What is now commonly titled Judaism is centered on rabbinical
To understand the evolution of what is called Judaism one
must understand the history of rabbinical teaching.
The first period of
rabbinical teaching is termed "Zugot" - a plural of two identical objects.
The Babylonian Talmud
(Pesachim 109b-112a) contains an extensive discussion of dangers of zugot and
of performing various activities in pairs. The discussants expressed belief in
a demonology and practices of sorcery from which protection was needed by
avoiding certain activities.
The period termed Zugot began
when the Jewish revolt, led by Judas Maccabaeus and Jonathan Maccabaeus,
against the Seleucid Empire succeeded. Simon the Maccabee of the Hasmoneans
reigned during the Hebrew Hasmonean Dynasty from 142 BC to 135 BC.
period termed Zugot lasted from the founding of the
until the rise of the Herodian Dynasty which was a vassal of the
Roman Empire. Herod the Great
bolstered the legitimacy of his reign by marrying a Hasmonean princess,
Mariamne, and assured himself the throne with the murder of the last male
the rise of the independent Judean state under Simon the Maccabee of the
Hasmoneans, the nature of Judaism changed from theocracy based on the natural
moral order with priests intrepreting God's will into a nomocracy with a list
of do's and dont's. It is here were the

In a theocracy a 'god' or 'deity', recognized as the
supreme civil ruler, is represented either in a personal incarnation or, more
often, via religious institutional representatives - rabbi in Talmudism or pope
in Catholism for example. (There are no pure theocracies left on Earth. Iran

nomocracy reflected a radical transformation from the rule of the Hebrew
community through the High Priest, to rule of the community through the
judicial and legislative discourse of the Supreme Court. The High Priest, the

figurehead who ruled in the Temple but was still subservient to the Supreme

in both Israel and
Babylon. The compilation of
the rabbinic commentaries in the Gemara gave rise to the Talmud. The
Saboraim definitively edited Talmud and the Geonim's task was to
interpret the Talmud and render legal
decisions in agreement with its
teachings. The Geonim decided issues on which no ruling had been rendered
before the Talmud was assembled.

halakha (the Way).
Maimonides codified the Talmud
in the Mishneh Torah listing the 613 mitzvot (commandments) paraphrased
in the preface.
The opinions of the Talmudic rabbis are divided between
those who seek the purpose of the mitzvot and those who do not question them.
The former argue that if the reason for each mitzvah could be determined,
people might try to achieve what they see as the purpose of the mitzvah,
without actually performing the mitzvah itself.

numerological and astrological elements of the
Kabbalah, became preeminent and was the

"Crimean Karaims are people of Turk(ic) descent
who have adopted Karaism. Karaism is Mosaism, an independent, non sectarian,
monotheistic religion of Abraham." - Mehmet Tütüncü
Karites are a splinter group of the
Turkish Khazar Empire. Black
Ethiopian Jews are Semites.
Karaite Judaism or
Karaism is a Jewish movement characterized by the recognition of the Tanakh as
its scripture, and the rejection of rabbinic Judaism and the Oral Law
(the Mishnah and the Talmud) as binding.
When interpreting the Tanakh,
Karaites strive to adhere to the plain meaning (p'shat) of the text. This is in
stark contrast to rabbinical
Judaism, which employs the methods of p'shat, remez (implication or clue),
drash ("deep interpretation," based on breaking down individual words, e.g.,
breaking down "be'ra'shit" to "beit" "ra'shit", which means two startings of)
and sod ("secret," the deeper meaning of the text, drawing on the
Torah ("Teaching," also known as the Five Books
of Moshe Rabbenu), Nevi'im ("Prophets") and Ketuvim ("Writings") - hence
TaNaKh. The elements of the Tanakh are incorporated in various forms in
Christian Bibles, with some variations, as the "Old Testament."
modern times Karaite Judaism has formed its own independent Jewish
organization, and is not a member of any rabbinic
"Anti-Semitism is so
instinctive that it may quite simply be called one of the primal instincts by
which the race helps to preserve itself against total destruction. I cannot
emphasize the matter too strongly.

deeply hidden instinct with which every man is born. He remains
unconscious of it, as
of all other instincts of

Orthodox Judaism is characterized by belief that the
Torah and its laws are Divine, were transmitted
by Yahweh to Moshe Rabbenu,
are eternal, and are unalterable; belief that there is also an oral law in
Judaism, which contains the authoritative interpretation of the written legal
sections of the Torah, and is also Divine by
virtue of having been transmitted in some form by
Yahweh to Moshe Rabbenu along
with the Written Law, as embodied in the
Midrash, and innumerable
related texts, all intrinsically and inherently entwined with the written law
of the Torah; belief that
Yahweh has made an exclusive,
unbreakable covenant with the Children of Israel to be governed by the
Torah; adherence to Halakha, or Jewish law,
including acceptance of codes, mainly the Shulchan Aruch, as authoritative
practical guidance in application of both the written and oral laws, as well as
acceptance of halakha-following Rabbis as authoritative interpreters and judges
of Jewish law; belief in Jewish eschatology.
Orthodox beliefs may be
most found in their adherence to the thirteen Jewish principles of faith as
stated by the Rambam (Maimonides).

This website defines a

agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which
requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church
buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a
personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate
This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the
intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the
international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The
international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system,
corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex
and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered
behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on
cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the
point of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined
precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has
garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the
populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which
have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media
psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family
and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
