No need for caps, and it makes your response a lot easier to read.
And now, onto what you wrote:
QUITE--HOWEVER, FROM WHAT i HAV HEARD, THE TERMS OF HER WILL KEEP THINGS PRETTTY MUCH STITCHED UP.
So, once again, we're left in the realm of speculation. That's why I asked if you had any luck with the current owners of the grounds. We've gotta be careful of making mountains out of molehills, after all.
OF COURSE, BUT A BLESSING IS STILL NOT AN EXORCISM
Ok, so a blessing ceremony (intended to dissipate the spirit) wasn't an exorcism, the purpose of which is to "cast out" evil spirits. I'm sure how you can see it being interpreted as an exorcism, though.
I'm still wondering what you think the efficacy of this pagan "blessing ceremony" was, in light of your own Catholicism. Hope you can answer that one.
ASSUMED TO BE THE WICKED PRIORESS
Ok, now we're getting somewhere. However, you neglected to answer what her association to Robin's alleged grave (where the ceremony was held, if I'm not mistaken) was.
NO DOLLARS OR NOT BIG SHOTS
So you think Lady Armatyge discriminated against you on the grounds that you guys are a small, local society without much money? Are you suggesting that she rejected you because you couldn't cough up the dough the other guys (might've) been able to give her?
IT WAS ORINALLY HISTORIOCAL AND STILL GOT REFUSED, THE PARANOMAL CAME BY LATER FROM OUTSIDE SOURCES
Who were these "outside sources"? Are you implying the group is no longer historical?
CANT BE BOTHERED AT THE MO
Well, when you can be bothered explaining the Hepworth connection (especially as you
raised it), I'd love to hear about it.
NO THANKS IF ITS SET IN RICHARD 1 ITS BOUND TO BE TOSH
Sounds like it is set during that time, going by a synopsis of the movie
It is late 12th century England and Sir Robin Longstride, Earl of Huntington, (Russell Crowe) has returned to his northern English village after fighting in the Third Crusade. Upon arrival, the nobleman and his servant discover the oppression caused by the new Sheriff of Nottingham (Matthew Macfadyen). Sir Robin frees his home village from tyranny and corruption in England, restoring peace and justice to England. Robin must also win the affection of the recently widowed Lady Marian (Cate Blanchett) while leading his Merry Men of Sherwood Forest.
As to settings though, I am interested in this historical connection. Here's something
about the earliest references to Robin Hood:
The oldest references to Robin Hood are not historical records, or even ballads recounting his exploits, but hints and allusions found in various works. From 1228, onwards the names 'Robinhood', 'Robehod' or 'Hobbehod' occur in the rolls of several English Justices. The majority of these references date from the late 13th century. Between 1261 and 1300, there are at least eight references to 'Rabunhod' in various regions across England, from Berkshire in the south to York in the north.
Do you agree with this?
There is also some dispute
over the authenticity of an epitaph said to be Robin Hood's, as it wasn't written in the Middle English of the time. What are your thoughts on this?
NOT IMPORTANT THOUGH YOU WER RUDE FIRST!
Considering I was only asking that you erase your insults with an apology, the "not important" thing is a tad dismissive. If I was rude to you first, then kindly show where and I'll address it. Otherwise, you're hurling accusations at me. Again.
I would have to agree 100% with that Barbara. Speculations are NOT fact - he's said that himself now.
Yes, I said it. Not Barbara.
But surely it is just speculation too when a person explains 'ghosts' and 'vampires' as being 'demonic entities' sent by the devil (no less!) to fool the living into believing that they are really the spirits of deceased persons! Lord please save us!
David, that's obviously a personal attack on my religious beliefs which I explained (with Scriptural justification) elsewhere. You're referring to my largely Protestant views on spirits (although, why you threw vampires into it, I'm not sure). Here's a relevant reminder of the House Rules
4.1 Reasoned discussion and argument is encouraged. However, if discussions are reduced to personal abuse and/or personal attacks, posts containing such content will be deleted and a warning issued to the Forum member posting such content.
And besides, by the logic you're using here, one could easily dismiss anyone's
religious views, including your own Wicca. Especially in light of your claims about "ancient" manuscripts. Try to have a bit more courtesy, David. That's all I'm asking.
I'm not sure what the word 'tosh' means in Yorkshire lingo, but if it means what I think it means, then it surely applies to that!
I'm familiar with the "tosh" term, though I doubt it exists solely in Yorkshire.
Instead of sniping at my beliefs, I suggest you be more constructive here. For example, what issue do you take with my religious beliefs about spirits? What are your own views on them?
