You really have no idea what the Torah is for, do you?...

That was becoming obvious. Tell me what the difference is between a law and a principle.

The purpose of the question was to make you THINK. If you don't want to think you may continue in your fog.

The best communicators do not obfuscate, but make clear statements.

That is something you may want to inspire to. This thread is about what the 10 Commandments lack. I gave three clear moral concepts it completely missed.

Now, either comment on them in a cogent manner, or quite the dance.

You now sound like a what many would say is a typical apologist, one who revels in obfuscation, never able to give a clear answer.

Congratulations.
