I only said it because Jim said: "all the academics that I have
read simply insist, point blank, that the ages of the Patriarchs do
not make sense, and that a coherent internal timeline of the
Patriarchal narratives is impossible."
If that is true, and ALL the ACADEMICS don't understand how the Torah
makes any sense in this regard, then it is also true that ALL of
those of us (in my experience) who have learned Torah from Chazal DO
understand that the Torah makes complete sense - I just didn't know
how else to phrase it, to make the distinction between those to whom
the Torah makes complete sense, and those to whom the Torah makes no
sense (at least this aspect of Torah under present discussion)
...the first paragraph of your post below, stating your
BELIEF in Chazal, is really a non-starter.
