14 hours, and that's all you could come up with.
Sorry to damp your enthusiasm but I don't think of you 24/7.
It's also extremely churlish not to thank me for your Tarot reading
Thanks for your wonderfully exact and not in the least self-serving Tarot reading.
You didn't thank me for pointing you to Baron Corvo. If you like Wilde, you will love Corvo.
Tit for tat aside, the discussion is back to what constitutes an acceptable criteria or evidence for the existence of historical characters. The 'agreed' metric (speaking like Fresco now... scary) seems to be the odds of the wandering rabbi vs the pure myth. Is the character Jeebus -- defined as some 1st century Galilean rabbi at the onset of the JC legends -- more likely than not to have existed?
You, Bill and Timur are on the 50/50 line if i understand correctly. Ed is on the less likely than not side. The rest of us, including Joe and Set
, are on the more likely than not side.
The differences have to see with how the available evidence is interpreted / accepted or rejected as truth-worthy or not. And nobody can be forced to accept any evidence. So the discussion DOES seem to end there.
Anybody else wants to chip in, or shall we call it a day?
