Subject: RE: BS: More pagan stuff
Most of what we know as "History" is philosophy. All are written from the philosophical perspective of the author and have often been victims of assorted translations and various fashionable "upgrades." When these modified, ancient texts are them summarized by others of the historical and scholarly bent and filtered through their personal agendas or the agenda of a group such as the Catholic church, you are left with mish-mash to the 4th power. We are now up to the 217th power when it comes to the "authoritative information and sources" regarding events of this period being discussed.

Let's not be too authoratative with each other.
