comment How do books which have obviously been compiled become part of Tanach?
Why didn't God tell people to write the final version of the holy book right from the beginning? Why the book has to "evolve" first into it's final form?

Imprimatur? What's that? How do we know that a book is holy? There are so many rabbis that also says pretty wise things. Why they're not part of the scriptures?

I think part of the jokes of "is there no grave in egypt" is the idea that egypt is famous for its graves. Pyramids are graves, for example. They're effectively saying that the whole point of their deliverance is because because they are so pathetic they don't deserve graves like Pharaohs.

There are several version of Torah failedmessiah.typepad.com/failed_messiahcom/2011/04/…. jews seem to believe that the masoretic version, made around 10th century, the be the closest to original. Christians are more open minded about possibility of dead sea scrolls being more accurate on some part. The number of years the noah ancestors live may have been edited in masoretic

comment Why there is no prophet among anyone now even though humans nowadays are hollier than ancient humans?
So less violent but less holiness either. Hmm... is there a way to measure holiness then? Or is it just some abstract concept made to blame gays/lesbians/porn or anything that don't fit something.

I thought average righteousness/holyness (what's the different) should correlate positively with number of prophet and negatively with violent rate. I am not seeing that correlation.

Baby Seal, I don't understand the downvote either. Do you have asperger symptom like me? So we have this variable called "average holyness". That variable should correlate positively with both percentage of prophets and lower violent rate. I am not seeing that correlation. I observe the opposite. Something is wrong. That's assuming this whole God theory is true in the first place.
