Evidence Based Religion!
I love how Professor Fleming frames this course as his own struggle to reconcile the Bible and evidence that refutes or supports. Auditing an NYU class from home is an unreal dream.
Ignores what Israel has to say about itself
This pod is a very western-Academic attempt to understand Israel and its beliefs. The class analyzes Israel through a biased western lens. It fails to consider what Israel has to say about itself, which would require examining the Talmud and important sages like Maimonides, the Kuzari, the Maharal and Rav Kook. The class fails to compare and analyze historical events against the unique prophecies and long-held beliefs of the Jewish people. It Has no problem referencing and studying western academics but doesn’t touch Israel’s respected thinkers.
Excellent teacher, nice class!
I like the way he is opening his students intelligence
