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

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.

And you think God cares that people are atheists more than worshiping others' God? Jonah trip to Niniveh doesn't seem to suggest that at all. You mean God care that gay people marry each other than heterosexual men killing each other? This should be another question.

It's not just intellectual awareness. It's holiness measured by lower crime rate/murder rate, etc. We're a much nicer guys now than our ancestors. God don't like that?

But answer from other question says that Hashem is more interested that people live peacefully rather than having more knowledge of him. That's why he sent Jonah to Niniveh to presumably lower crime rates, rather than to any other cities that don't even worship the right God.

comment Is Cain a prophet?
But there is no prophet among anyone now. So are we all bad people now? That's despite the fact that murder and robbery rates have dropped a lot edited for language
