Michael, thanks for your reply. Your last statement here proves my point. When we say that there is “not much evidence from history that this is possible,” we recognize that there is such a thing as objective historical evidence, that it is incontrovertible, it is not subjective nor open to a personal interpretations. Indeed, we appeal to history as authoritative in settling disagreements. On that we agree.
