HistoryChan: The History of the Devil

Anyone ever seen this before?

It seems to be of standard History Channel caliber and rife with misinformation and "alternative" historical contexts.

I'm going to need this.

This is one of their less interesting factually dubious "documentaries."

For me, the History Channel stopped being educational and started becoming entertainment. Yes, I have seen it.  At about six and one half minutes it begins to really spiral out of reality.

You have to love revisionist history and theology.

I'm so sick of the fact that for about five years now, TV has been ruined by the reality-show craze. It seems like every single show--even on Animal Planet and History Channel--have been following the reality-show format and quite frankly, it sucks. Sure, Pawn Stars was good at first, but it got boring very fast and is now just plain stupid with the reality show drama.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

Sure, Pawn Stars was good at first . . .

I am going to continue my winning streak for judging that which I haven't read, watched, whatever.

It was never good.
