How will a credible source like the History Channel


Er, the History Channel is NOT a credible source. They're a consumer-centered business. Nothing more.

Since when was the last time you got a history lesson in school or university that included prime focus on Ice Road Truckers, Monsters, Loggers, and Modern Manufacturing techniques?

National Geographic and New Scientist aren't credible sources either. New Scientist fills a niche in which academic honesty is highly encouraged - but they've been accused multiple times of peddling "Scientific Pornography" due to their sensationalism and rampant speculation. National Geographic has made such mistakes as doing exposes on the Acheoraptor "discovery" before the peer-review process. It was touted as a major find, being a "missing link" between dinosaurs and birds. Peer review revealed the fraud for what it was, yet many people who think "Nat Geo" speaks for science and is a credible source shows the "foolishness of scientists".

What's interesting about the latter case, is that Acheoraptor contained the fossils of a previously undiscovered dinosaur called Micro-raptor which turned out to be an even better example of evolution and missing link than Acheoraptor ever could have been.

So no... please don't mistake "The History Channel" for a credible source. Consider them more an inspiration, if you will, to pick up on a subject you may have previously been unaware of and do the appropriate research from actual reputable sources.

Yeah its something that they want secret, I havent seen them do this before the 8 pm show is only a hr long so why they dont have a listing for the 2hr block after that is beyond me and whatever this show is will be from 9 til 11 pm.

"A Global Event"

"Witness the Most Important Find in 44 Million Years"

Sounds archaeological to me.

I looked at the History Channel's website and found nothing good.

Here is their schedule for May 25, 2009:

Here is another section called 'This Day in History'
(Star Wars opens on that day)

if it is something archaeological, i hope it's better than the Simcha Jacobovici's special they hyped up a few years ago on finding Jesus' and his families' tombs/ossuaries in some museum.

I agree. The 'credible' part was somewhat sarcastic, although I think your average television viewer believes everything on that channel, Discovery, TLC, etc.

I remember a few years ago when 60 minutes wanted to show how dangerous a side gas tank in a pick up was. They filmed for days, but could not get one to blow up or catch fire, so they finally put a charge near the filler neck to initiate the explosion. They aired it, and addressed the danger like that could happen to anyone. They got exposed, and I don't know if there was a lawsuit, but I have never trusted them since then.

I wish I had my own network........wait a minute, ATS could sponsor a cable show!!! Mod's, run that idea up the chain of command. We can do a cable news show fact checking all the other "reality" or science shows from the week! What great fun taking the faker's to task just like we do on the forums.

Here are the first few dates displayed and their signifigance...

January 28, 1986 - Challenger Disaster
March 4, 1933 - FDR Inauguration (NewDeal)
November 22, 1963 - JFK Assassination
July 20, 1969 - Apollo 11 Astronauts arrive at moon
November 4, 2008 - Barack Obama Election

Hmmm, I'm hoping I can watch this episode online. But I'm sure the posters on this forum wouldn't mind to discuss this anyway.

Ummmmmm we did in My school...it was when we covered the Industrial Revolution that we learned about modern manufactoring machines and techniques...maybe this is why NJ Is one of the top educational states??? We also covered the logging bit too, when we learned about that part of US history. Did you even graduate?

I have seen that commercial as well, and I am assuming it is some ground-breaking program they will air on that date. That said, I am consistently disappointed in what they think is ground-breaking, so don't be too excited. They typically ramp up an hour long program, giving fleeting glimpses of some discovery only to say how no conclusion can be reached and it will require more study, tune in next time.

Probably a program disclosing aliens and the mountains of proof for 55 minutes, just to pull the plug during the last 5!


i agree...that's why i stopped watching UFO HUNTERS. they show some interesting material...but never follow up on that. they then move on to something else like showing for the thousandth time old ufo footage and interviews. they conclude the show by saying no conclusion can be reached. this show is for the dumb*ss crowd with no critical thinking skills.
the one or two pieces of "WOW" is simply dismissed with "that needs further study" and they move on to crap that makes up the bulk of the show.

if at the beginning of the show they all stood around with their index fingers firmly attached to their chins, with their eyes looking up to the sky and said ...hhhhhmmmmmm, i wonder, hhhhmmmmm, they could encapsulate the whole hour long show.

yes. .. ufo hunters is a good show, the problem is that I think they cannot investigate more in a subject ... I dont know if that is not good for the show, or if its not good for HC ...

If you view the schedule in full day view
www.history.com...

I don't think it is decoding the past.
I think it is either:
The Real West: The Johnson County War.

The bloody saga of the battle between the cattle barons and the homesteaders that raged in Wyoming in 1892. The cattle ranchers went on a rampage and hired mercenaries to kill anyone who stood in their way before the army was called in to restore order.


Almost comparable to the populus' rage now-a-days
or
THC Classroom: Egypt: Engineering an Empire, Part 1

Twenty-five hundred years before the reign of Julius Caesar, the ancient Egyptians were deftly harnessing the power of engineering on an unprecedented scale. Egyptian temples, fortresses, pyramids and palaces forever redefined the limits of architectural possibility. They also served as a warning to all of Egypt's enemies-that the world's most advanced civilization could accomplish anything. This two-part special uses cinematic recreations and cutting-edge CGI to profile the greatest engineering achievements of ancient Egypt, and the pharaohs and architects who were behind them.


which attempts to unravel all of the ancient engineering feats and uses cutting edge CGI as a viewing tool.

Nostradamis is a third rate false prophet.

Here is another, yet different, schedule for the History Channel. It shows that Monday is the start, yet again, of Armageddon week, with another 2012 program on at 9.

Although, I must agree that "the most important find" does sound archeological, perhaps "the missing link".

Not too sure how it fits in with Armageddon week though.

no ... it should be decoding the past

www.history.com...

if this is the show ... well ... this would be very dissapointing

well ... if you guys look into the schedule

www.history.com...

for the day ... you will see...that decoding the past is 8 PM ... and it takes 1 hour for this show ... so, there is a 2 hour missing ... between this and the next show ...


=so, maybe there is something else

Well, my first guess, if it is something due to happen that day, would be an Ice Age that starts suddenly..not too sudden, its been freezing up North and it hardly feels like Summer is coming!

My 2 cents

I think the clue here is
'44 million years".
