MA: Ah, just as I expected. We are on yet another of Scott´s "I can imagine it - so it must be true" journeys. He can not find the evidence (Google let him down?), so he dreams it up.
Why do you continue to call me CM?
SC: Already fixed.
SC: What I imagine is irrelevant.
MA: My point exactly. Your "I can imagine it - so it must be true" is irrelevant. We agree at last.
SC: Er – no. You don’t get away that easily. You cannot just clip and post my statement out of context. What MATTERS is that we have a ‘testimony’ from Brewer/Allen that alleges fraud. THAT is what you should be concerned about. And that the imperative is to obtain the truth of the matter. Are you interested in obtaining the truth?
SC: Now, I will make this easy for you. We can settle this discussion very easily.
MA: The discussion I engaged in is already settled. I asked you to provide an example of an inscription Vyse could have copied. You could not. What I got was an insight into your lively imagination - an imagination that we agree is irrelevant.
SC: Hilarious. You say that because those of us with an imagination can imagine the ways of perpetrating such a fraud that the likes of your good self, without an imagination, could not. To you perpetrating such a fraud was deemed “impossible”. The use of imagination from myself and others has shown that it wasn’t. But then you don’t want to use any imagination you might have because it might reveal to you possibilities you rather wouldn’t want to consider. In short – you are running scared of the truth and are merely here attempting to help shore up a thoroughly untenable position.
SC: All you have to do is present a single piece of evidence that proves, beyond question, that these inscriptions are genuine.
MA:Why would you ask me that? I am open to consider the available evidence and draw my conclusion from that. Evidence, mind you, not what you are able to imagine.. Hence my question - did Vyse have access to an inscription he could copy.
SC: Asks the person who is happy to accept a stone box in the early giant pyramids is a sarcophagus when no remains of any king have ever been found. Do you imagine a dead king in those stone boxes? Do you imagine just when it suits you? Your argument is like saying a person found dead with a bullet in them wasn’t shot because no one has found the gun. The gun is the logical conclusion even in its absence. If fraud was committed as the Brewer/Allan ‘testimony’ implies then Tricky Dicky would have to have had found something to copy. That isn’t imagined – it is the logical conclusion.
SC: Do that and I shall happily depart this discussion and you will never hear another peep from me on this matter again - do it not and you can be sure it will rumble on ad infinitum.
MA: No, please "peep" all you like. Watching you trying to counter Stower´s fact-based arguments with your "I can imagine it" is highly entertaining. Peep away.
SC: Stower – the guy who cannot answer three simple questions? Aye right!
