Inuit writer Rachel Attituq Qitsualik:

     “The Inuit cosmos is ruled by no one. There are no divine mother and father figures. There are no wind gods and solar creators. There are no eternal punishments in the hereafter, as there are no punishments for children or adults in the here and now.“


" Eskimo belive that animals as humans have souls. By killing animal or human is almost same. Spirit of killed person animal could hunt you down. Who know what those people think in freezing thriller when they saw  aurora borealis or northern lights, some might think thats their pass away family members some thats gods, spirits, giants ..."

Your statement is in direct conflIct with your reference quote.

What are your sources for this research?


Your comment about Theresa Lee was rude and uncalled for.

Describing your hyper-ego as solipsistic was kind.  You don't discuss, you just proclaim
Everyone else wrong.

Instead of getting defensive just present your evidence, your sources.

Science is the application of the scientific method.  You can't apply the scientific method to history, ergo history is not science.

History is the study of the written records of mankind.  Modern historians do indeed apply critical methodology to examining and synthesizing texts, and do indeed draw on archaeology (especially for older periods) in addition to written records, but that's not enough to make it scientific.

Thats not what I have learn. Its just your view as Jays.
While you repeating your mantra which you learn as you learn letters do you mind to answer a questions which I raised in post you quoted?

You ignore facts.
They are:
In my country as in others its called science (such as Germany-They call it Historical science). Maybe it isnt in yours but same thing as doctors in USA have diseases which doesnt exist in my culture at all. In my country is called Povjesna znanost. Meaning Historical science. And its called Humanistic science. I do agree that common people say: He studing a history. But common people also think that Vikings have had horns on helmet.
Maybe you are also historian who never heard about meeting when historians from all the world gather which is called Congress of historical science. There people gahter to discuss open historical debates. And where they agree on things or do not agree.

As I said use reason not mantra. What is science? Organized knowledge. And if you think that history isnt that then ...

Your logic is this: Chemistry is study of elements therefore it isnt science. Which is bizzare.

L they repeat their mantra, the same way you repeat yours. However you're both wrong and both right.

Yes, history is an actual science. (which is what you keep "mantraing" about)
However, history is part of those sciences, in which data is provided primarily from past events and for which there is usually no direct experimental data, such as cosmology, astronomy, astrophysics, geology, paleontology and archaeology. (Which is what you accuse Jay and Everdred to "mantra" about)

One can draw a distinction, between research directed towards identifying laws and research which seeks to determine how particular historical events occurred.Having said this, nobody ever said that the proverbial line between these sorts of science can be drawn neatly and evenly

And last but not least, historical claims are as much empirically verifiable than any other sort of claims.

So quite honestly, you ignore quite a few facts yourself. Mr; Pot, meet Mr. Kettle......

Question : Did Marco Polo actually create a map?
Question : or did Marco Polo give information which cartographers used to make their maps, for example the Fra Mauro Map.

answer this and let us discuss.

by the way, that isnt a map made by Marco polo you have posted.

I do not think they do, but you would have to ask one yourself. Having said, this I know that the Canadian government does make a legal difference between Eskimo and First Nation. Not sure if this was by request by one group or the other, or not.

Searcher,
for my mantra I gave reasons. I didnt see them refuting those reasons.
I think that Im right and they wrong. This next is just speculation. I think that reason for our different opinion is because US citizens are tought differently.
Unless someone proove me that history isnt organized or that isnt knowledge I will think on history as science.
When I heard about Congress of historical methods/studies I will change my mind.
Whats the different between my and Jay view? Thats main question. What does it change? Perhaps fact that history is self correcting? also speculating.
Also sciences isnt just experiments.Judging on that we need to discover time machine and go in history then observe. We can done thought experiments although.
But to be good historian beside good expression and communication skills you need to have insights and travel in your mind to the past. You must use imagination in sense.
You must be able to do thought experiments. But what you can do in present is observation. Observation of many things related to history. Obesrvation is scientific method.
Ofcourse also you can study old manuscripts. And yes history use archaeology, geology, astronomy,...Same as physics use math.
What you mean by this: "historical claims are as much empirically verifiable than any other sort of claims."?
There was a time before scientists. Their meaning evolve. What is scientists? Whats historian then? Natural philosopher? Observer? Methodologist? Cmon.

No one knows for sure.
What is known that FBI studied that map for 50 years and that originate from Venecie and that it was called Map with Ship.
That isnt map of Polo but if you wanted I can upload original Map with Ship aka Marco Polo s map.

Theres no evidence that the "Map with Ship" map was made from marco Polo's own maps.

Are there any maps made by marco polo himself?

Hell, he was famous and anyone can hitch on to his bandwagon and they did.

Theresa Lee Clark says she is Inupiaq.  This would be a great opportunity to learn and debate, if she comes back, but you choose to insult her instead.  Why?

Your arguments consist of a lot of, "you're wrong I am right".  Show proof.

Well L, lets agree to disagree, because you telling me to shut my mouth and like your post, when I obviously disagree with your post and the rather arrogant way you just answered, just cost you a lot of respect in my book.
And left me wondering how you managed to find this respect in the first place.

L, Jaylemurph is an historian.  In the real sense, though he's only highly schooled in a specific area of history, IIRC.

You, on the other hand, continually exhibit to anyone that cares to look that you are completely innocent of any real knowledge of history.

It was a real joke when you said what you said about Jaylemurph.  My advice is that you might want to pre-emptively apologize, as Jaylemurph has one of the most barbed tounges and savage wits on this forum.

Awww how sweet...
You and questionmark made perfect couple so it isnt surprise that you think same. What is surprising is that you two (so called sceptics) agreed on totaly fringe idea.(Jays)
And what what did I say about Jay? That he doesnt know what he is talking about when he say that history isnt science? Yup. I said it. And it aint funny. That could only be funny to ______ (say what ever you like) person. Such as you and Qustionmark.

Harte I already told you  several times. I will repeat it again.
I dare you to quote me and respond to my particular part of post which you dont agree or keep quite. Its easy to attack person but attack my arguments if you dare.
I double dare you?Lets value your knowledge? What do you say? Please stop hiding behind sceptic mask whos tactic is hit and run.
Somehow I doubt that you will respond. Same as Jay. Because you know that there is nothing smart you can say as counter argument.
Jay might be historian. But he defenetly doesnt know what history is. Sorry if your world is crumbled. Maybe you look at Jay as on Holy Cow but thats your psychological problems which you need to get over with. Lets stick with old mistake rather then hear new voice.
With all due respect (yes Im still have respect to you and dignity to discuss with you even you show some traits which would usualy made to put you in ignore list) you should stop giving advice. You should first say something as counter argument to my arguments.
Why would I apologize? Because you and others affraid to look trough telescope? Now...thats joke.
