Yes, they were passed along and eventually written down.  But 
whether they are part of the Torah or not, is purely a matter of 
opinion, not fact.  Your background leads you to accept them as part 
of the Torah, mine leads me otherwise.  That's why we try to keep 
explicitly religious opinions out of the discussion and stick to 
language and philology.

This time, like all times, is a very good one if we but know what to do 
with it.
