So many of “Old Posters” seem to act like the Caliph Omar when “the Old Posters” disagree with a New idea about the Past? In the year 640 of the Christian era, Caliph Omar's army took the city of Alexandria, and upon learning of “a Great Library containing all the knowledge of the world” the conquering general asked Caliph Omar for instructions. Caliph Omar said of the Library's holdings:

“They will either contradict the Koran (his world view), in which case they are heresy, or they will agree with it, so they are superfluous so burn them.”1

So the conquering army used the Books of the Great Alexandrian library as tinder for the bathhouses of the city. (Shades of the Qumran discoveries)
