Shavua Tov, ya'll. You know, I can see his point. When Buddhism creates such a tolerant and amiable person as this, it's a wonder everyone doesn't join up and start staring at their navel all day long.
Where do I sign up to become a Buddhist and can I still eat steak?
rabbee: nah got better things to do, than to learn how to be a more tolerant and passive supramental victim.

I would never accuse you of being either tolerant or even reasonably well informed.

You are just free to be you.

rabbee: all moot points, ignoring the real message. to become Holy here in TheTorah as, I-AM is HOLY in The Giving of TheTorah.
never was about being a jew, it is always about being true to G-D here in TheTorah. being true to jews, shall lead you into the idolatry of not being true to G-D. and shall result you writing your! history, as if you are not here in TheTorah.
being true to other jews, christians, and muslims, shall not result in your being true to G-D. that is an invitation to evil and wickedness, resulting in all manners of hell and death.
There is nothing moot about my points. One does not practice to become a SEED or offspring of Israel.

Do you practice to become a offspring of your mother or grandparents?

Your point about being true to God is key and valid.

What I've always heard about MENSA is that they're a bunch of egotistical nerds. Not a particularly social or interesting group of people. So while I am sure some what you say does go on, I'm not sure how much. I think most of them probably belong just so they can say so.
Speaking of which, my graduate school admissions test (Miller Analogies) qualified me to join. Same with my wife. We had no interest in joining.(I had no idea but a friend of mine pointed this out so I checked their website and our scores - just for fun.)
What they should be a social group? Since little they felt to be different from the most people. The thoughts of ordinary people are ridiculous, for them. Maybe because of their high IQ they were treated bad at school. They prefer to stay with their similars, and share/discuss thgeir intellectual idea without problems and misunderstanding and very fast. All things quite hard to realize with ordinary people. I understand them.

I have no idea about how reliable was your test but you don't seem that intelligent.

Enjoyed also our full-day tour of the Vatican/Museum etc. I also like the way the way people there do not go out to dinner until 9 or 10 at night. Here it's more like 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Here the majority of people eat between 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Those few who eat at 10 p.m. or later are the ones who are going to restaurants but are a bit late because they were waiting some friend(s) who usually are not in time.

Here only children eat at 6:30 p.m.

Sure it does.
Why do I need to participate in a religion (or any other activity) in order to know what the central beliefs are??
I know what Republicans believe and but I'm not one.
I know the basic beliefs of Christians are but I'm agnostic.
Being raised Catholic no doubt helps a bit.
You though it ironic that a "nonbeliever" was correcting the record re Christianity.
Why?
You proven it doesn't.

Wikipedia is a useful tool full of useful information.
Any encyclopedia is only a secondary or tertiary source of information. An aggregator if you will.
Vigilance does? Once I was reading an anrticle on Wiki and I found typed something like muahahahahahahah". After few months it was still there. Maybe it was my bad they were having a long strike, isn't it? LOL
There could be a group of volunteer contributors and editors but I wonder if they vision all the wiki pages, and how vast is their knowledge, and how they can know an information that can be as true as false, having nothing to back it up?
Anyone you, me and other people can modify any wiki page and other may let or change it, but still if the information you gave is unknown to the folks even if it wrong you can bet it will be there for long time.

rabbee: well i do not think, that the alleged jewish religious hierarchy was happy. about any one questioning, whether they were or were not involved in monotheistic worship any more. when i am pretty suuuure, the accusation was that they were no longer monotheistic.
I don't see them as monotheistic, but rather as monolatristic. So the accusation was that maybe they were no longer monolatristic.

Are you minimally aware that those tests you wrote about Mensa are jokes and that there are not online tests that can be used for admission to Mensa?

So, if the questions are "jokes" then can you spot the error in the question posted above that I'm re-posting for you?

Find a 4 digit number in which the 1st digit is 1/5th the last, and the 2nd and 3rd digits are the last digit multiplied by 3.

rabbee: well i am a lot better informed from G-D, than any one is willing to give me credit for. and i gave up a lot of mental tolerance, when i accepted who G-D came and said i am.

and i have never been, free to be me. i have no effect, on my own destiny in TheTorah so far. the only chance i may have to do that, is when G-D takes off for the day of rest soon.

there ain't nothing happening here, that has not happened any different than the last two times. G-D has given this exact same story, with all the exact same talking critters claiming to not be here in IT.

the last two time, this worlds grandmother ran off with mr lizard lips. and she just, did it again. it't like i have no effect, on what she thinks she chooses to do. since this is the way, this story always goes, for this world not true to G-D here in TheTorah. and i wished you all, would all quit doing! that.
