- Dec 4, 2007hi tom, alli remind members to stay on our topics as much as possible, personal remarks are ok. our focus is not on religion or politics, both of which cause division and conflict. we were discussing the tablets of dr niven found in mexico. somehow, this got us to churchward, who had spoke of them. this took us on a tangent to another author who had cited churchward. the book given in the subject has nothing to do with precolumbian_inscriptions, and churchward's work has only a remote connection, that of tablets he cited, and his references to a pacific mother culture.nobody is preaching here, we try to limit references and remarks that may be offensive to some. we would do the same if buddha was maligned, or his doctrine faulted . there are other groups and forums to dispute religious claims and dogma. they are not permitted here, please return to our primary focus.mikehost----- Original Message -----From: Tom HebertSent: Monday, December 03, 2007 8:24 AMSubject: [Precolumbian_Inscriptions] Re: James Churchward and "The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold"
I watched the video and can sympathize with your concerns. But I was
wondering what your position is on the Churchward books. You
mentioned that both Acharya S and your great-grandfather were cherry
pickers. Am I understanding this correctly?
