I always like your special effects. The deep voice is a good way to communicate the two different ideas, between what they say, and what they mean.
I had never heard about this in-depth, so I imagine there are a lot of others that will learn something new from this as well.
Anyway here is the dictionary definition of Semite:
1. A member of a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the Near East and northern Africa, including the Arabs, Arameans, Babylonians, Carthaginians,
Ethiopians, Hebrews, and Phoenicians.
2. A Jew.
3. Bible. A descendant of Shem.
I also wonder.... what about people who were of another religion, and then converted to Judiasm? Are these people considered a semite? Or is it only
people who have a national heritage from the Middle East?
You also make a good point about where the line is drawn, whether it should include Christians or not. Because really, Christianity is just an updated
version of Judiasm, based on the same book and principals. The majority of the first Christians were Jews. Much like how Islam is just updated
Christianity, with yet another book, and another prophet/Son of God. Christians still believe in the entire old testament, plus the new. Muslims
believe in The Bible and Jesus (only as a prophet, not a saviour), as well as the Koran and Mohammed. I personally believe that Allah is just another
name/interpretation of Jehovah. Same God, different people. It's sad that these three major religions are all so at war, when they have the same
basic roots and beliefs.
It must be because of the:
"INFINITE GLOBAL CONCIOUSNESS!"
You need to make that your trademark and put it in every single podcast
. I must admit, it makes me laugh a little every time I hear it. lol.
