I have no problem with the fact that, at times, a verse as a whole in the NA
is not extant in any surviving manuscript. This can happen. And about 100
out of about 8.000 verses is not much.
How one can infer from that, that "the NA27/UBS4 text is based on conjecture
and speculation, and not upon a logical inference from the actual data" is
pure polemics. I don't like that.
Nevertheless I agree that there are a few cases where the break-up of larger
units of variation into microscopic smaller units is a bit too much for my
An example is Jo 6:23, where HLQEN PLOIARIA has no manuscript support. Ok,
they put it in brackets, but a little bit more courage or decisiveness would
be appropriate here (and at some other points), I think.

What IS circular is the CBGM, the "Coherence-Based Genealogical Method", I
agree, I have noted this myself repeatedly.
