    While re-reading Lib Lobby And The Am Right by Mintz I encountered a review of Mr Olivers work. He apparently understood the value of Christianity but eventually felt it incompatable with science because he conceived of the Earth as being a billion yrs old.

    It would be interesting to know how he understood the Galileo case. He is an interesting personality none the less.

    Acc to Mintz, Oliver tended to combine Med Classical Civilisation with Western European Civ while Spengler perceived a greater distinction between the two.

    I would be willing to wager that Prof Oliver did not under stand the Galileo case.
