Jewish Atheist

An agnostic atheist perspective
from a once orthodox Jew.

foxtrotsky asked: yes, i imagine you as being a frisky old dude lol.

hahah totally, I think I’ll make for an awesome old dude. I’m already working on my old dude skills: grumpy, prankster, not giving a fuck, love jello, totally happy to sit in a rocking chair for hours, a depraved sense of sexuality knowing that I could die at any moment! And already working to prevent any glaucoma - years ahead of time! =D

I’m gonna get me some hot sweet pie from all the sexy senioritas .. y’know, bc old lady’s make great food.. of course…. yeah…. hahaha

foxtrotsky asked: what kind of old person do you think you'll be?

Half curmudgeon, half happy-old-prankster. I see myself inviting kids to the porch, where I’m sitting in a rocking chair smoking a bowl, and as soon as they get there threatening to kill them with my cane, lol. “Get off my lawn!” hahaha being old is gonna be awesome

also, I’ll probably be shtupping all the old widows in the neighborhood, hahahaha

shoot me some messages, yo!
anon or not. normal or just fucking weird.

Anonymous asked: Thoughts on the deaths of Aaron's sons? I'm esp confused by Vayikra 10:3. Why doesn't Moses show a little more sympathy?

Idk. I was looking at and the whole story is pretty weird. I’m really not sure what the motivation was behind the author who invented the story. But it’s fucking weird. Aaron’s kids die suddenly, apparently killed by god, and moses tells aaron not to mourn and something to the effect of “their death will sanctify god” which is fucking weird (kinda like, “their deaths will prove that the holy services are a big fucking deal and not to be trifled with.” -actually, considering this is in leviticus, maybe the P author (Priestly) put it in so that they could garner more respect and power. esp since yeah, ok, that’s officially my new theory.

Theological Question.
I’m amused by wondering if anyone in the U.S. administration has asked the theological question posed in today’s cartoon. 

I pray no-one does.

so the yeshiva I used to go to asked me to write a bio for a newsletter they’re putting together… so I pretty much wrote that my life is this new smicha (ordination) program I joined…. though I only subtly hint that it’s through a messianic yeshiva, lol

>:-D

My mom sent this to me. I’m a very fortunate BT, to have such a thoughtful and supportive mother.

My only issue with this is the contrast: “…from a bad way of life and turns toward god.” 
I dislike how many (most?) religious people think that if you’re not playing for one of god’s teams you’re therefore living a “bad way of life.”
Just replacing the word “and” with the word “or” would have made this inoffensive and just as true, if not more-so.

foxtrotsky asked: as an official shiksa-demon-witch, i would like to formally invite you to the party in shiksa hell. bacon-wrapped scallops and flavored vodkas not on the list will be served, followed by chicken cordon bleu and mixed dancing. those dressed tznius and/or in frum looking levush will be refused at the door. please RSVP!

hahaha, thanks… I’m amused that shiksa hell boasts “mixed dancing”, lol

That’s fantastic, anon! Congratulations! =]

Anonymous asked: Yay!!! Really happy that you (almost) got the job! Is it close to where you live?

Thanks anon =]

It’s in Connecticut and I live in Queens, NY… so kinda far. My plan at the moment is to live there 3 days a week, and 4 days here in NY. It’s gonna be a really intense schedule, but I’m hoping that in the next few months I can find other work or a full time position at the place I’ll be at… so then I’ll just move to CT full time…

Anonymous asked: How did the interview go?

It was really long, like 3 hours.. I met with the awesome lady, which was awesome; also her boss, who was just a really rad dude. I was actually laughing while we spoke - not just pretending bc I was nervous, lol. And I met with some of the kids I’d be working with (it’s an education program, of sorts), and I got really good feedback from them. Sooo…. I’m, say, around 90% sure I got this =]
