https://www.fountainmagazine.com/Issue/detail/Myth-or-Reality-The-Invasion-and-Spread-of-Islam-in-Spain

So what this article implies is that by numerous signs of coexistance between moors and iberians it might have been that muslims never invaded nor populated iberia in large numbers, the relations between jews, unitarian christians and arabs were warm and as such the invasion is a farce.

How to counter this text? By the way i find muslims completely alienated nowadays and unable to comprehend western traditions, how did it work before?

If very detailed and informative scientific data like that (I allude to your graph specifically) exists on the gene compositions of all different ethnicities with significant populations why do /pol/acks continue to repeat the same old arguments on which races are/aren't/more/less "Aryan" based on phenotypes and stereotypes and such?

But just for curiosity: the purest Europeans today are the Lithuanians.

Actually, Europeans had 3 phases since the end of the last Ice Age. Lithuanians are the purest of phase 1 and 3, while Sardinians are the purest of phase 2.

I can't help but feel there could be some sort of relation between the fall of Bactria and the rise of Christianity some few decades later. Before I do more research what are your opinions on this? It's well known Christ and Buddha have similarities, but yet there is never any mention of people from india or eastern Asia. My guess is that these values could have been carried over by greco refugees themselves and somehow took root in Anatolia.

Sounds plausible, enough so that someone else might have already done research into it, check for that before spending time researching into it yourself.

The Northern route to Central Asia was closed since the Huns, it was too dangerous. Even Eastern Europe was too dangerous and Christianity took centuries to advance there.

About the Southern route, through the Middle East, before Christianity became strong, it was prevented from advance Eastwards due to Persia and Iranic peoples who were pious Zoroastrians. by the time Christianity became strong, the Roman empire was in shambles, Byzantium was already in its eternal downward slope and Islam rose like a wildfire.

The reason Buddhism thrived there was because it was the religion of Merchants in the India-Central Asia-China corridor, the Silk route, and it bypassed other 'powerful' religions.

Islam became hegemonic by the sword later.

They also experienced too much instability for religions to take roots for good, with loads of invasions and population shifts.

Thats likely all true, but it happened long after what OP is talking about. Basically, some of the parables of Jesus Christ show some good similarities with Buddhist teachings. There was a fairly long period in Jesus's life where its unknown where he was or what he was doing https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Unknown_years_of_Jesus. This has led some to speculate that during these lost years he travelled to some Eastern part of the old world where he studied under Buddhist monks. Theres not much evidence behind that theory so OP is wondering about alternative possible theories.

I just see it as normal syncretism, with Zoroatrianism being the catalyst for both Abrahamic religions and Buddhism alike.

But Buddhist ideas might have crossed to the Middle East with merchants too.

Who knows, really.

What makes an Emperor an "Emperor"? An Empire an "Empire"? Is it something as simple as a declaration? Does it deal with territory and titles? Why did the UK, which once held a fourth of the world's territory, never have an Emperor or an Empress? Why did Ethiopia, which was confined to Africa, call their leader an Emperor?

What are the guidelines for being considered an Emperor and an Empire by history?

>Why did the UK, which once held a fourth of the world's territory, never have an Emperor or an Empress?

It had. The Empire of India. The rulers of UK from mid-XIX century were King-Emperors (or Queen-Empress, for that matter). India was the main "Imperial" part of said Empire, but the King/Queen of England&Scotland was treated as more prestigious one even if semantically below the Indian one.

Basically it all goes back to Rome, and 2 classical emperors - the Western and the Eastern. So the "true" emperor would maintain the Roman lineage and thus claim his half of the world. He must also be Christian, so while Ottomans claimed to be (Eastern) Roman emperors, they were never recognized as such by anyone.

2 classic Emperors, never more.

The Holy Roman Emperor was formally the ruler of the whole Catholic Europe, the kingmaker and the supreme feudal authority. When the Pope didn't screw things up by making kings of his own, like when Hungary was made kingdom by the Pope but Poland by the Emperor.

The Roman Greeks mostly kept to themselves and barely promoted anyone to Despot/King title. I can recall only Serbs. Even Russian princes were not formally elevated to Despot-ship even though some minor princedoms were larger than kingdoms to the West.

Bulgarians claimed themselves Imperials at least twice, but both times self-proclaimed and were treated like kings at best. Incessant spamming of Tzar-titles by Bulgarians actually demoted it to King-tier level, even though Tzar is the same word as Kaiser and Caesar.

Russians claimed the Imperial title in absence of any other Orthodox realms left, but were actually acknowledges both in the East and the West. They also had to convert Tzar title to Imperator, to reiterate their claim back from XV century and distance themselves from Bulgarian title-spam.

The Western line went through Charlemagne to Holy Roman Empire to… well, Nappy killed it by inventing his own French Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I think the most consistent application of the term throughout history had to do with geographical areas. Usually Emperor was chosen when dealing with people who would consider the king as a foreigner. They probably figured it was easier to declare a change of lords and then doing something with it later rather than immediately taking conquered land.

I think the UK they didn't adopt the title of emperor much later was because the government involved a parliament and declaring yourself emperor might rile some people up.

Did the soviet union really collapse? KGB defector anatoliy golitsyn in 1984 predicts that liberal reforms will take place in the soviet union where the regime will become something that resembles a democracy but is actually still soviet totalitarianism

>Anatoliy Golitsyn's first book, 'New Lies for Old', caused a long-running sensation when it

was discovered that, unlike most Western analysts, the Author had accurately predicted,

some years ahead of the events, the 'Break with the Past' which took place in Eastern

Europe and the Soviet Union in 1989-91. In his book 'Wedge: The Secret War between the

FBI and CIA' [Alfred A Knopf, New York, 1994], Mark Riebling, who carried out a

methodical analysis of Golitsyn's predictions in 'New Lies for Old', credited the Author with

'an accuracy record of nearly 94%'. This singular achievement puts all other analysts,

including some official services, to shame; and it is precisely because of his record of pinpoint

accuracy that Western Governments, policymakers and even some intelligence

services, whose record bears little comparison with Golitsyn's, have competed with one

another over the years to find reasons why Golitsyn's perceptive explanations of Soviet

strategy should be ignored. But events as they unfold are relentlessly proving this

remarkable analyst of Soviet strategy to be right. 'The Perestroika Deception' explains the

devious secret intent behind the Leninist strategy which the 'former' Communists are pursuing

under cover of fake 'reform' and 'progress towards democracy'. The immediate

strategic objective is 'convergence' with the West - on their terms, not ours. The ultimate

objective is Lenin's: replacement of nation states with collective regional governments as

building blocks of the 'New World Social Order' - World [Communist] Government.

Collapsed. Their west influence got snatched by Western Europe, their central asian vassals by China.

The system is not communistic in the slightest, and they practice a form of civic nationalism today.

Economically, they're an oligarchy.

So, what remained from Soviet Times? The Nukes/Military, which makes the Cold War keep going.

Also, future prospects - Putin wants an Eurasian commonwelth, and to revive the Silk Road, essentially killing America as a whole, as it doesn't produce anything anymore, and the coupe de grace would be destroying the Pretodollar.

Seeing as how EU is more socialist than Russia by now, I don't really see the purpose of keeping up the pretense, if there was any. I could buy what the book is saying if we were talking about Russia under Yeltsin, but Putin's foreign policy is definitely right wing – why would a secretly leftist state that plans to unite everything into a NWO-styled commonwealth go with the bother of annexing Crimea?

Russia as of right now is trying its best to go back to being a superpower. First order of bussiness is leveling out the playing field so that US can't beat them militarily, which is why they started heavily investing into arms development years ago. It even worked – their T14-Armata tank, for example, is one of the best, if not THE best serially produced tank in the world right now, and US has needed to increase its own spending in the field to start matching them.

Second order of bussiness is building a sphere of influence, which you can see them doing right now in places like Syria, Iran, etc.

Third order of bussiness will be to directly compete with America and try push them as much out of Europe as possible. Essentially a restart of Cold War.

If they could reestabilish pre-1989 borders by conquering Central Asia and eastern Europe, it'd be a welcome bonus, but likely not something they actively aim towards as it'd require a direct military confrontation with america, or attacking someone who entered their sphere of influence (both of which would be very unwelcome developments for different reasons).

Genetics proves nothing about the language of the people, not their race, you dense motherfucker. Race != language. The basques are haplo group r1b and speak a language totally unrelated to Indo-European.

"Researchers have made many attempts to identify particular prehistoric cultures with the Proto-Indo-European-speaking peoples, but all such theories remain speculative. Any attempt to identify an actual people with an unattested language depends on a sound reconstruction of that language that allows identification of cultural concepts and environmental factors associated with particular cultures (such as the use of metals, agriculture vs. pastoralism, geographically distinctive plants and animals, etc."

In other words, it's all bullshit. We don't "know" anything for certain about the language of those people.

No, you see, you just don't know anything about it.

Here, this genetic paper:

Massive migration from the steppe is a source for Indo-European languages in Europe

https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2015/02/10/013433

They know that by a fact, because Indians, Iranians, Central Asians: all of those people speak or spoke Indo-European languages, they all shared Yamnaya and Corded Ware ancestry, they carry R1b and R1a too.

We even see European mtDNA among those people, carried there by the Indo-Europeans.

You can see in archaeology and recorded history how all of the Indo-European peoples shared a common culture, religion, lifestyle and language.

You cannot explain Sanskrit or Avestan, for instance, as something that just appeared out of nowhere.

Today, even after massive Dravidian, Turkic, Arab and Mongol admixtures, you can still see some remnants of the Indo-Europeans in the regions.

Look for the Red-haired, blonde and blue eyed Uyghur in Xinjiang (former Tocharian territory), or the Kalash and the Tajik peoples, from the former Sogdia merchant empire. The presence of Indo-European ancestry in these people is still considerable, aDNA-wise and even haplogroup-wise.

>Muh Basques

The Iberian peninsula wasn't affected much by the Indo-Europeans, as we know that by Roman times, there existed many non Indo-European peoples, with the Celtiberians being the only ones.

Iberians in general are the people in Europe with the less Indo-European ancestry (with the exception of Sardinians), and by the time the Celtic presence there and in France became the "norm" they never even get conquered.

The R1b among the Basques might be due to outsiders actively, individually and peacefully seeking to live among them from the outside (thus giving the BasquesPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Just want to point out that people on the borderlands of India (modern day Afghanistan and Western Pakistan) got their Western DNA by settlers that Alexander bought. He conquered as far as the river Jhelum until he was defeated by King Purushottam, and left settlers. This is also where some Kashmiri people get their blue eyes and fair hair.

31.05% Steppe_MLBA_East (Indo-European, Andronovo)

10.80% Sarazm_Eneolithic (pre-Indo-European Tajikstan)

8.90% Shahr_I_Sokhta_BA1 (pre-Indo-European Afghanistan)

4.90% AASI (Original South Indians)

4.25% Seh_Gabi_ChL (pre-Indo-European Iran)

1.85% Mongola (East Asian generic)

All of those pre-Indo-European guys are people heavy in CHG ancestry.

Hello, /his/!

Several years ago, I read two quotes from a biography (or two biographies, I am not certain) of Alexander the Great, recounting two stories:

>When Alexander was still a boy, he and one of his tutors visited a temple. When Alexander grabbed a fistful of incense instead of the standard pinch to throw into the fire, his tutor grabbed his wrist and told him that only when Alexander had conquered Asia would Alexander be able to throw expensive incense so freely. Many years later, when Alexander succeeded in conquering Persia and India, he sent several elephants loaded with incense to his old tutor's home.

>When Phillip died, and Alexander was eager to begin his own warring, he rushed to an oracle to receive a prophecy of his outcomes. The priestess refused to give him a prophecy, he grabbed her by the arms and she exclaimed: "My son, you are invincible!" And so it was.

I would be very grateful for help in locating the source(s) of these Alexander the Great anecdotes. A preliminary web search is not turning up anything even remotely similar for me, and, as is probably apparent, I'm far from a history buff.

That fellow actually isn't Cuppy but a humorist named Will Rogers. His pic always shows up if you google Cuppy, though.

Plutarch's Life of Alexander probably. Also check Arrian. Other primary sources are Diodorus Siculus and Curtius Rufus but it's probably not in either of them.

Thank you, anon. Both anecdotes were from Plutarch.

<Moreover, as he was dispatching great quantities of the spoils home to Olympias and Cleopatra and his friends, he sent also to Leonidas his tutor five hundred talents' weight of frankincense and a hundred of myrrh, in remembrance of the hope which that teacher had inspired his boyhood. It would seem, namely, that Leonidas, as Alexander was one day sacrificing and taking incense with both hands to throw upon the altar-fire, said to him:— "Alexander, when thou hast conquered the spice-bearing regions thou canst be thus lavish with thine incense; now, however, use sparingly what thou hast." Accordingly, Alexander now wrote him: "I have sent thee myrrh and frankincense in abundance, that thou mayest stop dealing parsimoniously with the gods."

<And now, wishing to consult the god concerning the expedition against Asia, he went to Delphi; and since he chanced to come on one of the inauspicious days, when it is not lawful to deliver oracles, in the first place he sent a summons to the prophetess. And when she refused to perform her office and cited the law in her excuse, he went up himself and tried to drag her to the temple, whereupon, as if overcome by his ardour, she said: "Thou art invincible, my son!" On hearing this, Alexander said he desired no further prophecy, but had from her the oracle which he wanted.

Why is this faggot a household name? He only won like 3 or 4 battles. His tactics were pretty suicidal. He had no sense of the big picture. He was all tactical thinking and no strategic. They only worked because of the weak willed leaders that Lincoln had in command of the Union Army between 1862 an 1863.

Reminder he attended West Point in the north and they let him go south.

Because the other guy was so much damn worse.

Why do people even watch this guy? Many instances the thing he spouts are incorrect and are just based on his speculations. Hell, even when he states that his content are meant to just be his opinions, he tends to spin the topic in such that what he says IS actually factual.

Why is /his/ full of retarded faggots who can't pay attention to the words people use? He ALWAYS specifies what is or isn't his opinion.

He isn't all that great but sometimes he makes good points. Also, his holocaust video is autistic.

Why did the native american civilizations fall so far behind the europeans? Was it religion? Lack of competition? Their race? Society?

More on the Megafauna, you see, it seems that Amerindians really did extinct many 'domesticable' species, they hunted everything to exhaustion.

>Native Americans had Chickens as well, brought via Oceania in ways unknown.

Source? I'd assume they were traded across Bering strait. I know some Chinese artifacts (was it a belt buckle?) were found in North America too.

my bad, still my post applies for llamas, also zebras might have the same limitations as the smaller ancestor of the modern domestic horse, not enough muscle, their body not strong enough the be ridden, they are easily scared and whit zebras being more aggresive than horses, males bite each other in fights, also if i recall correctly they are more territorial and tend to fight predators in occasions. Whit domestic horses at hand there is not much gain in domesticating the zebras.
