I need to protest to the moderator of this group about Peter Kirk.  He is 
becoming increasingly rude and contentious in a fashion that has nothing to do 
with scholarly discourse.  Every post of mine seems to get up his hackles.  Now 
he is actually accusing me of malfeasance!  

 Let me quote from p.235

Who are you now?  Rohl's lawyer?  You are carrying this whole "Rohl thing" 
you have got too far.  You would be better off saving this kind of stuff for the 
Yahoo group dedicated to this author.  Rohl, "Pharaohs and Kings", page 364:  
"At the beginning of our journey back in time I promised you that we would 
stand together before the cult statue of Joseph and look upon the likeness of 
this remarkable legendary figure from the past.  With the advent of modern 
computer technology I am able to keep my promise."

So, Mr. Peter Kirk--where is the libel?  And what does Rohl's assertion that 
he has actually found a statue of Joseph have to do with Manetho?  Also, I 
suggest you give up "lawyering" as your previous posts have shown that you don't 
even know the difference between civil and criminal law.

About some things I don't have any doubts.  Yet I also doubt that I have made 
"quite a lot of statements" that contain those words.  But if I found a 
statue that looked to be like that of an Asiatic at Avaris (where Asiatics lived 
for a long time) I would certainly not go out on a limb declaring "this must be
