So, if I am to fit in to this broad academic world I’ve put myself back in (why I did so isn’t readily coming to mind at the moment), I must toss aside a number of antiquated notions I possess. Among them are:
1. Absolute Truth exists
2. God exists
3. Marx was an idiot
4. There is, in fact, such a thing as the “right answer”
5. Hegel was an idiot
It turns out, real academes are firmly of the opinion that no one can have a firm opinion about history, because no one can look at history objectively. This much, I agree with—one cannot conduct a totally unbiased survey of the past. However, I got no issues with deciding that the Judeo-Christian survey is the best one. My professors would beg to differ.
