Karl's claim (and correct me if wrong Karl) is that almah meant one  
thing in the Hebrew speech community until the advent of  
christianity, and then the meaning was changed by non-christian Jews.  
And I believe you to be correct, that assumption on Karl's part is  
erroneous. But the claim is also offensive.
