  • Yes history repeats itself

    By simply observing what's happening to us now and in the past history repeats itself. For example, Mayon volcano erupted in 1615 and erupted in 1814 it now called an history of the mayon vocano in albay. By just observing the eruption of the volcanoes it happens again and again.

  • Look at our history to see the proof!

    History does, in fact, repeat itself. Look at all those battles one hears about in war - one side is always outmanned, outgunned, and outgeared in general, but they end up winning! Why? Because they have good leaders. A few examples - tons of battles in the Revolutionary War of the US against Britain - they had better men, better guns, and better supplies, but the US ended up winning because the US had better leaders - Washington and the French. Another example is the battle of cinco de mayo, 1862 - the peasants were basically screwed, but they had General Zaragoza to lead them, so they ended up winning. Yet another example is a few of the battles of the American Civil War. The Union had better trained men, better guns, and better supplies, and more of all of the above. Yet they ended on top because they had all those amazing generals - "Stonewall" Jackson and the like. So yes, history does repeat itself, quite obviously.

  • History undeniably repeats itself.

    No, it will not be word for word, not every part will be the same. History will not literally repeat itself. However the earth will continue to rotate around the sun and people will cause conflicts that are either world wide or between two human beings. History repeating itself is unavoidable. The nature of mankind has always been the same and always will be, the only differences in it are the developed technology, which change the way we display this nature.
    "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." - Albert Einstein. This quote brings up another good thing. It applies to one trying to fix a problem, advising them to look at it from a different perspective. Applying this to history repeating itself, you can't look at a situation in a way that one has not already looked at before in a similar situation. Surely Einstein did not intend for this sentence to be used this way, but it is true that history does indeed repeat itself.

  • Yes history repeats itself

    Not to get religious but the Bible, Torah, Koran and majority of spiritual holy books have written down stories telling the history of the world. That's why if you read carefully you notice the same story is written /told in many different versions and they all speak the same warnings about what will happen if we continue down the same path. But the misconception is that these predictions are foretelling of things to come but that is not the case. What it is telling us is that the same sets of events that have happened before countless time before that has lead to a breakdown of society and it will happen again unless we as a collective change and go about things in a different way. So maybe the religious people are right that the end of days will come but not by the hand of God or Satan but by our own hands. To us that are used to living in a certain way with easy access to food, medicine, clean water and ability to communicate ,travel and receive information I believe that it will seem like the end of the world if our system is destroyed. Of course this is all speculation on my part ,my opinions based upon reading and research I have done on my own. Educate yourself and you decide.

    Sincerely,

    NoOne is EveryOne

  • Yes,history repeats itself.

    Just simply look around you that every thing in nature at one time get lost its charm or existance but with the passage of time it"ll grow up and gets its place just like the circle of earth around sun complete its circle at one point but from the same point it starts its new circle for continution of its nature.Then we see the geographical changes due to the explosion of lava.During this process some geographical changes happens like the gap between the earth gradually this gap increase its size and finally became a separate part but with the same process earth gets new pieces of land...So from this natural example we may assume that history of course repeats itself

  • History most certainly repeats itself.

    It's all based on power & money. If tomorrow someone offered you a million dollars to commit a crime would you do it? Almost all will answer yes. If you're struggling financially you'll want the money.
    Look at History. Germany was depressed financially during the 1930's.
    It took but one man (Hitler) to have millions of people look the other way while millions were murdered. Same for the killing of Christ.
    While he was nothing more than a pest to the Romans he was a threat to the power of the head Rabbi at the time. It's the 21st Century and nothing has changed. Money gets thrown at programs that never reach the poor. Our children ( and some adults) have relied so much on technology that they cannot do simple math or express themselves correctly. Out of the box thinking? Gone.

  • History Repeats Itself

    History repeats itself because there will always be people that agree with the past and things were better than the way they were. For example, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated, like Abraham Lincoln. There are people that believe they know what is best for the world, just like Hitler did.

  • History repeats itself

    Yes history does repeats it self. No matter how much knowledge or experience we gain we still have people in this world how use this information for evil. The knowledge of history is extremely important so we don't repeat it but unfortunately we do. This world is full of patterns weather we like it or not. I dont feel there is anything we can do to change it.

  • More or less

    I believe in the old cliche, the more things change, they really stay the same. And while this doesn't always happen this way, I feel more or less, history does tend to repeat itself one way or the other. It really depends on the particular event; however that could be repeating itself.

  • Elements repeat, not history.

    Certain elements of history repeat--dictators rise and fall, civilizations destroy their resource base and collapse, the balance between openness and closedness in a society fluctuates. These, and many others, are *elements* that make up the history of any group, society, or culture. And the shifting balance between different and/or opposing elements gives a feeling of cyclicality. But the exact combination of elements, and their fluctuations, does not repeat. Prohibition is an example. Prohibition was enacted as a Constitutional Amendment; current bans on drugs are matters of a huge network of laws. Different. Both spawned an enormous black market, resulting in gang warfare. Repeat. Public outcry repealed Prohibition; It has had very little effect on the current legislative scene. Different. Both resulted in enhanced powers of the Federal government. Repeat. And so on.

    This is not to say that one cannot learn from the elements that do repeat, or nearly so (It's just unlikely to the close order of impossible). But it is a simplistic distortion to say that history repeats.

  • Hitler will never be born again.

    From a Judeo-christian point of view, time had a specific beginning point and proceeds linearly without repeats. There will be only one creation, only one messiah and only one judgement.

    From an academic point of view, events arise in time that are similar to events that happened previously. But they are only similar. Adolf Hitler will never be born again. He will never again rise to power in Germany. Just because one event is similar to a previous event is not indicative of repetitive history.

  • History is not an unending circle

    Many use the war raging over this planet through distance and time as proof as that history repeats itself.
    Other insist that all humans are born with motives for power and money, and are prone to use the same [evil] techniques a few people used, spanning till even the beginnings of recorded history.

    But.

    Wars are prone to happen, and so are bad - worldwide - decisions. We are all human, and we make those decisions, for both good and bad reasons.

    We have evolved. We have technology, and universities, and industries. Our wars are for different reasons than for those a few hundred years ago. Because a few bad people mad some horrible power hungry decisions in this world does not dictate that history is condemned to be stuck on repeat.

    All People are not power hungry. They are not born without morals. Those few who are power hungry are the same ones who do not know the history, which is the only reason they are condemned to repeat it

  • NO It Does Not

    History does not repeat itself because each event that happens in the past does not again happen in the future. There may be recurring themes in history but it does not technically REPEAT itself. Themes are completely different then recurring themes. So history most definitely does not repeat itself. Otherwise the future would be the past.

  • Of course not!

    People have a tendency to make connections, its how the brain works. It makes it easier for us to remember and think about things if they're connected or put into categories. If you were to roll a hundred sided die, and the first five numbers we roll are 34-51-22-9-84. Now, we roll the dice another 100, or a thousand times with no major repeats, and then suddenly we get a 34... 51... 22.... Then a 9! And then a 32. So we saw a similar set of numbers, and we all saw the connection but we all know the dice are random. They aren't repeating themselves, there was just a similar roll of dice at the beginning, and in the middle.

    There are 7 billion people in the world. So, yes, occasionally a small set of circumstances happens to have similarities, and your brain makes the connection. No, history is not repeating itself.

  • According to Mark Twain, "History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme."

    I agree with this because this quote actually found the explanation for as to why people believe that history does repeats itself. We might have found slight similarities between the "past" and the "present", but it doesn't mean that the whole history repeats itself. In a world where every people living in it is unique, it is hard to claim that history keeps on repeating itself. Also, it is undeniable that there had been major changes to our world over the course of time, like the extinction and succession of animals, and the technology the people from the "past" and from the "present" used. Now, given all of this variations, we can't really say that the history repeats itself.

  • "History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme," according to Mark Twain.

    I agree with this quote. There could be some slight similarities between the past and the present, however the things are majorly different. In a world where every people living in it is unique, it is hard to claim that the past is repeating. Also, it is undeniable that there had been major changes to the world over the course of time, for example, the presence of the organisms. Dodo bird, an extinct animal, is obviously not present in the "present", but it had been present in the "past".

  • No, history doesn't repeat itself

    This world is a massive place, and technology too has evolved since the past. Are you enjoying life right now? If the answer is no, please get off this computer right now, go outside, and breathe in some fresh air. The development of society has caused the evolution of technology, and even though internet makes our lives more convenient, it is certainly not a great aspect for us. We need to get a life. We should stop using Facebook, Twitter to contact our friends and family anymore. We need to become more social and speak to their actual face. The world will never be the same as before. Technology has ruined us human beings. But I do love my iPhone 5.

  • No, history does not repeat itself

    Humans are extremely intelligent creatures. We have come up with new and amazing ideas such as the creative toilets in Japan, and fantabulous cupcakes. Nowadays, there are delicious cupcakes such as red velvet cupcakes, butter cream cupcakes, and blueberry cupcakes. Now ask yourself. Have there always been red velvet cupcakes, butter cream cupcakes, and bluberry cupcakes? The answer is a NO. People have become more and more creative each day, year, and century. If you see someone walking in the streets today, you never know what they are thinking. They could be thinking about creating a whole new world with aliens and monsters that wuold rule the world. Cockroachs are beautiful creatures that have helped to develop a more convenient and perfect world. People, don't be sad. Look up at the sky and just smile. The world is a much more pleasant place than you think.

  • No, history does NOT repeat itself.

    Most things that happen are not repeats, they are things that help/hurt us. But all of these things can be learned from, which causes history to no repeat itself, just better itself. Not everything that happens in this world is just a repeat. There are new ideas forming, new things coming into the big picture. Yes, I know that wars have still been happening, but that's just one tiny detail in this whole universe.
