I'd like to ask whether anyone has some interesting reasons (as usual, they
don't have to have anything to do with reality { ok, so now you can tell the
truth if you know it}) why Greg _did_ put contradictions in the sources.

The obvious reason is to try and show the bias that supposed historical
references have, especially in times that had little, or later no, literacy.

Any others?
