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.

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

Let's imagine a world where whites (French, Germs, Scandi and Anglos) as a civilization would be without appropriating culture, technology and riches from other people's.

Which means:
No contact with the Roman Republic/Empire and China
No crusades
No Judeo-Christian religions
No discovery of the new world
No colonization of Africa
No establishments of chiefdom beyond Germania Magna (No Italian, French, Iberian and African dynasties).
Celts still populate most of Europe in this timeline

Also remember that whites before contact with Rome had no literature or construction capabilities beyond wooden buildings. They did have Bronze Age weapons, though. Starting year: 200 B.C. (before first Roman interventions in Gaul because they wouldn't stop killing each other)

Let's level whatever field you're playing on, no culture, technology or riches from others - all civs.

>Also remember that whites before contact with Rome had no literature or construction capabilities beyond wooden buildings. They did have Bronze Age weapons, though. Starting year: 200 B.C.
So in 200 B.C. the whites steam roll every other Civ...
Let's be clear the Romans (who were the ones who held them in check) appropriated almost everything from other cultures including their entire pantheon.

So now you got whitey steam rolling across the globe, slapping henges all over the place as a testament to their awesomeness. Fast forward a few thousand years to the internet age and we have some hut-shitter rambling on about how if other Civs had worked together in 200BC. they could have made the world a better place by stopping the whitey before his dominance.

Shit's 'like circlular you know, like stone henge....

What is the importance of religion?

Historian 20/01/03(Fri)06:27 No. 15286

>having your morality come from a presupposition of objective truth and first cause creator is hardly faulty logic.
Faith is the belief in something despite nobody being able to properly demonstrate its existence. By definition, it is as far from objectivity as possible, let alone logic.
>We don't have the power to bring back someone who is for example either stabbed, raped or maimed and the surveillance state the west has erected is not helping us prevent planned attacks. Fixing a problem after it happened, no matter how well it's restored, will never make preventing said problem obsolete.
I don't know what you're trying to argue here.
>What? What the fuck are you talking about?
Somebody doesn't know enough about history...

Historian 20/01/03(Fri)07:40 No. 15287

>For one, not every religion is christianity with the same moral system.
True, but Abrahamic cults led to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, whose underlying tenets are mostly the same except for differences caused by stupid people running the religion as their personal piggybank for way too fucking long leading to them diverging despite their common root.

Those three sects, combined, account for the majority of religious mouthbreathers on this planet.

Youtube  I don't know OP, what's the importance of experimental philosophical doctrines that mesh how the world is, with how one should act, trying to form a stable gestalt on metaphysical topics that make one's head hurt and make you swoon, overwhelm you and disorient you just thinking about

Yeah what is the explanation for this? I'm having a hard time tracing the line. Isn't ISIS on the terroristic side, messing with people's lives? How do you connect them? Mesopotamia and Rhodesia both had irrigation systems but I don't call them comparable in the first place in conversation. lol
I want to know why you associate them. Were there close amounts of power for these groups? I would think there's a disparity, right? They both don't exist in the same amount on that metric. I can't see why you'd equate them, it's a mystery to me. I've encountered a Herculean task of managing the mystery of this scenario. lol

It doesn't have to make sense, it just fits in with a narrative he's being paid to push online. If he doesn't write a post he doesn't get paid.

He doesn't put a lot of thought into each one so you shouldn't either.

Why is Africa backward ? Historian 19/07/06(Sat)21:18 No. 15171 [Reply]

File 156244070746.png - (272.63KB , 496x315 , 1562410963955.png )

I would like us to discuss why Africa is backward. As far as I know, this is the first man to have arisen in the continent. Before the arrival (man) on the territory of e.g. Europe it took several thousand years, so Africans should be developed a few thousand years ahead of other human races, but it happened the other way round, and the indigenous inhabitants of Africa together with a group of Australian Aborigines and tribes living in the rainforests of the Amazon are among the most backward human groups on Earth.

Why native Africans havent been able to form a functioning civilization after several thousand years ?

It's been scientifically proven that ancient Egyptians more closely resemble modern whites than modern africans. So no, they weren't kangs n sheit

Historian 19/09/20(Fri)13:17 No. 15233


That they had modern European DNA, which we've always known. Ancient Egyptians were basically mixed of African, European, and Semetic roots.

They, like Phonecians, were heavily semetic, however.

Historian 19/11/09(Sat)03:47 No. 15264

They're closest to Arabs and Jews though. And just because they aren't black doesn't mean they aren't African. You did use an epic maymay though so my argument is moot
