Do you not find it engaging to know that their are numerous copies still unaccounted for and that there is a handprint on the back (they showed photo of that) or that Thomas Paine may have written a large part of it or that we celebrate it on arguably the wrong day or that a copy recently turned up at a flea market?????
But I guess the show attempts to be engaging and a bit dramatic. .. instead of the old dry droning on of History channels "Planes of War" shows of earlier years.
You really are a hard to please old codger, aintchya?
Anyways.. I also watched the show where they attempt to prove/debunk Area 51 and between the two shows they have stated nothing that was unverifiable.. other than their opinions. To be sure... they do a lot of eye brow raising and side glances and knowing nods... but that's just to help lure you in. At the end of the show the 3 investigators weigh in and give their opinions... which is usually balanced with 1 or 2 believing and/or 1or 2 disbelieving.
I'm in it for the unknown facts that I wasn't aware of prior to watching. Like the fact that Area 51 was built on a silver mine... so there are underground tunnels and rooms where a lot of stuff/secrets may be squirreled away. "The base does not appear on public U.S. government maps; the USGS topographic map for the area only shows the long-disused Groom Mine." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Area_51
How about the fact that the government always declassifies information... even stuff they don't want us knowing... 9-11, Bay of Pigs and so on.
