re: #342 Cato the Elder

There are two stories, written at different times, in different styles, with different vocabularies and even different words for “God”. They were later redacted into one, supposedly. But you can still see the seams.

The smoothing over of exegesis and interpretation came later, and still proceeds today.

You don’t want to argue text criticism with Walter, believe me. He’ll expel you from the Garden.

how will i get better if i don’t argue with my betters?
