Graham, It was your challenge, that you raised, in this forum. Garrett replied, and now you say you need to publish the original debate before advancing further. All this in the full knowledge that Garrett has in the past, maintains in the present and will continue to refuse to let this happen. Perfect conditions in which to deflect attention away from the debate. Reduce it to a single point of reference and move the core of the arguement, not to C-14 dating or any other cogent issue about your work, but to Garrett's refusal to publish. Hey presto, "What is he trying to hide?".
This is a great way to squirm off the hook. And quite simply that is what you are attempting to do. People like Geoff will fail to see this tactic for what it is, but Jameske for one appreciates that this 'Publishing' is not necessary.
I have no knowledge of Garrett's earlier debate with you, and he has gone to great lengths to put his case here and now. The issues seem quite clear cut. Your provarications are nothing but a smokescreen.
I post below my recommendation to Garrett in a recent e-mail to him.
"He has also hit on his strongest, and probaply final line of defence, and that is your refusal to let him publish the e-mail debate you had with him last year. This has turned up like a mantra in all his recent postings. He is 'Spinning' the "I am open Graham, look at closed secretive Academic Orthodox Garrett". You will get no mileage from continuing the debate with him. All your efforts will be countered by the simple arguement "That we have gone over this before. Please let me publish".
And thus it came to pass. Never mind Wayne's world, welcome to Graham's world!!
