Ok so this orthodox hotshot who probably thinks that girlfriends are forbidden comes along to my blog with the name "Factual Basis" and his mission is to "prove" that orthodox judaism aka religion, has a "factual (provable) basis" in his own blog which he calls, * drum roll * Factual Basis.
Since he can't come up with one coherent argument I started calling him Factual Bull Crap and he has been a pain in the ass whining about it.
The thing is on the about section of his blog he wrote "The Torah is G-d’s word and it is a FACT! This is a blog of my thoughts, views and ideas on traditional/observant Judaism today. It is an answer to some of those attacking the Rabbis and G-d’s word as man’s word."
In other words, he is saying that the word of the rabbis is equal to the word of God (should one exist).
There are two issues with this statement that I can see.
1) Oral traditions (the ones that were supposedly passed down to present day rabbis all the way from Moses) are not as reliable for accuracy as written traditions. To pretend that oral traditions and written traditions have equal reliability is intellectually dishonest, and this kind of pretending is exactly what orthodox judaism does.
2) The word of men simply cannot equal the word of God (should one exist). The word of the rabbis is indeed man's word.
In conclusion, Factual Bull Crap is a nut job for equating something that a human being may say to something that God (should one exist) may say.
