Changing Directions

The Grandmuffti listened to an interesting lecture the other day by Rabbeinu Moreinu Dovid Gottlieb on the age of the universe and evolutionary theory. It struck Muffti that RDG was clearly right: Evolution is a sham based on its reliance on faulty connections between homology and genetic drift. Anyhow, maybe Muffti has been wrong all this time to put his credence in a godless universe and looking online found the Derech Institute program at Ohr Somayach and is applying now.

Any advice from our readers?

    Muffti, be sure to take the Kama Sutra and Human Sexuality courses at Ohr Somayach.

    Yawwwnnn…. this is a non-issue to anyone but the fundamentalists on either side.

    As far back as Rav Saadya Gaon (Talmudic-era Iraq) Rabbinic Judaism has explicitly allowed allegorical/non-literal interpretation of the narrative sections of the Torah.

    I sense a tongue in cheek.
