Let's have a discussion on the accolades of Alexander the Great and his empire.

Great leader or Greatest?

Had he stayed alive and pushed towards the Ganges could he have conquered India?

If he had amassed such an empire could the later Mongolian invasions had a different outcome?

What do you think the historical implications of this would be?

He should've stayed out of Diogenes' sunlight.

Mad props on getting an empire as huge as the Roman Empire in just 10 years.

He sure did.

What kind of world would it be if India, Syria, and Africa were all under Greek territory from 300bc to now?

How weird right?

Nothing would have changed. He would have conquered a few more provinces, but he'd still die eventually and the wars of the Diadochi would still happen, the empire would still split.

Empires don't last for very long unless they have a strong succession policy. Alexander's empire did not have imperial succession, it was still under Macedonian succession which inherent made it doomed to failure.

How would he have fared if he went up against the Romans and their fuck huge manpower reserves?

also, can anyone recommend some good books on Alexander and/or the Diadochi wars?
>>
>>59674
Why didn't he conquer Bithynia?
>>
>>59751
I doubt there would be Christianity or Islam, we sould all be worshiping the Olympians gods, which were a better religion in every way.

also it always amazes me, Alexander conquered everything they told him was there, and then when he finished he found more shit and conquered that also.

Please. The saving grace of Abrahamic religion is its simplicity. God, Devil, heaven, hell.

You need a fucking encyclopedia to even recognize all the Greek gods.

The real question is:

Would India still have designated shitting streets if alexander conquered it?
>>
>>65450

Yes, and in addition to that they would be in crippling debnt.
>>

>Mongolian invasions
literally who cares, utter meme empire and thousands of years in between to the point that its impossible to extrapolate the effects.

The best thing with the Greek Gods is that they behave human, so you can judge them freely, understand their pain and dilemmas, and generally develop your own moral code.
The religion promotes critical thinking and self improvement.

Abrahamic religions are designed to control population, a massive hive-mind with rules that cant be broken, which are in time becoming outdated.

>to now
they would have been assimilated just like they were assimilated in real life because Greek kingdoms ruled all that land for centuries until they simply ceased to really be Greek
