: I'm glad you found it funny. I find the first quote disgusting and the second tragic. You're right about the concealed weapons though, it has side-tracked the original point which was that morality is cultrally relative. Some cultures find killing perfectly acceptable, like Islam, whereas others deem it morally corrupt to clone embryoes. Morality is obviously a human invention, so why should we waste space with a stupid monument which displays divine judgement; we're more moral than the character depicted in the old testament anyway.
--- Yeah, and without religion morality will just keep changing with every little rationalization. This world has enough evil in it already without the last vestages of morality being sucked out.
: I think it's about time we stopped pussy-footing around with religion, we should treat it with the contempt it deserves. Did you know that 50% of American voters believe that the entire universe began later than the Middle Stone Age.
--- Oh noooooo, what ever will we do! We all know sience has never been wrong! *cough cough environmental scientist nuts of the 80's who said we were bringing on a global ice age by burning fossil fuels*
