Aye, I know. Several people have pointed this out and I agree.

This isn't really supposed to be a thread about Chris Brown personally but about academic historians not taking the analysis of physical history very seriously. It leads to them making some dubious statements, that they would themselves would be the first to pull apart if it was based on written evidence.
