Many other areas during this period had no warring states at all! Huge swathes of the Earth’s land area remained un-Hellenized. Actually, outside of Russia there were no more troubles than usual. Maybe there were a bunch of bad feelings not in the US. The period after 1000 AD did indeed have lots of great accomplishments.Guess you fell victim to the Myth Of The Warring States Period.” What about the Bronze Age? Every other historical age name is instantly understood by everyone to refer to both a time and a place. That’s because Europe at that time had 500 years to recover from the civilizational collapse that demolished its economic and intellectual capacity – a collapse whose immediate aftermath we call “the Dark Ages”.

Part of the evidence for the “absence of sources” claim is that the first use of the exact term “Dark Age” may come from by the 16th-century writer Caesar Baronius, who had a more specific time in mind, 888 – 1046. In order to avoid this kind of speculation, I think of history as being along at least two axes: goodness and impressiveness.

He wrote: But Baronius was writing well after Petrarch, his “Dark Age” was very different from the one we know today (only used to refer to a 150-year period in the Church), and in the same sentence that he mentioned dark = few writers, he also calls it “harsh”, “barren of good”, “base”, and full of “abounding evil”. Alexander may or may not have been a good person, but he was certainly an impressive one.

Petrarch used it to describe, well, every single thing that had happened since the fall of Rome. Surely no period that produced all that can be called ‘dark’!

He didn’t rain dark judgment over hundreds of years of human achievement because of historical evidence of any kind, by the way; his entire argument was based on the general feeling that life sucked absolute weasel scrotum ever since Rome went belly-up. All of those are from after the period 500 – 1000 AD.

In around 1343, in the conclusion of his epic Africa, he wrote: “My fate is to live among varied and confusing storms. Look, a lot of history sucked, and moral judgments are hard.

But for you perhaps, if as I hope and wish you will live long after me, there will follow a better age. Jared Diamond thinks hunter-gatherers were freer and happier than anyone since.

The term “World War I” was invented by Ernst Haeckel, who was not a historian, based on his personal opinion that it seemed to be a war, and involve the whole world, and be the first one to do so.

The term “Cold War” was invented by George Orwell, who was not a historian, based only on his personal opinion that it seemed conflict-y but without much actual fighting.

In fact, you probably could have taken a similar picture at the time, with an east/west instead of north/south axis.

From The Muslims of Andalusia: I get that this is just a pun I’m taking too seriously.

The entire concept is complete and utter horseshit cobbled together by a deluded writer.
