History: "1. the branch of knowledge dealing with past events... 4. the record of past events and times, especically in connection with the human race." - Webster's College Dictionary
History is easiest to study as it happens. However, written history was uncommon in ancient times, and almost non-existent before the Flood. It must be pieced together from artifacts found by archaeologists, dated by scientists, and interpreted by anthropologists.
Determining a date for Noah's Flood (for example) requires consistency with any other facts we know, about not only the flood, but the period in which the flood supposedly occurred. This is in fact an impossible standard when required as an absolute, but it is still the standard drives legitimate research. As exceptions are noted, either they betray a misunderstanding of the facts, or our conclusions do. The reader is left to judge. The researcher can only make his case.
