    Story
    (122)

    History is made and defined by landmark events-moments that irrevocably changed the course of human civilization. They have given us: spiritual and political ideas; catastrophic battles and wars; scientific and technological advances; world leaders both influential and monstrous; and cultural works of unparalleled beauty.

    Quaker says: "Fun course but Professor Fears is not for everyone"
    "*not actually history"

    Any additional comments?

    I was pretty disappointed to hear Prof. Fears telling the story of the Jews in Egypt and the first Passover as if these were historical events; they're not. I thought I was getting a serious history course, not a sermon or a course on myth and legend. If you're looking for a serious course presented with academic rigor, this isn't it. I'd like to get my credit back, honestly.
