Great religions of the world had spread the light of faith,
morality and learning in the ages past. However, by the
sixth century AD, so completely were their scriptures and
teachings distorted that had the founder or the Prophet of
any one of them returned to Earth, he would
unquestionably have refused his own religion and
denounced its followers as apostates and idolaters.
Judaism had, by then, been reduced to an amalgam of
dead rituals and sacraments without any spark of life left
in it. Also, being a religion upholding a strong racial
identity, it never had a message for other nations or for the
good of the humanity at large.
Through mysticism and magic many polytheistic ideas
and customs again found their way among the people,
and the Talmud confirms the fact that idolatrous worship
is seductive. The Babylonian Gemara (popular during the
sixth century and often even preferred to Torah by the
orthodox Jews) illustrates the state of the sixth century
Jews' intellectual and religious understanding. It contains
jocular and imprudent remarks about God and many
absurd and outrageous beliefs and ideas, which lack not
only sensibility but also inconsistency with the Jewish
faith in monotheism.
