Hugh---

Let me explain an ILLEGAL activity is one that is FORBIDDEN.
Forbidden?

By whom?

Nature functions on the basis of an inherent cause-effect mechanism.

So, since nature does not FORBID the planting of a tree in the sky go right ahead and plant one.
Nature does not forbid the planting of a tree in the sky.

A tree cannot be planted in the sky since the right conditions for germination of the seed especially soil does not exist in the atmosphere. Perhaps, a hydroponics experiment could succeed in the sky if a seed could be anchored in a pocket of aerial water vapor.

Nature cannot forbid or condone anything since it works on the basis of causation.

Punishment involves the religion notion of "sin".
Punishment also involves the legal notion of right and wrong.
Nature does not function on the basis of sin or virtue, or right or wrong.
As said earlier, nature has an innate mechanise based on a cause-effect relationship in which all notions of sin or virtue or of right or wrong are absent.
If a virtuous man and a wicked man swallows poison, both are bound to suffer and die and a bolt of lightning can simultaneously strike a good man and a bad man and kill both.
So, where is the idea of punishment in nature?
Punishment is a theological concept and/or a legal idea based on human mental constructs.
Hugh---Nature has its own laws that are mandatory and like man-made laws violations carry punishment.

Joel---Punishment involves the religion notion of "sin".

Hugh--- So when you don't do your HW and you are punished it is because you have sinned?

Joel---Punishment also involves the legal notion of right and wrong.

Hugh--- noted

Joel---Nature does not function on the basis of sin or virtue, or right or wrong.

Hugh---- It does speak in terms of right and wrong but you do not understand it. Nature has laws and like man-made laws ALL deviations from nature's laws are wrong.

Hugh--- Over here FORBID has one meaning of making it impossible. So since it is not impossible to plant a tree in the sky do it now.

QUESTION ON RACES
If phenotype manifestations are a result of genetic mutations, then:
1) How does one account for the marked anatomical variations and vast intellectual differences among the races?
2) Can the genotype of an African be manipulated in the lab so that his phenotypal features and mental abilities match those of say a Japanese or a European?
I did not say genotypical.
Phenotypical brought on by environment and hormones.

You fail to distinguish and overcompensate in the next 1) dumb statement.
Given 1) is nonsensical 2) cannot follow in any means or form as consequence.

Eric---I but know the commandments, and therefore ask why do ye diminish ought from it:
Hugh--- Indeed you KNOW but you do NOT UNDERSTAND them. Once again, to OBEY is better than SACRIFICES.
Numb Testicles:

So the reference to Deut. 4:2 didn't work out very well! So you've moved on.

You do understand that there is a big difference between an offering and a sacrifice. And, offerings can be a mitvah in and of themselves. For example, offerings from this week from our congregation went to local food banks. I think that's exactly what G-d meant to happen. The offerings were meant to feed people. The festival meant to feed men both physically and spiritually. A thanksgiving for the harvest and a thanksgiving for the Torah.

You need more love and less hate. More acceptance and less disdain.

Is the deductive gradation of consciousness called the human mind the same as the rudimentary consciousness (vital-in-matter) that moves gross matter?
