You show your ignorant inability to argue the Bible. You fail to note the general Hebrew term used most likely did not even refer to Hansen's disease.<quoted text>
Lev. 14:4 Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:
14:5 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water:
14:6 As for the living bird, he shall take it , and the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water:
14:7 And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose into the open field.
They made me smile, too. Do you think a god wrote that?
This is the World Health Organization's version:
Multibacillary (MB) leprosy - For adults the standard regimen is: Rifampicin: 600 mg once a month Dapsone: 100 mg daily Clofazimine: 300 mg once a month and 50 mg daily for 12 months.
Paucibacillary (PB) leprosy - For adults the standard regimen is: Rifampicin: 600 mg once a month Dapsone: 100 mg daily for six months
Single Skin Lesion Paucibacillary leprosy - For adults the standard regimen is a single dose of: Rifampicin: 600 mg Ofloxacin: 400 mg Minocycline: 100 mg
Men wrote that. How do you account for the differences? Which do you trust?
Moreover, you show your bias by avoiding the issue of quarantine and cleansing expressly commanded in the passage. Something that would expose a knowledge of germs and infection.
First the Alien radiation, now leprosy. Wonder what will be strike three?
