"Tom Brown Jr. is Not Real"?

This is my first post to the list. I attended the Standard in July 97. I learned more than I ever expected would be possible in one week. Tom Brown is a great teacher, speaker, and very quick thinking on his feet. He really reminded me of one of my Drill Instructors when I was in Boot Camp (USMC).

However, I was always preoccupied with the thoughts that Tom could have not possibly lived the type of life he tells in his stories. There are just too many tall tales about wanderings, searches, tracking mice across gravel roads, etc... I also have a very hard time swallowing the whole story about Grandfather. I have read four of his books.

For myself, because of my preoccupation with the tall tales, the fact that there are no other surviving members (Grandfather and Rick) to cooperate his story I would not be honest with myself if I continued to put up a front and believe in it.

Unfortunately Tom Brown compromises himself, his teachings and his students by continuing to go with this life story. I'm sure some of the stories he refers to are true. With all the skills Tom has he could have delivered his message another way, although it's too late now. Just had to get it off my chest.

....And as Tom says, and I quote: "If you believe every word I say, you are a fool. Prove me right or prove me wrong!"
