I'm coming out, but it's not what you think
I've been calling myself an agnostic for years. In the back of my mind, I knew I was doing it to "hedge my bets," so to speak, as I'm sure most agnostics do.
I come from a 100% Jewish background. I went to Saturday school at Temple Israel in Minneapolis almost every Saturday until the 10th grade. I lost family members in the Holocaust. I respect my ancestry, heritage, traditions, and the state of Israel.
I will always be considered a Jew, but I am an Atheist.
When I finally let myself say those words, it felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.
I believe in Science, Mother Nature, Animals, Karma, Love & Hate, and even ghosts & UFOs, but I don't believe in god.
On a side note: When I told Tom about my revelation, he said, yeah, I've known that about you for the last 7 years.
Well, there it is.
