I know that is one of the main differences between Judaism and non-Judaism.

But how can I respond on any other level, I am not criticizing you, 
and I am not telling you what to believe.  I am describing to you 
what I know.

I do know that one of the reasons that G-d gave Moshe the Oral Torah, 
and why it is considered even more important than written Torah, is 
because if it is Oral knowledge, it couldn't be mistranslated and 
misunderstood as can be a written text.
