Some Myths In the 3rd Century Before Now

English Grammar ... Bizarre myth starts here:
Rules were laid down in this century by people who wanted to run everyone else's life, not their own. The most influential was Bishop Robert Lowth who wrote "A Short Introduction to English Grammar" where many rules were laid down for English using Latin as the template. English evolved from Teutonic languages and was simplified and clarified by in its grammar and syntax by the Vikings. No Latin grammar was ever part of the language until these self - appointed arbitrers tried to force it to be so.
Mercantilism ... The myth urging exploitation of non European countries started here. Phlogisten ... A myth to explain combustion.
