I was reading this thread:

And I thought. Did Alexander the Great really even exist at all?

 

So I made this thread just for that.

 

Did Alexander the great exist? How about Christopher Columbus also?


Well Christopher Columbus probably existed I think, but Alexander the Great? I think they found Greek knives in Nepal.

That forum doesn't appear to say he didn't exist (also, the name of the website makes me doubtful of its credibility).

 

Alexander the Great is a well documented historical figure. For example, there are many cities named after him (Alexandria, etc.).

But the Silk Road I think started to exist at about the same time.

The knives might have traveled on the Silk Road to their destination in Nepal, Pakistan or India.

So what? What does that have to do with the existence of Alexander the Great? Do you have any evidence that all the historical evidence is faked?

"evidence that all the historical evidence is faked"

What does that mean? What exactly is evidence?

Moderator Note

If you are going to contend that these people did not exist, you must, as per the rules of the forum, post some evidence in support of your contention. You have been this this before. No, linking to a conspiracy site doesn't count.

 

Phrasing it as a question does not remove the burden of proof; if this is a legitimate inquiry, then the answer is "yes, go read some history books" and there is no reason to continue on with the thread. But this is likely trolling with some half-baked idea, so likewise, this is closed.

 

Stop posting unsupported and unsubstantiated crap.
