  • What were the factors that lead to the rise of atheism's influence in the West, during the 20th century?

    While atheism already existed in India and Greece in ancient times, and was already flourishing during the Enlightenment in Europe, I wonder what were the factors that lead to atheism becoming more influential into daily life, within the 20th century, to displace Christianity in the West? Would it be economic prosperity? Would it be increasing scientific discoveries and technological innovation? Or would it be loosening social norms? Or would it be Communist agents, as some people have claimed?

    Best answer: I would have to say Elizabeth. mary was popualar at first, and it is hard to say how she would have turned out if she had had longer as queen, but her persecution of protestants, and her marriage to philip of Spain, made her unpopular with the protestants, who were by the time she succeeded a majority in London and the south east (though catholics still made up a majority in the north and west of England). She would have been wiser to steer a more moderate course, as elizabeth did. Elizabeth was better at compromising, and getting the populace on her side, and avoiding conflict.

  • Would WWII have been lost in Europe if America didn't join?

    Movies, TV, and games always make it seem like if it wasn't for America in World War II, we'd all be speaking German right now. I can't seem to find reputable sources, plus people perceive things differently, so let's see what people respond with.

    Best answer: The USA was alarmed at Japan's invasion of China and Manchuria. America was allied with China so the USA withdrew oil exports to Japan that it was 95% dependent on. To back up it's treat America moved it's Pacific fleet from San Diego into Pearl Harbor. The Japanese were so intimidated by the act that they sank the obsolete battle ships into the mud of the Harbor.

    The Americans at that time knew the Japanese could not refuel their ships at sea or that the torpedoes could be modified to be used in the shallow water of Pearl Harbor. Some how the Japanese refueling problem was accommodated, they launched the longest distance navel attack in history altered the torpedoes with break away fins to keep them from plunging into the Pearl Harbor mud an caught the Americans flat footed in the shallow harbor not expecting any attack.

    The Japanese plan was to capture and control the Oil in the East Indies and live without the American oil imports while fortifying the captured raw material areas making them imposable for the Allies to recapture without large cost of life and material.... that plan failed some 6 months later with the loss of Japanese naval power sunk in the battle of Mid Way Island. Turning Japan's war planning into defense over offense that lasted four more years.

  • Will the United States eventually fall just like the Roman Empire?

    I was reading an article in some magazine saying that many American families are falling apart. Will this cause a SUPER chain reaction and bring down the US? Let's not forget developing nations like China and India, though not exactly considered "rich", have strong family bonds and give family great importance which contributes to the development of their country. I am sure that the US had once given family serious thought, but in recent years, perhaps because of the pride that it is the world's strongest superpower both in military and economy, families are falling apart. The Holy Roman Empire was once very civilized but soon fell apart and started the Dark Ages, a setback for Europe.
