First of all, my apologies for misrouting a private message to the
list.... I just changed to a new e-mail system, and am not sure how this
Second, and more important, NO, NO, NO -- my comment to Goranson was not
even contemplating the question of who wrote the scrolls -- whether
Essenes or another group or a whole bunch of different people. As it
happens, I have an open mind on this question (as I have said before)
because, just from following the evidence thus far, I see plausible
arguments both for and against the Essenes!
No, my comment (which was intended as a private message) had nothing to do
with any opinion on the authorship -- but was directed at quite OTHER
aspects of the discussion, which I find inappropriate for discussion on
list -- which is why I sent it (or thought I did) as a private message.
Again, sorry it went astray.....
