Liar, liar, liar. Now you quote "match", as if that is somehow supposed to equal "perfect match". You seem to think that nobody reading this would be able to spot the difference. You said "perfect match", don't try to twist your words.

Yes it is. Your attempt to worm your way out of this corner is bullshit, amateurish deceit.

You have no 'opinion' on this. There is no room for opinion when it comes to "perfect match" equalling "uncanny precision". Similarly, it is not an opinion to insist that black equals white either, or that 1 plus 1 equals 9. Both are false statements, like what you are trying to sell. I would neither expect an apology from you, nor ask for one.

Politely, while making an inaccurate statement about Bauval. And by not retracting what you said about "perfect match" equalling "uncanny precision", you've just shown that the hat fits.

And I would say that anyone who says that "uncanny precision" equals "perfect match" - especially when it comes to a man's work, a lifelong engineer whose career involves levels of precision, a researcher who has invested much time in Egyptology - is a liar. Check that, maybe English is not your first language...

Please, no smugness. You are a big boy, all growed up. I presume that this is part of your shtick, making reckless statements and then doing whatever you can to cover your ass when properly called out. To me, that is nothing less than a sign of weakness. I will go no further, because when encounter this kind of deceit, I consider it profane to engage with such people further. You are a waste of my time.
