Proves that I accept it. You are one who was asking me for my views on the dating systems.

I don't know how the fact that you accept it is relevant here, apart from not being very suprising in light of what I was saying.

Right. There were no functioning temples in Odessa (but plenty of churches. My mother walked me into one when I was about 7 to show me how people worship and how beautiful the art is).

The Bolsheviks destroyed almost all the churches in Russia. The grunt of oppression was on the church, after the Bolshevik revolution.

If it didn't, you wouldn't have brought it up. But you did.

I asked to confirm my guess about you.

Interesting. So Jews are just hateful of Christians because of their genes?

No, Jews would rather live in a secularized country, if it's not Jewish. Only when it comes to their religion, they would like to live in a virtual theocracy.

Very interesting. Weren't you the one arguing that a Jew is a religion, not an ethnicity?

I don't remember participating in that discussion, because the quesion is a weasely one, used to disown "atheistic" Jews.

You people spin this so much, you get caught up in your own contradictions.

LOL! You have caught your own tail, so far, and keep chasing it.

Well. You asked me. I told you. If now you don't find your own question to be relevant, then you have in fact caught your own tail :)

Oh? There were quite a few churches in Odessa, but not a single temple (keep in mind, that odessa was 30-40% Jewish at one point)

I asked to confirm my guess about you.

That's a very good guess. Shows that you know that there were no temples and no Jewish schools in USSR, yet you still attempt to show that Bolsheviks were anti Christian, where in reality they were more anti religion (any religion). My grandmother's grandfather was a Rebbe. Not a Rabbi - a Rebbe (for those who don't know, in Hasidic branch of Judasm, rabbi is more like a priest - someone who does service in the synagogue, where Rebbe is more like a Bishop - a regional authority figure on religious issues). My grandmother went to a Jewish school in Ukraine before the revolution, and her whole family was quite religious. The only reason that I am not is... surprise, the revolution. You can rest assured that my kids will be much more religous that I am. So, kopchenaya kolbasa and etc, is quite temporary, even those who shop on brighton manage to give their kids opportunities to become more Jewish (so to speak) then they had..

Not at all. Being Jewish is an ethnicity as well as a religion.. You are even trying to prove it by saying that Jews that are not religious have something else in common?

LOL! You have caught your own tail, so far, and keep chasing it.

Guy, you need to chill out with a nice cold bottle of Baltika
