I've long considered myself more agnostic than atheistic -- I don't know for sure that there is no God, I just don't necessarily believe that there is. But whether there is or there isn't, I do consider myself to be a Cultural Jew, or a Secular Jew at the very least.
Long story short: going to services on High Holy Days makes me feel connected to history -- mostly my own, and my family's. Plus, I like the music. But it made me sad to know that aaronbenedict and I would not be having one of our lively religious discussions regarding this holiday or the ones immediately following.
