    The first website listed in this thread is the usual misrepresentative, poorly researched, often repeated malarky that is common amongst those who are simply parroting Waite and Riplinger. It is a grain of truth dressed up in a heft dose of "guilty by association" and another ten pounds of manure. In fact, the link near the bottom of the page, "The Necromancers" is basically Appendix A of Riplinger's highly refuteable book in website form.

    For the while, I have been slowly preparing a full rebuttal to that site, for inclusion in my own website. I have even shared a few bits of information with that website's owner, showing where there is false information on his pages - and the false, easily verifiable information is still there over a month later.

    What amazes me is how many people write articles like that and make websites like that, but when I ask them "How many books of Westcott and/or Hort's have you read for yourself? How much of this information have you personally verified?" the answer is invariably, "None."

    It makes me wonder if 1 Thess 5:21 in their Bible says "Prove all things....unless you're commenting on Westcott and Hort, in which case feel free to simply repeat any slander and misrepresentation you come across."

    Small correction: "The Necromancers" is from chapter 30, although Appendix A is also about Westcott and Hort.
