JP,

Your "worlds" are chosen arbitrarily and some distinctions, like "star world" are just absurd.

Also, the midrashim are known to be wild and all of them should be taken with a grain of salt. The only reason you are taking these to heart is because they fit in with your syncretized worldview.

This view best takes into account all of the available evidence.

If you have a better idea, tell us about it.

Alternatively, one could take the position that the First chapter of Genesis is literally and historically true. That is a possibility, from both a traditional Jewish and a philosophical perspective. See, for instance, Rabbi Gottlieb's essay.

"The Talmud Chagigah 13b states that 974 generations of people existed before creation and were condemned to Gehinnom"

Wait, people? Or are your reptiles and fish in hell?

Ever wonder why it's called "faith"?

There might be some streimels in hell too.

Why does scripture need "proof" or "disproof". It does not purport to be a textbook of science, any more than Newton's Principia is a work of theology. You accept scripture as a repository of spiritual truth or you do not.
