I'm curious what people here think about Reconstructionist Judaism. Do you feel that it is a religion or that it's closer to atheism. For those who do not know what it is, here are two good links. The first is a longer more in depth explanation and the second will give a basic overview.

I was raised Jewish and even after I decided the idea of a god was bullshit, I still identified with Judaism, so I feel like this might be a good fit for me. They're logical (they admit the Torah was written by humans) but they keep the parts of Judaism that I really like (celebrations and sense of community). Do you guys feel that it is an atheist form of Judaism or just the logical evolution of it?
