Like I said, the concept of work is developed more thoroughly in the latter verses of the text. So we do know quite a lot about what it is and what it isnt.<quoted text>How important are we that the very creation of the universe should revolve around our relatively tiny sun on the outer edges of a standard spiral galaxy?
G-d gave it the heave-ho and then "rested," whatever that means, considering that the universe exists at all because G-d wills it to exist, which is an exertion of force, a.k.a., WORK, as we define it, but what in the hell do we know about anything as it relates to G-d?
(I leave out the "o" in G-d as a concession to J-wish sensibilities.)
There are a lot of things to nit pick in the text. The sun is but a smidgeon of them. Lower hanging fruit includes talking donkeys, burning bushes, and in the case of your scriptures, the entire Jesus story.
Dont feel like you have to leave out the "o" just for me. It's not my tradition. It is Eric's though. My tradition is to respect the Hebrew names, not the English names.
