Scientists are sometimes mocked by comedians at their poor knowledge of human history.
I actually couldn’t watch Neil DeGrasse Tyson anymore after he gave a history of religion that made me shake my head like, “what? what!? WHAT!?” – he’s not well versed and for someone so important to so many people, I really wish he’d get an historian on his team.
Then again, I forget that i’m well versed in history and think everybody should be and should cut him some slack. Actually no, I’m not that well versed. There’s a whole lotta stuff I don’t know much about, just broad overviews really…. and I’m disappointed in my low knowledge of South America, Korea, China, and many other places.
