It would be interesting to see how the rabbinic writers of columns in the press would answer and respond.
It’s now a time for dialogue…
Because under Obama, a blend of dictatorship is coming to America.
Back in the days when the Bible was written, nothing was known of the human genome. However, they’ve found fossil remains of different types of Homo Sapiens and they’ve charted their DNA and thier relationships and it go back quite a long way.
So for educated Rabbis and theologians to talk in terms of certainty of “six days of creation” being earth days and not epochs…pronouncing that 5774 is the ‘birthday’ of the world.
The story of Adam and Eve being literally God’s work instead of being allegory to teach vital moral tenets bespeaks AN ABJECT FEAR IN THE MINDS AND HEARTS OF THE RELIGIOUS THAT SOMEHOW IF THEY DON’T HOLD TO A FANCIFUL STORY AND ALLOW THE COOL BREEZE OF SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS AND TECHNOLOGY TO ENTER THE WORLD OF HUMAN THOUGHT THAT SOMEHOW THE TORAH WILL BE NULLIFIED.
That is the mindset of folks who do not understand that the superstructure they have built is on quicksand. By refusing to be honest, rational and admit that the early stories are to emphasize the necessity to place an imprimatur of morality and proper behavior upon the species through the deux et machina of God talking to man they undercut the whole point of ethics, God, morality and religion.
They render it all a joke.
So, all the philosophies of man have attempted to bring order out of the chaos and has in fact brought death suffering and degradation to mankind because the religious have refused to be rational and so have pushed man to be smarter than God and go his own way without God.
So thank you, clergy, of all religions, for producing the hells and Gulags and reeducation camps (euphemism for torture chambers) that rational man has produced because religious man insisted on living in fairytale land.
WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD THIS WOULD BE IF EVERY PUBLICATION OF CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM WOULD PRINT THIS LITTLE SQUIB SO THAT THE SECULAR COULD COME TO SEE THE VIRTUES OF RELIGION
