I only get a certain part of that either. Not having topic sentences or conclusions makes it difficult to follow.

I noticed Sea is back as well, writing as 'amused' in one of the threads.

I usually state it's the recollection of material throughout IsraŽls and Judahs history.
So reflecting relations and believes of others in the territory as well.
Together forming a guide through the history.
Experience and do's and don't s for the territory.
If we read that all (including the coastal towns, egypt ,aram and arabs') but not Edom(later nabbatea) fought against assyria, We can understand antagonism in a later era.
That we see plenty of treaties, so you could also call the H.B. a log-book of Canaanite people.
And i'm a bit wary of the socalled sources-theory priestly, Elohist etc.
Western eyes and philosophy in action.
Just as greeks and romans were the new-comers in general and strangers looking on and interpreting events through their xeno-phobia and fear.
Mind these two groups were also new in Greece and Italy.(DNA allover the place)
So instead of being the cradle of civilisation, they are rather the myth producing barbarians.
Myth as instrument of correction (keep your women in the home lest they become like the amazons) and explanations of this strange new territory.
I would put christianity in the same category.
So you believe the text is more of historic significance and not
the words of god as taken down by scribes?

I profess ignorance on the math principles. My geometry teacher was a stoner, and the only math I ever excelled in was AP Calculus.
<quoted text>
Although I defer to your recusal, those weeds ARE important, and each point I previously spent quite a bit of time getting into. They are at the heart of why I do not believe theistic belief is at the center of the beliefs that are relevant.
(managed to work belief into that sentence 3 times! pretty good...)
Here's a good run-down of the math principles.

Not too many words, I promise!

Christian= atheist according to the old definition (I take it Frioles reads along), saves a long discussion.

God is defined as life, land and people and a Mutual contract between all parties involved.
Land also: Since Isaiah fi. uses Israel as metaphore and at one point also wife of gd.
Elohim also means judges as well as elders and children of El.
And a phychology that goes from infancy as a symbiotic bond, through adolescent schizoid phases, towards ordinary neurotic to then take the shape of an integrated welrounded being.

We find the religion and history are intermingled.(mono' thus, and gd being all forms)
And unique in a gd sharing the same experiences with all.

Ritual as reliving main events of significance.

Part of the writing is seen as Law instead of gd thus divine in origin.
Which provides authority and when some laws are not understood this is to be interpreted as god as rahmaan-mercy and ultimate justice, who is the only one knowing all aspects of a case, where people might fail.
I at least learn from that to give mercy.
It is the part were principles of law are forwarded.( Eric excels in explaining this.)

For the more esotherical i revert to Frijoles.

But to take at face-value all that scribes wrote down...no.
Doubt and discussion are normal.
Not mindless iteration.

You of highest luck, to have Dutch cousin of the easy brain jogging first.

Telegram style.
I see these responses as quickies.(Next time i just use yes and no. Did you by any form of imagination think that a requested exposee on ' the OT' could be dealt with in a few clear sentences?)

My mind is on fideism and nihilism and how to crack Eusebius'authority.*
Since for some reason ' no extant writing 'does not work to remove the fiction apologetics uphold.
And Former, given your upbringing, even atheistic still a yard-stick to measure others by.
As is obvious from using OT for HB, though they are clearly not the same.
---
* I discovered Armenia and it's invented past is a usefull sinkhole, that makes tracking historicity and sources impossible.
---
My conclusion is that god is not important:
If millions of people- an entire political system, countless citizens believing in god - say they are going to kill you, you better listen.

Experience and Law as well as having land and people behind me ,is.

Hugh---- Greetings to both of you. Now Eric please help me to understand the discussion by responding to the following---

1. What are you calling stigma?
2. Tell me how long must the families live there to be called "just Americans?
3. Do you call yourself American or you use the stigma of Jewish American?
4. Have you ever used the word African American of this forum? If so why the stigma?

<quoted text>By the way, Hugh, is that any way to be talking on the Day of the Resurrection? Should you be talking about lusting after another Christian to whom you are not married?
Eric---I figured it out...He(Hugh) likes peanut butter because he can't get it up!

HughBe---- Correct Eric but let me complete your thought by adding ---when I bend over BUT not when my sister does.

Now take a look at the completed sentence below.

"He/Hugh likes peanut butter because he can't get it up!" when I bend over BUT not when my sister does.

Eric---Should you be talking about lusting after another Christian to whom you are not married?

Hugh----My dear Eric, look at the context and understand that it was a joke. That aside I should not be lusting after women that I am not married to but fact is I do. Anyhow I am happy,in a normal way, to learn that you have an intelligent sister--a seed of Israel.

Finally, don't be jealousy you have Frijoles who will tickle you.

Much love, Mon.

1. What are you calling stigma?

Joel's use of White v. Asian.

2. Tell me how long must the families live there to be called "just Americans?

About 1 milli-second after being granted resident status.

3. Do you call yourself American or you use the stigma of Jewish American?

I have never referred to myself as a Jewish American. Two separate but equal concepts.

4. Have you ever used the word African American of this forum? If so why the stigma?

I use the word African American because it is the term that African Americans choose to use for themselves and request that other use when referring to them. It is my way of respecting their wishes. When they wanted to be called Blacks, I called them Blacks. When they changed to African Americans, I called them African Americans. I respect their wishes.

Lusting over my sister is not a joke. Women deserve better. Especially on a day that they hold holy--The Day of the Resurrection. Keep your mind out of the sewer especially when referring to someone I love.
