I thank whatever gods there are that I was born unto these blessed islands. A place which undeniably has the world's most exciting history.

Ive been studying world history for years and truly nothing can compare to the epic story of Las Islas Filipinas.

Just compare ours to that of Japan or Ireland.

LOLz THEIR'S IS SO STABLE AND SECURE! WHICH MEANS...

BORING!

WHEN COMPARED TO THE SHEER EXCITEMENT OF PHILIPPINE HISTORY!
Yet why the fu-k are they given more media coverage in documentaries or movies?


embarassedlaugh.gif

That's all gonna change though. Their overratedness will soon be eclipsed. icon_twisted.gif

With all honesty and integrity a nation with an epic story such as ours is only destined for greatness.

I can see this pattern all through out the great would be powers of history. Before Spain became a great power it to had to endure various invasions (Invaded by Romans, Arabs, Greeks etc) and calamities that enriched their psyche and challenged them to build an empire. Likewise the Turks also had to endure constant pushing and pulling from enemies in Asia and Europe (Turkey being invaded by Arabs, Mongols, Crusaders etc.) Their tug-of-war inspiring and fermenting an empire decades later specifically the Ottoman empire.

The Philippines was like these countries but has the potential to be more. Having been invaded by many nations; militarily, culturally or economically borne from several continents spanning in fact the whole world: Spain, America, Japan, India, China, Mexico & Arabia yet miraculously our group of islands manages to survive and gain independence despite the overwhelming odds stacked against it. Thus forming an unbreakable bond which unites the countries, continents and culture groups of the world yet unique unto itself. Not unlike those other examples which were just invaded by neighbors but where still enriched enough by it but we are still in the pre-germination stage though. But I think the more the Philippines suffers, the more rot and decay it undergoes the greater it's potential.

Just like how the dead carcass of animals, plants or fecal matter feeds the fields of wheat ensuring a golden harvest, destroyed and decaying institutions always fertilizes a new society.

With the peerless history of our sacred soil we have much potential and as long as we hold true and learn from our mistakes (which is a damn lot) soon the seeds of greatness will burst forth.

All we need to do is to remember.

I can feel it my bones. Really. I think we can be a great power.

Elementary pa lang naririnig ko na sa mga matatanda na New Jerusalem daw ang Pilipinas. May mga kulto naman sa visayas at mindanao, dito daw lumapag ang Noah's ark o yung lost tribes of israel.

Sabi nila dating Lemuria.

Those info are getting mainstream already with the recently concluded First Alamat Conference sponsored by UP headed by Prof. Grace P. Odal. With Speakers such as the International luminaries like Stepen Oppenheimer, Wilhelm Solheim. All presented proofs scientifically by linguistic, genetic and cultural studies, the reality of the Sunda continent flooding, and migrations from Southeast Asia, Western civilization owe its existence to this EDEN IN THE EAST.

Who knows what exciting future, Filipinos will play a role in the coming Earth changes.

Sham,


Nahihiya kasi sila sa mga pino post mo. Muka kasing hindi kapani-paniwala. Sa akin lang, para hindi sila ma- irita, wag mo masyadong gawing spectacular ang dating. At saka lagyan mo ng maraming suporta yung mga claims para mas valid.

At mas mabuti kung pakonti-konti lang. Pag masyadong mahaba ang post, hindi na nababasa lahat.

Binabasa ko rin yung mga post mo.

At natural lang na may sasalungat sa yo

Pero may sasang- ayon din kaya patas lang.

Shambalista, while I can't agree with all the many theories you've posted here I admire your spirit and the fact that your aren't brainwashed and yoked with inferiority complex like most Filipinos...sigh.

For sure, the history is much more than what we've been told, but Filipinos are passive and like to bend over and...well you know!

The Philippines has truly had a unique history. And not has violent has the other nations in Asia who have been involved in many wars. The Filipinos have really not been exposed to really destructive wars except for WW II.
That in itself make Filipinos unique. More trusting of outsiders. Am I right or wrong??

If you haven't noticed. I ain't posting conspiracy theories no more. The threads I made right now are solidly backed by scholarly or scientific evidence.

Nothing great? confused.gif
Just look at the exploits of Jose Rizal or the accomplishments of our prehispanic island-states.

Our historical supremacy in trade which was LOST.


According to sources at the time, the trade in large native Rusun-tsukuri (literally Luzon made in Japanese) clay jars used for storing green tea and rice wine with Japan flourished in the 12th century, and local Tagalog and Kapampangan potters had marked each jar with Baybayin letters denoting the particular urn used and the locale the jars were manufactured in.[4][5] Of this flourishing trade, the Burnay jars of Ilocos are the only large clay jar manufactured in Luzon today with origins from this time.

The Spanish arrival in the 16th century saw the breaking up of these kingdoms and the establishment of the Philippines with its capital Cebu, which was moved to Manila following the defeat of the local Rajah Sulayman in 1570.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luzon#History

Or the miracle of the Philippine Revolution.

Our accomplishments are just frustrated, because we had the unfortunate luck of warring with every imperial superpower since the 11th Century.
But that will make our eventual victory all the much sweeter.

Have you been living under a rock? The Philippines has the most violent history in not only Asia but in the whole world.

Known Prehispanic Wars

* Sri-Vijayan conquest of the Philippines (The island group and the states of the Visayas are remnants of the Sri-Vijayan empire)
* Majapahit conquest of the Philippines (The Maharajah of Majapahit marries a Filipinos princess solidifying his rule on some of the islands)
* Attack of the Sultanate of Brunei against Luzon Empire (RESULT: Establishment of Manila as a satellite state of Brunei ruled via Muslim Rajahs,
elimination and absorption of the Luzon Dynasty, the "Lakandulas" into the Brunei Sultanate's puppet aristocracy)
* War between the Rajahnate of Cebu and the Barangay of Mactan (Rajah Humabon went to war with Datu Lapu-Lapu even before MAgellan arrived)
* Conquest of the Sultanate of Sulu against the Indianized Kingdom of Butuan (Result: 1/3 of Mindanao fell to Muslim hands which resulted into the
establishment of the Sultanate of Maguindanao)
* There are tons more! Most likely there was also a war between the Malays and the Negritos who were driven unto the forested highlands.

Wars during Magellan's arrival

* The war between the island-state of Mactan and Magellan's expeditionary forces with the Rajahnate of Cebu

Conquest of the Philippines by Miguel Lopez de Legaspi 1st Governor-General of the Philippines.

Between the periods of 1528 and 1559, he worked as a leader of the financial department council and as the civil governor of Mexico City. He was later commissioned by the viceroy, Luis de Velasco, in early 1564, to lead an expedition in the Pacific Ocean, to find the Spice Islands where the previous explorers Ferdinand Magellan, and Ruy López de Villalobos had landed in 1521 and 1543, respectively. The expedition was ordered by King Philip II of Spain, after whom the islands were eventually named. The viceroy died in July of that year, but the Audiencia and López de Legazpi completed the preparations for the expedition. On the early morning of November 21, 1564, armed with five ships and 500 soldiers, he sailed from the port of Barra de Navidad, New Spain, in what is now Jalisco state, Mexico. The expeditions were launched in Mexico with the help of Spanish flotillas and Aztec mercenaries.

This armed expeditions resulted into.
