Board: /his/

"/his/ - History & Humanities" is 4chan's board for discussing and debating history.

Welcome to /his/ - History & Humanities

Herodotus
This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

Did the Chinese used naked soldiers against Vietnamese female warriors?

Trưng sisters
The Vietnamese account of the war between the Vietnamese Trưng sisters and China's Han dynasty.

When China was ruling Vietnam in the Han dynasty the Vietnamese Trưng sisters started a rebellion raising a Vietnamese female army of 80,000 soldiers and thirty six female Vietnamese generals. The Vietnamese Trưng sisters and their thirty six female generals defeated the Chinese first liberating their own village. They then captured 65 cities and citadels across Vietnam after defeating the Chinese armies. The Trưng sisters became queens of an independent Vietnam for three years after driving the Chinese out.

Vietnamese female general Phùng Thị Chính fought her battles with her baby in one hand and a sword in the other killing Chinese soldiers with it. Another Vietnamese female general Phật Nguyệt was said to have caused the most terror to Chinese soldiers. All of the Chinese soldiers were male.

The Han dynasty sent Ma Yuan to reconquer Vietnam. Vietnamese traditions say the all Chinese male army commanded by General Ma Yuan stripped completely naked to fight the Vietnamese female army of the Trưng sisters. Ma Yuan allegedly told his soldiers that whoever could capture the Trưng sisters alive could take them as their wives.

The Chinese men were ordered to strip naked to surprise and shock the Vietnamese women. At first the Trung sisters were shocked and faltered back as naked Chinese men charged towards them but they and their female generals regrouped and made a stand. The Trưng Sisters and their female Vietnamese generals and army fought fiercely cutting down and killing thousands of naked Chinese men as they charged. They cut the heads off thousands of Chinese so the heads and naked corpses piled up. The Chinese army was larger and endless waves of Chinese soldiers kept coming to attack them so the Trưng sisters decided to fight their way out of the battle cutting a path through the Chinese army and committed suicide by jumping in a river.

Hello /his/, few questions:

2. I've read that were was a fairly deep feud between the Junker class and the Nazis, the former believing the latter to be trampling upon their aristocratic privileges. Again, can anyone provide more info on this?

When I perceive a slice of pizza I am struck only with ideas of a pizza-like fashion. For instance, the appearance of cheese, the smell of tomato sauce, and the feeling of hot grease. Nowhere in these ideas is to be found anything material. Of course if there are ideas, then there must be minds to perceive them, so we can see that, as empiricists, we really only need two ontological commitments: ideas exist and minds exist.

Great, so that's out of the way. Now we must ask wherein the source of these ideas lies? After all, given the consistency between my ideas of the world and the apparent consistency between my experiences and the experiences of other minds, it stands to reason that their must be some common source behind them.

Maintaining the ontological simplicity that we already have, there are three possibilities. First, the source of the ideas is my mind. Second, the source of these ideas is some other idea or ideas. Third, the source of these ideas is some other mind.

The first possibility is implausible, for I do not have the mental capacity to imagine the whole world, yet ideas of the world exist even when I'm not think of them. As well, I cannot help but notice that I have no power to change the ideas the strike me. I cannot force myself to perceive a pizza in the way that I perceive my keyboard in front of me. So I am not the source of the ideas.

The second idea is unhelpful since it opens us up to an infinite regress with no real explanation in sight.

That leaves us with only one possibility, that the source of these ideas is some other mind. A very great mind, in fact, that would be capable of imagining all of creation at once. But what could such a mind be besides God? There is nothing else it could be, therefore God exists.

History vs Bible

1554730017392
Why is there no historical records from what is said in the bible?
for instance, in Exodus, There was no such records in Egypt saying there were Jewish slaves or the miracles that is described in the bible.
And how in Genesis 11 claimed that Babel meaning "confused" when in reality it comes from the Babylonians and it's actual definition is Gate of God.
What I also found interesting about Babylonians is that they were the civilization who created the 7 days in a week even before the Jews. the Jews just took its influence from the Babylonians.
If you dig deeply about Zoroastrianism (which is older than Judaism) , you'll find that they believed in the end of the world and believed that a new world will replace it and all the people who done good deeds will be resurrected.

Any more contradictory of the bible?

Sometimes, I wonder if the harshness of life in the middle ages is a bit exaggerated.

Often, at least in pop history, they make it out as though living in the middle ages was nigh impossible. There was a huge population boom in the high middle ages if I remember.

Thread for discussing Italy during 1920-1945, specifically the kingdom of italy under fascist regime, however the lead up to the regime or the following years after 1943 are fine to discuss too.

-Political actions
-Life under the regime
-Conflicts
-Military
-Performance in war
-Fascism and it's correlated phenomenons like the art movement futurism
-Navy
-Air force
-Libyan and Italian occupations

We can also talk about related topics like their relationship with Nazi Germany, Austria, Japan, and other countries but try not to go too much into that.

I will also try to post interesting pics related to the subject at hand.

Chinese and Malay eunuchs castrated in Vietnam

Main_Gate_-_Citadel_of_Hanoi
The Lê dynasty of Vietnam had Chinese and Malay eunuchs in it's imperial palace. Over 100 Chinese young men from the Ming dynasty and an unknown number of Malay young men from the Malacca Sultanate were castrated by the Vietnamese from the 1460s to the 1490s as their ships were blown off course into Vietnam leading them to be captured.

http://www.epress.nus.edu.sg/msl/reign/cheng-hua/year-8-month-7-day-28

>Chen Yi, chief steward guarding the pearl-beds of Guang-dong, memorialized: "People from Nan-hai County were blown by the wind to the country of Annam, and there they were made to serve as soldiers by the king of that country. Later they escaped and, on returning, advised that over 100 Chinese persons whose ships had been blown there, had been detained and castrated or imprisoned." The memorial was sent to the Ministry of Revenue, which requested that despatches be sent to grand coordinators, grand defenders and other officials requiring them to prohibit soldiers and civilians from going abroad as merchants or having private dealings with fan countries, and also requested that the soldiers guarding the pearl-beds be instructed to devise means to prevent such contacts. This was approved.

Assuming the CSA survived the war as an independent entity, how would it develop? I assume it's economy would be on the brink of collapse, so they'd have to do something fast before the whole endeavor fell apart. Would they emancipate the slaves? If so, when? Culturally and militarily, would they take after the Union, Great Britain (who would almost certainly have had to come to the rescue and end the war), or someone else?

10th century Arap BTFO by Pagan Turk

laughing black man
>Turks do not clear of excrements and from urine, and do not wash from the sexual uncleanness and (do not do) other similar things. Turks do not do anything with water, especially in the winter. Turkish women do not cover from their men and from others of them, and also a woman does not cover anything of her body from anybody of the people. And really, in one of the days we stopped at a Turkish man's house and sat down, and the wife of this person sat together with us. And, talking to us, she opened her "fardj" (vagina) and scratched it while we looked at her. Then we closed our faces and said: "Allah, Forgive me!" The husband of hers laughed and said to the translator: "Tell them, - we open it in your presence and you see it, and she protects it so, that there is no access to it. It is better, than if she would cover it and (at the same time) would concede it to somebody"

In the 1930s a famine broke out in Soviet Kazakhstan causing many Kazakh Turk Muslims to try to flee to British India by crossing via Xinjiang and Tibet.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazakh_famine_of_1932%E2%80%9333

The Tibetans under the 14th Dalai Lama's regency massacred thousands of the Kazakh Muslims when they tried to flee from the Soviet Union to India across Tibet in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Tibetan soldiers robbed the Kazakh Muslims and gunned down them and their families or used swords to butcher them. The Tibetans viewed Kazakh Muslims as their traditional blood enemies to be killed on sight with no mercy. The Tibetan army later killed American CIA agent Douglas MacKiernan in 1950 because he was dressed like a Kazakh Muslim and they killed Kazakh Muslims on sight.

The Tibetan attacks against the Kazakh refugees are on p.192 of this Turkish document

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Mackiernan

The surviving Kazakh stragglers who managed to escape the Tibetan slaughters of their people reached the Tibetan border with British India. At first the British border guards viewed them as hostiles and opened fire. The Kazakh survivors were later admitted into British India. Indian Muslim princely rulers like the Muslim Nizam of Hyderabad state paid for the Kazakh's expenses in their refugee camps. After partition and independence in 1947, the Kazakhs relocated to Pakistan. Some Kazakhs moved onto Turkey since Turkey granted asylum to Turkic Muslim peoples. The Kazakh survivors of the Tibetan massacres still live in either Turkey or Pakistan today.

I maintain that this man was responsible for the complete loss of American air parity in the Philippines. And I am willing to defend this position.


And I hold that General MacArthur is unfairly vilified for the defeat in the Philippines. I am also willing to defend this position provided it is understood that I have absolutely no love, or even respect for the man.

>There were no great African empires
Egypt, Mali, Yoruba, Aksum, Nubia, these are just a few great African Empires. Mali contained 500,000 square miles of land

>Africans were stupid
The first measure of count, though primitive (something like a bone with tally marks in it) was found in Africa. The Greeks went to Egypt to study, from which you can deduce they were intelligent people

are white americans the most similar looking to ancient romans ?

NLCaITA
Think about it , white americans are very ethnically mixed , with ancestry from all over europe . Rome during the roman empire was heavily mixed also , with people from all around the empire migrating to rome . Thus its safe to say modern white americans are what the ancient romans looked like ?

The ancient Macedonians were a distinct European people, conscious and proud of their nationality, their customs, their language, and their name. The same applies to the modern Macedonians today.

The ancient Macedonians regarded the ancient Greeks as neighbors, not as kinsmen. The Greeks treated the Macedonians as foreigners ("barbarians") whose native language was Macedonian, not Greek.

The Macedonians spoke their own native language which was unrecognizable by the Greeks. The very label barbarian literally means a person who does not speak Greek. Though Alexander spoke also Greek, loved Homer, and respected his tutor Aristotle, there is much evidence that he hated the Greeks of his day, just like his father Philip II. Philip had razed to the ground the Greek cities on Macedonian territory (including all 32 Greek cities in Chalcidice) and enslaved their inhabitants. Alexander the Great thoroughly destroyed Thebes.

His Asian empire has not once been described as "Greek", but is correctly called Macedonian for he won it with an army of 35,000 Macedonians and only 7,600 Greeks, and similar numbers of Thracians and Illyrians who were all forced to fight with their Macedonian overlords. The overwhelming number of Greeks however, 50,000 in total , had however, distinguished themselves on the side of the Persians and fought fiercely till the end against the Macedonians. For instance, at the battle of Granicus there were 20,000 Greeks, out of which the Macedonians killed 18,000 and the 2,000 survivors were sent in chains to Macedonia.(Quintus Curtius Rufus,
Roman Historian) Arrian
(Ancient Greek Historian

The Campaigns of Alexander)specifically speaks of the "old racial rivalry" between Macedonians and Greeks that characterized this battle. At the battle of Issus, there were 30,000 Greeks on the side of the Persians to fight Alexander.

FB_IMG_1542826031663
Someone should make a doomsday countdown when humanity is finished

The CO 2 numbers are fact. The CO 2 latency period of decades is fact. The Methane numbers are fact. The feedback loops are fact. The melting ice is fact. The ocean and land temp increases are fact. Exponential as a mathematical concept is fully understandable. Global dimming is a fact. The baseline is 1750, not 1850 and we are easily past 1.5 C and already very near 2.0; actually 4.0 in the Arctic where it really matters. There are known temperature numbers for decline and failure of agriculture which we are now flirting with. The world population continues to grow as does the use of fossil fuels. The 6th mass extinction is factually underway. Literally nothing of a meaningful nature was done 40 years ago when it mattered and nothing is being done or will be done even now when it is too late. Human beings will vanish from this planet in very short order, probably years.
