But then, as a non-expert Judith does exclude herself from being able to say
what might or might not be dogmatic in this field (other than to echo
Stephen's somewhat hollow phraseology). So, I guess her post is best ignored.

Naturally I do appreciate the her brevity of her post.


Incidentally, "dogmatic" is a nice "sound" bite. It was previously used in
the context of this list to talk about the unsupportable Essene hypothesis
that has been held dogmatically for 50 years.
