Oh Cha0s I didnt say "we shouldnt pay attention to those", I said "I" dont pay much attention
. Although I am open minded, maybe I'm too
biased by my personal and academic knowledge and I'm letting it get in between but like I said, unless we get absolute proof, the past is nothing but
a big theory that we continue to rebuild, the best we can, piece by piece... and those pieces dont come in a specific order. Sometimes you find
something you have no idea about and only after you discover the "link".
But this is "my" vision on the subject and should not, by all means, influence your opinion or others alike.
True. People sometimes see what they want to see, thats true, even for a researcher. Sometimes we just want to find "THAT" piece of the puzzle and
we get clouded by our own personal quests - we're not immune either - and those "many explanations" are mainly theories cause in fact, unless you
have a true record, thats pretty much everything you can do (not talking of course of simple "mundane" stuff like pottery, arrow heads or the venus
of willendorf - I just brought the venus up cause you're a teacher and every single art teacher loves to talk about it and since I heard so damn much
about that fat lady I thought I could have my revenge at a art history teacher
Now on a more serious note, those "airplanes" are really out of context... I mean, as a fellow historian, specially a art historian what is your
opinion on those.
And like you, and I know what you feel, the pre-historic cave paintings are the ones which I cant even draw a theory... they're really something.
