  • Surprisingly lacks research

    For an author whose work I admire, this "history" opens with unfounded assumptions. Dismissing the universe's creation is a poor way to begin a history, and concluding that religious teachers no longer accepted the Genesis account is flagrantly opposed to the views of theologians of H.G.'s day. Unfortunately his desire for a humanistic understanding destroys his credibility in reference to history with regards to this work.
