Fabrication of History

Life at the farm has returned to normal and one startling observation made was the ease with which progressives or lefties, collectivists, etc, fabricate “history”.  I personally experienced it this Christmas when, in total absence of any evidence, a looneyport insisted some conclusion fabricated from whole cloth was actually true.  It wasn’t and there was also no diplomatic retreat either from the looneyport’s position. In fact there was a total lack of awareness on the looneyport’s part that anything that was stated was false.

These are of the eyebrows raised type of experiences for it leads to the, not wholly unreasonable, suspicion that much of history that the academic looneyports write might also be partially made from whole cloth.

This situation is not new either since the global media itself is often dominated by the phenomenon of “fake news”. And academically this has been demonstrated by the book trilogy “The Fabrication of Aboriginal History” by Keith Windschuttle.

This leads to the disquieting observation that if the political left, or religious if we want to be catholic about it, are so disposed to fabricating reality and thus history, how much credence can anyone assume for any historical narrative? Only if the narrative has a physical counterpart in the archaeological or geological stratigraphy; aka the Heinsohn Method.

So when a reader comments on Tim Cullen’s Malagabay website and links to a map produced during the 15th century CE showing a vastly different topography for Europe than what is assumed today, I have to stop and review the evidence.

What evidence is there that the Little Ice Age (LIA) was not little but a lot larger?

  • The LIA was associated with Ted Bryant’s “tsunami” deposits around Australia.
  • The LIA was associated with the extinction of the New Zealand Moa

Why did British Admiralty send Captain James Cook on a task of observing the transit of Venus during the 18th century CE?

If the LIA was such a horrible event, why did it coincide with the Renaissance in Europe? Or was the narrative of that period of renewal fabricated as well?

And what type of mind is it that believes its fabrication from whole cloth is real?

Put less diplomatically, why do the religious or faithful assume they are so, dogmatically, right?

I’ve always had the nagging impression many Australian aboriginal narratives were describing the immediate past and now seem linked to the Little Ice Age. Which suggests the present day topography was only recently formed during the LIA.

More on this to follow but do read Jef Demolder’s intriguing information. His website is not in English, by the way,

    There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

    • The fifth dimension? Given physical reality is 3 dimensions, and more than this are thus imaginals and aptly described as The Matrix. Denizens of the Matric seem to live in various levels in the matrix labyrinth, the deepest of which host the most devout. They can be recognised by incessant head bobbing during prayer and holy devotions. They also rock rhythmically when in the act of recitation. They require a constant supply of blue pills, or equivalents, to remain calm in the Matrix.

      Occasionally the Matrix denizens wander accidentally into reality and experience serious cognitive dissonance, among other psychological stresses. Their gut response is to assault the unwanted messengers who, if they don’t comply with the Matrix denizen’s dictates, are usually killed off.

      Matrix denizens also assume a socially elevated position based on the perfection they have in The Matrix. These Matrix Denizens can be identified from their utterances because they invariably inform the masses that they, the Matrix Denizens, are chosen, saved or holy and in communion with their superior inner guidance. If you find the behaviour of a Matrix Denizen offensive or asocial, don’t bother telling them as they are psychologically quite deaf, or hearing challenged as they say these days.

      The only rational response to the Matrix Denizens is to treat them like a spooked herd of African wildebeest, for in the absence of explanatory written material, their behaviour out of the Matrix is no different to the wildebeests when spooked.

      Spooking Matrix Denizens includes rattling their cages (in a metaphorical sense), or questioning their fairy tales.

    Louis, I have just added a new post with a new map,
    https://jefdemolder.blogspot.be/2018/01/holland-aangespoeld-of-verplaatst.html
    This time the map is from 1561. Holland is already appearing at its actual place, but as a set of islands. Does that mean that the catastrophe and the geological changes happened between 1493 and 1561 Anno Domini? Not necessary. I’m not yet ready about that, but possibly “1493” and ‘1561″ belong to another era than ours.

    • Thanks Jef,

      This latest map seems to match the current era and the previous one an earlier time? I’ll do a Yoda and contemplate on this I will 🙂 Holland seems to be based on Pleistocene deposits so the two maps cover different times. Grist for the mill.
