However I take your point.
Well, I see it like this: if hypotheses are disproved then there is no meaning in not accepting it. If an event wasn´t there, it wasn´t there.
What we are looking for is events inside a black box called the past.
Exclusively speculating about the contents is not history.
And if it is not history it has no historical value.
And if it has no historical value it is useless.
Agreed in the greater part.
However when the disproved ideas are still produced, they can be misleading and confusing to those who do not have the knowledge, that’s why I feel such must be challenged.
