Quote# 48203

Of course, the secular progressives do not believe that there are such things as good and evil. That is why they tend towards evil.

What's your excuse for tending toward idiocy?

aaa

Good and Evil are just subjective titles.

"Of course, the secular progressives do not believe that there are such things as good and evil."

I've got a wake-up call for you.

Maybe you think I'm evil, but that's mostly a matter of perspective.

They do, however, believe that there is a right and wrong, or at least some palatable option, in any given situation, and tend to choose based on the available information.

Your ability to choose is severely hampered by reliance on invisible authority.

Hitler by everyone's standards was an evil bastard. But Hitler and the the people of Germany at the time all thought they were doing the world some good. I'm willing to bet at no point did Hitler step back from what he was doing and say damn I'm and evil person.

Actually I do believe in good and evil, I just don't believe that good and evil are handed down from on high by an angry sky pixie.

Really. Because I find that bombing an abortion clinic to show how sacred a cluster of cells is to be pretty high on the evil scale...just FYI.

Only because you define "evil" as "not voting Republican."

"the secular progressives do not believe that there are such things as good and evil."

Please show credible evidence supporting this assertion.


"That is why they tend towards evil."

You're going to need to prove that one, too, jacka**

No, it's religious people who don't believe that there are such things as good and evil. Otherwise, how do they explain a loving and omnipotent God who allows earthquakes and babies born with trisomy 13*?

*if you don't know what this is, don't Google it and look at the pictures - you really don't want to see them.

Secular progressives?

What a stupid buzzword.

There was a little girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good she was very, very good,
And when she was bad she was horrid.

This isn't pertinent, but I've always liked it.

John: I didn't realize that many babies with trisomy 13 survived birth!

It's as logical as saying that you tend to believe in horoscopes because you think they're rubbish.

I'd be offended, except I can guess at this person's definition of "evil."

I am impressed that these people can make "progressive" seem like an insult.

Well done.

Now, please learn how to tie your own shoelaces.

Every stride made in regards to liberty and civil liberties was made by progressive secularists. Those strides were made because the progressivists believed that freedom was good and oppression and discrimination were evil.

I believe, no know your a worthless piece of human flotsam.
Remarkably high percentage of numbnuts conservatives commenting at the times.
The mentality of our candidate maybe a worthless bitch/sonofabitch but their ours.

Wait. What?

Wait. Beside that being untrue, that still doesn't make sense.

I am suddenly drawn to the competence-confidence dichotomy.
To alleviate those old familiar spasms of cognitive dissonance, I choose to invoke the mood of Opposite Day.

I have compared public religiosity to public masturbation, and can perhaps tighten the analogy somewhat with the observation that religious visions, hallucinations, and epileptic seizures each involve the amygdalae. The priesthood over the ages learned how to manipulate the effects of these nuclei, and the fringe groups have apparently learned to "do" themselves without drugs. I'm not reeeeally sure I'd want to treat myself that way.

Wup, just reminded meself. Lexapro time!


Does forehead really rhyme with horrid?

Lawful, Chaotic, or Neutral Evil?

I don't know. I believe in good and evil. I believe the majority of people are good. I believe people who love their families and give to charity are good. I believe Mother theresa and Martin Luther King, Jr were good. I believe that pedophiles, rapists and homocidal maniacs are bad. I believe Hitler and Lenin were bad.
And then there's stupid. I believe that everyone is stupid in one way or another and that stupid leads people to do bad things. I believe fundamentalists of all religions are stupid. I believe Bush is stupid and that most of the governments of the world have been stupid for a long, long time. I think that they didn't mean to be evil. I believe they thought what they did was good at the time. But they're loobies and bad things happened.
