Answering A Question With Another Question

What do you think? What Am I supposed to think???“What do I mean?” What am I supposed to mean? Many attribute this unique cultural predisposition to Talmudic scholarship, particularly the Gemara. The Gemara (500 CE) represents Rabbinical analysis of the Mishnah (200 CE – itself an analysis of the Torah) and is presented in the form of questions and answers in a kind of virtual debate that spans time and space. Others attribute this ethnic trait to Jews just being shifty and never wanting to give you a straight answer. Who is right? What? Do I look like a Talmudic scholar? Do I have to do everything for you? Let me give you a hint Einstein. One choice could be a reasonable possibility and the other choice is often voiced by Antisemites. Ha ha. Shmendrick.
