I am a documentary film maker and I believe that modern day accepted version of history is faith based nonsense religion. It is very hard to almost impossible to predict what happened long ago in the past even as late as a few decades ago historical accounts are mostly assumptions and wild guesses. To further illustrate my point I made a documentary about world war II that shows it through an alternative lens yet remains as accurate as any other modern day counter part even though the accounts are radically different. For all we know History played out completely differently then we realize and in all likely hood it did.

Really? You've got some sort of evidence that JFK was elected and inaugurated 18 years prior to when other accounts (and living peoples' memories) say he was?

I have a little trouble trusting the alleged accuracy of someone who includes extra spaces in perfectly good single words (and even people's names).

trustyoursources. So, in Deep Space Nine, which I'm binge watching now, there are entities that live in the wormhole who have no concept of past, present and future. In the book Slaughterhouse Five, Vonnegut creates a charictor who is unstuck in time, moving back and forth through his life in a seamless series of significant events in his life, including his death. So in a way I can appreciate your science-fiction version of history because it's kind of a fun idea. But the key word here is "fiction." You have created a work of fiction and not an alternative view of history. What is the apparatus that propels you back and forth through time tying events together that couldn't have happened the way your "documentary" says it does? Kennedy was a PT boat captain during the war, for example and FDR and then Truman were the presidents. That's not speculation, so your film does not remain "as accurate as any other modern day counter part even though the accounts are radically different." I agree that your account is radically different. It's a work of fiction. It should be labeled that way.

If you are going to insist that your version of history is as valid as any other, we're going to have a problem.


And welcome to SFN.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?
