comment Why does belief in Judaism require irrationality?
@user6641 I dont see anything irrational of the points yo brought up by the way. for example, the reason so few human beings serve Gd is simply because they chose not to. the torah was offered to all the nations b4 being given to the jews. and perhaps if Gd revealed more of Himself, the balance of free will would not be optimal

there you go again assuming you understand God - why not have a look at that lecture by rabbi becher. here's a bonus quote from the shaar bitachon ch.3 The ways of judgments of the Creator are too deep, hidden and lofty for us to understand part of them, and all the more so to understand their general principles. And the verse already says: "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts [higher] than your thoughts" (Yeshaya 55:9).

@bondonk his approach is what bothers the rabbonim. what he is saying between the lines. read this for example ohr.edu/judaism/nature-apikorsas/natur007.txt which in my opinion has a tone, a between the lines message which is very problematic. very suspicious.

slifkin is a controversial figure. many rabbis hold his views are not reliable. that verse certainly does not sound like a plain old hippo which is not much bigger than a common nile croc

the book of job has some interesting verses which seems to imply that humans had dealings with huge creatures. see also this audio.ohr.edu/track/id=2006
