“If someone doesn’t respect evidence, what evidence are you gonna give them to prove that they should respect it? If someone doesn’t value logical consistency, what logical argument are you gonna give that will demonstrate that they should?”

Enquanto Moisés mantinha as mãos erguidas, os israelitas venciam; quando, porém, as abaixava, os amalequitas venciam.
Quando as mãos de Moisés já estavam cansadas, eles pegaram uma pedra e a colocaram debaixo dele, para que nela se assentasse. Arão e Hur mantinham erguidas as mãos de Moisés, um de cada lado, de modo que as mãos permaneceram firmes até o pôr-do-sol.Êxodo 17:11,12
