    I believe Ireland had been invaded and colonized by the English, the Normans, and the Vikings at different times over the years. Was there anybody else involved? Did these conquering peoples recognize Ireland as it's own state or place or did they only recognize what was colonized?

    I wanted to apologize for my indecisiveness and insecurity concerning my ancestry and religion. I think my mental illness may have played a role in it. I hope you guys do not hate me.

    I gave it some thought and I realized it was silly to think any of you guys could hate me for being indecisive or insecure.

    I remember I visited a synagogue about four years ago when I had a car. It was a good experience. I believe the topic of the day and the sermon was about rebuilding the third temple in Jerusalem. Some of the service was in Jewish though so, being and English speaking Christian, I did not understand it. I have been considering converting to Judaism for a while now but I think I will stay Christian, it is what I am comfortable with. Everyone was open to me being there so I had a good time!

    As you guys have seen I have gone through a lot of thought concerning my ancestry and religion. As for my ancestry I am a German, Polish, Irish, and Russian American. As for my religious beliefs I am a Christian.

    I think I had read or heard somewhere that the Jews were actually never slaves in Egypt as the Book of Exodus says but actually were well paid artisans and workers that helped out the Egyptians with building projects and returned to Israel with gold and silver. Is that true?

    They were good artisans, they made the golden calf, they had gold and silver according to the bible.
    Think this way the South wanted to separate from the union , the North did not wanted give them independence . So the Jews moved to the Sinai desert, but the Egyptian did not wanted.

    Why did the Egyptians not want the Jews to leave Egypt?

    I have discovered my last name Meyer is shared by the German, English, and Jewish cultures but all three surnames have different origins.
