  1. Human savagery by no means limited to modern times. Two of the greatest universities in the world and their cities were destroyed, scholars and residents killed at Taxila (1000 BC) and Nalanda (427 -1193 AD) by invaders from Asia Minor (read Muslims). Most recent example the destruction of Bamyan Buddha statues 180′, 125′ tall.
    These were some of the most uneducated, uncultured, fiercest people in the world and have been eternally loathed.
