Thank you Salpy. That article seemed the most balanced of any I had found.
Yes Asterikos, I agree. The loss of the library of Alexandria is very very heartbreaking for everyone nowadays I think.
Sadly, it brought a memory to my mind that's been tucked away for at least 20 years! It emotionally brought me back bit to a memory of of my evangelical neighbors who's kids I grew up with who were encouraged to crack their "satanic" KISS records!
I'll never forget, begging them to let me have their limited edition complete 4 record set where each had foldout posters and a different member of KISS on the cover. I literally felt grieved that day as an 8 year old and even cried out when they cracked the first one on the street playing frisbees with it
. I couldn't figure out why someone would destroy something that was meaningful to another person rather than just let them have it!
All because it was "satanic". Their son later pursued a career in rock music and for a while got hooked on heroin.
Parents, Let this be a warning!!
