I know all to well who he is, do you know who the Sumerians were? Do you know who Abraham was? Do you know what the Navagraha is? If not you still live in the american bubble this world was invented when columbus discovered America.

Do you know why the Incas and the Pyramids look similar, my ancestry built this world, dont think a reformist who got them burned at the stake was a unique figure. Marthin was an ambitious man who doesnt deserve to be mentioned in the history books.


What does any of that have to do with Martin Luther........and yes I know who and what all those things are, again still doesnt have anythign to do with what I asked you

LoL Martin Luther lead the reformation of the church to stop future atrocities like the Crusades, and persecution of people, especially the burning of people for being "heratics"

Again you obviously have no idea what youre talking about

We are primates, learn that fact, we are children of this earth, learn that fact, we are parasites, all we do, and will ever do is to defile this planet.

Martin Luthers own words:



Martin Luther wrote quite a lot about witches, demonology, and sorcery, citing personal experiences with demonic powers and his own mother’s experiences with a “witch” neighbor who allegedly killed her own children. He said, “There is no compassion to be had for these women; I would burn all of them myself, according to the law, where it is said that priests began to stone criminals to death.”


Absolute power corrupts

You dont make any sense what so ever man, its like im talking to a bot youre just throwing random words in .........




He consistently rejected the idea of a Holy War, "as though our people were an army of Christians against the Turks, who were enemies of Christ. This is absolutely contrary to Christ's doctrine and name"


again you have no idea what youre talking about

I was SO suspicious of the vids in the OP...

After about 30 seconds in, I thought they looked FAR too professional to be legit.

I wanted to find out who was behind them and what they were trying to accomplish.

No luck, but finally found the videos by chance...

This is why I ALWAYS check out a source before hand.

About the men behind Real Crusades History:

About the men behind Real Crusades History:

RCH founder J. Stephen Roberts holds a degree in medieval history and has researched and written about the Crusades for over fifteen years. He is also a writer of historical fiction and producer of a series of video presentations on the subjects of the Crusades and relevant topics.

Stephen's partner Hugh H. James retired from a career as an architect ten years ago and has since devoted his time to medieval and Crusades studies, writing of historical fiction, and acquiring a collection of medieval swords and military artifacts. He holds a degree in architecture.

Regular RCH contributor and editor Strider R. holds a M.A. in military history and served in the United States Marine Corps as a commissioned officer. He currently writes scholarly articles and papers on the subjects of the Crusades and medieval warfare.



What makes the Crusades so fascinating is their melding of violence and piety, of love and war. Crusaders faced incredible dangers for the love of their faith and their people. They were brutal, fierce wars fought for the most heartfelt of passions. In this, the Crusades are truly human: an example of man striving for the divine.

Absolutely! Someone who glorifies the Crusades for the cardinal virtues and chivalry, without any sort of institutional backup, yes Great!!

No, it really isnt, are you a Mason?

Im with you there, there is a HUGE effort to revise history and flip everything on its head.......Im not sure WHY really

I know the Crusades were full of atrocity on both sides but, to try and spin it like those vids did, just ridiculous

Whats worse people fall for it because they wont research on their own, and people that make videos like that, know that.....

Cause you wont listen to anyone else then your own ideals of what you know, which is a set of cardinal virtues, which you follow blindly with a pinch of american patriotism.

Umm no I just go with the facts, you were wrong on Martin Luther, and apparently have no idea who he is, so I posted about him for proof.....

youve rambled at length about god knows what

Youve claimed that all ideals come from religion which is also false

Youve said all wars were due to Christianity , I pointed out Maos killing of millions and the fact that hes atheist

If anyone refuses to see anything, its you, because obviously facts dont matter

you wont even watch the videos above, because the truth apparently doesnt matter, thoroughly refutes the videos in the OP

Id say thats denial of truth

The lawbook comes from religion, your ideals comes from religion, your science is religious to a certain aspect, your school program is of a religious nature, your theoretical science is religious, astronomy is religious, time is religious. Everything you do in your ordinary life based on a clock is made with religion.

Whatever you think afterwards, is made for you in your little bubble of ignorance.

We are the original builders, you and your kindred are to delussional to make it work. We take over from october cause you failed.

Im ignorant but youre trying to say that Ideals come from religion...........

Thats the funniest thing ive read all day , lol thank you for the name calling while you display exactly what youre accusing me of lol

Irony

There are plenty of athiests that have ideals, Mao had ideals that killed millions, but he was an atheiest.......

Again you have no idea what youre talking about.....

I'm certainly no fan of what ISIS is doing. Don't see what that has to do with Islam, though. Or where I mentioned being horrified about anything (not that I am or am not, just pointing out that you're reading your own bias into what I said, which isn't what you want to think I said).

But if you're attempting to play "tit for tat" (a fairly useless game here, if you ask me), in the same vein, judging from your avatar glorifying these horrific events, "Christianity" doesn't seem to have changed much either, then...


A lot of Christians would be offended blaming their beliefs on something done by Catholics, Contrary to popular belief, they are quite different.

I have no time for religion. Religion has killed more innocent individuals than any one other cause. I don't care what religion you profess, many have died to support it.
