Yet somehow your indifference doesn’t extend to giving a straight answer — nor to keeping an adequate critical distance from such an unreliable intermediary.

Creighton,

This is a very, very simple point and I really can’t imagine why you have such difficulty in grasping it.

You don’t have access to Walter M. Allen. You’ve never spoken to him. You have no basis on which to assess his credibility. You do not know the context of his material. You are trusting blindly, and that very largely on the basis of what you’ve been told by the source you pretend to deprecate, Sitchin.

Walter M. Allen is dead. You plan to consult him via Medium?

You have, inter alia, exhibited a clunking miscomprehension of historical sources relevant to the content and reliability of the Brewer family tradition.

Your seeing no reason for something is a pretty strong hint to the rest of us that there is one. In this purely negative sense, your statements have value.

M.
