Re: orion translation central?

	Jim West's proposal of a Hasmonean-period original Greek Bible,
then translated into Hebrew, received a useful response, in my opinion,
from R. Kraft. One could add, e.g., that some Hebrew Bible mss at Qumran
are dated paleographically to pre-Hasmonean times.
	Bypassing other issues, as our moderator asked, perhaps one other
comment is worthwhile:
	Previously, Prof. West  argued against evidence of scribal activity
at Qumran. This recent post allows some Qumran scribal activity.
