In Halbertsma's work elements can be found that are in agreement with the 'psychology' (or 'spirit') of the OLB, but other elements are in strong conflict with it.
You focus on the overlapping elements, but ignore the conflicting ones. That is because you want to believe that you are a 100% right, rather than consider a sliding scale of probablity that you are.
Halbertsma had a few favorite topics, or even obsessions (example: Hindelopen), of which we find no trace in the OLB.
I don't talk about psychological arguments, but of real arguments (linguistic, theological, philosophical, geographical, etc.). Hindeloopen got its importance during the Hanseatic times. So it didn't fit in the story.
