Who? There were some doubters at one time, but the general accuracy of 
the book has now been well demonstrated.

No, it is bnei elohim, with he, not kaf. I don't know why you are making 
this substitution, but if you are trying to avoid offending Jewish

Anti-Semites are not Christians as you seem to assume. Some may profess 
Christianity, but they deny their faith every time they practice 
anti-Semitism. Many profess other religions or none at all.
