Do Jewish People Believe in God?
I've had a few conversations with Jews over the net and discovered that my preconceived notion of what Jewish means are not entirely accurate.
I presumed that when someone referred to themselves as Jewish that it meant they were of the Jewish faith. It turns out that is not necessarily the case. It's more about tradition and not actually a belief in Yahweh.
I've only gotten a small sampling of this so am not sure how widespread this is. From my current understanding you have religious Jews(the ones with the facial hair decorations) and regular Jews.
If anyone has a better grasp of this, I would appreciate your input.
One thing that is interesting is if my presumptions are correct, there are more atheists than the numbers may show. Someone is going to identify themselves as Jewish and be placed in the theist column.
