for you it’s the same thing if you ask someone, “I’m interested
in your personality” or “I’m interested in your
methodology”?!? But first, you point out, “sorry, not interested
in your theses themselves”.
That’s the one of the most stupidest things I’ve ever heard
on the internet!
Seriously, I never heard such a childish, and
ignorant comment from anyone regarding this issue. The only thing
you just did, was try to justify your
ignorance, everyone can see that. Thank you for making my day, you really
make me laugh with that one… just keep up the good work, please.
About Herodotus – who
said I don’t respect him? Your remark about him being the father of history was
just thrown out there, like some appeal to authority, as if it’s supposed to
mean something, so I just threw a counter-remark. After all, he is regarded as both and a serious historian should try to examine and present all sides, should he not? Besides, wasn’t it Aristotle (since we’re throwing ancient Greek names around) who said “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it”?
Anyway, the whole Herodotus thing is pointless, because he’s a source, not a
What you wrote above just shows further your lack of knowledge on various subjects of which you try to seem knowledgeable, and just proves how irrational and
uneducated you are. It’s not my “appeal to authority”, it’s widely accepted among historians, philologists, philosophers etc., that Herodotus is the father of history. Without
Herodotus we wouldn’t have had a historical starting point or know much about
the ancient world. How the West understands history is based on his works,
everyone knows that (except you). Without Herodotus, we might know as
little about the Persian Wars as Troy…
Yes, Herodotus’ works contain inaccuracies, but still, without Herodotus, we wouldn’t know
as much as we do about a pivotal period in history. He gives us the story of
Leonidas and the 300 Spartans, the formation of the world’s first democracy at
Athens, and a lot more.
P.S. As I said before, It’s a well known fact
that significant portion of the information he provided was later confirmed
by historians and archaeologists. The sad truth is that with every
reply, you’re embarrassing yourself and you prove just how uneducated you are.
