    Email can be verified by headers. It can also be checked an confirmed if altered. Word of mouth is reliant on the parties involved.

    Nope ... e-mail can be altered ... phone calls can be recorded.

    So, neither work right?

    E-mails have been used to prosecute just as well as recorded phone calls.

    Thing is it is illegal to record phone calls in many states without permission.
    The same thing doesn't apply to emails yet.

    So unless your theory is that humans didn't have hand to hand combat for the first 124,000 years of their existence, then I don't see why you should choose 6,000 years out of a hat as the birth of unarmed combat.

    Any reason why 6,000 years specifically? Its an oddly round number...

    Thank you for this question ... 6,000 years ago seems to be the time that man began to engage in organized Combat in Ethiopia. As I have said, it could have been earlier ... but in any case, it seems to be the time that the Medjay came into existence as well. There are some other reasons, but I don't remember all the reasons.

    :godtroll:

    Nope ... I am not Christian. That is a common mistake to think that all friends and students of Comba-Tai are Christian and black and that 6,000 years is based on Christian chronology.

    I can appreciate why you perceived this. No problem, but it is not true. While I may be wrong, which I doubt, it is not for the reasons you stated.

    Good point ... I can not argue with this.

    If you want his e-mail, I guess you will have to call him...I will not provide it. No one ithat I know is deserving of the disrespect that is shown on this site. Have I been disrespectful? Yes I have. But it has been in response to the environment that Bullshido often creates. I thought you like that kind of thing.

    I have offered my arguments for why I believe. Am I absolutly right? I honestly don't know. But I contend that what is thought to be a 6,000 year old history of what people call Comba-Tai is facinating to me.

    Honestly:

    I don't know what is going on with the Peer Review or the Publication of the Book. I gave you what I know.

    I admit that some of you guys have made good points. I was really impressed with this debate.

    I don't however agree that your presuppositions are right.

    I am open to further investigation on this matter as I think we will soon see.

    I honestly do not believe that conventional scholarship is as honest as you believe as it relates to African History... Ivan van Sertimer, Martin Bernal, Richard Poe and John G. Jackson agree.

    But you are probably right, I am just a paranoid and race bating. There you have it, have fun.

    I do not dispute the core basis anymore than I dispute the fact Ed Gein influenced Psycho - but the beginning and the end are so far apart that any attempts to link them in a serious manner is laughable at best and academically dishonest at worst
