The burden of proof is on you here. This isn't the kind of scholarship that you find on Wikipedia or in the religion aisle of Barnes & Noble.

Actually, while I can't be bothered looking, I'd be surprised if at least a gist of it isn't available on Wikipedia. Perhaps the article about the Torah.

In the meantime, why not you provide a link that says Moses wrote the Torah?

Now now, let's not team up on somebody because of their beliefs.

Even if they're bullshit.

It's true. Thoughts we can debate and argue.

Beliefs? Those are sacred. We get to have those unchallenged.

Iron Horse is Iron Horse.

I think we all know his MO. It's amazing how we keep prodding him to do something different.

That said, it does a feel a little ugly in here tonight. . .

Well more importantly because 'debating' beliefs always ends up in a pissing match.

There's no amount of internet chat that can change the way somebody thinks.
