Hi Sammy Jean,

I said we humans need to use our innate ability to empathize.
In one of your earlier posts you mentioned this was hardwired in us.
My question is, how, where, and why did this innate ability get hardwired into us?
God Bless,

Hi Perdition,

I was merely pointing out that I find God's "morality" objectionable and would not consider his proclamations to be moral, so even if I did believe in him, I wouldn't think he was a great god.
What is so objectionale about God's morality?
There is much that is objectionale about the morality of religion.
The God I serve gave me two rules to live by.
1. Love God with everything you are.
2. Love your neighbor as much as you love yourself.
Now you and everybody else here can dispense with number one.
But if everyone in the world would keep number two.
Our jails would be empty.
There would be no homeless.
There would be no hunger.
There would be no pain inflicted by one human being on another.
Now please explain how us making decisions as to what is moral or what is not moral is better than that.
God Bless,
