comment Why did God do nothing against the Romans that desecrated the Temple?
I wouldn't repeat the phrase here but blaspheming God and "damning" him seems to be soooooooo popular in western civilization that it's a standard curse words. I hate this **** chair. I messed up with that ***** car.

comment If Jews shouldn't marry non-Jews, why did prominent Jewish leaders do so in the bible?
Oh I see. Those are not mitzvah. Those are fences outside mitzvah. So in a sense, some "authority figure" can add rules. A king may extend sabbath to include friday and sunday and anyone breathing there will be stoned to death (on monday), for example. I mean, won't happen. But technically they can.

In one hand, I've heard that no more mitzvah after torah. On the other hand, after Ezra, tada, no more intermarriage. Then now, 50% of jews outside israel intermarry. I mean you don't think nothing is to explain? Doesn't see anything strange?

But even that changes all the time. Same sex marriage is the most obvious case.

What percentage of jews support gay marriage when moses brought down the ten commandment? 0% I bet. Now, 83% of jews approved. Some "unchanging" mitvahs. And I bet the 83% jews would comically claim that they are still following that 4k years old torah with the same interpretation than what would Moses and his pals would have understood.

I sometimes wonder how christians' gospel got "accepted" too. It's pretty troubling. Judaism is not any better. It all started with tons of people have tons of differing opinions. Then difference opinions become differently popular. What's popular changes all the time. If someone ask, what is true christianity, or what is true judaism? Well, through out history, and through out different places, so many differing opinions show up. Each people claiming that their opinion is the true (christianity/judaism/truth/etc.)

comment Can a prophet add to or change the Torah?
There will be no changes to the torah but does that mean that there will be no changes to God's commandment? For example, torah prohibited homosexual relationship. Reconstructionist jews now blessed homosexual marriage. Is it possible that God did prohibit homosexual marriage but latter changed his mind. You know what, it's okay now. That sort of thing?

comment In adultery, why is a wife is guilty, and a husband not?
Does it matter if Judah's wife is death or not? Men's marriage status doesn't seem to prevent him from mating with anyone else. The women's marital status seem to be the issue. Whether a man is married or not seems to be irrelevant. He can boing boing any woman as long as she is not someone else' wife. In fact, some conservative rabbi consider David action with Betsheba is not a sin because Batsheba is not technically married at that time.

comment Is Buddhism Avodah Zarah?
Gautama and most buddhists believe that Gautama himself is above all, including any supreme being or beings. I think I wrote enough to be answer. You can check this. I am neither jewish or Buddhist.

comment Is Buddhism Avodah Zarah?
So according to Gautama, even bakka brahma, the most powerful being in the universe, is pretty delusional because he think that he creates everything and nothing is above him. It's like gnostic christians (declared heretical by catholic too). Have you ever think that may be Hashem is delusional too and need enlightenment? Well, that seems to be what gautama think. Nothing live forever and everything is impermanent and illusionary (maya)

comment Is Buddhism Avodah Zarah?
Not a buddhist. Though an interested readers of buddhism. Buddhist do not believe in a creator God. Gautama believe in a being called bakka brahma that "think" he creates everything but doesn't. The realms we're in have been around from eternity to eternity and has no beginning in buddhism. Not sure how they reconcile that with big bang followed by age of photons.

The gnostic believe that Jesus is an even higher ranking God than demiurge, which they identify as Hashem. So there are wide variety of beliefs.

comment Is Christianity Avodah Zara?
@Emetv'Shalom, you can check sabellianism here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabellianism . As for me, I don't even know if Hashem is real or not. Sometimes, I wonder if we are truly judged by our beliefs. Then Hashem may say that the correct doctrine is quintinity or hexinity or quaternity and tada, no body goes to heaven.
