      Just a heads up, all those new people are probably from a local Catholic University. We're checking it, but that seems to be the case. They all seem to be in the same class.

      I was *this* close to dropping the 'Noahide' label because of the appropriation and misuse of it by certain other groups becoming extremely annoying, but there is no other label so I suppose I'll just stick to defending the, uh, actual definition. Just that if it drops from my profile, it's not because I ditched it wholesale.

        Why not bat Noach instead? You can even do it using Hebrew letters instead of transliteration.

      Thank you for informing me about the Septuagint's history. I had just remembered that Christian authors used Greek translations of the Tanach, and had foolishly assumed that the texts they used were the same which exist now.

      Sometimes I would much rather write responses than just like all your posts, but there's rarely anything to add. Occasionally I have been tempted to argue with you just for the sake of it, create a troll xian account or something. I won't, of course, but the thought has crossed my mind.

        ...Again, since some of your posts did a vanishing act. Also, as I've been reminded, since we're not conversing privately anymore, I would like it cleared up that the 3rd party makes that ok? And feel free to delete this comment after the fact if you want.

      That last post was a complete burn! It brings to mind the time you laughed at some of my arguments when I was a xian and your doing that was one of the things that gave me pause to consider them. Perhaps a good debate tactic if utilised in the correct manner!!

        I argued with him about it once, not sure if you saw, because I had beef with it too, but unfortunately he has the freedom on here to call himself a spoon if he likes.

      Thanks Tumah,
      When I was saying imperfect I meant it would be incomplete. Isn't that correct?
      To me it looks like it could be translated I AM because I AM or I Exist because I Exist. Is that correct?
      If it was Aleph Hey Waw Hey, how would it be pronounced?
      1. Tumah
        Tumah
        I understood what you were saying and I was explaining that the prefix makes it imperfective, not imperfect. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperfect#Semitic_languages

        The middle word "asher" means "that" or "which".

        I do not know how it would be pronounced, the same as I don't know how the Tetragrammaton was pronounced.

      Tumah,
      Can I ask you some things re: the phrase Ehyeh asher Ehyeh?
      It is translated in so many different ways? Aren't the verbs Qal with prefixes making it imperfect. Or can verbs of being, cover past, present, and future tenses.
      Also, is it possible that in the past HYH could have been written HWH, and the sound of the word would have been closer to sounding like the name of God?
      Thanks,
      TrueBeliever37
      1. Tumah
        Tumah
        It's imperfective aspect not imperfect tense. It can mean a current and/or future action, not usually past.

        The Y and W are often interchangeable in the writing. I don't see why this one needs to sound more like the Tetragrammaton than any of the other Names of G-d.
