Same old stuff George, isn't it. Anything that strays from nice safe "history" is fantasy to you. Nothing new there. The problem with that is it doesn't answer the question "what was going on", and it never will. It can't, and you can't either. Too much reliance on the accepted model of history to allow for the likes of John Michell.
The current models of history and mathematics don't account for Johns insights, but that's because they are limited and incomplete. That's where your stance breaks down, and Johns continues. He had the vision to see past those limitations and share his observations. He never pretended to be perfect, just willing to be a bit different.
John added something to that incomplete picture, and thanks to his groundbreaking work another piece of the puzzle is much clearer than it would have been otherwise. This is something that would never have been achieved by the kind of attitudes seen on this thread, but then again when did ridicule and ignorance ever achieve anything.

You will have your chance to spread some more bile on some original and very different research quite soon, if you can. I look forward to that with some curiosity. It will be interesting to see what is dragged up to try and stamp on what's coming. I'm sure the attempt will be made. Best of luck with that.

Nigel Swift; not talking about you, for one simple reason, why would I ?
