Yep ,that's the best you can manage EP , a near fifty yr old comedy sketch .
A total failure to respond to multiple examples showing that you got it wrong ,and the hilarious ."by the way, the Thom's hypothesis about the henges is now established doctrine".

The joke is that Wittry was getting his terminology and astronomy wrong in roughly the same period ,as the sketch .
The problem is ,is that you are stuck in that period never having learnt the lessons from these errors .

tiompan, you need to face up to the fact that you are going to have to share a taste of the Stonehenge money with the Cahokia henge
If the site of the Yuchi henge is located, you'll have to share it with them as well.
And I may as well inform you that EMR surveys have shown some unusual post hole patterns here in Ohio.
If they turn out to be henges, you'll have to share that Stonehenge glory and money with them as well.

As archaeology is an evolving science,
it should come as no surprise to you that its language is evolving as well.

As I type these little notes largely with my right hand,
please be to the point and concise.
Usually people believe what they want to believe until reality intrudes.

E.P. You have been provided with concise details proving that your definition(s) and understanding of the term Henge is wrong .
Your misunderstanding is based on the errors of others from fifty years ago .
Unusual post hole patterns do not a henge make .
You have had multiple examples of contemporary definitions of the term ,they have not changed much since Kendrick in the 1930's and at no time have ever been anything like what you have suggested .
Wittry was mistaken in his use of the term ,and in his understanding of the putative alignments at the original Woodhenge , as well as the actual nature of the monument ,
never mind the rubbish about "alignments "at the US site .

There is no Yuchi henge ,as with much of what you come up with , it's a fantasy , you made it up .
As well as being unable to respond meaningfully to the highlighting of your errors you have also failed to provide the most basic details about the Yuchi monuments , despite being asked .
