Most of us know that there is a difference between written history and actual history as it happened. Oftentimes, it is a significant difference.
History, as many know, can be a very valid indicator of how and why things are as they are, not to mention it can give us good insight into the
future. Many conspiracies rely heavily on historical context and it can often mean the difference between a far-fetched theory and a much more
If we can understand history as it actually happened, then we have a viable roadmap of not only things to come, but also things that are happening in
the here and now.
It is because of these reasons that I think ATS and the members herein could greatly benefit from either a forum dedicated to history or historical
debate. ATS members do a superb job of cutting through the clatter on important issues from all realms of alternative topics, which is why I would
love to see that same vigor applied to dismantling the history spoon-fed to us so that we can reconstruct the past as it actually played out and
ultimately benefit from the information gleamed, as well as apply this knowledge to the other topics already discussed.
Is this a viable option, to have a historical forum here on ATS?
