I'm sorry, but this is the etymological fallacy. The words KABOD and
KABED may (or may not) be derived from some word in the remote past
which meant "weighty", but that does not imply that the meanings in
biblical Hebrew have any relationship to the this ancient meaning of
Karl, I can say that your argument is a nice one, but although the
etymology of "nice" is from Latin "nescius" meaning "ignorant", I am not
accusing you of being ignorant, because in modern English "nice" does
not mean "ignorant".
