I’m a big history buff especially war history that is but I enjoy history in general. American history, war history, western history I love it so when the History channel came about I was enthused to say the least. So a little history of the History channel, from the conception the History channel was great, it had great war history and good American history. I guess the folks in charged felt a narrator was not enough so maybe try some shows that had actors or reenactments. The channel was doing well enough so a new History channel was conserved called the History channel 2 or H2 and it was designed to house the world history programming while the History channel was to deal with American history in general.
I guess it was inevitable but here came the reality shows with a big success for the History channel was Pawn Stars and it still is a big winner today. Ice Road Truckers, Axe Men and the numerous spin offs of Pawn Stars the once informative History channel became a den of reality programming with a few historical programs like modern marvels thrown in the mid mornings and mid afternoons the time when no one watches TV because we are at work; the history channel became “the watch my cool job channel”. Seriously I lived in a logging town and logging companies do not compete against each other like AX men , no one cares they just want trees for money.
Of course since H2 had less of a following it too needed to invest into scripted reality but unlike the History channel H2 became a propaganda channel of junk science and revisionist history. Now why would I make that statement well just look at the programming that H2 offers.
Ancient Aliens: The biggest offender it would be one thing if the program was about UFOlogy but it’s not. It takes everything that cannot not explained by science and even things that can be and chalks it up to it all can be explained by Aliens because god forbid that maybe there is a God that created something.
America Unearthed: Here Scott Wolter a “forensic geologist” whatever that is tries to rewrite history. Even when all the evidence points to one conclusion if it was not Scott’s conclusion then it maybe history is wrong. Basically Scott is trying to rewrite history even though evidence and facts won’t support his theories.
The Universe: Not a show to enjoy if you believe in creation that’s for sure. You name it big bang catastrophic events all theories that cannot be proven and that is fine but if you’re going to claim your being historical can we maybe look at another view of history like biblical science for another view and just a thought it’s theory not fact. Oh my we just don’t know how it happened but I know because I’m a scientist
These are the biggest offenders that try and spread their propaganda to the viewers. No longer are we to look at the common man and his common sense, now we must rely on experts like Scott Wolter try and convince us that Davy Crockett did not die at the Alamo. We cannot expect to think maybe there is an intelligent design because only Aliens could have this kind of technology but of course we never answer the big question where did the aliens come from and where did they get the technology thanks for clearing up those waters for us Giorgio. If science has not thought of it then it cannot exist or it could not happen or be created by something other than man or chance.
What once was a good educational network has now turned into a dumb downed scripted reality based propaganda programming. They don’t want us to use common sense or thought of another way or idea just believe them because they are the experts or so says their certificate of authenticity. H2 is now a network of junk science and history that can be revised if it gets ratings and that is completely sad.
