According to the link which I posted a few up, he belonged to the Church of England.

Dan Dare appeared in "The Eagle" which was founded by an Anglican vicar so one might expect that the characters would reflect their creators beliefs; just as Superman shares those of Siegal and Schuster.

Impossible to do a show (or even a segment) on Jews without a mention of bagels.

First recorded mention of them was in 1610 community regulations of Krakow, which required women in child birth to be given bagles.
"The joys of Yiddish" - Leo Rosten

also the accompaniment of lox and schmeere, generally considered traditional originated in late 19th-early 20th (not quite sure of the year) century New York


That would presumably be because schmeer as we know it today is an American invention. I'd be ready to bet a rather large fortune, if I had such a thing, that in the shtetls people would have spread their bagels with curd cheese.

Thats true, but I think even then the combination of soft cheese (curd, cream or cottage) and salmon on a beigel is an early 20th century invention.

Derived J series question: what's a jubilee?

I think most people don't exactly know what it is/was, and there may be a few suprising answers.

According to one of the definitions, it may now be happening in Greece (debts being forgiven).

Q. Who did God moon in the Bible??

A. Moses. If you go to Exodus 33, right at the end it says:

Quote:
And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:

And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

Just wondering: is this writing style ("thou shalt") still used intentionally to make it sound more important and official?

Always worth searching the site. Jubilee has its own thread in this very forum.

I was using the King James verion, I'm guessing the old language is down to it being 400 years old :)

But there's no reason to keep using the old expressions. Perhaps a version-neutral example is "Christ Jesus", apparently only used once in Paul (sp?). People still use it, even when using a modernized Bible version. It's "heavy", it's "showing off", it's "complicated", and I doubt it's used intentionally to refer to Jesus as described by Paul. It's almost causing a headache, as if people randomly would refer to this website as "com.qi".
