Ahh, no he is a logical type. What you think is real is based on what
sources you accept as valid information. There are programs on ancient
history on PBS that re-iterate certain viewpoints established by the
power structure but are not always accurate in my opinion for instance
because of scientific evidence that is not allowed to be introduced. But
that is getting off topic. As for the polynesian navigation episode, I
believe that is real.
