Sure, it is very interesting to discuss. That is why I said we have
discussed it and surely can continue to discuss it. I encourage as
much discussion on the topic as we can muster.

Hmmm, I am not sure what made you think there was any offence,
Melissa. Let me put such thoughts to rest right now since I believe
you may have misread my intent... I see absolutely no reason for any
kind of offence. On the contrary, I very simply and bluntly was
stating that there were some historically questionable materials in
the link that I felt should be discussed, so I pointed them out. This
is not to say you should not have posted the link, but if a link is
posted they are open for discussion, right? Otherwise, what would be
the function of having the link?
We also encourage you to search through our own archives for subjects
like this and bring the issues up again if you feel they are of
interest to you. And, if you look to your left on the forum home page
you will also see pages for links, files, and a database that may have
some interesting materials to browse.
If you have questions or comments concerning the page you offered, or
my observations about the page, you are very welcome to bring them up.
That is part of what we are here for.

Very true, and I was discussing just as you suggest we should. That is
why I have asked questions and raised issues. Now it is your turn to
do the same ;)
I would like to give you fair warning. We do sometimes get in an
academic mode here when we talk about the historical side of things
(which is part of our focus). This means we can be a bit blunt and
direct, and it may be best not to read overly much emotion into posts
in those cases. If I say something like "I am not aware of any
evidence to support _____" or "The texts we have suggest _____", I am
not being grumpy or offended.... think of it instead as a chance to
present contrary evidence or to test your view against what can
actually be demonstrated historically.

Ah, I can understand that. I have been in the same position. Thank you
for explaining. I wish I had read this one before answering the post I
just sent... consider my post right before this one null ;)
