Cerrig said "The current models of history and mathematics don't account for Johns insights" and "thanks to his groundbreaking work another piece of the puzzle is much clearer than it would have been otherwise".

I was just wondering what Cerrig thinks these insights are and what has been made much clearer. I was hoping these would be something quite specific.

Perhaps I should have made myself much clearer also :)

Some might call it stirring but I thought it would be better to have some specific statements / concepts of his to discuss in 'lively debate', rather than what I see as the current more nebulous 'He was a visionary genius' vs 'He talked a load of rot'. But perhaps it's too much to hope for ie trying to mix visionary apple talk vs scientific evidence oranges. Unless of course he said particular testable things (rather like Lethbridge and his pendulum ideas).
