James, I think Yigal's exact words were "let's cool down," not "let's
have a cooling
off period before we get back to the closed thread."

Besides, James, you raised the same point earlier in this thread --
"Further if we
were to adopt your strict formulaic understanding here as you point to Genesis
24:47 and 15 as evidence for then that would make Zibeon Esau's wife."  James,
if I respond to a question or point of yours, show me why the response doesn't
work.  Don't just repeat the question.  So, I think you just need to
read my response
again (maybe the first time).  Then re-read it.  Then read it again.
While you are
rereading it until you understand it, let's move on to something else.

P.S. James, while you are looking up for the post, look also at this one -

and my objection to it here -
