Thanks for posting those quotations from Brand's book Glenn. I think
it's very clear, contrary to Art's claims, that Brand indeed has an agenda.
I also have no problem with someone studying something or looking for evidence
for something based on their philosophical or religious beliefs. We all have
our presuppositions. But I will claim that when someone attempts radical
reinterpretations which just happen to support their deeply-held religious
beliefs, we have to examine their claims carefully.
