Hot Debate : Scientists (or Historians) specialists in their fields might be quacks in Religion?

Thing is, only a very, very small handful of historians are eye-witnesses. Reputable historians take information from as many sources as they can or deem necessary, and then present their information as provisional conclusions —the unstated provisional aspect is expected to understood by the reader, just as conclusions by scientists always come with the unstated, but implicit, qualification that they are not absolute facts No reputable historian would ever claim all their conclusions are absolutely, 100% factual, particularly those involving the particulars of an event. It’s not how they work. So, in a very real sense the conjectures of historians are opinions. Some based on damn good evidence, and some on hardly any evidence at all. Moreover, pronouncements about history don’t gain any more validity if made part of the public record than if they lay unseen and gathering dust on the the historian’s closet shelf.

An excellent and thought revealing post.
Our resident historians who have graduated from school/college/university yet their vision is still restricted within the precincts of their institution to note this post please to broaden their outlook to outer-world. Please

I don’t agree with you.
Quran is more than the history. Quran is 100% correct, while history/historians could be anything between 0 % to below 100% from case to case.
