Let me ask you this- do you think most people actually read the scrolls in
hebrew and aramaic?  Do you believe that folk simply read "about" the texts?

this is irrelevant to the issue under discussion.

One should think for oneself.

I dont think you mean this.  You are suggesting that every time we see the
word "Fuehrer" we are to understand "Hitler"?  That is just foolishness.

Not always!!!!!

s.o.?  I think your sort of rambling now.  My comments were directed at
those who read "about" something without ever reading that "something"
itself.  So the natural question now is, have you read the scrolls or have
you simple read about them?  Are you dependent for what you think because
you have primary acquaintance with the sources or because you are taking the
word of someone else about them?
