History cannot be proven, it is written by the victors, the victors sometimes lie to make themselves look better in their own eyes. You cannot know a thing for certain unless you yourself witnessed it, or were presented certain proof of it. How can we know anything we learned in history class it true? How do we know it is not just a complete Hoax perpetrated by top level government officials or conspiring secret society members to make people feel/think a certain way?
I only recently (maybe a year or so) came to this realization, and it saddens me greatly. I have a proclivity towards historical studies and have always enjoyed and put great meaning into it. I firmly believe history repeats itself, but we cannot know the true history of events because we were not there to experience them ourselves.
This is partly why i am going to Be an archaeologist, because how can evidence lie?
Am i wrong? if u believe so, How?
Do any of you have advice to comfort me about this? like maybe a secret history written by INTs who just sat back an observed?
Particular Historical Events that you find Suspicious or Questionable?
Any examples of History being proven false? (i know there are some, cuz otherwise i wouldnt have heard, "so and so rewrote the pages of history" so many times in my life.
