(oops) knowledge or power out there, I don't know. I do believe everything happens for a reason. Maybe an atheist would consider that to be faith, but I consider it an expression of my contentment with the way my life has played out thus far. It has not always been happy or easy, nor will it always be, but it will be what it is for a reason that I cannot comprehend. Look at me rambling on. I make it a point to avoid religious or political discussions with anyone, with the rare exception of my boyfriend (who is Baptist, oddly enough) and here I am going on about it anyway. So, I will most sincerely wish you a Happy Hanukkah, whatever that might represent for you, maybe it is just a happy few days eh? Thank you for your pointy ear, kind sir!
*snikkr* that's funny. I guess I would be an atheist, since I don't believe in God. I believe there's some things that can't be explained by our puny human minds, going on "behind the scenes" if you will, and because I have a puny human mind, I will never be able to explain it, and neither will any human that ever exists.
I have an aversion to religion. Not faith, not devotion, not prayer, just organized religion, full of someone else's rituals and someone else telling me what will happen if I do XYZ etc. I embrace my Jewish heritage as something to be proud of, more like a racial heritage than a religious one. Whether I believe or practice or not, the Jewish community will always recognize me as a Jew, because my mother was a Jew and so was her mother. My children are Jews because I am. I embrace certain traditions and practices because they suit me, not because they offer any kind of spiritual salvation. But I don't consider it God. Maybe there are multiple beings of higher
