Yes and no. I would be know as a Christian which is essentially a sect of Judaism.

I consider what is known as a "Jew" today to be the sect of Pharisees. The Essene and Sadducee are essentially extinct. So called Jews today are composed mostly of converts and mixed in with other races. Christians who started as Jew also did the same.


Gentiles were part of the plan all along.

Amos 9
“ On that day I will raise up
The tabernacle[c] of David, which has fallen down,
And repair its damages;
I will raise up its ruins,
And rebuild it as in the days of old;
12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom,[d]
And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,”
Says the LORD who does this thing.
13 “ Behold, the days are coming,” says the LORD,

Zab Judah practices Judaism (a well-known pro-boxer)

But he is black, so not a jew in the racial sense of the term
There is no racial aspect of the term. It a myth.

Quote:
He adopted the religion of the ancient israelites called Judaism
Me too. The sect started by Christ.


Quote:
there are jews in many different countries because they scattered themselves around for a long long time, but they kept their culture alive, and had sex
Same here. It does not make it a race by any modern definition.

Quote:
Sometimes with only their own kind and sometimes outside, but they kept their culture intact, and reproduced, and lived together

And that is what makes them a race
Nothing but a myth plain and simple.

Hello jimj,


No sir. In your opinion. In this thread as is typical of most of them I tend to present evidence such as quotes and provide sources. For example not even Jews can tell who a Jew is by looking at them.

The table below shows the Jews as triangles genetically. As we can see Syrians and Palestinians are more "racially Jewish" than is the Ashkenazi who as we see again is essentially a Turk. Hence the term Ashkenaz who was a grandson of Japheth(though Gomer), not Shem(Genesis 10). So eh are Palestinians Jews?

That is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.
As for the Madoff case, a part of me sympathizes with the people who were scammed by him and a part of me doesn't. To a large degree, these are(or in some cases "were") wealthy people we are talking about and they should've known better. One of the guys who got scammed had the gonads to suggest that the gov't should be providing assistance(money) to the people who got scammed by Madoff.

Hmm, it couldn't possibly be because the ones there are not allowing access to water, food, medical aid, and bulldozing their homes.

I am torn about ppl who were scammed. On one hand I feel bad but on the other why did some of them have their money invested all in one place. Especially if they had millions?

Anyway, life is not fair sometimes, money comes and money goes. Everyone survives somehow.

What about poor pigs who don't want to do anything else than receive a free hand out from the government....ever thought why they are poor?

Not every one didn't have a chance in life...look at Obama and Oprah who came from backgrounds with little hope and made it and you don't have to make it like them but there are many examples of people who made something of their life instead of relying on the governement, so why are the rich people different than the poor, and they still want the same bailout....
