I was there. So was iwish.

I'm just curious, are you Jewish HyperionGap? If you are Halachically Jewish, like it not, you were there too. And that means you accepted the Torah and all its mitzvos, even if you reject them now.

Well, my soul sure was there, and if you're Jewish so was yours. So let's see: You deny the divinity of the Torah and the revelation at Mt. Sinai, yet have the audacity to say that Judaism is whatever one wants it to be.

Explain where your idea of Judaism (whatever it is) comes from and how it differs from other religions.

Or what? You're neither my mother, nor my rabbi, nor my comparative religions professor (which I never took, so I would actually have to do a fair amount of research to answer that question).

The way this board currently is consists you two just gang up on anyone that has a different viewpoint makes it a very uncomfortable and unpleasant environment. I and I'm sure many others are quite grateful to have your input when people ask questions, but it's really not necessary to make it a point of criticizing every single topic that doesn't subscribe to your worldview.

Is there any way you two could make a conscious effort to be slightly less self-righteous? I really do think it would go a long way.

If "different viewpoint" is contrary to halacha, I will point that out since this is the Judaism forum. With all due respect, if somebody's viewpoint does not conform to Judaism's standards, he/she should not post them here.

Until you come up with a different answer, we will stick to Judaism began at the revelation at Mt. Sinai and that G-d gave us only one Judaism to follow.

If your mother is Jewish, you are too. It's that simple.

What's the logic behind considering yourself Jewish if you don't even believe in the divinity of the Torah? It's the Torah that INVENTED the concept of Jewishness, yet you deny its divinity and then define yourself by it, against its own definition.

The original topic was lost long back.

The purpose of this forum is dialogue not war.
