@schuh; Mind? How could I! You did a good job. I am not very persuasive.

@Davïd: Yup, sounds like a red herring to you. It's not, read a little more, and use wayback.

comment Does Moses Speak Broken Hebrew?
I suspected that this was giving a feeling for what an Egyptian accent or Coptic speaking "Hebrew as a second language" people sounded like. I just wanted to confirm with others who read Hebrew that it's not in my imagination.

comment Did Noah take two doves, or fourteen?
I read the original language, and there are two different number commands: bring two vs. bring 7/7. The first instruction is not saying "bring them in pairs", it is saying "bring two", and it means what it says. Downvoted, this is making up a strained interpretation to blind yourself to textual boundaries.

@RaphaelRosch: My answer is correct, Bob Jones is simply ignoring the text, he isn't seeing textual boundaries that are simply obvious. I didn't give myself points, accepting your own answer gives 0 points, I am not interested in points. The textual inconsistencies in the Noah story are real, they are easy to see, and if you claim not to see them, you are simply dishonest. I don't compromise with dishonest folks, sorry.

But the Samaritan has El-Shaddai, so it's not something that's introduced, and the Hebrew roots don't allow an interpretation of "Your God" very naturally. But perhaps it was a borrowing in a different language, who knows. "Shaddai" means something like "my breast", or "my teat", in Hebrew, and perhaps has a fertility goddess connotation, but I am not sure, it's too isolated. If only there were more ancient texts... +1 for the sources and interesting thoughts, thank you.
