Regarding Leviticus, what I've always said is that Levitical Laws are for the Levites, not everyone.
If you dared to pay attention, you'd know that.

<quoted text>Understanding "God"? IMO - our physical human forms cannot understand "God".

EDITED FOR SPACE

I didn't "stay in the box' when others cuddled in their corners with comfort, experience helped, and just opening my mind to the world we live in.
Religion gives one comfort, knowing oneself gives the comfort to others.
I appreciate the answers. And just know I am not saying this next part to be rude or disrespectful, it just simply contains an observation and a question that requires me to be blunt.

The observation is I have noticed a pattern of you putting down Christianity and those in the faith. And it seems indicative of what you said in this post, that while others stayed in a comfort zone you thought outside the box. But your beliefs are basically you think a higher life form created us, but must not have cared because it doesn't intervene and didn't stick around to monitor us right? So I guess my first question is, what is so outside the box about that? Basically anybody that has left the faith but still believes something was behind our creation thinks that. Literally every person I know that has left the faith says something may or may not exist and be behind our creation but it doesn't care or get involved. That we are like ants to it and it worries about us the same way we worry about ants.

And you seem to have a lot of disdain for Christians and saying they created God in their image and it is just their opinion they follow. But I see no facts on your side. Just guesses. If something exists it was probably behind creating us. And you are guessing from zero proof of its existence and no proof of intervention that the lack of either must be evidence that it neither cares or is still around. And i know you said we can't understand God yet you claim to know what God isn't. How do you know God doesn't share human traits? And how do you know we can't understand God? If the God you are talking about is simply a higher alien life form, why would that be so hard to understand in our human forms? Isn't just you lack the information to know anything about this alien life-force..if it exists at all?

And if you were to write down these beliefs and someone were to read them hundreds of years from now, would they be fools to believe you? Wouldn't they just be trusting the opinion of some man? Yet the authors of the bible did a lot more than guess. There were first hand accounts such as Peter and people who walked with and lived with Jesus that witnessed the miracles and believed. Outside historians confirm Jesus lived, was believed to be the son of God by his followers and was crucified.

I am not trying to attack you or your beliefs. But like I said, the situation made it difficult not to be blunt. I simply don't see why it is you are so condescending towards Christianity and why you think you have done anything other than make some very common guesses once you left the faith? Or why you feel your belief system is based on more or is anything more than the opinion of one man compared to Christians who believe the dozens of men who wrote about someone we know existed and was believed to be the son of God during His time on Earth. Maybe food for thought going forward is all.

(T) Peace

You are running to tell people what happened in another room?

If anybody was gonna smack a bitch, you would be the bitch

I seriously am waiting for the day you wake up and think "you know, I am supposedly a Harvard lawyer. I am gonna stop making Topix such a huge thing in my life where i back-stab people hoping a girl will like me for it. And I am gonna stop following people to different rooms or reporting what happens in other rooms or reporting people's whereabouts to others in a different room or trying to dictate who is friends with who is a chat-room". Or any number of things that just shout "I am a huge insecure wuss"

You don't even get how ridiculous you look is the bizarre thing. You are like a bitchy grade-school chick yet also insecure. Kudos 'counselor'

Sorry if I wasn't clear.

I didn't mean to imply that you smacked Ben.

It was your wife you smacked.

I was asking whether the smack was preceded by taunts.

Taunts like the ones you used at Ben.

It's so easy to see how your violent nature reflects itself, in your words and in your actions.

Defending Ben is now your motivation huh?

When just the other day you threw him under the bus and looked to get a laugh at his expense with your dorky white sheet comment?

You noticed you didn't get a response to that right? Even the person you were trying to curry favor with thought it was lame. But yeah, might as well pretend to care again right> At least until something comes up with it might benefit you not to. Heck, maybe a straight girl will t-mail you? Oh wouldn't that be a big day?

Zebach Sh'lamim (in Hebrew)Zebach Sh'lamim: Peace Offering
A peace offering is an offering expressing thanks or gratitude to G-d for His bounties and mercies. The Hebrew term for this type of offering is zebach sh'lamim (or sometimes just sh'lamim), which is related to the word shalom, meaning "peace" or "whole." A representative portion of the offering is burnt on the altar, a portion is given to the kohanim, and the rest is eaten by the offerer and his family; thus, everyone gets a part of this offering. This category of offerings includes thanksgiving-offerings (in Hebrew, Todah, which was obligatory for survivors of life-threatening crises), free will-offerings, and offerings made after fulfillment of a vow. Note that this class of offerings has nothing to do with sin; in fact, the Talmud states that in the age of the messiah (when there is no more sin), this will be the only class of offering that is brought to the Temple.
Chatat (in Hebrew)Chatat: Sin Offering
A sin offering is an offering to atone for and purge a sin. It is an expression of sorrow for the error and a desire to be reconciled with G-d. The Hebrew term for this type of offering is chatat, from the word chayt, meaning "missing the mark." A chatat could only be offered for unintentional sins committed through carelessness, not for intentional, malicious sins. The size of the offering varied according to the nature of the sin and the financial means of the sinner. Some chatatot are individual and some are communal. Communal offerings represent the interdependence of the community, and the fact that we are all responsible for each others' sins. A few special chatatot could not be eaten, but for the most part, for the average person's personal sin, the chatat was eaten by the kohanim.
Asham (in Hebrew)Asham: Guilt Offering
A guilt offering is an offering to atone for sins of stealing things from the altar, for when you are not sure whether you have committed a sin or what sin you have committed, or for breach of trust. The Hebrew word for a guilt offering is asham. When there was doubt as to whether a person committed a sin, the person would make an asham, rather than a chatat, because bringing a chatat would constitute admission of the sin, and the person would have to be punished for it. If a person brought an asham and later discovered that he had in fact committed the sin, he would have to bring a chatat at that time. An asham was eaten by the kohanim.
Minchah (in Hebrew)Food and Drink Offerings
A meal offering (minchah) represented the devotion of the fruits of man's work to G-d, because it was not a natural product, but something created through man's effort. A representative piece of the offering was burnt on the fire of the altar, but the rest was eaten by the kohanim.
There are also offerings of undiluted wine, referred to as nesekh. "

Education is one of the commandments of Judaism. It is why most Jewish denominations require the learning of Hebrew and make it a requirement for conversion.
While the Christian churches for over 1000 years used Latin and Greek Bibles to keep the population from being able to read scriptures, the Jews for 3000 years demand that all Jews know and understand the ancient texts in the language they were written.
How much different Christianity would be if a requirement was to read the OT in the original Hebrew and the NT in the original Koine Greek for the last 1700 years.
I honestly, wish they would have. I am certain, we would be better educated especially if we were able to get our hands on the first scrolls, instead of those who have chosen to take what they wanted out. Change words that have two or three meanings, for their preference. I was astonished when I found out how many times the Bible had been rewritten over time.
