For some reason, people have a hard time believing there are a few people who are hard at work planning their enslavement by using plausible deniability. Apparently they have no idea that history is riddled with such occurrences where an "elite few" conspired to achieve world domination at the expense of the masses - so really, this concept should be a no brainer. Another thought to consider - ever here of advertising or marketing agencies? They consist of a few people who meet and conspire on how to separate you from your hard earned cash by using your pride, greed, vanity, and laziness against you, coupled with promises that border on lies, so you will buy a product you really could live without.
The shows and the experts on them, give mis-information and many times leave out an opposing view. For instance they only give the view of Orthodox Judaism regarding Scripture, without a rebuttal from a practicing Karaite - who is well versed in the TaNaK [the entire Old Testament] as opposed to only the Torah [first five books of the Bible]. The Orthodox Jew puts Rabbinic fables above Scripture, where as Karaites honor Scripture alone. They don't even have anyone on the show who supports Orthodox Christianity, and I'm not talking about Catholicism - Catholicism is not Orthodox Biblical Christianity, it is rooted in Babylonian Mysticism. So is the History Channel's approach of informing the public really unbiased? They also only give views from book authors who apparently have no degrees of scholarship in the field they published their book on - they may be good researchers and tell a good story, but they also have an agenda - to sell their book by making it sound legitimate. The History Channel has had shows regarding extra biblical gospels that didn't make it into the closed canon of Scripture and act like it was because they lost a popularity contest instead of a being rejected solely based on their heretical content, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, upon godly men who were given this monumental task - deciding what was to go into the Bible.
To me it seems the History Channel has taken it upon themselves to re-write history with their spin which seems to be the "all roads lead to Rome" philosophy - a philosophy they are selling hard and heavy to their viewers. Does anyone even question their sources, their research, their claims? Their shows on the gospels were riddled with errors including misquotes and innuendos, and fables their "experts" believed should have been included in the closed cannon. They are really there to help put doubt in our minds regarding Scriptures validity and convince us that even though they claim they know what they are talking about, they can't be sure it is the absolute truth.
If anything, I now watch their shows with my son Timothy, to instruct him in the wonderful world of critical examination - to take their claims and ask logical questions, to really listen to what they are saying, and consider the implications of what was said. I want him to be able to catch how they strive to make connections between things that don't really exist by using misleading verbiage I'm teaching him - I hope - to not just accept what is spoon fed to him by so called "experts" and that includes myself. I want him to feel confident in knowing that it is okay to think for himself and to ask questions in an effort to get to the truth, because unlike what these so-called experts claim, the absolute truth does exist.
This world is headed toward the one world leader, known in the Bible as the "Anti-Christ". Has the History Channel covered that topic yet? If they have, I'm sure it is mis-leading and inaccurate. The truth is that he will not appear until the great falling away occurs in the church, a falling away into a great apostasy - which will be a world wide acceptance of the mingling of orthodox Christianity with Mystery Religion, or the mystery of lawlessness, which Paul addresses in 2 Thes. 2:3-12. This mystery of lawlessness has been at work since the Tower of Babel - the mother of all harlots whose founder and builder was Nimrod - whose name means - "the rebel'. He was a hunter of the souls of mankind, to turn them against God. This apostasy will teach that we all worship the same God, only we gave him different names. This is the current ecumenical movement of Robert Schuller and Billy Graham.
There have been numerous shows on that make ancient mythologies seem like they are synonymous with the gospel of Jesus, in that all pagan cultures have a "suffering savior" of sorts, born on Dec. 25th. This is misleading and a false claim. Any pagan culture whose mythology supposedly has a "suffering savior" is a recent addition to that ancient mythology. That means their version of a "suffering savior" was non-existent until well after 30 A.D. Any honest scholar who studies pagan culture's and their mythologies can tell you that. No where in the Bible does it say or even imply that Jesus was born on Dec. 25th, this is a pagan tradition adopted by the pagan Catholic Church to help muddy the waters of Orthodoxy.
Yes, The History Channel has people on their shows who they want you to assume are "experts", people that say Christianity copied or borrowed the suffering savior concept from pagan cultures when in fact it is the other way around. They are the ones who are confused as to the true nature of the Catholic Church - it is not, nor has it ever been "Christ-like". As if that wasn't bad enough, they produce shows that place the Bible in doubt, and that you simply can't know the absolute truth, because according to them, every part of history is up for debate, and it is in a constant state of flux. They act as if it is impossible to arrive at the truth - this is a half-truth which is in essence a lie. It is true that new historical information comes in from time to time, and as it is found can change previous facts, or it can confirm them! The History Channel should indeed be re-named - "The Myth and Legend Channel" as they are not really interested in providing their viewers with accurate historical facts given in an un-biased journalistic fashion - so indeed - viewer discretion is advised!
