Charles Darwin (1809-1882)


At some future time after Darwin's death, not very distant as measured by centuries, "the civilized races of man" tried to exterminate each other two times to find out who was the most civilized. Seemingly, at some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, they will probably exterminate all the races by making the earth uninhabitable. Bravo the civilized races of man, congratulations on your achievement! Applause

Topic: Vasco da Gama Sets Sail on First Direct European Voyage to India (1497)
Posted: Friday, July 8, 2016 3:33:09 PM
Quote:
On his second voyage, Vasco da Gama inflicted acts of cruelty upon competing traders and local inhabitants, which sealed his notoriety in India. During his second voyage to Calicut, da Gama intercepted a ship of Muslim pilgrims at Madayi travelling from Calicut to Mecca. Described in detail by eyewitness Thomé Lopes and chronicler Gaspar Correia as one that is unequalled in cold-blooded cruelty, da Gama looted the ship with over 400 pilgrims on board including 50 women, locked in the passengers, the owner and an ambassador from Egypt and burnt them to death. They offered their wealth which 'could ransom all the Christian slaves in the Kingdom of Fez and much more' but were not spared. Da Gama looked on through the porthole and saw the women bringing up their gold and jewels and holding up their babies to beg for mercy.'

So both God and the Devil are in the details. The eternal fight between them must be taking place in the details.
