  1. "Mazel Tov" has as many nuances as does "nu" Other than that, right on brother. Personally, I'm a rationalist. All the mysticism I need is found on the pages of The Book. The rest is just mumbo jumbo.

  8. I agree with you entirely, we need to be aware that the Zohar is a medieval forgery done by a shady character Moshe de Leon, probably with some Franciscan brothers helping him. The real thing is the Tenach and the Talmud, but beware of taking midrashim literally.

  9. Only analyse the etymology of the words:
    Religion comes from the latin "religare"which means to put together,it implies a relationship with the divinity and with the society. Religion is based on revelation and reason.
    Superstition is what is left from traditions all the mumbo jumbo, without logic. It can parasitize religion.

  10. Why is the Rabbi wrong? EXPLAIN!! Are you afraid of the truth?

  11. Great article. This Humanoid (elephant god) called Ganesh and all others gods that the Hindus worship are very real and NOT a myth. They are the products of the Nephillim that were destroyed by YHWH in Noah's flood. This Hindu god of luck, Ganesh, a giant, was also worshiped in Central-South America. Idols of Ganesh have been excavated in plenty in Mexico.

  12. You don't harness Divine energy. It is God who commands us and hopefully we obey Him. He is not a machine that we control by certain actions; He is the Creator of all things and the Sovereign Lord.

  13. The rabbi is wrong because the people must put their whole trust in the Lord G-d of Isreal, as there is no other G-d beside Him, and so we should learn lessons from the Israelites while they wandered in the desert for forty years and grumbled and G-d was angry with them, for not remembering that He brought them out with a mighty hand. and so we should look to the risen Christ who was lifted up, like Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness for healing and faith in the Living G-d

  14. superstition is like worshipping false gods who have no power, only what is imagined in the mind.

  15. buddy religion doesnt save either, neither does believing in idols which have no power there is only one true G-d which is the Lord G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Seek ye Him, while He yet may be found, Isaiah not sure which chapter.

  16. Sientje Seinen Both the serpent Moses erected and the later snake in the grass were worshiped as false gods. What’s your point?
