Origyptian to R Avry Wilson
I'm sorry that you feel the need to get so hostile when you read posts from me. If you have evidence that contradicts my own perspective, I'm all ears. Meanwhile, resorting to insults and sarcasm in lieu of evidence might be your idea of "science", but I subscribe to a different definition than you.
In the post you refer to Avry did not offer any insult. Even apologised for not finding any other description for your argument than "idiotic".
Do you enjoy claiming to be the victim ?
When you say you are "all ears" is that not refering to understanding anothers point of view but rather claiming unchallenged superiority of your own view?
Your lengthy post includes:
Whether you want to talk about Reisner, Vyse, Herodotus, Stocks, etc., the standards they applied to data collection, analysis, and reporting was very often incomplete, illogical, based on speculation and hearsay, contradicted by other evidence, and wrong. What you keep failing to realize is that "science" has been sorely ignored by much of traditional Egyptology, and many of the tenets that are still embraced today were established back when the standards were so low that if the story simply made sense it was accepted as fact, if it was stated by a self-proclaimed historian it was accepted as fact, ...
This may or may not be true?
However, by your own standards of criticism, it would mean that you ought offer better scientifically established, verified and demonstratable alternatives.
Otherwise you are simply adding your own version of "incomplete, illogical, based on speculation and hearsay, contradicted by other evidence, and wrong".... blather!
No! I am not in any way attempting to be rude. Merely offering a suggested method of limiting the derision you cop here.
Where is your better standard scientifically proven alternative evidence.
Wrap your ears around that if you can.
