That's right, Ani. Everybody likes a good cohesive story with an interesting plot. Nobody wants to think that a big chunk of 1500+ years of history in a major part of the world is based on a pure sham. This is not to argue any position that's being addressed in the other thread, which is dominated by a myopia far beyond what can be expected of normal humans. It's the entire conception of history as a 'coherent' narrative that's getting rattled, here, and it's that upon which the myopia (lol) is so focused (lol, lol).
