"Say hi, Blake. Hello. And Blake, we have we have a lot of questions here, but I thought it was just a perfect question to have you join. When a young lady says, how often do you think about the Roman Empire? Now, so, Blake, fill our audience in on this Internet phenomenon. OK, so we talked about this on Thought Crime, which if you guys don't watch Thought Crime on Rumble, definitely check it out every Thursday at 8 p.m. Eastern. And download the podcast. We talked about this last week. This went viral on Twitter X, I guess we call it now. I can't get over that. Instagram, all the other places where some woman basically discovered, she's like, you know, I asked my husband, like, how often he thinks about the Roman Empire? And he replied like every week or so. You know, this blew her mind. You know, she probably hasn't thought about the Roman Empire ever. And so she's like, ladies, is this true? Like, are men thinking about this all of the time? And the answer is yes. We are all thinking about it all the time. Like multiple times a day all the time. Yeah, yeah. I was I could maybe miss a day here or there. And then they made this a topic. Now it's just weird. I can't escape the Roman Empire. Well, so first, you know more about Roman Empire than like the Roman Empire than like professional historians, which I think we should riffle. Can you name all the emperors in order? All of them in order. I could probably get pretty far. So like Augustus, Octavian. Octavian is Augustus. So then Tiberius. Augustus, Tiberius. And then I lose it. Then like Caligula. Caligula is next. Oh, is that right? Okay, all right. Tiberius, Caligula. And then Nero is somewhere in the next three or four, right? Claudius, Nero. Oh, so I wasn't too far off. Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus, Domitian, Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus, Pius, Marcus Aurelius, also with the last of the good emperors, Commodus. Commodus. See, I got that one. And then he gets choked out by a wrestler in the bath. Not making that up. And so then it is- Otherwise known as Joaquin Phoenix, by the way, for those of you keeping score at home. And then we get Pertinax. That's an obscure one. Pertinax. At this point, it was after Pax Romana. Yeah, this is where it's starting to break down. And so then we have Pertinax. Then we have Didius Julianus. Just so you guys know, he's not reading a screen. No, no, no. I'll turn the computer down there. Didius Julianus. Then Septimius Severus. And then Geda Caracalla, our brothers. Caracalla kills his brother, Geda. I don't know if I'm pronouncing that right. I don't actually read Latin. I just have to read translations like a normie. Geda Caracalla. And then, OK, now it starts to get tough. And then I think it's Elagabalus. No, we have Macrinus. Then Elagabalus. Then Severus Alexander. He gets murdered by his soldiers. And then things get really kooky. And if you read the list, it's like it's all inconsistent. We have guys with weird names like Pupianus. That's a dumb name. And then like Gordian 1, 2, and 3. Philip the Arab. I can't. Now this is where the order breaks down for a while. It gets really. So the females are stunned that we think about the Roman Empire so much. Why do men think so much about it? By the way, incredibly impressive, Blake. And it's very impressive. Maybe people disagree. They're like, this is a sad person. No, I think it's amazing. I can name like five. It's more than most Americans. But I mean, why do men think so much about the Roman Empire? Well, so it's a lot of things. Like men, I mean, we love it. Like it is like the apex of everything that men aspire to build. It was an institution that was the bedrock of civilization for 1,000 years. It's what we still aspire to today, what still gives shape to our society today. Like what is the most common religion in Western civilization? It's Christianity. Who adopted Christianity? The Roman Empire. What formed as our government? I mean, a republic. That's from Res Publica for 400 years, right? Res Publica. That is a Latin Roman term. And it's, you know, what architectural style are we imitating? We're imitating Greco-Roman architecture. If you go to DC, it's basically Little Rome. Yeah, like what drove the Enlightenment? A huge proportion of it is essentially aspiring to what these ancient Romans and ancient Greeks wrote about and did. The Renaissance was a rediscovery. The Renaissance, the rebirth, was the rediscovery of ancient Greek and Roman learning. And then the Enlightenment was sort of a continuation of that. All of these guys would say, you know, like James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, all of these guys would read these ancient Roman political thinkers. Cicero, for example. One-year Roman council had a huge impact on the founders. Exactly, exactly. And so it's very much the model they would look towards both for good and bad things. It is the cultural template that we operate off of. You know, you could almost say like we're in Judeo-Christian Roman civilization, if you wanted to. Yeah, and it's forgetting the male-female part of it, because we've been through that macro, micro. Men are more focused on history and philosophy. Women more focused on relationships and feelings, poetry, stuff like that. And that's not a sexist thing, it's just a fact. But so what I find interesting, though, is that when people say Rome is the goal, what does that mean? By people, you mean when Jack tells us that Rome is the goal. Oh, so it is obviously men do love the idea of building... A little bit like that, you know, we love to build things that endure. And, you know, we love to imagine, like, what would the United States, you know, we feel like the United States is in decline. But and the Roman Empire declined and fell, but it lasted a very long time. That's the amazing thing. Four hundred and seventy-seven years, right? It had a run of 500, 600 years where it was the most powerful, important thing. People, by the end of it, you know, they couldn't imagine a world without Rome. Like, it had never existed. No one could imagine a history of what it was like before Rome was a thing. That's how much it shaped everything. And for thousands of years afterwards, that's what they wanted. You know, we'd have these pale imitations. In the Middle Ages, they had the Holy Roman Empire, which, you know, as Voltaire wrote, was like, not holy, not Roman, not an empire. It actually was all three of those things. But that's another matter. And, you know, because they were just, to a Middle Ages person, they were like, this is Rome restored. We are the Roman Emperor. And they're like bad, pale understanding of it. And, you know, even when they're found in the United States, a lot of them would view this as like, oh, this is our, you know, our restoration of the ancient, like, Republican principles of Rome. Like, that's always the goal, is to create a state and society that can be as, you know, robust and enduring as what happened 2,000 years ago. And it's all really cool. Like, they fight all these wars, and there's all these inspirational, like, moral fables that you get from Rome, which we mostly get because all of their history gets burned up, and we have like one book left, and it's like Roman propaganda. And meditation. Exactly. And some stuff like that. But like, you know, they fight this war against Hannibal. And there's a battle where the Romans lose the Battle of Cannae, where 60,000 Romans die in one day, which would be like, imagine if we fought a war with, you know, Britain or Germany, and, you know, 2 million US troops get killed in one day with the president and a third of Congress in like North Carolina, and he's like marching on Washington. And like, that is what happens to Rome. And like, they don't make peace. And according to the histories, they don't even think about making peace. Like, it doesn't even enter their mind. And they just, they just tank, you know, right in the face. Like, they're a boxer who does nothing, get punched, get punched in the face, and they keep going. And that just is the sort of thing that if you're a man, you're like, wow, those guys are awesome. Not to mention the architectural achievements. Aqueducts, roads, the dome, right? The arch and the dome also invented it. Everyone wants to imitate this. So there is a... It is the standard still of architecture worldwide. The famous thing is the Duomo in Florence, Brunelleschi's dome. It is like, it was the first dome they made in 1500 years that was bigger than the dome of the Pantheon. And like, when the Ottoman, when the Muslims take over Istanbul, like their big thing is we want to be able to build a dome that is as large as, you know, the one in Aja Sofia, which had been built a thousand years before them. And all of these achievements, it's like, how many buildings do you know from a thousand years ago? Not really as many as we have from Rome 2000 years ago. I want to stay on this because I think it's super interesting. There are some misconceptions about the fall of Rome that you correct sometimes. Yeah, there's a few of them. And I also want to talk about how did they get so great, so excellent? Such an outlier, because I think that's interesting. Was it the form of government? Some people say it was the nutrition. Have you ever heard that theory that they were able to have such reliable agrarian base in a time when food was largely scarce? I don't know if that's true or not. Blake Neff is with us as we do our Ask Me Anything episode. How often do you think about the Roman Empire? I think about it. I have a bust of Marcus Aurelius in my office.
"commodus" Discussed on What Bitcoin Did
"Print a couple of trillion, buy the Bitcoin, wait, erase the debt. Yeah. It's such an obvious play. Yeah, and also you can do what Luke Grohmann talks about. And if you're America, you can leapfrog China and Russia, which have been stacking gold. And it's like, whoops, we just made your fucking gold worthless, right? This is one of the myths that I think Bitcoiners often, we get hand-wavy about because hyper-Bitcoinization is like an apocalypse. You know what I mean? Where suddenly all of the bad people go to hell and all the good people go to heaven. You know what I mean? It's Exodus, right? And so it's just like, hyper-Bitcoinization is your own beautiful world of like wherever you wanna go and whatever you wanna do, right? But the truth is, this is a hard truth to hear, but the truth is that central banks are going to buy Bitcoin in tremendous quantities. And then they're going to issue CBDCs against Bitcoin. There's nothing that is intrinsic to Bitcoin that prevents a sovereign from issuing a currency against Bitcoin. And then what they're gonna do is they're gonna break the peg and then they're gonna go full fiat again. And that's the cycle, that's the doom loop that humanity is stuck in. It's been the same cycle on the gold standard. Constantly the gold was re-accumulated, the gold was stolen, re-accumulated, like every war in Europe's history was either God, glory or gold or some combination of all three. You collected the gold, right? You used it to beautify your society. Then after a while you got lazy, your insolent kids came up after you and they started clipping the gold, mixing it with different metals. You know what I mean? And then the whole society collapsed under loose fiscal policy. And that's what always happens. Have you ever heard the quote by Teitler? Gone. Okay, I gotta pull it up because it's a long quote. John Danny to put up on the screen. Yeah, yeah. Danny, can you pull up, just type in largesse from the public treasury Teitler and the quote will come up. This is a quote by, I believe Teitler was a Scottish academic from the late 1700s. And this quote is about basically, you know, how cycles, okay, here it is. A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to apathy, from apathy to dependence, and from dependence back into bondage. So we're in apathy to dependence. See, this is the thing for me. In fiat, we're moving from apathy to dependence. In Bitcoin, I am moving from spiritual faith to great courage, and so are you guys. I think we're a stage ahead. I think we're moving, well, it depends where you are. I think we're moving from courage to liberty. I think we're spiritual faith to great courage. Courage to liberty will come when there's a direct challenge from the government about your Bitcoin. Fair. That's a fucking amazing quote. Oh, dude, I think about this quote. Is that from a book? Yeah, I believe so. I think about this quote all the time. This quote is- That's incredible. This quote is, you know, hard times make strong men stronger. It's that, it's the meme. Yeah. You think about it though, you have to have spiritual, like think about the American Revolution, okay? The American founding fathers were rich aristocrats, okay? Who were just on principle ticked off that they had to pay taxes to King George. Yeah, 2%. On fucking principle. And because of the principle of their spiritual faith, their belief in God and the belief that they would win, they gambled with their fucking lives in order to throw off the boot that was on their neck. 2% T tax, that's all it was. And because they won, we now make statues of them and name things after them. But you know, there's a version of history where those guys are fucking hanged, right? In fact, 99 times out of 100, that version of history plays out. But this one time- And you would never have existed. Exactly, there'd be no American huddle. I'd be British huddle, Bedford huddle. There is a British huddle. Yeah, there is. But yeah, I mean, you know, without the courage, the spiritual faith that leads to the courage, you're not going to do the thing you need to do. You're not gonna answer the call. It was what Breedlove said to me. In terms of voting yourself money. Voting yourself money. It's voting yourself money. Yeah. By the way, one of the things I'm most worried about in American politics is that we're moving from democracy to dictatorship. And it's not Donald Trump, but it's both sides in a race to put Hitler in office. That's how I see it and I'm terrified of it. Well, it's that very clear point when you see it, it's like you may be voting for one side, but you're voting for the same thing. Even Elon Musk was tweeting things about like Roman dictators, like saying we need to sell this kind of stuff. I mean, there's a feeling out there that we need a dictator in America to just right the ship because democracy is chaos. And when you have democracy plus free speech, it's chaos plus napalm plus gasoline. It's like, it gets really chaotic to be an American and be like in the mix, right? Well, that's why you will see some people argue back for monarchies, like Safer Dean argues that monarchies are better or you'll see some people out there defending places like Saudi Arabia say, well, look, there's no crime, the streets are clean, everyone's happy, but it's a dictatorship. Well, monarchy is the best system when it works. When it works, monarchy is fucking great. I mean, who wouldn't wanna live under Marcus Aurelius, right? Like I would wanna live under Marcus Aurelius. The problem is you get that for about 40 years and then you have Marcus Aurelius' shitbag son, Commodus, and then you have to live under that asshole. You know what I mean? That's the problem with monarchy. I always think of the young king in Game of Thrones. Yes. Yeah, exactly. Have you seen that? Yeah, yeah. What's his name? Joffrey. Joffrey. Joffrey. What a cunt, right? Yeah. Well, great character though. Oh, amazing. And what a kid to play. And that is what like unearned privilege gets you. And that's why monarchy, monarchy by via, you know, you're using blood to pick, I forget the name, but you know, using lineage to pick the monarch. Like, I mean, look at your monarchs. They all look like they're inbred. Listen, we have, look. Prince William has the worst genetics I've ever seen. We had a great queen who was, yeah. She, I mean, what, 90 years? She was, the fucking photos are ridiculous. What did she do? She sat there and was an old lady. No, it's more than that. She, you know, she was unimpeachable. Like, name one thing she did bad, apart from, I think the only thing she, obviously she stood by and not son. Yeah. But apart from that. Andrew. Yeah, like she doesn't have anything. She doesn't have anything on her record. Like, look at the rest of them. She has nothing bad on her record. She was some, like. I will say this about her. I mean, I've learned everything I know about her from watching The Crown, but I will say this, that, you know, she seemed very civically minded and a person of great faith. And those are good qualities you want in a leader. Now, she's not actually a leader. She's just a figurehead. Yeah, she's a. Or she was. Yeah, she's someone to look to, you know, somebody that people look to when times are tough. Yeah. What's she gonna say? How is she gonna calm the nation? I think it was probably more important under her father, King George. Yeah, I think he had a much more important role. And, you know, during her reign, she lost power. And that's fine. Look at George's brother, who, you know, literally was making pacts with the Nazis to put him back in power. What a piece of shit that guy was, right? Yeah. That was so bad. You guys had to pretend like it didn't happen. But it did. It didn't happen.

Tens of thousands of exhausted people are heading home to the world's newest country South Sudan from a Civil War in neighboring Sudan. That's creating a bottleneck near the dusty border. The international community and government are scurrying to help worried about a prolonged conflict fighting between Sudan's military and a rival militia killed at least 863 civilians before a 7 day ceasefire began Monday night. Many in South Sudan are concerned about what could happen if the fighting next door continues, but the most immediate concern is the tens of thousands of South Sudanese returning with no idea how they'll get to their towns and villages, many unable to afford that trip, aid groups and the government are stretched for resources to help.

"And wind come on news. Well, there will be a game 7 in the kraken avalanche series tomorrow in Denver. Vargas was at climate play dorena last night with a lot of excited fans. The kraken have been playing amazingly. Kind of all series long. They're playing the defending Stanley Cup champions as a wild card they can close them out. Nothing's bigger than that in my mind. With the kraken just in their second season as an NHL team fans tell me they're proud to be wearing their colors. Always, yeah I'll wear this Jersey year round. You really get behind him and they are fighting that hard. Well, fans tell me that it's not over yet and they believe that the kraken will continue to fight as they go into game 7 and again they remain optimistic that they will go into round two of the playoffs.

"And the camera Astor's camera definitely pays attention to that where these shots looking at him from below looking up at him or from behind his broad back fills the whole frame, but it's not in a powerful sense, which you get from that film, I think, here you get sort of lethargic and immobility came to mind, right? Just like he's stuck in his life, his body seems physically stuck as well. Yeah, I think that's all fair. And I think it's a performance that literally asks him to suffer a lot, and it also requires him to do a lot of reacting. Think about how much of this film for sure is him responding to those assaults and responding with pain, but also him just looking at people. Phoenix is one of our best actors when it comes to having to just react and have a horrified response to something. Think about how many times even in the scene you picked from inherent vice, there's a great moment of that where Josh Brolin starts inexplicably eating right the dope leaves, right? And we see his eyes get big and that big facial reaction where he almost doesn't know what he's experiencing. Is this real? Is this really happening in this moment? That reaction shot from inherent vice is this movie for three hours. He's in various degrees of stricken Ness. And it's just watching the eyes and it makes that interesting. He does, he does make it interesting. I would say he also makes it funny. You know, there's a recurring thing in asters films of people howling and despair and their mouths just open wide in this really uncomfortable way. There is a moment later in the film where Bo is hobbling away from some other trauma. I won't say what. But his neck is like contorted to the side and his mouth is open as if he's howling, like an aster Howell, but you don't hear anything. It's the most, it's the most disturbing yet hilarious expression. It's almost like he's achieving rigor mortis. As he's walking. And I do think that Phoenix is playing this largely as a comic performance without making fun of bow. And I don't think the movie is making fun of Beau or laughing at him at all. It's too, it's too wired closely to his own head to do that. Yeah. Look, I just can't get that worked up about a movie that is this knowingly absurd. The entire story, what there is of a story. Is based around two jokes about the length of mother will go to maintain control over her son. One related to his character, something he believes defines him as a person and one that is about the journey he's on where he's going and why he's trying to get there. And if you really think about them for a second, you realize that they could be punchlines in a joke. If someone was just using them as punchlines to talk about their domineering mother. Astor building an entire film around them, a three hour movie around these two jokes. So I may not love it, but I also, I can't be mad at it, Josh. I can't be. All right, we'll take what we can get. Those afraid is currently in theaters. If you see it and agree or disagree with us, you can email us feedback of film spotting .NET. Let's get back to our top 5 Joaquin Phoenix characters. I did consider Bo for this list. I thought he was that good, Josh, but didn't quite make the cut we're down to our final two favorites. Real quick. You want to remind folks what you had at 5, four and three? Yeah, number 5 was an early performance. Jimmy Emmett in to die for. Number four was Meryl Hess in signs and number three was Larry Doc sportello from inherent vice. And number 5, I had Commodus from Gladiator. Number four, Leonard creditor from two lovers the James grey film and Joe was my number three from Lynn Ramsay's you were never really here. We do have two more, a reminder. We set her and Theodore aside, although we both love those performances, we're going to talk about that movie coming up soon in some bonus content for film spotting family members. What do you have at number two? This might be where you want to go get some more popcorn and something to drink, maybe look for a lid and elusive lid because it's Arthur fleck in Joker. I do think that Phoenix has a talent above all for miserable. And to me, this is one of his most fascinating ones, Arthur fleck. The movie itself, we don't need to relitigate it. I know I'm one of the few people who take it seriously. I'll say I still feel okay about that a couple of years on, I think we've only seen more disgruntled individuals lashing out at society. That hasn't lightened up in recent years. So I think this movie resonates in that way. And I also think that is what connects with Phoenix's performance. Arthur fleck is both a symptom and a symbol of societal breakdown. In Joker, and that is something that Phoenix communicates through a performance of operatic physicality. So yeah, I like the movie, there's a lot there, but for me, it's Phoenix, who is the centrifugal force. And I am mesmerized by his carefully choreographed but seemingly chaotic clumsiness in this movie. That's also what makes this a somewhat funny performance. I think of him running down the streets or hallways, his limbs, all askew. He's not, but he might as well be wearing clown shoes. That's how he runs. I think about him slipping and fumbling with a gun on the subway in that sequence where he's trying to defend himself from his attackers. And then, yeah, the dance on those

You know, during the break I was getting packed to head to France and then I realized my passport hasn't renewed yet because it takes them like three years to renew your passport these days. So I can't go. So I have to stay here. I'm going to stay here for a while, even though France, France has a much better deal. We did the math during the break and it's like, wow, that's a lot more than social security is going to pay. Yeah, if I want to retire at 62, couple polls from France, one poll shows that the French are overwhelmingly opposed to retiring later. You almost said you almost said that. But here's the other one that I find fascinating. The other survey they did of people working. Three quarters of French workers have consistently expressed satisfaction with their work repeatedly in surveys over the past 20 years. That said, as many would like to retire as early as possible. I love my job. Okay, wait, I get it now. I didn't know they paid them 75% of their salary. So if I give you 75% of the sour, you'll leave, and I can do the show myself. Yes Okay. Yes. I'll get my lawyer on Monday. No, you do that for the rest of my life. I will sign your life on the bottom, dotted line thing. This will be like the French retirement system.

"I said despite the clear benefits that could have come from it but he chooses the four and we talked a little bit about why that might have been but what is its legacy today. So i think it has much of a legacy in christianity. Clearly we can see him like this gospels today we we tried how good long run a few hundred years of being. But as i mentioned it's federalized by some that its biggest legacy was left on his lomb as opposed to christianity with the koran being a single Story like the digest is. That could possibly be its biggest legacy but want to shore about us. Just free. But i think like i think i phone has been left in somewhere. Most people most people have a singular idea of jesus's life in their mind and that's just rehearing. It tore in school. Pull menu both come from countries with a mainly christian and and you get told the stuff in school and do just at school you're taught just. This is how jesus did not say much until you get to higher level that there are gospels. Unless you go to church yourself. I think the concept of there being a singular narrative for christianity is somewhat in our minds remote. Most of us most don't have conflicting ideas of the life of christian constantly in our brain. We just think of one errative ville to tease a term. we all have built our own personal head cannon. Yes exactly as we will have a person who died road. I suppose i suppose we do. That's an interesting way of thinking about it. As far as all of this goes. Do you know how tation met. His fate is believed to dies one hundred eighty ad so he died quite bit not too shortly after his writings. How does this all sit in terms of historical significance. Now now. we're getting more and more of the picture of how this new testament came forward. What are some of your takeaways at the various striving towards something. That's definitive in regards to a theologically definitive. Work that is indefinitely is not a streamlined process. Seems to have a lot of different influences in terms of what we finally understand today. Where does this fit in all of that for you. i think. What so interesting about this. And to compare it with moss yon and his his new testament of salts from a few episodes back. I think it was great about. This is understanding. Things don't happen the first time. Round era mistakes is the craft were say missteps or different steps. We can all just presume. Christianity is what it is an always has been and when we look at stuff like -tations data are on and martians. Attempted first attempt to new testament. We realized no that wasn't it hasn't always been this way. There were alternate said. I don't know if mistakes is the right word or just different approaches. That didn't survive. That led to what christianity is to this day. It wasn't just this ready made sort of religion good to go from the get go to missteps. It went in way directions before being canonized as you mentioned into what it is now. Yeah it's not one of those things where jesus dies ended appears ex nihilo right. Yeah that so the that that's interesting and of course so many other what we now know today as definitive religious texts a similar experience. You know the the what we consider the tanakh the old testament had many many different influences over an extended period of time in its creation. You can go back into genesis and you could say oh they got this part from here and that part from there until this is not unfamiliar and for me at least whether it be through historical perspective or just as paul being paul.

"Put in it so carrio so yeah that was definitely crime. There's some good stuff out there. But so i find interesting that he has such an interest in continuity and that's also has a definitive biblical context and implications because there are definitely times in the bible. Where when you read it and this is true for a lot of people they they they identify contradiction and they don't like it and it creates problems and so i find that really fascinating. The other thing that's interesting is the fact that tation ended up getting dubbed a heretic. And maybe this is just my evaluation of it and certainly not. Everybody is deemed a heretic for the same reason but it seems like most of the people that make the biggest splash tend to end up getting called a hair. Yeah it does seem like that. That's the name of the more not once you really try and shake the ground. I guess you really try and get things. Change the ones who are considered like crazy. And that's something we still to this day. That the amount of like you can read so much stuff about people really changed a pioneers in things and i i called like this is stupid. What are you trying to do. And then they turned out to be the victors. It's always the case but yeah right a lot of people who try and go against the flow. Yeah or add something to it or whatever. The case may not. Everybody is a heretic for the same reason as we will know pretty well at this point if you listen to the episode marsin was also dubbed a heretic. But you know marciano was also a dick. Yeah yeah but. I don't get that same. That necessarily that same fervor that same at least as you presented it same aura from tunisia. The seems like somebody who is very thoughtfully trying to put together something that really flow that you can really latch onto. And it's an interesting idea. Because he put all the four gospels in their correct. Yes yeah but. Oc chopped up bits duplicates in contradiction and then turned it into a single compilation I think that's really interesting. Personally though i do totally understand why this would rankle people and we were talking about this when we were talking about the in the episode who wrote the gospels. Why did they make four of them. Why didn't they make just one obviously little further down the road. We have the koran. That's just the one pure simplicity. That would seem like the thing to do. But christianity takes a very different route and all these four gospels are very different and so i have to imagine that if you are a christian of this period of time assuming you have access to all four of these that we now know is the canonized new testament version. I would imagine they feel..

"Get rid of them as only one at this is all about consistency and the digest. One ended up. Being about three quarters of the size of all four gospels put together so samoa but definitely not awful like much more than the grand scheme of things. I read that it included all fifty six verses of the four gospels. It wasn't he didn't hack it it too much. Only fifty six verses of all four gospels didn't make the cub but it was definitely a convenient package for sure like people really took it up and died as ron. To begin with was a huge success it actually became something of the defacto gospel to read especially in the syrian church. I read it lasts until about the fifth century in the syrian church syrian christian church until about the fifth century. The doctrine was that goto holy books and other branches of the church used it to including the likes of catholicism. Us adjudicate christians and even missionaries. They would go with the diet. Iran and sent arrhenius. Who was a key figure in christianity. He actually declared the die on as the main authority on. Christianity is like this is the go-to burke this is this is what we obey now and so for some time. It was a hugely successful version of the bible. Unlike mason's by twitter earlier this one really did prosper. For some time though it wasn't perfect and some stuff about the tation detection actually came to light out added some material to it yet extra scenarios to it like he said that. A beam of light sean. From the river jordan as jesus was baptized and adding to the gospels are like this is a huge not the sexist sacred mashing. Someone adding extra details to the bible now. It'd be shocking. We don't we obey those words because that's how they're written. It was a huge notes at the gospel and it found and it was revealed. Tation was doing and it wasn't even big ways just just little embellishment hair in the so by the fifth century is started to fall out fashion which church leaders an that tation himself. Wasn't that beloved of a person that athletes to get rid of end tation was of course dubbed a heretic for his actions adding to the church adding to the gospels putting his own imprint in them and this is when we set out of the historic fact into my historic ideas. And we want to ask why. Why didn't this loss so well paul. I'm sure you have a reason for on. This is well. Why didn't the dieter on stick about.

"Just add that he drunk water instead of wine. This is as rebellious and they're alien concepts to roman society no wanting to drink wine but drinking water instead. It's just something. I found really enjoy this guy and this tation was disliked by many but didn't stop him from doing the most famous thing his name for the thing. He is primarily the only thing his food friday history and that was compiling the four gospels into one book. As i said he didn't like the room religion he's follow. You went to christianity. And before never crafted this was detroit. S are on might be a question is as she comes from. Greek that name and a means hominy of four. And as mentioned it simply the four gospels of matthew mark john luke compiled into one read to be published around one hundred and seventy ad. And why we're talking about it now. Though of seen other sources point to actually being earlier being to about one hundred and fifty eighty but eve wait impact lasted into this decade. And beyond. so it's good to talk about it. Now why did he choose. These four gospels. That's a really good question pool and it's one identify nancy to in my research. Those of reading. Rereading my notes just come. that's on tuesdays ones. I imagine towards this time in christianity. These four reportedly becoming the top billing. There are many other gospels out As we mentioned with mason he kind of made his gospel by this time in history. It was diesel for that. Were being chosen as the main ones the ones to recite from the ones in circulating which will come back to the moment and there were few fairies as to why we think tation compiled to focus was into one. It's this is an interesting split. Tation studied from people who never actually read the gospel and only heard out loud gospels out to say only heard these gospels out loud and you can imagine imagine hearing for different retailing's of the same story in different ways there being a written source for that you can be confused like i heard him say that wants time. I heard him say like that way. But there's no written proof of this and that that's bounced confused people. So naturally it would actually people have these sort of four different ways compiled into one basic story in their mind. they're also early compilations of the gospels. The free synoptic gospels matthew mark luke. What should he compiled in greek in years previous it. This wasn't new territory. Tation was following hair. Those for the main reason tation compiled the dieter on was to create a click consistent narrative early christians to understand more easily. It can get confusing but even today you can get confusing. Why therefore the versions of this story in the bible and tation for those ones wanted one narrative that we can all enjoy and understand and as mentioned. These focus was circulated across churches in the penalty nor the collection so one part of christianity. You have leaked another part. My knee have mark on my have. Just matthew and john gets confusing and the diet testosterone brought these old together and how was it compiled. You might be asking yourself. And for the words of the gospel and he made show the key elements stayed in the he she removes duplicates. He only wanted to keep one of each story to keep an active clear concise so a great example of this is the feeding of the five thousand. That's mentioned in a couple of the gospel. So i didn't know which one he kept exactly. But he got rid of all the other ones. Jesus only feeds the five thousand one time during the detests walkers is meant to be a stream approach to him and he also was never clean he di. He removed the elements of the gospel.

"And in. The case of gladiatorial games has very kind of bizarre relationship when it comes to gladiators because gladiators are effectively the bottom rung of society and yet in their time at various heights as individual gladiators. There are also revered their celebrated. But they'll never be able regardless of that to really rise above their station in the case of the game says we'll just a game gladiatorial games. Marcus earliest didn't have the same fascination but his son did and in the case of his son it. You're kind of in a strange position here. Because if he competes and whatever means he competes in. He competed a lot. To what extent can we really trust the outcome because as a gladiator despite the fact that they're supposed to not fear death going to go and try to take his head off. I'd have a little trouble believing that. So he is in fact actually a very good sportsmen. That's that's mentioned. He's a very good sportsmen and he's quite adept at these things.
