In an effort to continue the civil portion of an interesting discussion... You will note, that I <a href="http://usmessageboard.com/showpost.php?p=523424&postcount=540">linked to the entire chapter.</a> Following those links, you have access to the entire Bible, and all the on-line resources of Blue Letter Bible. I have withheld none of the context, I have not taken the statement out of it's context in any manner to change its meaning. Nor have I added context, from sources outside of the Bible, to alter the meaning of the statement, "And the hare, because he cheweth the cud,..." to something other than, "The hare chews the cud." Contextually, I remain on rock-solid ground. "Health related issues" is not relevent to the validity of the assertion that the hare chews the cud. If the Bible were written by an infallible God, he would know that of all the reasons (including eating its feces) the hare might be unclean, chewing the cud is not one of them. It is certainly possible that the fallibility of "mere men" would lead them to conclude that the hare chews cud based on the hare's jaw movements, rather than its digestive mechanism. Of course, the reasons "mere men" were mistaken are irrelevent to the point that they were mistaken; just as reasons God may have had for asserting the hare chews cud are not relevent to the point that the hare does not, in fact chew cud. The point remains that the Bible, for whatever reasons one wishes ascribe, despite any excuses one might make for it, clearly asserts that the hare chews the cud, when in fact the hare does not chew the cud; proving that the Bible is wrong regarding the hare chewing the cud.
