Yes, the Jewish tradition repeatedly affirms the immutable sanctity of the Torah’s words — but it also treats the Torah as an unbound book to which each generation adds. The stories that the Torah generates, the rabbinic conversations those stories elicit, these form the the basis of midrash, which is created anew with each transmission. Nachum Lamm, known as Norman Lamm, entered the rabbinate just as the second half of the twentieth century was getting underway. In he was ordained at the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary at Yeshiva University (YU), where he had previously earned a degree in chemistry. In he would go on to complete a PhD in Jewish Philosophy at YU’s Bernard Revel Graduate School.

Sutton's book 'The Best Enemy Money Can Buy' shows that Soviet military technology before the Cold War is heavily dependent on U.S. and allied 'gifts'. Eustace Mullins, a popular history realist of the 60ss documented the truth about the Cold War Hoax. The book I’m suggesting here is The Singularity is Near, published in The reason why I point people to it is that it’s very rigorous. A lot of people think Kurzweil is a snake-oil salesman or somebody selling a religious dream. I don’t agree. I don’t agree with everything he says and he is very controversial.

The Singularity is Near isn't a book for the fainthearted, but for visionaries and inventors. Ray Kurzweil has mapped out a version of the unpredictable, evolving future of the universe.   Podcast (torah): Download (Duration: — MB) Subscribe: Android | RSS The Second Principle of Jewish Faith declares that God is One. But not like one of a pair; and not like one of a group; and not like one person that can be divided into many [smaller] units; and not like a thing which is numerically one but can be infinitely divided, rather He – God, may He be blessed – is.
