The Religion Of Evolution

The-Shmuz

The answer is that Hashem created man with free will, free will to believe or not to believe, to accept or not to accept. The capacity for free will was included this most amazing ability to accept the most farfetched, ludicrous positions as long as it fits into a person’s agenda.

This seems to be the answer for Rashi. The Torah is teaching us that the human may be brilliant and wise, but he has a weakness. His pure judgment can be easily influenced. If a man accepts a bribe, it will color his vision. He will lose his detached sense of judgment and will no longer be able to rule objectively. He may think he won’t be influenced, but it is human nature to be pulled, and he will no longer be capable of objective clarity. He will be blinded.

  1. If we had evolved from apes, as some who believe in evolution claim, then why is it written in Genesis 2 verse 20"And Adam gave names to all cattle and fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found an help mate for him" therefore the religion of evolution is a lie. and is it not written "therefore G-d send them great delusion that they should believe "the lie".

    Rabbi Shafier, you either have no understanding of evolution, or are assuming none of your readers do.

‘All Agree That They Are Exempt’
(Kesubbos 35a)

Question: If Abraham was commanded to circumcise his descendants on the eighth day, why do Arabs – who claim to descend from Abraham through Yishmael – wait until their children are 13 to circumcise them? I am aware that this is a matter of little consequence to our people. Nevertheless, this inconsistency is one that piques my curiosity.

Why would the exemption of women from donating the half shekel exempt them from davening Musaf?

This concept should be very relevant to us as we, too, should be happy beyond description.

The avodah (service) of the kohen gadol is vital and highly sensitive; the world’s very existence depends on it.

While it may appear that man is in charge, Hashem orchestrates every activity on the planet

Hashem placed this world at man’s disposal. In a real sense, man is the steward of Creation.

He is fully aware that who he will be for eternity is in his hands.

How can the Da’as Zekeinim say this was Hashem’s plan to allow them to become the Torah Nation? We know it was actually a punishment.

How is it possible that the clothing was more valuable to them than gold or silver?

It is exactly like that of an animal, with all of the passions and desires necessary to drive man though his daily existence.
