How do we know History?
“This site is dedicated to be a repository for the numerous “out-of-place” artifacts that have been discovered…If taken seriously, these artifacts would destroy several fundamental theories in the realms of evolutionary science, geology, modern dating, and more. In the end analysis, it is clear that our understanding of and theories about history and evolution is wrong. The question is when mainstream science will admit it.” ~Forbidden History
Cliches are often true aren’t they? Short snippets of words to describe some element of reality that most people tend to agree with under any circumstance. The one I thought about while pondering where to start with this chapter was the one that goes like this; “Those who forget history, often repeat it.” But what if the history we are forgetting is far more vast than simply a teenager who might be ignorant of the holocaust? And what if the history we are going to repeat have dire implications for the world at large?
Jesus Christ said in Matthew 24:37, “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” This passage will become more important as we uncover the supernatural implications of the words uttered by our Lord Jesus, but for now, consider the thought that there was a history in the antediluvian, or pre-flood world that are systematically denied by the established sciences, and forgotten at large by the body of Christ.
Through most of time, “history” was passed down through word of mouth, stories, myths, books, and other limited resources highly susceptible to corruption, change, or manipulation. Once modern science entered the conversation in the last century, they took the wheel as the authority in describing history in the academic milieu.
Science operates on the observation of evidence. However, I believe that there are two kinds of evidence. Material and immaterial. Material evidence can be ancient pottery, clothing, ruins, even the bones of a once living human being or animal from way long ago. Basically, they’re things that can be measured, weighed, and observed in the physical spectrum. While investigating these resources could tell us a great deal about a given ancient culture, it cannot give us any insight into the immaterial history. When I say immaterial, I mean the various emotions, thoughts and experiences of those who were actually there to experience the ancient past. These things are left to speculation and are often fabricated by those who investigate the material evidence.
Here is an example. Let’s say my wife and I go to Starbucks to have a cup of coffee. We walk in, order our coffee, sit down at one of those IKEA bought contemporary couches, and have a conversation. When we finish our coffee, we both leave our cups on the table and walk out. If an investigator on that same day wanted to know whether or not my wife and I had been at Starbucks, they can certainly figure it out without much work. Besides, they write your names on those cups now don’t they? But, if the investigator wanted to know what my wife and I were talking about, that would be a little bit harder. He would have to rely on secondhand information from someone who may have been there and heard a few snippets of the conversation. And let’s say the investigator was trying to uncover not just what we might have talked about, but our thoughts and emotions during that conversation. Good luck. Certainly we act out our emotions with our gestures and facial expressions, but unless they had a chip in our brains (more on that later in the book), you would have no idea what our emotional experiences were, let alone our thoughts.
So in light of understanding this fact, we have to look at history as we know it with a grain of salt don’t we? How could you say you know everything about a certain period of the past when you weren’t there? The legends, myths, folklore, stories and ancient writings are a mere fragment of the actual reality that may or may not have occurred in the distant past. Even if you are majoring in History at a prestigious University, all you would really know is what the establishment will feed you as “history”. Yes it would give you more knowledge about the past than your average person who doesn’t study history, nevertheless, your knowledge would be limited and even shaped by what is written and recorded. Another Cliche comes to mind; “Those who win wars, write their history.”
But it seems like websites like Forbidden History (forbiddenhistory.info) and many others going against the grain are trying to show that there are even physical artifacts that don’t fit the proper paradigm of the established sciences. Whether it be a huge pyramid structure 300 feet underwater off the coast of Florida,  or the Dashka Stone, which allegedly shows an aerial view of the region along with an unknown form of language , or a petrified footprint that the Smithsonian deemed hundreds of millions of years old , the earth itself is teeming with artifacts that don’t fit the paradigm of science as presented in all levels of our education system.
But how could this be? Why would the establishment lie to us? For what purpose and for what ends? These are legitimate questions and are worth investigating. The bottom line is that history is not what we read in the history text books. It is not simply found in the artifacts that fit or don’t fit the establishment. I believe they have a supernatural undercurrent that is largely ignored by the not only the main stream populous but the body of Christ at large.
