I admire his dedication and harwork, but am a little puzzled at what a scientific edition of a religious text is.

It would probably look something like this.

I work with one.  It is hilarious.  He always says we should only trust the original.  I'll then point out the most of the originals are in greek or aramaic and he then freaks out and starts talking conspiracy theories about why the older ones are fake and the KJV is the only version that is divinely inspired.

No it is not. The King James version was the idea of King James and that Bible has his ideas as well as the ideas of the people working on it. It is a translation and translations can be inaccurate. God did not hand down the Bible. It is a great book with good teachings, but was written by men and humans make mistakes. It was hand copied for years and mistakes were made.

The King James Version is a translation of the original texts in Elizabethan English. It was written in the language of the day, there are translations written in modern English, too. They all convey the same meanings, even if they use different words to do so. Whether you consider the Bible to be devinely inspired or not is a choice for you to make. Consider this: 1)The newest translations convey the same messages as the oldest ones, even the scholar in this article says that his corrections are mostly grammarical and don't change the meaning of the text. 2) If the KJV contains King James' ideas as well as the people working on it, how is it that the original text contains the same ideas even though it was written centuries before any of these people were born?

No one cares about academia and scholars, which is half the reason our world is going to hell and back, its run by businessmen, movie stars, and politicians.
