-_- TV programmes again. Oh yes, I'll trust their "surprising revelation about the origin of man" completely.
it would be nice if you gave more then a criticism of his source You're clever Merlkir and you know what your talking about, unlike me, actually put something on the table to counter his point or wait until someone, probably me, gets out of school and has the time to watch video.
Same goes to you MadVader, I know this thread is easy to troll (ive done it a few times) but its also a exercise in research, logic, and understanding.
Yes ancalimon has ridicules posts that are laughable to history buffs, but I'm learning things here. maybe you will too.
Examples: Who first settled Moscow, I now know. Roman mining techniques, I never considered that they could get ore from in the water table. I didn't even think that pants could have come from the 'barbaric' celts, and now i know the romans adopted 2 different styles from them.
if your going to criticize his sources, do it right, tell him why PBS isn't a good one. if your going to troll, point out holes in his logic.
I view everything ancalimon posts as being crazy and nationalistic, but that doesn't mean I can't learn from researching his theories. He might even stumble across a gem of knowledge that's been over looked, misinterpret it to favor the Turks i suspect, but you will never know simply because you were busy trolling the post.
EDIT: and now I shall be ridiculed for defending ancalimon, and admitting that i had now idea about celts and pants.
