Today I have been talking to my friends, and some history subjects came up. Now, normally it’s fairly irrelevant when it comes to debating whether or not some ruler or war leader was in the right or wrong, fact is, it’s history. We got on the subject of people and kill counts in wars. Even though many are recorded for generals or warlords, my friends tried to tell me that there is no proof. Apparently, these scholars who followed these guys and counted their kills, didn’t actually do their job. Their argument was that History means nothing. It’s just written on paper and it’s whether or not you choose to believe it. I wish I could say I was getting trolled, but I wasn’t. I couldn’t believe I associated people who are this stupid. They don’t believe recordings to be true, based upon no physical evidence. The whole point of writing shit down on paper, is so it’s recorded and be looked at upon in the future!
I wish it just stopped there, they proceeded to try and argue that you don’t need to learn history, because it has no meaning in the modern world. Now, I don’t need to even explain how fucking dumb people are if they truly believe this.
TL;DR Friends are dumb as bricks
So, anyone else have any conversations with friends that made you dumbfounded?
