    But one can use reason to see what's probable. Also, just because something can't be proven wrong doesn't mean it's right.

    Moses did not found Judaism and name it as such, he also did not name his followers as Jews.

    One person's reason is another's fantasy, and your last sentence posits me taking a position that I didn't.

    I take it that now that you have arrived we can look forward to more of your patented "Judaism is a crock" diatribes

    Are you even slightly aware that names sometimes evolve and/or change over time? I can play the same game back with you if you wish: Why are most self-proclaimed Arabs really not Arabs at all?

    Let me add:
    Atheism is baseless. . .
    Agnosticism is baseless. . .
    Skepticism is baseless . . .

    Does it not make Judaism a racial religion?

    Have you heard of any Chinese people converting to African-American?

    There is no mass revelation. The prophet/messenger receives the message of Revelation which is for his people also.

    I never said like that.
    I respect the Jews as I respect the others.

    They don't belong to any one religion to convert one.
    I don't get you, please elaborate.

    So you believe the Trojan horse most probably most likely did happen?

    But isn't this in and of it self a reason to question any and all? A proposition which cannot be falsified is by definition a proposition which has no relevance to observable reality!

    Just a quick side note here: I think you have terms reversed. Universalism is not the belief that only your religion is the true one; it's actually the opposite of that.

    You suggested that Judaism is a racial religion. I pointed out that if it was a matter of race there would be no conversion to Judaism. Just like a Chinese person can't "convert" to the African race. Since it is possible to convert to Judaism, it is not a racial religion.

    Sometimes the ignorance is just so great that its an affront to humanity and we as human beings need to remedy it.
