So nice of you to decide someone else's religious beliefs are crazines.

All food should be placed in the oven before the Sabbath begins, since none may be placed in the oven during the Sabbath.

On the Sabbath, the oven door may only be opened once, all the food removed, and then closed. On the Holidays, the oven door may be opened/closed at any time as often as desired.

On the Holidays, the temperature may be adjusted (but not initiated or turned off) at any time following the instructions in the owner's manual (because there is a delay between the request and implementation).

On the Holidays, raising the temperature is not permitted because there is no indication when power is on to the heating elements. Lowering the temperature is permitted when necessary for food preparation.

Yep, that's craziness - either that, or a mistranslation of "heating elements" from the original Old Testament Hebrew.

Mass silliness.

I wonder what the Jerusalem hospitals' ER procedures are on the Sabbath? Can the emergency doctors do anything? Do ambulances even pull up to the doors, or is that considered "work"?

Archaic silliness, yes. IMHO And frankly, I don't think God really cares a heck of a lot, or is offended very much, about oven operation on any given day.

No offense but, this is how I see it.

I couldn't care less if someone disrespects my beliefs. Go ahead, call it craziness. The nice thing about believing in Truth is that my beliefs are able to withstand any and all disrespect.

Thus, for the same reason, I am under no obligation to respect others' beliefs. Make no mistake, I do respect their right to believe whatever they wish.

Disrespect? Bring it on. It will only strengthen my belief. Anyone who can't stand some scrutiny of their beliefs might question whether they're satisfied with what they believe.
