There was a motive for this conspiracy? And everyone, Catholics,
Orthodox, Muslims, Druze, Jews were all taking part? And the papacy
and the patriarchs and so on, and they all AGREED on the chronology,
and who would get the mathematical discoveries, and who would write
the epics and dramas with a farily unified religious outlook that was
completely gone by the 14th century but did survive in many artifacts
(statues and vases that were not discovered for a few centuries
No, this is the work of very silly persons who would rather believe
conspiracies than the evidence of everything around them, and are
annoyed that NOTHING THEY EVER DO will be as good as the work of the
ancients which survives in such large amounts and from so many rival
So no, no rational person accepts this drivel, and even the drivellers
can't come up with a motive or a mode of inventing such a thing.
