    Each of the sources you quoted based their assertions on a lived moment of revelation. You distort their words and pervert their intention when you use them to justify a theology anathema to all they believed in. In maybe the most ludicrous instance you use the mishan in avot which talks of a voice calling out from the revelation at Sinai to justify the belief that the that very moment never happened! It is intellectual dishonesty at its worst. No-one can deprive you of your right to believe what you want but it is foolishness to assert that the rabbis of the Talmud, the Baal Shem Tov or Rav Soloveitchik would agree with you in fact those who you quote would be horrified to be used in this article.

    from the article: What is Shavuot for Jews who question whether God gave the Torah at Sinai?
