    I would tentatively accept the statement above if you altered it to read:
    "these facts (augmented by the many other phenomena described in the pages
    of http://www.otherbiblecode.com) constitute EVIDENCE FOR THE CLAIM that
    certain key parts of the biblical text as found in current copies of the
    Hebrew and Greek originals are intelligently designed BY A SUPERNATURAL
    BEING NOT A HUMAN ... ."

    Do you see the difference in your statement and my change to it? It is, I
    think, a key difference.

    That being said, the question then becomes how strong the evidence is, and,
    if the claim is true, what difference does it make.

    To reiterate my own position on this, I see the evidence for the claim as
    too weak to consider seriously, and that, even if true, it does not make any
    real difference to anything that matters.
