Why doesn't the Torah begin with the word God -- as it is written, isn't it possible to believe that time pre-existed God's creation of the world: what reason could there be for time to exist in eternity? Was time the map of creation? -- I thought Torah was? But Torah too is filled with chronology and measurements of time -- is our world only distinct from God because of (thru) time?

Actually that's five questions. Keep your eye on the ball!

Maybe count again.

Ah but you saw only five.

The teretz -- ask Blogger. And as a fellow blogger you should know that Blogger was down for the past couple of days.
