You claim "most" of my criticism is off the mark. Justify yourself. But
then, you've had the opportunity to do so for months. You have no answers
and have apparently gained little from reading this book.

As you have no response to the criticism of Rohl, you've obviously not read
the standard works.
>The fact that I tend to agree with Rohl

No. The fact that you claim the criticism is wrong and can't back your
claims up strongly points to the fact.

And what be that again, Dave?

You still haven't dealt with any criticism, Dave, ie you haven't discussed
anything yourself. All that I see is someone without anything to say, no
response, no argument, no input. Just meta-argument. Perhaps you might deal
with the problems next post.
>point, you're not qualified, as shown by your own words.
Do you mean to say that I'm not qualified to discuss for the basic validity
of the standard chronology, Dave (which, after all, is my basic interest in
this particular affair)??
