Lets be honest Jews saying that they're a race of people is like clowns lobbying for a church and tax exemption just because they dress funny and have big noses.

The closest thing to a jewish "race" would be the hebrew ethnicity. But even then, just because you're of hebrew ethnicity or israeli citizenship, doesn't mean you're a jew. As in that you believe in judaism. And people of all ethnicities can be jewish.
Besides, all humans alive today are the same race, so... It's also biologically inaccurate.

Judaism is a religion, but it's closely tied with a culture and ethnicity.

No, because there's no such thing as this "Jewdiesm" thing you speak of.

Jewish on the other hand can be used to refer to both people who practice Judaism and people of a certain ethnicity (generally white Hebrews).

I don't why I get all these words wrong (¬_¬;)

And that's another thing I don't get. If it's a religion any race can follow it.

If you want to be more specific with the terms, it should be the Semitic people which does refer to an ethnic group. However, it's not really used that much nowadays.

In biological taxonomy, race is an informal rank in the taxonomic hierarchy, below the level of subspecies.

In evolutionary ecology, an ecotype, sometimes called ecospecies, describes a genetically distinct geographic variety, population or race within a species, which is adapted to specific environmental conditions.


Does having more melanin *darker skin* make you more suitable towards an environment where there is qualitatively more sunlight? Maybe, depending on what negligible degree of difference you consider an advantage.

Does following a random deity, any deity or particular set of made up social rules make you more suited for survival in the desert? Tundra? Ocean Floor? Unless you religous types are really holding out on some sick ass superpowers then...NO, not really.

Of course it doesn't. But leaving the thread open does allow for some education to happen, in spite of of 52infinity's insensitive way of asking.

Now, y'see, I would always, and I mean always, see this happen on Usenet--
The group would always get right, right, riiiiiiiiiight up to the big tippy-tippy, cliff-edge point of finally laughingingstock-ing the troll off the group for good, one little tap would send him tumbling over with a Goofy-whoop...And then the troll, as usual in his own little world, would post some contemptuously lazy Trying Way Too Hard thread, for the robotically narcissistic sake of franchise--"What's the best SUV for running over nuns and orphans?"
And the "serious debate" would suddenly get fifteen pages of utterly, utterly, stack-of-bibles believing responses, dissecting the issue to within an inch of its life with six-paragraph quotes from Wikipedia and university websites. ("But, wouldn't that be illegal? I have a GMC, and our town very strictly patrols the school crossings.")
Goal in sight, and then back to Square One, over-f***in'-night.

Now, we've learned to expect the "My, what a charming, colorful gentleman adding such gadfly topics to our little discussion salon!" from you, of course, lord have we ever, but twenty years--TWENTY. YEARS, come next March--and I have never yet been once able to explain the scientific phenomenon. Let alone find a cure.
And don't think Prevention alone has worked.
