Re: Aikido minus mysticism: a step forward

It is you who is arguing from what is not said. I did not say, nor imply, that hiding the origins of your aikido knowledge was evil or malicious. I simply said that not revealing your sources implies that you are hiding them. If you are hiding something, it is reasonable to assume you have a reason for hiding. The simplest and most obvious reason that you would not say how you came about your knowledge of Aikido is that you fear that this information would weaken your position. The only way this information would weaken your position is if your knowledge of Aikido is inferior. I can therefore assume that if you do not tell us how you know about Aikido then your knowledge of Aikido and it's philosophy is inferior.
Seems logical to me
