Let's Clear Up One Matter...

Terrorists are not animals. Since animals behave better than terrorists, animals like Reilly would find the charge that terrorists are animals to be insulting to animals and all loving owners of animals.

Another Recipe: The Waste-System Drink

~1 cup of organic cranberry juice
~1 cup of water
~2 tbsp (1/8 cups) of elderberry juice
~4 tbsp (1/4 cups) of milk of magnesia

I put in the milk, the elderberry juice, the water, and the cranberry juice in that order; but the order is up to you. Nonetheless, you have to mix them together like I did (whether you stir, shake, or blend it).

By the way, it tastes like prune juice and works well for people like me with IBS. As for elderberry juice, I hear that that's supposed to support immune-system health. Meanwhile, cranberry juice helps excretory functions. That is all. You're welcome.

More Than Blogging, Etc.: Learning To Cook

Instead-of-Quinoa-and-Soup (IQS) Pasta (I came up with this when I realized that we had no quinoa—or at least any that I could access at the time—,the chicken broth would not drain from the pasta—and I thus could not make chicken-broth-and-celery-soup; and I used measures based on the containers and packaging for each of the products—e.g., 1/2 cup of shredded cheese makes for one serving of cheese
  1. 1 bag of gluten-free, organic pasta
  2. 1 container of organic chicken broth
  3. 2 cups of organic shredded Parmesan cheese
  4.  ~1 cup of organic sauce
  5. Organic olive oil
  6. 3-4 sticks of organic celery, chopped


  1. Cook the pasta in the chicken broth instead of water, as instructed to do so on the bag.
  2. Put cheese and olive oil into bowl.
  3. Put in pasta (which does not need to be drained) and sauce in bowl.
  4. Put celery pieces in.
  5. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Enjoy!
Makes 3-4 servings (i.e., 1-2 servings per person. e.g., I had two servings; Mom may just want one).

Noah's Haplogroup And More Proof That Ashkenazi Jews Are Not Khazars

"“These men and the Iceman had the same ancestors.”" So, 5773-5300 = 473 AM. The Flood happened in 2150 BCE (1610 years after creation, or 1610 AM). So, the man lived prior to the Flood. Noah had G-L91, then. The other haplogroups didn't come around until Babel.

As far as Ashkenazim:


As far as the "mosaic" aspect:

"Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for the father of a multitude of nations have I made thee6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee."

Also:

"[O]f them also will I take for the priests and for the Levites, saith the LORD."

By the way, they clearly admitted to limitations in the study. e.g.:

"In some cases, we could not recognize the ethno-ancestral characteristic of a specific haplotype; further comprehensive testing would accomplish this task. The detection of additional SNPs, testing for extended STR markers, and full mtDNA testing would help us to get a better understanding of the subjects of our investigation. Analysis of the autosomal DNA is another technique that would provide valuable inputs on this topic. Therefore, our study should be viewed as only a starting point for the analysis of this people."

Also:

"We sampled 23 East European Karaite men and 5 East European Karaite women: a total of 28 individuals with deep roots in the East European Karaite communities. We also sampled one Karaite man whose family had immigrated and integrated into the Crimean Karaite community but was not originally from Europe. Except for this man's paternal line, only East European Karaite lineages were tested. Some of our participants were children of mixed marriages between a Karaite and a non-Karaite. The women could only be tested on their maternal lines since the Y chromosome is not transmitted from fathers to their daughters."

Since "Karaite Jews mainly use descent through the male line as the way to determine a person's automatic Jewish or non-Jewish religious status[; t]he same used to be true of Rabbinical Judaism", and Ruth converted into Judaism via a levirate marriage to Boaz, for Karaites to have "married non-Israelite (Iberian, Italian, Indian, etc.) women" and have them convert was seen as perfectly fine. Also, prisoner-of-war women who chose to stay after a whole month converted into Judaism.

Also, women were usually not allowed to convert outside of Yahadut P'rushit—heck; they're not even allowed to be involved in sedarim l'Pesach, Torah and Talmud study, or donning of tefillin and tallitot in haredi communities: that's a "man's job", as the saying goes, in that community. After all, "[t]he rabbis are not concerned that women are not spiritual enough; rather, they are concerned that women might become too spiritually devoted".

Is There Actually a Beauty In Marrying On Shabbat (Originally On Twitter)?

To get married on Shabbat is actually a nice idea. Marriage represent G-d's covenant with Israel. So does Shabbat--e.g., the day of rest. As someone who married on a Yom Shabbat opined, "I was married on a Saturday evening in summer, just at the beginning of sunset. We wanted to honor Shabbat, and so we did Havdalah first. Our officiant was very traditional and expressed his qualms about starting before sundown. Ultimately, we did the cocktail hour first and pushed the ceremony back as late as we could, and he acquiesced. It wasn't fully dark yet, but it felt like a respectful, if not fully halachic, compromise on both sides. I think that for less observant (or non-observant Jews), that kind of conversation and creativity is more important than observing strict halachic rules and missing the beauty and richness of the tradition, but then again, I'm not frum. For what it's worth, it was the most "Jewish" wedding that I or any of my guests had ever attended. Everyone told me how beautiful and moving it was, and many of our guests asked numerous questions about the traditions, rituals, and prayers they had encountered."

Besides, where in Tanakh can one read that one can't marry on Shabbat--let alone enter into marital contracts on Shabbat or write on Shabbat? Furthermore, the Bride of Yeshua, Heaven as Eternal Shabbat...shalom!

Christianity Without Tikun-Ha'Olam Is Useless--and Certainly Not Even Really Christianity

We weren't given, e.g., the Great Commission for no reason--and fulfilling the Great Commission requires tikun-ha'olam. If you live your life by that "'Expectation is the root of all heartache'," so much for being a Christian, then. Jesus told us to expect pain & sorrow, and that things will get better if we try to help them be. After all, " “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."

And what does a light do? Well, "there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light." Lights shine on things. Lights reveal things. Lights also, if they can, refine things. Remember that lights contain heating elements. "Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand."

You don't help people by keeping things in the dark, let alone by not using things to learn from them. After all, "[a]s iron sharpens iron, [s]o a man sharpens the countenance of his friend." Not only that, but light needs to be a light to darkness as well, that the darkness may come into the light if it can.

For example, "if the whole church comes together in one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those who are uninformed or unbelievers, will they not say that you are out of your mind? But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you."

People are not going to be convinced if the Church seems out of touch with realities of the world. Focusing on "sweetness and light" and the "positive" all of the time is not being in touch with what's going on. Granted that you are to "[s]et your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God." That doesn't mean to ignore or mitigate the realities of the world--in fact, that means that you're to "not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."

Remember that the world tries to hide things, keep secrets, make things look better than they are. No wonder, then, that the world won't help the least of these. After all, why would one help the least of these if he or she denies or mitigates them or their circumstances in the first place?

"“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

"“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”"

After all, "[p]ure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." "To keep oneself unspotted from the world" surely does not mean to focus on the "positive" and "sweetness and light" all of the time when the "positive" and "sweetness and light" is surely not what widows and orphans are going through. Besides, again, how will you "make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," if you won't address the reasons why they need the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in the first place? After all, there's no need--because there's no lack or void--of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit  in a "positive" world of "sweetness and light".

Furthermore, we're not in that "positive" world of "sweetness and light" yet. In that day, "[n]o more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord." But it's not that day yet--so we need to live in the reality of the day that we are in right now--and living in the present requires that we focus on and try to make better the reality of the present, no matter how un-"positive" and lacking in "sweetness and light" it is.
