RE: Favorite Historical Character
Its funny how we look back at historical people as if they are fictional and can have 'favourites' like 'Alexander the (allegedly Tongue ) Great' when in reality despite whatever historical impact they've had on culture or their tactical skills in war (how good they were at slaughter Wink ) they were most likely Hitler-level murderers and conqueres. Evil_monster

But anyways, my favorite historical person...Big Grin would probably be...the ancient Greek scientist Anaximander because he supposedly performed the first scientific experiment, was the mentor of Pythagoras, had ideas about evolution and is called 'the father of cosmology.'

"Humans always measure what they see in front of them to what they already know. They will deny anything outside of that. They are shallow lifeforms, so enthralled with superficial appearances that they fail to see the truth."

Hey, nobody's going to argue with you if you say conquerors are bad Tongue. But don't pull a Godwin. You're better than that!

There are very, very few cases in history of deliberate genocide. It lessens the impact of those particular and extraordinary crimes if you start equating deaths with mass deaths with deliberate mass deaths.

Thomas Paine is one of my favorite son-of-a-bitches.

"All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit. "
