No, it’s not better. It’s supposition that the story was passed down accurately or passed down at all.

Creighton,

I have already dropped the heaviest of hints that I am not restricted on this question to material already in the public domain and I have already told you how out of your depth you are on this issue. I suggest you take the hint and be told.

In a letter dated 26 June 1981, Allen gave a summary of Humphries Brewer’s career, including the claim that Brewer had worked for Vyse. Guess what he didn’t mention? That’s right! He didn’t mention forgery.

Not until a letter dated 4 August 1983 (which explicitly mentions Sitchin) did the forgery claim turn up.

Work it out.

Creighton,

I could write ‘1954’ now. It wouldn’t mean it was written in 1954.

Funny how selective your are with your suspicions.

That Allen’s notes were written in 1954 is unproven supposition.

Supposition. See above.

> Stop telling porkies.

Oh. Really. I’m telling lies, am I?

This being your notion of improving the tone, evidently.

That it was written down in 1954 is supposition. See above.

> SC: Certainly no letters from Brewer's family have been

That “Brewer’s testimony” was passed down to Allen is supposition. See above.

Why did Allen not mention this tradition when he told a contact in this country all about Humphries Brewer’s supposed involvement with Vyse? Why did this aspect of the story emerge only after Allen had read a summary of Sitchin’s claims?

Don’t hurt yourself.

Yes, you relied entirely on the known liar Sitchin, until you were goaded in doing what a competent researcher would have done in the first place.

No, Creighton, I don’t know this. Neither do you. Neither does anyone. It’s SUPPOSITION.

(I use caps in deference to your belief that it improves understanding.)

Creighton,

Do try to understand.

You don’t have Brewer’s word.
