Which channel are y’all talking about, History or History2
There needs to be a differentiation between The History Channel and History2. The History Channel started out as a source for history, be it American, European, Asian, Australian, or African. My friend used to call it the “Hitler Channel”. It did bring out a lot of Egypt and ancient sites, pyramids and symbols. It included evidence that archaeologists say may not be of this world, but so what? Everything doesn’t have to agree with the Flat-Earth Society. Some of us don’t adhere to just what we read in one book. Some of us believe that humans aren’t the only intelligent life God created.
Anyway, now The History Channel digressed into The Reality Show Channel, which has nothing to do with history and most of "reality" seems to be scripted. Of course, you can’t just script an alligator bite, but you can script a truck breakdown on an ice road or people arguing. I have quit watching that channel because of its ridiculous unreality “reality” shows. It seems to intentionally portray Southerners in a bad light. We aren’t all moon-shining, coon-hunting, snaggle-toothed illiterates bent on making TV money. Nor do all Americans chase Big Foot.
History2 seems to have taken over the archeological shows that started out with digs in historical places, and they present new ideas and evidence that goes against the grain of fundamentalist religions and the Flat-Earth Society. I think that these shows became so popular that, at some point, they have introduced sensationalism in them. I personally don't like the ghost-hunting stuff and I think they've run UFOs into the ground. But there is a lot of truth to many of their shows, and I watch them with an open mind.
