    No, Eric, it doesn’t contradict the next post. The next post says that if anyone defines the “goodness” of something by how old it is, then that is foolishness. This post says that if something was once wise it is still wise irrespective of how old it is. It is not the oldness that makes it good, it is its inherent wisdom. The two posts are in complete agreement, and so in this instance does represent “a coherent body of thought”
