orion response to Prof. R. Altman

Dr. Rochelle Altman made several interesting and learned and useful
observations in the post "Autograph vs. copy." Thank you. But of the post
"Two birds...' (killed?), may I say: Yes, indeed, Origen et al. do attest
to scroll finds. E. Tov considers the scribal marks in these margins to be
pre-70 CE Qumran hands. I am open to learning more. But the scenario that a
Chinese Hebrew-reading visitor to Qumran caves, post 70 CE, would make a
few (similar-looking) marginal marks and then return 1QS and 1QIsa a to the
cave appears, to me, to tax credulity.
