Serious scientific facts have been collected in this book which prove that as early as the 12th century A.D, all of Eurasia was pagan, and human sacrifice and slavery prospered in Europe.

We shall cite a multitude of evidence which testifies that all “ancient” manuscripts are literary works of the 15th and 16th centuries and that there never was in reality an “ancient” Rome and Greece as modern historical science teaches us.

We have collected the conclusions of dozens of scholars from various countries, who say irrefutably that the most ancient monument of mankind, the pyramids of Egypt, were constructed in the period between the 10th and 13th centuries A.D., that is as recently as 800 – 900 years ago.

Processing of written sources on a computer, with a comparative analysis of their authenticity, and the multitude of other newer methods for the study of history allow the assertion: in the 13th – 14th centuries A.D., the first world war in history broke out, which ended with the formation of a colossal empire with the capital in Istanbul, which at that time was called Jerusalem. The citizens of this empire called their country Israel and practiced the religion which is set forth in the Old Testament, and its territory included a large part of Europe, Asia, all the civilized regions of Africa and Japan. There is basis to say that the Aztec civilization also was included in the Empire’s composition
The joke is Nelson Goodman’s proof that p:

Zabludowski has insinuated that my thesis that p is false, on the basis of alleged counterexamples. But these so-called “counterexamples” depend on construing my thesis that p in a way that it was obviously not intended — for I intended my thesis to have no counterexamples. Therefore p.
