You mistake agreeing with him with defending him, just as you mistake disagreeing with you as an attack.

Here's something you may take as an attack on you, but it isn't, it's an expression of my opinion (that your claims aren't well-founded):

You said earlier
"the problem is a lot of the symbols have two or more meanings"
but don't you see, if that's the case your observations and conclusions become highly suspect to say the least. A triangle means a hill, a spring and a rock and another triangle means that too. So here is a "map" with two triangles, and lo, over there is a tree and a spring. Proved! (Not).


That's how things were in the neolithic, everything had more than one meaning, take a look at the oldest languages and you'll see this is true, keep thinking i know nothing and over time i'll make people realise that you know nothing yourself beyond your books, your lack of knowledge is embarrassing, all your books must be outdated tiompans little helper.
