ha ha, you didn't get it?
A scale of relativity of the different religious worldviews would mean that the religious scriptures of the world are evaluated on the basis of textual content, deeds of the founding prophets, universality of ethics and scientific information.
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.

There, You said it. Your moms' mom was not Jewish.
Therefore most Jewish denominations would not accept you as Jewish.
Now, lets pretend for the moment that you were born Jewish. I.E. Your Mom was Jewish because her mom was Jewish. And then you decided that the Christian path was the right path for you.
You would have the choice at that point to call yourself what ever you want. Just like you have the choice now. However, freedom to choose a label does not translate into the right of others to accept that label. So once you became Christian, even if you called yourself a Jew, virtually no other Jew would accept you as a Jew. The identities are mutually exclusive. You, as the outside would not have the right to redefine what the rest of the group accepts as membership criteria. Case closed on that one.
Regarding your quotation of Torah - it has been firmly established on the forum (and in real life) that us Jews are not fundamentalists i.e. we interpret and apply law rather than following your citations. Yes, we all know Judaism was originally patrilineal, and then it changed somewhere down the road - in Greek or Roman times.
However, we are now in modern times, and this is how Jews apply the law now. You have no standing to be aggrieved because you are not a member of our group. Nor are we preventing you from joining our group, provided you follow out entry process.
Frijoles---Therefore most Jewish denominations would not accept you as Jewish.

HughBe--- So what? I don't accept myself as Jewish and you believe that I would be concerned if others hold that same position.

Get back to the lessons that were delivered by me.

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?

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.

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.
