I read that when it first came out [In reply to] Can't Post

I disagreed with it then, and I disagree with it now. I think it is a classic case of someone starting out with a particularly point of view, and then setting out to "prove" that point of view, ignoring anything that contradicts it. It reminds me more of the hundreds of legal briefs that I have read than of an objective scholarly paper.

'But very bright were the stars upon the margin of the world, when at times the clouds about the West were drawn aside.'
