In this week’s episode: Genesis 12-15. We examine the not-so-heroic behaviour of the First Father Avram during his sojourn in Egypt as we ponder the nature of biblical heroes. We also consider the ramifications of time travel on choice, free will and the fate of Avram’s descendants in Egypt as Avram shoos away vultures in the “Covenant of the Pieces”. Will Skynet prevail?

@dmendelsohnaviv My fear is that this is the beginning of the next World War (if it hasn't already begun). - posted on 28/07/2014 20:38:10
@barnabasabrams fortunately, regimes in jordan, the emirates, saudi arabia, iran and egypt are also in ISIS crosshairs... #enemyofmyenemy ? - posted on 28/07/2014 20:35:28
@dmendelsohnaviv Good point. That just opens up a whole different dimension. #ageofanxiety - posted on 28/07/2014 20:33:34
@barnabasabrams absolutely! ... any self-proclaimed "islamic caliphate" would have to remove the "crusader" presence in the middle east - posted on 28/07/2014 20:32:23
@dmendelsohnaviv But do you think ISIS is going to shift its gaze towards Israel? I'm genuinely curious b/c I hadn't even thought of it. - posted on 28/07/2014 20:31:29
@barnabasabrams, the reluctance to negotiate as a strategy is ultimately self-defeating b/c, inevitably, someone worse always comes along - posted on 28/07/2014 20:28:43
@dmendelsohnaviv Now, once they get their way and Iraq is divided into 3 states, THEN they'll turn their attention there - posted on 28/07/2014 20:15:12
