Posted Yesterday at 03:21 PM by gladiatrice (The Life and Times of the Stuarts)
Updated Yesterday at 04:24 PM by gladiatrice

This entry contains a considerable amount of sexual depravity, but it is not the whole story of John Wilmot, which cannot be posted on this site. However, I do bade you read it, and I hope you enjoy.

When King Charles II succeeded to the English throne in 1660, he did so years later than he should have. In 1649, the English monarchy had been put to an end with the swing of an executioner’s blade to the neck of King Charles I. For eleven years, England was under the rule of Oliver...

Metaphysics, Survival and Religious Traditions

Posted December 16th, 2014 at 06:07 PM by Valens
Updated December 16th, 2014 at 06:26 PM by Valens

An excerpt taken from an article published on Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, with the title "Afterlife"
