Gosse Theory? Take 15,721
Jumping the ban wagon of the jewish blogs, I feel compelled to discuss Gosse Theory. GH believes it to be totally irrational and a copout. Gil, on the other hand, simply says, “Could be.” I have to side with Gil. I may be mistaken, but I think the point Gil is making is that it really does not matter. In other words, does understanding Bereishis 100% really make a difference whether you’re going to put on tefillin tomorrow? No. So, let it slide. Gosse Theory, like any other theory is merely trying to find a way to temoporarily alleviate any hashkafa/emunah problems one may have. Granted, you may be bothered later on, such as next year, but until that time, go do some chesed. Make yourself useful.
