[b-hebrew] one-to-one rendering of olam

No, Bryant;

I reject your characterization entirely. You err completely.

I did not bring "God" into this matter. Gary did.

And my prior responses referring to "God" were just that: responses to
others' posts raising "God" in the first place; and in the context of olam.

I did not raise theology. Others here have so raised the theology program.

And of course, your prompt attempt to censure me, falls flat, and further
implies your agenda, given your pregnant silence in the face of others'
personal attacks against me.

I do not advocate for or against "God" here because of the guidelines. The
postings of others have raised God as an issue; not me.
