Please let me know...

I would like to ask those who understand the material that I present on this blog to contact me and let me know that you exist :)

It seems to me that very few people (if at all) understand God and Torah from the scientific, rational and logical perspective. Most Torah-centric people that I have encountered were under the influence of religion and were unable to critically and rationally understand the Torah text.

Especially I am interested in hearing from people who understand either my calendar or my Tabernacle design. If you exist, please let me know.

And I also want to hear from women who visit my blog. It seems to me that even fewer women understand my material and Torah-centric philosophy so I would love to hear otherwise.

Thank you.

Happy New Year!

Just wanted to wish you all happy and better new year!

New Year begins on 04/15/2018 after Sunset.

This year Spring Equinox was a few days after the New Moon, which delayed the spring and the harvest.

If you live in Canaan you should be able to confirm that coming month is indeed the Month of Abib (ripening) as all spring crops in Canaan should be very close to harvest which should begin around 05/2018.

About the 10th of the 1st and 7th Months

As you know from the Torah, traditional date for Taking of Passover Lamb and Yom Kippur is the 10th of the 1st and 7th month respectively. Obviously, this date is incorrect because there is no major Moon Phase on the 10th.

In fact, as I explained on my blog, the 10th date does not appear anywhere else in the Torah.

Think about it, if we really to take Passover Lamb on the 10th, it would mean that we have to keep it until 14th evening, which makes it 5 days between the taking of the Lamb and its slaughter. This number of days obviously does not make any sense. On the contrary, Leviticus 22:27 says that usually the animal is kept for 7 days and slaughtered on the 8th.

So as you can see, the 10th and resulting 5 days of keeping of the Lamb do not have any support in the Torah. So it is obviously a clear case of intentional edit of the Torah.

In my calendar, we take Passover Lamb on the 8th and keeping it until 14th evening which makes it exactly 7 days which is similar to the above-cited Lev 22:27.

So it is very clear to me that the 10th is the date from the 1st Temple time and it was a result of intentional editing of the Torah to justify the Temple Cult.

When did Chavah (Eve) die?

When did Chavah (Eve) die?

Let's take a look at what Torah says:
YLT Gn 5:5 And all the days of Adam which he lived are nine hundred and thirty years, and he dieth.
As you can see, Torah never says when did Adam's wife Chavah died. So most likely answer here is she died together with her husband.

Adam and Chavah shared a very strong and unique bond as they were the first people and they have experienced Garden of Eden and its fruits. So it would be very logical to assume that these two people would age and die together, meaning that Chavah was also 930 years old when she died.

I am pretty sure that Adam was monogamous and faithful to Chavah due to this special bond. I do not think Adam would be happy with someone other than Chavah after all they have been through together.

And here is the whole passage that also supports such view:
YLT Gn 5:1 This is an account of the births of Adam: In the day of God's preparing man, in the likeness of God He hath made him; 
YLT Gn 5:2 a male and a female He hath prepared them, and He blesseth them, and calleth their name Adam, in the day of their being prepared. 
YLT Gn 5:3 And Adam liveth an hundred and thirty years, and begetteth a son in his likeness, according to his image, and calleth his name Seth. 
YLT Gn 5:4 And the days of Adam after his begetting Seth are eight hundred years, and he begetteth sons and daughters. 
YLT Gn 5:5 And all the days of Adam which he lived are nine hundred and thirty years, and he dieth.
So as you can see from underlined verses, in this passage Torah refers to both man and a woman as Adam. This is why it is most certainly possible to interpret Genesis 5:5 as referring both to Adam and Chavah.

So I think it is pretty clear from this passage that Adam and Chavah died together at the age of 930 years.

Explicit proof from the Torah of the original 360 days year.

The question was raised to me: Where is the original 360 days year evidence?

Let's take a look at what Torah says:
YLT Gn 7:11 In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, in this day have been broken up all fountains of the great deep, and the net-work of the heavens hath been opened, 
YLT Gn 7:24 and the waters are mighty on the earth a hundred and fifty days
YLT Gn 8:3 And turn back do the waters from off the earth, going on and returning; and the waters are lacking at the end of a hundred and fifty days
YLT Gn 8:4 And the ark resteth, in the seventh month, in the seventeenth day of the month, on mountains of Ararat;
As you can see, Noah has traveled in the Ark for 150 days, from 2/17 to 7/17. This can only mean that all months were 30 days and the year was 360 days because it is the only way to get 150 days count between given dates. 30x5=150

So as you can see, the evidence is pretty direct and indisputable.

As I said on my blog, the current cycle is different from this original one, which is why we have to add the 13th month and have 2 Shabbats in a row at the end of some months sometimes.

And as I said, the cycle has changed due to the flood, which caused one continent (Pangea) to split into what we know now. This caused the earth to speed up and it also affected Solar and Lunar cycles.

Hope now it is clear what was the original Torah year. It was exactly 360 days for both the Sun and the Moon.

Where are the Aliens?

Torah is explicit that there is a more advanced form of life somewhere out there. See Genesis 6:2-4.

So where are they?

Well, statistically speaking and considering the size of the universe, there is gotta be tons of aliens out there. So logic dictates only two options...
  1. They are among us even today but they choose to blend in.
  2. They are not really interested in us and just rarely observing us from a distance because we are not advanced enough.
Both of these theories are valid and both most likely true. In fact, New Testament claims to be an account of one such alien (son of God actually) who could walk on water and do other nifty tricks. But since it contradicts the Torah, I can't say that it is a legitimate account in my opinion.

Also, today we have a few video footages of a UFOs that also may or may not be a legitimate proof.

In fact, as I discussed in my previous posts, not only sentient aliens look like us (should be almost exact human form) but some of them must have the Torah and the Tabernacle.

Torah itself states that there are at least "Sons of God", which can only mean that there is gotta be much more aliens than just His sons.

It is just the matter of time until we will encounter them on a society level. In fact, based on the Torah, we already have encountered them before, which can only mean that it only takes time until it will happen again.

P.S. There can definitely be non-human aliens (like with 5 tentacles and 10 eyes) because there are many planets that are different from Earth. However, I am absolutely certain that they would be considered animal aliens and they would be far less advanced compared to human aliens. God Himself said that we are made in His image and every other form of life is for our domination because it is not in His image. Only lifeforms in His image are considered human and thus most advanced aliens also human(oid).

Can we restore the Tabernacle?

Can we restore the Tabernacle, especially considering verses of Exodus 25:9 and Exodus 25:40?

Yes, I think we can!

While the complete Tabernacle design was revealed directly to Moses on Mt. Sinai in a vision, this does not mean that we need Moses to rebuild it. This is because the Tabernacle was revealed, built and used before. And as Deut 29:29 clearly states that what was revealed is our forever. It can't be hidden back from us.

So while it is possible that complete rebuilding of the Tabernacle may require a prophet, I am absolutely sure that we can at least START rebuilding the structure.

I think that if God would see that we ALL want His Tabernacle and Presence in our midst, He would send us necessary guidance to do it.

I refuse to believe in the rabbinic lie that we can't do anything right now. In fact, I severely despise the rabbis for spreading this way of thinking.

Yes, rabbis have a point. Our world is really messed up. However, I do not think that waiting for Messiah is the right answer either. As I explained on my blog, if we wait for Messiah we will all die when he will come. So while it may be necessary, I simply refuse to believe in this and accept it as a solution to the problem.

Yes, the Law repeats itself because it is eternal! But I also believe that at some point it is possible to escape this endless cycle and establish permanent peace and happiness. In fact, Torah promises just that.

So it is my absolute opinion that we can do it ourselves. The only real obstacle that we have is our own desire to do it. God is NOT preventing us from rebuilding the Tabernacle!

So please help me spread the word so that we can rebuild God's Tent and fulfill the Law!


Curses of Deuteronomy are very real!

Curses of Deuteronomy are very real!

When I first understood the curses of Deuteronomy I was literally shocked. I simply could not believe how accurate and precise Torah was at describing the times we currently live in. Not only Torah got all of it correctly, there were other curses that has not come to pass yet.

The curses can be found primarily in Deuteronomy 28+ but there is a bit in Leviticus as well.

God is really pissed off at us! Not only He cursed us but He also has chosen to hide from us (Deut 31:18 and 32:20) which is why many people question His existence right now.

I personally experienced many of these curses so I can vouch for every word that Torah says. Not only these curses are very real but they are unbelievably painful and sadistic. And the worst part is that I absolutely can't get angry at God for these curses because I understand that I fully deserve it.

These curses are also something unavoidable! God did not speak these curses in vain so they will be fulfilled completely and thoroughly. There is absolutely no escape from these curses in our time so prepare yourself if you have not experienced them yet. And if you are experiencing any of these curses right now, please stay strong, resilient and do not succumb to evil. 

So what are we to do and what lessons can we learn from this?

First of all, you must continue to observe as many commandments as you can, the best you can. There is no Tabernacle so it is not really possible to properly observe most of the commandments. However, you still must do what you can to do and observe the Law. Yes, it is mostly in vain but right now God is judging us by our intentions and understanding rather than pure compliance and precision. So, in reality, observing the commands is never in vain. If you do what you can the best you can, God will greatly lessen the effects of the curses. Yes, He is not going to remove them completely but at least He may make it bearable.

Secondly, we must accept the punishment and live with the cards we were dealt. This is the hardest part. It is very hard to understand and accept these curses. And it is even harder to live with them. Why me? Why I was born at this horrible time/place? However, if you sincerely do what you can to observe the Law, God will show mercy and lessen the effects of His curses on you.

Because of these two things, it is very important for us to return to the Law and to God and our ultimate goal should be the rebuilding of the Tabernacle. Only when we restore the Mishkan, God will turn our curses into blessings as He has promised. The restoration of the Tabernacle is our proof before God that we are ready to do what He wants completely and without any hesitation.

How do the Moon observations add up in the 1st Month?

How do the Moon observations add up in the 1st Month?

Thanks to a few years of my Moon Observations (see April 2017) I observed that in the 1st Month on a day of Unleavened Yom Atzeret (8th of Unleavened) the Moon is only visible in the morning. 

What does it mean?

It means that even though the Moon phases are a bit off in the 1st Month, we could only observe the 3rd Quarter Phase in the Morning. This means that the Moon has time to get VISIBLY in phase.

Yes, the calculated phase is off, however, we still VISIBLY see the moon in the correct phase simply because it is not visible while it is out of phase.

This is why I said in my previous posts that we need to use calculations AND observations of the moon TOGETHER to determine the proper days for moedim (appointed times).

Correct rendering of the Transportation of the Furniture of the Tabernacle

Here is the correct rendering of the procession when the Tabernacle Furniture was transported.


As you can see, there are a few changes compared to my old rendering:

  1. Notice that the Ark Staves are placed along the long side of the Ark
  2. The Ark was covered on top with Tahash skins, not with blue covering.
  3. Table of Showbread Staves are also placed along the long side of the Table.
  4. Table of Showbread was transported by 2 people just like the Altar of Incense because their weight appears to be about the same. Dimensions of the Table and the Altar of Incense are also about the same.
  5. And The Laver is shown to be transported separately on a bar just like Sanctuary Utensils.
So as you can see, it would require 4+2+2+2+2+2+4= 18 Kohathites to carry all Furniture of the Tabernacle. 

Correct list and rendering of Table of Showbread Utensils

Here is the correct rendering of all Table of Shewbread Utensils:


As you can see, I removed "spoons" from the rendering. This is very simply because you obviously do not need spoons to eat bread.

So here is the correct list of Table Utensils:

  1. קערת (korot - plates for the bread). 12 Golden Plates.
  2. כפת (kofot - forks for eating bread) 12 Golden Forks
  3. קשות (keshot - decanters/jugs for grape juice/water to fill the golden cups). At least several. I show four.
  4. מנקית (mankit - cups for libation) At least several Golden Cups for libation. I show 4.
This is the complete and correct list of Table of Showbread Utensils.

Please note that #3 (keshot) was definitely something for libation. Xref Exodus 25:29 vs Ex 37:16 and Numb 4:7. It is possible that the order of these two terms got mixed up. However, if it was indeed something not for libation it either would've been mentioned right after the "dishes/plates" for the bread or Torah would give us a purpose for this object. And we also have the Golden Cups, so it is very logical to assume that there were Decanters/Jugs to pour to these cups from. It is illogical to assume that the Cups were poured from a regular clay or glass Jug, considering that it was happening in the Holy Place.

Who wrote the Torah?: The in-depth look

Most people think that it was Moses who wrote the Torah. This is not true so let's take a look where this misconception comes from and who really wrote the Torah.
CLV Ex 17:14 Then Yahuah said to Moses: Write this as a reminder in a scroll, and put it in the ears of Joshua that I shall wipe out, yea wipe out the remembrance of Amalek from under the heavens. 
CLV Ex 24:4 Now Moses wrote all the words of Yahuah. And he rose early in the morning and built an altar below the mountain and twelve stone monuments for the twelve tribes of Israel. 
CLV Ex 34:27 Yahuah said to Moses: Write for yourself these words, for at the bidding of these words I contract with you a covenant and with Israel. 
CLV Num 33:2 Moses wrote down their exit-places of their journeys at the bidding of Yahuah. And these are their decampments at their exit-places. 
CLV Dt 31:9 Then Moses wrote this law and gave it to the priests, the sons of Levi, the carriers of the coffer of the covenant of Yahuah, and to all the elders of Israel. 
CLV Dt 31:19 And now, write down for yourselves this song and teach it to the sons of Israel. Put it in their mouths so that this song may come to be for Me as a testimony against the sons of Israel. 
CLV Dt 31:22 (Moses wrote this song on that day and taught it to the sons of Israel.) 
CLV Dt 31:24 It came to be as Moses concluded writing all the words of this law on a scroll until they were finished, 
These are the verses that traditionally used to say that Moses wrote the Torah. While it may appear to be so, especially based on Exodus 17:14 and 24:4, this is not the full story because there are many other verses that say a different thing. So while Moses was writing the events of Exodus as he went, the Torah itself was NOT written by Moses. Let's take a look what Torah says:

CLV Ex 24:12 Yahuah said to Moses: Ascend to Me to the mountain and be there, and I shall give to you the stone tablets, the law and the instructions which I wrote to direct them. 
CLV Ex 31:18 He gave to Moses, as He finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of Elohim. 
CLV Ex 32:15 Then Moses turned around and descended from the mountain with the two tablets of the testimony in his hands, tablets written on two sides across them, on this and on that side were they written. 
CLV Ex 32:16 And the tables, they were the handiwork of Elohim; and the writing, it was the writing of Elohim, chiseled on the tablets. 
CLV Ex 32:32 And now, if You should bear their sin, bear it. Yet if not, wipe me, I pray, from Your scroll which You have written. 
CLV Ex 32:33 Yahuah said to Moses: Anyone who has sinned against Me, I shall wipe him from My scroll. 
CLV Ex 34:1 Yahuah said to Moses: Carve for yourself two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on the tablets the words which came to be on the first tablets which you broke. 
CLV Ex 34:28 And he came to be there before Yahuah, forty days and forty nights. Bread he did not eat and water he did not drink. Thus he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the ten words. 
CLV Dt 4:13 He told you His covenant which He instructed you to keep, the ten words. Then He wrote them on two tablets of stone. 
CLV Dt 5:22 These were the words Yahuah spoke to your whole assembly at the mountain, in a loud voice from the midst of the fire, the darkness, the cloud and the murkiness; and He added no more. He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me. 
CLV Dt 9:10 Then Yahuah gave to me the two tablets of stone, written by the finger of Elohim, and on them were all the words just like those that Yahuah had spoken with you at the mountain from the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly. 
CLV Dt 10:2 Then I shall write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets that you broke, and you will place them in the coffer. 
CLV Dt 10:4 Then He wrote on the tablets, like the first writing, the ten words that Yahuah had spoken to you at the mountain from the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly; and Yahuah gave them to me.
So as you can see, these verses are very clear that not only Moses got the 2 Stone Tablets which were written by finger(!) of God Himself, he also got the Written Torah scroll written by God as well.

As you can see, God says several times that He wrote the Torah and wants to give it to Moses.

So while Moses was writing his own scroll of the Torah, God gave him the original Torah scroll that HE had written. This is very important fact that many people do not seem to understand or care about.

Torah had to have been written by God because if we assume that Moses wrote the Torah then it is not divine and it is just a bunch of BS. Only if we assume that God wrote the Torah, only then the Torah makes sense as a divine and holy writing and as the real and the only Word of God.

Since the Torah was known to humans from the very beginning, it was simply necessary for God to give a correct and complete Torah text to humans, which is exactly what He did at Mt. Sinai. Moses's Torah was not exact, which is why God gave Moses a correct and complete Torah scroll to copy from.

This is the only way to explain the Deuteronomy 31:24 which means that Moses simply copied from the scroll of God the remaining chapters which indeed included the events that had not happened yet, including God speaking to Moses and Moses's death.

Moses was the greatest prophet who ever lived, which is why God gave him the entire Torah way in advance at Mt. Sinai so that Moses can teach the entire law, even though it was not yet officially given and spoken to Moses by God.

So it was God Himself who wrote the Torah. Moses only made copies.

P.S. The stone tablets were literally written by the finger of God. This makes perfect sense because God is omnipotent Being and He can certainly engrave the stone by His finger. Would it make more sense if God wrote the Tablets with a chisel or laser engraver?!? No, it had to be God's handiwork. Literally. There is no other way and this is the best possible explanation.

P.P.S. We have to account for all Torah verses at once when we come up with explanations. We can't just use some passages to justify our often incorrect beliefs. It is very important to take all verses into consideration. Especially this is true about the description of the Tabernacle.

P.P.P.S. I checked the Samaritan Pentateuch and it seems to imply that the word "Torah" in Exodus 24:12 refers to the Stone Tablets. This is most certainly an intentional edit on the part of the Samaritans as it does not make sense. Exodus 24:12 does not just say "and the Torah" it also says "and the Command", so even if we assume that the word "Torah" refers to the Stone Tablets, what does "the Command" refers to?!? So obviously Samaritan Torah is incorrect in this regard.

Proper Circumcision

I have finally figured out the correct circumcision method that Torah prescribes. While any type of circumcision is acceptable, Torah actually gives us an example of how it can be done and what is the acceptable minimum.

Let's take a look:
YLT Ex 4:24 . And it cometh to pass in the way, in a lodging place, that Jehovah meeteth him, and seeketh to put him to death; 
YLT Ex 4:25 and Zipporah taketh a flint, and cutteth off the foreskin of her son, and causeth it to touch his feet, and saith,  'Surely a bridegroom of blood art thou to me;'
As you can see from this verse, Zipporah used a knife to circumcise her son. This means that she only did a partial circumcision and did not remove all foreskin but rather snipped the tip of the foreskin. This is because removal of all foreskin requires a surgery and can't be done with a knife. It would also be very painful. This is why Zipporah only cut the tip of the foreskin and touched Moses's feet with it.

Complete removal of the foreskin is simply unnecessary if you do not have any problems. So God gives as an example of what is the acceptable circumcision.

In fact, I have seen how they circumcise young boys in Africa and they do it also just with a knife. The procedure is extremely quick and relatively painless. They simply chop off the tip of the foreskin without even any anestesia or surgery.

God did not want us to suffer so He gave us the right to circumcise just the tip.

But like I said, ANY type of circumcision is acceptable because some people may need a full circumcision.However, the traditional method is to just remove the tip.

Six days thou shalt labor...

I wanted to elaborate a little bit why I consider 7th-day Shabbat (traditional Shabbat) incorrect.

I want to show you that the Shabbat definition itself proves to us that 7th-day Shabbat is wrong. So let's take a look:
CLV Ex 20:9 Six days shall you serve and do all your work, 
CLV Ex 20:10 yet the seventh day is a sabbath to Yahuah your Elohim. You shall not do any work, you, your son or your daughter, your servant or your maidservant, your bull, your donkey or your beast, or your sojourner who is within your gates.
What does this command imply? What does this command really prohibits and permits?

First of all, please notice that this commandment does not imply continuity (taamid). This commandment never says or implies that we are to work six days, then rest one, then work six days again then rest one, etc. It never says or implies that we are to do it continuously. It may imply temporary continuity but definitely not perpetual continuity because Torah would've mentioned it.

Secondly, this commandment never prohibits us from working less than six days or resting more than one day. You are not violating this commandment by doing this. For example, you are unemployed or you want to take an extra day off work.

So the only thing that this commandment clearly implies is that we are not to work more than six days and we are to rest at least one day if we worked for six days in a row.

In 7th-day Shabbat system, weeks are not connected to month and years. Which is why 7th-days Shabbat is clearly wrong.


 

Does Torah allow masturbation?

Does Torah allow one to masturbate? Yes, absolutely! In fact, Torah expects this to happen and gives us the commandments about it.

Let's take a look:
CLV Lv 15:16 A man, when an emission of semen comes forth from him, will bathe all his flesh in water and be unclean until the evening. 
CLV Lv 15:17 Every garment and all leather on which his emission of semen has come, he will rinse in water, and it will be unclean until the evening. 
CLV Lv 15:18 Also a woman with whom a man is lying with an emission of semen, they will both bathe in water and be unclean until the evening.
And here are more specific verses that deal with a specific case of the soldiers:
CLV Dt 23:10 In case there should be a man among you who is not clean because of a happening of the night, then he must go forth outside the camp; he shall not come into the midst of the camp. 
CLV Dt 23:11 When it comes to be just before evening he shall wash in water, and as the sun sets he may come into the midst of the camp.
So as you can see, commandments are very plain and clear. If you masturbate or if you have ejaculated at night, you are to bathe in water, wash your clothes and you are unclean until the evening. If you are a soldier and you are camping at the camp, you also can't come back to the camp until the sun sets.

So as you can see, masturbation is not only allowed but expected. The reason why God allows it is because God knows what it is like to be without a woman or that one can have thoughts and dreams that may make you ejaculate by accident. 

Please note that this is the ejaculation that makes you or your woman unclean. If you do not ejaculate then you are clean even if you had sex. And a woman can't get unclean from sex unless a man has ejaculated near or on/in her.

Also, masturbation is a method for both sexes to release sexual tensions, so it actually plays a very important role in Torah observant society. You are prohibited to have casual sex by the Torah because it is prostitution and sexual perversion, so you are expected to masturbate if you do not have a partner or if your partner is away.

Correct position of the rings/staves on the Ark of the Covenant and Table of Showbread

I have finally figured out where staves of the Ark and the Table should be positioned and the reason is very simple.

Here is the correct rendering of the Table and the staves:

As you can see, the staves on the Table of Showbread are supposed to be located along the long sides. 

This is because the Table was supposed to be placed next and along the Northern wall of the Tent of the Tabernacle so the staves would get in the way when the Table was carried in had they been located along the short sides.

Also, the Table was 1 cubit wide, which is similar to the width of the Altar of Incense which was also 1 cubit. So this means that the Table was carried by two people just like the Altar of Incense because 1 cubit width is equal to human shoulders width.

Same is true about the weight of the Table and Altar of Incense. They are about the same, which confirms that it was carried by only two people.

Same is with the Ark of the Covenant. The staves should be located along the long sides. This is because the Priest is said to stand between the Cherubim and had the staves been along the short sides, they would get in a way of the Priest when he was inside the Holy of Holies on Yom Kippur.

The only difference with the Ark is that its width was 1.5 cubits, which means that it would require four people to carry it because the width is more than human shoulders width. You can see the correct rendering of the Ark on my Tabernacle Images page.

What is Passover Matzot?

Since Passover is coming up soon, I wanted to explain to you what was the proper Passover Matzot.

I really hate current traditional Matzot very simply because I literally choke on it when I eat it more than several days. It is very tasty but it is very hard to eat for a week. In fact, this was the reason why I got suspicious about it. Why would God want to torture me and His people?

After checking the Torah, I have realized that the Torah never even implies that this is what we are to eat, so let's take a look at what Torah really says:
CLV Ex 12:39 They baked the dough which they brought forth from Egypt, unleavened ember cakes, for it was not leavened, for they were driven out of Egypt and they could not dally, and, moreover, they did not make provision for themselves.
As you can see, when Hebrews observed the Passover and left Mizraim, they were on the road so they did not and could not make proper bread. More so, they were required to eat unleavened bread for a week. So the bread they had to make was not only unleavened but it had to be something that they could easily make. So the bread they ate could only be something that can be cooked with campfire since they obviously did not have ovens or any bread making equipment.

The translation of what they ate is very unclear so let's take a look at the actual Hebrew text.

The word in question is עגת (ogt) which is obviously a form of bread since the type of bread is mentioned (unleavened). So all that we need to figure out is what form of bread OGT are. 

Please note that OGT is plural and the proper pronunciation of the form of bread is OG. So they ate OG or what Torah calls MTZUT OGT.

The closest words I found are עגל (calf - Ex 32:4), עגלת (tabernacle wagons - Numb 7:3) and עגיל (earring - Numb 31:50). So if you know Hebrew you would agree that it is actually pretty clear what OG means and it most certainly refers to something soft and round, which can only mean that the form of bread in question was also round, soft and flat. There is no word for this in English so here is the best picture I found. The bread on the picture is leavened but it looks very similar to unleavened one.

As you can see it was round, soft and flat. They most likely put oil in it too to make it soft and it had to be thick enough to remain soft but it also thin enough to be made quickly and without the oven on the road.

Most likely they put stones in a campfire and cooked these breads upon in.

So as you can see, this is what Passover/Feast of Unleavened Matzot really is. You definitely not going to choke on this. In fact, it is much more pleasant to eat than crackers.

Also, we can definitely say that OG couldn't have been cracker type matzot because there is a separate word for this in the Torah (רקיק - rkik - cracker type wafer).

I also need to point out that we are never commanded to eat OG for Passover and Feast of Unleavened. So we are not violating these holy days by eating crackers. But I personally find traditional matzot very unpleasant to eat for a week. And I recommend you to switch to this type of Matzot because this way you will be able to experience and remind yourself about the events of Exodus more fully.

P.S. It seems that they also ate OG in the desert and it was made out of Mann. See Numbers 11:8. Also, Torah does not say that they ate OG for actual Passover Seder before they left Mizraim.

Concentrate on THIS life, concentrate on YOUR life!

Concentrate on THIS life, concentrate on YOUR life!

This is the best advice I can give about life.

I already explained in my previous posts that there is no afterlife. In fact, God tells us in the very beginning of the Torah that we are dust and in the dust we shall return. So the most important thing to remember is that THIS life is ALL you ever going to have. So you should do everything possible to make your life better by being righteous. You should concentrate on THIS life.

And you should also concentrate on YOUR life. You should not get distracted by the lives of others. I know that it may seem that the world is unfair and evil, but this is just an elaborate illusion and you should not succumb to this illusion no matter how tempting it may be.

Remember, punishment for evil is evil or death. I am pretty sure you do not want that. So it is very important to stick to what you know and your own life. In our time this is especially true.

Torah says, also in the very beginning, that we are capable of resisting and dominating over sin and evil, so force yourself to be righteous. I know that this is extremely difficult in our time but I am pretty sure that you know that this is true.

Always remember that God is perfectly just. So justice will surely be served. So do not make matters worse by taking justice into your own hands.

Just walk your own walk and be righteous!



Self-evident transcendent logic

Every time I mention logic people seem to assume I am talking about the logic of Ancient Greece or the modern equivalent of the discipline. So I wanted to elaborate and try to explain what I mean.

First and foremost, my logic is based on the Torah so I am definitely not a fan of Greek philosophers even though they said many correct things.

Secondly, my logic can be described as self-evident and transcendent. For example, 2+2=4 or "thou shalt not murder" is most certainly self-evident and transcendent.

Last but not least, the reason why I use self-evident and transcendent logic is that it can't be denied unless you are crazy or dishonest.

So when you read my logical statements, they should also be self-evident and transcendent to you because I use self-evident and transcendent logical axioms to come to my conclusions.

Do not get me wrong, I do make mistakes. I am not saying I am always saying the absolute truth. But in many of my posts, this is exactly the case.

In fact, I often say such banal things that I wonder why most people do not get it and/or agree with me. My best guess is that many people can't admit when they are wrong, which is totally understandable but really sad.

What kind of bread is Showbread?

So what is the Showbread? What kind of bread is Showbread?

Let's take a look:
CLV Lv 24:5 You will take flour and bake of it twelve perforated cakes. Two tenths of an ephah shall there be for one perforated cake. 
CLV Lv 24:6 And you will place them in two arrays, six to the array, on the pure table before Yahweh. 
CLV Lv 24:7 You will put along each array clear frankincense, and it will be used instead of the bread as a memorial portion, a fire offering to Yahweh. 
CLV Lv 24:8 Sabbath day by sabbath day shall he arrange it before Yahweh regularly on behalf of the sons of Israel, an eonian covenant. 
CLV Lv 24:9 It will be for Aaron and for his sons, and they will eat it in a holy place, for it is a holy of holies for him from the fire offerings of Yahweh. It is an eonian statute.
Please also see additional verses: Exodus 29:2, 29:23, Lev 2:4, 7:12-13, 8:26, Numb 6:15, 6:19, 15:20.

So as you can see from all these verses, the Showbread is called Halah, which literally means sick or afflicted. Perhaps, this is because it is good to eat this bread when you are sick or afflicted. I also think that maybe Halah gets its name from its color (yellow) due to the addition of the eggs. Yellow is traditionally associated with sick or afflicted.

Secondly, Showbread was made with 2 Omers of flour (2/10 of Ephah) and included at least the oil and the eggs. Honey was probably added too. And it was baked in the oven.

Halah is a form of bread and it was essentially a flat cake, which means that it had a thickness of less than half of a traditional loaf. Here is the absolutely beautiful picture:


As you can see, this bread is soft and thin enough to be eaten with the forks which were commanded as the part of the Table of Showbread utensils.

The most interesting question is if the Showbread supposed to be leavened or unleavened because if you look at Leviticus 24:5 there is no indication which type of bread the Showbread supposed to be. In fact, from the cited verses we know that Halah can be leavened and unleavened. So which type was used for Showbread?

The answer is actually very simple.

First of all, we know for a fact that the bread was on the table for a whole week and was replaced with the new one each Shabbat. This means that the bread had to be unleavened because a leavened bread would not last a week on the table. It would get dry and would be inedible.

Secondly, the leavened bread would require some kind of covering to preserve it for a week. But we are never commanded such a thing and even if we assume that the bread was covered with individual lids, there is simply not enough space on the table to accommodate such arrangement.

Last but not least, we know for a fact that we are prohibited to eat leavened bread during Passover/Feast of the Unleavened and the Priests are no exception. Torah never says they were exempt. So this can only mean that the bread had to be unleavened.

So as you can clearly see that the Showbread is called by the Torah Unleavened Halah. The fact that Torah does not say "unleavened" is clearly because this word fell out of the description. I checked Kennicott and there were no manuscripts which show the type of bread either way, which means that this edit occurred in the 1st Temple period most likely.

We can't assume that they have interchanged the bread because Torah never says that and because of the issue of the preservation of the leavened bread for a week.

Leviticus 24:9 says that this bread is "from fire offerings", which also implies that the bread was unleavened because most offerings require unleavened Halah. Especially fire offerings.

Please note that we are very clearly commanded to put frankincense ON THE ROWS and NOT ON THE BREAD! Neither we are commanded any specific shape features for the bread. This means that there were no depressions in the bread to put frankincense in as tradition usually shows. And this means that frankincense was simply sprinkled all over the rows and as is. I think it was only on the Table and the dishes. Priests had to eat this bread to I do not think putting frankincence on the bread directly is a good idea. How would you eat it?

I hope now it is clear what Showbread is.

P.S. Here is an updated rendering of my Table of Showbread model:

Simple Unleavened Bread recipie

Passover is coming up soon so I wanted to give you a simple and correct unleavened recipie to try.

This recipie is actually for  things like Showbread or some of the slaughters and this bread is called by the Torah unleavened halah.

Halah literally means sick, ill or worn perhaps because this is what sick people may eat. See Genesis 48:1, Ex 15:26, 23:25 etc.

The key to making a successful loaf of unleavened bread is thickness of the loaf and inclusion of at least the eggs and oil. I think it is also possible to add honey to the bread, especially if you think that the bread is too hard for your taste.

In order to make the bread soft it needs to be as thin as possible so your loaf should be half-size of the regular loaf or less.

I found this recipie here so please visit the link to see the pictures.

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter or cooking oil
3 large eggs
1/2-cup water or milk
1 teaspoon salt

  1. Combine the dry ingredients (flour and salt) in a mixing bowl and mix them together.
  2. Beat together the eggs and oil, then add this mixture to the dry ingredient mixture.
  3. Add the milk, then beat the mixture for 2 to 3 minutes until it is relatively smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into three greased, 8-inch, square baking pans.
  5. Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.

Tips:

To avoid sticking, use a cooking spray that contains flour or sprinkle flour in the pans after they have been sprayed. Do not use cooking spray that does not contain flour by itself, as this will cause the loaves to stick.

Check the bread frequently as it is baking. Over-baked unleavened bread becomes extremely hard and crumbly.

To add some different flavors to your unleavened bread, add 1/4 cup honey or a pound of cheddar, Colby or Pepper Jack cheese to the batter.

Exodus 21:7-11: Undeniable reason why we need Torah-based slavery

God permits and gives us the commandment that allows one to sell one's child into slavery because God fully understands what is it like to have a house full of crying hungry children when you are broke as fuck.

People kill self and their whole family because they do not have the money even for the food for the children!

Is it not better to sell 1 daughter into righteous, just and temporary slavery, so that the other 10 children may live and not die from hunger or homicide?

Is this not ultimate mercy and humility? Is God not just?

According to the Torah, you could not sell your kind into slavery to a foreigner. You could only sell to your own kind. God perfectly understands that normal parents would never sell their daughter into permanent, unrighteous and unjust slavery. They would rather kill her. This is why God permitted to sell only to your own kind.

And God strictly prohibited even to oppress the slaves, even from the son of the foreigner, because we ourselves were slaves in the land of Mitzraim and God has delivered us from there.

This is the ultimate and undeniable reason why we need Torah-based slavery. Without it, many people are dying and will continue to die.

For many very needy people, only two logical options exist: death or slavery. And since modern society denies them proper slavery, the only other option that they have is death. Even if they choose to do nothing, it is only a matter of time when they simply forced to choose.

Torah-based slavery is the ultimate social justice system for the needy as my explanation clearly shows.

P.S. The reason why this commandment does not mention "a son" is that this commandment deals only with the issue of marriage of the slave women. We are allowed to sell our sons into slavery too and other commands in the Torah explain how it is done.

When does the Counting of Omer start?

Here is the interesting question... When does the Counting of Omer start?

Let's take a look:
CLV Dt 16:9 You shall count off seven weeks for yourself. From the start of the scythe in the raised grain shall you start to count off seven weeks.
This is the most important verse that tells us when to start counting the Omer.

First of all, notice that it talks only about counting 7 weeks. It does not say to count 50 days. I will explain why further in the post.

Secondly, we see the explicit command to start counting weeks of Omer from the start of the harvest. This means that the date when we start counting can change based on the harvest.

As I have explained on this blog, the High Priest would determine when we start the count.

And here is the  additional information that is also important: 
YLT Lv 23:9 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
YLT Lv 23:10 'Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When ye come in unto the land which I am giving to you, and have reaped its harvest, and have brought in the sheaf, the beginning of your harvest unto the priest, 
YLT Lv 23:11 then he hath waved the sheaf before Jehovah for your acceptance; on the morrow of the sabbath doth the priest wave it. 
YLT Lv 23:15 'And ye have numbered to you from the morrow of the sabbath, from the day of your bringing in the sheaf of the wave-offering: they are seven perfect sabbaths;
As you can see, Torah clearly says when Counting of Omer is to start. We start counting 7 weeks from the morrow of the Shabbat but we count 50 days from the actual Shabbat.

As I have said before, the Shabbat of the 1st of Omer would be determined by the High Priest based on the readiness of the harvest in the entire Land of Canaan. This is because 50th of Omer is a Holy Meeting, which means that all had to harvest and count at the same time.

The last question that remains is what is the earliest Shabbat at which the Counting of Omer can start?!? I finally managed to find the answer to this question!

The EARLIEST Shabbat that the Counting of Omer can start is the Passover/1st of Unleavened Shabbat or Full-Moon Shabbat of the 1st Hebrew Month.

This is because in some years (like 2018) we can have harvest falling on Passover/1st of Unleavened Shabbat due to the late Spring and intercalation (13th month).

At first, I did not think it was possible because I thought that 1st of Omer is a Holy Meeting. I thought that 1st of Omer Holy Meeting was edited out of the Torah by the rabbis to fit their calendar, just like they did with the New Moon.

If you will look at Leviticus 23 and Numbers 28-29, you will see that 1st of Omer IS NOT a Holy Meeting. But the reason for this is not the editing. The reason for this is that 1st of Omer can fall on Passover/1st of Unleavened Shabbat, which is why 1st of Omer is NOT a Holy Meeting to prevent us from having 2 Holy Meetings at once (1st of Unleavened and 1st of Omer).

This is why 1st of Omer is NOT a Holy Meeting so that we can start counting as early as the 1st of Unleavened Shabbat.

Please note that we start counting 50 days from the 1st of Unleavened Shabbat but we start counting 7 weeks from the MORROW of the 1st of Unleavened Shabbat as Leviticus 23:15 states. This is because we can't harvest on Shabbat, so the count of harvest weeks starts the day after when there are no work prohibitions.

And we have an actual example of starting the count this early.

While it is not the Torah,  Joshua 5:10-12 states, that they ate the "old corn" of the land ON THE MORROW AFTER PASSOVER, which makes it the 16th.

So this passage in Joshua completely fits my explanation and it makes perfect sense.

They slaughtered Passover between the evenings on the 14th. They have observed actual Passover and ate their own Unleavened bread on the 15th, which was definitely the Shabbat. And they have started eating the old harvest of the land on the 16th (from the morrow of the Passover or from the morrow of the 15th) which also proves that 15th was the Shabbat as we are explicitly commanded to start counting FROM THE MORROW of the Shabbat.

So as you can see, now everything makes perfect sense.

So the earliest time the Counting of Omer can start is the Passover/1st of Unleavened Shabbat.

Once again, please note that we start counting 50 days from the Shabbat but we start counting 7 weeks from the morrow of the Shabbat.

Hope this information helps.

ABIB 2018: They are lying to you again!!!

If you have seen my Correct Torah Calendar (here is the actual calendar), you would know that the 1st month of this coming year begins a month later than traditional one!

The reason for this is very simple: The Month of Abib can't be the month of Spring Equinox because Torah very clearly says that THE WHOLE MONTH must be Abib!!!

Usually, this is not a problem because on average Spring Equinox falls way before the New Moon(as far as 15 days), which does not create any problem with the timing of the Month of Abib.

However, this is not the case this year (2018) when we have Spring Equinox falling just a few days AFTER the New Moon. And even though it is normal due to differences in Solar and Lunar cycles, this seems to have created a confusion as to when the 1st Month of the Year will start.

The answer to this question is very simple:

As I have stated numerous times on my blog, the Calendar and all Moedim are to be determined by the Sun and the Moon alone !!! See Genesis 1:14. And we must use BOTH the Sun and the Moon to determine Month of Abib. This is why we can't use Spring Equinox (Sun) alone and neither we can use the Moon alone. WE MUST USE BOTH. THESE ARE THE RULES !!!

This means that in case of this year where we have Spring Equinox falling a few days AFTER the New Moon, we must ADD 13th Month (intercalate) because Abib can't happen during a Month of Equinox. It ALWAYS happens in a Month FOLLOWING Spring Equinox.

Here is more or less sane report by one of many groups that look for Barley in Israel. I saved it in PDF so that I may preserve these lies for the whole world to see.


First of all, notice the pictures! Even though they have managed to find a patch of mature Barley, on the background you can see EVERYTHING IS STILL GREEN !!!

Secondly, look at the location of the pictures! It was taken in the Negev, which is the utmost southern part of Israel. This means that the rest of Barley in the rest of Israel is STILL GREEN!!! Only in southern parts, where it is much warmer, you can find mature Barley this early.

And finally, for my coup de grace, look at the report itself:
The barley in the Judean Hills and Jordan Valley was quite immature this year, while the barley in the Northern Negev was more mature. The most developed location we looked at in the Northern Negev had a good amount of patches of aviv barley. We also found some individual stalks at other fields. It is the unanimous conclusion of the participants, that we found enough aviv barley to begin the year with the upcoming new moon sighting.
So even though, by their own observations, the Barley was far from being mature and only individual stalks were found outside of southern regions, they still concluded that it is the Month of Abib!!! Not even Barley Abib, the Month of Abib !!!

You can see more of the same lies here: http://renewedmoon.com/

So as you can see, these people are blatantly lying to you and misleading you!!! They are even ignoring their own observations and photographic evidence to force-fit their incorrect beliefs and traditions with the Torah.

Here is what the Torah says:
CLV Ex 13:4 Today you are going forth in the month of Aviv(ripening)
CLV Ex 23:15 you shall observe the celebration of unleavened cakes; seven days shall you eat unleavened cakes, just as I instructed you, at the appointed time in the month Aviv(ripening), for in it you went forth from Egypt, and none shall appear before Me empty-handed: 
CLV Ex 34:18 The celebration of unleavened cakes shall you observe seven days. You shall eat unleavened cakes just as I have instructed you for the appointed time in the month of Aviv(ripening), for in the month of Aviv(ripening) you came forth from Egypt. 
CLV Dt 16:1 You are to observe the month of Aviv(ripening) and prepare a passover to Yahuah your Elohim, for in the month of Aviv(ripening) Yahuah your Elohim brought you forth from Egypt by night.
So as you can see, Torah very clearly states that it is the MONTH OF ABIB !!! NOT BARLEY ABIB!!!

The WHOLE MONTH MUST BE ABIB to be considered the 1st Month of the Hebrew Year!!!

This means that the MONTH OF ABIB can only be the FIRST LUNAR MONTH AFTER SPRING EQUINOX!!! Very simple!!!

The incorrect tradition of looking for Abib Barley comes from incorrect interpretations of the verses of Exodus. Let's take a look:
CLV Ex 9:31 (And the flax and the barley were smitten, for the barley was ripened (abib), and the flax was in pod; 
CLV Ex 9:32 yet the wheat and the spelt were not smitten, for they were in blade.)
So as you can see, they misinterpret these two verses to say that Abib refers to Barley and not to a Month !!!

However, this is very wrong and here is why:

First of all, these verses refer to Mizraim, not Canaan.

Secondly, the Hebrews did not leave Mizraim after these verses. Considerable time has passed before they left!

So while it is true that at the time of the Hail plague the Barley was Abib, it was in Mizraim and there were several more plagues to come. This means that Hebrews left Mizraim later when EVERYTHING WAS ABIB (not just Barley).

And since Mizraim is south of Canaan, Abib in Canaan should be later than that of Mizraim.

Here is the auxiliary verse to support this point: 
CLV Lv 2:14 Yet if you bring near an approach present of firstfruits to Yahuah, you shall bring near ripened(abib) ears toasted by fire, groats of the crop, as the approach present of your firstfruits.
Clearly, Abib means fully ripened because the offering of first-fruits to Yahuah had to be edible.

And as you can see, it NEVER MENTIONS BARLEY !!! This means that Abib refers to ALL spring crops !!! Not just Barley!!!

This is why Torah says "MONTH OF ABIB"!!! Because ALL spring crops were ripe in this month and close to harvest !!!

Torah NEVER SAYS to look for Barley to determine the 1st Month!!! On the contrary, Torah explicitly tells us to use the Sun AND the Moon TOGETHER to determine ALL Moedim !!!

The reason why Torah tells us to use the Sun and the Moon together to determine all Moedim is that everything on Earth depends on the Sun and the Moon. In fact, without Sun and Moon (or even without the Moon alone) there would not be any life on our planet at all. This is why Torah tells us to use very precise and obvious signs to determine the Moedim !!!

Ripened Barley can be used as a SECONDARY SIGN ONLY and it is NEVER COMMANDED !!!

Can a regular Priest marry a widow?

Can a regular Priest (not the High Priest) marry a widow?

Orthodox Judaism allows the regular Priests marry a widow. But is this justified by the Torah?

Let's take a look...

Here is what Torah says about Regular Priests.
CLV Lv 21:7 A prostituting woman or a violated one, they shall not take, and a woman driven out from her husband they shall not take, for he is holy to his Elohim.
As you can see, the word "widow" is absent from this verse. This is why Orthodox Judaism interpreted this verse as a permission for regular Priests marry a widow.

Let's look further at the High Priest permissions:
CLV Lv 21:13 He shall take a wife in her virginity.

CLV Lv 21:14 A widow or one driven out or violated or prostituting, these he shall not take, but rather a virgin from his kinsmen shall he take for a wife,
First of all, please compare bold words in both passages. As you can see, the only difference in these passages is the word "widow".

At first, I thought that this passage was edited during the 1st Temple period, especially because Kennicott and DSS did not have any variant readings.

However, I realized that there is more going on than I thought at first.

Here is a key verse that explains why Regular Priests CAN marry a widow and why the word
"widow" is absent from the verse:
CLV Dt 25:5 In case brothers dwell together, and one of them dies, and he has no son, the wife of the dead one shall not come to the outside, to an alien man. Her brother-in-law shall come to her, and he will take her to himself as his wife and perform the levirate for her. 
CLV Dt 25:6 Then it will come to be: the firstborn whom she bears shall carry on the name of his father's dead brother so that his name may not be wiped out from Israel. 
CLV Dt 25:7 But should the man not be inclined to take his sister-in-law, then his sister-in-law will go up to the elders at the gate and say: My brother-in-law refuses to raise up a name for his brother in Israel; he is not willing to perform the levirate for me. 
CLV Dt 25:8 Then the elders of his city will call to him and speak to him. But if he persists and says: I am not inclined to take her, 
CLV Dt 25:9 then his sister-in-law will come close to him before the eyes of the elders, pull his sandal off his foot, spit in his face and answer and say: Thus shall be done to the man who will not build up his brother's house. 
CLV Dt 25:10 And his name will be called in Israel, House of the Pulled-off Sandal.
So it appears that Regular Priests CAN marry a widow, primarily because of the commandment to preserve died brother's name and seed in Israel. Priests can marry widows due to the levirate issue. Apparently, only the High Priest was exempt from this commandment who was explicitly commanded to marry a virgin because he is Holy to Yahuah.

And here are the auxiliary verses that support this point:
CLV Lv 21:1 Yahuah said to Moses: Speak to the priests, the sons of Aaron, and say to them: No one shall defile himself for a deceased soul among his kinsmen, 
CLV Lv 21:2 save for his kin next to him, that is, for his mother, for his father, for his son, for his daughter, for his brother 
CLV Lv 21:3 or for his virgin sister, next to him since she has not come to have a husband; for her he may defile himself.
As you can see, these verses allow a Regular Priest to defile himself for his brother, meaning that not only a Regular Priest can touch a dead brother but also marry his wife if they did not have children.
CLV Ex 22:22 Any widow or orphan you shall not humiliate. 
CLV Lv 22:13 Yet in case the daughter of the priest becomes a widow or is driven out and she has no seed and so she returns to the house of her father as in her youth, of her father's bread she may eat, yet no alien at all may eat of it. 
CLV Dt 10:18 the One executing judgment of orphan and widow, the One loving the sojourner, so as to give him bread and garment. 
CLV Dt 14:29 that the Levite may come (for he has no portion or allotment with you), and the sojourner, the orphan and the widow who are within your gates, and they may eat and be satisfied, so that Yahuah your Elohim may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do. 
CLV Dt 16:11 You will rejoice before Yahuah your Elohim, you, your son and your daughter, your servant and your maidservant, the Levite who is within your gates, the sojourner, the orphan and the widow who are among you, in the place where Yahuah your Elohim shall choose to tabernacle His name. 
CLV Dt 16:14 You will rejoice in your celebration, you, your son and your daughter, your servant and your maidservant, the Levite, the sojourner, the orphan and the widow who are within your gates.
As you can see, widows have a special status and they are not considered profaned sexually in the eyes of God. This is why Regular Priests COULD marry widows.

However, I need to point out that just because Regular Priests could marry widows, does not mean that this is ideal practice. Marrying a widow was allowed to help in situations when there is no other choice. It certainly does not imply that most Priests should be married to widows. On the contrary, most Regular Priests should marry virgins from their own people just like High Priest. So what is going on in traditional Judaism is most certainly wrong.

Does Torah command the rapist to marry his victim?

No! ABSOLUTELY NOT !!! I do not know why this is even an issue for some people? 

This rumor is based on slight inconsistency in the verses of the text in Deuteronomy. So while I understand that some people could misread the text, still it is pretty crazy to think that some people would believe that God would allow this.

Let's take a look at what text of the Torah really says:
CLV Ex 22:16 In case a man entices a virgin who is not betrothed and lies with her he shall pay, yea pay her bride-price as a wife for himself. 
CLV Ex 22:17 If her father refuses, yea refuses to give her to him, he shall weigh out silver according to the bride-price for virgins. 
CLV Dt 22:28 In case a man should find a maiden, a virgin who is not betrothed, and he grasps her and lies with her, and they are found, 
CLV Dt 22:29 then the man who is lying with her must give to the maiden's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall become his wife. Inasmuch as he humiliated her he shall not be able to dismiss her all his days.
So as you can see, in reality, the Torah states that it is up to the father of the victim to decide if she will be married off to the rapist. The woman's opinion also counts, which means that a woman must also agree with this. 

So as you can see, the rapist only commanded marry his victim if she and her father would agree to it. And as you can see from Deut 22:29, a rapist can't divorce his victim all his life.

All in all, I think Torah commands very wise and righteous things. Torah would never force a woman to marry her rapist if she does not want that!!!

P.S. I need to clarify that these verses speak about "a rape of passion" which is similar to the story of Dina in Genesis (see Genesis 34). This means that woman was not hurt during the process and intent of rape was not just sex.

So if we are talking about a forcible rape for the sake of sex which hurt the woman, then other punishments are applicable for a rapist, such as an injury for an injury and/or public lashing.

And in the worst case scenario, if a woman died because of rape, then this is not really rape but murder and blood for blood (capital) punishment apply.

List of the Prophetic Signs

Here is the list of all legitimate Prophetic Signs that Torah provides:
  1. Sun and Moon (Genesis 1:14)
  2. Rainbow (Genesis 9:12-17)
  3. Circumcision (Genesis 17:11)
  4. Staff into Snake (Exodus 4:1-5)
  5. Leprous Hand (Exodus 4:6-7)
  6. Water into Blood (Exodus 4:9, Exodus 7:19)
  7. Frogs rising from waterways (Exodus 8:5)
  8. Lice/ Mosquitoes (Exodus 8:16)
  9. Spiders/Roaches (Exodus 8:24)
  10. Death of Livestock (Exodus 9:6)
  11. Unhealable boils on the skin (Exodus 9:10)
  12. Hail and Fire (Exodus 9:23)
  13. Locusts (Exodus 10:13)
  14. Selective Darkness (Exodus 10:22)
  15. Death of the Firstborn (Exodus 12:29)
  16. Passover Blood on the Lintels and Jambs (Exodus 12:13)
  17. Observance of the Shabbat (Exodus 31:13, 17)
  18. Aaron's Rod budding with Almonds (Numbers 17:10)
  19. Wear proper Tassels (Numbers 15:38-40)
  20. Wear of 3 Piece Tefillin (Deuteronomy 6:8, 11:18)
  21. Prophet must preach only One God and Written Torah only (Deuteronomy 13:1-3)
As you can see, there are over 20 legitimate Torah signs that Prophet can show in order to prove that he is a real prophet. There is plenty to choose from. All of these signs are natural and prove that a prophet can control nature and that he is in sync with it (with God).

Listed in bold are the MANDATORY signs. If the prophet does not show these mandatory signs, he is definitely a false prophet according to the Torah.

Please note that if a prophet shows some other sign that is not on the list, he can be a real prophet, just not Torah prophet (like Balaam), so you should not listen or be afraid of such prophet, even if he is real.

The price of incorrect Torah interpretation

I wanted to direct your attention to one article that shows very clearly and explicitly the price we pay for incorrect Torah interpretation.

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/22/nyregion/7-children-die-in-brooklyn-fire.html
"A hot plate warmed food in the darkened kitchen in Brooklyn, allowing an Orthodox Jewish mother to feed her family while observing the Sabbath prohibition on lighting a flame. Upstairs, she and eight children slept. 
That small convenience led to the city’s deadliest fire in eight years, after flames that began in the kitchen ripped through the home, trapping seven children ages 5 to 16 in their bedrooms, as their mother and a 15-year-old sister, cloaked in thick smoke, jumped out of second-floor windows. They were the only two survivors. 
The authorities attributed the fire to an unknown malfunction in the electric hot plate, a device often used by observant Jewish families to keep food warm from sundown on Friday, the start of the Sabbath, until its end on Saturday night. Mayor Bill de Blasio arrived in the early afternoon on Saturday and walked inside the shell of the house with firefighters. “You can literally see what was a home for a large, strong family and now it’s wiped out, every room empty, burned and charred,” he said, adding: “This is a tragedy that has very few examples to look at, it’s so painful, it’s so difficult.” 
On Saturday, investigators found a smoke detector in the basement of the home at 3371 Bedford Avenue, near Avenue L, but had not found any on the first floor, where the fire started, or the second, where the family slept. They were still searching the debris.
“We believe there were none,” Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro said. “That’s always a tragedy in itself.” "
This was not the first family to pay with their blood and lives for incorrect Torah interpretation and, unfortunately, they won't be last until something changes.

Most people criticize my interpretation of Exodus 35:3 because they are not smart and educated enough to think about consequences like this family had to deal with. They do not understand and they do not care. This is why religion and tradition are evil and has to be dismantled in favor of pure Torah-centric lifestyle.

Only a few people understood and thanked me for my Exodus 35:3 interpretation, which is very disheartening to me. I hope that this changes in the future and more people would see that Torah must be interpreted scientifically, rationally and logically. And we must always think about consequences that our interpretations may entail.

Torah Laws for Women

I've decided to create a page that lists all Torah Laws for women. Please check it out:


These laws are a direct responsibility of every woman and every woman should definitely follow these laws.

Women are the givers of life so they most certainly must keep themselves holy and clean.

Bits of wisdom

Do not expect others to like you, respect you and understand you because many people do not like, respect and understand themselves. How much so they can like, respect and understand you?!?

Same can be said about today's women...

Do not expect women to love you, understand you and respect you because many women today do not love, understand and respect themselves. How much more so they can love, understand and respect you?!?

God exists because we exist!

Here is a simple proof that One God exists...

One God exists because we exist!

Creation can't exist without the existence of the Creator.

Since we know for a fact that we are not the Creator, it means that we are the Creation, and since we exist, Creator must also exist.

Everything is interconnected!

Everything is interconnected!

Every single thing you see, from stones to people is interconnected and important part of nature and God!

All of us are parts of God and nature and we all interconnected together into ONE WHOLE !!!

We live on a planet which is influenced by larger objects in the Universe such as the Sun and the Moon. This is why we are commanded in Genesis 1:14 to use Sun and Moon to determine our cycle, our holy days.

Everything on the Earth is influenced by the Sun and Moon so we must take them into account.




However, the story does not end here.

Our Sun and Moon are influenced by other bodies in our galaxy such as the Black Hole which is at the center of our galaxy. We are actually flying through space at an incredible speed.




As you can see, we are just one of many millions Solar Systems that our galaxy consist of. We are one of the stars seen in this picture:


So in a way, entire Universe is a giant gearbox, where everything is connected to everything, where everything is influenced by everything, and where everything rotates around everything.


So it is important to understand that God, Torah, and the Universe is ONE WHOLE. This is why everything in the Torah should be connected to nature and the real world.
