Skipping some pages.<quoted text>
It's hard to tell the difference between arrogance and simple stupidity, you're not there yet. We write stuff we don't intend to sometimes. Happens to me all the time.
God in a glass/cube can be tested by raising a child in isolation through full growth. No languages, no religions, no numbers. Pure isolation will most likely yield what the American Indians were or close to it. As long as the great conquistadores don't come and show him/her the errors of his/her way, I think we'd find that the child wouldn't know God. But then again, what if after 18 yrs in the cube, the kid immediately knows God and Jesus? Would be a good experiment, not very nice, but still a good experiment.
I bet we could learn a lot of things and possibly prove some things one way or the other.
I am still looking for someone to explain to me why Jesus didn't manifest Himself to the American Indians and to many others. Doesn't seem to be something that is written in the books. An all powerful God would have reached out to all. Pick Jesus and the Jews to tell the world he was here? I probably have this all mixed up. The catholic religion?
Things to ponder. What if there is no God? What if the stories we read were tainted with man's self-interests? If there is a God, do we expect Him/Her to be like us?
I came upon this remark (apart from things in the torah, the exodus book on when also the mispath i.e. civil law was given, that are called chok, as in can not be understood by mankind, like f.i. shabbos or the parable about the heifer that seems to make what is pure tamei, and what is tamei -unpure- pure.) that Rashi did not mention honour thy father and mother because it was self-evident to do, but at the same time leaving the puzzle as to when that was stated before or even whether that was so self-evident since i take it to mean keep what is good in your tradition and remember that. As in not everything was written down.
I would look at what is left of native-america's traditions to find out what ideas vigorated also in the larger world thousands of years ago. Let's say our genetic forebears.
But as to either kids or gods in a glass (some line in the gospel compares spirit to strong drink) and some people like Hugh Be here who seem to know it all, but live in denial:
The Torah characterizes a person as a sinner against his soul when he denies himself wine in pursuit of a spiritual level that is beyond his grasp.
