    Vernon, you wrote:

    "Todd, clearly you are a man who "...hears not Moses..." (Luke 16:31);
    indeed, one deeply committed to preaching a completely different message.

    This is clearly an "ad hominem" remark, and is much unlike you. While you
    know I am among those, like Todd and George and Howard and ... , who
    regard your findings as being of mild interest but hardly of import, I
    have always noted that you are most gentlemanly in your posts here. Not
    so the above.

    What Todd suggested, similar analyses of books clearly not regarded as
    sacred in any way, seems quite rational to me, and if I believed in your
    thesis as much as you do, I'd do it as a falsification exercise. If, for
    example, you found a similar pattern in, say, MOBY DICK, or in
    Shakespeare's HAMLET, this would probably weaken your arguments
