well people are either saying it's a religion or it isn't. If it IS a religion, then a person can't be atheist and jewish. If it ISN'T a religion, why is it being talked about as if it is?

A lot of people get it confused.

No disrespect to Jews that consider themselves Jews, but this is just from research and common sense IMO.

Judaism is a religion.

It's like me being a Muslim, that is my religion. I can't be a Muslim and an Atheist. I could come from a Muslim family and be an athiest, but I wouldn't be Muslim if I was.

People use Jew synonymously with the people as well as the religion, which is not correct. Now if someone practices and lives like a Jew, but doesn't believe in the religion, I think that is why he/she calls themselves a Jew. But in all actuallity, they arent.

Its like if I were to practice Muslim tenets, but I was an atheist. Like dress properly, not eat Pork, etc., yet I don't believe in God.

This is why I don't understand why you would refer to yourself as a Jew when you don't believe in the religion. But that's just how some people are. Even a lot of White people and people in general do not even think of a Jews race. All they hear is Jew and that is final. But like I said, most Jews are white. It's a religion, and perhaps culture, but that's where it ends.

You get me mate?

Yeah, people are calling themselves jewish, although they don't actually believe in any of the religion, they just follow the traditions, in which case I'd describe them as agnostic / atheist, and not jewish (religion) at all

Same here, but I believe that even though they are atheist that they still hold strong to their cultural background, which is why they still refer to themselves as Jewish. I guess thats how powerful family is for them.

EDIT: Man I cant stop thinking of a Burqa haha. sorry lol.
