Well then, I stand corrected.<quoted text>
Don't put words in my mouth again June. I already told you about being dishonest in that respect before.
I have never stated that...only make argument in that these folks wont even bother to find the earliest available writings and the references to those writings to make them understand what the hell the people of the day were even thinking or talking about. Yet they spew such ignorance and unfounded rhetoric about that wiich they profess to be "truth".
Much of it has value, whether I believe it or not.
Now, that said, I will stand by my statement-------

No it doesn't. It reveals the unwillingness if an organized theocracy to forward the whole available body of writing in the auspices of the individual whom it portrays as it's central figure as the truthful and impeccable center of it's core belief, and what he taught.
In those omissions, redactions, and additions, have not told the entire truth, and therefore might just as well have simply told a complete lie...the value is the same toward the end....deception by omission and obfuscation.
Now I will ask ... Do you believe that ancient theologians knew truth concerning the existence of either one deity, or many deities?
