    Dear Interfaith Friends, There comes a time in the life of every interfaith poster when change is at hand, and that time, for me, is now. I can’t say it hasn’t been interesting. It hasn’t always been fun. The debates about Theosophy were sometimes contentious. But I learned a lot from those...

    Pirke Avot (Ethics of the Fathers)

    And I found some commentary, on-line, but it is pretty conservative (give me that good liberal viewpoint :)): Maharal Archives - I will return to this commentary shortly.

    Pirke Avot (Ethics of the Fathers)

    I have become more interested in learning about ethics and morality and thought it might be fun to post some quotes from Pirke Avot. It turns out that this section of the Talmud, which deals with ethical and moral principles, contains no halacha (Jewish religious law). Unfortunately, I...

    The Green Moon of Sterrett-5

    Hi Penelope, I personally prefer your stories that have some connection with history. This one, if I understood it, was pure sci fi. Even though your history based stories are pretty far fetched, at least they have some connection with reality. I also think the plot was a bit weak but the...

    The Devil Card

    Brian, I will be glad to discuss the role of the devil in Judaism, both in Torah and other Jewish texts. I think it served as a basis for later Western thought about good and evil. But first, I would like to hear from Bruce about his views and the Theosophical views of the devil. I am...

    Hi again Bruce, why does it seem, where Theosophists show up, the devil isn't far behind :eek: ? Are you gentlefolks into devil worship as well ? Just curious. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!

    The WWII question

    I like the way you put that Wil. Amica, peace to you as well ! But, I do not understand your point. You seem reasonable. Why are you asking an insensitive question ? Can you imagine if the same proportion of Muslims were killed as Jews in WWII. Probably that would be over 100- 250...

    I Ching

    :D.....Hi there, DrumR I bought the I Ching (Power Press, 2005) without knowing much about it. When I brought it home, I was surprised to find that it is actually a game of chance. Since I consider myself a rationalist, I was at first a bit disappointed with my new purchase. But having made...

    I Ching

    The wiki entry on I Ching says it is important for both its philosophy as well as being an oracle. Here is the section on philosophy: This section seems to indicate as a philiosophy it is most relevent to metaphysics, ethics and cosmogony, does everyone agree those are its most important...

    Excellent point, CZ, but it would have carried more weight if it was coming from an Chimpanzee avatar rather than a Men's Washroom sign (:D) !!

    Jewish Free School Racist?

    I had forgotten that in the UK the government supports the "faith based" schools. That does put a different perspective on the situation for me. I makes me realize how insightful our founders were when the instituted Separation of Church and State. Here is a great example. Because the...
