post in my reply to Dave Washburn.) But now I get increasingly puzzled by the
twist in your recent post. Initially you were talking about "one of Germany's
greatest biblical scholars" refering to Eta Linnemann. Now you say "that she
*was* ONE of Germany's greatest" (emphasis mine) refering to her professorship
at Marburg (her bloody "liberal" past). Are you really siding with those
"liberal" professors who once (in the late 60ies/early 70ies) may have thought
she was/would become a leading biblical scholar?
