That is pretty low. Let me then add that some people
are indeed prone to anti-intellictalism. If you make
up things on your own based upon the wrong or
incomplite conjucture then that would be wrong no matter how
much you wished for to be true.
<br><br>>>>Please be more attentive to my statements of "It could
be", they are a VERY important part of the English
language that set the entire premise of all that
follows.<<<<br><br>In the case of Manichaeism and Marcionites "it could
be.." can not be put up due to entire data that is
available on Marcionites and Manichaeism. If you did you
are only working from the superficial level. You can
speculate all you want but if it is based upon the wrong or
incomplete conjusture it shouldn't even be mentioned.
