comment Have Germany and Poland ever signed a peace treaty after WWII?
@Voitcus well possibly Poland as an Eastern block country did not recognize the FRG as a successor to Nazi Germany.

comment What is the earliest reference to “space aliens”?
@coderworks " The reason is, I wanted to see if there was a point when humans could conceive of other beings that maybe had other abilities than humans themselves but did not need to be revered." - well in that case I would say that unknown creatures from far countries were imagined more often.

So it is possible. Was it used ever historically for travel/transportation/war?

@Matthew Read common people do not speak English, English is lingua franca for those who want international communication or build a carrier.

comment Today, how accurate and balanced is Paul Johnson's book *History of the Jews*?
"Jewish people believed so much that they were a special people, protected by God, that they evolved into one and survived" - from today's perpective it is a completely wrong claim. Ethnic Jews were not any more devoted than any other peoples. But those who converted were not called "Jews" any more. So the word "Jews" became reserved for the most devoted group out of all ethnic Jews.

comment Why did the USSR preserve the national republics?
@Felix Goldberg possibly he asks about drawing the borders: whether they should be along the ethnic lines.
