Well my point was, if you need something physiologically or psychologically, how is that different than a christian needing God? I'm trying to
establish an argument for Shaunybaby's judgement that all christians are weak-minded and in need of a crutch.
Perhaps weak-minded was harsh...more 'destined' to become religious. If you go far enough back, we're all
decended from people who had
religious beliefs. Perhaps they were merely simple beliefs, in animal spirits, love of the land etc, but nonetheless somesort of religious belief. I
believe, like there could be or is a gay gene, that perhaps some people are more likely to be religious and spiritual. So maybe it's not your fault
if you have those beliefs, maybe you were destined all along, since you were born to die with faith.

This was from pages back..but someone said that morals are not a stem from God but man. How can man be the stem when they have proven to have less
morals than nature itstelf. Throughout history man has showen nothing but disrecpect for life itself. Explain to me how man deserves such an honor
to be the stem of morals.
There are some cultures in the world, that still live 'the old ways', you know of the land etc. However, there are also a few of those cultures that
cannot be 'self-sustaining'. This means they let their livestock over graze, use too much of the land for farming, kill too many animals in their
surrounding area and so on. Matter of fact, having a self-sustaining lifestyle is hard enough for simple cultures, let alone 1st world industrialized
Our morals may not be perfect, but neither is the land we stand on. We can try all we want to be civilised, it's more a dream than it's ever goig to
be reality. Which other species on this planet does the mother hold on to her baby for 16ish years? I'd say that's pretty good morals.
Just thought i'd read through the last couple pages and answer a few of the posts.
