Won't help Jonathan.

Also the Bbaylonian scribes were scholars, however, not of the modern kind.
Neither was Luther. Again, it has to do playing by the rules. The rules will
be changing, yes, and at a time you will have to conclude that according to
modern standards I will no longer be considered a scholar .. Luther is
accoridng to modern standards not a contemporary scholar, rather the subject
of scholarship. I think I play according to present rules for the game. If
you follows the rules of yesterday, you are not part of the game. That may
change according to circumstances, but that is as it is today.
