Oh So Terrible Many More Ruhe/Pannobhasa Videos

     Well, it’s time again for the most recent onslaught of Bitchute and YouTube videos, most of them costarring Herr Brian Ruhe. As usual, there’s the unusual assortment of talks on Buddhism, politics, general philosophy, literature, ancient history, and the JQ. It’s all pretty much self explanatory, so I’ll stop explaining. Enjoy.

3 February 2020

Did Jesus of Nazareth really exist? I say he very probably did, even if all the stories about him aren’t true. Brian, conspiracy theorist extraordinaire, thinks Jesus was a made-up propaganda conspiracy of the Roman government to weaken Judaism. With emphasis on the critical technique of using embarrassing or awkward passages as evidence of historical truth. (39:05)

Bitchute: https://www.bitchute.com/video/4zHBAE6q7tTG/

On Indo-Aryans and Indo-Greeks. With special thanks to Diane for going to all the trouble to edit this. My two main “regrets” with regard to this are that I confused the Mauryan and Gupta Empires throughout most of the talk, and that the Internet connection sucked so bad. (59:44)
