Please, list moderators, how long do I have to suffer this kind of 
abuse simply for following the scholarly method of critically reading 
what other scholars have written and drawing conclusions from it?

.. All you have to do is show some evidence, rather than opting for 
authority, but you almost never do....


.. All the literary evidence...

PK: Except for that which you have arbitrarily chosen to reject. 
Exactly what literary evidence are you referring to? Do you have 
better evidence of its dating than I have given for Hebrews and LXX 

.. from the cultural background of the area goes for creation out of 
pre-existent matter...


Impute circularity
Invoke authority
Go off in tangents
Impose a priori theological understandings 
Avoid ancient understandings
Ignore both archaeology and epigraphy

>so shut up!

Impressive scholarship, Peter.
