"Diocletian took over in two eighty, four ad Diocletian pretty quickly realized that there is too much strengthen the empire for all of it to be in control. Sorry. In control of one person and that things do you stabilize too much when that one person was inevitably murdered. So he brought in three Co emperors giving each wanted them control of one corner the empire. So they can focus on putting out fires as they came up in their individual regions. Constantine is also well known for being a major persecutor of Christians. After about twenty years in three zero, five Diocletian retired making him the first Roman emperor to not die in office. Three Hundred Years. Wait a second. This week we're we are now like a hundred, three, hundred, thirty ish years into it and they have all died at. Really. High mortality rate. WanNa be an emperor. You're just bound to get murdered in a terrible way. I mean I. Guess You're right. She reluctantly issue got to die of natural causes not that was your retirement package your gold as Harris Shirt. And natural death. So, he moved to a palace he had built in Split in modern Croatia where he would grow cabbages and watch everything he had built go to hell in a handbasket before dying possibly by suicide in three eleven. Oh my God at least he got. Though I mean, that's all. We hadn't Croatia you know. cabbages and potatoes. That's true. That's true. Retirement possibly, not the greatest idea. The tetrarchy Diocletian. Had built fell apart after he retired basically as soon as he left the three emperors and their sons that were left went. So now we fight to the death to see who gets control all this ship ourselves, right? Yeah. Cool. The guy who came out of this unscathed was Constantine who had famously turned the Roman Empire Christian which must have just been seriously great for the seriously seriously anti-christian Diocletian the here in his retirement. Anyway. was famous for having God come to a minute dream and tell him. He would win the battle of the million bridge this bridge outside of Rome where Constantine Bell not some Gothic hoards Sasanid invaders as you might imagine but it was actually against the son of one of Diocletian Co emperors just straight up civil war. Constantine was also known for building and Imperial Palace in the city of by Zante him and renaming it after himself and the name Constantinople would stick for about a thousand years before it was changed to Istanbul. The new palaces establishment also shows that over time the city of Rome itself was becoming less and less important than the Roman. Empire I'M NOT GONNA explore the topic to deeply here because if I went into the little workings of the Empire's here for days but as time went on the major cities, power began to drop and the Senate's power and influence went along with it. In three thirteen constantine developed the edict of Milan, which made the persecution of Christianity and any other religion in the empire illegal. It also returned to the church, its confiscated property. Constantine was baptized just before his death in three thirty seven. He put off his baptism for as long as possible because at the time it was considered that your sins only began accumulating when you were baptized. So that way he could sit in as much as you wanted by being. Said essentially on his deathbed he couldn't really do all that much sitting before a death therefore practically guaranteeing entry into heaven loophole. Yeah loopholes yeah. That's a big one. No word on whether or not that worked out for. So Anyway Constantine left the empire, his sons, splitting it into three parts and they in an absolutely shocking turn of events immediately started fighting one. This cycle would continue for the next half century and the last emperor to fully control of the Roman Empire as a single entity would be Theodosius who died in three, ninety five. By four hundred, the Roman empire was permanently divided between East and West in four prefectures. Ultimately. This was because the empires finances were no longer great. Thanks to years of mismanagement a few and thanks to a few unfortunate plagues. The population had dropped enough that one man simply could no longer raise the armies that were required to guard the whole empire but makes sense. So you heard it here folks pandemics literally led to the downfall of the Roman Empire. So where your masks where your mask everybody wash your Sh. Germanic. Tribes, the vandals, visigoths mainly, we're constantly doing their part in attacking the empire and Rome was just getting worse and worse and worse at defending from them. In Fort. Ten alaric King of the visigoths actually managed to make it to Rome and sack the city. It was the first time. This had happened in eight hundred years and t moralize and already very demoralized populations. Attila the Hun also did some pretty good damage to the empire mainly through demanding a ton of money so that he would actually attack them and because they couldn't handle the hands attacking they just paid him all the money. So they also had no money at all still the as also as the Hon spilled into Europe, a number of barbarians mainly the third by the SAR mations and the goths spilled into the Roman. Empire as they tried to attempt to run from the attacking huns but rather than embracing these so-called barbarians and using them to increase the army and tax space, the Roman Empire did their best to alienate them so that they never developed or loyalty to Rome and so after the Huns collapsed, they left a power vacuum and the goths stepped in taking the opportunity to attack and Rome had nobody to call for to help them. Certain four seventy six ad the emperor. Romulus. was deposed by barbarian general named Oto. Asir and this is considered to be the end of the western Roman Empire and where ending our story today, the Eastern Empire would continue under the name, the Byzantine Empire, and the Holy Roman empire was just its own separate thing, a collection of unified groups and mainly modern Germany and Italy from eight hundred, eighteen o six. Basically it shows how strongly the men in power in Europe still looked at the Roman. Empire 'cause they went. Cool I want us to pretend to be that again and took the name the made it a Wiebe more Christian. Some scholars consider the Byzantine Empire to simply be a continuation of the Roman empire and Merck the end of it as being fourteen, fifty, three year the Byzantine Empire fell to the Ottomans but four, seventy, six C E is the generally accepted year of of the fall. The Goths did. They did the goths did it but also the Romans were. Now. Let's be honest you. My Gosh. That was amazing. I felt like I took a real journey through time and space. Names to Oh. They're great. They're great. I'M GONNA name my kid that Germanic kissed your Mana Kiss Kiss. Kalibbala. Don't have any kids named. Niro out there either. No although.

"Because it's so small you can walk anywhere that you want and not get lost like we could. We didn't get lost so I love the fact that it's gorgeous any European capital. I've been to but it's so small that it super accessible I other than you know. We're comparing somewhere like Vienna or or places like that. That are also jaw dropping beautiful. It's just a miniature version of that. I'll take it because I'm a generous person. I will concede to the fact. That Lubiana is more beautiful and quaint than Zagreb Zagreb. It is a cool city. We were there for one or two nights. It's Nice. It has some beautiful architecture but having that river and the pedestrian walkway on either side of it in. Liliana is something absolutely gorgeous. As I like to say or stunningly beautiful. Whatever it is it is however I mean. There are so many more cities in Croatia. That are sending in my opinion. Because you've got. We've got nick which we already mentioned. And even while it is a little bit overrun with cruise ships. Coming in and out. It is in my opinion the most beautiful city I have ever seen. And it's it's also small. Then you also have these other medieval cities where every and it just feels like. You're living in a different century while also just being on the coast so you have split which is Gorgeous Diocletian palace which is one of the oldest Roman ruin. That's preserved you can walk through it all. There's lots of fun restaurants shops and it's really gorgeous and it's right there on on the coast where you can have the biggest ports in. I think the biggest port in Croatia isn't split. You can take the ferry to all of those gorgeous islands that I have mentioned so many times. You've also got Makarska which we did a road trip. I mean talk about road. Tripping is one of my points as well. Croatia is one of the coolest road tripping countries. Because there's so much coast you can. We drove from Zagreb down to split. We stopped a way off the way apple. Vj Lakes but we drove from Zagreb to split. I mean that drive was not so epic however split down to Dubrovnik is gorgeous. We stopped Makarska. The very first time that we did that. Talk about a beautiful Queen Little City. Oh my goodness I have the picture hanging up in our house. I loved it so much. Then you also have the drive on the Pelvic Peninsula did Korcula and then we drove from Kortua down. Yeah you rolling your eyes because you know. I'm winning this one. I mean it's all coastal drives by the C. You Know No. We drove through the mountains as well again not the Alps but the rockiness of them juxtaposed up against the does see. I mean seeing mountains. That's everybody's dream. That's why like Slovenia. Could you got the Alps? You got real else or not next to see. I mean we have the mountains right there. I'll be there a little bit smaller than the Alps. A lot of bit smaller. They're still striking next to the Ocean. Like the city's just. Kinda go up and that is just stunning to me. So you've got Makarska Dubrovnik Split Korcula. We've got revenge in in history and the northern part of of Croatia. There's just so many gorgeous places to see now. My heart lies in the domination coast. That's where it's at for me but history is also you know it's it's it's a cool place to be issues okay. Dalmatian coasts is my faith one of the things that I love about Savina and Lubiana specifically is the fact that you are so centrally located so people don't know where SELENA's I don't blame you it again size of New Jersey here punches. Well above its weight creches cool but it gets pretty remote like when you get down in Dubrovnik and you get down split like you are starting to get very far from anything else. Obviously you have the water on one side your Bazi on the other side so you can get the Sarajevo. But you're certainly a long way away from anywhere else in Europe and then you sit in Slovenia and you say wow right to the West is Italy. I could pop on over to Venice. Milan right there. I could hit up Switzerland. Variously only co OP in Austria boom. Vm Sows Berg. I'm in Bratislav. I'm up in Budapest. Let me go up to Prague any of these areas. You're you're sitting at such a central point of Europe especially of that region of Europe which is considered. You're basically right. It's funny because they call themselves Central Europe right. You're basically right in between Western and Eastern Europe. And it's such a hub to get anywhere that you want to go so that you could sit there. You could take the motorways very very European saying the motorists there or you can just hop on a train and you can get to any of those big cities and they right at your doorstep. Where if you're going from Croatia you're definitely going to have to go and get on a flight or you're gonNA take a really really long train ride to get to any of them so for me. The accessibility to the rest of Europe. When you're sitting there in Lubiana like if you look at a map it just pin it. It's right there next everything else. You can just go anywhere. Your little heart desires including amazing places that we talked about Buddha Paschke sovereign. Even we're not talking about those countries we're talking about Savini. I'm just talking about the fact that you're you get to any of that and you know you want Slovenia's small so you might want to go somewhere else because it's not that big whereas when you're in Croatia you don't need to go anywhere else because you have over a thousand islands over twelve hundred miles of coastline. You've got hiking if you really now. Twelve hundred miles. I thought it was a thousand much. You got stat. Oh sorry no. It's a thousand miles of coastline and over twelve hundred islands. I you know I mean. There's there's so big there's a lot to see and do in this country so there's no need to leave especially when you are applied with good food and and good wine. Are we ready to go? There are we. Are we ready to out? I brought out Vigo already. He brought out in. The world. Enchilada was all finding good. But it's not gonNA sustain you for a whole entire trip. I'll run on July auto all day every day. Well I happen to like a little more sustenance in my life in liquid for actual physical food for Him Croatia. Some of the best wine in the entire world. There's so many amazing wineries both white wine and red wine. I think that people talk about wind. They talk about Spanish wine and talk about Italian wine even French. You Know Champagne what have you? Croatia has so many amazing wineries. And again you can drink wine in these medieval cities. They have wind bars. They also have incredible food. Go ahead saying yes The best meal I've ever eaten was in a very UN touristed remote part of Croatia culture stack and we went to the seafood restaurant there as we drove down the pell Jezek peninsula. It was the best if we ever have. We got the seafood platter for two. It was enough to feed three adults in Mensa. I'm really just amazing. Grilled fresh seafood caught that day. You know by the owner of the restaurant. Who's the fishermen WHO's the chef? It was so delicious like we still dreaming about in talk about it. And that's just one meal I mean. They also have amazing local cheeses Croatian cheeses they have amazing cured meats the same as you can find in Italy but you know Kareishe should does it to it. Has that whole vibe of the local cheeses and the meats and the winds and they do a lot of like the cantaloupe and per Shudo. We've had they're just so good so fresh I love it. It's my favorite thing to eat and that paired with the wine of Croatia I mean I could just I could live there in fact hopefully someday maybe I do live there. Well you know that. I don't have much of a leg to stand on when it comes to fighting against Vittachi. Which is the best meal that we had on record on this podcast of saying? Both of US agreed. That was the best meal that we had in two thousand nine hundred nine so fine. Amazing seafood in In Croatia the Food Lubiana and the food in Slovenia itself. I think has a bit more variety. So they do have incredible seafood. There Vino relay which is right in Savannah we love but they also have a lot of I would say maybe more eastern European influence food as well. So you've got your Barack. You've got your Your meats your shave appease things like that so while there is not a restaurant that stands out at quite as much as Petacci in Croatia. Which is our favorite meal two thousand nineteen. I think that they're that Savini as a whole it's gastronomic influence and its gastronomic Kind of identity is up there with Croatia and I think that there's a little more variety in Slovenia and Croatia. What else am I going to say? I throw on top of that as you've already mentioned the beautiful delicious creamy incredible Gelato at Vigo and Yeah I'm going to say that you know there's some good eating and some good drinking and Slovenia as well may not their own wines not much of wind guy but there is some cool stuff there the last point for me for Slovenia as why it's better than Croatia and this goes along hand in hand with the touristy thing is that Savina is also now cheaper. I'm not going to say much cheaper than Cratia. There are some things that are much cheaper right independent where you are with. The tourist crowds to Creche has come a a rise in price especially for like accommodations and stuff. So if you're going in the peak season not always going to be really crowd. It's GonNa be pretty expensive. I mean we're talking Western Europe prices at this point. It's true we I went there in like two thousand fourteen. I think and it was much cheaper than it was last year when we went. I mean so for me. I'm sitting there saying. Listen it's cheaper get to Safina while still a bit more undiscovered be like the people who went to Cratia fifteen years ago. You feel like you have a hidden jam at your fingertips that people have not discovered yet. I just to me that holds a lot of sway. This idea that there's less people s people who know about it it's a it's a bit under the radar it's a bit of a hidden gem it's cheaper and I just love the fact that Slovenia for being so tiny has everything. I could want a great little city. A little bit of coastline super accessible to the rest of Europe. And some really cool stuff right around. It Lake bled and the Alps right there in a country. The size of New Jersey. So for me is Slovenia. I mean Slovenia is a beautiful country. But for me I love being near the water and twenty miles of coastline. Just is not enough for me and while Piranha is a cute. It'll teeny tiny city. I much rather have my pick of ten plus coastal cities that are like Perran. I mean even more because when you come at the islands in like we were on court. Shula incorporate self has its own little medieval city. When we went to the island of we went to bowl and that was its own little city. I mean there's just so many you could we haven't even seen all of CRATIA. We've been there three times and I just want to keep going back because there's so much more to see and you know as far as affordability goes it is a little bit more expensive than Slovenia but it's still cheaper than the coastline in Italy. The coastline in France. I'm I don't know I mean about speen in in Portugal but it's still pretty fantastic as as for as for affordability. Well you guys have it. I we didn't hold back. We went at.

"We've done a Selena destination diary, we love Sylvania. I didn't realize how close they were to each other. So from Zagreb, you can get to, like blood to two and a half hours. You can get to Lubiana in about an hour and a half. So if you're in Zog grab instead of going south, or if you have some time saga, we didn't that's another thing you could do and go up to Slovenia, and then come back and then make your way down the coast. But we didn't do that this time, but we have been to Ludhiana, and like blood, and it is definitely well worth a day or two in my mind, even more if you have to go up to Sabina, but we didn't. We went south, we try to get into police say, we couldn't we got into split and five years ago, four years ago, five years ago, we stayed in split for two in two weeks. And that was when we first did our destination diary, and so we have a few little things to add to this, but we are only in split for a night day and night and day here. So we went. Through pretty quickly. When we talk about places to stay you neither of the times, have we stayed in Diocletian palace. So it's the I think best preserved Roman palace in the world. And it is beautiful right there on the prominent beautiful split is such a pretty little city in. It's right on the coast. Obviously. It has a huge port and it has the most ferries. I think going out of it because there's a lot of islands right off of split. And we just we love it there. I think it's a beautiful old city to just walk through. It's not as popular or crowded as debris of Nick. So it just feels like a little more relaxing. Yeah. And so you can stay in Diocletian palace, which would be a neat experience. It's easier and there's plenty of options if you stay outside, as well, if you have a car, which we did, if you have luggage, a lot of luggage, anything like that, you can't drive into. Diocletian palace. So, you know, you have to take all you have to park somewhere and then take all your stuff with you. So similar to if you were staying in the old city of Dubrovnik you have to bring your stuff with you, because you have to park outside of it. Because it's pedestrian only same as Diocletian spouse, just depend, what you want staying in the palace would certainly be at neat feel, we have stayed just outside, and we're talking about a five minute walk to the palace each time. So this time we stayed at a place called house. Sandra cute highly recommend it, it was a little close in the place. We stayed last time. We'll link both these up but last time, we took an Airbnb at Natasha's place. We're there for three weeks, both of those were an easy walk to the main promenade in the pals again, five maybe seven minutes, max, you're also very close to the main beach, there, budge PC beach at either of those places. So I, I would say stay outside of the palace, unless you just going to be there a couple of nights, and you have a backpack, and it's just one or two go. You go.

Aegis would be hermaphrodite when that has both over the testes if I'm not mistaken, there's a lot of marine biology. There's a lot of marine creatures that are hermaphrodites. Exactly. Yeah.

"Twenties for AccuWeather, I'm John Feerick. And he's pretty at ten twenty k k welcome back to the final segment of amplify just about probably twenty minutes before we we closed down with Mike Aquilino ways. If you've listened the program that I don't have to tell you. The so much to learn. And it's so fascinating you wanted to be able to learn more. And I hope by listening to what we're doing here that you will you want to get a copy of the book and read about it because there's so much so much more. We have for people at least touch upon between now and wealth until ten fifty nine. So we we have more time than usually we have Diocletian areas Julian the apostate in the story of the last four Diocletian you European the two hundreds Roman empire fell apart for decades disaster after disaster ruled cross the Mediterranean world, civil war was the normal state of political affairs. The economy fell to pieces plagues ravaged the cities and countryside emperors lasted for a few months, and then we're assassinated by their own guards. Who knew that the next emperor would pay them a hefty bonus to get on the good side. And that they. They could repeat the whole process again in a few months time and get another hefty bonus. And then came Diocletian and suddenly the world worked again, he came very close to being remembered as one of history's greatest heroes. The man who saved civilization when it was on the brink of collapse. Instead. Instead he found himself backed into a corner. He couldn't get out of in the world of the future. Would remember him as a monster? Yes. Yes. Diocletian was nothing. Like nero. Nero was was was self-indulgent nor cystic as I said he had he had no discipline Diocletian was a model of discipline. And he was a great administrator he came up with this scheme to divide the empire, and and have have four men who were operating as as emperors really to who. Were in chief positions and then to as their their backups who would eventually succeed them. And and it it should have worked. You know? He had this in place in order to to stop that cycle that you described at the beginning of the segment where there was all always someone angling for the office and and getting ready to overthrow the emperor. So he tried to make it work. But then he squandered all of that by investing himself in the greatest persecution of Christians that had been visited upon the church up to that time. It was a holocaust, and he decided to blame the Christians for everything that was going wrong and to launch this persecution. And it was a disaster. Because by that time Christians were already the largest religious group in the empire. It was a losing battle and the more martyrs. He made the more converts he made and then appoint comes when. Christianity is made illegal throughout the empire. And is the preferred religion of the western emperor himself. Yes. Yes. Spider in in Diocletian successor, really Constantine. And and Constantine Constantine. Legalizes Christianity, but another villain arises this time again from within the church, a heretic named areas, and and and and causes this cancerous heresy that threatens to divide the church in terrible ways. Just as the church had succeeded had become legal and Christians felt safe for the first time. Let me read the the introduction into areas. Areas was an obscure Egyptian priest who probably had more influence on the history of Christian theology than any Christian thinker sin Saint Paul. That's the say a lot. Yes. He was all negative influence. Yes. But one can deny the influence. No one can deny the influence because of areas the Catholic church had to define the relationship of the son to the father in clear and unambiguous terms because of areas we ended up with a nice scene Crees. But no one would have guessed for most of his life. This areas was going to set the world on fire. Yes. Well, he had a strange strange idea that that that the son was not co eternal or Coequal with. A father, and he thought the sun was inferior to the father. And and and that the sun was actually a creature of the father the father had created the sun. And so there were many ways that this was corrosive to the gospel. And and areas is special genius was in getting the word out. He would compose hymns that were very catchy hymns, and he'd give them these tunes and they would spread his false doctrine like wildfire. And so so it did spread with the help of some state officials and even some bishops. And it spreads so fast that Saint Jerome said the it was as if the world awoke to find itself Arian you wake up one morning, and suddenly everyone's Aryan one historian estimates that eighty percent of the bishops went in the direction of the Arian heresy. And yet yet the apostolic doctrine, prevailed an and overcame, even this obstacle. What was the way that? He understood the trinity that would have taken so many bishops to side it was rationalizing the trinity. He was saying look three does not equal one. You can't say you have one God in three persons that doesn't make sense. It doesn't correspond to anything. We see in creation. Well, it doesn't correspond creation because here we're talking about something that transcends all creation, but Arias areas put out this this rationale Listrik doctrine that the father the the God, we call father was not. Father from all eternity. He became a father. When he created the son and the spirit that this is what made him a father. We on the other hand. We Christians have always called him the eternal father. He was father from all eternity because he coexisted with the sun. So so areas was inventing a new religion that was more palatable to pagans and to rationalists it was it was very attractive because they they didn't have to stretch themselves so far to become Christians any ambition Bishop by the navy you CBS who helped him. Yes. You you CBS of Nick media who is very close to the to the eastern emperor and was willing to cut a lot of deals and and promote the the Arian doctrine, he became very influential in the empire and was very influential in the naming of bishops throughout the world. So so yes, areas was good at at cultivating. Strong influence. He knew he knew where to cast his locked politically toll talk a little bit about the council of nice. See there's a lot of interesting history. This. Yes. What happened was the the emperor Constantine saw that the Arian doctrine was dividing his people. It was creating all of this turmoil and Constantine as an administrator just wanted unity and peace because the empire did face threats from from the barbarian peoples the people live beyond their borders. So so he wanted unity within the empire. He wanted the Christians to get along. And so he summoned a council of the bishops to stall to solve this problem. And and areas would be there to present his side of it. He was opposed by his Bishop from Alexandria Alexander. Who is a very, holy man. Alexander though, his great strength was his secretary who a genius at theological genius by the name of Anthony Davis, and it was Athanasios who articulated the the orthodox doctrine, the apostolic doctrine and put it out there in a four. Forceful way. He faced great opposition one emperor teased him and said, it's it's as if you think this this drama is at the nation's against the world. Well, it must have seemed that way because at the nation's lived a very long life, and he was Bishop for much of that life. And yet he spent most of his years as Bishop in exile fleeing for his life, and what happened then happened. Sometimes a day you write the areas either consciously or instinctively hit on a devious, but very effective strategy on the one hand they would proclaim that they hit accepted everything in the council of nice SIA. And then just go on teaching with they had been teaching on the other hand when Catholic Christians objected the Iranians would paint themselves as enemies of peace and unity. Yes. Yes. So so I mean that that's that they tried to play both sides of that. And they tried to find. Ways of saying that they held the orthodox doctrine without really holding it they tried to find language that would work for everybody. So they would they would occasionally use alternative creeds, and and try to try to spread those and you write that the Aaron movement did not die with areas. At by the time he died areas himself had become almost irrevelant irrelevant to the movement. He had said in place in its footing. Fragmented many ways is it tried to overcome the majority who had condemned it at nice CEA. It was like a cancer. It was metastatic. It kept changing. It kept mutating everywhere. It's spread. And and so it was hard. It was hard to do a refutation of all the different versions of Aryan ISM that were out there. And I'd say it probably took about one hundred years for the church to work through this crisis. So think about it no one who was alive at the beginning of the crisis lived to see its resolution, and that tells us something that we can't expect maybe resolution of all of our problems in our own day. Because if the Arian crisis could not be solved by a council and by geniuses like Apanavicius and basil and Gregory. You know, we we might have to wait. And we might not live to see the resolution of our problems today, and you right that some people believe that Islam in a way is area Newsham taken to its logical conclusion. That's right. Because in in the the teaching of Islam Jesus is presented as a mere mortal a mere man a prophet, but but someone who's human a creature and not God co eternal and co equal to the father, Julian the apostate. Yes, you right Constantine. The first Christian emperor delayed his baptism until he was very near death. He knew that the emperor business was a dirty job. And he was counting on the waters of baptism to wash away the various sins he had to commit to be an effective ruler. When he had his own wife and son executed, for example. It might have shocked a Christian conscience. But for Roman emperor. It was just business as usual every emperor had his family problems. How does Julian the apostate enter into this? Well, well, when Constantine died he left he left three sons and and other relatives, and and and his his his oldest son. Wanted to get rid of everyone who might be a rival to the throne. And so he had many members of his his own family killed cousins uncles just had them killed in this massacre. He he he spared two small children one is Julian and his older brother Gallus. They were spared gals because he was sickly Julian because he was just a little boy and they were seen not as a threat, but they knew their history. I mean, Julian knew what had happened, and he seethed all through his childhood with anger toward his his Christian cousins who had murdered his father and other family members. So so Julie and tried to be dutiful at least appear to be dutiful and do the things that were expected of someone in the Royal family because he didn't want to he didn't want to be killed. He was watched very closely, and he was allowed to grow to adulthood, and then he was given responsible positions in the military always managed by his his his cousin and the emperor. And and always kept under control. Julian always took careful note that that the murderer of his father professed Christianity, and he held that against him. So Julian in his early adulthood reverted to the pagan religions, the traditional religion of Greece and Rome, and he really gave his heart to it. And once Julian succeeded as emperor he tried to turn the clock back and turned the empire back to a pagan empire and revived the old religion after fifty years of legal Christianity, it didn't work. So well for one thing most of the religion had converted. Sincerely to Christianity for another thing. Paganism was never the kind of religion that was organized and Julie and tried to impose an organization on it. He tried to make it a mirror image of the Christian church. With its own pope with its own bishops with its own priests, and deacons he tried to to impose the structure of the church on on paganism, and it just didn't work people pressed against it rebelled against it. He tried to to force it. Anyway, he tried to marginalize Christians. And some people say that was his master stroke by forbidding Christians to teach in the schools, for example, because they they would have to teach Roman literature, the old Roman literature, and they shouldn't be teaching about pagan myths if they didn't hold onto those midst themselves, so what he did. There was move Christians out of the public conversation move them out of public life and mandated by law, and if he had lived long he would have succeeded in marginalizing the Christians in public life, but he didn't live long. He had a very short reign. He was killed kind of mysterious. Early in battle at the Persian frontier. Yes, you're right. On reminds me of politics in some in some sense today as for religious practice, Julian never force Christians to worship the pagan gods. But he would often hold his audiences in pagan temples. So the Christians couldn't come without joining in the pagan worship if you wanted access to the emperor you had to give up your gala. Leeann superstition. Yes, soon gal soon Julian declared that pagans must be preferred to Christians in government positions. And then he prohibited. Christians from practicing law now Christians were squeezed out of a garment out of government, which in imperial days was the main career path for anyone with ambition. Yes. Julian left religion up to everyone's own conscience. But he was making it clear that you couldn't have anything to do with society, unless your conscience agreed with his that's right. And we and you draw the analogy with with the political situation today where we find this absurd situation where the federal government is that tries to force the little sisters of the poor to act against their conscience. And to say that they really can't be in the business of religion. The charity the business of charity if they won't toed the line on abortion. And you right..

"I thought he did that in a clever video always calls heads to because he's de pass it onto him because God is the head of their head of their life. So they always call ten so they knew he was going to call hands. Right. So we'll see Reggie Wayne had been Terry city. Always call ahead because you bet on your dick. Philosophies. Ever said to me. So it was a kind of a game of telephone. Reggie Wayne there. It's a real shame. But yeah, I believe that it would be nice. If Mahomes got the bottom like the college rules, though, everybody is going to college rules. I think those will suck too. I think they take away mostly because I'm upon her. So I think they take away a huge part of the game. Another thing they kept zooming in on Julian thumbs, I thought it is bicep. Yeah. They kept saying looking at again, there's a little quiver you haven't. Then they show Connor. There's a little quiz show. The Ingles showed the other angle. I think it is by set. I don't know that one ain't gonna look like there was about a three inch gap between his biceps and the ball. See I didn't see that. I saw what his hand showed both sides. I agreed that it didn't touch them. Fuck up from the one that looked like hitting his bicep caused the ball the turn. You're like. Oh, yeah. So whatever they kept showing the thumb angle from the side. Like the optical luge inside like look at hits. And then they showed a straight on it. And it was nowhere near as so it's like, okay. So that automatically disqualifies that the bicep I didn't think they showed an angle that showed. No, biceps it to be honest. I didn't think they showed. There was like a shadow, I guess that showed up on his bicep there. But they kept zooming. I thought there was doing it on the wrong parts personally. Br member those refs only see what the TV people say that is in that is a TV there in that Diocletian Blake men with as little earpiece, and he's looking at the little tiny little screen that is not he's not doing shit. None that he's you're standing there might as well be talking to himself. They're not even talking to them. They're talking amongst each other in there. I think they're listening to the announcers to to see what the announcers are saying in New York, and in the headquarters there where they have all the TV's, but they kept zooming in on the hands. I didn't think it was the hands because it was clearly showed on that. I thought his by some maybe hit him. But. What are we a millimeter away from the pain? There's a millimeter from the patriots there and absolute in eighth of an inch for the patriots to lose that game again. And it's like this these things just continue to happen because they're the golden boys upper, I don't get it. If they're going to review scoring place whenever throughout the game. And I know it doesn't they should be able to review penalties that absolutely changing everything. The roughing the passer the Ruffin passer pass interference non call. Everybody's been saying for twenty four hours CFL you can challenge why not give to half you made a call. I disagree with it. Let's go to the tape. Well, see the CF L. I think is kinda shitty football. But the. Those are good. I just said this on the Pittsburgh morning show. We're we have the challenges because technology has surpassed the human eye, right? Like the refs. Everything's happening in such a quick quick fashion. The refs have no shot out there. Especially on these old white dudes who were very unethical. They have to keep up with these people running four to forty s in new ball flying fashion it's ever run. But if you challenge something you should be able to challenge absolutely anything like in that saints game that I've been saying this for a long time now that saints thing should have should have been challengeable. The roughing the passer against Tom Brady that should have been challengeable. And they say if you get both challenges, right?.

"It's Christmas Christmas. It'd be great to do. It would be great on Christmas to give to CSI Christian, solidarity international. They're hoping people around the world who are not only unable to celebrate Christmas. But they're being horribly persecuted for their simple faith in in. What we call the Christmas story. So we want acknowledge that. And we want to say to you, folks. If you've got our website Metaxas. Talk dot com, you'll see the banner and you can give it's a wonderful thing to do. You can do it in the name of a relative or a friend. It's a beautiful beautiful thing to do. I just wanna wanna mention that. We're talking to William Federer who has written yet. Another fantastic book. This one is called there really is a Santa Claus. No seriously. No, no, no. I'm not kidding by William Federer Bill. Welcome to the program. Now, we've got a lot of questions short as you claim. There's a Santa Claus. Have you ever seen him with your own eyes? No, okay. All right. What about what about Bigfoot you ever seen big foot monster? All right. Then that's I just want to just I want to be clear have not seen Santa Claus. And yet you claim and yet that there's a real Santa Claus. So we're going to need you to back that up Bill. Well, I if I go through the story, I think some of the answers will come out, but after nNcholas gives away all his money. He's going to join a monastery of Zion in the holy land. But before he makes his vows to the Lord. Some out tells them not to hide his light under a bushel. So it goes back to Asia Minor and gets off at a city called my rough now before he leaves he stops off at the church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. This is a lot of crazy. Interesting stuff were joking around. But this is amazing. So Saint Nicholas back then before he was a Saint he decides that he wants to go to the monastery where it's called the monetary of Siahaan, and it's in the holy land. And he's about to join and he decides not to and on his way back. He stops off at the church and the Nativity and Mark Twain when he visited the holy land in the eighteen hundreds ski wrote a book called innocence abroad published eighteen sixty nine he goes to the church of the Nativity in Mark Twain writes this this spot where the first merry Christmas was uttered in all the world. And from whence, the friend of my childhood Santa Claus departed on his journey to gladden and continues to gladden the roaring firesides on wintry mornings in many distant land, forever and forever. So even Mark Twain acknowledges, yes. Nncholas stopped off at the church other Nativity before he went back, and he gets back to Asia. Minor today that's Turkey and the city he stops. At is my rub and unbeknownst to him the Bishop had died, and the church leaders could not decide who the next Bishop was gonna be where's Myra again, the south west coast to Turkey. Okay. But it's still called Asia. Minor. So nNcholas one of the church leaders has a dream. That's the first person to church the next day would be named nNcholas. He was to be their next Bishop. And sure enough he goes in they bring him into the back room, and they announced to him that he's supposed to be the Bishop. Well, he was not too excited because the Roman emperor Diocletian was arresting bishops and killing them. So it was sort of like you beat the Bishop assist. You. I don't know. You'll be division. So he finally agrees is arrested. He's put in prison awaiting death. And suddenly, the emperor Diocletian is struck with an intestinal disease. So terrible that he abdicates thrown or. Boss. Our God is an awesome God. Yeah. That is really up. And we know this is this is true. I mean, this is not just some crazy legend Diocletian did was struck with an intestinal disease. He was he was a very wicked wicked. Emperor. What year are we talking about right now? Bill may I three zero five AD is when he abdicates may literally was trying to exterminate Christianity. He had lost some battles with Persia. He asked his generals why they told them he had neglected the Roman gods. So he forces all the military to worship the Roman gods, which ironically forces all the Christians out because there had been a revival of Christian Christians in the military, and then Diocletian decides to use the military to force the entire Roman empire to return to worshipping the Roman gods. And so he goes province. Systematically, province-by-province killing the church leaders, tearing down churches burning up, you know, the scriptures. And so when he abdicates the next emperor is hilarious. Keep continues the persecution. He struck with an intestinal disease. And dies must have been something in the water. And with no emperor. It's a toss up at four generals decide to fight it out. One of them is constant time. He's in New York Britain, his men, get the news, surround him and yell hail Caesar. So Constantine with his army marches toward Rome to fight MEC sensuous at the battle of the mill vian bridge. The year is three twelve eighty the night before the battle Constantine reportedly sees the sign of Christ in the sky, and he puts it on all of his shields and cymbals he wins which the sign of Christ. It was the first two letters of the Greek name for Christ. And so the the first time for Christ begins with an x Ray by the second letter. It makes. Makes the are sound is called the row, and it's written as a big P. And so this big exit appea- Constantine puts on all of his shields and cymbals over the centuries that got shortened just to the exit. It was called the Chi or the Christ's cross or criss cross. And that's where we get the X hyphen M. Yes. Said of Xmas being oh, they crossed out Christ. No, that's the Greek letter that said for Christ. So ex MRs okay by you. Right. And it became part of the written. Oh, so you would sign at the Christ cross today that sign at the X or cross my heart swear to tell the truth. It was the crisscrossing, and then they would get to show sincerity, and that's come down to us as the Xs and the os on the bottom of a Valentine beat. X is you're swearing before. Christ. You're gonna keep your pledge to this person. And then the, oh, they would kissed the bible or kissed the cross to show sincerity. I did not know that. Emperor Constantine when he was still the general on his way to Rome that when he saw the sign in the sky. I always told that he saw the cross in the sky, and then he heard voice in this name in this sign conquer, and but you're saying that he saw the KAI ro correct? Yes, it was a big x and a big P. And then he heard the sound of in hawk signal. Vince is in this sign you'll be invincible so often you'll see this third century Christian symbols of x with a P and underneath I h s v in hawks signal. Vince is in this sign you'll be invincible. And but anyway, it's incredible. He issues the edict of Milan. Three thirteen eighty and this is the first time in history that Christians are not persecuted by the government. For three centuries. Christianity have been persecuted by the government. But now the eating and so Nichols has let out of jail and he preaches publicly against paganism. What's what is it? The temple of Diana it emphasis, the apostle Paul preached against Anna, worship at episodes. And after nineteen two hundred fifty years, later and emphasis is still worshipping Artemis or Diana. And so that the temple to Diana or Artemis is twice as big as the Parthenon in Athens while I will never knew that that is holy cow. Wow. Integrity to have something that big. That's amazing. Do the do the do the foundations or the ruins of that still exist? The foundation does. But the story is that this temple. It was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world it had a hundred and twenty seven huge pillars and temple prostitutes. It was the Las Vegas of the Mediterranean. People would go on pilgrimage to Diana. Yeah. We know what you're gonna do and so Nicolas preaches against this and the people get stirred up, they tear the temple down. And anyway, so the ruins of it are still there. But they took away the stones until now all you have is the foundation. The idea there is that big anybody's visited the Parthenon. I mean to imagine something twice the size of that dedicated to Artemis. That's that's pretty extraordinary. And during this time, they get rid of the Olympics. The Olympics for those that have never been to. I went there in college. But they did them make it. Obviously. No, no in antiquity that first of all, obviously, it's only men competing, and there was something about the purity of of the the body, and yeah, they they would they would compete without so much as a single back then they pronounced it naked. Yes. That's right. There you go. And so so they end the Olympics and then nNcholas preaches against exposure of unwanted infants. This was their version of abortion, the Roman practice was the mother would bear the child and late at the father's feet. If he picked it up and liked it and thought it looked healthier. They could afford it. They would keep it. But if you did not pick it up, the mom had put the baby in a basket and set it outside and exposed to the elements, and it would die. And so a lot of the early early. Christians would hear these babies crying and collect them and raise them as orphans. And that's where we get to the stories of, you know, an elderly couple gets a knock on the door, and they open it, and there's a baby in a basket. Well, that was a mother trying to do something other than expose it. But so when nNcholas preaches against this. He would have been a pro-life preacher today. That's extraordinary. I mean, I didn't I didn't realize that. I think we're at a time in this segment. Hang on one second folks when we come back. We're just going to be talking more about Christmas. Stick around. One of the best doctors in America is about to let you in on.

And so he goes province. Systematically, province-by-province killing the church leaders, tearing down churches burning up, you know, the scriptures. And so when he advocates the next emperor is Galerias he continues the persecution. He's struck with an intestinal disease. And dies must have been something in the water. And with no emperor. It's a toss up and four generals decide to fight it out. One of them is constant time. He's in York Britain, his men, get the news around him and yell hail Caesar. So constant time with his army marches toward Rome to fight mex- sensuous at the battle of the mill vian bridge. The year is three twelve eighty the night before the battle Constantine reportedly sees the sign of Christ in the sky, and he puts it on all of his Shiels and symbols he wins, which the sign of Christ. It was the first two letters of the Greek name for Christ. And so the for the first time for Christ begins with an x Ray by the second letter. It makes. Makes the are sound is called the row, and it's written as a big P as this big exit. Appea- Constantine puts on all of his shields and cymbals over the centuries. It got shortened just to the exit was called the KAI or the Christ's cross or criss cross. And that's where we get the X hyphen M A S set of ex-miss being oh, they crossed out Christ. No, that's the Greek letter that said for Christ. So ex MRs okay by you. Right. And it became part of a written oath. So you would sign at the Christ cross today that sign at the X or cross my heart's where tell the truth. It was the Christ cross, and then they would kiss show sincerity, and that's come down to us as the Xs and the os on the bottom of a Valentine is you're swearing before Christ. You're gonna keep your pledge to this person. And then the old they would kissed the bible or kissed the cross to show sincerity. I did not know that emperor Constantine when he was still the general on his way to Rome. That when he saw the sign in the sky. I was always told that he saw the cross in the sky. And then he heard a voice saying in this name in this sign conquer, and but you're saying that he saw the KAI ro. Correct. Yes. It was the big x and a big P. And then he heard the sound of in hawks signal Vince is in this sign you'll be invincible so often you'll see this third century Christian symbols of x with a P and underneath I h s v in hawks signal Vince is in this sign you'll be invincible. And but anyway, he issues the edict of Milan three thirteen AD. And this is the first time in history that Christians are not persecuted by the government. For three centuries. Christianity have been persecuted by the government. But now the edict of Milan. And so Nichols has let out of jail and he preaches publicly against paganism. What's what is it? The temple of Diana at Ephesus. The apostle Paul preached against fan of worship at emphasis after nineteen hundred fifty years, later and emphasis is still. Worshipping Artemis or Diana. And so the the temple to Diana or Artemis is twice as big as the Parthenon in Athens while I never knew that that is holy cow. Integrity to have something that big. That's amazing. Do the the foundations or the ruins of that still exist. The foundation does. But the story is that this temple. It was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world it had a hundred and twenty seven huge pillars and temple prostitutes. It was the Las Vegas of the Mediterranean. People would go on pilgrimage to Diana. Yeah. We know what you're gonna do and so Nicolas preaches against this and the people get stirred up, they tear the temple down. And anyway, so the ruins of it are still there. But they took away the stones until now all you have is the foundation. I mean, the idea there is that big and anybody anybody's visited the Parthenon. I mean to imagine something twice the size of that dedicated to Artemis. That's that's pretty extraordinary. And during this time, they get rid of the Olympics. The Olympics for those that have never been degrees. I went there in college. But they did them make it. Obviously. No, no in antiquity that first of all, obviously, it's only men competing, and there was something about the purity of of the the body, and yeah, they they would they would compete without so much as a single back then they pronounced it naked. Yes. That's right. There you go. And so so they end the Olympics and then nNcholas preaches against exposure of unwanted infants. This was their version of abortion, the Roman practice was the mother would bear the child and late at the father's feet. If he picked it up and liked it and thought it looked healthier. They could afford it. They would keep it. But if you did not pick it up, the mom had to put the baby in a basket and set it outside and exposed to the elements, and it would die. And so a lot of the early early. Christians would hear these babies crying and collect them and raise them as orphans. And that's where we get to the stories of, you know, an elderly couple gets a knock on the door, and they open it, and there's a baby in a basket. Well, that was a mother trying to do something other than expose it. But so when nNcholas preaches against this. He would have been a pro-life preacher today. Extrordinary? I mean, I didn't I didn't realize that. I think we're at a time in this segment. Hang on one second folks when we come back. We're just going to be talking more about Christmas. Stick around. Dennis Prager can always expect one thing from the left. He feels that marriage equality is bad for straight couples. I've ever said that in my life. How often things your made up about me people on the left? That's how often that is the reason that they can be a piece with what they believe because they make up things they oppose the.

"It's Christmas Christmas Christmas. It'd be great to do. It would be great on Christmas to give to CSI Christian solidarity. International. They're helping people around the world who are not only unable to celebrate Christmas. But they're being horribly persecuted for their simple faith in in. What we call the Christmas story. So we want acknowledge that. And we want to say to you, folks. If you got our website Metaxas talk dot com, you'll see the banner, and you can give it's a wonderful thing to do. You can do it in the name of a relative or a friend. It's a beautiful beautiful thing to do. I just want to mention that. We're talking to William Federer who has written yet. Another fantastic book. This one is called there really is a Santa Claus. No seriously. No, no, no. I'm not kidding by William Federer Bill. Welcome the program. Now, we've got a lot of questions for short as you claim. There's a Santa Claus. Have you ever seen him with your own eyes? No, okay. All right. What about okay? What about Bigfoot you ever seen big foot, the Loch Ness monster? All right. Then that's I just wanna just want wanna be clear have not seen Santa Claus. And yet you claim and yet that there's a real Santa Claus. So we're gonna need you to back that up Bill. Well, I if I go through the story, I think some of the answers will come out, but after nNcholas gives away all his money. He's gonna join a monastery of Zion in the holy land. But before he makes his vows to the Lord some tells them not to hide his light under a bushel. So it goes back to Asia Minor and gets off at a city called Myer up now before he leaves he stops off at the church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, this is this is a lot of crazy. Interesting stuff were joking around. But this is amazing. So Saint Nicholas back then before he was a Saint he decides that he wants to go to the monastery where it's called the monetary of Siahaan, and it's in the holy land. And he's about to join and he decides not to and on his way back. He stops off at the church, and Linda and Mark Twain when he visited the holy land in the eighteen hundreds. He wrote a book called innocence abroad published eighteen. Sixty nine he goes to the church of the Nativity. And Mark Twain writes this this spot where the first merry Christmas was uttered in all the world. And from whence, the friend of my childhood Santa Claus departed on his journey to gladden and continues to gladden the roaring firesides on wintry mornings in many a distant land forever and forever. So even Mark Twain acknowledges, yes, nNcholas stopped off at the church other Nativity before he went back, and he gets back to Asia. Minor today that's Turkey and the city he stops. At is my rub and unbeknownst to him the Bishop had died, and the church leaders could not decide who the next Bishop was going to be now one of Myra again, the south west coast to Turkey. Okay. But it's still called Asia Minor, Brian, so nNcholas and one of the church leaders has a dream. That's the first person to church the next day would be named nNcholas. He was to be their next Bishop. And sure enough he goes in. They bring him into the back room, and they announced to him that he's supposed to be the Bishop. Well, he was not too excited because the Roman emperor Diocletian was arresting bishops and killing them. So it was sorta like you'll be the Bishop assist. You. I don't you'll be vision. So he finally agrees is arrested. He's put in prison awaiting death. And suddenly, the emperor Diocletian is struck with an intestinal disease. So terrible that he abdicates the throne. Or loss. Our God is an awesome God. Yeah. That is really up. And we know this is this is true. I mean, this is not just some crazy legend Diocletian did was struck with an intestinal disease. He was he was a very wicked wicked. Emperor. What year we talking about right now? Bill may I three zero five AD is when he abdicates literally was trying to exterminate Christianity. He had lost some battles with Persia. He asked his generals why they told them he had neglected the Roman gods. So he forces all the military to worship the Roman gods, which ironically forces all the Christians out because there had been a revival of Christian Christians in the military, and then Diocletian decides to use the military to force the entire Roman empire to return to worshipping the Roman gods. And so he goes province. Systematically, province-by-province killing the church leaders, tearing down churches burning up, you know, the scriptures. And so when he abdicates the next emperor is Galerias keep continues the persecution. He's struck with an intestinal disease. And dies must have been something in the water. And with no emperor. It's a toss up at four generals decide to fight it out. One of them is Constantine. He's in York Britain, his men, get the news, surround him and yell hail Caesar. So Constantine with his army marches toward Rome to fight mex- sensuous at the battle of the million bridge. The year is three twelve AD the night before the battle Constantine reportedly sees the sign of Christ in the sky, and he puts it on all of his shields and cymbals he wins. What's the sign of Christ? It was the first two letters of the Greek name for Christ. And so the the first time for Christ begins with an x Ray, all the KAI. The second letter it makes. Makes the our sound is called the row, and it's written as a big P. And so this big exit appea- Constantine puts on all of his shields and cymbals over the centuries. It got shortened just to the exit. It was called the Chi or the Christ's cross or crisscross. And that's where we get the X hyphen M E. Yes. Instead of miss being oh, they cross Christ. No, that's the Greek letter that for Christ. So ex MRs okay by you. Right. And it became part of a written. Oh, so you would sign at the Christ cross today that sign at the X or cross my heart where tell the truth. It was the Christ cross, and then they would kiss additional sincerity, and that's come down to us as the Xs and the os on the bottom of a Valentine beat. X is you're swearing before. Christ. You're gonna keep your pledge to this person. And then the, oh, they would kiss the bible or kiss the cross to show sincerity. I did not know that. Emperor Constantine when he was still the general on his way to Rome that when he saw the sign in the sky. I was always told that he saw the cross in the sky. And then he heard a voice saying in this name in this sign conquer, and but you're saying that he saw the KAI ro correct? Yes. So it's a big x and a big P.

"Now, typically bite from a source will scatter it predictable way at the same angle and energy at possessed before the collision, no matter how intense the light. So think of it as a dimmer switch. If you have a dimmer switch on installed in, you're looking at, say, a table and low light. As you intensify the light, the tables shape doesn't change, its color doesn't change him. It brightens. So you might get more of of you of what the color is, but it doesn't change in any real phenomenal way that was not what they were saying. They were getting a totally different result. So if we could scale this up like their results in observe it with our eyeballs, instead of with super sensitive sensors, it would mean that. If you were to use that same dimmer switch, you could see that as you turned the light passed a certain level of intensity. The thing you're looking at that table would actually appear to change shape and color because you were using light that was of that great intensity. That's essentially what they found. Except again, they weren't using diffuse light. They were using a super focused very high powered laser and they weren't looking at a macro object. They were looking at electrons. The team also observed that the electron being pummeled by photons would release its own photon so electron would become stimulated in other words, but that this ejected photon would begin to absorb the energy of the scattered photons from the laser. This transformed the energy and wavelength of the ojected photon, and it would turn into an x Ray now according to the researchers such an x Ray could have useful applications in nanotechnology. The x Ray only lasts for Sean. Moment, but has an extreme amount of energy, and it could be used to help create three dimensional images of stuff on the Nanos Skopje scale. And that would be phenomenal because the NATO scale is so small that the lower end of it, you're dealing with stuff that's actually smaller than the wavelength of visible light, which is why you cannot use an optical microscope to look at stuff that's on the Nanos scale. The wavelengths of light are just too big to pick up the objects you're actually looking for. So that's kind of crazy. But this could potentially allow people to create three dimensional visualizations of objects that are on the Nanos scale. It could also have other practical applications, including medical ones. It could allow x Ray technicians to create images at a much higher resolution which would be really useful to look for stuff like micro fractures. For example, the standard x Ray machine might not be able to detect because it wouldn't have that level of resolution. It could also be is another applications such as in security systems to scan for potential weapon. Or other security threats. And it's increasing our understanding of physics and general, which could lead to practical applications. We can't even -ticipant so that's Diocletian. But we have more to talk about just a moment.
