comment Why were people from the Asian Steppes able to militarily dominate Europeans on a repeated basis?
I highly doubt that there was a period when Germanic peoples lived in Asia. The proto-Germanic Urheimat was in Scandinavia and modern-day Denmark. upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d0/…

comment Is there any evidence that the Catholic Church slowed innovation during the Middle Ages?
@ihtkwot of course it was not a Church's innovation. The Church itself originates as a corporation under Empire's corporate law.

comment Did Heisenberg undermine the German atomic bomb by deliberately hiding his expertise from the Nazis?
What do you mean that he wanted to be ethical? The fact that he did not order to torture Bohr does not mean he was ethical. The reasons may be that he felt Bohr as a friend or guru, because torturing Bohr would make international resonance, because he was unsure that Bohr had the needed info, because he did not want gestapo to intervene and so on. Heisenberg definitely wanted a nuclear bomb, was it ethical or not. -1

comment What is the evidence for North Korean famine of 1990s?
@Sardathrion no, my question is what the evidence for the famines besides the claims by interested politicians (US senators) and defectors (who are obviously interested). That is I am looking for verifiable evidence.

comment What is the evidence for North Korean famine of 1990s?
@Mark C. Wallace do you mean the US congressmen are a reliable and objective historical source? What about N Korea People's assembly members? Well my question was created so to find out whether there any evidence beyond the claims by selected politicians.
