      So you deny the facts, and replace them by a religious/spiritual `
      belief' ?

      Well since you, after reading my comment, talk about "religious-spiritual
      beliefs" and since you did not "show your credtentials" about Anthroposophy
      as I was asking you (I'm ready to give mine) I have to argue that you
      have no knowledge about Anthroposophy.
      So AT is an anthro-list and to create some fruitful exchange it is
      necessary that the mates got , at least, a basic knowledge of Anthroposophic
      issues
      And what are we talkin about, if we have no common ground at all?
      We can only post about our disagreement about everething!
      I see no use in it.
      In my opinion , you can freely choose another place for your historical
      mumbles and I can stop here to answering your post.
