Setting the record straight
#67
30% is not a red flag as far as Essay Rater's plagiarism score is concerned. Some of my chapters as well as those of other popular translations may show a 30%
score, but usually multiple sources on several different Bible web sites come up, and there is no one source pointed to. That is normal and to be expected.

Not the case with AENT; the avg. plagiarism score is much higher (about 75%) and the sources are consistently the same site and the same files on that site.
And Essay Rater gives a conservative number; a manual count shows a much higher correlation of 90-95%. It also consistently rates AENT at 0% overall, for every single
one of 60 chapters. That is due to the unacceptable plagiarism scores in every case.No one needs a program to compare AENT with Murdock and Younan. All one needs is eyes that see. It is quite plain that AENT is copied from those translations, and no one here is ready to deny that.

This has nothing to do with Paul giving permission to Andrew, nor has it anything to do with what Andrew said on this web site to Peshitta.org members.
That is all irrelevant. It has to do with the book itself, and what he did not put in it- clearly stated credit to the proper sources of almost all of the translation.

Give it up, Christine? What, I cannot defend myself against your accusations against me?
You don't have to read my posts, but you can't help yourself, can you, Christine?
I have not posted here for many months, and I came back to see some ridiculous statements about me, and I have responded to balance out the lopsided perspective I see coming out of this forum.

I have a wonderful life, Christine. Why are you so emotionally invested in Andrew? Is he your hero? I am sorry to report what he has done, but I and others confronted him
here and elsewhere about this matter. Albion Guppy was, by far, his biggest fan, and he questioned him about his sources. Andrew refused to answer when asked, "How much of this translation is your own work?" Albion became suspicious, and rightly so. He and Ryan Dooley were both banned from this forum, and unjustly so, in my opinion, because they dared to challenge Andrew, the Resident Scholar Emeritus.

By that time, the book had been published. I obtained a copy, and Albion asked me to review it, which I did.

I couldn't believe what I saw.

I did an extensive manual examination of AENT and I certainly prayed about what to do. I did not want to review his book, as it might appear self serving, so I engaged Andrew here first. I, of course, got nowhere with him. I sent some analysis to Ryan, who posted his own review on Amazon, armed with some of my files of my manual analysis. He had a hard time keeping his review on the Amazon site; it appeared someone was taking it off every time he posted it. Albion also posted a review and had the same trouble. Ryan had also posted a review of my translations, and his reviews are still there on Amazon.

So I posted my own review and have updated it. It has remained there. Needless to say, Andrew and I have had our run-ins before all this, and I frankly became suspicious of him a long time ago, but I was not prepared for what I found when I read his "translation". I could not believe that he had copied almost every word of Murdock and Younan and had searched and replaced names and titles, along with the thee's and thou's, etc., of Murdock. The only book I saw that he had translated himself was Galatians.
I will not comment further on that.

Even more amazing is the extent to which people defend his deed and even promote it.

How can you call yourselves his friends? You don't care about Andrew, not if you excuse his sin or turn blind eyes to it.

Pr 27:6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.


I may be the only friend Andrew has.
God knows my heart.
