comment Why did the Nazis invent videotelephony?
@Nerrolken Progress/discovery/invention is always an accident, not a stunt.

comment Why did the Nazis invent videotelephony?
"Why"? Because science/technology progresses. But as @Lohoris says- second question- why it did not continue to develop- that's a more interesting question.

comment Has any culture primarily worshipped an evil deity?
yes as I said, it's debatable, like all post-colonial thought. So yes- agreed.

comment What year did the USA get involved in WWII and what were the reasons for this?
If you don't "take history" this might be a bad place to begin.

comment Has any culture primarily worshipped an evil deity?
While the question is more hard to answer now, I guess the reason is in general the human tendency is to worship goodness/virtue rather than evil. Voted retraction, because I realize my argument is social, not historical.

Is this homework? And do you watch Hollywood movies?

comment Did the militarists in Japan look to the Nazis as a model during their takeover?
Ultranationalist dictatorship? Now when did that happen in Japan?

comment Has any culture primarily worshipped an evil deity?
the thuggee idea has been re-assessed and post-colonial history says this was a construction by the British to enable them to criminalize resistance. In other words, its debatable. In any case even if they were "evil", the idea of Kali herself being evil has long been rejected- as you pointed out.

comment Has any culture primarily worshipped an evil deity?
That depends on interpretation. What has been often portrayed by colonial masters as evil has in the reassessment of history been shown otherwise. The distinguishing lines are blurry and the debates incredibly unending.

comment Why does Latin American history have such a low profile?
You are possibly asking about a gap- a specific period. You might like to refine your question to ask about that period. "Low profile" cannot be defined unambiguously.

comment What are all the countries that voted by supporting, opposing and neutral for LTTE?
The closest they went was United Nations Security Council resolution adopted in September 2001, which called for economic sanctions against groups involved in terrorism. But no comprehensive list of organisations was compiled. Individually, govts. did impose bans. See this.

comment What was the average height in Classical Greece?
@T.E.D. that's close to current trends in India. Although other conclusions such as milk consumption cannot have a bearing on the US population.

comment What was the average height in Classical Greece?
+1. But I wonder why the graph has separate vertical scales for male and female. That makes gender based comparison meaningless.
