"Diana, I don't know why some people gravitate to religion and others don't get it.  Easy answers, social cohesion, fear of death are my suggested hypotheses. Just park your brain at the door. Judaism, in addition, is what I call…"

"Speaking of self-loathing Jews, here is a video with Shmuely Boteach (narcissist extroadinaire) debating Sam Harris on the existance of God.   I so wish this guy would just finally convert to Christianity and stop being such an embarassment!"

"I moved from the USA to Israeli 10 years ago (aka "made aliyah"). I did so because I met a lovely divorced Israeli woman who had 4 children at a conference in Florida, and we remained in contact over a couple of years and saw…"

"Loren - I can identify with a lot of what you say.  Only recently did I look into the Pesach myth ... there doesn't seem to be any historical proof of Moses or any of it ... apart from maybe some leader of a group of lepers coming out of…"

"Shiran, I *do* question the legitimacy of Israel - I *know* all/most countries came about through war. I am a realist.  I want peace for everybody.  I find your view of Palestinians uncaring. I think the truth is more complex and question…"

"Hello. I'm wondering if you live in Birmingham AL. That's where I live. If you do live here and attend a humanistic temple, then I had no idea we had one here. I'll have to look into this."

"Diana, I was born into a secular Jewish family and upbringing. I was a conservative/progressive/Reform Jew, frowned upon by my orthodox school's ethos. I participated closely in all the rituals on a reform level. My Jewishness consisted of…"

"There is a new political conservatism which seems to be related to a more religious worldview. The only example I need is Ben Stein, who proves that knowledge does not equal rationality."

"I understand the desire for cultural survival. I live in Michigan, an American state which has lost its economic backbone and much of its population. As a state we have become culturally impoverished, and our educational system is suffering.…"

"I'm afraid that I come from the opposite end of this. I lost my belief in god about 11 years ago, which is around when I started getting interested in Judaism. I would convert to Judaism if it weren't for that pesky lack of belief in god.…"

"Lastly, as I said in my post, I feel a huge disconnect from all things Jewish, and I've yet to be convinced that there is any intrinsic value in simply keeping the tradition alive for its own sake. I am certainly not convinced that it is a…"

"@ shiran. I support Israel because it is home to people who, on the whole, share secular Enlightenment values, not a religion or a "nationality," and because I think Israel has a right to exist in peace. I also think the establishment of a…"

Hi Diana D and welcome to this great meeting place where religion is recognised for the superstition and crowd-control fraud that it is and for its inexcusable oppression of women --- and that God and gods are merely fictions inside human heads.
