    Switching religions didn't used to be the biggest deal that's why everybody was blindsided by abrahomosexual and all incorporated to the same 3 religions before anyone knew what was happening

    Greek Christianity was only practiced by White settlers in Africa. Semites were utterly repulsed by the Stoic ideas of "turning the other cheek", "loving your enemies" and "forgiving adulteresses" and thus avoided it like plague, they rather practiced Semitic forms of Christianity like Ebionism & Caelicolism or their native Punic religion.

      He was an ethnic Berber. Romanized sure, but still.

          So not Roman. That's the praenomen given to the brownhordes who were manumitted for acting as local collaborateurs. Not that it matters because Augustine literally said that he wasn't a Roman, but a Berber. Hell, City of God is mostly just him being a seething race communist about how superior the Romans and Greeks were to his people.

          It's interesting that nomads always seem to prefer Islam. Settled agricultural peoples like the Copts resisted conversion much more. Nomads like Berbers, Turks, Somalis, etc. all seem to take to Islam like fish to water. Probably because the Islamic practice of raiding the unbelievers gives nomads a religious justification for their natural practice of raiding other groups

          Actually the Copts took up Islam heartily. The portion who survive today as an ethnoreligious group are a very specific portion and are not indicative of the historical wider Coptic milieu.

      None of these ideas are stoic and were rarely practiced in early Christianity.

    Most of the Catholics were probably latinized, coastal city dwellers. The ones further inland were nomadic barbarians just like the Arabs were, so it makes they found Islam more appealing

        Exactly. Islam is the song of the nomad, a call to the ancient barbarians and their tribalistic ways. It makes no sense to the logic and ethics of settled people because it was not conceived with such a world view in mind. This is why so many "reverts" so quickly adapt to the Islamic way of thought, these people were already uncivilized at heart, so when they heard the song they listened. As long as there are barbarians there will be Islam and as long as there is Islam there will be barbarians

            No religion demands such thing and if one existed, it would have died out long ago, for the simple reason that constant war is exhausting.
            >Take over local infrastructure and install yourselves as ruling elites
            You just described every campaign of conquest.
            >Collapse due to infighting and tribalism
            Happens to pretty much every great empire.

            Islam is basically war: the religion. All countries must have a Muslim government or there is an obligation on Muslims to wage war upon them. You can even occasionally claim that other Muslims aren't the right sect of Muslim so they're fair game too.

            Having its foreign and domestic policy subsidised by the world's largest empire.
            The fact that memesrael to this very day is incapable of sustaining itself without absurd amount of political, military and financial support is a testament to almost eternal israelite racial inferiority and a reminder of why your kind were always at the bottom of the barrel, never having a land until granted one.

          Part of me thinks that if Muhammad never existed then someone else would have invented Islam eventually. Some Turk shaman on the periphery of Persia maybe, or another Arab or an African nomad. It's such a simple, appealing message: God blesses you and hates everyone else and he wants you to rule over and enslave everyone else.

    Berbers were pagans. What you had in north africa right before the muslim contest was a highly urbanized coastal area settled by christian romans, mostly in what is now Algeria and Tunisia, and a rural area inland inhabited by seminomadic goat-fricking moors in general conflict with the romans. The romans then were slashed/fled, the moors became the dogs of the arabs.
