  1. Harry Maryles as an Open Orthodox Jew I am deeply offended by your ridiculous comments.

  2. good article. By rejecting past miracles that the Jews experienced, they are suggesting that G-d is incapable to provide these things when his children needed them…

  3. Oh boy… Something about this article just feels wrong, like the intuition meter has a buried needle on this one. Not necessarily saying the man doesn't have well founded sentiments, but on the other hand, one cannot make such blanket judgements and speak with accuracy for everyone.

  4. Not according to Ramban

  5. The author, obviously very religious is expressing his views. As for the crossing of the Red Sea (which is really very blue), the underwater land banks has been found, Israel knows about it so does Saudi. In Korea there is a similar phenomena. That events happened at Mt. Horev in the Sinai desert, no doubt about that, Mt. Sinai is considered a Holy Mountain by the locals. That the laws given were phenomenal in their time is tremendous; when considering the state of civilization at that time and in fact, it has not really changed. We murder one another, we steal and rob, we cheat and lie and these laws recognized our weaknesses and we are told to change or wicked ways. Somewhere in the universe these laws and their ugly side – and there are ugly sides, work but not in this world.

  6. Agree absolutely. Seems the Jews have the same problems we face in the Christian churches!!! There are so many false teachings which creep in. Which is why I study the Word of G-d and believe it and obey it and measure everything to it and discard of everything which does not.

  7. They cannot work is it is not accompanied by faith and relationship in the Almighty G-d. He fights for you if you commit yourself in His hand and He rewards obedience in this life and the next.

  8. So if you don't believe every word of the Bible, you're a heretic, Harry? Well, I don't believe every word in the Bible, and it's been scientifically proven that the Bible (Torah, Tanach, whatever you want to call it) is a big bubbemeisa starting with the first sentence…In the beginning God created…in six days, and on the seventh day He rested. We all know that the universe is approximately 13.8 billion years old (give or take several hundred million), not 5,775 1/2 years. If that's wrong, then what's right?

    I guess that makes me, a Reform Jew, a heretic — and an apikorus. It also makes me right.

  9. There's lots of dispute as to the location of Mt. Sinai. Some very learned anthropologists say it's in NW Saudi Arabia.

  10. The Bible is actually accurate from beginning to end, it is science that has more to explain and offers just a fairytale for grown ups. About half the scientists today are creationists but would lose their jobs is they said so openly. Creation Ministries International is a movement of Creation Scientists who know both evolution and creation theories and you can go to their FB page CMI and debate real scientists there and receive research documents each day if you like their page, they have about 8000 articles if you really want facts and are willing to study into the subject.

  11. Yes we have a video on that and the new facts do not negate the Biblical account of the Exodus.

  12. Lize Bartsch Lemme ask you this: If the Flood as depicted in the Bible is accurate, the earth was covered with water over 3 miles deep (Mt. Ararat is over 16,000' high and it was totally submerged). That's over 600 million CUBIC MILES of water, not counting what's currently in the earth's oceans, seas, and lakes.

    Where did all this water go? Did God just raise his mighty arms and all the water disappeared?

    Now I know dinosaurs co-existed with man: I'm a big fan of the Flintstones, and everything you watch on TV is as accurate as what's portrayed in the Bible, so it all must be so, nicht wahr?

  13. Dan Silagi , these are just the kind of questions the scientists of CMI love to answer, I will try with my unscientific limited knowledge to give you some idea. The Bible does not only say it rained for 40 days but also that the fountains of the deep broke open. There are huge underground lakes, I suppose the water drained back into underground lakes and reservoirs and the rest evaporated. The earth's water levels did increase after the flood. Every continent could be connected to each other if the waterlevel was lowered by just a few meters (the continental shelf). So before the flood it might well be that all countries were connected.
