Isaiah 31:8 - The Assyrians will be destroyed, but not by the swords of men. The sword of God will strike them, and they will panic and flee. The strong young Assyrians will be taken away as captives.

Your post history here. Also Obama saying that what christians are going through in Iraq/Syria is not a genocide. I knew he was an opportunistic coward (remember him baiting Armenians to vote for him in 08 with the false promise of recognizing the genocide and pressing Turkey) who bends over for muslims but that was too blunt even for him.

Did Obama really promise that?

He's mad that Assyrian Atheists and gays exist and also can't grasp that I have different opinions then him so he insults me for it and tries on every post for me to argue with him.

I'm against people saying Christianity is apart of Assyrian culture... Because it really isn't...



Alright Dom, I want you calmly and rationally explain to me how Christianity is not part of Assyrian culture. I'm actually going to take whatever answer you give me seriously so put as much effort to it as possible.

Christianity is a religion, not a culture.

We adopted it just like lots of other ethnic groups....

Assyrian empire and the origins of the Assyrian empire, were they Christians?

I'm pretty sure Ashurnipal would not be happy.

That's all you have to know.

I was expecting a larger post but that's ok.

I'm going to respond to your post with this link and face

here's a small excerpt

Quote
Christian culture is a term primarily used in academia to describe the cultural practices common to Christianity. With the rapid expansion of Christianity to Europe, Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, Egypt, Ethiopia, and India and by the end of the 4th century had become the official state church of the Roman Empire.[1][2][3] Christian culture has influenced and assimilated much from the Greco-Roman Byzantine,[4] Western culture,[5] Middle Eastern,[6][7] Slavic, Latin American,[8] Caucasian, and possibly from Indian[9] and African[citation needed].

...

Eastern Christians (particularly Nestorian Christians - oh hey that's us!) contributed to the Arab Islamic Civilization during the Ummayad and the Abbasid periods by translating works of Greek philosophers to Syriac and afterwards to Arabic.[29][30][31] They also excelled in philosophy, science, theology and medicine.[32][33]

...

Christians have made a myriad contributions in a broad and diverse range of fields, including the sciences, arts, politics, literatures and business.[34][35][36][37][38][39] According to 100 Years of Nobel Prizes a review of Nobel prizes award between 1901 and 2000 reveals that (65.4%) of Nobel Prizes Laureates, have identified Christianity in its various forms as their religious preference.[40]

...

Christians (particularly Nestorian Christians) contributed to the Arab Islamic Civilization during the Ummayad and the Abbasid periods by translating works of Greek philosophers to Syriac and afterwards to Arabic.[29][31][80] During the 4th through the 7th centuries, scholarly work in the Syriac and Greek languages was either newly initiated, or carried on from the Hellenistic period.

Centers of learning and of transmission of classical wisdom included colleges such as the School of Nisibis, and later the School of Edessa, and the renowned hospital and medical academy of Jundishapur; libraries included the Library of Alexandria and the Imperial Library of Constantinople; other centers of translation and learning functioned at Merv, Salonika, Nishapur and Ctesiphon, situated just south of what later became Baghdad.[81][82]

The House of Wisdom was a library, translation institute, and academy established in Abbasid-era Baghdad, Iraq.[83][84] Nestorians played a prominent role in the formation of Arab culture,[33] with the Jundishapur school being prominent in the late Sassanid, Umayyad and early Abbasid periods.[85] Notably, eight generations of the Nestorian Bukhtishu family served as private doctors to caliphs and sultans between the 8th and 11th centuries.[86][87]

You're as an apologist to Christianity the same way ex-Muslim Cenk Uygur is to Islam. Lol.

Maybe you took it too far..Junk Uygur is just a noisy halfwit and a repulsive person. Islam is not the only crock he babbles about.

Whether it is beneficial or not, preferable or not; Christianity is certainly part of Assyrian culture. It is one of the main forces if not the strongest force in keeping Assyrians connected today. Despite the division that Christianity has caused within us by affiliation to different churches, on the whole, it is something that has been used to say we are who we are and we are not as many of those that are around us.

He gets more fueled up and pathetically apologetic when it comes to his dear Islam. That's when his loathsomeness shows.

I agree and disagree here. Yes, Christianity did help us maintain our Assyrian culture. It did unite us. But I wouldn't say that it's keeping us connected today.

No. We are Aryans. We evolved in the Zagros, alongside the blonde pure Caucasians who came from there. We eventually gave birth to Germans and the white race.

Oh wait, I confused us with Kurds.

It's keeping us extremely loyal to our own Churches, which is good, but considering there's so many, it's also extremely divisive.

Whether you like it or not though, religious endogamy is a leading factor is on our homogeneousness.

- Assyrians are just Kurdish Christians
- Assyrians are just Arab Christians
- Assyrians are extinct
- Assyrians don't exist
- We only call ourselves Assyrians because the British named us Assyrians
- Assyrians were evil
- Assyrians were the ISIS of the ancient world
- We can never make up for the brutality of our ancestors and that is why we deserve to be getting killed today
- The Anti-Christ will be Assyrian
