I am saddened to see how Andrew's forum has deteriorated and taken over by a few uncouth people who think they are soooo cool! They believe they are playing devil's advocate, or pushing people off self made thrones...fulfilling their own ego- superiority needs in the process of believing they are righteously destroying others....
They are not really capable of honest intellectual pursuits..
Everybody got that? Anyone who presses an author to substantiate their research with references or to answer questions about their work that they refuse to answer isn't capable of honest intellectual pursuits
And I'm sure people wonder why this field of study is so riven with fraud and fabrication. Here's your answer.
Let me give you an example. I was accused of trying to get DNA for some scheme to become a Merovingian queen or holy ghost or whatever they imagined...No matter how I explained .....they came up with attacks....
This quote is from one of your earlier posts on this thread, Sue:"Now regarding the allusion to "another author" who touted this theme, I would remind you all that it was taken directly from my forum...a place where I freely discussed this project with others...precisely because I have a valid bloodline established back through the Des Marets to the first Merovingian kings of Jerusalem."
Tell us again how this wasn't thrown in as a subtle form of ego gratification. And I'm sure we'd all love to see a source detailing these first "Merovingian kings of Jerusalem" you've attached yourself to but no one is holding their breath for it.
finally, when I brought in Nat Geo's interest and support of the Project, they went silent and jumped to another issue....
Another quote from you:"I have been to Washington DC and the National Geographic headquarters 2 times, plus years of correspondence with them and with India...trying to get Nat Geo to take this on as one of their Genome Projects...India agreed, the Chief Minister of Kashmir agreed...but the fundamentalists made threats and the project could not be launched. I have little chance except to keep begging and hoping for a breakthrough."
I guess we're supposed to take you at your word for National Geographic's "interest and support" - and that the only thing standing in the way are "fundamentalist threats" rather than disinterest from the editorial board. BTW, anyone who buys a kit can join their Genome Project, you don't have to persuade anyone to take you on.
And while we're on the subject of the Nat Geo Genome Project it would appear that you've given some conflicting info on this forum recently. Here's a quote from a review of your book from 2008:
Roza Bal - Tomb of Jesus - Book Review by Atika Sadeeqa, December 11, 2008
By I. Jattala (California, USA) - See all my reviews
Razabal - The Tomb Of Jesus: By prof. Fida M. Hassnain and Suzanne Olsson "In the final section Suzanne Olsson presented the DNA tests, done by National Geographic's Genome Project on her, and amazing similarities with Saint Luke and others."
So which is it, Sue? Did you join the Nat Geo Genome Project or didn't you? Was it your DNA sample submitted for testing or was it your brother's? At the beginning of the this thread you indicated it was your
DNA sample, but that claim took a sharp turn when I pointed out to you that you lack a Y chromosome and then it became your brother's
sample. What's the truth, Sue? I can probably lay my hands on another copy of your previous edition, look in the appendix, and find out what the truth is, but maybe you'd like to come clean about it before I go to that extreme?
And another. It was never about the DNA...they had no interest in that beyond what they could accuse me of. The moment it got too uncomfortable and they could not sustain their positions, they switched very fast.
I've actually stayed on-point while it was you
who pirouetted madly to duck direct questions. Don't you realize the entire exchange is still visible on this thread and that anyone can read it?
That is the role they've appointed for themselves ....It's not about research or new ideas...or even old ideas or bloodlines or bad books vs. good books...it's the thrill they get from personal attacks and their perception of knocking people off "pedestals" (as they percieve them to be)...thus, they misread everything...it doesn't hurt me as much as how bad it makes them look ....
The old saying about heat and kitchens applies here, as well as pots and kettles.
I truly feel sorry for them.......ah well....I have to get back to wet carpet issues for remainder of this day..I'm sure there will be six new attacks and more nonsense when I return here again tonight or tomorrow.
That will depend entirely on you, Sue.
A friend told me last night that she got so sick of them she stayed off the forum for several years.....and she almost got lured back in....but decided against it when she saw they haven't changed.
It's just who they are and what they do...poor Andrew.
Yeah, all the egomaniacal meanies on here putting the screws to amateur Merovingian geneticists. Poor Andrew indeed.
