The study of the past, not to be confused with creationism, a weird amalgamation of history, paleontology and theology (see Creationism)
The study of the past, either with the aid of historical eyewitness documentation (such as Genesis) or without. Historical hypotheses are designed to be consistent with the available evidence (documentation, natural science data, etc.) but there is no way to "prove" a particular historical theory correct without a time machine. All that can be said is that a hypothesis fits the data. (See overspecification error.)

a smart, sharp book that approaches its subject armed with a cutting-edge version of the academic study of religion
Meetings take place on the third Tuesday of every month, from 5.15 to about 6.45 pm. Anyone interested in Jersey history is welcome. Most members have a special interest which they study, but it is not necessary to have one in order to join. Research topics can be on any subject, such as the life of a particular person, the history of a house or street (your own?), education, trades, associations and so on. The list is endless. Members report on their latest findings, including even the smallest item which may be of use to others, and these are discussed. Pictures or objects are often brought and attempts made to identify them. A group of section members keep a photographic record of buildings due for demolition or major reconstruction and the Island Planning & Environment Committee is contacted if an application for change seems to threaten its importance.
The Study of History for the Junior Certificate Examination in Ireland can be examined in Higher Level or Ordinary Level.
