    We all hear that "possession is 9 tenths of the law." I don't know if that is true, but it appears the Strats "own" Shakespeare right now because they took ownership in the mid 1600's based on the name appearing on the First Folio.

    There is no evidence anywhere that Willy Shakspur ever owned a copy of a play, nor wrote one. But the name "William Shakespeare" does appear on them.

    There is no evidence Willy ever owned a book, or wrote anything but a few scribbles there and there.

    Baconians have a wealth of circumstantial evidence, and many people have been convicted of crimes by circumstantial evidence. Many of those were innocent.

    To "prove" in a Court of Law that Willy Shakspur did not write the works of William Shakespeare would be a nearly impossible burden. It would be a moot point to attempt.

    Same goes for "proving" Bacon wrote the works. Unless, of course, we found the body of handwritten Shakespeare manuscripts with notes in Bacon's handwriting along with his own papers. In a Court of Law, we need the Body.

    So we are attempting to sway public opinion. And even then if you ask 100 people who wrote Shakespeare, over 90 will probably say "Shakespeare" did, and not care one little bit if he didn't. Now the Oxies have taken over the lead with the few who do question the authorship because they have a money engine behind them luring in celebrities and others who want to be in that exclusive club. We who are Baconians see the facts, but are a loosely connected not-so-wealthy group of individuals that accept the evidence as discovered and revealed.

    I believe we are making progress, but we need to be realistic in that proving anything is burden likely to fail, but we can possibly persuade many of those who care about Truth that Bacon was probably the author, or at least the leader of authors, who created the works of Shakespeare.

     

    Sometimes possession is 9 tenths of the flaw.

  2. That's A. L. Rowse, a Stratfordian  embarrassment.

    When the prima facie Oxfraudians call themselves "Legally trained Oxfraudians" along with their "imposing, intimidating photograph of the gavel," as Christina states,  it makes me laugh and think of Putin's  pernicious invaders in Ukraine that he spins as  a "Peacekeepers Operation."

     

    One thing I can say about Francis Bacon  is he did a pretty good job of revealing and concealing his Authorship so that every  generation  would have a chance to engage and test out  his notions on Mediocra Firma and The Four Idols while undergoing the  inquiry and treasure hunt.

    What does anyone think of the use of Stylometrics by some researchers  as a way of determinating Authorship?

    I skimmed the paper quickly. I didn't see Dodd mentioned. It is in the paper he makes the statement about Dodd?

    5.4 After the Fall – The Baconian  Enlightenment  Postponed 
    For the more adventurous  and  patient  reader  there  is  a  mine  of  supplementary information  i n  the writings  of  Alfred Dodd, but be warned that Dodd was a fanatical believer in the claim that Bacon wrote the Shakespeare plays. If one can sift out the credulity and hero worship from Dodd's writings, there is a useful quantity of historical information that can be separated from Dodd's thesis.)
     
     
     
     
  4. I just read an article by James North who I believe may have been the managing editor & Webmaster for The FBSociety in the 2010 time period
     
    He argues that Bacon was not  a Freemason and that Alfred Dodd cannot be trusted because he is over
    enthusiastic that Bacon wrote Shakespeare.
