Clearly a lot more accurate teachings than at those orthodox yeshivas of yours that tell you about Mormons living in outer space.

Actually, some Muslims believe we might have lived in outer space.

As to what Eden was, I do not know and leave the door open that it could be another Dimension, Another planet, a level of heaven etc.

So even if we are already circumcised, we still have to give up blood before we can convert to Judaism?

Yes. Don't do it! However, if you convert reform, they'll give you a break. As a matter of fact, you can even remain an atheist.

Yes. It is part of the ritual that all male Jews must go through.

Not true. Reform conversion also includes Hatafat Dam Brit.
