This does not follow. You have ignored the issue of the relative 
accuracy of transmission, and in the LXX case of translation, LXX 
Vorlage to attested text of LXX and proto-MT to attested text of MT. 
There is in fact good evidence of reliable transmission from proto-MT to

attested MT but of considerable corruption, in translation or in 
copying, from LXX Vorlage to attested LXX.
How can one comment on the reliability or otherwise of the LXX
translation when the source text, i.e. the LXX Vorlage, is not extant?
