BTW, on the list of characters, it says that I don't have an element, but I do. I'm pretty sure it was Ytterbium. Or Yttrium. I get the two mixed up.

quote:
Side Note: I would also like to state that in places Africa is attached to Asia and Europe. So couldn't it be Eurasica?
No, three reasons:
Africa is not "attached" to Eurasia, it once was, but in the 1860s (if I recall correctly), the Suez Canal was built.
The more important reason is that Europe and Asia share one major continental plate, whereas Africa has its own.
Look at a map, a division between Europe and Asia is extremely arbitrary, the only geographic feature seperating them are the Ural and Caucasus mountains, I believe. Africa is a distinct landmass.

I think in English. In fact, I often subvocalize my thoughts. When reading, especially for enjoyment, I stop thinking the words and just start experiencing the story. I think this is why I don't care too much for "literary masterpieces". I don't read the individual words, so the nuances are lost on me.

Stop it guys. You are giving us theists a bad name. I am not bothered that you believe religious truths without any questioning of them. It is certainly a lot easier than questioning everything you believe. I am very disturbed that you think that not understanding something is a valid proof that it exists. Leave the prosletyzation to those who are better versed in their faith, else you could risk turning people away from what you believe to be the truth.

My understanding was that Jesus spoke both a Galilean dialect of Aramaic, Koine Greek, as well as Hebrew, although Hebrew was mainly for reading the scriptures and such.

I used to swim and play basketball. Now, I get barely any exercise, except for lots of walking. Oh, I'm also decent at darts, not sure if that counts.

"The Executive Committee of the Division of Psychologists Interested in Religious Issues supports the conclusion that, at this time, there is no consensus that sufficient psychological research exists to scientifically equate undue non-physical persuasion (otherwise known as "coercive persuasion", "mind control", or "brainwashing") with techniques of influence as typically practiced by one or more religious groups. Further, the Executive Committee invites those with research on this topic to submit proposals to present their work at Divisional programs."

Curiously enough, the government of Brazil forbids people to make contact with certain tribes in the amazon, so as not to "spoil" their culture.

[quote] And as to the charge that "Cultural Genocide" is a misappropriation of a very politically and emotionally charged term, I will say two things. First of all, they aren't my own words. Second, what would you call the systematic, government-sanctioned imprisonment, torture, and brainwashing of several successive entire generations of a people?
quote:

The most popular term I know for the decline of the Native American civilization is democide. Brainwashing is also a very loaded word, in my opinion. A better term would be assimilation, or even forcible assimilation. This is nothing new, by a long shot. Throughout history, the more powerful and technologically robust civilization has assimilated its less sophisticated neighbors. I'm all for the preservation of culture, but is it truly wrong to introduce people to a more sophisticated society?

quote:
If it weren't for the Soviets, we would never have won the war, period. Hitler could have stomped the remainder of the Allies like cockroaches in Italy and France if he had a hundred more divisions to work with there.
I'm not so sure. I think the allies could have pulled it off, with some heavy use of nuclear weapons. No one can conquer and hold the entirety of Europe succesfully.
Hitler and Co. could have succesfully held off the invasion of Normandy and the invasion of Italy for a while. But, once the U.S. finished off Japan, they would have been able to shift all of their power to Europe.
The U.S. and Germany were both fighting on two fronts against two very different enemies.
Still, Russian forces greatly sped up the war and spared millions of Allied lives.
