Don't Know Much About History

See, here's the thing. If you're going to be talking on national television for a living, then you are someone who needs to understand some history. Really, I think everyone could benefit from knowing history, but I especially recommend it if you're going to be talking about historical events in front of lots of people, even Americans.

"Keep in mind that probably when [Epicurus] was around, there was no Jesus Christ stuff going on," said co-host Whoopi Goldberg said.

"They still had Christians back then," Shepherd interrupted.

"They had gods," Goldberg said.

"They had Christians," Shepherd insisted. "And they threw 'em to the lions."

"I think this might predate that," Goldberg said.

"I don't think anything predated Christians," Shepherd shot back.

I'm just sayin'. I can even recommend a teacher.
