Something Awful: Roman persecution of christians (hated weebs)
ADTRW: Christians in hiding
Early 4chan: Early christianity (when /b/ was anime random)
/b/: Islamic countries that used to be christian (there used to be anime related stuff but now there tends to be more porn)
/jp/: orthodox christians (these 2 boards were just /a/ where they liked anime and otaku culture. They split based on internal differences, it's not that /jp/ is an spinoff of /a/)
/v/: protestant (has radical differences in anime taste with /a/ but still likes some)
I think 4chan in general could be the ottoman empire.

/a/ - development of Gnosticism
/pol/ - Steppe hordes
They have numerous factions constantly infighting and somehow share a border with every other board. Every now and then they spill out and invade a board forever leaving a mark on its culture. Attempts by other boards to make inroads into /pol/ inevitably fail.

This is shockingly accurate.
Dank memes are 21 century dadaism.
Permanent meme spouting and nobody know who is trolling whom.
Fuck, now I can't stop seeing the Cambodian genocide as the beta uprising. Send the normies to the killing fields!
>There will never be a period in time as nice as that board.
/an/ - pre-history (and before humans).
they do talk about dinosaurs on /an/. and about how birds are dinosaurs. :)
/mlp/ as the Mongol empire is pretty accurate started out as a small cartoon with a bunch of different little groups liking it who got together then spread out over the entire internet and their influence is felt to this day even though they physically aren't around anymore
I like talking about nature with /an/, but they can get a bit hysterical about pets.
