>The other third of the Iberomaurusians' heritage comes from a previously unknown ancient population originating from Sub-Saharan Africa. The Sahara Desert is difficult to cross even today much less in ancient times, but somehow Stone Age people managed to make the trip.

>While the researchers are certain that some of the ancestors of the Iberomaurusians came from this region south of the Sahara, they could find no precise genetic match with modern populations, meaning it’s possible that their heritage came from a population that no longer exists.

>Bouzouggar suspects that the ancient African population that mixed into the Iberomaurusians could have been the Aterians, who were among the first to use the bow and arrow and to wear ornaments, indicative of advanced symbolic behaviors.

I don't come here much anymore but for a long time I advocated the belief of an Indigenous "black"/"supra-saharan" African population in what is now the Sahara and North Africa.

Of course I was laughed at despite the cave paintings, mitochondrial DNA and facial reconstructions but here.

Is the Vulcan philosophy of logic and mastering your emotions the ideal society?

After seeing Vulcans in Star Trek, I see them as human society in it's most progressive form.

No violence or irrationality, just fulfillment of your duty

Imperial Japan is a clear example of that.
>No violence or irrationality, just fulfillment of your duty

Ah little one, where does the urge for "fulfillment of duty" come from? The irrational urge to order the world according to one's will. And if one's will is a monster of morality, than of course you will seek to bind the world, and therein yourself, under a moral-aesthetic vision.

This is of course tangential to the big elephant in the room. Which is that diet and habit matter far more to a "progressive" form of human. After all, the aesthetic vision of morality is bound by the limits of computational networks.

Or, in the end, Maya wiggles her tongue and all our illusions melt into substance for another illusion. Seems irrational to predict the judgement of a much larger system of networking and computation.
Vulcans are strawmen.
No, next gen Trek is the ideal society
It's funny, in the original show they generally present Spock's lack of emotion as a negative. But I think being a Vulcan, and having total mastery of my emotions while always thinking logically would be great.

How did it take off so quickly? It wasn't even created until the 1900's yet it rapidly grew until about 13% of Christianity became Pentecostal, with 26% becoming Charismatic. That's highly unusual for a denomination in the modern age to spread so quickly.

I was reading some discussions on the Historicity of Jesus and I saw an argument happening between people over whether or not history is typically written when the person was alive.

One was stating that this was not the case, while the other was arguing for it. My problem was neither sourced anything and I could not find any sources anywhere I looked

Does anyone here know the truth to the matter?

Hello, the other day I was on here asking a question about why so many of Virginia's elite planters, themselves often descendants of the British gentry and aristocracy, supported the American Revolution, and it was explained to me that A. many of the Virginia gentry were in debt to English merchants, and also were getting a bum deal on selling their tobacco crops, and also B. they saw that a war was inevitable and wanted to get in on the ground floor and make sure they were on top when the colonies finally declared independence.

I noticed today and yesterday, while reading more about America's founders, it wasn't just the Virginia planters who supported the revolution, but the upper classes across the colonies. Members of the van Rennsselaer (spelling?), Livingston, and Morris families of New York who owned literal feudal manors in the country, and even Pierce Butler, a former British officer settled in Philadelphia who was a son of a baronet were all on the Patriot side.

I had always thought that the Loyalists generally were the upper classes of the 13 colonies, while the aristocratic types who led the revolution were more flukes, but that seems to be a misconception, and most of the colonial upper class were on the Patriot side.

I wondered then, who did make up the Loyalists? Was it newer immigrants? English-born officials who hadn't been in America more than a generation? The lower classes? I understand more blacks fought for the Patriots than the Loyalists, but Britain promised freedom to any slaves of Patriot masters who fought for the Crown.

Was the Revolutionary War more of an upper class revolution from above? And what are some good sources on American Loyalists during the period?

Thank you.

Also, to answer OP's question, read "Strictures upon the Declaration" by Thomas Hutchinson and some works by Samuel Seabury
What caused the British to be so shortsighted about this? Like, surely they knew their own colonies, I understand a lot of members of elite families went over to England to study at Oxford, so it's not as though they were misjudging a foreign culture, there was active travel and relationships between the colonies and home country. If the colonies were so divided, whose idea was it to punish them all along with Massachusetts?

Also interesting points. And also, back to my original question, do you know what social or cultural sphere most of the Loyalists came from?
Oh, thank you. Looking it up now.

This is pure bullshit/british propaganda.

First off, you had to be a "freeholder" in order to vote, in other words, you had to have a sizable amount of land otherwise they felt you had no real stake. And despite the idea that this means only the top of the top qualified for this, its bullshit. 70% of America back then fell under this provision since land was plentiful. The whole appeal of America since forever was that anyone could go there and make a name for himself in the wild west without having to worry about autistic/retarded nobility bureaucracy. Also, it was completely up to each state to set up who could vote. In 1777, Vermont granted "universal" sufferage to all adult men. Even women were allowed to vote in New Jersey.

People often say Jesus's Hebrew name is "Yeshua". But how do we know this? The New Testament was written in Greek, not Hebrew. His Greek name is Iesous. Jesus cannot be Yeshua because that's Joshua. Jesus and Joshua are different names.
>named Yeshua
>Yeshua translated directly to English is Joshua
>New Testament written in Greek
>Yeshua in Greek is Iesous
>Iesous transliterated into Iesus (Latin)
>transliterated into Jesus in English

Joshua in Hebrew is Yehoshua.
Jesus in Hebrew is Yeshu.

You're welcome.

Syriac also uses forms of Yshwʕ as Yeshua or Isho


One set of fragments in Christian Palestinian Aramaic which is close to Jewish Palestinian Aramaic and the Galilean dialect of it which Jesus is presumed to have spoke used "Yesus" but also transliterated other names from Greek such as "Yohanes" for John instead of Yohanan.
They're the same name just that Yeshua/Joshua/Jeshua is the shortened non-theophoric form used in Late Biblical Hebrew of the period following the Babylonian exile and during the Second Temple period in the observance of the avoidance of the pronunciation of the sacred name.
Yehoshúa is the older complete form of the name.

>I did a bit of research, and it’s true

Well then you should easily be able to provide us with a credible source for the claim, “1 billion chinks killed all the birds in China.”
If it’s all true as you claim; then please show the 1 billion Chinese in 1958.

Just because you claim something is true does not mean it is.
>40 million
Not even OP says that 1 billion chinese died, he just said that many were left without vital resources due to programs in the Great Leap forward.

In Ancient China, soldiers often relied on their squad leaders and/or "NCO-level" offices (usually 10-man leaders) and captains to write letters home. This was because officers were 1) village headmen since soldiers tend to come from the same village and 2) had education in literacy.

From the Qin Dynasty, we only have one such letter surviving from the period, which is the "Family Matters" scroll found amongst the so-called Shuihudi Qin bamboo texts. A bunch of random bamboo books & scribbles found in a cave in 1975.
This is why I asked, actually. I still write in cursive, but one day in class we were looking at a primary source and a lot of people just couldn't read it.

I love letters but nobody wants to send them. I had an ex that used to live a couple cities away and I tried to convince them we should write to each other every now and then but they said it sounded too tedious. :,^)

I do drop my grandpa a few lines when I can, he doesn't write back often because he has trouble holding a pen and his wife would have to help him, but it's better than nothing.

It was a part of culture that is being lost. People used to turn their paper 90 degrees and continue writing across the other words when they ran out of room. There were different styles of address and closings. If a relative passed away you would have something to look back and remember them by. It all makes me very sad, desu.
>one day in class we were looking at a primary source and a lot of people just couldn't read it.

To be fair, I can write modern American cursive just fine but depending on the age and country/nationality of the primary source, it can be a bitch to read. Like >>4342483 for instance.
