Wow, the "But Tommy hit me first" defense never worked for my parents, but I guess it did with yours, eh?

It is OK to do wrong if wrong has been done to you.

Interesting Christian morality you've got there.

It's one thing to be tempted, another to yield. Jesus was tempted and He had the right answers. Christians should have them too, and do have them. When they steal, they just ignore them, because the sensation of taking something surreptitiously is so adrenaline.

Economic consequences notwithstanding.

Re: Hitting the nail on the head
I couldn't have said it better myself!
I suppose, however, that we could then blame all of our addictions and predispositions on adrenaline or some similar

It is my opinion that everything we do is subject to chemicals, either from within us or put within us. Blame is definitely ascribable to the chemicals we chew or puff.

Now, all we have to do is identify the chemical that makes us nuts, let's say testosterone in men and what little bit of it women have, and we are all set to be as benign as mud.
