      There is an enormous difference between saying "what
      you said is ludicrous" and that "you are ludicrous."
      Nothing personal was intended. Let's keep things

      and you cannot see that -

      You said "provided it has not been tampered with in a
      way". I take this to be strict as Text Critics tend to
      so that "tessares" being four should occur four times
      as you predict or claim. Mk 6:40 PENTEKONTA (400) here
      means "fifties," but in your scheme should be included
      as a cryptogram. Mk 6:48 TETARTOS means "four"
      referring to the fourth watch in Roman reckoning of
      the hours of the day. With these two additional
      deviations with TETART- , TETARTO- from the ROOT of
      FOUR your argument collapses equalling five or six
      instances, not four, or merely two as I take it.

      Nor is it real. I am challenging your claim not YOU as
      a human being.
