    I know Shoggoths aren’t Jewish things because I just googled them and found out what they are, but nonetheless here’s a Jewish question: Why don’t Jews want everyone who’s not a Jew to be Jewish? Or at least know about Jewishness. With most good things that people know about, their goodness impels you to share them.

  3. Well the socio-historical answer is that Jews were a minority religion, so as to avoid persecution and conversion the rabbis decided to stop proselytizing. In the Roman empire Jews proselytized quite a bit and successfully. The medieval rabbis were happy if everybody followed the so-called Noahide code — belief in God and some basic ethics. From my point of view though just because I like my own face doesn’t mean I want everybody on Earth to have the same face.
