No, you’re trying to say you couldn’t care less. If you could care less, it means you do care.

Eruv has gotta be near the peak of Talmudic logic.

I treat injured birds for a living (albeit not in New York) so I have to wonder how birds are affected.  Beyond that, I COULDN’T care less either.

I believe that the goal of a truly moral life should be to relieve suffering and promote happiness among living beings in the real world.  By contrast, I believe that much of religious doctrine . . . glorifies suffering and condemns happiness as sin, in favor of some abstract reward in a non-existent afterlife.

Judaism was always and still is about outer appearances.

Very true. It is by far the most dishonest major religion.

I am sorry to disagree but I think Is-fraud-lam gets to wear that crown. Judaism in comparison is not so bad.
