You really take the cake, Neil.
Do you think your behavior recommends you as a 'scholar,' your online moniker that you are so boastful of? Hardly! After all these years you still have not learned a sense of fair-mindedness and still lack intellectual honesty. You can't even keep your story straight between sentences, let alone posts.
'There's no room for dogmatism in chronology'; 'the WT is dogmatic'; 'the WT is not dogmatic.'
'I don't know the identity and qualifications of the celebrated WT scholars'; 'I am aware of their identity as a group' (but you still cannot tell me what qualifications any of them has to merit, in your view, the term 'scholar').
Not only that, but you don't know who the WT researchers are but somehow you know they don't include Furuli who is the only one who has published that 'research' and the only one who, according to you, alleges there are others.
You admit that you have no competence to examine Furuli's/the WT's claims yourself nor the research I have done, but then you have the audacity to pronounce my (and Marjorie Alley's) findings and criticisms as invalid but Furuli's/the WT's as sound!
You? A scholar? Your online behavior belies that claim, Neil. You remain a stuffed shirt and have no business speaking about matters you do not understand. All the articles, books and papers you boast about having read have done you not one iota of good - you are still unable to have a reasoned, honest, scholarly dialog about this subject and it is little wonder I and others get exasperated with you.
My experience with Jonsson is that he is incompetent in using scholarly sources. I have caught him out before
Really? You're not still banging on about that John Aquila Brown nonsense, are you? You were the one who got it wrong, you know.
Doug, this 'scholar' joined the forum in 2001 and has a long history here. It's not the same person as the recent imposter who claimed he'd forgotten or lost his password or something and had to make a new account. Unfortunately, the thread has been removed now so I can't refer back to it.
