Rabbits Chew Their Cud??? An Error In The Bible?
Did you know that the Bible says that Rabbits chew their cud and that atheists and nonbelievers quickly point this out as an error? Well obviously, Rabbits do not chew their cud. However, does this mean that the Bible has an error in it? A quick study of the Hebrew phrase, "alah garah", shows that the phrase is used to describe animals that practice rumination, chewing their cud, and refection, chewing their food raised back up after swallowing, such as a rabbit. Therefore, no error. It should be noted that the terms, such as rumination and refection are modern terms and not a disctinction, known to the ancient man. This shows that the common objections to the Bible are very disingenuous, to say the very least. This also shows the importance of the Bible believer getting back to their Hebraic Roots to fight the cultural war that we are now engaged.
