Alternative History
« on: March 15, 2017, 10:52:21 AM »
I am a documentary film maker and I believe that modern day accepted version of history is faith based nonsense religion. It is very hard to almost impossible to predict what happened long ago in the past even as late as a few decades ago historical accounts are mostly assumptions and wild guesses. To further illustrate my point I made a documentary about world war II that shows it through an alternative lens yet remains as accurate as any other modern day counter part even though the accounts are radically different. For all we know History played out completely differently then we realize and in all likely hood it did.

Is that a joke? Modelled after Trump's "alternate facts"?

Certainly just as confusing to me,

No its not a joke History is not cut and dry the "official story" is riddled with holes this is just a different take on what happened.

It's clear that you didn't bother to read our rules before you posted here, trustyoursources. Often in such a case, the staff of this site will simply remove the spam. Since your nonsense video may provide a minimal amount of amusement for members of this site who are desperate for such things, the link has merely been disabled.

People are still alive who lived through the period you've depicted. I know one of them personally--somebody who was an adult at the time and who would find your "revisionism" completely absurd. Perhaps your intent is comedic. If so, it falls flat but maybe there are people out there who like that sort of thing. Best of luck.

For those who would like to marvel at a ham-handed attempt to re-write history, paste the URL for the video into your browser's address bar and remove the asterisks.

Thanks for not out right banning me and allowing me to plead my case publicly. Having said that you offer no actual argument to the points that I have made. Since I still have my voice I will not be shy to use it.

Thats just a witty title I came up with once I decided to publish my first documentary. Hopefully there are more to come.

It's still a legitimate question. What sources, if any, have you used to create your mockumentary? As far as I can tell it was pulled straight from your arse. Would you dispute that statement?

Answer Recusant's question please.
State your sources.
