Here is, yet, another person that has reached out to scholars. I've seen this so many times in my involvement with [AcademicBiblical](https://www.reddit.com/r/AcademicBiblical/) and [AskBibleScholars](https://www.reddit.com/r/AskBibleScholars/).
The general field of study is, obviously, humanities. And it goes without saying, if very bright people (possibly millions of people through academic institutions) dedicate a large portion of their lives to this, then it would behoove us to pay attention.
Whatever lies, misinformation, propaganda, etc that you may have been bombarded with must come into question.
Do you care about humanity? The aforementioned people that contribute to this field of study, for the most part, do care and want to contribute to all of us.
