This question and its exploration really fall outside the parameters  
of B-Greek discussion:

FAQ: "B-Greek is not a forum for general Bible issues, except insofar  
as they may bear specifically upon interpretation of a particular  
Greek text,
Neither is it a forum general or specific hermeneutical or  
theological issues."

If someone wishes to respond to James Bowick, please do so OFF-LIST.
