Since it was brought up in an /elit/ thread, I figured I'd share some historical information someone was curious about.

Islam as a religion is still stuck in medieval ages. Christianity is also an Abrahamic religion and sucked in the middle ages. But it reformed itself and Christian majority Western nations are mostly secular today. Whilst not a single Muslim nation is secular in nature. And the nos of splinter Muslim terror groups is quite significant in areas of Asia and Africa.

Historian 20/10/13(Tue)04:44 No. 15410

We are a mostly secular nation..are you kidding? Try telling that to Ruth Bader Ginsburg's cold dead corpse. See if it doesn't jump up and choke your wishful thinking ass

Historian 20/10/17(Sat)12:46 No. 15411

Anything "stuck" in the Medieval Ages is desirable.
Imagine unironically loving the modern age.

I suppose you've already asked the question before, but why do asians look so similar regardless of nationality? I'm not trying to be racist or something like that.

The same can be said about yurofags. You just need to see more and to be more observant.

In your opinion, if u.s had sided with germany in ww2, how would the world be today?

Probably incredibly similar. From what I know about the Nazis (little) they usually just set up an office in the countries they took over to handle killing jews and the countries they sided with in the war they really didn't ask much of. They likely would have remained a Nazi state for much longer but the US politics wouldn't have been affected much from a truce with them.

If they helped them conquer Europe which would be unlikely, the world might have changed a bit more. The war certainly would have lasted a lot longer and been more brutal but the Nazi state was really set up to fail IMO, I think even the top leaders wanted to eventually lose.

Then it's the best possible timeline. Except I'm American, so maybe not so great for me.

Historian 20/08/05(Wed)23:12 No. 15403

Wow! For initially confessing that you don't know much about the Nazis you sure were right about how much you don't know. There are whole books and if that's too much, movies, tv shows, hell video games about the Nazis that could at least give you a clue.

For a place called /history/ you guys really understand nothing about history. I was unaware revisionism was considered actual history and not just a fucking paler trick.

But the only source for the fight being a massacre are the same filthy ungroomed people. Do you think if they invaded and lost that they'd admit it?

This is the same English who slaughtered the Irish unmercifully until the Irish got fed up and did the same back until they gave Ireland back to them.

All they had to do was treat the people with respect and they'd have had a great thing, but no, instead they go out of their way to piss off everyone until even Scotland wants to secede.

Well if we're going to say it wasn't a massacre we could also say it wasn't because of personal grooming.

>All they had to do was treat the people with respect and they'd have had a great thing,
Invade, conquer and be respectful to your new subjects... what kind of fairytale is this.

Youtube  Is it just me or do the French / Euros in general actively ignore the Americans' influence on the French Revolution?

A lot of things i've read on the French Revolution make no mention of the American Revolution and act as if the French started it all first.

Historian 20/07/13(Mon)01:11 No. 15380

I see it a a quid pro quo.

Without the French the American revolution would have failed. A fact Americans often play down as it would require the admission of being saved by another, a sure blow to their fragile egos of dominance.

In exchange the French play down the role of the American Revolution in their own. It wasn't exactly smart pushing their country to the brink of bankruptcy in an effort to spite the British.

Historian 20/07/13(Mon)05:39 No. 15381

Just because our President is a half baked dip shit doesnt mean we all are. We know the French helped us win, some of us also know that the AWoI was as much a New World Extension of the Seven years war as much as the French and Indian war was. Just held over from all the fall out of the latter.

With that said, the French pretending the early US government didnt help with their revolution is just such a French thing to do. At this point who cares honestly, we helped save them in WWII but then we kinda screwed them in Indochina...it all works out.

Historian 20/07/13(Mon)09:16 No. 15382

>We know the French helped us win
That's an understatement, they turned the whole war around, the British were well on their way to victory until the French showed up.

I'm not sure what the President has to do with this though.

What's the point?
Who do you believe?
I personally believe that anyone, who
takes the idea that repeated observation of phenomena,
along with debate about what the observations mean
and scrutiny of the method by which observations were made
Experimentation, theory, peer review, and acceptance, or rejection, has a stronger argument
than anyone who insists on reffering to some invisible omnipotent being with questionable judgement, an appalling sense of morals and ethics, and refuses to show up for any debate, and whose followers have committed the greatest atrocities on earth over the last 4000 years

Historian 20/04/05(Sun)10:48 No. 15309

It is more like that the universe was created because of the complexity of its design.

Historian 20/04/11(Sat)05:44 No. 15314

So what's an appropriate set of morals and ethics and what is your proof of it.

Could the Estado Novo regime in Portugal be considered fascist or more based around the idea of Christian conservatism? Also what is it's legacy in Portugal itself?

Yes. Both. A winning combo for the ages.
