Rule #4: Points should be supported with evidence and reasoned argumentation. Address rebuttals through the introduction of additional evidence or by enlarging upon the argument. Do not repeat previous points without further elaboration. Avoid bare assertions.
Please read Message 1 to understand the point of this thread. Also notice that this thread is on the science side of the forum. This means that hard evidence is necessary as well as reasoned argumentation.
The thread is about superiority of one canon over another. Please adjust accordingly.
Rebuttals are to be addressed by introducing additional evidence or by enlarging upon the argument. You already said that original autographs are irrelevant to the topic. Stop asking, enlarge on the argument or better yet present your argument for your position on the topic.
