religious culture.


The concept came from the real original GOD. The God who created Adam & walked in the garden with him.

It was not 'Invented' by Eastern religions, pagans, or anyone.
God was BEFORE man, He was & will be forever.
We exist in time, not Him.
The prophet Enoch was before The Flood. when did the 'Eastern Religions' start?
Abraham was an adult before Noah died. He knew about The Flood and the people who descended from Noah, and about Nimrod who went out and built the 1st cities.

There is a 'Before Christ', but NOT before Christianity, because Abraham, and even Adam knew someday there would come a Christ (or Messiah in Hebrew) that would pay for sin. A 'Lamb of God'.

I see many /his/sies use the term incorrectly. Here is what Fascism actually is:
>acknowledges parts of marxist class analysis, but rejects and overcomes it (that is why many Fascists started out as Communists)
>instead of a single class striving for a dictatorship, class synthesis should be achieved
>maximize the power of a nation by using the power of the state to make the classes collaborate with each other

This is the first phase of Fascism. The second phase of Fascism is about the creation of a new type of civilization. In these post-fascist civilizations old ideologies, parties and religions would be overcome. A Catholic Bavarian or a German Social Democrat would not be concepts people identify as or could be identified as anymore. There would be completely new identities unfamiliar to the traditional political structure of Europe/the host nation.

I hope this now helps people to figure out if rulers like Franco, who led a big-tent of coalition of conservative and right-wing factions is a fascist.

Fascism is when the government is mean to people
Socialism is when the government does stuff
Hitler's regime was both Fascist and Socialist because the government was mean to people and did stuff.
IDK, I was talking to a bunch of politics students recently, and from what they were saying Fascism is when they don't like the government - and the less they like it the more fascisty it is.
It's when the middle class makes a dictatorship
Fascism is nationalist collectivism. It seeks to make a superorganism out of a nation. Nearly everything else is malleable.
It's actually just a developmental stage of the welfare state for the retarded and edgy countries.

The CIA wanted cats to be spies in the 1960s. They put recording devices inside them and tried to control their movements with sound. But it was a bad idea. They killed a cat during a test and the others didn't follow directions well. The project was a waste of $20 million.
They also conducted mind control experiments on dogs.
Wasn't there an old movie about that?

Since you're here, answer me this: did the mesoamericoids exclusively hold banners on their backs samurai style or was that only for warrior decoration and the actual troop coordination banners were held by hand? The two books i've read have very conflicting information on that specific subject

Why did Ethiopians/Abyssinians have so much trouble fighting Somalis when they had no problems steamrolling all the other nomadic and tribal groups? The Adalite Somalis even came close to wiping out Ethiopia until they recieved assistance by the Portuguese
The truth is that Somalis are an alpha male race.
Somalians are just resilient and fearless. They would have too nuke them like the US did Japan.
are there any somali pirates left?

Atheist here. I would have been a Christian if Evolution was not real. But unfortunately it is. That means the Adam and Eve story is false, and the Bible loses all credibility. If you resort to saying Adam and Eve was a metaphor, you might as well say Jesus was a metaphor also at that point. It's not my fault I'm an Atheist, that's just what science has revealed about the reality of nature and I have to accept it.

A preacher once said, poignantly
>did you need a scientist to tell you that humans share 99% of their DNA with apes?
>have you seen an ape? Obviously they’re 99% similar
>doesn’t prove a godless worldview though

Just thought this was an interesting comment
Evolution is actually very spiritual and not fully explicable by natural selection. Mechanistic Neo-Darwinism is not the last word on evolution. Other theories can lead more towards symbiosis as being the main driver and evolution having an inherent creativity, which could also lead to the argument the Earth is a superorganism. However, it seems to imply something like Daoism or Mahayana as being true.
Abrahamism was always a trash tradition, so the fact you even "consider" that you would have been a Christcuck means you're a depraved dumbass.
Your angry, jealous god was always one of death and destruction just like your wretched heart. Kys in all sincerity.
How is evolution a faulty theory? You can’t explain why
Basically every sophisticated Christian accepts evolution, and it's not done by saying Adam and Eve was metaphor, read books

Can someone explain this Bible passage to me? How can God (Jesus) not know something? In theory Jesus is omniscient/all-knowing.
18 replies omitted. Click here to view.
hypostatic union.
The problem is trying to split the natures
Actually what I'm saying here is quite profound spiritual wisdom that I was taught by a man greater than me.

Jesus fully become Human, His human nature wasn't special by His right of birth or anything.
He was fully human.
And he walked the path that is intended for every human.

His miracles are not from His Divine nature.
His life is not from His Divine nature.
On the earth He was the same human as you and I.
And his wonderworks and feats of faith and wisdom is accessible to anyone.

He Himself said that "if you follow Me, you will do more than I do".

Google Kenosis
Look for example at this passage

"51 Then he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them. His mother treasured all these things in her heart.
52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and in years, and in divine and human favor."

Jesus was growing, He wasn't simply a complete God who get everything from birth.
The Hypostatic union. The Son in His human nature has human limitations such as growing in wisdom and stature (Luke 2:52) and having trouble carrying the cross, among other things. But the Son in His divine nature is omniscient. He has both natures simultaneously, and Matthew 24:36 is referring to the Son's human nature.
According to trinitarians, Jesus lied when he said that

Everything else they will tell you is cope

Yeah I do
the media are democrat asslicks and always have been, all the way back to the founding of the US, freedom of the press was largely to protect eventually democrat aligned papers. when immigrants on the east coast largely took over the media they largely pushed for leftist spending policies and hated protestant conservative americans (Trump)

because he is a threat to the welfare establishment he must be destroyed
A continuing exhibition theme explores how ethnic media laid the foundation for civil rights. It showcases crusading journalists who publicized the struggle for justice, including Ignacio E. Lozano, who in 1926 founded La Opinion to fight mistreatment of Mexicans; and Bill Hosokawa, who published The Heart Mountain Sentinel while he was interned at a Japanese American relocation camp during World War II.

One of the most fascinating surprises in the exhibition is the contract signed by Abraham Lincoln when he became a newspaper publisher in 1859. Anticipating a run for the presidency, he “recognized that the road to the White House went through the German American community in his hometown of Springfield, Ill.” So for $400, he bought the German-language newspaper Illinois Staats-Anzeiger to court German-speaking voters, and hired the paper’s editor to work on his campaign.

The more I read into the Middle Ages the more the Phantom Time theory is fucking retarded
I wish it was real. It would have made things more interesting
>According to this scenario, the entire Carolingian period, including the figure of Charlemagne, is a fabrication, with a "phantom time" of 297 years (AD 614–911) added to the Early Middle Ages.
What the fuck this is fucking retarded
Yeah, it is.

But the Greek Dark Ages literally never happened. Bronze Age Collapse was real, but it didn't take centuries to recover.
