    There is no evidence for those claims, and it is extremely unlikely. The pope influence and knowledge outside of Europe at that time was very little, and the Byzantine Empire, which owed no...
  3. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    Ok.




    There's nothing self-evident here. Everybody is politically motivated, even those who claim they are "neutral". The only thing you've done here is state the obvious.

    Post 229 does not have any facts that prove Trump knew about Epstein sexual taste as you claim.

    So investigating Hillary.and finding nothing was a waste of money, but investigating and finding nothing was well spent.

    Contrary to what people like you would like want to believe. Hillary lost...

    Re: On Islam's strength's and weaknesses.

    The copy of Hislop's book I downloaded from.rhe internet listed a date of 1916, but I see now that was merely the date the book was published, and Hislop wrote it earlier, in 1853.

  8. Re: Jeffrey Epstein arrested for sex trafficking, assets seized

    Do you actually have something called facts to back up your assertions? So far I haven't seen any.
