I have no intention, nor am I attempting to make a "desperate bid to turn this discussion into yet another fruitless argument about beliefs." I apologize if you believe otherwise, for it is not my intention at all. When I state that the builders of Stonehenge 'knew' there was a source of spirit and they 'knew' spirit must combine with body to form life, I am not saying what they 'knew' was true. I'm saying as far as they were concerned, they 'knew' it. I do not see why they would spend the great amount of time and effort to construct what they did across Britain if all they did was 'believe' or have 'faith' or 'hope'. I conclude they sincerely 'knew'. They could very well have been wrong, but that doesn't mean a person can't think they 'know' something. and I certainly have no issue with that. Anyone can think they 'know' whatever their heart desires. Also, I am in complete agreement with you that "whether or anyone else "agrees" with those ideas/beliefs is wholly irrelevant to the discussion." It is not my intention to input my beliefs here at all, unless I am asked directly to do so.

Lastly, I agree that "the only ideas/beliefs in question here are those that might be deduced from the evidence of the structure itself, the ideas/beliefs of the people who built it." That is precisely what I am presenting in my findings and conclusions. My own beliefs are not included, and there is no intent to do so. From ny reasearch and analyses the evidence at Stonehenge and surrounding landscape make it clear that the people believed in spirit, and that as far as they were concerned they 'knew' where it came from and returned. We may conclude that they believed this, and they were wrong, but from the evidence it appears that their conclusion was that they 'knew' it. That is not my opinion nor belief. It is the conclusion from objective analysis and deduction from the evidence.
