comment What historical conditions (culture, technology, events, etc.) contributed to China's current lead in population?
I think it's envy against the rich. In Europe, due to democracy, the poor, which are larger in number, rules. Those in power tend to produce more children. Deep inside all living things have strong instinct to reproduce. The dumber (IQ wise) and poorer a person, the more likely he follow his instinct and became more successful in the genepool. Also smarter females have lower effective fertility than dumber males in, and only in western civilization (or westernized civilization)

comment Was Rommel an Anti-Semite?
Actually all morality eventually have true practical purpose. The fact that there is something in it for me does not make it immoral. In fact, immoral acts often end up in lose lose situation which is hence, stupid. In buddhism, this is blured further into kusala vs akusala. Kusala means both good and wise (literally skillful), and akusala means the opposite.

I guess it depends on what you mean "worship". Also the hebrew words are the same, elohim, which more naturally translated as gods/powers

In Sam Kok, a book I read when I was a kid, it's always ruse after ruse, tricks after tricks. Very rarely, if ever, technology plays huge role. There is Zhuge Liang crossbows that can fire 100 arrows. It may not even be real and used like what? Once....
