No... I agree with your last bit about a perfect world being possible IF everyone were willing to work together. BUT, that is the problem. How many
different extremists groups do we have on this planet? Not all "extremists" have to be physically violent either. Groups like Westboro for
In my country the biggest problem would be the Christians and the atheists. But I would have to agree with atheists on one thing, the world cannot be
perfect as long as religions exists. My reasoning for such an opinion is because many people DO use violence because of their religion, or so they
claim. What religion would this "perfect world" be? Would there be no religion?
You are wrong, the reason is not me alone, as you say. There is a whole world full of humans out there who are unwilling to agree with other people. I
am merely an example, a very small and rather insignificant one, just as you are.
How would you advise getting started on this perfect world? I don't know you so I can't say whether or not you are religious and which religion you
follow if you are. But if you are religious, then what would you advise we do with everyone who disagrees with your religious opinions? History has
proven that it is truly impossible for everyone to get along as long as we have multiple religions.
I'm not an atheist by the way, and to be honest, I find many of them to be obnoxious.
As far as the abortion being death bit... Yeah, you are killing something that is technically "living." However, how "living" is it if it requires a
life support system? Take away the mother and it dies. My point isn't that abortion isn't death. My point is that a quick and much less painful death
is a much better alternative than a slow painful death and the only people who would ever disagree with that opinion are either sane people who are
religious, or crazy people.
The reason I ever bring religion into play is because of the oxymoron of which we face in conservatives here in America. You see, many are against
abortion because of their religion and would proudly admit that because they believe that their religion is the ultimate answer. However, the majority
of those people are also very against welfare. That's where we are presented with a problem. Have many more poor children being born, thus increasing
the need for "welfare," or don't have them being born. Or we could just let them starve to death.
So basically what I'm trying to say is that it doesn't make any sense for someone who is against welfare to poor people to be against abortion, if
they are truly "good" religious people and do not support making other living beings suffer. Teenagers aren't capable of providing for a family and
there aren't any jobs out there that would pay them enough to do so... except for things like drug dealing and prostitution of course. So if a teen
has an abortion then that means less welfare money being needed.
Don't take any of this the wrong way. I personally would prefer a person have the child and just have welfare assistance to help support the child if
it is needed. But then again if the person is going to be an abusive or neglectful parent I would opt for an abortion over the lifetime of suffering
that the foster system most often offers.
