Please don't tell me that pyramids do not have psychic powers. Next you will tell me that Atlantis was a myth.

I doubt chronological relativity is the meaning of this particular "theory", though. I actually think they propose that 300 years of history didn't happen, and that those 300 years was made up by historians after the fact.

Credit given where credit is due: Such theories (like some of the other wacko theories being mentioned in this thread) are never boring, but that just don't make up for exasparation given by the fact of their complete and utter retardedness.

Made up by Historians after the fact???
That REALLY rules it out, then.
That would imply that two or more Historians agreed on something!
Even more ridiculous that claiming that two or more scientists agreed to make up the same story about evolution.

That is true of course, my post was intended more as an answer to 'are we living in the 18th Century?'

I suppose actually we're in the 45.5 millionth century. Or 133.7 millionth. Or something.
