A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

comment Are bats described as birds?
There's no such scientific category as "domestic animals" either. Doesn't mean it isn't a useful category for non-scientific purposes.

revised Is dispensationalism a theological framework or a hermeneutical approach?
Somehow the generic "man" feels less sexist than the plural "men". (That wasn't my main reason for editing, but all the other edits are fairly self-explanatory.)

revised When was the Torah written or compiled?
Tidied grammar. Added clarification from questioner's comments on one of the answers. I'm not fond of the first sentence (it invites the question, "Much later than what?", but I can't see an easy way to fix it without prepending an entire paragraph laying out the Moses hypothesis.

comment What is the meaning of the reference to 'stones' in Ecclesiastes 3?
Why do all the fields in the west of Ireland have stone walls around them? Usually, there are open gates, and sheep have the run of three or four fields, so why have the walls? Well, because they needed somewhere to put the stones, of course. I wonder whether analogous conditions existed in ancient Israel.
