You are making it sound like those are all complete manuscripts rofl!!! that isn't the case at all. They are including any fragments that come close to matching anything in the ANY of the given gospels. That means if they find a little piece of "paper" that says "our father who are in heaven" they include that in the 5,600 copies.
Carm is hardly a concise source. As you have shown here, they are given to leaving out info. As well as damn near outright lying. 99.5% consistency? Really?????? That's odd, because they've shown that a lot of what we have in the new test now, isn't in ANY of the older manuscripts at all. And the New Test wasn't written only in Greek.... and there isn't a complete manuscript in Aramaic AT ALL..... And considering most of the New Test wasn't written till almost 100 yrs AFTER jesus, makes it rather hard to say they are all consistent.
Um, Homer's work is ONE PIECE... the gospels are NOT. During their first usage, one church would use Matthews... another would use Marks..... their scribes, like pagan scribes, would copy them for nearby churches, other members, etc....
Homer is NOT a religious text. And you have NO ORIGINAL COPY of ANY part of the New Test at all! What cracks me up about your post on Homer, is the fact that the 5600 of the New Test includes FRAGMENTS... but carm conveniently leaves that out on the Homer issue.
Carm is NOT concise. Not even close..... They took this from wikipedia and conveniently left out parts of it. It matches wikipedia almost word for word except for the parts it didn't want to post.
Don't you even check up on these sites yourself?
And Homer isn't the closest ancient work rofl!!!! even the person who did the wikipedia article got that wrong.
This is like that 50 bibles of constantine... there weren't any Bibles at that time... NONE.... they were scrolls scattered to several different cities under Roman Rule... Because of Constantine. There was no complete set of scrolls that now make up what we call the Bible today either. It wasn't until After Constantine that they even decided on which ones they would consider "scripture"
