Thanks

I have had both papers for many years.

Both Davidovits and Barsoum in early years were IMHO over the top, and too enthusiastic with their claims.
I find that their writing in recent years is more cautious and reserved.

eg You will not my first reply comment to Thanos, I suggested too much was made of claims re Giza.
eg I enjoyed Barsoum's paper but there were lot's of areas and claims I disagreed with immediately and especially regards G1.

I think there was a component of such methodology there (Ancient Egypt) as well, but certainly not as much as they both claimed ( over a decade ago).

Again, just throwing it out there for different subject.

But , if we can only get SC out from hiding under his bed, we can all hop back onto a staple hobby horse again?

I will be less dogmatic hereon. I'll try at least ;-)

Cheers
