I'm with you on that first part. But there are some fashionable trends in academia that need to get squashed for their absurdity. Too often, academics are speaking or writing to other academics, not the general public.

Steeped in science? This is history, not physics. "Social sciences" as they are called, are not real sciences. Things aren't really proven or disproved so much as supported by evidence or not supported by evidence. The difference is huge. Only naive historians think of themselves as practicing a true science. Archaeology is closer to a real science but still mostly like history.
