Was the Civil War... a lie?
The American Civil War was relatively low on my list of things to eventually inquiry... that was until I found out in the Southern US you'll be sent to prison for up to 3 years for merely questioning the Civil War. That sent the alarm and caused me to wave the red flags in my brain, surely something as 'irrefutable' as the Civil War didn't warrant such a penalty?

I had always been worried about how little scientific evidence there was to support the Civil War, I mean something that would really bind the Civil War actually happening. Like testing for lead bullets in the supposed forts... eventually one scientist did test for lead bullets. Keeping it secret to avoid tampering with, the result was that no traces of lead bullets were found except for in a small fort. Oh yes, there were forts, used to house limes brought into the camps to kill smells and prevent epidemics of scurvy.

Another interesting thing about the Civil War is that they claimed that the bodies of those 'shot' were buried in graves, which they said it took about 20 minutes to fully bury the body. When in reality it takes a few HOURS to do it with a modern shovel... this was 150 years ago.

The soldiers even in the Civil War story were originally going to be deported from Northern US. The only question was where? The answer is relatively simple, the soldiers would've been deported to Louisiana once the North conquered it. But they never did conquer the then Southern controlled state, and so the soldiers remained in the camps so close to a Yankee movement... but the Southern state of Louisiana DID come to fruition despite the North's failure to deport them. The reason being that the North actually lied about deporting Southerners and actually mass murdered them in the forts, and now all these Southerners without home nor country needed a new place to go.

The problem with that is now the ENTIRE state of Louisiana DEPENDS on people believing in the Civil War for it's very existence. Without it, the support for their state would be severely undermined (and the U.S. gives tons of support for Louisiana). So in order to silence dissent, they made it illegal to question the Civil War. They bribed, or threatened the US I don't know how they did it, to make it illegal. Thank goodness Northerners value their freedoms so much... otherwise I would be in jail right now.

For not only is questioning the Civil War illegal in the South, but denying it ever happened is also illegal. Your thoughts on this?

Well, I mean, if it's a civil war then I want proof that the soldiers on both sides were polite to each other. Otherwise it didn't happen. No politeness, no war. As simple as that.

RE: Was the Civil War... a lie?
Thank you for bringing this to light. I never considered this before but it makes sense.

I've often wondered why, when driving through the South, one can see so many flags with the stars and bars flying everywhere. It is a well known fact that throughout History, not a single conquered nation has ever been allowed to continue to fly their colors. It's obvious a war never happened or these flags would be considered sedition and anyone flying one would be shot on sight.

RE: Was the Civil War... a lie?
The funny thing is that questioning certain things pertaining to the Civil War is one of the next things on my to do list, particularly with why and how the conflict started, and the Union as a whole.

In fact the Civil War was one of the reasons why I listed history that I can't trust as long as 200 years ago, which you seem to have ridiculed a bit. But I don't think the problems started in the Civil War, I think it goes back further, slavery didn't really have much to do with the war it was more of policies among other things. I want to learn what those 'other things' were.

Well at least you won't have to waste time coming to a conclusion AFTER you've done all that research!

Nobody says (or should say) the Civil War was just because of slavery. Now please, go away. You hurt my eyes. Every time you speak, a baby develops pneumonia and dies.

Learn to trust the books, because sometimes those PhDs are smarter than you.

I'm still looking into the events leading up to World War II and a slight time scale after the end of the second World War. So it's not going to be any time soon, research is best not rushed.

Shall I start with the Quran? There's reasons why I'm skeptical about history. Don't just believe in things just because it's in a book, or a history book for that matter.

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.” - A dead person

Was Muhammad an owner of a PhD?

Don't know, he wasn't the one who wrote the Quran. The person who did write the Quran was a scholar though, the equivalent to our modern day PhDer's.
