Can I Introduce Myself
I just wanted to introduce myself. My name's Joe and I'm from Scotland. Was brought up Jewish, became a non practicing Jew and am now a Jewish Atheist.
My wife is from the US and was a member of the AOG church so that makes for some interesting discussions over the dinner table. Just lucky I can cook.

Welcome!

Another Scot... that's awesome. Also, I think you may be one of the few former Jews.

Welcome to the forum,

Leave your highbrow humor at the door.

Why refer to yourself as a Jewish Atheist as if Jew is a nationality? I notice a lot of Jews refer to themselves this way. Why is that?

Probably because it's a legitimate description. Many of the original pioneers who cam to Israel in the early part of the 20th century were Jewish atheists. They understood and appreciated many of the cultural aspects but deplored the religious superstitions.

Oh, little FYI to make your post a little more discernible:

Put your cursor all the way down past the line break when you quote. Your responses are being melded with the quote.

Do you wear a kilt? Because FSM_Scot does. Laughat
Do you like Monty Python? How about Haggis? Are you related to Braveheart? Hobo
