And only science gets us to that argument.
Religion takes you aside, reads you a shoddy translation of what was
seen, long ago, through one of the windows, and asks you to recite what
you were just told.
There is no argument.
And, no map to direct you to the original house is ever admitted to
exist, in case you want to be argumentative.
And all scholarship never uses primary sources.
