    Ok, I revise my opinion of your argument from incorrect to having too many differing assumptions to produce a valuable discussion. Germany was close geographically, but not militarily to capturing...
  2. Bullshit, I corrected you once, but you persist...

    Bullshit, I corrected you once, but you persist in your propaganda. Yes, the USA invaded the Philippines to take it from Spain. No one is defending the Spanish American war, though I will note that...

    It is fatuous to think that Japan not attacking Pearl Harbor would have led to the fall of Moscow. I don't even understand why you think the two were related. America was giving Lend-Lease aid to...

    I thought they picked AR as an abbreviation so that people would confuse the two, while actually naming it something else starting with an A so it wouldn't be regulated like an assault rifle.

    Ah, yes, once again Jolly Penguin goes on to make apologetics for the Axis, for some "unknown" reason.

    Yes, Japan was a threat to the USA. We know that because they attacked us. It really is...

    First of all OS Kirk was young kirk. Kirk's whole schtick was that he was the youngest person to become captain of a starship. Being a wunderkind is baked into the character.

    Second, Shatner's...
  7. Well, I just got done with the Americans and...

    Well, I just got done with the Americans and give it a 9.5/10. It is a truly excellent piece of work, with brilliant writing and exceptional acting, especially from Keri Russell, who made you worry...

    Some texts are accepted provisionally because they are the only text available. For example, the Mayan texts. Unlike the Bible, where there is a wealth of other information, which often contradicts...

    I predict the next National Security Advisor will be some blowhard that gets on Fox News and talks shit about brown people.

    Because, traditionally, trades were inherited.

    You are correct in saying that the phrasing implies he wasn't a carpenter himself. Though it would be extremely likely he would have helped his...

    The evidence presented at the trial stands: regardless of his rank, Eichmann was giving orders on his own responsibility. Or do you regard his trial as being unfair? Why would that be?

    How many...

    No argument there. If it weren't for various other factors, we would thank Trump for discrediting this guy.

    Who the fuck is even left?

    In order to do that, we'd first have to assume what you've been unable to prove: That the characters were real people, and the texts are authentic documents with real authors. Even assuming "someONE...

    I hate Bolton, but I hope he spills. He's the kind of forthright loudmouth who might.

    One thing to say about Trump; he's chewing up and shitting out old guard republicans like a huge, orange...

    Absolutely, what is your point?

    Seward (or Blair? I don't remember) to Stanton: If the cause is lost, we will hang.
    Stanton: If the cause is lost, I don't want to live.

    The fact that Germany let so many off the hook does not mean they didn't deserve worse. And Israel would have if they could. They wouldn't have been extradited because they had already been...

    Just because the idea of "Omnipotence" had not been formally written down in some philosophical text, that does not mean that the concept couldn't exist or was inconceivable. "Almighty" is a similar...

    It occurs to me that this is a problem that stops being a problem if you stop believing in an omnipotent god.

    For a non-omnipotent god, the benefit is obvious: Cultivating faith is the same as...

    Yes, but if it actually did make an anachronistic architectural reference, that would be interesting. The only architectural description I recall from the new testament was the structure of heaven...
