I agree that it is silly to compare the research into Erdnase with curing diseases or other life changing research. It is certainly not of the same importance, not even close. But that doesn't mean to find out who Erdnase was is useless. Understanding history is a worthwhile pursuit.

Understanding history (sometimes sadly not learning from it) is one thing.

However, I don't think discovering who Erdnase was is going to stop wars, cure cancer, end famine and de-nuclearise the planet.

The funniest scenario of course would be that Erdnase was just some complete random.......causing the Erdnase community to stand, jaws dropped, saying "who the fkkk was he"?

By the way, I've absolutely nothing against older literature. Expert Card Technique was my first bible - and for what its worth, I truly believe its' content and quality to bury some of the utter tripe in EATCT.

But nobody ever claimed that discovering Erdnase would stop wars, cure cancer, end famine,disease, and rid the planet of nuclear weapons. That doesn't mean scholars should stop looking for his true identity, or quit looking for that other writer who might have written Shakespeare's plays.

By your logic Merc Man, what is the point in another biography of Winston Churchill? Let the diplomats, doctors, and scientists worry about that other pesky stuff.
