How could I be happy knowing that all the children and billions of ppl that die each day because of the US and powerful ppl that you submit to, have died with no life to live.
Is being unhappy, depressed, and gloomy going to change anything about those people?

Well, what are you going to do about it?
Be depressed and mopey your whole life?
Sure, that'll help change things.

So, people who aren't completely submerged in helpless, ineffectual, navel-gazing depression have a "narrow view"?

The evidence of God is reflected in the personalities of His creation.
You know, there's a fine line between philosopher and bullshit slinger.
I think to be a successful philosopher, one needs to have insight into the human condition, and the ability to think from many different viewpoints.
I don't think Chris is quite there yet with either of those two skills.
I would simply call him "introspective".
...to put it kindly.

I don't want ppl to get the wrong image of me because of a few enemies(i guess you could say), I did say I was going to get away from this site for awhile, as I intend to but I heard something yesterday that related directedly to this topic:
