All I did was to mention the message included in the text, where I thought
it unnecessary to mention that many people consider that message a myth,
even including Jim Stinehardt, unnecessary to mention because it is so
widely so understood. I then contrasted that with the myth, a myth that has
many variants with Jim Stinehardt being an outlier towards the old end,
while most variants of that myth giving a date of authorship for the
Pentateuch as between late pre-Babylonian Exile to the Hasmonean age, a myth
that could give a completely different reading to the text. As far as I
know, in accordance with the rules on this list, I did not proselytize for
any understanding while discussing these options.

So why make it into an argument?
