    Fight? What for. Any educated man who knows what modern science, biology, and history have to say about these things would be unimpressed by this poor attempt at a logical fallacy. It’s simple, correlation does not equal causation. You might as well title this modern science vs. fanaticism of the 18th century. I’ve noticed that it’s usually only people who have strong political beliefs who believe this argument holds any truth. Educated people who are interested in a variety of things tend to not even care for discussions (at least not if it concerns only the racial aspect) this topic… Read more »

    Indeed, baked potatoes truely are the greatest of foods. Have you ever had fingerlings slow roasted with olive oil and pepper? Delicious.

    I have never even heard of fingerlings! I looked it up, seems like your recipe is seriously worth trying out. Except I have to go see if those are available here. I’m a big fan of olive oil too so this is very promising.

    I’ll be over here asleep while the ignorant and uneducated argue over this nonsense. Evolutionary Science VS Socio-Economical spread of resources and wealth is just ridiculous and only something truly dumbass people would argue over. Any scientist that has studied Biological Anthropology would find this little theory retarded. Groger’s Rule: All humans are darker near the equator. Bergmann’s Rule: People near the equator are taller/thinner. All humans are genetically the same, no one in science has ever found a way to distinguish from race to race and race is a cultural/social catogory, not biological in which people divide or include… Read more »

    I never realised that Canadians were a very pale green before, but after seeing this I took a little look outside, and turns out they are. Which is just goddamn creepy.

    Hey, hey guys.

    Remember the North African/Middle Eastern empires that ruled the world while Europe was a bunch of unruly savages diddling goats?

    Cool story bros.

    Not to be a racist, but the only empires that ever ruled the world in a literal sense were European. The Middle Eastern/North African civilizations never stretched farther than, well, the Middle East and North Africa. Although they were impressive empires, they pale in comparison to 16-19th century European imperialism, when single countries ruled complete continents. And if you want to stay contemporary, Alexander and the Romans were European.
    Of course, all this has nothing to do with race, but more with geo-political circumstances, like the way civilizations around the Mediterranean sea developed.

    British Empire – 36.6 million km² – 1922

    Mongol Empire – 33.2 million km² – 1268

    They barely even had the wheel in 1268. Imagine a Mongol army with guns and ships.

    Actually, the Chinese (who were then ruled by the Mongols) were the first to use cannons in battle in 1132. Also, the Mongols used ships to invade Japan (without success). Much of the territory they conquered were the scarcely populated steppes of Central Asia. Nevertheless, it’s very impressive how they destroyed every state they ran into. If it wasn’t for Genghis Khan’s death, they might have conquered Europe too.
    By the way, the wheel was invented in the 5th millennium BC.

    Where did you get those numbers from? I’d like to look up some other empires.

    The only true awe-inspiring European Empires were the modern ones, when it was basically people with 16th century tech fighting people with spears and slings. When you look at things like the Chinese Empire, the Mongol Empire, the Moorish Empire – not only in size but also technological advancement, you realize post-Roman empires were less about actual Empires and more about more advanced civilizations destroying/enslaving less advanced ones and taking their shit.

    Actually, screw that. Pretty much every European Empire, ever, was about moving somewhere, subjugating natives and taking their shit.

    Your division fails. The Holy Roman Empire and the Carolingian Empire (both European) resemble the Chinese Empire in the sense that they all consisted of people of similar origin. And the Roman, the Mongol and the Moorish empires were all formed by one states conquering a bunch of other states, just like the modern European empires.
    Also, controlling people and taking their possessions is something every state does. Today, it’s called ‘police force’ and ‘taxes’. Of course, slaughtering millions just to enrich yourself is wrong, but it’s something each of the empires you mentioned have done.

    Dear KiltedForbes:

    This data can’t be correlated together. The first diagram is from “http://anthro.palomar.edu/adapt/adapt_4.htm” and is Data for native populations collected by R. Biasutti prior to 1940.
    The second diagram is from Wiki detailing results from 2007.

    67 years difference – such a Fail!

    P.S. Go Australia!

    Dude, if you want people to argue about it, you could at least explain the second graphic yourself. That’s just a lazy attempt at trolling.

    all throughout history, the great empires of the world have naturally been of the superior races dominating the inferior races The Egyptian empire was a race of tan-skinned people dominating the inferior black race The Roman Empire was of southern europeans dominating the slavic people The initial conquest of russia was of Scandanavians moving south and dominating the slavs and mongols,….then this was followed up centuries later by what became the Russians dominating the slavs and middle eastern countries and forming the soviet union the Reich was of Germans dominating the slavics the united states was of europeans dominating the… Read more »
