I haven’t been the same since I read the remarks of a certain college professor, who said students could acquire deep insights into history without having to learn any facts of history.

And here I thought Professor I.B. Loony was just a satirical buffoon.

Solving the Riddles of Ancient History: A Whole New Approach

I do remember, back in the 1990s (or was it the 80s?), an academic fad for “intuiting” things–that is, not bothering to research a subject, but just making it all up as one went along. I knew professors who actually spoke of “intuiting” as a substitute for factual knowledge.

Our culture rot has deep roots.

  1. Frankly , one cannot expect those whose whole agenda is based upon lies to look cordially upon research that involves factual information! Facts tend to throw off fiction and as fiction is what is desired, why would such people want actual research?

  2. Amazing. I am certainly thankful that this approach did not take place during my school days. Ancient history, and in fact all history was one of my favorite subjects.
