comment Were early accounts of ancient child prostitution accurate?
If those writings have been destroyed, how can we know this is what happened? Did enough of them survive?

comment Has a foreign power ever sought to compel another country to abide by international law by means of that country's internal judiciary?
@PieterGeerkens nice move, but if you don't limit yourself to the title and consider the opening sentence, you get "two countries which have a treaty or convention between them. One country thinks the other has infringed upon it", which definitely does not apply to this answer.

comment Which undeciphered writing system has the largest corpus of text?
The last point is very good: if it's still undeciphrad, it's not very likely staring intensely at the already known scripts will yield results...

comment What was Muhammad's religion before becoming a Muslim prophet?
@BattleofKarbala werther it is or not, I reiterate, he specifically asked for non-"islamic tradition" sources, so this does not answer the question.

comment Tracking down fifteenth century French and Italian coats of arms
Wouldn't every nobleman have his personal coat of arms, of course strongly related to the one of his family?

comment Why are some Americans more religious than European counterparts?
@T.E.D. well, it doesn't matter much if a state doesn't have an official religion, if it lacks many other basic liberties.

comment Looking for historical names of Sea's mountains rivers
@MarkC.Wallace history of geographical names cannot be out of scope. (this question is because it's too broad and other reasons, of course)

comment How many lives were saved by the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs?
We might want to consider, however highly speculative, that the mere fact of dropping those bombs, might have deterred from dropping other bombs later during the cold war. I.e. if those bombs weren't dropped, sooner or later a bomb would have been dropped anyway.

comment How were diplomats and their staff's treated when World War II was declared?
The notion of diplomats endangered by the outbreak of war is just silly: if they were, diplomats wouldn't exist in the first place.

comment What factors enabled Europe to conquer almost the whole world?
"* - Yes, the Chinese actually had an earlier printing press. It wasn't an important invention in China though. Why is the interesting question" I'm not sure if that is an interesting question: AFAIK it wasn't a movable type printing press, and that's why it wasn't really successful.
