"Those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it."
That may be true, but in the case of Easter Island all we will ever get is an educational guess as to what happened.
We believe Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of homosexual behavior. But thats just a guess, I guess we never learned from that. We dont know what happened to Atlantis or if it even existed. History I love to learn from but educated guesses arent history.
Global warming is an educated guess that half the scientists cant agree on and thats happening now.
