    Also with respect, I suggest that whatever mathematical riddle may have been
    deposited at the very beginning of Genesis, I wonder at its significance. I
    do not deny it a proper hearing. I simply wonder "why?" Why it is important
    that you would barely conceal your displeasure at my "intervention" and your
    commanding use of the words from Isaiah and reference to "straitjacket." I
    mean really. Do you think that's all there is at the very beginning of
    Genesis? Why are you so hostile at the suggestion that Genesis 3:6-7 is far
    more significant, in fact centrally significiant to all of religion that you
    would rather do the puzzle and discourage my "intervention" to boot?
