So that really is him then, the infamous Stahrwe I've heard so little about. Meh. Already I can see that the reputation this guy has among the Booktalk members is well deserved, as right off the bat he debuts with a post containing some misinformed views.
For instance, as per Tat's post I deduce Stahrwe actually had me in mind and so has obviously confused me with Aronra. While I myself consider that a compliment as I am a huge admirer of the Aron's, I don't think the actual
Aronra would find this conflation too flattering. What Stahrwe's basis is for making this conflation, I do not know, but whatever that basis is, it is clearly mistaken.
By "issue a program on original sources", I can only deduce that Stahrwe has in mind one of the possibilities I tossed around on this forum and on Facebook back when my Youtube channel was shut down. That idea was to possibly compose the primary source material I've gathered into a topical index in PDF format.
To my recollection, I never stated this to be anything more than a possibility, and I certainly NEVER
set a deadline on it, so this "it should be out by now" claim is an arbitrary and misinformed expectation.
And Tat is correct, it was myself that had made the comment that the nutjobs were coming out over at Booktalk, as one can clearly see my name as the author of the quotation in Robert's post. And I said this because I saw an Al Sylvester coming on threads concerning Acharya's book and promoting his views on alchemy which had nothing to do with her book, and he even went so far as to claim he has the formula for making the philosopher's stone, sans one last ingredient or last step or something to that effect.
Then I saw username "a gnostic" coming on there claiming rebirth is a real experience and that Jesus was a magician initiated into the Egyptian mysteries, etc.
And then there was a moment when ScoobyNubis seemed to me to be trying to get a foot in the door for the possibility of miracles.
So yeah, that's only three, so, even though my original comment gave no numerical value or even terms like "a lot", I suppose it could be taken as a bit of a hyperbole. But whatever, that's beside the point. I'm guessing the inference from the statement that Stahrwe finds it "interesting that RT thinks the nuts are coming out of the woodwork" is that Robert himself is a nut. Perhaps that guess is wrong, but I've seen that there's no love loss between Robert and Stahrwe. While even Robert and I do not see eye to eye on everything, I've certainly found the contents of his posts, even the ones I disagree with, to be rather thought provoking and not exactly what I would consider 'nutty'. But whatever, to each his own I guess. Welcome to FTN.
