Why does a god need a red heifer? Facepalm

Wrong question. Why does god need a starship?

I've known since I was a kid. Granted, I hadn't seen it written down, so the first time I encountered it in writing, I was confused. I would have assumed that "i" was supposed to be another "f".

RE: Red heifer
It has to do with the supposed prophecy of a new temple being built in Jerusalem to signal the end times. According to the Old Testament supposedly, in order for a temple to function, a red heifer needs to be sacrificed in it to "cleanse the water".

That one is easy. "He(God) glories in the smell of its burning." Leastwise that is what the book says.

RE: Red heifer
Blood - we still don't like seeing blood today, but back in the day, it was a lot more impressive. Bleeding meant that there was a good chance of infection and death. Probably the most common cause of death back then.

That's probably why bloodshed is so often connected wit religious rituals - please take that animal's blood instead of mine.
