That is the story that is claimed at least. What actually happened is difficult to know. According to Wikipedia, some claim that the Book of Esther should be seen as a historical novella, not as fact.
EDIT: And if a group wanted to murder another group, would it not be easier for them to do so if they convinced others that the other group was seeking to murder them?
Does circumcising a baby cause permanent changes to its developing brain? Hard to tell, since any attempt at researching this results in punishment and threats of legal action. submitted by tendiesonfloor to whatever

It is supposedly a profitable business to use the foreskin. See for instance https://www.babble.com/mom/3-strange-uses-for-infant-foreskins/, https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/a-cut-above-the-rest-wrin/ or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreskin#Foreskin-based_medical_and_consumer_products. So, there is among others a profit motive to circumcision, especially if the parents are not paid for it or similar.
Not only is the Out-of-Africa theory dying, we're learning African-Americans descend from an isolated population that interbred with an extinct non-human ancestor no one else did submitted by badweather to news

Do you hate child rapists?
"Jews have a very strong in-group bias and a distaste for gentiles": As in committing genocide is merely "in-group bias" and "distaste for gentiles"? They have manufactured wars (see for instance Jacob Schiff on Wikipedia), committed genocide again and again in their history (see for instance the early Soviet Union and Holodomor, the great Purge (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_operations_of_the_NKVD), the Red Terror, the gulags, etc., etc.), and are seeking it these days against Europeans as a whole. And then there is the whole mutilation of infants and sucking/licking off the blood of the penises... And so many other things.
"black people have lower IQ": If they were good people, who the heck would care? But they overall aren't good at all, and instead overall wretched (the Bantus at least). For instance, modern-day cannibalism in Sub-Saharan Africa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRuSS0iiFyo.

Would there have been a chance of survival or revival without Christianity? Without Jews in Rome? Some late Romans asked themselves whether Christianity were at least partially at fault, and "propaganda" ("pro-pagan"...) like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_City_of_God constituted some of the responses. I think Christianity ended up being considerably more benevolent than its intention and design was meant to be, but still slowly corrupting and destructive, especially compared to the old Greco-Roman heritage.

As far as I know, the Tiobe ranking is based on search engine term popularity. The Redmonk ranking has a somewhat different way of ranking, based on both GitHub projects and StackOverflow ranking, which seems a little bit more reliable (though might favour projects that tend to reside on GitHub and penalize projects that tend not to be hosted on GitHub or not being hosted publicly - which might well be the case for many/most embedded projects, which I would assume includes many C projects).
I could imagine that there are not many new projects started in C, outside of embedded programming at least, and that it was mostly just maintenance that happened in C. I once heard that C++ for some period at least had an increasing share of embedded programming, though C still has the advantage of being much, much, much easier to create compilers for than for C++ (I do not know if LLVM changes that to some degree given its architecture, in regards to embedded).
