Re: Torah stuff that doesnt make sense
That would be relevant to something I dont understand, this doesnt make sense.. but go ahead and enlighten me
Astronomy, most sciences, and accounting make no sense to me either. Because I donít understand any of it.

+1 I'm getting tiered of people on DDF posting their deep klotz kashes on many aspects of Torah and mesorah while being utterly clueless about the subject matter.
There's one guy who had the temerity to say he no longer believe in chazal because of his "questions", meanwhile he probably hasn't studied more than 25 pages of shas (and on a grade school level at that!). Pathetic.

OP apparently has the same machla, he reads some random books or blogs, (aka seforim chitzonim), then he has big klotz kashes, where things " don't make any sense", and sometimes should be totally "abolished".  All based on his finger nail deep immersive research..

Re: Torah stuff that doesnt make sense
Regarding how I phase my statements is y business, you could be more open minded and engage @TimT  @Mordyk
It is the business of anyone who would respond as to whether they want to participate in a conversation based on that premise and they are saying that they don't want to. It is somewhat ridiculous to have read the entirety of one paragraph which wasn't even meant to be anything more than a cursory overview as a preface to more extensive study and claim that anything makes no sense. Of course you don't understand t. You didn't study the topic!

Re: Torah stuff that doesnt make sense
Would this be correct? You can question things for the purpose of understanding why they are true but not question if they are true?
You can question if something is true, but in order to do so you must have a great deal of knowledge on the topic. Like @timt s post, it would be ludicrous for some non college educated guy to disagree with a doctors recommendations, based on years of research, to get vaccinated. He can question why, and try with his limited knowledge, to understand the subject at hand, but to have an opinion on the veracity of vaccination is misguided at best.

Re: Torah stuff that I don't understand
This is my issue with all religions. It is the word of G-d but travels thru man to the rest of us. Man is corrupt so that is a big problem.
And therein lies the faith aspect of religion. Otherwise, "a little birdie told me to write this", would be (and in fact is) the foundation of soem religions.

The way it was explained to me when i asked the question was as follows: Us Jews celebrate the holidays because our parents celebrated them back to time immemorial. Our parents are not liars so we inherently believe that they received this tradition going back to its origin. Therefore, the biblical narrative must be true.

If that is the case then we celebrate Shavuos, which memorializes the receipt of the Torah at Sinai. So part of the narrative that Moses ascended to Heaven and came down with the Tablets is fact. Then what part of Judaism requires faith?

The part that has him writing down everything else besides what he came down with.

Its oversimplified but I hope it helps.

Re: Ben Shapiro I have mixed feelings about how he deals with and debates religion, monotheism, and Judaism
He piggybacks his aurguments upon our heritage, but then waters it all down...
