Youtube  Do you think that future historians will view isis as a legitimate successor to the ottoman empire some 100+ years from now?

Historian 16/07/19(Tue)02:05 No. 14885

Not really, since the Ottoman Empire's foundation was the Eastern Roman Empire. What connection is there between the Roman Empire, Orthodox Christianity (its successor) and ISIS?

The latter are just fundamentalist fuckwits, who, like all fundamentalist fuckwits, believe in taking some goat herders masturbatory fantasies literally, using 21th century linguistics to interpret the translation of a translation they're using as the basis of their theocracy.

ISIS and Southern Baptists would be the best of friends if only they would stop declaring each other the devil.

I applaud your cynicism, but question your logic.

Historian 19/10/16(Wed)20:56 No. 15239

Why would they?

Historian 19/10/18(Fri)16:05 No. 15240

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.
