Quote from the link. Are you serious that you found NOTHING in the entire article? Please note we're not talking about what the Bible says. You are free to whatever opinion you like. We're talking about Rabbinical belief during certain periods of Jewish history. If you disagree, remember that you aren't disagreeing with me or Jor-el, but you are disagreeing with a Professor of Talmudic Culture at the University of California, quoted in the Jewish Virtual Library. Is the Jewish Virtual Library untrustworthy? Is a university professor of Talmudic studies untrustworthy?
To accept the opinion of another just because he is a Rabbi or Professor in a university is a fallacious appeal to authority.
