It was only a comparison. Your remark is nonsensical, the Roman Empire didn't end when it adopted Christianity, since that's not how empires work. They don't cease when they change religion, ruler, capital, army, elites, etc. Empires die when they adopt a cultural, moral and ethical system that is ...

Well part of the problem with learning two languages in the same family is that some languages are more different than others, yet are still in the same family. For example, Romanian is a weird Romance language because it never evolved like the other four did due to isolation. Romanian also heavily ...

Okay, so if Byzantium is considered Rome because it was an "official" successor state, then of course it died in 1453. If Byzantium's transition from a Roman-style power to a Greek-style power disqualifies it from being Rome, then the empire ended sometime between 500-800. If Byzantium is ...

Yes. Geography is essentially the context of which history is the content. So if you don't learn geography, history doesn't make any sense.

I think NS has an extremist bias. The idea of conforming a nation to your views seems to really attract more extreme ideologies. If I was told to find 10 anarchists as quickly as possible, I would list the most frequent posters on the Anarchism thread here on the forum. I think more left-wing superd...

I'm a fan of mapping, and I saw once that some mapper had something on NationStates (I don't remember who, and I'm pretty sure their nation CTE'd). I was kind of interested but for some reason didn't sign up. Then around two months later, one of my friends told me about it and I remembered it. I sig...

God of gaps. Would you admit that there is a possibility, no matter how slight, that God actually fills some of those gaps? I'm not asking if you think it's likely, I'm asking if you think it's possible? Depends, the Christian god, no since the Christian god is logically inconsistent. A deistic god...

But can you reproduce it? No. Notice how I'm not saying I can reproduce my evidence either. Does the Bible outright contradict any ideas of the effects of the Big Bang?

You're right. The word in the Complete Jewish Bible is "and", not "now". I would like to argue that because of the ancientness of the language and the fact that it's not English you might be able to say one or the other (or both), but I think we're at a stalemate. It was nice ta...

You can only see fact and fiction through the lens of a 1700 year old anthology of scriptures compiled by a Roman Emperor who needed a monotheistic religion to bring together disparate ethnic groups. That's a new one. Why would Constantine put together a book that states awful things about Rome? Al...
