Alternate conspiracy theory: HAI doesn't exist. It's just an advanced machine learning protocol designed to take in topic suggestions, filter though them, and turn them into ok videos. If that were true, that would explain why we rely so heavily on your viewer topic suggestions, so submit yours and, if we use it, we (the computer) will send you a free HAI t-shirt:

I mean, define "machine learning". After all, there's definitely a neural network involved 😛

There are 2 extremes of easily lead people, known as sheeple... Those that unquestioningly follow and parrot official lines and those that disbelieve all official science and history yet believe just about any alternative bullshit theory doing the rounds.

This is almost as entertaining as the conspiracy theory that Australia doesn't exist and is all actors. Which I think only came about because someone pointed out Australians don't report seeing that enormous Antarctic ice wall notion that so many flat Earthers are fond of. If it's true, then the shadowy nefarious forces of globalism paid an actress to date me for two and a half years, and I'm nobody important so that doesn't make sense.

Don't use Zoom, they lied to their customers about security and a lot of people got hacked. Jitsi is open source and secure and has better privacy. And it's free. Vote for better world online by using the better software. :)

Soooo...the Holy Roman Emperor and The league with the Byzantine Emperor, not even 200 years after the massive Imperial Schism (where the Pope decreed the HRE was the true Empire and not the Byzantine Empire ((see Irene of Athens)), which permanently put strain on Eastern European/Anatolian/Greek and Western European relations, decided to create a massive global conspiracy.....for...what reason exactly lol? WAIT A MINUTE, that means the very controversy of Irene of Athens and the Pope never happened then (cause it happened in 800AD) uhhhhhhhhhhh........... Also the 'Roman Architecture' pillar was perhaps one of the SILLIEST things I have ever heard. I guess by that logic, there was never an Imperial Dynasty in unified Russia, because they called themselves Czar's (from Caesar), and fashioned themselves as 'Third Rome' over 800 years after the Western Roman Empire fell..........

No, no, MiddleAgesGate is totally true. It's part of a massive cover-up by the Clintons, Obama, the Bilderbergs, and the guy selling Italian Ices down at the corner (I can tell he's in on it because of the way he looks at me . . . I think he was in on PizzaGate but I'm not sure yet).

On the other side Anybody who would like to skip over 300 years would have plenty of time to invent whatever they want. They would have at least 20 years to invent whatever they want. Please describe with details what have happened in your town (yes, just a town, not whole country or continent, which already makes it a lot simpler) what happened in June 1999 - May 2000. You cannot check on Internet (it did not exists in 7th or 11th century). You may use only one library and it have to be closest to place where you leave. You cannot use newspapers, as those have not existed at those times either. Basically you are limited to what existed in 11th century, nothing more recent. No newspapers, no Internet, no video or audio records, just written word. And to make it much simpler, you can use printed word, but only books. Go on make a video about just this year using only those sources of information.

I remember reading the book ages ago , one reason it was said that they added the 300 years was to push the conquer of Jerusalem by the Muslims to the past , to soften the effect of the crisis ... and that the crusades started right after the fall of Jerusalem... 🧐

medieval artifacts are rare because of iconoclasm which was an idea that proposed destroying art because people may be worshiping them. most medieval art are from the catholic church since they were the , most powerful influential and wealthy group of people at the time which gave them a lot of control over everyone that's why most if not all recovered music from the dark ages are religious pieces.

See I believe that the timeline is wrong I do believe there was a brief period of this kind of action. I make its comparison to the early 1900s where seeing their ybody knew how to ride an electric vehicle and you got trains with no overhead and then less than a decade later those same vehicles and trains are being pulled by horses

This theory is too boring to gain a wide following. You'd need to widen the missing time. Say the past 1500 years don't exist, then you might get a following. Don't worry about explaining it, people don't really need credible explanations. Just make up a story that flatters whatever people's prejudices are.

This is stupid af, and totally cluttered with false information. The holy Roman emperor is not a "Roman emperor" it was a spot for the "holy Roman empire" (actually a bunch of microstates in today's germany, Switzerland, belgium, france, Poland and a few more) that the pope of the time made to act like the Roman empire was reclaimed and create a non existent nation that seemed to have a lot of power but in reality didn't do shit at all. The pope still controlled everything. Meanwhile at the same time the Byzantine empire still existed, probably the closest to the real Roman empire... Also archeological evidence is not hard to find, you go to Denmark and you will find lodes of pre christianity viking age archeological evidence confirmed to be from before 900 and after 500. Also Switzerland has a huge middle-age story full of exciting battles and conquers in the different regions. Old castles everywhere that are over 1000 years old. Every european knows shit like this because it's everywhere.
