How is it pronounced?
Ask your Rabbi MOD CUT, or get a tutor to teach you to read Hebrew.

The original pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton has been lost, owing to the strong Jewish disapproval of pronouncing the name.

Nobody knows how it is pronounced. Guess you need the Reform Jew to explain these things to you since they neglected to tell you girls in the Orthodox schools.

Reform Jews don't know how it's pronounced because they can't read Hebrew.

Just like Orthodox Jews don't know how evolution works because they don't understand Science.

As if reform Jews understand evolution. As a matter of fact, nobody understands evolution. How does it feel to have evolved from an ape? Remember when you tried to explain it, but couldn't.

That's interesting. So the Reform think it's a version of mental illness to think woman came from man's rib. But man coming from ape is perfectly normal? Sounds a bit hypocritical, no?

If you took any class dealing in genetics or general biology, you would actually learn a thing or two. I believe in higher education for this reason.

I have a college degree and took biology, chemistry and the whole gamut of life sciences. I'm a six figured professional working at Fortune 100 company managing a large team of professionals. But man used to be a monkey? How is that less crazy than woman came from man?

TFF, if you are as learned as you depict yourself as, I suggest that you invest some time reading up on Belief Perseverance. It is one of my favorite theories concerning the Psychology courses I take and I see countless applications for it on this forum when dealing with you and Iwish.

If you think man used to be a monkey, I don't think you learned much in your biology class.


Oh, one other thing. How come you had absolutely no problem with this lovely remark from Iwish?
