The documentary "Armas, gérmenes y acero" focuses on the history of weapons, metals, and human evolution. It discusses how humans are very similar to each other, and that no society has a monopoly on these characteristics. The documentary discusses how the inhabitants of New Guinea brought Eurasian cattle but did not bring sheep, cows, or horses. They didn't evolve the same way as Europeans and Americans because they did not have the same resources. Diamond is convinced that the division of the world between rich and poor is based on the same land. However, his view of the world may have some light to shed on the points of historical change.

  • 00:00:00 Jared Diamond, a professor and ornithologist, travels to New Guinea in search of evidence to explain the origins of human inequality. He soon becomes interested in the people of this remote island, who are some of the poorest on Earth. Diamond begins to learn their language and learn about their culture, which is quite diverse. He also discovers that the people of New Guinea have been able to survive and adapt to changing circumstances for thousands of years.
  • 00:05:00 Jared Diamond presents his documentary, "Armas, gérmenes y acero," in which he interviews a man who asked Diamond why the white man has so much power and we natives of new Guinea didn't ask the same question of Jelly Me. Diamond found the answer to be quite simple and obvious, but when he never formulated the question himself, he couldn't answer because the white man has so much power and we natives of new Guinea don't either. Diamond concludes that any explanation based on race is absurd, and he knows too many intelligent natives of new Guinea to believe that there is anything genetically inferior about them. He concludes that the difference in our world today is due to the nation with the most power on Earth being white, and that understanding this would explain why certain civilizations developed more quickly than others throughout history.
  • 00:10:00 In 13,000 BC, the world was recovering from the effects of the last ice age, and becoming increasingly warm and wet. One of the regions in which human beings thrived was the middle east, which at the time was known as oriente medio. 13,000 years ago, this region was much less arid than it is today, with more forests and plants. The people living there lived the same way as people on the rest of the planet, forming small groups of nomads who travelled frequently and built shelters wherever they could find animals to hunt or plants to collect. Women played an important role in hunting during this time, as they were skilled at stealth and had a deep knowledge of hundreds of animal species. Hunting requires skill, stealth, and a knowledge of the outcome of countless animal hunts, which is why traditional societies tended to focus more on food collection than hunting. In this part of Papua New Guinea, women are responsible for collecting resources from the trees, such as water from the palms. Palm trees provide a reliable source of food, as they are able to extract the water inside their trunk. However, most of the trees in these jungles don't yield any edible fruit, and only a few sacks of food are available
  • 00:15:00 The documentary "Armas, gérmenes y acero" (2004) adapts Jared Diamond's book about how humans evolved from hunter-gatherers to agriculturalists. The film discusses how a massive climatic change around 12,500 years ago disrupted the ice age and led to the development of more productive environments. This led to the development of cereal crops, which in turn led to the rise of civilization. The documentary focuses on the discovery of an 11,500-year-old permanent settlement near the Dead Sea called Drag Kite. The settlement was discovered using radiocarbon dating, and archaeologists believe that it was one of the first permanent settlements on Earth. The settlement was occupied by 40 to 50 people, who lived in round, oval-shaped cabins made out of mud and stone. The documentary provides an overview of human history up to this point, including the development of agriculture and permanent settlements. It explains how the discovery of Drag Kite provides evidence of human evolution and the beginning of human civilization.
  • 00:20:00 In this documentary, researchers discuss how the domestication of plants and agriculture, which began in the Middle East some 10,000 years ago, changed human behavior and led to the development of civilization. The transition was a major turning point in the history of humanity, and one that researchers are still trying to understand.
  • 00:25:00 Diamond discusses the origins of inequality in the world, and how the agricultural revolution was a major factor in the development of inequality. He argues that the people of the highlands of New Guinea were one of the first groups to develop a complex agricultural system, but that their lack of proteína caused them to be one of the most underdeveloped societies in the world.
  • 00:30:00 According to the video, 9,000 years ago, the first settlements in the Middle East began to grow larger, with the necessary agricultural development necessitating the use of more productive animals. At the same time, humans began to domesticate wild animals, allowing them to provide a constant source of food. Nine thousand years ago, a major transformation took place in the way humans interacted with animals-beginning a process of domestication that led to humans controlling their movements, food, and breeding cycles. Over time, domesticated animals became an integral part of the new agricultural way of life, and we know that the first communities without domesticated animals already had cereal crops and that this combination of animals and plants proved to be very beneficial. After the harvest, animals were allowed to be eaten. After the development of plows, animals were also used as a kind of fertilizer for crops. However, for centuries, there was no need for plows because there were no animals able to pull them. Today, pigs and sheep are the first domesticated animals in the world, followed by other large animals such as cattle, horses, and camels. All of these animals were initially used for their meat, but eventually became very useful in other areas, such as transportation and
  • 00:35:00 In Jared Diamond's 2004 documentary "Armas, gérmenes y acero," he discusses how, over the course of human history, some animals have been more successful at being domesticated than others. He discusses how some animals, such as the elephant, are simply too large and difficult to domesticate, while others, such as the cabra, are more adaptable. He also talks about how, over the course of 10,000 years, only 14 animals have been successfully domesticated, all of which originated from areas east of the Mediterranean. The domestication of these animals was, in part, due to the fact that early farmers were able to access some of the best agricultural land in the world.
  • 00:40:00 The archaeological site of Ward in Jordan has been dated to 9,000 years old, but has some unique features of a city. Hundreds of people lived here in rows of houses that were a marvel of technology. Whenever I visit, I experience a feeling of admiration for what they would have done here. It is a place of great effort and control of energy. Also, the district inside the house and the floor is free. It is a law that is free to live. In life, there is a start and soul of Carey de House. He is strong in insight. I am very happy to be in his mind. He is the strong current consumption and expenses of the cluster house. In proportion to the growth of the population, it was possible to produce more food in an appropriate amount for sustaining specialists of the community freed from the burden of agriculture. Some individuals became in disposition to develop new skills and new technologies. When I first saw New Guinea in the 1960s, the tools used there were based on stone, similar to what is used in some parts of the island before the arrival of the Europeans. Our stone tool was a general practice in all of the territory. That led me to ask why this place did not create
  • 00:45:00 Jared Diamond's book, "Armas, Germenes y Acero," discusses the effects of human activity on the environment and how these activities have led to the current state of the Earth's ecosystems. The documentary adaptation covers the history of the development of agriculture, from the origins of farming in the Middle East to the present day, and how the spread of agriculture has led to the development of civilizations throughout the world. One of the key points made in the documentary is that the spread of agriculture was aided by the fact that crops and animals can be successfully domesticated only in areas at the same latitude as their natural habitat. The documentary also covers the history of European colonization of the New World, and how the spread of agriculture led to the development of new societies there. Without access to crops and animals from the crecente fértil, the American and Canadian continents would not have been able to support large populations, and the development of industrial societies would not have been possible.
  • 00:50:00 Jared Diamond's documentary "Armas, gérmenes y acero" focuses on the history of weapons, metals, and human evolution. He discusses how humans are very similar to each other, and that no society has a monopoly on these characteristics. The documentary discusses how the inhabitants of New Guinea brought Eurasian cattle but did not bring sheep, cows, or horses. They didn't evolve the same way as Europeans and Americans because they did not have the same resources. I don't say that these divisions will be permanent, but on the contrary, everything is in flux. The cities of Papua New Guinea are becoming increasingly developed and their citizens are trying to reach the level of development of the rest of the world. Unfortunately, they still have a long way to go. Diamond is convinced that the division of the world between rich and poor is based on the same land. However, his view of the world may have some light to shed on the points of historical change. In the centuries that followed, the Spanish conquistadors started an era of world domination by conquering new territory. The era of weapons, metals, and iron was born.
  • 00:55:00 Diamond's documentary "Armas, gérmenes y acero" looks at the origins of power and explores how geography and land play a role in the history of conquest. He argues that what separates the victors from the conquered is land and geography. The documentary focuses on the Spanish conquest of Central and South America.

01:00:00 - 02:00:00

The documentary "Armas, gérmenes y acero" explores the history of the Spanish conquistadors and how they used superior military technology to conquer the Inca empire. Diamond argues that the success of the European conquests was due to the continent's three extraordinary forces of conquest - weapons, germs, and steel.

  • 01:00:00 Jared Diamond discusses the history of the conquistadors, focusing on the Spanish conquistadors Francisco Pizarro and Hernando Cortés. He explains how these conquistadors conquered empire by conquering the Incas, who were a very powerful empire at the time. However, because the Spanish conquistadors succeeded in imposing themselves on the Incas, rather than the other way around, this seems like a simple question. Diamond goes on to explore the origins of Pizarro and his subordinate, Ruedas de Saca, and how their power was built. He then turns to the modern world, discussing inequality and how certain cultures have had an advantage over others in the past. He argues that the development of agriculture, which occurred in an area known as the "Crescent of the Middle East," led to the growth of complex societies. Finally, in the 16th century, when European farmers were beginning to adopt animals from the new world, horses and mules, there was no need for saddles or harnesses. This, in turn, gave Europeans an edge over their rivals.
  • 01:05:00 The documentary "Armas, gérmenes y acero" (2004) adaptation of Jared Diamond's book discusses the history of horses in Spain, their use for transportation and for warfare, and the development of different riding styles. It features interviews with Javier Martin, a rider who has been practicing traditional horse riding since he was five years old, and Óscar Bernal, an expert in Inca history who explains that the Spanish conquistadors were not only able to conquer lands with their horses, but also use them to intimidate and kill their opponents.
  • 01:10:00 The documentary "Armas, gérmenes y acero" (2004) presents the history of firearms and their development. It covers the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire and how Spain's superior military technology enabled them to conquer and rule much of the world. The Spanish conquistadors were armed with some of the best firearms in the world at the time, thanks to Spain's large army and capital city of Toledo. The Spanish had been fighting the Muslims and other European armies for 700 years at this point, and firearms had greatly improved in terms of both technology and usability. The Spanish inherited this technology and raised it to new levels, using firearms to kill enemies in close quarters and break enemy lines.
  • 01:15:00 In the 16th century, Europeans began using long, elegant swords as weapons of dueling. However, the fashion for this type of sword soon spread to Europe's Renaissance period and became popular among aspiring knights. Swords like the "rocker" became symbols of power and status for those who desired to conquer anything. The Spanish conquest of America in the 1530s was spurred by the thirst for wealth and the desire to find one's place in the world. The Europeans who sailed to the new continent were unaccustomed to life among the "primitive" natives, who they thought posed no threat with their weapons in everyday clothing. As the explorers approached the Inca camp, they were met with fear and uncertainty. Pizarro sent a small group of his best riders to greet the Inca emperor, Atahualpa. When the riders reached the Inca camp, they were met with a surprising sight: the emperor's 80,000-strong army. De Soto's visit had two primary objectives-psychological and physical. The psychological objective was to intimidate the emperor and prove that he was not alone in his challenges. The physical objective was to show the emperor that the Spanish horses were not afraid of him. When De Soto got close enough to
  • 01:20:00 This documentary discusses the history of weapons, how they were developed, and how they were used. It also discusses the development of written language, and how it was important in the spread of weapons and knowledge. Finally, the documentary mentions the invention of the printing press, which was essential in the dissemination of weapons and knowledge throughout the world.
  • 01:25:00 Jared Diamond explains how the geography of continents influenced the spread of plants and animals, and humanity's subsequent exploration and colonization of the world. In his book, "The Third Chimpanzee," Diamond shows that human populations in different regions of the world have evolved to be very different, largely due to the different geography of their respective continents. This difference in geography prevented the spread of plants and animals, ideas and technologies, and prevented the people of highlands in South America from benefiting from the technology and ideas that had been passed down through Eurasia without any problems. In 1532, the Spanish conquistadors arrived in the Andes and met with the Inca emperor, Atahualpa. Atahualpa was amused by the Spanish soldiers and ordered them to disarm; the Indians were soldiers and dancers, but without weapons. This event demonstrated Atahualpa's lack of military experience and his naivety about the Spanish conquistadors. His goal was to make the populace of Cajamarca see the Spanish as gods and to show that some Spaniards were afraid of them. This event was very convenient for the Spaniards, as it gave them an opportunity to discredit mythological concepts among the people.
  • 01:30:00 This documentary covers the events leading up to and including the capture of Atahualpa, the emperor of the Inca empire, in Cajamarca in 1533. Atahualpa was a powerful and charismatic leader, but his people were very afraid of the Spanish invaders and did not stand a chance against them in open battle. The Spanish were able to take Atahualpa by surprise by entering Cajamarca using hidden forces. There were reportedly five or six thousand men present, and behind them came the figure of Atahualpa himself, adorned with rich feathers and gold. Many of the people in the crowd were so scared they wet themselves. The men of Atahualpa's army occupied the plaza, but there was not a single Spanish soldier to be seen. The emperor was asked where the dogs and one of his advisors were, to which the latter replied that they had heard them because they were afraid of the Inca's magnificence. I listened to those words and took them to be true. I presented myself before you, gentlemen, the name of Christianity. Then Pizarro ordered his priest to go face Atahualpa. The conquistadors were obliged to try to convert the
  • 01:35:00 This documentary discusses how the Spanish conquistadors transported the Inca ruler to a makeshift prison in Cajamarca, thinking he would be killed. However, the Christians saved him from his error, because only warriors in battle can kill an Inca. Pizarro's army then retreated to the hills. Despite the huge numerical difference, horses, swords, and Spanish tactics were decisive in the Spanish victory. The conquistadors also had another weapon - an invisible weapon of mass destruction that had preceded them. This is how the war against infectious diseases is fought today, by studying disease-causing organisms in research centers such as the Porton Down laboratory in England. Ten or twelve days after the Spanish slave ship carrying the virus arrived in Mexico, one of the passengers had the early signs of a fatal flu. It was the first person to bring a lethal disease to the American continent. That virus was the Spanish flu, which soon spread throughout the native population. Within several weeks, the virus had infected dozens of Mexicans. Within a few more weeks, it had infected dozens of Mexicans' friends, and the virus' speed of spread was exponential. By the time Pizarro arrived in Mexico, the Spanish flu had killed
  • 01:40:00 The video documents how Jared Diamond discovered that the cause of most of the human deaths during the Middle Ages was actually the spread of diseases transmitted by domesticated animals. He argues that if the Europeans had domesticated the same animals as the Incas, the number of people susceptibe to those diseases and the number of people transmitting them would have been much higher, and the death toll would have been even greater.
  • 01:45:00 The documentary, "Armas, Germenes y Acero," discusses how Spain's conquests of America helped make the country one of the richest in the world. The conquistadors, who had come over with treasure from the Americas, changed forever the relationship between the new world and the old. The music in the documentary is instrumental and sets the mood for the discussion of weapons, germs, and steel. The documentary goes on to discuss how Europe's conquests in Africa, Australia, and Asia were inevitable due to the continent's geographical location and its history. Diamond argues that the success of the European conquests was due to the continent's three extraordinary forces of conquest - weapons, germs, and steel - which have shaped the history of humanity. Finally, the documentary details how Diamond plans to research the patterns of human history, and ask what role the weapons, germs, and steel played in the present.
  • 01:50:00 Jared Diamond's documentary, "Armas, Germenes y Acero," focuses on the European invention and use of firearms, agricultural tools, and metalworking to expand their empire across Africa. He explains that this technology, which led to Europe's success in North America, South America, and Australia, was reliant on the availability of land and the climate similar to Europe. The Khoisan people, who inhabited the area before the Europeans arrived, are an example of the success of this strategy.
  • 01:55:00 This documentary, adapted from Jared Diamond's book, covers the spread of European colonization and the role of firearms in this process. Dutch farmers, traveling in search of new land, are shown loading their wagons with guns and supplies and leaving Cape Town for the interior of Africa. The firearms allowed the Europeans to conquer and dominate much of the continent, and ultimately led to the spread of diseases that killed millions of native Africans.

02:00:00 - 02:40:00

The video discusses the history of weapons and their impact on human civilization. It documents the adaptation of Jared Diamond's book, "Armas, gérmenes y acero" (2004), to a documentary. The documentary discusses the history and use of weapons and their impact on human civilization.

  • 02:00:00 In 1838, a Dutch expedition led by Captain Jan van Riebeeck arrived in what is now South Africa. They encountered an African tribe of hunter-gatherers who were very different from the people they had been living among on the coast. The Zulus were a highly organized and militarily advanced people, and within a few hours of their arrival, they had defeated the Dutch colonists. The Dutch were not prepared for this attack, and within a few days, almost 300 of their people were dead. The Zulus were victorious because they had superior technology in the area of firearms. The Dutch were not the only Europeans to encounter the Zulus; other Europeans, including the Boers (farmers from the southern Netherlands), had also encountered them and were similarly defeated. The Dutch were not the only people to encounter the Zulus; other groups of Europeans had also encountered them and had similarly been defeated. The Zulus were a highly advanced people, and their victory in this battle was a sign of their power. The Dutch were not interested in who the Zulus were or how they had created their state; they only wanted to fight them and win. This battle demonstrated the power of weapons and the importance of technology in warfare.
  • 02:05:00 This documentary discusses how European colonists armed with firearms and steel tools managed to conquer much of Africa in the late 1800s. By doing so, they brought with them new diseases and other tools of civilization, which proved to be a disaster for the natives. Eventually, the colonists were defeated by a new enemy - the geography.
  • 02:10:00 The video discusses the European colonization of Africa, and how the lack of animals and plants in Africa led to the failure of this project. The colonizers eventually had to deal with the death of their animals, as well as the different climate. This led to the development of firearms and metalworking, which helped European civilization grow for centuries. However, the colonists eventually began to suffer from diseases that they had never known before. Despite this, the African natives were still able to survive and thrive by cultivating crops and livestock. Even today, Africa is home to thousands of tribal groups that are very different from one another. This diversity requires most African citizens to learn more than one language, and have a talent for survival early on in life.
  • 02:15:00 In this video, linguist Dr. Alex Man reports on her discovery that the African languages share a common ancestor, and that this ancestor was spoken in the Western African region some 5000 years ago. Man also discusses the importance of Google Glass for linguistics research, as she has been able to use the technology to study African languages more effectively. According to Man, the African languages share a number of similarities, most notably that most of them have a common root language that was spoken by a single group of people thousands of years ago. By analyzing linguistic data, Man was able to identify a family of languages known as Bantu that originated in the Western African region. Bantu languages spread throughout the tropical regions of Africa and beyond, and played an important role in the socioeconomic development of early African civilizations.
  • 02:20:00 According to Jared Diamond, the Europeans' introduction of diseases like malaria, which killed many of the native African population, was due to geographic factors. The diseases were endemic to tropical regions, where they had never before been encountered by Europeans. This led to a complete change in the typical patterns of European conquest, as the germs were now an advantageous weapon against the African natives. Europeans who died from these diseases were also the victims of countless other tropical diseases. African animals, on the other hand, had developed resistance to many of the European tropical diseases over the course of many centuries. These animals also could explain why malaria never caused the same devastation among the African natives as it did among the European colonists. The Africans' complex civilization, adapted to the tropical world, spread throughout the continent in a vast cultural and linguistic diaspora. It was not the arrival of European weapons that would future-proof this powerful tropical civilization; it was the Africans' own remarkable achievements in combating malaria.
  • 02:25:00 In the late 19th century, Belgian colonialists forcibly removed millions of African natives from their villages and put them to work in mines extracting copper and other minerals. Nearly a century later, in the early 21st century, railways still traversing Africa transporting ore from the continent's many mines still serve their original purpose of bringing Africa's natural resources to Europe. However, today's Africa is a continent of independent nations, and where the technology of arms, weapons, and armor fit into the modern context. I am in Zambia, one of the poorest countries in Africa, and one of the countries where European colonial rule left the most significant mark. Here I see cities and populations born of colonial settlement alongside mines and railway stations built according to European specifications, forces that were instrumental in shaping Africa's origins and people. Behind the conquest that brought Europe's armies to power are the arms that have sustained it over the last two centuries, weapons that might help us better understand Zambia's complex situation today.
  • 02:30:00 In this documentary, Jared Diamond discusses the effects of malaria on the modern world. He points out that malaria is still a major problem in Africa, and affects particularly small children, who account for about 45% of all patients seen at external hospitals in Zambia. Diamond also discusses the role of germs in history, noting that they continue to have a significant impact on the development of Zambia today. He notes that, while many people have become accustomed to death and disease in Africa, it is still a reality for many of those who love and care for the continent's children.
  • 02:35:00 In this documentary, Jared Diamond talks about how geography and weapons, such as weapons and germs, have been some of the most powerful forces in history. He explains that, in Zambia, these forces still exist and continue to shape the existence of different parts of the world. Malaria, for example, is endemic in Zambia and has been for many years, but through concerted effort by the government and the people, it has been eradicated almost completely. Diamond also discusses the case of Malaysia and Singapore, two countries that are among the richest and most dynamic in the world. He argues that, because Africa is also plagued by the same geographical problems and diseases as these other countries, but has not had the same level of success in eradicating malaria, the continent is at a disadvantage. However, with the help of new medicines and a possible vaccine, Africa could eventually overcome these challenges and become a rich and powerful nation.
  • 02:40:00 This video documents the adaptation of Jared Diamond's book, "Armas, gérmenes y acero" (2004), to a documentary. The documentary discusses the history and use of weapons and their impact on human civilization.
