|Off topic: the ancient Hebrews understood charting as a form of bc.|
|If you look at the rules on when a man and woman can have sex in Leviticus, you find she is only allowed to be approached during her most fertile time of the month.|
|Her being "unclean" during her non-fertile times means she will be most likely to be ovulating when approached for relations. Having sex during your most fertile time also increases your chance of conceiving a boy (important to the patriarchal Hebrews), as sperm that carries genes for a boy are less long lived and have the best chance of fertilizing an egg right at the peak of fertility.|
|Of course. It is all about the patriarcy. Men owned their wives. Men owned their children. And they wanted sons.|
|I'm sorry but an essay on something is not the same as reading the actual law or seeing actual verses.|

|A person with a soul has a level of (tahorah/ kedusha) purity/ holiness. Creation of life is a higher spiritual level of tahorah and kedusha. A pregnant woman is considered to be on a higher spiritual or holiness plane bacause she contains more than one soul (holy spark from G-d). A woman who is at the fertile point of her cycle, at the point where the egg is ready or is about to be ready to be fertilized has more "holiness" because of the potential creation of life. A woman whose body has let go of that potential life (by birth, miscarriage or menstruating) now has a void of that holiness, her body no longer containing that other potential life. Therefore she immerses in the mikva to begin te cycle again, in holiness and purity.
Men have a similar status when they have an immision of semen, because that is also a potential for creating life.

So of course it is easier and quicker for christians to give you the answers you seek. That is just a fact.
|ok, but it specifically said ti was in reply to my thread. The last one specifically commented on something I had said. So, however indirectly, your bringing it up from conversation I've been in or things I've said and then disliked my questioning it.|

I try to differentiate people from Canaan, Israel, Judah by using specific terms. I would use Jews for the people dispersed from Judea/Israel after the sack of Jerusalem, and their descendants to the present day.
I think you, as a Torah observant and may I say, conservative Jew, believe G-d literally handed Moshe the Torah and told him oral Torah ca 1200 BCE. Other Jews (and secular Biblical scholars) think this is a tradition, not literal fact. Other Jews think the ancient ones did the best they could at explaining and defining their world, their relationship to their diety ca 700 BCE, and then in more modern (100 CE into medieval) times rabbis reinterpreted the ancient laws through the prism of their current situations. With much heated debate.
