What are you talking about? A "claim" or "hypothesis" is not "evidence". Rather, evidence is what is used to form the basis of claims and hypotheses. So if I see what looks like a paint run from a vertical block down into the junction with the adjacent block, I might state the hypothesis that "it seems that the paint was applied after the block was installed in situ". The hypothesis is not the evidence, the paint run is the evidence.

Likewise, when we see evidence of all kinds of ancient garbage at the quarries, and evidence of humans who inhabited the place, records of what they ate, when they bathed, and instructions to deliver a product, but ZERO physical evidence, even in the huge volume of ancient garbage, of any shred of tools or equipment related to quarrying at what is widely believed to have been one of the largest quarry operations in ancient history, that's evidence that allows one to formulate hypotheses that maybe, just maybe, things ain't quite what we've been told all these years. The hypothesis isn't the "evidence", it's the conspicuous lack of specific evidence in the midst of all the other evidence found in those excavations that spurs the hypothesis.

Show me a post where I've said my "opinion" is better than anyone else's "opinion". Meanwhile, how is that related to the current debate about the quarries? You and yours have not expressed an "opinion"; you clearly have expressed a "claim", a staunchly held claim, which you not only contend is unquestionably true (ergo "indisputable"), but which has pushed several of you to become obsessed with issuing incessant insults and sarcasm to anyone who disagrees with you.

The readers will make their own decision.

I rest my case.

What? I don't expect ANYONE to change their opinion based on my opinion, let alone the SCA. I have never tried to change the SCA's (or "Mainstream's") opinion. And the SCA hasn't tried to change my opinion. You, and a few others here, are the only ones obsessed with trying to change someone's opinion.



> IS telling someone to ignore the issue part of your 'scientific method'???

No, but telling someone to ignore me when they insist on harrassing me dozens of times each day IS part of my method to keep the library quiet so the rest of us can study. When have I ever told "someone to ignore the issue"?



> You are simply unwilling to answer my question.

I don't even know what your question is. You refer to a hypothesis as if it was "evidence". First you insist I've made several "claims", and then you say I'm too wishy washy to commit to anything except polite conditionals like "it seems" and "perhaps". Frankly, your repeated illogical questions are a moving target and have lost their worthiness for an answer.



Look, I don't know if you're coming up with this stuff on your own or whether you're being coached privately, but you're being steered very badly and you're being taken farther off the rails with each passing day.

But by all means, keep digging yourself deeper.
