“History: Fiction or Science?” series of 26 books is the most explosive tractate on history ever written proving irrefutably that the timeline of the civilization that takes into account only the irrefutably dated non-contradictory events and artifacts barely exceeds 1000 years!
The Classical Age was followed by many centuries of Dark Ages of utter stagnation and decline with virtually nothing happening but wars and famine and the destruction of the priceless ancient monuments. Then, during the Renaissance, the Classical authors reappear from oblivion, Latin and Greek become resurrected as the intelligentsia Esperanto of the Middle Ages, numerous manuscripts reappear from oblivion to be copied, enter wide circulation, and vanish again, never to be found. How preposterous would it be to suggest that there were no Dark Ages to separate the antiquity from the Renaissance – that the “Renaissance” was, in fact, the Naissance of the Western European culture as we know it? The Dark Ages are the result of creation on agenda in XV-XVII centuries of a mythical Classical Age that never was, by misdating medieval events by hundreds and thousands of years as very ancient ones.
