On revelation

The kiruv corporations often say that "No nation but Israel ever claimed to have experienced a mass revelation shared by every man, woman, and child." Now this statment is being called into question.

My two cents: I've argued previously that the fact that Israel says it experienced something at Sinai is, of itself, proof of nothing However I will make this small comfession: I do find it odd - not telling, but odd, - that no other nation managed to develop this sort of story about itself.
