Do Skeptics Make You Have a Cow?

The Red Heifer is the single most incomprehensible commandment in the Torah. By the same token, it most accurately represents the most incomprehensible part of the soul.

Wow that was really entertaining! What an idea to bring on a cow with an adorable accent! The message was brought out really clear and interesting Reply

Hey, your 'red heifer' story has a picture of a cow with upper front teeth...cows don't have upper front teeth. (not being that picky, just thought someone ought to say something. Reply

During the long preparations for this video, several species of talking cow (bovina loquentes) were genetically engineered in various laboratories before they were educated in the best yeshivot of Budapest. Many of the early models were designed in the usual manner, i.e. without upper front teeth (absentis dentes superiores). Unfortunately, they were unable to clearly pronounce the necessary dental consonants -- i.e. /t/, /d/, /n/, and /l/ -- in Hungarian, Hebrew and English. And consequently, for the pedagogic reasons, new liberties had to be taken in the genetic experimentation, until, finally, a viable Bovina Loquentes was fashioned. Reply

Yes, but...(says no), would such a creation still be Kosher? (Can we still eat after you kill it; at least the Kosher parts?) Reply
