But I did get it. Who died and made you the Ayatollah of comparative religious indices?

I surely did not. And you lack the scholarly background or the objectivity to even attempt this endeavor if someone did appoint you.

You cant compare any of these systems with Vedanta. Its goals are crazily different than Western religious goals. Any serious "student" of Bhuddism would laugh at you (with equanimity, ideally).

It was never the goal of the Torah to offer a serious theology, universal ethics (its a tribal covenant for Gods sake!), or a basis for science. And yet you are analyzing its content in those terms.

Fool. LOL.

End of debate.

As usual you are confusing civil law with religious law. Where we live, they are separate systems with separate jurisdictions. I know this must blow your mind.
Occasionally you can surprise me with something intelligent.

The confusion is all yours. Please reread my post and address the issues.

----------
However, before the question I want you to be aware that it does not replace the other SCIENTIFIC based questions.

Suppose you have children and all are underage and they decided to convert to Christianity could YOU disown them and say they are no longer your children?

Would you be free of your LEGAL responsibilities to care and protect them?

Would they have any legal claims to your parents estate if they died intestate? If not why not?

Does a wife's use of a vibrator amount to infidelity?

According to the Canadian psychiatrist Norman Doidge, habitual viewing of porn is making men impotent when it comes to actual vaginal sex with a female. He says addiction to porn has and is rewiring the brains of tens of millions of porn addicts.

Is it so?

I don't know the answer.

Maybe, Hugh would know....

DE-POPULATION OF JAPAN AS YOUNG PEOPLE SHUN SEX:

Young Japanese men and women aren't having sex. The "celibacy syndrome" portends a demographic catastrophe. Japan's declining population of 126 million is projected to plunge a further one-third by 2060.

A 2011 survey found that 61% of unmarried men and 49% of women aged 18-34 were not in any kind of romantic relationship... a third of people under 30 had never dated at all...Although there has long been a pragmatic separation of love and sex in Japan - a country mostly free of religious morals - sex fares no better.... The Japan Family Planning Association (JFPA) found that 45% of women aged 16-24 "were not interested in or despised sexual contact". More than a quarter of men felt the same way."

COMMENT: Had all men or had most men been homosexual, the human race would have become extinct long ago.

When men had to get married to have sex, women were courted and loved. Later, they were honored for their contributions as wife and mother. These days, with the free availability of sex, women are treated as sex objects to be used and discarded like used condoms.

Men need to look for women who are gentle, chaste and accommodating, who have skills, character, personality and make good mothers.

Son, Jesus is not your business. WE understand and know that Jesus based on BIOLOGY was Jewish. WE also know and understand that He was divine.
Leave this matter and get back to the lessons taught and STUDY them.
Now you are contradicting yourself. You said that you are not Jewish, although you have Jewish ancestors and relatives, because your father was not Jewish. Well, according to the New Testament, Jesus' father was not Jewish either. Therefore, Jesus cannot be Jewish. There is no difference between you and the Jesus of the New Testament. Your father was not Jewish. Jesus' father as set forth in the New Testament was not Jewish.

Consistency, Hugh, consistency.

Japan is a neurotic, unnatural, ultra-hygienic, extra-martial, overly honor sensitive, under-sexed, super-civilized, uber-artistic, over-educated, hyper-technological idiocracy - a contradiction of sorts.

Wow, to all the positives in Japan. It appears a nation from outer space that's far ahead of global standards in most ways.

FOCUS.

Eric---You have told us that although you are not a Jew, you have Jewish ancestors and relatives.

HughBe--- So what, it is a fact.

Eric--- How did you do it?

HughBe--- I did nothing. Here is how it went. My Jewish grandfather saw my sexy non-Jewish grandmother and knew her. As a result my mother was born. Now had you the intelligence to call my mother Jewish I would have accepted it because she is the seed of a MAN who is a Jew.

As for me, I am no Jew as my father was not one.

I am the son of a Jewish woman but my father was not Jewish and so I am NOT Jewish. Compare my words to the example in the Tanach.

I know that you neither believe Moses nor God but I shall still quote the Torah.

"Now the SON of an Israelite MOTHER and an Egyptian FATHER went out AMONG the Israelites, and a fight broke out in the camp between HIM and AN Israelite." Leviticus 24:10

Clear his MOTHER did NOT make him an Israelite. My mother cannot make me a Jew.

Finally, your father is a Jew and so both you and your brother are Jews and nothing can change that, not even your love of LIES and stupidity. Your brother could worship an ANT, he shall always be a Jew.

As long as the women remain NORMAL I am comfortable with such a scenario.
