All of the Abrahamic religions are riddled with dumbassery, but the Jewish faith does not get a lot of press for their eccentricities.   Maybe because they don't try to impose them on goyem?

 

How about being allowed to carry things in your hands on Sunday because of an invisible wire?

Not Sunday.  This is Jewish dumbassery.  Friday and Saturday.

Of course, dumb mistake on my part.

Instead of stringing the wire around a whole city, just string it around a small circular area in your backyard. Regard the small area within the circle as being outside the Eruv and now the rest of the world is "inside" your private Eruv - so you can carry stuff anywhere on the planet with breaking God's very important laws.

You could hang the wire upside down to invert its selection mode, I reckon.

 

But you must stay out of your backyard.  That is a gigantic improvement :-)

I strongly suggest not arguing with Talmudic reasoning.

That which is immune to arguments is not reasoning.

Talmudic scholars are prepared to argue anything.  Go ahead and argue with them if it pleases you.  You won't like it.  A trained Talmudist can turn reason inside out -- in ways even a Jesuit can't do.

What happens when Talmudic scholars hold opposing views? :)

Caution!   Mixing dogma and anti-dogma can be as dangerous as mixing matter and anti-matter.

They argue.  It's part of the process.  Like dragging a knife blade against a wet stone.  Their wits get sharper.

 

It's safe enough to argue with them.  Just not enjoyable.  Sort of like arguing with a hyper intelligent Jehovah's Witness.  Not my idea of fun.

 

Well, it can be.  On my last job I ran into a bunch of them on my way to work.  When I was invited to one of their meetings, I tried to be nice.  I told him that I didn't live there.  I only worked there.  He asked me if I ever ran into any of them.  I couldn't help myself.  I told him -- "Only when I'm driving.".
