Board: /his/

"/his/ - History & Humanities" is 4chan's board for discussing and debating history.

Welcome to /his/ - History & Humanities
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 did Hitler think he was gonna win against USA?
Even if Japan had crippled USA's pacfist fleet, Japan had no resources or interest to invade east coast.
And even if Germans had somehow carried Sea Lion and occupied Western Russia, they would have still lost, because USA had enough manpower and resources than the combined Axis.

Why do all European paganism gravitates towards Odin?
Most other gods are usually just talked about passingly, if at all. No one ever talks about Zeus for example.

It seems the current zeitgeist of pagan revivalism still has a tendency towards monotheism and everyone somehow instinctively recognizes Odin as that one god to worship.

Did the anceint persian Empire not write much down?
We hear how great the Persian empire was, and it was no doubt so, but most of the sources it seems we have of it are greek. Despite it covering most of the civilized world at the time. Are there some notable Persian writers I am unaware of, is this simply a product of living i a western culture with western sources more readilly avaiable, or was their less of a literary culture across that empire?

It does seem like our first less mytho-historical writings come within the greek cultural sphere with things like heroditus and later Xenephone and such. And a similar thing happened with older roman history where a lot of it is by greeks as well. THough in that case, Rome was a much younger civilization then the mesopotamian-persian one when it came to prominence.

black military police being inspected
>One of the great ironies of World War II is that the world's greatest democracy fought the world's greatest racist with a segregated Army. African-American troops remained set apart in "colored" units commanded by white officers, as had been the case since the Civil War. Most were not deployed in combat and more often limited to support and logistics roles. Black veterans were not granted any of the benefits of the GI Bill postwar and a disproportionate amount of black soldiers were executed for war crimes, most often rape, more than 400 such executions were carried out by the US Army during the war, one such victim being the father of lynching victim Emmett Till, accused of assaulting an Italian woman. A few black units performed well, many did not. George S. Patton initially distrusted black tank drivers as he fancied blacks did not have the reflexes to drive a tank. German POWs sent to the United States were surprised at the segregated public facilities in the South; even in German's pre-WWI African colonies such racial segregation did not exist.

Chy Lung v. Freeman (1875) saw the Supreme Court overturn a California regulation fining oceangoing vessels that arrived at its ports $500 for importing alien prostitutes as an infringement on Congress's power to regulate overseas commerce and shipping. The state required an inspection of vessels to screen out any "lunatic, idiotic, deaf, blind, crippled, infirm, or likely to be so, or is a convicted criminal, or a lewd and debauched woman" and forbid that person from entering the state unless the ship master paid a $500 bond to guarantee the state would not be responsible for the person for at least two years. A Chinese woman named Chy Lung arrived at San Francisco with 20 other Asian females whom city officials determined to be said lewd and debauched women. The captain of the vessel refused to pay the $500 fine (equivalent to $12,700 in 2022 dollars) and the women were summarily detained. Most were later released but Chy Lung appealed to the Supreme Court.

St. Gregory Of Nyssa taught the Filioque
Orthobros are in shambles.They have no choice but to convert, for the sake of their salvation, to traditional Catholicism (not the Vatican II sect).

>"that while we confess the indistinguishable character of the nature, we do not deny the difference in respect of cause and that which is caused, whereby alone we apprehend that one [Person is distinguished from another. [affirming this] by our belief that whereas one is the cause, the other is from the cause.And again in that which is from the cause we recognize another distinction: for whereas one is directly from the first [cause], the other is through that which is directly from the first [cause]; so that [the property of] Only Begottenness remains unambiguously with the Son and [yet] the Spirit's existence from the Father is not brought into doubt, for the mediation of the Son preserves his [property of] Only-Begottenness to himself while not debarring the Spirit from his natural relation with the Father."- St. Gregory Of Nyssa, On Not Three Gods

Question for Reformed Anglicans
Can you say, with all honesty, that the historical Anglican faith, that is to say the faith as defined by Richard Hooker, is consistent enough with Reformed theology and practice to be considered an actual reformed church? I have been reading the criticisms from the Presbyterians and congregationalist and I have to say that they didn't consider the Anglican church to be a truly reformed church.
Stuff that I have read recently:
A Dispute Against the English Popish Ceremonies (George Gillespie)
A View of Popish Abuses Yet Remaining in the English Church (John field)
Admonition to Parliament.
Also the fact that the Westminster Confession of Faith (which the Anglicans reject) was created because the Calvinist acknowledged that the English church was not reformed enough is telling. So why not become consistent in your theology and become Presbyterian or join a local congregationalist church?

Teams are composed of characters and memes representing different 4chan boards. Each team has a group of managers responsible for helping their board determine their team roster, designing aesthetic modifications to the game, and giving tactical instructions to their computer controlled team.

The point of the thread is discuss and see which changes does the board would like to see i.e. new players, music, aesthetics ideas (kits, balls, chants, ad boards, player models and etc.). Next week a poll will be made to carry out those changes.

It's not like you have to be a retard to be an atheist/nontheist, but it's certainly not a barrier to entry. This has been an active philosophical topic for literal millenia, at the very least lrn2wikipedia.

Admittedly I would feel smugger about this post if I didn't know the reason atheists are morons is that the theists they argue with have never read anything and have no idea what their religion teaches besides Me = Always Good and Right (protip: it doesn't).

They've just seen snippets from it.

Does nationalism have its origins in late medieval England?
During the Hundred Years' War, Henry V of England favoured the use of English in administration over Norman-French. Could this be viewed as an expression of English nationalism, i.e. the assertion of an English national identity based on linguistics in contrast to French culture.

Towards the end of the Hundred Years' War, England began to be viewed as an island nation rather than a dominion of a French noble family.

>shia imamate facing a crisis with its imams in house arrest in Samarra and watched by the abbasids
>many imami agents go rogue and ignore the central imamate
>shia heretics emerge and challenge the imam's followers
>11th imam dies
>no one knows what to do
>the shia split into dozens of heretical sects
>rumors about a child of the 11th imam abound
>the remnant followers of the 11th imam who believe in this 12 imam coalesce around 4 envoys to lead them and they become the twelver shia
>they slowly gain control over the wayward shia and wipe out heretics who declare themselves bab (meaning gate since these guys cant be imams)
>they have to reteach these regained followers about their religion
>at the end of this period the vast majority of imamis are twelver with only a few far flung shia communities not joining the majority
This book was cool. But it's a shame it was more about the institutions of the 4 envoys rather than the story which in incidental in this book.

Should I pretend to be Christian for my aging grandmother?
My grandma has not been herself ever since grandpa died a couple years back. She's had depressive episodes and tried to fall back on her faith but I can tell she is still very anxious about death, about being alone.

I have tried encouraging her as her faith seems to have made her feel better even if it's just that but I am not religious and she knows it so it is rather half hearted.

I thought maybe if I pretended it would help her find peace? I don't know, it might come off as disingenuous or patronizing.

What is the ethically correct option here?

Genesis = mythology
Are we really expected to believe that God completely changed the physics of light just to create rainbows, and not even consistently at that? And what about double rainbows? Is God extra sorry on those days? And why would he allow rainbow effects to exist elsewhere? Such as when light passes through a glass window, or a mist of water? It is much more reasonable that rainbows are just natural phenomena that humans ascribed to God, just like with lightning. But can we blame them? Rainbows and lightning are pretty weird and mysterious. It’s no wonder religion was created out of primitive concepts such as these.

>when it fact it increases the credulity, credibility, and capacity of love
>to do hard things like live for God out of necessity is easy relative to do hard things out of love that God could do himself
people who get angry at the potential outcome of everyone eventually being saved in my opinion are under the egis of the devil imo lol

I legitimately think the best evidence for Christianity is that schizos seem to never have delusions about other religions. Its never "I am mohammed". Its always antichrist this mark of the beast that. I'm not saying a guy who says he is Jesus is right, obviously, but its like these people are seeing past the veil and finding a biblical worldview on the other side. Very strange, though I'm not entirely convinced

Is procreation morally problematic?

It seems like it could be. The child doesn't create his own existence but has it decided for him by his parents. At least in the case of deliberate procreation there is a sense that the parents create the child, essentially imposing the condition of being human "onto" someone else (its hard to talk this way without implying something exists prior to being born that is imposed upon, which is obviously nonsense, but hopefully you see the point).

I dont think this would really be an issue if being a human were solely good, but its not. Like, at all. We are all going to die, we all suffer in some way, we are all subject to the needs of our bodies (for food shelter warmth protection from disease sickness injury etc), in a sense remaining alive is a struggle against this constant breaking down. It all must be worked at, maintained. But we know it's a losing battle because in the end we're all going to die and some of us in horrific manners.

But parents are just like "I want a baby". My sister literally said this and then got pregnant. It's as if buying a car or a new dress or getting a pet. Not really realizing you are subjecting someone to what could be (or in my opinion IS) a great harm.

And the worst part is that , there's literally nothing wrong with not being born !!

The Japanese Army fighting to the last man is the biggest meme of WW2
Japanese soldiers in Hong Kong
I've heard this all my life, but it's just not true.
Now I'm only looking at the Army, not the other branches.
By August 1945 the Japanese Army had roughly about:
>5-6 million men (2.35 million of those were stationed in Japan itself) all ready for war.
While the Japanese Army lost:
>1.5 million men (that includes the war in China going as far back as 1931), mostly from disease, starvation and the elements.
Where did this bullshit come from?
>inb4: b-but wut about muh new guinea guadalcanal iwo jima etc
Yes I know there were a lot of cases of Japanese soldiers fighting to the end, but the vast majority of them didn't fight to the last man, but instead surrendered.
