So, prove it?

So what are the proofs, then?? I want to hear them! :)

Existence of G-d

Rabbi Salomon still doesn't say whether G-d exists. He says, in essence, don't try to prove it; just live a good life according to the Torah. And if he says religion is faith-based and not fact-based, that's something I would agree with. Every religion can show how beautiful they are and Judaism was the first. All religions, in one way or another, just use Judaism's essence for their own. That's how and why the other religions were created. If one studies the Torah, there would be no need for other religions. I personally don't believe there is an afterlife - no proof of it, only a belief. The same is true regarding the existence of a god. At some point in the not-too-distant future, science will find the solution to immortality. We know why people die - scientifically -and it's just a matter of time when we learn to turn that switch off. See telomeres and telomerase for details to the solution.

I respectfully disagree...

For one thing, Judaism is not faith based. There isn't even a Hebrew word that directly translates to faith! (Emuna is often translated as 'faith' but it does not mean what the word faith means. The word faith means belief without proof) There are rational approaches to the existence of G-d as well as the validity of the Torah. As well as this, regardless of what science finds about death etc, this doesn't disprove G-d. Science is merely the mechanism of the physical world, the way in which G-d controls the world. In fact, the more science finds, the more we Jews should be in awe of the Being that created such a machine that not even modern technology can get close to replicating.

Where are the Proofs?

Can anyone direct me to where I can read about these proofs? Are we talking about Historical, scientific (Anti-Evolution), or both?

TORAH can be proven

I have seen it done at a lecture. There is unrefutable proof that show inherit contradictions in other religions and the authencity of Judiasm
