Hi Scott

It is over for now. I am was trying to wind this down (ought be obvious from my previous last post).

Thank you for the reply, I did not expect one.

M Stower has in typical articulate, concise manner, already nailed it :

It is evidence which gets cherry-picked, not explanations.

You asked in bewilderment why so angry. If you really want to know more then PM me , I won't waste other viewers time in this already disrupted thread.

Surely it should have occurred to you that I (and others of similar mindset) did not jump on your self promotion of recent article thread or at your re-emergence here. It was restraint.

But matey, if you come in swinging with the tired, empty meaningless authoritarian baggage of slamming Egyptology in general and then sprouting utter crap, which seems to me like a weak way of making yourself look big and important on an alt forum, then expect to cop some back! You wish to have a high public profile so you are different from the absolute nobodies who already do such here daily .

I am not a dedicated disciple of orthodoxy. I consider orthodoxy is a little closed minded on several areas, however all professional disciplines are the same, for good reason.

Scott, I DARE YOU!, to do this quick homework exercise!

Step 1. Look up dictionary definition of "cherry-pick"

Step 2. Get those photocopies of your entire so called "Coptic-Egyptian texts" and highlighter pens.

Step 3. Mark (highlight) any statement in it you do not accept. To get you started
eg
- Arabic writing by builders of pyramids
- Rabid naked women with fangs representing spirit of the pyramid
- Inaccurate measurements and constructions
- etc

Step 4. Mark (different colour) anything you are uncertain about or consider maybe possible but cannot find corroborating evidence for it elsewhere.

Step 5. On completion assess how much is left unmarked. That is the meagre "cherry pick" you are left with! It is NOT evidence or a supporting text, but rather a notion or little of what you were hoping to find to support premeditated conclusions or imaginations.

Step 6. Consider whether a document with so much highlighted can be relied upon as "evidence".

Reply if you must, I advise I will not reply unless utterly ridiculous!

Cheers
