The Readers of this Website
The results so far of the survey (lower right) are interesting. 129 people generally identify with the approach of this website (although apparently only 22 of these felt that they had benefited sufficiently to make a contribution), and another 38 sometimes identify with it.
What amazes me is that a whopping 83 people voted to say that they do not, and I assume that most of them are from the right (yes, I know that there are also skeptics who reject the very notion of a Creator and revelation). I'm not at all surprised that there are so many of these people who disagree with my approach - there are tens of thousands of Orthodox Jews who disagree with it! But what I do not understand is, what are all these people doing reading my website? Exploring alternate perspectives, because they are think that their existing Torah resources might not have all that there is to offer? Learning about the enemy, to know how to fight him? Or satisfying a secret, subconscious desire for forbidden literature?
Anyway, if your rabbinic authority says that you should stay away from reading material that is harmful to your selected spiritual path in life, I fully agree. Don't visit this website!
