LMB, you can't talk about begging the question. You started by asking
detractors of the DH to read P. Well, that begs the question of what P might
be. In fact these detractors presumably don't believe that P exists at all,
certainly not as a separate document, though they might accept it as a
distinct genre with perhaps a distinct origin.

Within certain parameters, the constitution of P is fairly well known.  Whethe
r one believes that it was an original document or tradition is another 
question.  I would suggest that you cease quibbling and read the P account 
whether you care to consider it as correctly designated or not. This constant 
nit-picking indicates a lack of confidence in your position.
