Pretty good with HTML and CSS. Know enough JavaScript to get around. Currently learning Java, C++, and C#. Would like to know PHP and build custom WordPress themes.

comment Are these “Teachings of the Jewish Talmud” and does a typical Jew believe this?
Christianity in large part would probably agree with that entire quote. But Christianity did spin from Judaism. The theme I am seeing, illustrated further in Monica's comment above, is that the Talmud engages in hypothetical sometimes, so context is very important.

The last three paragraphs are definitely the important part. Basically, if you understand what the Talmud is and how it was put together it's pretty easy to tell what's going on.

I actually got this from a spammer on Christianity.se and found that he just copied and pasted from the page I linked. If you think it's a dupe, I'll go with that I guess. I can ask about the specific points if I feel so inclined.

@Yirmeyahu I'm more concerned with the validity of the source. Are these Talmud writings? Do most Jews accept that? Are the summaries generally accurate, or do they kind of twist the words often? I'll cut out most of the quote and people can click through if they want.

comment What is significant about nakedness in Bereishit?
@YeZ So how exactly did the fall make the soul less spiritual and lofty? I'm trying to understand the logic behind this. Or rather, why did the fall hinder the light of the soul from shining through the body, or otherwise hinder our perception of it?

Is this "light of the soul" indicative of righteousness? I'm looking more into this and found a decent article. And this looks promising after reading the first ten paragraphs.

"Sages teach us that Adam and Chava had כתנות אור, hides of light, before they sinned" Is this like a clairvoyance of some kind?

I'm not sure if the clothing tag is used correctly here.

comment Is there a problem with saying “for Pete's sake”?
Some interesting posts about this: Is there a secular, non vulgar alternative to "for heaven's sake"? | "Oh, for Pete's sake!"
