Way back in the first movie in the Indiana Jones series, we briefly witness Dr. Jones teaching in his college classroom. He explains that his field, Archaeology, is the search for Fact, and that searching for Truth is a field taught down the hallway, in Dr. Tyree's philosophy class as I recall. Of course, during all this, he's being distracted by a female student who is clearly attending just because she finds him...appealing.
In that light-hearted environment, his distinction makes sense. However, in the arena of political theater, the problem is becoming overwhelming, and it's time to put a stop to it.
