    Actually, that’s a fair assessment of history.

    …or for some tech company.

    Well history is made by the people who can get their version documented the most.

    And it’s just as true for recent history. Events within our lifetime are so often recorded differently from what happened. Then a movie is made, and the alterations really begin.

    Some people go so far as to take to take the lyrics to pop songs seriously, and think that they’re all really things that happened to the singer. And we’re supposed to trust history books written about events ages before we- or the authors- lived?

    Yup – this has been going on since people first started communicating! Consider Plato mentioning Atlantis – heck, it probably goes back to the cave art that recorded a really good hunt ;-)

    How do you record history when at least 25% of the people can’t or won’t believe what they see with their own eyes?

    Ask any cop who has to take down several eyewitness accounts to the same incident. And still, there are people who think they can say with confidence what the future will be. Oh sure, we can’t get the past or present straight, but we’re going to proven right about things that haven’t happened yet.

    Mmm- no. Facts are what the record keeper says they are. No one has suggested that all recorded history is wrong, or that there are no accounts that can be trusted. But all historical records have been kept by humans, and humans have biases. Yes, we know a lot about the civil war. But if we knew everything beyond all doubt, and against any further research and investigation, then there’s no reason to ever write another account.

    Why I despise tha movie “Titanic” they had real stories of real people and they cut them out for the false story to recoup the funds it cost to make. I refuse to see it ever again.

    Well it was never promoted as a documentary.

    She’s right. Now they are going to rewrite Richard III’s history.
