9. French and Brits both said the Hundred Years War was a religious war too...

It becomes critically important (for objective observation) to remove all irrelevant justifications and rationalizations being used in any conflict, find the root cause, and proceed with a premise from that root cause.

French and Brits both said the Hundred Years War was a religious war too... but in fact, it was simply another conflict of the European nation states to prevent any one country from becoming the sole super-power. We are aware of this because historians took the time to peel away the justifications and rationalization being used, and replaced them with the actual causes.

No doubt, the Historical Method does tend to get in the way of many people's biases.
