    Big waste of time trying to point out the obvious to someone who in his very first “rebuttal” says:
    “I think you underestimate the degree to which long time readers and artists have engaged with the text of Genesis. I would say that every “difficult” section of the Bible (not just Genesis) has been examined with a fine tooth comb by scholars, apologists and other serious readers.”
    Scholars, apologists, and serious readers aren’t the people who haven’t read the text. No one argues that Biblical scholars haven’t reads the Bible.
    Crumb has been explicit in describing his intent in many recent interviews. Reviews which question an artists intent, aren’t worth reading let alone responding to.
