comment In what ways do Sadducees differ from atheists?
I tried to find the source but I think I have lost it. Either Sadducee believes that God brings justice in this life or they believe that God doesn't even do that. It seems that the latter is the correct one.

comment Does wa tawrat (ותורת) in Jeremiah 8:8 means torah, namely the 5 books or Moshe?
Let me understand. Do you mean that wTawrat there means the torah? The 5 books of Moses. However, you didn't mean that it is corrupted. You simply mean that they're not following it and hence are in vain?

The URL I quoted is NOT a christian source. It's a gnostic source with out of the box interpretation. Their idea is that Jesus is an even greater god than hashem, which some sects used to believe in early Christianity. I do not come here to evangelize. Just to keep things straight. I am agnostic my self.

So saducees, like the christian, does not believe in oral torah either. Christianity is a much bigger branch than pharisic/rabinical branch. More like 100 to 1. Neither are the same with ancient judaism.

comment Is Sex Outside Marriage Still a Sin After the Invention of Paternity Tests?
@Alex and that is precisely the problem with marriage nowadays. The children of the women is presumed to be yours when they are not. So marriage has the opposite effect than ancient marriage. Marriage makes you liable to support someone else' child, while in ancient time, marriage ensured your money goes to your children.

comment Ezra claimed that Samaritans are not Jews. Is genetic data in conflict with this?
So the samaritans are more jewish than contemporary jews? At least genetically? I mean, religiously the muslims are more jewish than modern jews right.

comment Can jews eat unclean animals when blood is removed?
And jews eat gazelle and deers? Those are hunted animals and jews don't hunt.

comment Can Jews eat hunted animals?
Not really. My question is whether jews hunt at all or not. It seems that judaism may have lead the world to move on from hunter gatherer society to farming. Or something like that.

comment Is this true that Elijah and Elisha didn't perform any miracle to help Jews?
I got good answers. I'll ask the Christians. That being said, Elisha did only cure one lepper

comment How do soldiers in the IDF obey Deuteronomy 23:13?
If IDF (and all those other armies) do not obey halaca by bringing shovel use it to dig and cover, then why isn't thebricktestament.com/the_law/following_your_own_moral_compass/… happen to any of them?

comment How do soldiers in the IDF obey Deuteronomy 23:13?
One thing for sure is I do not think any IDF soldiers will "go out of camp" when taking a dump and dig hole and latter cover it. Doing so will open them to enemies' fire, etc. So this mitvah is definitely not done the way it's intended.

comment How can God be just in light of Deuteronomy 23:3?
A mamser can't marry a normal jew. That would actually be much easier to observe if modern rabbi keep mamser mamser. What happened is modern rabbis go the extra mile ensuring no body is declared mamser that you will never know who you marry.

Not 50k. Humans history is only 10k at most. We are descendants of homo pre historicus and we are evolving to homo technologicus

So Joseph is a tribe too? I see. Is that what you're saying?

comment Why people keep saying 12 tribes of Israel when there are 13?
Back to the question. Even though Levi doesn't have land, it is still a tribe. So it's 13 tribes then. I am asking for the the tribes, not the land parcels. Somebody don't like number 13 or what?

And why they are called musketeers while they rarely ever use musket and fight with sabre? Oh a different topic.

Simeon territory is in the south. Why it's called 10 lost tribes is another puzzle. Merged with Judah doesn't mean lost. Also Benjamin also merge with Judah. Who's counting this thing anyway?
