So list the things that have happened and it is the same.
So are you saying..."It is the same"...considering the things that have happened???? Just some of those I mentioned above.
So life is STILL "just the same" for..........
The American Indians, who helped the Europeans survive when they arrived in America?
Our knowledge of the universe when we decided "we" revolve around the sun and all the advancements derived from Einsteins theory of relativity that wouild have never come to pass with the previous "certainty"?
The founding of America? Against all odds??????
The defeat of Napolean as dictator over Europe?
The millions of Jews killed because no one considered Hitler a threat?
The creation of the atomic bomb forced out of Japans expansion?
The PLO recognition as a simple "political party"?
The European breakup due to transfer of post war reconstruction to the Soviet Union?
The collapse of British rule in Africa and consequent ethnic cleansing and death of millions?
The rise of China and economic loss in manufacturing in America? (This refers back to your Wally World's comment as well). But anybody with intelligence would only visit WalMart as a last resort. Due to the economic transfer to China.
If you think America is "still the same" despite all these events (which are just minimal in historical accounts) you seriously need to study history!
HEYAL, without the defeat of the British regulars alone, there would be NO PRESENT DAY AMERICA!!!!! Do you not even realize that????
You'd be getting your minimal paycheck in British lbs. instead of dollars. There would be no such thing as The United States Of America!
EVERTHING that happens, changes the course of current and future history!
Go research and study the "butterfly effect".
NOTHING! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Is, as it would have been, due to any and all of those events. And those are just off the top of my head. There are an unlimited number of others.
The only comment that comes to mind is,
"An endless reservoir of uninhibited ignorance"...Terry Evans
