Thank you Jason.
This is a reference to my original research into Britain's great megalithic monuments of the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods--- above all, Stonehenge and Avebury.
Since I wrote those pieces I have continued and expanded the research, and various publications are imminent in specialised archaeological books.
But I'll say this in short:
the origins of those ancient monuments are readily explained in terms of religion, fertility religion--but it is hard for christian archaeologists to see this because of their religious bias. It seems to need a hardened atheist to solve these ancient mysteries that depend so much on inferring knowledge about lost religions from the symbolic and constructional eveidence that is available for those who have open minds to understand.
I just finished reading through several of your articles on your web site and found them very informative. I plan on crossing the pond to visit Stonehenge next spring and will refer to your work again before I go. Thank you for the great information!

Hello. Im glad to be in the group. I don't know much about a lot of things, but im always willing to learn. I hope to find out more about the science about Evolution, and I hope you can help me out sometime.
I've found in my own research into common creationist arguments that they're very slow to come up with new "refutations" most of their arguments are 50+ years old, and even more are based on a high-school level understanding of scientific theories (or even worse, straw-man versions thereof). The only explanation is one of a failing of education or the strength of indoctrination, the believe the scripture over the science because that's how they want the world to be. The only answer is stronger standards in science education and larger public support of science educators.
