  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    That kind of stuff happens all the time as humans attempt to rewrite history through books and other forms of education.

    It's ridiculous, I know.

    When this game was released there were all sorts of so-called experts online, chiming in about how authentic, or lack thereof, Valhalla was to real history. From the clothing, to the weapons, to the dialogue, and everything inbetween. I was talking to someone who was schooled in 'Viking' history. He posted a YouTube video on the inaccuracies of Viking religion. People today believe all sorts of BS about what Vikings believed in, with their gods, and such. Kids today are completely brainwashed by Hollywood. Thor and his blinking hammer.

    You probably remember the game 'password' when you were an elementary school kid. Where everyone sits in a circle and the teacher whispers a word into the first person's ear, and that person passes that word on to the next person. And so on and so forth. Until the word makes the rounds, and comes full circle, finally arriving back to the teacher. The word may have been 'Valhalla' at the start, but after making the rounds, it's now become 'Cow Bell'.

    That's exactly how history is told to you and I. We are the teacher.

    Video games are not where you want to go when seeking historical truths. They are written and programmed by artists who have their own version of history.

    Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.

    You can go to a library, a university, or surf the internet and the written word is not much better. You can't trust anybody. Everybody has a story to tell.

    And for every hundred years that passes the stories become more outrageous and more outlandish.

    Seems driven by a chip on their shoulder rather than an academic rationale. From a salvo of clickbait bombast the article recedes, full of concession and conjecture.
