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

Why is it okay for George Washington and his army to overthrow the British Government even though it's illegal,

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.

To be fair Peter the Great probably had the same low opinion of Russia as you doubtlessly have. The entire point of Saint Petersburg (in itself being a Germanic-style name that Peter himself gave the city) was to be his personal version of Amsterdam as most Russian cities were still medieval-tier.

It is evident that the cultural peak of humanity occurred in the Neolithic times, as this era witnessed the emergence and spread of civilization, the foundation of philosophy, the development of agriculture, the invention of art forms and the first urban settlements.
No it was gay and miserable.

Does anyone know of a good narrative history book on Poland-Lithuania
god's playground by Norman Davies is one of the most objective books about the matter due to authour's birthplace not being poland thus not aligning himself with any political narrative, if you are more interested in the downfall of PLC then Richard Butterwick's book "light and flame" is also quite meticulous and objective and covers lots of details, there are many polish authors that write with witty and beautiful prose, such as my favorite, Pawel Jasienica, but I don't know if there are any books avalible in english
>god's playground norman davies
>this isn't polish history it's the history of everyone
Red flag.
either >>15654558 or Heart of Europe I guess. I'm Polish myself but I don't know of any other works like that, even in Polish. I hope someone bumps the thread with something else.
You could also try the History of Poland Podcast on spotify I suppose, I'm not sure if it's still in production but the author made it up to Sigismund III. If you've watched History of Rome by Mike Duncan then you'll be right at home.
The history of Poland podcast stopped being updated IIRC. There is the history of the crusades podcast. The Baltic Crusades portion is about the rise and fall of the teutonic order in the baltics
