Tiompan, I have provided you with multiple examples of the words "henge" and "woodhenge" being used in exactly what you argue is the "incorrect" sense.
I used the word "henge" in its popular sense "Man and Impact in the Americas",
and tiompan has given me exactly zero reasons not to use the word "henge" that way again in the next edition,
with the sole exception than "that was the way the word "henge" was used earlier".
In all of this, tiompan has not provided any one word solution
to the problem of referring to stone or wooden posts set up in a circular astronomical alignment.
tiompan is correct that no one can enter the mind of anyone else.
Given that, it would be better to say that in some narrow cases
I can understand the builders' thinking far better than most people.
(I can not remember the German word for this.
At least those walking the fields or sites with me find this to be so.
This discussion started with Andre Collins' hypothesis that Gobekli Tepe was a henge.
Now not only does Andrew Collins understand that impacts took place at the start of the Holocene,
even Graham Hancock does. Based on what tiompan has written, tiompan does not.
tiompan avoids directly answering this question with a stream of abuse.
But then based on audience sizes,
what tiompan thinks does not matter too much,
except to a limited audience,
which clearly includes myself, for better or worse.
In closing this typing exercise and adrenalin elevating sparing for this morning,
this daily exchange of knowledge and abuse,
I want to note that tiompan has not examined how old henge technology is,
nor where it came from.
This failure arises from tiompan's very narrow regional view of henges.
I myself do not know if the technology did not arise in very early western hominid populations,
particularly in North Africa, where it appears the very ancient Yuchi and Ocanachee populations were,
before their migration to South America, and then on to North America bringing Clovis with them.
Of course the very idea that henge technologies may have spread along the Atlantic Coast
undoubtedly offends many peoples' racist sensitivities.
It is yet another dangerous idea.
I will also note that at least Collins' thinking is capable of evolving, in the same way that language does.
Hell. even Hancock has cut down on his drug use.
