Thanks, Mrs Teacher.
May I interject?
A double is a writing form using two negatives to express a positive, like the examples you gave.
However, "That does not mean that you are not ignorant" is also a double negative. You used two "nots" when you shouldn't have. The correct sentence would be "That means you are ignorant".
You're welcome.
You are wrong.

To say "that does not mean you are not ignorant is grammatically correct".

YOU are welcome.

What's wrong with this sentence?

"that does not mean you are not ignorant is grammatically correct"

Or am I not supposed to correct you anymore?

<quoted text>LOL! YOU telling ME that Jewish is not a race- I know that better than you do.
But a unique culture or unique traditions has nothing to do with race and you really are ignorant if that's what you think.
But your ignorance about many things is well known so continue doing what you do best- staying as ignorant as you are.
Jewish is not a race because Jewish people do not share a common ancestory or biological distinction.

People from many different races over the centuries have become Jewish.

People of many different nationalities have become Jewish.

Being Jewish is more like being part of a religious movement.

If you were not born to a Jew, you can become Jewish through conversion.

It's a religion, of people that share many different cultures and/or unique traditions.

You just can't trust science,
Absolutly!!! And why should any ''smart'' person put trust in a false and corrupt method such as that?? Its you who is so easly to believe that a man with a degree, can term a word and method and you follow him/them to whatever conclusion they provide..
but you can trust the mythical book of historical fiction , written by ancient ignorant superstitious warmongering tribal power hungry cultists.
No, i trust in GOD! I dont worship a book,or a church bulding..

Your pride and hatred toward God shows tremendously.
They never lie like those peer reviewed scientists who arrive at conclusion by consensus and systematic verification through repeated observation updated at every opportunity.
You must go pray to see if it will rain tomorrow, you can't trust those danged meteorologists radar and satellite imagery.
You just hate it, when people show evidence, and corupt evidence at that, that dosent support your claim, i get it.. So the best you can do is mock and make fun..

That's so ture.

Their beliefs are from what they call "a lack of evidence".

Makes no sense to me, but whatever floats their boat.

<quoted text>Yes, as far as how this world come about i do. Reason being,(i) have found my evidence. I am satisfied and at peace with my belief.

And thats good, i believe every person should examine the methods/history of what they believe in. I could be wrong, but isnt the dateing method GTS in which they use ''is the core foundation'' to evolution?

Oh yes, i have questioned it in the begining and sought out flaws, and have found none that would change my mind. Do i fully understand the Bible? No. I have asked myself, well is they possibly something been left out that was important, and the answer is no. The most important ''message'' in the Bible is there, and thats how to recieve Eternal life through Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
If you haven't found the serious flaws in the bible, you haven't looked honestly and objectively.

The errors are glaring and unmistakeable.

<quoted text>Yeah.. I mean I tend to agree with typical "leftist" positions, but I just don't like identifying as either one. Especially now that, in the US at least, the left has farther and farther to the right lately.
"Left" and "right" are just distractions, labels used by both sides to paint the idea as either for or against them. It's one of the biggest flaws in US politics, making who supports something more important than whether it's a good idea, or not. The people who throw out such labels as "liberals" or "conservatives" as if they are bad names are as uninformed about politics as a member of Al-Quaida.

Ooops, did I just do what they do?

Actually, that is what race is, and yes, most of us Jews don't even follow the religion, but we still have the strong blood ties to the family. Rabbis don't even care if you are practicing Judaism or christian or pagan ... or even atheist like me. You do not pick your tribe/race, it's what you are born with. I am actually part of two races, Jewish and British, because my British portion is from the royal family the blood ties are direct, ironically the royal blood also explains a lot of my health issues, a problem with inbreeding that was not so recognized when the family was in it's heyday.

Maybe your related to the the Beta Israel, the Jews of Ethiopia.

Race is a genetic distinction, and refers to people with shared ancestry and shared genetic traits. You can't change your race; it's in your DNA. I could never become black or Asian no matter how much I might want to, even if they allowed me to "convert".

Common ancestry is not required to be a Jew.

Most secular American Jews think of their Jewishness as a matter of culture or ethnicity. When they think of Jewish culture, they think of the food, of the Yiddish language, of some limited holiday observances, and of cultural values like the emphasis on education.

I have always questioned, when Gods chosen people
would not be considerd a Jew any longer, as far as the bloodline goes?

Meaning it being bred out of them over the centuries..

Since the gods claimed by humans to exist are not real, meh. But eventually the bloodline may fade, become part of the generic human genome. However, the tribe has remained very close knit for so long it will take a lot of generations for it to fade and no longer be a separate race.
