Import heroic Nigerians to disarm the violent ones.

2018-04-01 14:36:24 UTC  

@Mother I don't think so.

2018-04-01 14:36:44 UTC  

@Mother It isn't normal for one people to displace another in their own religion.

"An Italian Carabinieri police captain who worked in the neighborhood, Nunzio Carbone, was his godfather, or sponsor, at Saturday’s baptism service.

Carbone and his fellow policemen helped Ogah get his immigration papers. The Nigerian now works as a stockman at a warehouse for a charity organization. "

2018-04-01 14:38:13 UTC  

Bet it's a pro-migration charity.

2018-04-01 14:38:29 UTC  

This is so pozzed.

2018-04-01 14:38:49 UTC  

They find one migrant who actually isn't a criminal and throw open the Vatican to him.

2018-04-01 14:39:29 UTC  

Although being a former illegal immigrant I suppose he was a criminal <:smug:368620082198216704>

2018-04-01 14:40:34 UTC  

I'm sure his children will be law-abiding Italians.

2018-04-01 14:53:53 UTC  

Waiting for miracles at this point.

Modern idea of "Semitism' has nothing in common with the ancient world

2018-04-01 15:15:07 UTC  

Ancient Levant was composed of several distinct cultures such as Hellenic, Semitic, Assyrian-Armenian-Babylonian type, the Canaanite world and all non-Jewish polities existing from Judea to Galilee, as well as pagan herding cultures living in the Arabian peninsula

2018-04-01 15:15:40 UTC  

Then we move towards Berbers, Hellenes and Egyptians living from Egypt to Mauritania, the Nubians, Phoenicians, Carthagians

2018-04-01 15:16:14 UTC  

No, it has a lot in common.

2018-04-01 15:16:25 UTC  

this was obviously a meeting place of distinct strains of races, types, derivations, spiritual outlooks

2018-04-01 15:16:37 UTC  

Semitic peoples shared then, as they do now, a commonality of language and race.

2018-04-01 15:16:55 UTC  

It ain'nt necesarily sooooooo

2018-04-01 15:17:15 UTC  

"Semitic peoples' yes, but ancient Levant wasn't even majority semitic to begin with

2018-04-01 15:17:29 UTC  

This is like saying because Germans are different from Russians, "indo-European" isn't a viable category.

2018-04-01 15:17:38 UTC  

It's noise.

2018-04-01 15:17:48 UTC  

Moderns when they say "Semitic" they apply it to historical period as if all Middle East was some kind of natural semitic breeding ground

2018-04-01 15:18:07 UTC  

That allows not so clever types such as Varg to declare that Semites hate nature and everything because they live in desert

2018-04-01 15:18:28 UTC  

Forgetting that the "desert" was a polytheist place for thousands of years

2018-04-01 15:18:42 UTC  

With cults similar or not similar to European ones

2018-04-01 15:18:56 UTC  

That's nice.

2018-04-01 15:19:46 UTC  

Canaanites for example praised El and the goddess Asherah in a pretty "Roman" fashion

2018-04-01 15:20:07 UTC  

Erecting altars under tree shades and offering sacrifices

2018-04-01 15:20:16 UTC  

i was talking about Semites and then you popped in saying not all middle easterners were semites.

2018-04-01 15:20:23 UTC  

Has nothing to do with what I was saying.

2018-04-01 15:20:58 UTC  

Yes, but I began with "Modern idea of semitism...." not mentioning you specifically at all

2018-04-01 15:21:09 UTC  

So you were talking to yourself at me?

2018-04-01 15:21:15 UTC  

are you an academic?

2018-04-01 15:21:23 UTC  

No

2018-04-01 15:21:29 UTC  

You should be.

2018-04-01 15:22:07 UTC  

"Ideal-types" that intellectuals tend to harbor tend to distort things, sometimes fatally

2018-04-01 15:22:48 UTC  

You see yourself as more pragmatic?

2018-04-01 15:22:56 UTC  

Hey, what's up?

2018-04-01 15:23:02 UTC  

My cock.

2018-04-01 15:23:22 UTC  

No, I do not mean to propose pragmatism, but sensibility
