The Law of Moses created many problems for those who attempted to follow it. Still does today. Ask any Jewish person. I have. One answer was, "I do the best I can." Another said, "I tried, but now I realize that doing mitzvah is the most important. So I try to help other people more."

Mitzvah:

In its primary meaning, the Hebrew word mitzvah ("commandment", &#1502;&#1460;&#15 10;&#1456;&#1493;& #1464;&#1492;,[mit&#86 5;s&#712;va], Biblical: mi&#7779;wah; plural &#1502;&#1460;&#15 10;&#1456;&#1493;& #1493;&#1465;&#1514; mitzvot [mit&#865;s&#712;vot], Biblical: mi&#7779;woth; from &#1510;&#1460;&#14 93;&#1464;&#1468;& #1492; &#7779;iwwah "command") refers to precepts and commandments as commanded by God. It is a word used in Judaism to refer to the 613 commandments given in the Torah (at Mount Sinai, where all the Jews accepted the Torah, saying "We will do, and we will listen") and the seven rabbinic commandments instituted later for a total of 620. According to the teachings of Judaism, all moral laws are, or are derived from, divine commandments.

Good luck with the 613 laws and statutes Smirky.

Democracy. Drama and literature that serve as the backbone of the written arts. Sculptures that changed the artform forever. Architecture and engineering advances that led to styles that persist thousands of years later. You know, that.

Does that make Zeus real?

Only if one defines "Jewish/Judaism" as meaning Pharisaic Judaism.

Karaites have a different take.

That's probably true. It certainly set us back a couple of millennia.

And yet, the tiny Jewish culture survives and stands head and shoulders above any other.

How do you explain that?

Nice gay twirl.

Greeks accepted all gods.

You seek to attribute things that had nothing to do with those gods. Especially one expression.

In fact, the literature about those god's only expose the frailties of human nature.

Moreover, Greek mythology was a blip in human history time.

But keep trying...

Marriage unites humanities' past and future in the present.
An ordered flow of life.

Ss couples are a defective aberration of nature.
A momentary blip in time.
An orientation that serves no purpose and has no future

Very true. It is hard to avoid stereotypes but my point was that even those who follow the Hebrew Scripture do so with great difficulty unless they become slaves to it as the most Orthodox do.

And the Babylonians before them. The Egyptians before that.

The fact is, Christianity has ruled over the most profound growth of knowledge in all human history. The exact opposite of what you claimed.

Einstein was probably one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century. Einstein was NOT Christian.

Never said he was, but he was in the Western world, and he had a Jewish heritage. You know, all those laws that the Alien predicted would make the Jews a profound culture.
