But some viewers of Stargate:SG1 believe that the pyramids are early Earth civilization attempts to imitate Goa'uld Ha'tak motherships.

Lets not jump to any hasty conclusions here.

If Startate is involved, I say we should jump to conclusions as fast as possible. Except for the seasons after Richard Dean Anderson left.

This is very true, especially the last part.

If you want to talk about fabricated history, I vote the existence of Stargate: Universe.  Complete fabrication, never happened.

Frankly, it's an embarassment that anyone believed it in the first place.

Orgone? Isn't that the substance with a negative mass that is released when burning stuff?

No wait, that was Phlogiston. I got them confused.

Orgone is jizz-magical fuel that creates heat, one crazed psychologist made a machine and ran tests with Einstein, and he got raided by the FDA and died in prison.

IM NOT EVEN KIDDING.

Don't forget the book burning.  That was a proud moment for America.

Oh yes, certainly up there with the concentration camps and other such charming times.

My worldview is 100% based on forgeries.

Because I cannot observe the entire world simultaneously, my "view" of it is necessarily constructed of facsimiles and impressions that exist only in my mind, and are largely informed by images and narratives that have been presented to me.

Cainad,
LOLpedantryLOL

My worldview is based on watching monkeys drive a planet around the sun.  Badly.

This is why I hate humans.

IIRC they got away with the burning by declaring all Reich's works to be the instruction manual for the banned accumulator boxes he sold as a therapy device.
