@Definitions try chabad it will give you a very different perspective from what you learned until now... If you want...
Maybe. I'm quite stubborn though (...כי עם קשה ערף) :) and like I said before
the way I see the frum yeshivish world today is an accurate depiction of what living with Torah shebal peh would look like.
And I don't like shopping for a religion

Chabad interprets "כי עם קשה ערף" le'ma'alusa- its a good fit already:)

You are jewish and you seem to embrace it- which is great. You just need to see emes'keit in religion- something that is sometimes hard to find/see even in chabad. However, when you see the Rebbe and his Torah it all because clear.

Faking, mainly because I'm embarrassed to change. College, I don't consider financial success as the primary element of "making it". If anything I'd consider trade school. Much less debt and years required. Although I never thought about the idea that I can meet a Jewish girl in college. For that it's actually a pretty good idea.



You really need to get out more... Cant you get an uber on Friday nights to the city? or is that a deorysa? LOL


Seriously speaking, you really just need to get on top of your issues. No disrespect at all, but you are not at all learned enough to be a good apikores. You are trying for the "intellectual apikores" approach, but it really doesn't fit for someone with a basic yeshiva high-school education.  - You need to at least know shas bavli well if you are going to decide you "disagree". Or at the very minimum have a serious kefiradik history degree. Together with some philosophy...




, why not just become an atheist or similar.

Because you are not an intellectual apikores, it doesn't suit you, you dont have arguments for any of these..

Again no disrespect, but for someone seeking clarity, how on earth is chabbad a good address?

I may be missing something, but Chabad is all about nistar and secrets. Not clarity.
It works well if you believe everything, but its the last place I would send someone who needs everything logical.

You obviously have not been exposed to much of what chabad offers... (no offense intended)

IMHO exposing the internal is part of the journey to get real clarity.

But it may not be the path for all... BH there is a God who runs the world, and i am not Him. I am just saying that it works really well for a lot of people , myself included.

I'm so confused because you seem so yeshivish. Are you still a wolf in sheeps clothing? Or do you dress and act openly like your beliefs? Maybe this whole post is bull.

If I would be defining you based on all your posts but this,I would say that you are a "yeshivish guy from oot".

Yeah, it was bull. I would still refer you to get help. But it's non of my gdb.



Is cursing part of your type of yeshivish? Or is it only for the oot types that you clearly abhor? "gdb" doesn't mean Gosh Darn Business like you tried to quickly make up for. It's using Hashem's name to curse. You really need to apologize.

Considering how much editing you do to your posts, you would think that you would at least recall the curses...
To err is human, to blame someone else shows management potential.

Please let's not get into that. PM him if it really bothers you. This thread was made for a different reason.

Even according to me it's deoraysa from אל־יצא איש ממקמו.

Seems like a classical R' Mechanic line. So until everyone knows all sides clearly they're not considered a maamin either?

Check out the Ani maamin thread.

Then please don't put me and him together. Btw, I'm not at all trying to convince you into anything. Just pointing out some obvious items
