this is a summary of what Alexander Thom said about the people trashing his lifetime's work on megalithic stone circles.
There are 3 types of people my work has been presented to:
Those who read it, assess the evidence, and accept that my conclusions are valid
Those who read it, assess the evidence, ask questions, test the theories and eventually after much persuasion accept that my conclusions are most probably valid.
those who have decided in advance that my work is not valid regardless of the evidence.
It is easy to classify people based on this simple approach.
