Making such a claim seems more than a little arrogant and in my opinion damages his credibility somewhat in light of such a fanciful and outrageous claim.

Just my thoughts
Michael,
While important, your argument is irrelevant to the Anthos vs. CrossFit situation. If the subject of CrossFit's originality is that important to you I'd start a new thread in another section of this board to discuss it. To get you started though, I'm going to point out Greg Glassman has never made the claim you're arguing against, so if you do want to start that thread and think I'm mistaken, you should offer a reference.
