comment Do Jews Believe Dinosaurs Lived in the Same Time Period as Humans?
@bondonk the most logical answer that no one on this site wants to hear is that radio carbon dating is accurate the Torah is wrong.

so is he saying that 1. dinosaurs didn't exist 2. judaism refutes evidence of their existence or 3. the "5th day" was actually a few million years in today's current time frame?

@RobertS.Barnes is this true? it seems very hard to refute the existence of dinosaurs considering their bones are in museums

thanks. so if i have this correct, Slifkin is saying that dinosaurs did exist with humans and they just weren't specifically mentioned in the Torah?

if it's not precise, wouldn't it be best to be on the safe side and not take the blood?

if my translation is correct: "Do not eat any blood, whether from a mammal or a bird, no matter where you may live." Humans are mammals. no?

comment Biblical evidence for not eating bread on passover?
Thank you everyone for these detailed answers. It seems those torah lines only forbid anything "leavened," specifically bread, but there is also a line that says not to eat anything leavened. If I have this correct, corn-syrup and other grain substitutes are not forbidden by the Torah, but rather by some Rabbis?

comment Biblical evidence for not eating bread on passover?
thanks. i read the translation in the links you provided and it only says not to eat "bread." It doesn't say anything about ice cream or those other foods that are forbidden
