Yes, Buirgy, and you may be 9 feet tall. It's logically possible. As for
a change of position, Josephus _Antiquities_ describes the burning of
incense twice a day in the Tabernacle and in the Temple at the time of
the destruction of Jerusalem (III, viii, 3; XIV, iv, 3). Now, it is
logically possible that the high priest entered the Most Holy Place daily
rather than just on the Day of Atonement. But it is silly to make the
claim, though I did not find a reference to the Day of Atonement ceremony
during Josephus' lifetime.
