Keep twisting and eventually you will show yourself to be right!
The text which you orig "Why would you have to go to europe to find someone able to recognise a pit furnace from a photograph? I'd have thought thousands of americans had that ability, especially as there are plenty of *historic* pit furnaces in NA which are not as old as Old World pit furnaces, and are well-attested in the historical record".
But didn't I write of this statement tha tit was " ... grossly misleading at best. Inger called it a 'lie' but it is saved from that by the words "I'd have thought".'
You may recall I have accused you of using a deceptive argument.
One of your problems is you are ignoring my repeated statements that your use of the words "I'd have thought". I've stated and restaed this now several times and yet you would still have it that I am calling you are a liar. Well, I am now, but not for the reasons you claim.
The original discussion has ALWAYS been about what Conner's chose to do in 1970. Trying to shift it away from that date is dishonest.
The lie is that I have called you a liar.
That idea may be too complicated for you.
