bta has another swipe at King Solomon - the wisest of all men. In one of the comments he sets down an argument that really gives the lie to the claim that 'The Oral Law' was transmitted through the ages all the way down from Sinai. I Quote:

The Tanach reports that the written Torah was both lost and completely forgotten for over 50 years and only rediscovered by the Temple priests (2Kings 22,8; 2Chronicles 34,15). It is inconceivable that an Oral Law could have been remembered when even the written Law was forgotten!

That is a real whopper. Can there be any sensible response to it? I don't think so.
