    The Shabbat Thread

    For @Deeje and whoever else may be interested in learning more about the Jewish concept of the Sabbath, or as we like to call it: Shabbat or Shabbos, here's a thread where you can ask your questions and we Jews will do our best to answer them. I would appreciate if other RF Jews would also put...

    How do Christians view Judaism?

    Not sure if this is in the right section... Anyway, through various discussions and, at times, heated debates online with Christians on different sites these last couple of years, I've come under the impression that at least some Christians view Judaism as "Christianity minus Jesus". Certainly...

    Why do they look so different?

    Ham had 2 children, Mizraim (Egypt) and Cush (Ethiopia). Both brothers must have looked similar, because they have the same father and mother. Now my question is, why do the Ethiopians look so different from today's Egyptians? Why are the Ethiopians black but the modern Egyptians white and that...

    Are today's Egyptians Semites or Hamites?

    Today's Egyptians look like Arabs(semitic) and speak Arabic(semitic). So, I would say they are Semites. But many Egyptians say they are the descendants of the Ancient Egyptians. This confuses me a little. How can they be Semites and Hamites at the same time? Because we know that Mizraim (the...

    Can you answer these three questions?

    Can God destroy Himself? If not, is he omnipotent at all? Can God create another Almighty God? If not, is he omnipotent at all? Can God create a being that is more powerful than himself? If not, is he omnipotent at all? If yes, was he omnipotent at all?

    Who are you?

    (this question is only addressed to Christians, Muslims and Jews) If I asked you who you are and where you come from, could you answer me Biblically whether you are a Hamite, a Semite or a Japhetite? And do you also know from which tribe of the respective father you come? Personally I am sure...

    Sounds of Hell (With Recording)

    During the Cold War, the USA and the Soviet Union began to compete over who would be the first to land on the moon. We know that the USA won this race. That's why the USSR wanted to set another record - drill the deepest hole in the world to the center of the Earth! In 1970 the Soviet...

    Are the dietary laws to be understood in the spiritual sense?

    I just read the Barnabas letter and found something I haven't heard before. "Barnabas" writes that the dietary laws of the Old Testament are not to be understood literally but in the spiritual sense. He writes: Barnabas 10:1 But forasmuch as Moses said; Ye shall not eat seine nor eagle nor...

    Questions no one can answer

    I believe in God but sometimes I ask myself these questions: 1. Why is there a God who created everything? Why is there no God and therefore nothing? 2. Why is God good and just and not bad and unjust? 3. Can God the Almighty "destroy" Himself? If not, is he almighty at all? Can God the...

    Islam and Judaism are refuted.

    In 1947 the Isaiah scroll was found in the Dead Sea, one found out that it was written in the 2nd century B.C. and therefore it is the oldest preserved manuscript of a whole book of the Bible. It was also found that the found Isaiah scroll is completely identical with the book of Isaiah in the...

    Flogging the adulterer - Sura of Light

    If the verse of light (24:36) is mystical, there appears little mystical about verse 24:2 from the same chapter, the sura of light: The woman and the man guilty of adultery,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah, if...

    Does the Bible mention Islam?

    You would think that if a book such as the Bible has significant prophetic content it would mention Islam if it were a true religion from G-d. Even if it were a false religion, wouldn't it get a mention? Lets consider the facts that I hope we can all agree on. The Bible was written by multiple...
