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.

I remember that they found some errors in some letters that gave a whole new sense to bible verses. They also found that some books were canon in the time these scrolls were hidden but have been decanonized by the modern church.
Is there a compilation somewhere that lists the errors in the bible?

because OP doesn't like Christianity and wants there to be errors come hell or high water
I'm not op but I would think they are more appropriately called edits or non-interpolations based on the view that they were correcting errors. Could also be variants and be so for that reason.
They also found Jubilees and Enoch.
>because OP doesn't like Christianity and wants there to be errors come hell or high water
it's still not an error though it's an inspiration issue, which doesn't even matter if it's the psalms.

>but I would think they are more appropriately called edits or non-interpolations based on the view that they were correcting errors. Could also be variants and be so for that reason.

yeah I understand editors and redactors though this is a extremely rigid view of inspiration, few evangelical scholars even consider this position anymore, the closest to this is the Calvinists such as James White or even the Baptist R.C Ryie.

>They also found Jubilees and Enoch.
it was already known by the time of Jesus that these books were not authentic in their historicity, they were less reliable as canon of scripture, much of 2nd temple Judaism was figuring out what the heavenly realm was like and solving this solution through writings. The development of this leaked into the New Testament to make theological points.
Well much of the later OT scripture including some that are not apocrypha in western or Protestant tradition could be just as comparably dubious in their purported authorship or time of composition.

It was the most murderous regime in Latin American history. Rummel's estimate is 73,000 victims of politically-motivated executions and repressions.

Che Guevara himself ran a concentration camp, "La Cabaña" during the early years of the revolution.

Do you have a decent source for that, map-wise/census?
but they didn't stoop to Germany's level, that was my point. Brest-Litovsk was an insane dismantling of the Russian economy and any potential they had to recover from the war. Versailles has barely even close, and the Entente didn't even force most of it
well on one hand yes, borders should be drawn on ethnic lines, but on the other, history is also important because populations moved around a lot in wars, especially the great wars against the turks

you cant just have a mass of people move into a patch of land and then claim it for their own, so the argument is more complex than just whoever lives there should own it

i don't know if that was the case with hungary but ive heard that argument brought up

a quick google search is all it took, i cant even be fucked to save it

None that I know have survived directly, but the historians who compiled the accounts of the period (Book of Jin, Zizhi Tongjian, etc) would have had access to them.
>Holy fuck this shit is brutal, all over Protestantism?
It was largely a Catholic vs Protestant issue,but it also had a lot to do with the Holy Roman Emperor's attempts to centralize the government and increase his authority. And as more countries became involved, it eventually became a proxy war between the other great European powers like France and Spain with mercenaries and militias doing much of the fighting in place of their actual armies.

If you ever felt you had to keep your mouth shut cause you are a bit green let this be a lesson for ya.

>On Friday, 24 June 1994, a United States Air Force (USAF) Boeing B-52 Stratofortress crashed at Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, United States, after the pilot, Lt Col Arthur "Bud" Holland, maneuvered the bomber beyond its operational limits and lost control. The aircraft stalled, fell to the ground and exploded, killing Holland and the other three USAF officers aboard. The crash was captured on video and was shown repeatedly on news broadcasts throughout the world.

In a recent episode John Oliver said the cause of the American Civil War as 99% slavery and 1% other stuff?

Is this correct?

I was always told the Civil War had many complicated causes.

Fair enough, as a burger myself nothing offends me more than hearing leftists screech about all confederate being racists, all soldiers fought to keep slaves, etc. And I say this as a literal Yankee.
No, we are discussing the particulars of americana slavery that kept being continued for years after it was obsolete and took a war to forcibly dismantle.
Slavery was the main one
Slavery was not obsolete in the antebellum South. The South did not have access to the level of industrialization nor population that would have turned slavery into paid labour. Every other English colony, including the breakaway United States, outlawed slavery once they had the means of using efficient labour over mass labour or used indigent populations that were pliable towards mass labour without having to enslave them. Ignoring this truth and pretending that slavery would only end thanks to the Union is popular revisionism to suit a modern agenda. Don't do it.
I mean slavery was the driving force but boiling it down solely to slavery shows a profound ignorance of American history and the thought regarding the federal government's role in the country and even what the United States was. It was a deeply existential war.

>Being an economist isn't really a 'proper job'
There are plenty of frivolous forms of employment in present day capitalism. Many jobs exist as masked welfare to keep the excess populations from revolting, or for the sake of producing more consumers as they are necessary in growth based economic systems.

-t. brainlet.

Only way you're putting out 1k an hour is if they are crap, it's an easy subject, or you have already done an outline. Try writing 1k/hour on a difficult subject or an actually decent book and get back to me, professional authors who are actually published pull off maybe 2,000-2,500 a day with 8-14 hours of writing, some just 1,000.

Anybody know anything about archaeology in Doggerland? I know they use a lot of oil company maps of the North Sea to trace ancient rivers, which should give them a decent idea about lost settlements and whatnot
Doggerlanders were shit tier people who had no cultures worth mentioning even as a sidenote. They are only overhyped by clueless Americans and Brits who don't understand Stonehenge has nothing to do with the Dog people.
>They are only overhyped by clueless Americans and Brits who don't understand Stonehenge has nothing to do with the Dog people.
I'm British and I've never heard anything remotely like that
What the devil are you talking about

The Doggerland meme is all about "lost culture which is right there underwater" and the relative proximity of Stonehenge is used as justification for the delusions despite there being no real connection.
If you've never heard about the Doggerland meme good for you. I wish I hadn't either.
I think you mean Atlantis OP

Does anyone know where I can download "The Times Complete History of the World" 9th edition (2015) by Richard Overy? I've been looking everywhere for it and I can't find it.

Here's the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Times-Complete-History-World/dp/0008150265

I decided to ask here since the book's about history but if this isn't the best place to ask then please recommend me the right place.

You mean Axum, which was a naval nation in modern Eritrea, and ethnic Somalian.
For comparison, Ethiopia is a landlocked non-Somali state.
They're on a major trade route and have land good enough to be used for agriculture.
