What I would support is the idea that secular humanism never becomes the global default "belief".

You're in luck, secular humanism will eventually become the norm but not in your lifetime.

It is a tool of the antichrist.

Don't be childish.

Re: I'll Try And Answer Honestly...
Are there any other areas of you're life that you've started talking utter shite about Phat? Or is it just this religious shite? Are talking to your doctor about it?

I don't get the context of your statement. Are you attempting humor, irony, or honest criticism? Clarification will help my

Over the last few weeks you've turned from a nice if overly-Christian guy a bit confused about life the universe and everything to an unlikeable, aggressively pious, bullshit preaching idiot.

That's all, no humour, no irony.

You spout this stuff without any thought. It's stuff you've heard other religious nutters preach regularly but it's bollox.

Can you explain why you say that it's easier to live an antisocial, life than a prosocial decent life? Why do you say that is a good life harder to lead than a bad one?

I certainly find the opposite, I could no more rob a bank, rape a vulnerable victim, kick a blindman or commit any other serious crime than fly to the moon.

False dichotomy.

Then it's your false dichotomy

quote:

So why do you claim that it's easier to lead a' bad' life than a good 'life'?

Do you find crime easy to commit? Are you sure this isn't just some unquestioned religious verbiage that you've swallowed whole without actually thinking about it?

Let's turn that around.

Let's not. How about you answer my question?

Do you feel that your money and investments are freely obtained and are your right to responsibly manage? If it could be proven that exploitation of other nations throughout History has led to an artificially constructed advantage, (I can call it Western Privilege) would you be prepared to renegotiate a global consensus as to sharing of resources?

ffs Phat, what are you talking about? Try to answer the question, it was simple enough. Why do you think it's harder to lead a decent life than a 'bad' one? That's not my experience, is it yours?
