Joe is a Judaism monomaniac. He is incapable of having a broader discussion about religion, he can only communicate with posts having to do with Judaism specifically.

Er, in order for my statement to be wrong, atheism would have to BE the converse of Judaism, because I said it is not. Then in your next sentence you say that I am unable to 'converse Judaism', which...

Converse isn't a verb.



Very astute. Atheism isn't an ISM like liberalism or fascism. It is not an ideology or set of beliefs. It is a condition or state, like albinism or pauperism. So is theism.

I DO appreciate that you don't hate us, Joseph.

No one can escape choosing for themselves what meaning their life has. Choosing an outside authority to assign that meaning is still one's own choice.

The meaning I have found is to strive to live...

I have no beef with a faith- or revelation-based position. I was specifically addressing the issue of geneology as objective evidence for something besides who someone's ancestors were.

Acknowledging our limitations isn't the same as debunking. I have not tried to disprove the geneology of Jesus, only pointed out there is reason for uncertainty.
