I don't understand what this post means so I am going to do both sides of it.

Things that did happen in history: Propaganda in dictatorships such as Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Stalin's cult of personality is a perfect example where the Russian people were lied and brainwashed to the point where there were big crowds that praised Stalin at his funeral when he was a brutal dictator and he was praised like a god-like figure very similar to how North Korea is brainwashing its people by saying the Kim dictators invented everything through the Cheeseburger to controlling the weather.

Things that never happened in history: Christopher Columbus discovered America. There were earlier known sightings of the New World by Europeans with Leif Erikson being a perfect example and it is even rumored that the French could of landed in the New World in 1488 which is 4 years before Columbus. There were even earlier sightings than Leif Erikson it is even rumored an Irish monk could of discovered America as early as the 6th century.

^^^^^^
The Irish monk story does not appear anywhere except a historical marker at Dauphin Island, Alabama, and is based on a couple of cognates in Gaelic and Indian languages.

Please don't ask us to believe the American accounts of Naziism and Communism were free of propaganda.

Yet we still continue celebrating this sham
War history is even more inaccurate, as it is almost always written by the winning side.

I believe it was more of the other way around. The Bolsheviks were Marxists and did not believe in "great men." However, most Russians were not Marxists and were used to being ruled by the Tsar,;Lenin and later Stalin were merely the new Tsars, so to speak. They were rather uneasy about having their "personality cults," but had found them useful for the time-being since the Russians needed to have some great Tsar.

You cannot say that America was not discovered until Whites discovered it. You have First Nation people that lived here thousands of years before that event of white discovery ever occurred!!

Don't be silly. It's lke saying the neanderthals discovered England. "The World" is a civilization continuum, that is unbroken for over 2,000 years. The stewards and carriers of that civilization (of which you are an inextricable part) irst embraced America into into its influence in 1492, with the arrival of Columbus, and the evolution of America has since been an unwavering line..

Yeah right smart guy you are so funny , the reason why Asians and White\European\Caucasian have such advanced technology is the (Neanderthals) black sub-Saharan Africans do not have any (Neanderthal DNA).

Philosophies age a little better.
I agree. Religion is the greatest lie ever.
