Actually, you are. Especially when you point out the sexual activities and then say that the fall of those civilizations fell soon after.

Quote:
but it is interesting looking at the timeframe of when sexuality reached its peak, and how soon the civilization fell.
Except the data doesn't even support a correlative conclusion. Rome fell 300 years after it reached its sexual peak. The sexual peak =/= the fall of the civilization.

Quote:
with rome, there are several factors. politics, spreading an army too thin, uprisings. you mentioned several reasons for sparta. with egypt and japan (edo period more specifically), i too, doubt sexuality was the source of the downfall, it's just interesting to look at those timeframes, that is all.
@Bolded: then why the hell did you make a post specifically citing sexual "deviance" and try to make the conclusion that said deviance was intertwined with the civilizations' downfalls? When Num clearly pointed out that they weren't and a little bit of research would've led you to the same conclusion as him.

Re: homosexuality is it just......

ever heard the saying, when you assume, you make an ass out of you and me.

what do you define as the fall of rome? because hell, what do you define as the birth of rome? because if you're talking about democratic rome (which is a laughable statement, but that's what several historians call it) only lasted circa 200 years. rome was the first true democracy to the known world. that is what i'm referring to. at its sexual peak, you have orgies, homosexuality, beastiality, some weird shit going on. you had celebritism going on. you also had political corruption, and what was once the greatest army on the face of the earth, becoming stretched too thin to patrol it's borders. enter the germanic tribes, mongols, and muslims. boom, fall of rome.

when a lot of people refer to rome in the past, they're talking about democratic rome, when it was ran by its senate, and caesar was a figurehead. not the other way around, when rome was a monarchy. which this in and of itself opens a whole new can of worms, which can get really difficult.

back to the point, do i think the peak of sexuality played some role in each demise no matter how small, yes. Do i think it was the source, no.

Soon? Centuries after the fact for you is "soon"? Sparta had its sexual peak in the IV Century BC and only fell IV century AC. That's 700~800 between the events. It also took centuries for Rome and Ancient Egypt.

Also, you got it backwards for Japan. Meiji Japan was more liberal sexually than Edo's, and the same thing can be said about post-WW II and pre-WW II.

I find it funny, because Sparta was Roman (monarchy during the time of Amino Domino). Really funny seeing how many historians have the fall of Greece (as a nation) circa 500-400 B.C., depending on which you choose to believe. Then you have the Persians having a small rule until the monarchy in Rome took over. (Not getting into the whole Roman monarchy and democracy thing, but they are two different entities on how the empire was ruled and governed.)

And then Japan, really.... kinda funny how in ancient Japan, pre-Edo (sorry, because this is the era that I meant for Japan), polygamy was the norm. Prostitution, homosexuality among men, and bestiality were common forms of sexual activity for that era.

Oh for fuck's sake, what twisted timeline are you referring to? Did you suddenly forgot there was a Roman EMPIRE after the Roman Republic that everybody and their mothers refer to when the Roman Empire pops up? This isn't rocket science. Although if you're talking about the Roman Civilization, started with the Roman Kingdom at 753 BC and ended with the Roman Empire at 476 AC.

Yes, when the Roman Republic ended, orgies and homosexuality and whatnot were the rage, but the Roman Civilization did not decline at that point. On the other hand, it gained more than half of both territory and population at the peak of the Empire. Due to the expansion and later conversion to Christianity, such levels of debauchery preceded the fall of the Empire by centuries. CENTURIES.

That'd be Classical Greece. Now you're forgetting Hellenistic Greece that lasted as a whole until 146 B.C, funny how you forget stuff. Also, Sparta had a special status in the Roman Republic/Empire, due to laconophilia.

Quote:

Persians having a small rule? Talk about a vestigial rule: 10 years in the first invasion (without Athens and Sparta) and roughly 2 years in the second invasion. And what was from 492-481 BC and 480-478 BC, the romans only got Greece in, as I said, 146 BC.

If that's enough to consider the decline of a nation, then many European countries are fucked, considering Napoleon and Hitler.

Quote:

Now I'm worried about what exactly you think "declining nation" means. Although Japan never reached the well's bottom, it had 2 major events that placed Japan on hot water: the Edo Period, due to various restrictions and seclusion from foreign influences and WW II because of nuclear mushrooms and other shenanigans.

So... how did you miss that, between the Momoyama Period and the Meiji Restoration that pulled Japan out of the crapper, 265 years passed? Seriously, the more I talk about this, the more I think it's sexual restrictions that might doom nations, not the other way around.

Re: homosexuality is it just......

if you want to get technical, the roman empire rose and fell numerous times. why do you think you different greece eras as you've mentioned? it's because of the many times that rome rose and fell.

rome reached its pinnacle when it was labeled as the great democracy, no one refutes this information and history. it held the most land, and as a single civilization, had the highest population.

when i say demise, or fall i'm talking about that era no longer reaching its prominence and being in a serious decline.

if you seriously want to go tit for tat, this could go on forever, considering how much history you are looking at. especially considering the roman empire, you're looking at numerous conspiracy theories. the point is, at the fall of the egyptian empire, the fall of japan (end of the warrior so to speak ie. shogun era), and the fall of rome; people were getting freaky with any and everyone and thing.

Yeah, that's a problem, since when people normally talk about demise, it's pretty much the end of said civilization/nation. If passing by eras can be summarized as "rise and fall" then France, for example, rose and fell quite a few times: Absolute Kingdom of France, Constitutional Kingdom of France, First French Republic, First French Empire, Bourbon's France, July Kingdom of the French, Second French Republic, Second French Empire, Third French Republic, Vichy and Nazi Frances, Fourth French Republic and now the Fifth French Republic. Funny thing is that, even with the Nazi occupation, France never lost its sovereignty.

Jesus, the French must have been humping madly!

I might as well ask for some evidence to back your claims that doesn't come from a right-wing nutjob, because this is getting ridiculous.

Re: homosexuality is it just......

Quick jab about France in WWII... without getting into conspiracy theories, you can thank Great Britain for that little fact that they never lost their sovereignty.

And as far as being radical, I could say that you sound like a left-wing nut job. Radical is radical.

And for the evidence you're asking for, it's supported by left-leaning historians. And oh yeah, they're the ones with a lot of the conspiracy theories as well. Not that the right-leaning ones don't have theirs.

Quotes for noobs (learn how to break up a quote)
Quote:
Originally Posted by minato uchiha View Post

So you can post the second bit and i shouldnt be allowed to if i dont tell you? Why be so rude?

Anyways, here is a quotes for noobs guide


1. A basic quote

[*QUOTE][*/QUOTE]

(the * need to be removed for it to work, I put them in so you can see the text) is a basic quote that just wraps something in a quote without saying who quoted it who quoted so

[*QUOTE]this is a quote[*/QUOTE] without any * would look like
Quote:
this is a quote

Edit: there is a button for this, it looks like a speech bubble. If you select text and then press the button the selected text will automatically be wrapped with the quote tag


2. A quote that says who said it

[*QUOTE=who said it][*/QUOTE] this adds who said the post, manually putting that there can be useful when quoting something external. Example:

[*QUOTE=Mangastream]Remember all you sexy bastards out there, Naruto, Bleach, OP, FT, etc. all on break this week. Feel free to take your rage out on us[*/QUOTE] without any * would look like
Quote:
Originally Posted by Mangastream
Remember all you sexy bastards out there, Naruto, Bleach, OP, FT, etc. all on break this week. Feel free to take your rage out on us
3. A quote that says who said it and links to the post where it was said

[*QUOTE=who said it;X][*/QUOTE]

Where X is the post number.

For the post that i originally quoted it would look like this

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey, how do you break it up please and if your not willingly to tell me, then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]

That is what you get when you press the quote button.

4. Breaking up a quote

Now that you know how quotes work it all boils down to preference, how you want it to look like and how you want to do it.

One way of doing it is copying the latter part of the original quote [*/QUOTE] and then pasting it after each section you break up, write your reply, choose the text you want then paste it after that portion, repeat till you finish the go back and copy then paste the first part of the text at the beginning of each portion of text. Of course you can immediately copy and paste both parts of a poste so that you dont forget one in the end.

The end result would be something like this

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey,[*/QUOTE]
My reply 1
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164] how do you break it up please[*/QUOTE]
my reply 2
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]and if your not willingly to tell me, [*/QUOTE]
my reply 3
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]
my reply 4



Which without any * would look like

Quote:

Another way of doing it would be to cut and paste the second part of the quote tag after the first section of text you want to seperate then write your reply select the second part and hit he quote button (it looks like a text bubble),if you do that without anything else the end result would be

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey,[*/QUOTE]
My reply 1
[*QUOTE] how do you break it up please[*/QUOTE]
my reply 2
[*QUOTE]and if your not willingly to tell me, [*/QUOTE]
my reply 3
[*QUOTE]then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]
my reply 4

Which would look like

Quote:

my reply 3
Quote:

my reply 4

To make it like the previous example (which wpuld be preferred, though not necessary ) copy the part that says who posted with the link to the post and paste it accordingly to the proper part in each first half of each quote tag. In my I would copy =minato uchiha;2118164 and paste it where the # is
[*QUOTE#] to get [*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164] (of course with the * removed)


Of course you can use any other method you like to get to the end result, but now that you know what the end rwsult looks like I think there shouldnt be any problems

And? You can thank many countries in terms of sovereignty of others, it doesn't disprove my claim and it's still pertinent to show how your claim is fickle at best, since you're cherry-picking events to prove it while disregarding others of equal or bigger importance.

Quote:
And as far as being radical, I could say that you sound like a left-wing nut job. Radical is radical.
Wut? I'm not talking about you when I say right-win nutjob, I mean the source of the claim Rome fell due to sexual depravity normally comes from them to justify anti-gay and anti-abortion positions, as if their country will fall into shambles if they aren't chaste.

Quote:
And for the evidence you're asking for, it's supported by left-leaning historians.
Okay, show them to me then.

Re: homosexuality is it just......

Personally I don't care.
If your a guy and like guys hey by all means who am I to judge you? It's your life not mine. If your a girl and love girls again by all means kudos to ya. It's nothing to trip about, they have rights just as much as everyone else. It's not a serious issue.

Yea and it's not an issue for me either but the old addage people fear what they dont understand... I think that if there is a scientific explaination of how homosexuality isn't a choice but something thats ingrained in a person .like a peanut or shellfish allergy then people could stop faulting people for "choosing" to be different and see that they are doing nothign more than being who God/Nature designed them to be.

Re: homosexuality is it just......

I was reading some neat research about homosexuality. My thought was:

Behavioral traits, unlike eye color or hair color, are very complex as they have genetic, structural/developmental (physical structure), dietary and socio-cultural causes. Something like depression can have as small of a root cause as a point mutation which codes for a now deficient enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase which plays a role in transforming tryptophan into seratonin. The same depression could be due to environmental conditions like a lack of sunlight, social exposure or... the list goes on. My point is that teasing out genetic vs. experiental/ developmental causes is really difficult to do outside of a very cruel laboratory.

I was thinking that so many things could be the cause of the brain conditions that lead to homosexuality, but if there indeed is a genetic component that plays an important role, how would it get passed on to future generations? Gays aren't motivated to procreate with a member of the opposite sex that is capable of passing the genes on. A few things could explain why, although gays ostensibly shouldn't reproduce thereby thinning their genes from the gene pool, we still see gays today.

(this is of course assuming that in most cases genetics play an important role, without which homosexuality would be highly unlikely)

1) gay people get pressured to reproduce anyways, in undesirable pairings, thereby passing the genes on.

2) Homosexuality is ultimately dependent on a variety of factors, and many gays don't even know that they are homosexual.

I found this option to be intriguing

3) much like sickle cell anemia, the genes controlling sexuality and reproductive desires somehow benefit or are just as effective when a heterogeneous mixture is expressed - that is to say, a male expressing some female traits or vica-versa may be beneficial to sexual fitness.

4) Some other more complex analysis of hormonal development, enzymes, diets etc...

Anyways, I am no authority on the subject, but I wanted to put my two cents in. What do you think?
