I think you missed my point Jonny, but thank you for your reply. ss been busy.
My education as well as most of my years of working life since my 30s has been about research and application of the results of the applicable research.
My point was “facts” are only as relevant and trustworthy as those who provide them. History is only as factual as those who write it from their interpretation of the available original documents. The “facts” provided by the article you posted are tempered with the opinion, experiences and ultimate purpose of the posters.
My granddaughters all currently being educated and/or graduated with different interests and majors from three different educational institutions, would hardly agree with me on “facts.” Their life experience are far different than mine. I feel sure as per another poster mentioned, they’ve never seen the white and colored fountains at the courthouse in the center square of Georgetown, TX, that I grew up with.
Just suggesting “facts” for each individual are those you’re willing to accept as true. Those same or similar experiences and/or research can vary from culture, society and/or each individual based on experience, personal perception, location of acquisition and belief in their validity. Just words for
consideration when using “facts” for the purpose of argument or correction of
others beliefs and statements. And so it goes from an elderly cultural anthropologist. BTW, I do have the degrees to prove that status, but you’ll just have to take me at my word of that “fact.”
