Joel:
At least this guy admits that this is merely speculation practiced to try to
bring Genesis into line with his presuppositions, in other words eisagesis.
He admits to no documentary evidence to back himself up.

Rather than have the evidence speak for itself, he forces it into a
straitjacket of his own making. That’s what many of us recognize as improper
scholarship, very close to what in logic is called the straw man argument.
