Truth is the issue.
And folks - despite his false piety and claims that he's only interested in the truth, we are now 30 months into his refusal to answer even BASIC questions about the SART team. Thus, I will give you the true answers since, you know, he's so concerned with truth (or so he says).
1) Where did David Daniels train in paleography?
Nowhere. He's not a paleographer, he's a conspiracy theorist.
2) How does the manuscript coming online in 2009 change Avery's 2011 strongly worded opinion about how if one is just familiar with the details, it's OBVIOUS that it is NOT a 19th century document?
It just proves Avery was lying when he PRETENDED he had studied this issue in 2011.
3) How many of these scholars have ever come down on the side of saying Simonides told the truth and Sinaiticus dates to the 19th century?
Zero is the correct answer.
4) Does ANY paleographer in the world date Sinaiticus to the 19th century?
5) Who made the accusation that the manuscript was darkened?
Simonides claimed it had been aged when he saw it in 1852.
Kallinikos, which is just Simonides writing under a different name, claims he witnessed Tischendorf actually doing this - which means it had to have been altered in 1844 BEFORE it was ever separated and thus pointless
Steven Avery suggests Tischendorf did it and had help, maybe even from Simonides, so he espouses a conspiracy theory without evidence
6) Where did Steven Avery study 'forensic history'?
He didn't, it's one of many terms this former University of California student just made up out of thin air. Forensic history is the study of the history of forensics, which has nothing to do with this situatio.
7) How much study of paleography have you (note: Steven Avery) ever done?
Truthful answer is "none."
8) Does your source Brent Nongbri have ANY papyri that he thinks are dated wrongly by 1500 years?
No, he does not. (Note: I have multiple emails from Nongbri, who is well aware of Avery's DISTORTION of reality).
9) How many Greek MSS has Steven Avery actually handled?
10) How are they to be handled, as in 'what precautions are necessary?'
He doesn't know, because he hasn't done it, so why give him data he'll just pretend on other websites that he's actually done?
11) How many Greek MSS has Steven Avery read?
None, because he can't read Greek. This does not, however, stop him from posting his opinions about Greek grammar.
12) How many Greek manuscripts has Steven Avery photographed?
Truthful answer is zero.
13) How is the lighting to be set?
Can't answer because he's never done this.
14) How long did it take you to take the photographs?
The truthful answer he claims to be interested in is, "I've never done this."
15) Can you, Steven Avery, READ Sinaiticus?
It's in Greek, and he can't read Greek so......the truthful answer is no.
16) Do you have ANY EXPERIENCE with photographing manuscripts?
The truthful answer is no.
17) Do any of the OTHER two members of the SART team have any REAL experience in linguistics?
Neither David Daniels nor Mark Michie is a linguist.
18) What are the published works of those in question 17?
There are none because they are not linguists.
19) Do the people at the CSP who host the manuscript online SAY it is an 1800s production?
No, they do not.
20) What date then do they give it?
21) How does Steven Avery actually KNOW the manuscript at CSP is really Sinaiticus?
He has to trust that the very people he thinks are duped about so much about it have told the truth and know.
22) How much parchment has Steven Avery actually studied?
23) How many experiments have you ever done on parchment?
24) What date does Brent Nongbri give Sinaiticus?
He has no reason to doubt the fourth century date, meaning ANY appeals to Nongbri about a wrong date with Aleph are intentional dishonesty.
