TRADITIONAL BIBLICAL TEXTUAL CRITICISM IS NOT SCHOLARSHIP

Traditional biblical textual criticism is NOT scholarship.  It is, however, “scholocentroship.”  Scholocentroship is nothing more than large amounts of knowledge and information.  Traditional biblical textual criticism does, indeed, involve large amounts of knowledge and information.  But that does not make it scholarship.  Scholarship takes knowledge and information and draws decisive (settling things once and for all) conclusions.  Traditional biblical textual criticism does NOT draw decisive conclusions.  Instead, it simply forms opinions.  These opinions are nothing more than hunches.  They are not science.
