In class today, Equia and Suada were giving the class a lesson on the subject of History. It was interesting to hear what was considered history. The main question, “What counts as evidence for history?” and “How many people are affected and to what extent?” It was said, anything that was not significant to the process to where we are today is not considered history.

As a student or researcher today, you can not change what is in the books, you can only read and learn from the books. What happened in the past happened in the past. Using this information we can only learn to not make the same mistakes as we did in the past. Religion prevents us from making unethical choices; however there are many beliefs which are considered inappropriate to some cultures.
