You are adding to the text. Once you do that, you lose all credibility.

You insisted before that no one over the age of 12 was called N(R, now you
admit older. The nose of the camel is inside the tent, how much more will
come in?

Another backhanded admission that you don’t know Hebrew language.

One of my complaints about many scholars is that outside of their narrow
specialty, they often don’t know nuttin’. It’s obvious that the “Gezar
Calendar” is not a calendar as we think of it, for one, it has only eight
months instead of 12. Secondly, for anyone who has studied anything about
crop science, the events are out of order. It sounds like you would be like
most of them: you would starve next to a cow and a ripe wheat field (to
quote a commentator).

You couldn’t be further from the truth. Where the fall new years comes from,

Once again I see no reason to continue this discussion, unless you have
something new to add to this discussion, because I won’t answer unless you
have a significant addition, not a mere recitation of your ideas  so far.
