So I was reading an answer from Ask An Apologist here on CA concerning the Kabballah.
The apologist cited this article and I noticed something that really jumped out to me.
***One scholar is said to have created an artificial man by reciting various names of G-d. Much later stories tell of a rabbi who created a man out of clay (a golem) and brought it to life by putting in its mouth a piece of paper with a name of G-d on it. However, this area of Kabbalah (if indeed it is more than mere legend) is not something that is practiced by the average Jew, or even the average rabbi. ***
Is this even possible? Is this considered ‘occultic’? I thought only God could create life and even if he hand was in the creation of the golem, why would it be made in the first place?
