My father is a theoretical astrophysicist, and boy would he have a field day with you...

No really a comment, but...
Yay! My submission was accepted!
Sorry about that. First one. :)

My Dog knows more about Judaism, astrophysics and mysticism than you and she died 25 years ago.
At least she'd know where you pulled that from --- and what you had for breakfast.

I think your assertion *does* come from an \"oral tradition\" because it really sucks.
Before you educate others you need to educate yourself. Read a real science book. Go to a community college and take a couple of classes. Jeez!

I know how you feel Talisman! Your first time is always special. :-)
Julian, not to insult your dog, but I'm afraid that inanimate objects know more about astrophyics than our dear JohnR7. My lampshade has zero knowledge, but JohnR7 has a great deal of negative knowledge. That puts my lampshade ahead as far as I'm concerned.

Well, this was on Wikipedia about the Big Bang:
# Some students of Kabbalah, deism and other non-anthropomorphic faiths concord with the Big Bang theory, for example connecting it with the theory of \"divine retraction\" (tzimtzum) as explained by the Jewish scholar Moses Maimonides.
However, I don't think that the scientific theory started as Kabbalistic teaching...once the theory was established (around 1927), it's more likely that people found that Kabbalah fit science in some way here.

Moses - the proposed author of Genesis, which was inspired by God - also proposed the Big Bang? Interesting...

Am I the only one that finds it hilarious that he used \"big bang\" and \"oral\" in the same sentence? Sorry, but I can't see much else worth commenting on in the post.

Too bad the \"most edjumacated creationist\" award has already been given out :(

\"Blurb, you're going to hell\"
In a bucket, no less.

Funny, you don't see the Kabbalah quoted in any of the scientific literatrue .

They were the original 'Flat Universers' right?

There WAS some medieval rabbi (Isaac ben Acre?) who decided that the Universe was 15 billion years old, but ... no. I believe he also said that the Tower of Babel was several billion miles high.

You phail at history.

a mind far far away
LOL, instead of rejecting a scientific theory because it doesn't agree with his beliefs, he throws a curve and says that the scientific theory was actually at first a religious belief. I'm aware that it was a christian who came up with the idea of the Big Bang. But as far as it having anything to do with Kabbalah, that's a new one to me. And BTW, that rabbi you're probably thinking of was Nakhmanides (the Ramban), or his teacher, Isaac the Blind.
