Lets see how far matrixism actually goes. If it’s of God or the divine it will flourish if not it will decay and your argument will be proven wrong.
Damn now I'm using Baha'i tactics.
rather than making generalised accusations of such an unpleasant nature please provide examples. i'm not talking about the book of joshua and taking biblical translations literally here - i'm talking about judaism as it was designed to be practised. to my knowledge there have been no such religious wars in recorded history.BuzzLY said:Please spare us. The only reason the latter does not war more against the former is that they are smaller in numbers. Judaism is responsible for more than its share of religious wars against others and even against themselves.
charming. i don't think you have the least idea about how "jewish scripture" actually works. it is impossible to have a religiously sanctioned war in judaism since the time of solomon in the absence of prophecy, a functional and religiously observant king and priestly/Temple establishment. you only have to read "jewish scripture" to see how this has not been the case for virtually all the kings of israel, judah and judea. likewise, you only have to know a small amount of our oral tradition to know that the priestly/Temple establishment has been grossly impaired since the destruction of the first Temple in 586 CE and prophecy ceased before the destruction of the second Temple. consequently, even if we wanted to make religious war, we lack the authority. i believe i have already pointed out to you that we lack the inclination.In terms of a propensity for inculcating war Jewish scripture is second only that of Islam.
what a well-chosen metaphor. has anyone noticed that microsoft's upgrades overwhelm you with their plethora of overdesigned features whilst failing to deliver any really convincing benefits? that's without even mentioning the new bugs they've created in the process? yet we still surf pretty much the way we always did without using any technology that was the exclusive revelation, sorry, invention of microsoft.
Leaving the metaphor stricftly aside, the reason that Mac and OS do not have the same kind of virus problems is because those who write viruses for fun have no interest in reaching a niche market when the real market is in Windows operating systems, why play for the Philly audience when Broadway is waiting.
but judaism is not just about prayer. in fact, prayer is quite a small part of what we are supposed to be concerned with doing. it is about an approach to living and a way of doing our everyday tasks, even going to the toilet.
