Not Churchward, silly! You must mean ChurchWOOD -- Col. James

``Our scientists today do not want facts. They hate them
because it upsets all the fairy tales they have been building

ultra-cracked theory that in some way boosts up their
mythical teaching, and the more technology, impossible
to understand, the better it is, for here is the bluff for
the public with no possible comeback."
