This can probably be blamed on Chick tracts. In Waco, Texas, Bill Nye the Science Guy was booed for saying that the moon reflects the light of the sun, rather than actually producing light of its own. This apparently clashed with their reading of Genesis 1:16. Sigh. Just...sigh.

Wow. That is sad.

In the Talmud (I think) somebody compares the Jewish people to the moon because just like the moon's light is only a reflection of the sun's, the light of the Jewish people is only a reflection of G0d.
This was mentioned by somebody on the first Matisyahu CD. I'll check it later for the source, but Talmud sounds right.

Gotta love fundamentalist Christians.

OOooo Good point. I remember it from the Matisyahu CD, but that makes me afraid that it might be some kinda hassidus, and then... well, I don't wanna go there. Still, we KNOW stuff! Goooooo Hebrews!
