This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

How can the concept of hell be compatible with an omnibenevolent, omnipotent, and omniscient creator?

The things of God are not understandable to brute beasts, so that's a point for the bible being of God, and you being of the rambling madman for understanding his nonsense.
>Is it okay with you that God makes what He wants to make, and uses what He wants to use for His own purposes? Is that okay?
If it's in a way I view as just, then yes absolutely. Why wouldn't you be okay with that?

Oh yes because you're an evil psychopathic subhuman that lies to everyone including himself about enjoying imagining people suffer.
Faith and belief are the two translations of the same word
If humans cannot understand God why should we listen to what the bible says about God you fucking retard?
If they believed in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, or if they believed in a messiah, or if they believed in Moses and the prophets, or if they agreed with the Holy Spirit that there is a God, and wanted to be with Him, they ended up in paradise.

Jesus tells a story of two men who go to Hades, one to paradise side and one to torment side, in Luke 6 iirc.

Those people in paradise went to heaven with Jesus when He rose from the dead; the people in torment are still there.

Andy Vollmer, a bigwig at SEC, questioned about the Madoff affair. One of the most surreal videos on Youtube.

prior to 2000s, 20% Interest rates on savings was the standard. then drastically went to 1%

what happened?
>globalisation ponzi scheme

your funds were invested in China/India
prior to 2000, gas was 1 a gallon for ages. then drastically went to $3-4 a gallon

what happened?
>peak oil ponzi scheme

fabricated peak oil propaganda is a creation of oil mafia to gouge oil prices

The lie resulted in the prices increased and every few years peak oil scaremongering would be repeated to drive higher oil prices...Pessimistic claims of future oil production made after 2007 stated that the peak had already occurred

They pushed the scam, that global oil production is about to peak, which in turn will signal the permanent end of cheap oil.

we were told that we passed peak oil more than a decade ago
>the rise in oil prices over the last decade was a result of the peak oil crisis
>shale oil utilized, price does not decrease

Has Communism ever been implemented in a First World Late Stage Capitalist country like Marx said it should be?

Seriously now before all the /pol/kiddies come crying about the "not real communism" argument, to be fair it was Marx himself who said that Communism can only be implemented in a developed Capitalist society for it to succeed, which possessed the advanced infrastructure that could be provided only by late Capitalism to support it.

To me it makes a lot of sense, hence why in history underdeveloped countries like China and Russia which had their own revolutions inevitably had to implement Capitalist measures to be able to economically compete with the other highly advanced Capitalist nations of their time.

Late Stage Capitalism is a meme prediction with nothing backing it up.

Until they tried to take from Europeans, then they got their shit fucked in by a Hussar.
The Ottomans at their peak owned more of Europe than anyone else except Russia, which they got partly from spanking the Poles in several different wars and taking Podolia from them.

The OP looks like the Pharaoh is fighting a multiethnic army.
Not really, they all wear the same clothes. And yes, this is how this picture looks in real life.
>It's rather interesting that some Nubians have the same skin color as the pharaoh.
You have to remember that by the time of the 19th Dynasty, the Egyptians had conquered Nubia several times. Egyptian subjugation of Nubia generally involved the construction of forts and immigration of sizable populations south to man these forts and support the towns around them, but when Egyptian influence declined, these people didn't always leave with them. Often times, they would even join the Nubians - the trend seems to be that they'd side with whoever looked the strongest.

With gaps of hundreds of years between periods of Egyptian control, it's not completely outside the realm of possibility for these Egyptian immigrants may have assimilated into Nubian society at least enough to start adding some color variety to the population.
Your ignoring that the basis of both Nubia and Egypt os Nabta Playa. The darker people are from further south and who intermixed with Nabta Playa people's to varying degrees if any.

The idea that the Nile populations where not genetically unified at the end of the Neolithic Subpluvial is not based on archeological evidence of Nabta Playa.

Levantine and Nilotic populations merely "pulled" northern most and southern most populations.

Germans aren't Aryan either. "Aryan" refers specifically to Indo-Iranian people. Why Hitler appropriated the term is anybody's guess.
Anglo/Americans are beyond saving at this point. But in the 1940s there was still hope.

Today only a few Europeans are pure enough to continue the existence of the pure Aryan stock. Most live in rural areas and are free from cultural Marxism/Judaism

There's a very strong tradition of voluntary celibacy in the traditional churches that is supported by scripture.
scripture can be distorted to support whatever people want it to. The Bible says children are a blessing.
Christ and Paul say if you can, you should be celibate, although they both recognize that it's not for everyone . Celibacy should be a serious consideration for every Christian, and they should reject it only when they are sure they aren't cut out for it.
"5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
