    Sir James Jeans

    -This most beautiful system (The Universe) could only proceed from the dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.All variety of created objects which represent order and Life in the Universe could happen only by the willful reasoning of its original Creator, whom I call the Lord God.

    Some of it he got right. I don't really like soundbite history though. Especially talking about something as complicated as the crusades. I usually tell people to read Rodney Stark or Thomas F. Madden if they want to learn more about it. Thanks for sharing this though :).

    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." ― C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock: Essays on Theology (Making of Modern Theology)

    He left out the part about the Muslims stealing half of Christendoms land from them through war, and that's one of the main reasons why the Crusades were called. Though, he got most of the other stuff right.
    Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate.

    This series often gets used in high school history classes and I guess that sort of thing is understandable in a course where you have to move through a massive amount of material in one short semester, but I agree, this particular subject deserves a lot more than a short video, with so many factors coming into play.
    For what was given to everyone for the use of all, you have taken for your exclusive use. The earth belongs not to the rich, but to everyone. - Ambrose, 4th century AD

    Oh I see. Thanks for letting me know that King :). I couldn't agree more with you.
