We have asked Open AI a question: Are there valid reasons to doubt world history as taught in school and university? The AI answered yes; there are such reasons: 1. Incomplete or biased narratives. The history we learn is often shaped by the biases of those who write it. It is inevitable that individuals, groups, and nations will interpret history in their favor, emphasizing their achievements and downplaying their failures. This leads to incomplete and biased narratives that can overlook or delegitimize the experiences of other groups. 2. The role of power and politics. Historical knowledge can be manipulated to establish power and legitimize political ideologies. This means that the history we are taught can be shaped to reinforce the status quo and political agendas, excluding alternative perspectives or dissenting voices. 3. Limited, partial, or false information. The historical evidence is incomplete, and it is impossible to have a full picture of the past. Furthermore, historical documents could be falsified, destroyed, or purposely ignored, resulting in a limited or false representation of the past. 4. Interpretation of evidence. The interpretation of historical evidence is subjective and can be contested, leading to differences in the understanding of the same events. In conclusion, the AI said there are valid reasons for doubting world history as taught in schools and universities. Critics can argue that history is incomplete, biased, manipulated, and subject to interpretation, leading to limitations in our understanding of the past. Long before the AI, a group of mathematicians headed by Anatoly T. Fomenko reached the same conclusion and started, in 1972, the elaboration of the theory of New Chronology following the discovery by the American astrophysicist Robert Russel Newton of an important parameter D" in the Crazy Earth-Moon telluric system. U.S. research of earth-moon mechanics by the late NASA astrophysicist Robert Russel Newton led mathematicians to a breakthrough in the chronology of world history. The timeline of civilization based on only irrefutably dated events and artifacts shrinks drastically to 1,000 years. Warning: The New Chronology theory of Dr. Fomenko and team has been universally rejected by the non-scientist mainstream scholars of history, who branded it not only as pseudo-historic but also as pseudoscience! As Dr. Fomenko blows consensual world history to smithereens, he successfully removes a crucial cornerstone of chronology from underneath the otherwise impeccable edifice of World History. Saint Augustine was quite prescient when he said: "Be wary of mathematicians, particularly when they speak the truth." Henry Ford once said: "History is more or less bunk!" Prominent mathematician Anatoly Fomenko not only proved it for a fact but, as a true scientist, tried to upgrade it into rocket science. The authors claim that the civilization of homo sapiens species is barely 1000 years old and present the readers of Volume VIII with new irrefutable results of the autopsy of the consensual world history made with the toolbox of the new chronology, a.k.a. statistics, astronomy, exact sciences, and logic. Better yet, the authors have added the Bible to their toolbox with results confirming the theory of New Chronology to the utmost.
The present volume contains a fully improved, cross-checked bibliography.
