Are along the "rigorous scholarship" lines, mostly that some of the stuff referenced has other possible explanations that aren't explored or referenced thoroughly. The idea being that while it's fine to propose a new theory of how something came to be, you need to also show how your theory differs from - and preferably, provides a better explanation than - existing theory.

One thing we can be sure of by dmg (2.00 / 0) #4 Fri Nov 21, 2008 at 12:36:48 PM EST
Columbus was not the first non-native to discover America.

However luckily I get most of my education these days via the Internet, and Hip-Hop/Reggae music, so the Illuminati/Reptilians are unable to pull the wool over my eyes...

Now in fourteen hundred and ninety-two Columbus sailed to ocean - true.
But years before in Alkebu a ship set sail with a chocolate crew.
2000 years before Columbo came
the Olmecs paid tribute to their fame.
Stone heads with faces eight feet high
that the Hulk could not lifl to his thig
Though the facts historians avoid
first to arrive was the Africoid
.
