Why were Christianity and Islam so successful at expansion and mass conversion compared to other religions?

If the Aztecs had been more powerful, could they have converted Spaniards to Quetzalcoatl worship?
Seems doubtful, even though the Aztecs were very devout.

If the Romans, who were powerful, had been more devout, could they have converted their subjects?
Again, seems doubtful.

Maybe polytheism is weaker? But then again how come Judaism never managed to mass convert people as well as Christianity and Islam did?

How do we explain the success of Islam and Christianity at expansion vis-a-vis other religions?

The memes of Christianity and Islam were developed and fleshed out at a later point in time where the creators had more knowledge of language-magic.

They can't exist with other religions for long AND they aren't "ethnic"
>>
>>3398912
Unlike other religions (but somewhat like Hinduism and Buddhism), Christianity and Islam were developed and integrated into the concept of Imperium, Roman and Persian specifically.

Was it Paranoia?

If the allies had occupied the whole of germany after WW2, and not just the Rhineland, could they have prevented Hitlers rise to power?

shit I meant WW1
>>
Probably not. Europe at the time had spent so much time, effort and money just to get Germany and its' allies to surrender that constant military occupation of the whole nation would have been impossible. If anything it might have increased Hitler's rise because the whole of Germany would have seen itself, after twenty years of peace, as being under the boot of other powers. Well, moreso than Hitler told them they were, anyway.

I wonder what would have happened if they tried to partition it back into the old states.

The heart as a symbol appeared in the 15th century.

Nah. If you look at pic related, you can simplify it to its most basic lines, and arrive at the classic heart shape.

The origin of the heart symbol is the heart, you dipshit, most probably animal hearts, since those would have been more commonly seen.

What are some topics in American history that would be interesting, I want some recommendations for my Paper due in a few months. Any recommendations
4 posts and 2 images submitted.

American history becomes really uninteresting after the Civil War, pick something from before then and you're good to go.

I'd recommend the Quasi War

I was thinking of doing the Spanish American war and how it affected America's influence in south america.

It didn't end well for South America

"Briefly describe the approximate timing and sequence of major revolutions within human society."

This is a question that I have to answer for a course that I'm taking. Can anybody help me out here? Google isn't helping.

Well think it out
First, what are the 'major revolutions' in human history?
>>
>>3398069

They start, then they end. Brief enough?
>>
I'm kinda stumped on this too, which is why I asked here. How could I possibly list every revolution? Is it talking about revolutions like the Industrial Revolution or like the Russian Revolution?

What's the purpose of philosophy as an academic field?

It looks like mental masturbations over useless or over discussed stuff to create unexistant problems

Like your thread OP?
>>
What I said the purpose of any academic field? Read the damn books yourself. That includes STEM shit. I taught myself HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Java, and Python with only resources I found on 4chan. The same goes for Indian and Chinese philosophy. There is no excuse for academia.

If philosophy equals to a thread on a tibetan cinerama BBS then it is pretty garbage

Any archaeological evidence backing that up?
No? Alright then

>>3397996
There have been multiple finds of byzantine and arab coins in Finland. Both of which was commonly brought over by swedish varangians. This is obvious proof that Swedes even back then lived in Finland
>>
Don't you mean Swedish Viking queens?
