04/27/2002 Entry: "brand new old stuff"

I spent most of the day finishing up a freelance job with The Learning Channel and The History Channel blasting in the background. Those are really some of the best channels available. I could watch them for hours. Who am I kidding, I DO watch them for hours. Anyway, today was full of things like this guy trying to proove that ancient history people in peru had figured out how to make planes and fly, another guy talking about many of the accounts in the Old Testament actually refering to aliens, and then lots of stuff on Egypt and the new things they are discovering.

I find that stuff so interesting, probably because it's so uncharted. I don't know if your schools were anything like mine, but when we learned about Egypt it was presented as "this is the 100% fact, we know everything there is to know and here it is". There was no mention that "well, we might not know everything, were trying to figure it out" no mention of "theres this giant area where we've never been able to dig in before that probably has tons of info" or anything like that. It was all locked down. If it had been said that "hey, we're still trying to figure all this out" i think a lot more people would have been into it.

As much as I was always into science, that is the part that bugged me the most. People were so unwilling to say "this is what I THINK is going on" it was always "this is it. Case closed". Until the next guy came along and prooved the first guy wrong. Then the first guy melted away and the second guy played king of all the info. Repeat.
