Seriously, are your reading comprehension skills really this bad?

I think he posts simply because he likes his own vapid deepities. Smokin

They're even worse than you think. Everything he thinks he know, he learned by rote at Jebus camp. (I thought the idiot had been banned.)

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Like in that movie?

I had no idea what happened to him but ws pleased when he was not posting.

He is the epitamony of that old saying, "A fool has more questions than a professor has answers".

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

You have nothing to offer but deepities and it is very tiresome. Get help Pops, you need it.
Moral realist.

I believe in universal morality. Figured I could post some since th topic seemed be challenging people to do it. Poor reading comprehension I guess.

Ahhh... you mean like the religious wars advancing peace [sic] in India with the Animists, Christians, Hindus, and Muslims, or the Shiite Muslims, Sunni Muslims, and Yazidi in Iraq, or Gaza with the Jews, Muslims, and Christians, or the Christians and Muslims in the Philippines, or Sri Lanka with the Buddhists and Hindus, or Sudan with Animists, Christians and Muslims, or the Animists, Christians, and Muslims in Uganda?

Didn't say anything about organised religion, thanks for the assumption though.

Don't forget conflicts like Bosnia-Croatia, where the devout killed each other over who was the right kind of devout.
Again, peaceful unity has shit to do with murder.

Want of want?

Dodgy

Tell me, oh guru, I have attained selflessness and I have no greed (except maybe for that second helping of bread and butter pudding) as I have no possessions of any value but I have a question ... do you want me to eliminate all want, wheresoever I find it, or are you preaching that I should exhibit desirouslessness?

Just checking.

Hobo
All want and desire as possible for you subjectively.

Nonsense, there are benefits of greed and want. Lack of greed or want is not even close to being an objectively moral thing.



And you can't see past your hand.

Remove self favoritism from any equation; what do you get?

The absence of the only variable; utter constant for testing and verification.
