I have my doubts that you're a "Jewish Christian Buddhist."

I think the OP means that your bloodline could be so mixed that you are 'related' to people of all kinds. Having part of the same blood doesn't make you 'those people.' A diverse heritage alone will hardly affect how you behave. You're not going to automatically believe the planet is flat because your ancestor believed it. Religion works the same way. I believe primarily in nurture > nature.

Anyone ever heard of the stuff they used to say about black/white mixed children when slavery was still legal? They claimed that any percentage of 'black blood' in a person made that person black. A person could be 90% white and 10% black and still be enslaved.

And that's precisely my point. What exactly is the OP trying to say? We all have a mixed heritage because all human beings have a common ancestry. That is not the same as being a "Jewish Christian Buddhist," which is basically a meaningless assortment of words. I have my doubts that this person is a Semitic Christian convert who also believes the tenets of one of the non-theistic Buddhist faiths. So why say that?

I think the OP's want to share what he found is cool and has been took out of proportion although everyone is entitled to their opinion. I will say that because of this post and another user saying a little bit about blue bloods...im excited and kind of amped on what I may find in my little history

I'll say this; genetic diversity applies very much to humans. Some even consider it a large part of why women might cheat on their men. We were meant to mix it up.

As for my hypothetical reaction to finding out that I am everything genetically, well, I'd think of it as inheriting the strengths and weaknesses of all the different people of Earth.

This is something that I already know. People ask me what I am and I laugh. It would take a thousand years to explain such a thing. I am a human, but sometimes I am not even sure about that. I never once thought about classifying myself until I came across a kid that asked me why I never wore my hair "down". As if I could wear my semi-afro "down".

I would continue proclaiming Jesus as my savior and helping all that request of me. As if I would let my past alter my future. I do think that it would be a lovely story about how a Buddhist and a Christian fell in love. I am not a Christian but I believe God is the highest God. I admit there are other gods as does the bible but there is only one I will capitalize. Most likely though, people that marry out of their religion were not very strong in their faith so I doubt the title they claimed mattered much. Es no big deal ^_^

and I love your Avatar Fear-and-Hope

Well, I won't, because I'm not a pantheist. I do not believe in the oneness of all thing, that I am a distinct creature from you or Mr Obama, in short, an individual, is an evident truth. But should I accept the unity of all thing, belonging to a great catholic of some sort, then, it wouldn't make a blind bit of difference how I live my life, I do not invest much into metaphysics, nor do I expect to get much out of it in return.


A Pantheist, Is that someone who steals panties, or is into ecchi anime featuring panties, Just kidding.

I wouldn't do anything, I already know I'm part Irish, Scots, and Welsh, and German, So what If I find out that I have some Asian dna in me, which I doubt since I don't have any of the physical/mental traits.
