Such as here? With the either agree nicely or don't post at all OR ELSE attitude here? lol
That is supposed to be your preferred version of level? lol
Like I said each has good and bad points.
What you "Believe" is evidence and what truly is evidence can be vastly different.

Again, saying circles drawn on distorted pictures is evidence of how the AE DID it doesn't wash. Feet and inches were "definitely" used due to number crunching ISN'T evidence. Those are wishful "possibles" until some real cultural evidence is put forth.
I have seen many "experts" make claims and then resort to their claim as "proof/evidence" of the claim being real. Those usually don't last at a place that wants evidence instead of special pleading or Sesame Street(play nice and everyone gets a trophy) mindset.

Thanks for proving a point. Special pleading to "win" points. I used to post here lots more then I do now. Got tired of no evidence and lots of blind-faith beliefs passed off as evidence and any who didn't agree with it being attacked and/or banned for not "playing nice".
As one of the "regulars who make it their mission to attack the HOM" I would expect no less then for you to be wrong in this as well. I haven't been a "regular ruling the roost" as you so childishly put it. So I have no dog in this race. Perhaps you can be more accurate in the future with your assumptions and accusations! thanks

Actually they just excised the tumor that was fantasy and blind-faith belief and made a tomb for it called "Alternative Geometry and Numerology".
That way the Quality posts could be enjoyed without wading thru the Quantity crap.
