Thanks for your compliments.....  I am happy that you appreciate my thread of thought here as 'scholarly work'.  Yes,  I am doing quite a bit of research and analysis here,  that I have not seen anywhere else.  Just keep reading, with an open mind,  suspending belief or disbelief,  and I think we will come to more agreement in the end.

I appreciate your advice about effective writing, and the standards of excellence that we must observe to be excellent writers.  The best writers have indeed done the 'dirty work' of research and analysis for their readers, and are presenting their work as a tasty feast to be consumed by their readers.  But alas, most of the readers are lazy,  and do not appreciate the dirty work and hard labor of the excellent writer, so they find petty faults with it, and criticize it to no end, while being blind to the truths it contains.

Excellent writers deserve excellent readers, and vice versa, but sadly both are very rare, and seldom find each other, and they are not even recognized as excellent by the vast majority of lazy and self-involved readers.

Still, we must endeavor to excel in our writings, for our own good and well as concern for the good of others. Cheers

I am familiar with some of that history, though I have never examined the teachings to the degree you clearly have - you are actually doing scholarly work here, and I really appreciate that. The only reason I am merely a very interested onlooker rather than a participant here is the one but fundamental difference between our positions: you believe, I do not...

Hello GM

I strongly feel that whenever serious and deep understanding of complex subjects are a necessity, LASS (long attention span syndrome) is better, because the writer has done all the 'dirty' job very meticulously. But then again, it requires skilful use of language so effectively that it holds the reader's attention. It has to have a face, introductory appeal, a proportionate attractive body, and feet (conclusion) to make it stand its ground firmly. Clarity is the first essential, brevity the second. Brevity can be sacrificed for the sake of clarity, and not vice versa. My take, that is. 

I wonder if the Bible has not been rendered the poorer on account of exclusion of Jesus' Truths. Ironically, He was massacred for revealing a truth, with such inhuman cruelty that the only other option  for a Christian retribution was to worship him by raising him to godly status. Cheers

  That would be me in that group ...but I really do believe that Karma comes through pretty clearly in the teaching of Jesus in his parables
