To whom it may concern: Amongst Jewish outreach programs there is a certain proof of the divinity of the bible which is used frequently. I thought maybe someone on this site might be able to research this: The bible mentions four animals who either chew their cud or have split hooves. Some claim that these are the ONLY animals on the planet with only one of these qualities, thus proving that a person could not have authored the bible. (Leviticus 11:4)- States that the CAMEL, the CONEY, and the HARE only chew their cud, but lack split hooves..... and that the SWINE has split hooves, but does not chew it's cud. My question is: Is it true that these are the only animals which have either one quality or the other or is this "proof" being used falsely by these outreach programs? I hope that someone at your site will be able to help me with this issue. Thank you very much, Isaac Emano TARFRAY@AOL.COM
