I would welcome any feedback from those who have more knowledge about BoA issues than I do (whether from a critical or believing perspective).
Thank you in advance for your feedback!
Tom, I hadn't seen Barney's Maxwell Institute article, but I've seen a more general sum-up of his online here
. The semitic adaptation theory is intriguing, and frankly--I think you've done a better job of summarizing and presenting it clearly, than Barney himself does.
I think John Gee has done some work trying to extrapolate the original length of the Hor Scroll, that may be worth a passing mention as well. (I think his work has been addressed, from the critic's side, by someone--Craig Smith, maybe?)
