Baby Seals are cute and you'd love to snuggle one, but you'd never take them or their opinions very seriously.

Arp arp!

You answer very much rests on that point, imo. You could go with haughty, though.

Thank you! Careful though, Obadiah 1:3 doesn't read ROOMA, with a shuruk, as in Samuel. It reads ROAMA, with a cholam. check the link. Now you could of course discuss when the Targum was vowelized, but you do need to discuss it. (I didn't even look at Rooma in Jastrow, for this reason!)

What you are saying is the equivalent of me saying that Joe says that cows are blue in china, and I think that blue cows would die, therefore Joe is wrong. I have no Idea how blue cows would fair in china. I conjecture that they'd die, though, and that refutes the idea?! That's ludicrous. That's not how science works.

you respectfully disagree that you are conjecturing facts? you are! bring me a proof that the pyramids were wiped out in the mabul. Bring me a proof that they were made of materials that were strictly after the mabul. You can't. You don't know what the flood was like. No one does. No one can.

comment Targum on Obadiah 1:3 a Reference to Rome?
@AvrohomYitzchok Many places in the talmud say that. But there is controversy as to the literal meaning of that notion. Depending on the meaning here I believe this an interesting source, because YB"U lived most likely through the reign of Herod, whom Jastrow and Shadal cite as the reason for the association between Edom and Rome. But on the other hand we have the tradition that YB"U wrote based on prophets who lived much earlier than Herod, but who, based on our tradition did live to during the beginnings of the R republic, and who most definitely lived during the time of Roman kingdom.

@AvrohomYitzchok I am looking for a specific discussion of YB"U's targum on 1:3.

re number 2, just because the pyramids were from post-mabul society doesn't mean the materials used in them were not. and Just because a mabul happened doesn't mean that pyramids didn't make it through the mabul. You are conjecturing facts about the mabul and its ramifications, and using them to bring evidence against it. That is a very flawed argument.

This shiur is relevant. It touches on a lot of ideas that you have mentioned, and I think is useful to post here: torahdownloads.com/shiur-17133.html
