Excellent points and S&F for you !
I'm in complete agreement that anyone that gives themselves a self-appointed title needs to present the required credentials or verification to justify such a decision. If not, then we can only assume it's just so much hot air.

Which is the point I brought up in my earlier post ... individuals such as the ones you mentioned have always loomed large in mankinds history ... take Da Vinci, Newton, Einstein and even Ghenghis Khan, Napolean and Hitler as additional examples.
So I fail to see or understand why now all of a sudden, individuals are making such a song and dance about their "special abilities and dispositions" as if it was something new that was only now making itself felt and was further being likened to some type of human evolutionary change that was only now manifesting itself.
